Frodo's (Electricity)

Frodo would feel very much at home in this underground stone cottage built beside the river. Stone walls, slate floor, sod roof, large stone fireplace, gothic stained glass window - you get the picture. Stepping into Frodo's is like stepping back in time - about a thousand years. No electricity, no running water, a portable potty for night use, and it's small. But there is enough room for a full sized bed, an anitique "throne" chair sitting before the large window whose shutters open up to an utterly magical view of the cascading river. It has everything but the round door which Frodo might prefer. 

Banana Patch (no electricity)

A little bit of the South Pacific in the Blue Ridge Mountains is the way one guest described our newest accommodation. With steep tropical roofs and sitting on stilts, the five full size beds are named after the Pacific islands of Bora Bora, Morea, Kauai, Rarotonga & Samoa. Set in a simi-circle and separated by banana trees, each bed is curtained with burlap made from coffee sacks from around the world which provide both privacy and an exotic ambience. With the nearby sound of the mountain creek it's easy to imagine the ocean surf on a tropical island.
