Right on the main street in Buchanan, VA. Five of us were traveling from Montana to SC via the Blue Ridge Parkway. Friends from VA rode out and met us at the James River House. We had plenty of space on the first and second floors. Each couple had their own room and bathroom. We did not need the bunk room in the basement, but could have rented it if more of our friends had joined us. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The lines were fluffy and inviting. The kitchen was stocked with many extras. We sat on the front porch for most of the evening visiting. What a great place to meet up with friends.
