About the area

Great fishing from the private bridge located on the New River! The cabin is walking distance from the town of Todd and 20 minutes from Boone and West Jefferson. In the town of Todd you have canoe, raft and bicycle rentals. Fly fishing lessons and of course the historic Todd General Store located only a walking distance away. You might like to visit North Carolina's only cheese factory and sample some of their many varieties of cheese, or tour the Church of the Frescoes in West Jefferson and historic Glendale Springs.

“great peaceful getaway”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2015

we enjoyed our stay at Buckys Hideaway. We spent 2 nights there, we were 8 in total. It was comfortable and had everything we needed. Everything was in working order and it didn't get too hot in August so as to urgently need air cond. because there wasn't any, only in the kitchen. The cabin is perched up high from the river and you can see it a little bit through the trees but the private entrance and short walk down to the river is really convenient. We had a good time kayaking, we liked the strip of river there because it's shallow enough so that you don't have to worry too much about anyone falling into deep waters. We really liked this place and highly recommend it, best price.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your great review of Bucky's. We are pleased that you enjoyed your vacation. Come back and stay with us again! Best, Lainey

Bucky's Hideaway exceeded our expectations--perfect private location, simply cozy and clean. Not fancy, just wonderful. A long time rental, they truly get it! Everything our group of 5 adults needed was provided, plus more. We comfortably hosted a dinner for 9 inside, then ended the evening sitting on the deck listening to telling stories to the rhythm of the rushing waters below. Fully equipped kitchen was stocked even with spices, paper products, and food prep items. Every one said it was PERFECT! Our friends rented the other, companion cabin which made the wedding by the river a totally exclusive, private and wonderful time. In our free time, we set our chairs in the river and enjoyed the rushing cool water and the comfortable breezes, not believing it was actually a very hot summer day. Next time, we will bring our kayaks, canoes, and fishing gear, though you can rent these plus bikes and tubes nearby if you don't want to schlepp them. Can't wait to bring my family here. KUDOS to Laney at the rental office. She was kind, helpful, and very informed. What a surprise to walk to the Todd Mercantile to see all the local craft and art, and to meet Laney and Jim in person.

Owner's reply: Thanks for kind review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will come back soon. All the best, Lainey

Stepped out of the car, walked back to the bridge and caught a two pound brown trout before unlocking the door.Very comfortable and spacious with all the comforts of home.Great fishing, quiet setting with great views and lots of privacy. Worked us in on extremely short notice after other plans fell through. Best vacation in years. Plan to return. THANKS !!!!

The cabin was clean and cozy. The wrap around deck gave us awesome views of the river and the mountains behind it. We hiked on trails around the cabin as well. The locals are so friendly. You have to meet Jack and Helen at the bakery!! We never could get the hot tub to heat above 89 and contacted the after hours number and left a message on "wendy's" answering service, but no one called or came out to assist us. Other than the hot tub it was very relaxing, very private (you even have your own private bridge that goes over the river to get to the property). Beds were comfy, bathrooms were in good shape too. I'm sure we'll book another visit here again!

"What a location...away from everything yet an easy walk to tiny "downtown" Todd. Lots to do without getting in the car. Storytelling, music and food at The Mercantile, yummy treats and yoga at the Bakery, excellent selection of bikes, canoes, tubes and fishing gear at River Girl, and special events at the park. The sights and sounds of the New River from the deck of River's Edge are especially relaxing. The cabin had everything we needed and more. Pleasantly surprised to find it nicer than portrayed on the website. The Railroad Grade road was a wonderful and easy bike ride, meandering along the New River for miles. Todd is my favorite location of all the Boone area locations. We'll be back." Ron & Patti, Melbourne Beach, Florida

We had a Blast! This location on the river & close to Boone & the Blue ridge parkway rocks!
Thank you father for the gift of nature and two fine sons to share it with.
