About New River Retreat
New River Retreat is a property management company offering vacation getaways on the New River, Claytor Lake, New River Trail, and the Blue Ridge Mountains. We have an array of unique cabins and cottages, each with its own personality and charm designed to appeal to a variety of interests.
Starting in 2002 with one property along the river, New River Retreat now manages over 30 properties in the New River Valley including Allisonia, Barren Springs, Draper, Dublin, Grahams Forge, Hiwassee, Max Meadows, Snowville, and Wytheville. Our properties can accommodate from 2 to 14 guests and are ideal for romantic getaways, family gatherings, fishing trips, or a girls' weekend.
The New River Retreat family continues to grow and now offers guests a multitude of services and opportunities to maximize their experience. The Draper Mercantile (where our office is located) is the perfect venue for having a glass of wine, listening to live music, browsing through local art, or picking up groceries from local produce to international gourmet. Within the Draper Mercantile is the Blue Door Cafe, a unique restaurant offering fresh, made-from-scratch meals, breads, and desserts. For guests with a sense of adventure, The Junction, located on the New River Trail, offers bike rentals, outdoor gear, and an assortment of t-shirts, caps, and gifts as a memento of your trip.
