My wife and I are musicians. We play mostly old time, traditional mountain music, and some folk. We use the Creeper Trail a lot to bike ride and walk the dog. We also kayak in the nearby lakes. And we love to travel in our Roadtrek.
This is a farm, so have to be fairly handy.

Wonderful folks and a great furbaby. We had a very enjoyable, albiet too short of a time sharing stories, music, food and wine. We hope to see them again one day maybe at their great host location next time. Safe travels.
Good communication, minimal needs, no worries with the gentle friendly dog, no problems! Happy they stopped by ;-)
Jim was a delightful guest, hope to see him again sometime -- either here or at his place!
Had Jim here for one night very nice man our visits time was limited because I was recovering from the flu. He and his wife are musicans and sometime like to hear Them work charities and fund raisers. Maybe we can go to their place sometime. He is welcome here anytime.
We extended our stay to take in the Virginia Creeper Trail (17 miles of gorgeous scenery) and a private concert performed by our gracious hosts. A real highlight to our trip.
Everything about FdlGrl was nice. The location and the views are superb. The hosts are the best. They invited us in their home for wine and cheese. They then proceeded to play music and sing for us. She played the fiddle and he played his one-of-a-kind guitar. My wife and I were greatly impressed by their hospitality. This was my wife's first boondocking experience. Off to a great start!
Wauw, what a spot. The view from the deck great. The hosts are very friendly and helpfull. Like their music and singing. Next time we will go out kayaking with Jim!

My favorite place to boondock yet! Some of the kindest and most generous people you will ever meet. If you're lucky enough to stay with them, you absolutely MUST ask them to play you some music. The fiddle/guitar duo will sooth your soul.
We stayed with FdlGrl & GuitarMan late September 2017. They had just returned from a gig (musician-talk for 'job' - i know because i was one earlier in life) and greeted us warmly. They guided us to some wonderful mountain views, and we actually had a great view from our RV. We enjoyed a guiet, peaceful night - didn't even know we had a herd of deer next to us until we went outside next morning and spooked them !
Okay, i made-up "GuitarMan" as the rules say "Do not include real names". I hope no one is offended.
What we are really looking forward to is catching this couple perform at the Blue Ridge Music Center.
Thanks again for sharing your mountain top !
FldGrl agreed to host us and was very helpful with details. However, our plans changed and we had to get home early and could not stay with FldGrl. We did, however let them know two days in advance that we would not make it. I hope to stay at their place in the future when we are in the Abingdon area.
