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, Dublin, Hiwassee, Snowville, and Wytheville. Our properties can accommodate from 2 to 12 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 browsing through local art, shopping for that special gift, having breakfast or lunch, or picking up a few grocery items. Within the Draper Mercantile is a unique restaurant offering fresh, made-from-scratch meals, breads, and desserts. For guests wanting to explore the New River Trail, the Draper Mercantile also offers bike rentals. Don't forget to stop by the Tea Garden or the Curious Quill before leaving. The Tea Garden offers a variety of teas and gifts, and there's usually a lunch special according to the season. If you're looking for that special gift or perfect memento, the Curious Quill is located adjacent to the Tea Garden and can help with one-of-a-kind purchase!
