"At New River Retreat, being in the tourism industry gives us the opportunities to this area through the eyes of others. Speaking with visitors from others states and even other countries allows us to have unique perspective on the place where we live. So many people who visit Pulaski County are in awe of the river and lake. They travel hundreds of miles to take in astonishing vistas of the Blue Ridge Mountains. People from the Cities can't believe how bright the stars are here at night, they experience for the first time the serenity of absolute silence."
