Little Riveria Lodge
Welcome to the Little Riveria Lodge, a three bedroom, two bath, fully furnished and equipped lodge located in the beautiful New River Valley of Southwestern Virginia. The New River Valley is nestled within the southern Appalachian Mountains and the home to two major universities; Radford University, Radford Virginia and Virginia Tech, Blacksburg Virginia. The area is surrounded by natural beauty and offers numerous outdoor, family-oriented activities.
The original riverside structure was built in circa 1853 as a store with a residence upstairs. Over the years, the building has served as a store, as storage, as a local high school, and as a movie theater before eventually being converted for use as a residence. The Lodge was built in what was the heart of 19th century Snowville's industrial center. Still visible on the property is the remains of the mill race that provided the power for a huge mill and foundry which were located in the side and back yard. The foundation of the mill and the slag dump from the foundry are still visible. The Lodge was listed in the Virginia List of Landmarks on December 17, 1985 and in the National Register of Historic Places on January 7, 1987 as part of the Snowville Historic District.
The back yard is bordered by 350 feet of frontage on the Little River, a clean, scenic river that drains 400 square miles of the northwestern slopes of the Blue Ridge Mountains before joining the New River near Claytor Lake.
