Welcome to Merrymont

Patty Griffin, Owner
Fancy Gap, VA 24328

EST. 1984

It's almost spring in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. This is a typical scene along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Actually it's part of the split rail fence museum a few miles down the road.

We are located about 2 miles off the Parkway on almost 6 acres. We have a 3/4 acre pond stocked with bass and catfish. (If you look closely you can see one of the catfish.) The dogs enjoy running up and down the mountain and swimming in the pond.

Fancy Gap is in a time warp making life like it was 50 years ago. The area is dominantly farm land used for cattle and growing cabbages. The fall everything changes with the color of the leaves. We get lots of tourists then. In the spring the Rhododendrons are in full bloom. The real Mabry Mill is just down the Parkway. The two big events of the year are the Fiddlers Convention and the largest flea market in the world. Image 500,000 people in a town with a population of 3,800.


On the following pages you will meet our dogs. Each of which is very special to us. Our kennel is small so we can give individual attention to each one. The dogs live in the house, sleep in my bed and are considered family members. 

We hope you find your visit fun and educational.

Please come back soon and visit us
