Autumn Brings Hokie Fans, Virginia Tech & Radford University Families, & Crisp Clear Claytor Lake Days!

September 19, 2012

This summer was one of prolific planting & gardening as we were able to develop our landscaping extensively. We welcomed many guests, family reunions, and friends! Now that September is here, Jan is experiencing full retirement from teaching for the first time and we’re both excited to welcome autumn guests!
Claytor Lake

With the return of thousands of students to the local universities, Virginia Tech and Radford University, comes fall sports seasons,

most notably Hokie football. We are only 20 minutes from Radford and just a short 40 minute drive from Blacksburg. We still have availability many fall weekends!

Please call or e-mail for availability and reservations! We look forward to hosting you this fall on beautiful Claytor Lake!

Fall Colors! Welcome autumn lovers!

October 5, 2011

Blue skies, brilliant fall reds, yellows, and oranges, and sparkling emerald water. That’s what we see out the window every morning. Hokie football season is in full swing and we’re enjoying welcoming both Hokie fans AND opponent fans! The cove is ever so peaceful. Take out our canoe, two-seater, kayak, one-seater kayaks, paddle boat, or bring your own! It’s still warm enough for a polar bear dip in the lake, too.

This is the PERFECT time of year to ride the New River Bike Trail. The fall colors this year are going to be magnificent.

Call or e-mail today to reserve your rural retreat at Contentment on the Cove B&B!!

We now have WIFI internet available!

Winter Wonderland

January 20, 2011

Winter Solitude

Contentment on the cove has gotten many inches of snowfall this winter! It’s been so cozy to sit by the fireplace and watch the snow fall all around and on the lake. The lake has frozen over and we’ve been able to ice skate. We’re also happy to announce that we have two pairs of snowshoes and the snowshoeing conditions have been fabulous!

Renovation Near Completion! Opening Soon!

September 29, 2010

Contentment on the Cove will officially open for business on November 1, 2010. The construction crew has worked tirelessly throughout the summer to complete the renovation project. We are happy to announce the names of the guestrooms will be “The Green Heron Room”, named for a beautiful bird that lives by the water, and “The Osprey Nest”, another native bird that lives on the cove. We have a lot of fun activities going on in the area throughout the fall and the cove is very quiet and peaceful through the fall and winter. In winter, the lake freezes over and ice skating is a fun activity to do! Plus, there are two great ski resorts not far away! See “Area Attractions” for links. To make a reservation, please call or e-mail! We look forward to this next step in our lives and being able to open our home to serve guests as they enjoy this beautiful place and all the area has to offer! Stay tuned for more information about our grand opening, Thanksgiving celebration, and housewarming party!
