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!

O espaço

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 Blue Ridge Mountains and the Appalachian 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 still "under construction" as we are just before adding that deck on the lakeside of the house, that will be for your enjoyment, too, once it's finished hopefully this fall. 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 Cheese steak 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 and was last used as a high end restaurant. If you've got the cash it 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 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, the VA Medical Center, as well as Duke University Medical Center, too. 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!!

Acesso dos hóspedes

Our guests are encouraged to use the apartment as if it's their own!! The only thing we DO NOT allow is smoking in the house. Your kids will enjoy exploring our acreage with it's creeks feeding into the lake. When a summer storm passes by dumping a lot of rain you can really hear the water rushing down to the lake. Unfortunately, the lake is a watershed for the town of Yanceyville, therefore there's no swimming!! There is a boat landing just minutes away if fishing is your thing, hey you might even catch dinner!!

Interação com os hóspedes

We will be available to answer any questions that may come up as well as short cuts that are available to the MANY various activities. We can be involved as much or as little as our guests desire us to be. Most importantly, we want you to feel like family and enjoy your visit enough to want to come back as many times as you wish!! Our home, is your home!!!

The biggest thing we are very adamant about is NO SMOKING IN THE APARTMENT!!! Any infraction of this rule will result in immediate eviction with no refund!!!! Smoking is acceptable on the upstairs entry deck as long as the door is closed. We will have a butt receptacle on the upper deck for your use. Please do not toss butts over the deck railing. We will not accept any overnight guests other than the number agreed upon when you reserve our apartment. We are a very quiet couple and we expect the same of you. There will be no parties or loud music. We expect you to treat our home/apartment with the same respect that you would expect of visitors to your home. Acceptance of small dogs will be a case by case decision with us having the last say!! Lastly, I'm sorry, but, we CANNOT have any cats as my husband, Matthew, is severely allergic to them.

Thanks for the great review, Melissa!! We definitely enjoyed hosting you ladies and would love to host you again, anytime!! But, now that you are relocating to the area, that won't be necessary!! If there's anything I can do to help facilitate your move, you have the phone number, I'm a phone call away!! Good luck and I do hope you enjoy your new home here in the "Tar Heel State"!!!

Jan is a gracious, attentive host. She was around to help us make it to the property, despite the fact we arrived around 5AM! The house is clean, and the windows allow for wonderful views of the surrounding woods. Jan's property is a wonderful destination for anyone in need of a break from the hustle and bustle. We can't wait to return!

Thank you for your kind words, Jordan, and for choosing "Our Secluded Little "Peace" of Heaven" as your home away from home. I try to treat all my guests as family. You folks are now at the top of my list for having driven the furthest, as well as arriving the latest!! LOL!!! Seriously, I was getting really concerned when I finally called you at about 4AM!! I knew we had some pretty hard rains and I hoped y'all hadn't got caught in them, too!! I try to keep the apartment as clean as I would want it to be, if I was staying there, as we always use Airbnb when traveling!! We would love to have you folks again anytime you are in the area and need lodging. Again, thanks for staying with us!!

Great place if you want to get away for a bit. I stayed here to watch the races at VIR. The ride to VIR was only about 20 minutes, so it's a pretty good location to stay if hotels are booked. Expect to travel down gravel roads to get to her house. They aren't too bad though, I got through them with a lowered Mini Cooper. The place was bigger than I expected it to be. You get a nice little living room, full bathroom in the hall, a kitchen, then the bedroom. You wake up to the sun rise due to the placement of the windows. It's pretty nice. Definitely recommend!

Thank you, Joseph for the great review!! One of the first things we are definitely going to do when we hit the lottery will be to pave our driveway!! It was REALLY bad until about two years ago when we finally got someone out here that knew how to put a driveway in and it has been so much better!! I even got my minivan stuck in one of the holes and Matthew had to pull me out of it!! So, yeah, it's a whole lot better than it was!! Sometimes after I leave piano lessons I end up going through Milton to get to Danville. It is so close that even I couldn't believe it!! You mentioned all the hotels in the area were booked up. Our heat pump went out about two years ago and my husband felt sorry for me and the dogs because it was so hot and he paid a hundred dollars a night at the Days Inn for me and the dogs to stay because it was so hot then!! Anyway, we would love to have you folks come back and stay with us again for whatever reason!!

The best word to describe Jan's place is PEACEFUL. We went walking each day we were there and the scenery was beautiful! It is a wonderful place for a nice little getaway.

