Spring blooms and warmer weather are already here!

Dear Friends,

Winter will soon be a distant memory as the days grow longer and warmer at Blackberry Spring!

The cabin awaits you for the rest of winter and for spring, summer and fall, with the exception of some weekends already reserved (sorry – we’ve been booked for FloydFest for months!).   Remember, we’re only 30 minutes from downtown Floyd, and the ride there is a treat in itself. Give us a call at 276-930-1473 or email info@potter.net. to ask about our spring and summer specials!

Your cabin keepers,

Doug & Theresa Potter

Dear Friends,

BRRR!!  Its’ winter at Blackberry Spring!   It’s the perfect time for a weekend retreat to the country and the opportunity to snuggle up by the fireside in our cozy cabin and catch up on the books and movies you’ve been setting aside.   When you feel the need to get out, shops and restaurants are open in Floyd, just 30 minutes away, and don’t forget a fantastic lunch or dinner at Chateau Morrissette Winery. And its a beautiful time to hike around the property here and enjoy the winter solitude and the splashes of color provided by the cardinals and bluejays!

Dear Friends,

 Brrr!!! It’s cold  but beautiful here at Blackberry Spring – while winter’s not everyone’s cup of tea, if you are looking for a snug weekend retreat and a chance to relax in front of a roaring fire and catch up on your favorite books and movies, it’s that time of year!  Lots of activities still abound – check out the antique stores and bluegrass music up in Floyd, enjoy a lunch or dinner at beautiful Chateau Morrisette winery, or just hike around the beautiful Blackberry Spring property and enjoy the solitude of the winterscape.

The cabinkeepers,

Doug & Theresa Potter

Summer has arrived at Blackberry Spring!  Yesterday afternoon we picked and ate a few handfuls of  the luscious dewberries that grow wild up by the road.  They look like a blackberry but grow on the ground and we were lucky to get them before the deer did!   There seem to be flea markets on most every corner on these sunny weekend days and there are loads  of activities to enjoy in the surrounding towns and counties.  And did you know we’re only 25 minutes away from some of the best barbecued ribs you can imagine?  You’ll find them at the “Pigs -R-Us” restaurant on Liberty Street in Martinsville – the chef/owner and his team, competing under the name  “Checkered Pig,”  have won top national awards for their “come back for more” recipes.  They’ve been featured several times on the TV Food Network – you’ll absolutely love the food!

We’re booked now through the first few days of August, and there are plenty more days and weeks to enjoy  your own Blackberry Spring summer – Give us a call or reserve online!
