This was the first time that my husband and I tried an airbnb and our experience could not have been more positive. Ursula's place was so spacious, clean and tidy and we love the way they had it decorated. Our room and bathroom were on a separate floor so it felt very private too. Ursula and her husband greeted us with open arms and made us feel welcome the minute we walked in the door. They made breakfast for us and it was delicious. Our conversations with them were warm and friendly. We will definitely go back.

Jim and Ursula are very friendly and kind. The house is easy to get to and convenient to VT stadium. The room and bathroom we used were extremely clean and comfortable. I highly recommend this airbnb.

Ursula and Jim were the nicest couple and wonderful host. I had 2 very restful nights sleep and the accomadation were cozy and clean. Great breakfast and overall super happy with my stay. They are about 8 minute drive to Blacksburg town.

This was our first experience using Airbnb and it could not of been any better. Our hosts treated us like friends and their place was very clean and comfortable. It is also a very nice location right on the outskirts of town. We really enjoyed the hospitality our hosts showed us. The breakfast was first class. We really can't say enough good things about the time we spent at Ursula's and Jim's house, it was much better than I thought it could be.

We enjoyed our stay! It was good to be back in Blacksburg and very nice to be so close to campus when the cosest available hotel room is over 30 minutes away. We prefer entire house vs. a room in a house but it was easy to find privacy because of the semi private entry and the fact that you have the entire floor to yourselves.

We are empty nesters, who love to have a house full of people. We enjoy sharing our home with family and friends. Other times quiet evenings watching the sun set or spending the evening in the hot tub work just fine for us too. Jim is a great cook! Breakfasts are most delicious at our house! Coffee is brewing in the morning.

Blacksburg and the New River Valley area have so much to offer from hiking to biking, wineries and a wonderful music scene.

When we can get away, we enjoy traveling around the US and aboard. Camping is a new favorite adventure.