Thank you, DaMeche for the great review!! I appreciate that you folks gathered up all the lines and towels for me as well as vacuuming for me. I do have to say, that little "Duece" is one very active little boy!! I understand how wide open three year olds can be because I've had three of them myself!! Hopefully, the girls are now back in school and are settling in well. Please do come back and see us again!! Oh, I do wish you well with the book you want to write!! Thank you, again, so much for choosing "Our Secluded Little "Peace" of Heaven" as your home away from home!!

Jan is a very friendly hostess. A fruit bowl and simple breakfast foods were provided. We must not have read the description well enough since we did not expect the apartment to be right above their private living quarters. If you are looking for complete solitude this would not be a good choice.

Hello Susan. We want to apologize for whatever noises you heard from the main floor. I know the pups bark at times and we try to keep them as quiet as possible. I will definitely work on trying to keep the noises from the first floor disturbing any guests in the future. I will also make it clear in our description of the apartment that it is over our main living quarters. I have read back through all of the other guests personal feedback and no one made mention of the noise, but I will find some way to stop as much of the noise as possible. I will also edit our description so folks know for sure the apartment is over our main living quarters. Thank you, Susan, for your honest feedback!!

This was perfect for what we needed. Gorgeous views and very relaxing. The communication was quick and clear, we recommend this to anyone looking for an escape.

Thank you for the glowing review, Nick!! First and foremost, I want to thank you for choosing "Our Secluded Little "Peace" of Heaven" as your home away from home!! I do want to apologize for not being able to welcome you both and show you around. Unfortunately, I had surgery the day before y'all arrived, and it was bigger and more painful than even I anticipated!! Fortunately, the pain medicines blocked most of the pain as well as the whole weekend for me. But, Matthew has been involved with check-ins before and I'm sure he did a much better job showing you folks around as I could have done at that time. We are so glad our apartment was just what you needed and I'm also thankful the weather was beautiful for the wedding. Anytime you folks are in the area, looking for "another escape" we'd love to have you both, anytime!!!

Jan was a great host and her place was very clean and organized. Plenty of space, especially since we were traveling with 2 little ones. Great location when visiting Virginia International Raceway.

Thank you, AJ. I try very hard to keep it as clean as I would want it to be!! We truly enjoyed having you two and the little fellows, too!! We understand completely how it is when you have two little ones to deal with!! I can in all honestly say they were no bother to us at all, as Matthew could sleep through the house falling in on us!! LOL!! I think people are surprised how very close we are to the "VIR"!! We sincerely look forward to having you and your sweet little family visit with us again, sooner than later!! Again, thank you for choosing "Our Secluded Little "Peace" of Heaven"!! Warmest regards, Jan and Matthew Beckwith

I am a married grandmother with three grown wonderful children. I am a disabled/retired registered nurse. My husband, (of 33 years), Matthew and I are born again Christians that strive to adhere to the Ten Commandments. Together we built our beautiful dream home on almost nineteen wooded acres overlooking the lake here in Yanceyville, NC. in 2013. In the event you're not familiar with Yanceyville, we are just south of Danville, Va. Matthew and I are very friendly and outgoing and neither of us ever meets stranger. We have two little Dorkies, named Tucker and his sister Tippy, that keeps us on our toes. We both love house plants, and every window sill in our great room is filled with house plants. My first experience with Airbnb was back in 2012 when my daughter and I used Airbnb when we took a vacation to Washington, DC for a week. Our experience was truly amazing with a stay in a penthouse suite in Tacoma Park, just blocks from the Capital Building!! Matthew and I just very recently used Airbnb for lodging in Hendersonille, NC for one of my nephew's wedding and we have lodging arranged for another nephew's wedding in June. So we really know how this system works!! If there is anything I left out, please feel free to email me or call as I am usually home. If no answer at home, just call my cell as it is always with me, unless I've had one of those "senior" moments. In that case just leave a message on one or both and I promise I will get back to you!!! Airbnb asks if I have a "life motto" and indeed I do. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!!" I truly believe that if everyone treated others like they wanted to be treated, the world would be a much nicer place for all of us!!! I have a couple of hobbies I love. I love to cook so don't be surprised to find homemade cookies and or brownies on arrival. I'm an avid crocheter and a beader as well and I love making jewelry with glass beads and other materials. One of these days when I win the lottery, I seriously plan to travel the world from one end to the other and you can bet I will be using Airbnb to make my destination reservations. That's just how happy I've been with them!!! We will gladly let you know of interesting places to see while you're here, if you have the spare time. We can be involved with you as much or as little as you like. So, give us a try, as we don't think you'll be disappointed!!
