Race fans, looking for a great place to stay for races at the "VIR" or Martinsville? Maybe a trip to Old Salem or the furniture market, a holiday craft show or possibly even a great concert! Look no more. Our upstairs apartment has everything you need for a great stay with amazing lake views!! Our apartment has a very large living/dining room and bedroom with huge dormer windows that flood the rooms with natural light. If you're lucky, you might even see some of our resident wildlife!
If privacy is what you are looking for, look no further!! If you want peace and quiet with amazing views, your search is over!! We are a rural listing in the foothills of one of God's magnificent creations, the Appalachaian and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Don't let that alarm you because we are only minutes from some of NC's largest cities and all that they have to offer!! As you drive down to the end of our half mile long driveway and round that last left curve, you'll find the dream home we completed for our retirement years. We have finally gotten some great looking flower beds and a gorgeous rose garden, too. Our home is tucked away at the very back end of almost 19 beautifully wooded acres overlooking Farmer Lake here in Yanceyville, NC. Needless to say, our stunning surroundings are finally completed as we have just added an amazing deck on the lakeside of the house, that will be for your enjoyment too. Although we are rural, we are minutes away from a Food Lion grocery store, and an Amish store that sells bulk food items, deli sandwiches, and hand-dipped ice cream. If you are a fan of a great "Philly Cheesesteak" sandwich like me, I can give you directions to the best I've ever had!! And, yes, we have the usual fast food restaurants close to the Food Lion. Last but not least there's even a public 18 hole golf course, in the event you want to play a couple of rounds of golf. Danville, Va. is just 15 minutes away with any type of shopping you could possibly need. There is a military tank museum that we just recently visited and there's also a history museum that covers the role tobacco played in the growth of this area, as well as a children's science museum. The "Thomas Day Home" in Milton, has a very interesting program explaining how this "free man of color" built very expensive furniture, stairway newels and posts, as well as cabinets that are still in use in the older homes of the wealthy land owners that have been refurbished like the "Bartlett Yancey Home" right here in Yanceyville that today still stands. It was last used as a high end restaurant. If you've got the cash the home is for sale. His furniture was shipped world wide by way of river barges and wagon trails to the larger cities and to the coastal areas to be shipped to Europe and other countries. While you're over in Milton, be sure to give "Aunt Millie's Pizza" a try as it is the best pizza around!!! And just a couple of minutes from there, check out the Virginia International Raceway (known as the "VIR" by the locals), which is mere minutes away from Milton!!! It seems there is some kind of racing event over there almost every weekend, especially over the summer months. Martinsville, Va. is about 30 to 40 minutes away and as most racing fans know, there are NASCAR events being held there twice a racing season. Greensboro with it's major Classic Christmas Craft Shows the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday after Thanksgiving. Big name music concerts and major sporting events are a mere 30 minutes away. Winston Salem with Old Salem is about 45 minutes south west of us. Thomasville and it's bi-annual Furniture Market is just south of Greensboro. Mebane, with it's Tanger Outlets and amazing small town antique stores are 25 minutes south east of us and Durham is another twenty minutes further east with South Pointe Mall, Duke University with it's campus and medical center, as well as the VA Medical Center. At the end of your day, whichever direction you choose to follow, you will come back to the peace and quite of "Our Secluded Little Peace of Heaven" right here on earth!!
The greatest thing we enjoy about our neighborhood is that we are all spread out on 10 plus large tracts of acreage, therefore, we see our neighbors only in passing. It is very quiet here without all the noise and hubbub of the big city!! There will be boats on the lake at times during the day but they are limited to fishing boats. Are you a canoe or a kayak fan? Both are available for rent over at the boat launch not too far from here. Oh, if you're lucky you may even get a glimpse of our resident bald eagle and his mate, as well as deer and wild turkeys that frequent our grassy area below. We've been blessed this summer with a doe and her twins that we've watched grow, as well as a singleton and it's mom. Our newest wildlife animal is a very cute raccoon. Over all, we feel our guests will have the ultimate private, peaceful experience not available in any hotel or motel. There are several restaurants very close by. If you have a taste for great BBQ while you're here, check out Briggs BBQ and Cafe over on 86 south at the junction of Hwy 62 north. They open early for breakfast but unfortunately, they are only open till 2PM, Monday through Saturday. We also have a great family owned seafood restaurant called Hushpuppies right on the square in town. There is also a GREAT family owned Italian restaurant, Lil Pizza My Heart, south of McDonalds on Hwy 86 as well as The Rio Grande Restaurant, if Mexican is what you're looking for!!! If a great steak is what you're craving, Steaks on the Square over in Danville is where you should head out to and it's just twenty minutes from here!! I guarantee you will get an excellent steak instead of the usual steak served by the various chains like Texas Road House or Outback. Also, if you're a great fan of chicken salad as we are, O'Kelly's, over in Danville has the absolute best I have ever eaten, hands down!!! I can almost guarantee you will not be disappointed by any of these suggested places and their prices are very reasonable, too!!
