Nestled in the Heart of Fries Virginia
Nestled in a scenic valley on the banks of the pristine New River in SW Virginia, lies the small town of Fries (pronounced “freeze”). Surrounded by the peaks of the Blue Ridge mountains, Fries is fast becoming a premier vacation destination with an emphasis on outdoor recreation. In the heart of this small town, you will find our RiverPeek cottage. It’s here, you will begin to unwind, relax, and enjoy all the beauty this area has to offer. The New River is famous for its fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and bird watching. The New River Trail is everyone’s favorite for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. Don’t forget, Fries is also the cradle of Bluegrass music with weekly jam sessions and festivals throughout the year. We invite you to explore what Fries and RiverPeek have to offer. Then come see us. It will be a place you will come to love. We promise.
303 West Main, the robin’s egg blue cottage named “River Peek” allows you to peek at the river from the front and back yards, and even hear the water spill over the dam at times. The grassy backyard is perfect for cookouts, s’mores around the fire pit or just stretching out.
Our cottage sleeps up to six people, having two spacious bedrooms, one with a king bed, the second with two extra long twins. There is also a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. Linens are all included, and the bath has plenty of fluffy towels.
The eat-in kitchen is fully stocked with just about everything a cook might need, including range, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, toaster and coffee pot. You’ll also find cookware, dishes, blender and utensils. For outside grilling a Weber charcoal grill sits near the picnic table in the backyard, as well as a fire pit for s’mores!
Our comfortable living room provides cable TV and DVD with a selection of movies, a lending library and of course, WIFI. Feel free to borrow any of the fishing poles, but don’t forget to acquire a VA fishing license first (we can help you with that, too!)
We are happy to supply other indulgences to make your vacation special. See our list of add-on options, as well as help with outing suggestions such as river floats, bike rentals, guided fishing trips and music venues/concerts.
