Imagine walking through a natural space that inspired you so much that composing a Pulitzer Prize winning novel was the result. The human condition interpretation, 'Pilgrim at Tinker Creek' by Annie Dillard, was composed as she lived and walked along this ancient waterway right in our own backyard. It has “that sense of place" most everyone desires… and it happens to be our backyard in the middle of a 60 year-old neighborhood!! Former residents and artists Bill and Sarah Kolher poured their heart and soul into this Shangri-la for 20 years before us as they traveled the world and brought that experience here for others to enjoy. As stewards of this land and water for the last 18 years, we are pleased to now offer the Kolher's former art studio as our ground-floor Guest Suite to Airbnb clients who want to experience this life-style first hand. The Creek of Tinker Mountain flows through and around this Pre-Cambrian monolith and has been the “sound of life" for us as the waterfall's song is ever-present in the background ambient of this suburban paradise. An excerpt from Annie Dillard's famous novel follows: “I live by a creek, Tinker Creek, in a Valley in Virginia's Blue Ridge. An anchorite's hermitage is called an anchor-hold; some anchor-holds were simple sheds clamped to the side of a church like a barnacle to a rock. I think of this house clamped to the side of Tinker Creek as an anchor-hold. It holds me at anchor to the rock bottom of the creek itself and it keeps me steady in the current, as a sea anchor does, facing the stream of light pouring down. It's a good place to live; there's a lot to think about. The creeks—Tinker and Carvin's—are an active mystery, fresh every minute. Theirs is the mystery of the continuous creation of all that providence implies: the uncertainty of vision, the horror of the fixed, the dissolution of the present, the intricacy of beauty, the pressure of fecundity, the elusiveness of the free, and the flawed of the present. The mountains—Tinker and Brushy, McAfee's Knob and Dead Man—are a passive mystery, the oldest of all. There is the one simple mystery of the creation from nothing, of matter itself, anything at all, the given. Mountains are giant, restful, absorbent. You can heave your spirit into the mountain and the mountain will keep it, folded, and not throw it back like some creeks will. The creeks are the world with all their stimulus and beauty; I live there. But the Mountains are HOME!"--
Please come share this private paradise with us for several days or a few weeks! See you soon!

Our valued guest would also have access to the immediate back yard just outside the secure private entrance. Enjoy our lower deck w patio furniture and the separate creek yard accessed by several creek-stone pathways that mimic the waterfall. The Creek yard gazebo affords inspiration/ meditation/one-nation experiences with long views of Tinker Creek and Mountain! This is the same property that inspired Annie Dillard's famous Pulitzer Prize novel "Pilgrim at Tinker Creek". Waterfowl are present most days and the waterfall sound is very enjoyable and can be heard from the suite w windows open on nice days and nights. (Note: the creek is not visible from inside suite but creek view is just a 15 ft walk across the back yard. The Cliffs of Tinker ARE visible from inside suite.) The knotty pine paneled Bedroom easily doubles as an office space. There is nearly 10' of open Formica counter space w office chair, under-counter alcoves, separate counter lighting, multiple power outlets and free Wi-Fi access. There is also a large dressing mirror and a lighted vanity mirror in the bedroom for the ladies convenience.

Staying with Andy and Judy is truly a wonderful experience. We loved the setting on Tinker Creek and the privacy of having our own space. They have an incredible amount of information on the area and the local attractions that will keep you busy, and help you fall in love with the Roanoke Valley. we can't wait to visit the area again, and we'll definitely be staying with Andy & Judy at Tinker Creek!!!

On my visit to western Virginia this summer, I was spoiled rotten everywhere I went. Andy, Judy and staying at their house off Tinker Creek most certainly contributed to the pleasant experience that I've had the privilege to enjoy! Frankly, I am hard pressed to come up with better descriptions than what Andy & Judy provided (including potential caveats - which generally did not bother me in the least) and what other guests have wrote recently about them and their property. They are spot on, to say the least. I think the best I can add is that Andy & Judy certainly worked hard to earn the high ratings and that the AirBnB community is very lucky to be able to enjoy their hospitality! I greatly appreciated the travel tips and advisories that Andy has shared with me prior to arrival and during my stay! I will admit that I was amused sometimes when the two different generations of Roanoke-area natives I was travelling with during my stay had the same things to say after I heard from Andy first. If Andy & Judy will continue to offer their home and they aren't booked solid, I look forward to staying again on my next visit!

Andy and Judy are the most delightful, kind, and thoughtful hosts one could hope for. We would definitely stay with them again. We were met as soon as we drove up, and Andy insisted on carrying my suitcase to the rooms. They rent what is really an apartment, two whole rooms on the ground floor of the house, overlooking their exquisite garden, which leads down to Tinker Creek. You can leave the window open and listen to the creek's mellow music all night long. Andy and Judy provide a fridge, microwave, and dishes, as well as coffee and tea; also a tv, lots of books (including Annie Dillard's book about living on Tinker Creek), and a lovely chess set. The bathroom is small but certainly serviceable. The garden is tranquil and magical, and the house is located in a pleasant family neighborhood. It's a 20-minute walk from Hollins University (you have to cross route 11, but there's a pedestrian signal). We walked back and forth & loved it, but I should say it's not for everybody -- no sidewalk, so you have to watch out for traffic, and there's a somewhat steep grade up part of it. Downtown Roanoke very close by, as well as many hiking, biking, and other outdoor opportunities. Overall, a rare find.

We had been traveling for several days and the day we arrived at Tinker Creek was a long day. Andy was very welcoming and kept us posted on getting to the house. The GPS was also accurate. We immediately relaxed in this comfortable space and really enjoyed Tinker Creek in the back yard. Andy and Judy have created a very comfortable, welcoming space for a traveler or someone who would like to spend some time in quiet. In addition, this house is close to grocery and restaurants, so one has the best of all worlds. We appreciated having our own entrance and the privacy of the apartment. The bedroom and living area are good sized spaces, and the two of us were able to spread out. Everything was clean and in good condition. There is a microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker, as well as dishes, utensils, paper products and coffee. We were very pleased with our choice to stay with Andy and Judy on Tinker Creek.

Guests want for nothing here. Andy and Judy have thought of everything-from motion detector lights that help you find your way to your door at night and a tiny flashlight on the room key to a first aid kit and lots of suggestions about things to do and see in Roanoke. The suite is exactly as described and the views of the creek are even better than they appear in photos. We spent hours each day relaxing next to Tinker Creek. The neighborhood is safe and convenient; you can drive downtown in about 10 minutes. We visited 3 breweries, hiked at Carvins and biked the Greenway. Most of the restaurants we tried were Andy's suggestions and we enjoyed them all, especially Angelle's for breakfast and Thai Valley Oudone. Staying here made our trip to Roanoke much more enjoyable and interesting. Having Andy as a host is like having a personal guide to the city.

Ответ от Andy & Judy:
Thanks for the glowing review Vickie.... You and your husband Ron made my wife's 60th birthday even more special. All we try to do is think of others first and how we would enjoy "wanting for nothing" when we travel. Thanks for all the craft beer and coming to the City of Salem skybox for the Salem Sox's ballgame. We enjoyed interacting w you as if family were here.... that's why we love Airbnb guests and continue to make the effort to please anyone who would grace us with their presence here and spend their valuable free time along the Creek of Tinker w love so much. You are welcome back here anytime we are not booked! Thanks again and Cheers!

Andy and Judy are lovely hosts and they have a little slice of paradise at Tinker Creek. I had a very relaxing stay and enjoyed having my own space, as well as sharing their company on occasion. They went out of their way to make me feel welcome. I would recommend it to anyone.
