Fall, Football, Festivals and Changing Leaves

Somehow, once September comes, it feels like Fall - especially in the morning and evenings.  We've had our windows open to enjoy the cool dry air.  Wouldn't you know, the first home football game for Virginia Tech, it rained all day.  Everyone is blaming the rain for VT's loss!

The leaves haven't really stared to change, but there was a nice article in Sunday's Roanoke Times about the spectacular views for leaf colors right here along our Rte 42 from Newport to New Castle!  Come and enjoy the colors and some football and all the many festivals here in The New River Valley.

Octoberfest will be held at Mountain Lake from the end of September through the end of October. We are just 'over the mountain', about a 20 minute drive. The 28th Annual Craig County Fall Festival will be held on October 9th in downtown New Castle, featuring live local music, an antique car show and tours of the Old Brick Hotel & Cabins, restored by the Craig County Historical society.  Blacksburg's 2nd annual Brew Do will be held from noon to five on October 30th.  There will be more than 20 breweries showcasing over 60 varieties of beer while the Jugbusters and Gov't Plant provide entertainment.

There's always entertainment at The Huffman House with all the animals!!  Relax, enjoy the creek, the animals and the delicious breakfasts and then attend one of the many goings on in the area.

Virginia Vacations

Include Virginia Tech football in planning your next Virginia Vacation!  We still have some availability.  Check our online calendar at

The fall is a perfect time for hiking or biking in Virginia. Our scenic Rte 42 and surrounding back roads provide ideal biking routes for a weekend getaway!  The nearby Appalachian Trail takes you away from all the hustle and bustle of 'real life', gives you a little exercise and relaxes your entire being!

Sit by our creek, indulge in our gourmet breakfasts, meet all the farm animals, visit local Virginia Wineries and enjoy the many restaurants in Blacksburg and Giles County.  We have something for everyone!
