This was such a sweet, quaint and quiet getaway place! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the amenities, view and breakfast! Can't want to return. A little hideaway right over the North Carolina boarder!!

Before starting our trek on the Crooked Road Music Heritage Trail, we spent a couple days at the Old Fiddler's Convention in Galax. This was the PERFECT place to feel like you were in the middle of nowhere, yet, close enough to town and the highway. The proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway is awesome, as you are only 20 minutes from Mt. Airy NC, another great destination. We found the cabin to be personal, cozy and perfect. We had neighbors, but still felt completely private. The hot tub on the porch overlooking the Blue Ridge mountains is simple breathtaking. The breakfast delivered to the cabin were perfect and the proprietors were just enough hands-off to give you that secluded feeling and accessible enough if you needed anything. We could have spent an entire week there and just traveled out from the cabin. It is truly a bit of paradise.

We spent one night in the 'vintage view' cabin and absolutely loved it! We arrived to a warm cabin, lights and music on, with the addition of a Christmas tree and fairy lights around the bed. It had a wonderful feel and was very romantic. We went for a run in the woods, came back and used the hot tub for hours, cooked in the fully complete kitchen and had a great nights sleep. This cabin has everything you need - we wish we could have stayed longer. Breakfast was delivered the next morning and was delicious (pancakes). My only suggestion would be to sweep away some of the cobwebs from the hard to reach spots.

Just spent one night at the Fiddlers Roost in the Owl's Nest cabin. We loved it. We were back East visiting family for the holidays and needed a little time to ourselves. This was the perfect place. Very peaceful. The owners had gone in and turned on the lights, turned on the heat and had music playing upon arrival. It was very welcoming and such a treat. The breakfast was delicious. We really wish we could have spent a few more nights. We are planning on making this a little tradition when we are back East visiting family. Thank you!

Stayed at the Fiddler's Roost, cabin five (Owl's nest) for our second wedding anniversary. When we were planning this trip we wanted to stay somewhere in Virginia that would have beautiful scenery and hiking. We wanted something cozy and more isolated and ideally I wanted a hot tub looking out over the mountains. We were so lucky to find Fiddler's Roost which met all our requirements. The cabin was a perfect size for two people and had all the things we needed for making lunch/dinners. The breakfast served each morning was fabulous and very delicious. It was so peaceful getting to eat breakfast each morning on our porch. We decided to treat ourselves to the wine and cheese basket which made for a very romantic picnic at Stone Mountain park in North Carolina. Fiddler's Roost is within an hours drive of several wineries, the Blue Ridge Music Center, The New River State Park (VA), and the Stone Mountain State Park in NC. The Blue Ridge Parkway was beautiful and well worth a drive both north and south. Galax is close by and is a charming little town. Only thing to note is we didn't have cell cover (AT&T) at the cabin, Galax, or in the areas of VA we explored. We also didn't have data coverage anywhere. So we were truly disconnected from the world! We had a fantastic vacation and hope to come back!

Room Tip: Owl's nest shared a drive way with another cabin and you could see the cabin from the porch.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Owl's Nest cabin at Fiddler's Roost. Just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, all cabin are nestled on the side of a mountain - very quiet and peaceful and totally removed from commercialism. We had a large front porch with rockers and a table that was the arrival point for our hot breakfast - delivered around 9 AM. The porch has a hot tub for two that we soaked in for hours, after having built a small fire in the fire pit below the porch. Plenty of wood available in the forest. The living area was cozy and comfortable, and the kitchen/dining area was fully equipped except the food you could bring to cook. The bed was comfy and the had plenty of towels. My only suggestion was a shelf near the hot tub to place your beverage as you soaked. A TRULY wonderful stay in a quiet haven in the woods!

Room Tip: Ask the manager for a cabin with a great view.

We encountered Fiddlers Roost online, seeking out a convenient location for a family gathering.. While I'm sure this would also be a wonderful romantic getaway, what a great setup this was for our family reunion! We rented the larger cabin and used it as a "hub", while family members enjoyed the independence of having individual cabins. We felt so at home, grilling, making s'mores by the fire pit..swinging on the porch.. Andy and Tempe were warm and wonderfully accomodating.. Each and every member of my family raved the entire weekend..what a success! We're already talking about going back!!!
