Frequently Asked Questions

Can you see Craig Creek from the house?
No, like every river, the creek occasionally floods, and the builders of the original log house were smart enough to locate the house on higher ground and far enough from the water so that flooding damage has never been a problem. The closest creek access is about 100 yards from the house at the base of the driveway. The house has mountain and ridge views, and a picturesque branch (small mountain stream) flows right by the house and through an old stone tunnel under the rail bed, into Craig Creek.

How far is the nearest grocery store/restaurant?
The town of New Castle, about a 20 min drive, has a very good IGA grocery store and a couple of diner-type restaurants (not fancy). The closest upscale restaurants are in Roanoke and Salem, about 45-50 min drive.

What should we bring?
Most people say that they have brought too much. The house is well-equipped with appliances and utensils like toaster, toaster oven, blender, coffee makers, microwave, etc. There are a couple of charcoal grills. All linens and towels are also provided, and there is a stackable washer/dryer in the main bathroom. You will need a pair of old shoes to wear in the creek, as the bottom is very rocky in most places. There is also a library with many books to read of all types, from novels to history to poetry.

What are the rules regarding cleaning, trash, etc.?
We provide clean sheets and towels. The washer and dryer are available if you need to wash anything. There are two trash cans outside in the back yard. Please bag and place your trash in those when you leave. Please remove the sheets from your bed before you leave and put them in the downstairs bathroom, along with used towels. Please wash all dishes and put them back where they were stored. We charge a one-time $25 cleaning fee. This doesn’t fully cover our cleaning charges but helps to defray costs and helps us keep our nightly charge as low as possible.

What are the rules regarding pets?
We consider Olde Surber Station to be pet-friendly as long as the pets are well-behaved and are supervised at all times. Please do not allow your pet to run loose in the yard without supervision. If possible, we prefer that you crate your pet if you leave him/her behind in the house while you go on an outing. Other than that, please just use your best judgment and treat the place as you would your own home. If your pet sheds, please clean up after them. At this point, we’re not requiring a damage deposit, but if your pet does happen to damage the property in any way, we would obviously expect you to compensate us for any repairs needed.
