Come stay with us at our historic mountain farmhouse located in the Jefferson National Forest about 45 minutes drive from Roanoke, Virginia. You'll find a comfortable vacation farmhouse with loads of country living activities like fishing, hunting, hiking, biking, canoeing, creek tubing, swimming, listening to mountain music, and just plain relaxing.

Here's what other have to say about their stay...

Beth Fulton tells about her family's visit with a lovely video and song.

"Thank you for the experience of a lifetime! Surber Station is a beautiful home! You have done a great job decorating and preserving Surber. Thank you again. We had a wonderful stress free weekend! P.S. Loved the books! Especially Robert Frost's poetry! " B. Zysk New Castle, VA

"Being a Botetourt native now transplanted to Quebec, Canada, it's been really special to come back to my roots. Pierre and I left 1 foot of SNOW behind so you can imagine how the warm weather (up in the 80s some afternoons) and all these glorious spring flowers have uplifted our spirits... so much beauty all around!! Of course, your homeplace is a real gem and we've loved living here this week doing things we like the best: Day #1 - biking the old rail bed as far as we could. Day #2: canoeing with you two...the greatest of guides. Day #3: Hiking Roaring Run and the Iron Ore Trail. ... Wow, what more could one wish for?" H. Greffard Quebec, Canada

"Thank you so much for the wonderful stay. We couldn't have had a better time. Our time here was like a little piece of heaven." D. Miller PA

"Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful homeplace! Staying here brought back so many childhood memories of staying at "Grandma's". Picking bluegrass music in the old cabin room was a special treat. We love what you have done to preserve this piece of history! We are looking forward to future stays at Surber Station." C. Day Roanoke, VA

"Your hard work and attention to detail in restoring Surber Station have made this a super vacation spot. For 31 years I've been coming to the area--this is the best visit ever. The forests have never been prettier or our hunt more enjoyable. What great people you are!" C. Smink PA
