ATTENTION ALL BIRDERS!
A recent guest brought to our attention a link to information about Warbler Road right off the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway. Our guest was here for a birthday celebration and to check out the spring migration. She sent us a beautiful picture of a Black-billed Cuckoo.
Here is the link she shared:
Our guest plans to return and be here for the fall migration--will you?
Beautiful photo--thanks, Janet!
AND DON'T FORGET--
WE ARE PET FRIENDLY!
This is Roosevelt (Rosie), our elderly rescued basset hound. He's the Gounds Maintenance Officer here at The Country Bumpkins B&B.
Take a tip from Rosie--
he kicks back and relaxes most of the time!

In 2014 we are increasing our base rate to $105/night (2 persons/party) and a three-night minimum stay is required. Additional people in the party and/or pets are $10 each/night. And, VA lodging tax (10.3%) applies as well.
Don't forget, we are an easy drive to Liberty University and Lynchburg College in Lynchburg, VA. Plan to come visit us for special events--orientations, Parent's Weekend, graduations, and weddings--you'll be conveniently close. . .
but just slightly removed for a little peace and quiet.
From the north--I-81 to exit 188 (Buena Vista, US Hwy. 60 E) to State Hwy. 501 towards Lynchburg. You'll be driving over the mountains. Look for Hwy. 122 S (Big Island) towards Bedford; turn R on Hwy. 122 S. We are about 10-11 miles on the left. When you see Stoney Brook Rd. on left, slow down! We are the first driveway on the left. Our mailbox is a marker on the right--7765.
From the east--From Lynchburg, VA, take Hwy. 460 W towards Roanoke. Go about 25 miles past Lowe's and Walmart on the right. Look for right exit that says Hwy. 122 N (Big Island); stay in right lane and turn right at the light (CVS). You are on Independence Ave. which is 122 N. Stay on this road for approximately 9 miles. We are on the right with a sign at the base of our driveway. You will not be able to see the house from the road.
GPS are great, but cannot be trusted in these parts! We know some short cuts when you get here, but if you don't look at the old fashioned map, you will see more countryside than you probably want to! Particularly not so great, if you are arriving after a hard day's drive or after dark!
Just as soon as you know your plans, call or email us. You can also access our up-to-date Availability Calendar at any time by visiting our property listing on FlipKey.com or TripAdvisor.com.
Look under VACATION RENTALS. (And read our "happy camper" reviews while you're there!)
We now intend to stay open through January 19, 2014! Then we will close and re-open on April 1.
