Retreat & Relax in Spectacular NRV Views at a Resort-like setting on Claytor Lake.

Escape to a spectacularly private, resort-like retreat established along 500 feet of pristine New River waterfront.

This Homestead began as a cabin, and has elegantly expanded over its history to become a showplace along upper Claytor Lake.


About Us

Built originally as a two story log cabin on a scenic bend of the New River, this original Homestead is especially designed to accommodate groups of 10 or more who seek to enjoy area activities, yet enjoy the natural surroundings of Virginia's New River Valley.

Located just minutes off Interstate 81 in Draper, VA, near the Draper Mercantile and just a short drive from area colleges-- it's the perfect escape when you visit the NRV.

What's better than a WIN?... it's having your favorite college friends and joining together to hang out in the NRV and share old times.


Arrive Friday night, we'll have everything ready for game day via concierge services to suit your tailgate needs. Grab a to-go breakfast and head to the game.

Avoid the hassle with a private driver who can get you there & back. Afterwards, escape the bar scene to enjoy an evening bonfire and storytelling.
