Harding Hideaway is a great alternative to over-priced and not so nice hotels in the VT area! John made the process easy and was very welcoming! Think about Harding Hideaway for fun VT weekends!

We are return visitors to Harding Hideaway and greatly enjoyed our stay. John's place is warm, comfortable, and accessible. He is a great communicator and great host. We had a great time while staying in town for our son's graduation. I highly recommend John and Harding Hideaway.

My group and I stayed in John's home for a VT football game and enjoyed our visit. The house was very clean and the beds were comfy. We stayed while John was away and had no problems with check in or finding anything we needed. The location is convenient- less than $10 for our Uber downtown and not far from the bus stop. Would definitely recommend for people visiting Blacksburg!

John was a wonderful host, he was very accommodating and flexible with all of our requests. The house was set up perfectly for our group, he was knowledgeable and friendly. He made our trip, a homecoming of sorts for all the Tech Alumni with us perfect. We had an amazing time in a such a convenient location!

John was awesome - very communicative and informative and quick about it! My friends and I stayed one night and it was such a great place to stay. The view from his backyard was incredible and his house is quaint and comfortable. Can't wait to stay here again on future trips. Thanks John!!
