House Rules

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.

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.

Response from Jan:
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

We had an amazing time. Jan was very sweet and had fruit for us on the kitchen table when we got there. The morning sunrise over the lake is gorgeous. The space is much larger than I expected. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend!

Awe, what a sweet review, Sam!! First and foremost, I want to thank you both for choosing our "Secluded Little "Peace" of Heaven" as your home away from home!! As for the snacks and breakfast items, it's just one of the little things I like to provide for all of my guests in the apartment!! I know how it is to have to run out first thing in the morning and either pick up breakfast or have to run to the store to shop for the breakfast items!! That's why the apartment will always be stocked with eggs, grits, juice and milk for whoever is checking in in order to make it a little more convenient for my guests in the morning!! If I'm not mistaken, I think I shared with y'all the reason we have a complete full thousand square foot one bedroom apartment listed on Airbnb. I'm so very thankful the heavy rains had finally stopped so you two could see those gorgeous sunrises over the lake!! You folks have been blessed with a beautiful baby boy that is so good as I only heard one him cry one time!! He is truly a very special little boy!! Maybe the next time you folks choose to stay with us, you'll think about allowing us to watch him for you so you two could have a very nice dinner and movie that won't be interrupted!! LOL!!! I do hope and pray y'all had a great safe trip back home!! Thank you both again for choosing our "Secluded Little "Peace" of Heaven" for your home away from home!! We would love to host you folks any time you are down this way again!! Warmest regards, Jan and Matthew Beckwith

Jan User Profile

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!!
