Our historic mountain farmhouse is located in the Jefferson National
Forest about 45 minutes drive from Roanoke, Virginia. After four years of restoration, it
became a comfortable vacation rental farmhouse for ten years with loads of country
living activities like fishing, hunting, hiking, biking,
canoeing, creek tubing, swimming, listening to mountain
music, and just plain relaxing.
Beth Fulton sums up those ten years as she tells of her family's visit with a lovely
video and song.
The Surber homeplace is now a peaceful mountain writing and editing retreat for Jack and Carol
Lewis. Carol is a professional copyeditor and children's author, and Jack is an author of
technical books and ebooks, and now a historical novel, Storm Coming, published in 2017. Click
