Peace and Quiet

We are about to end a fabulous week here at Alone Mill Schoolhouse. It was a last minute vacation choice and we couldn't be happier. The cabin met all of our family's requirements: quiet, clean, comfortable, adequate cooking facilities, laundry facilities, close to outdoor activities, and best of all, we could bring our dog. The cabin has 2 TVs but we didn't even use them; we were too busy enjoying every minute of this area. We have 2 teenage boys, who can get bored very easily, but they were not bored for a minute. When they weren't kayaking in the river, they were playing Frisbee in the yard or riding bikes, or walking trails. At night we would play pool, read, or played cards.
The Maury River is absolutely beautiful. We tried to get a coupe kayak trips in a day. We usually took the shorter trip but the longer one from Rockbridge Baths was spectacular. We also recommend a nice walk down Whiteside Drive. It is a nice long walk that goes alone a little creek and crosses over it several times. We were greeted by the cutest herd of cows and a few little calves.
As far as the cabin is concerned, there is a lot to love here. It is furnished in some very cute and somewhat eclectic mix of furniture. I especially loved the antique and "shabby chic" pieces and the beautiful quilts. The paint on the walls is also a perfect choice of contemporary colors that are very calming. The linens are nice quality, nothing cheap or uncomfortable to use. The beds were also very comfortable. The bathrooms have high quality updated fixtures.... and we also noticed the wiring in the house is above average, with plenty of lighting and ceiling fans throughout. There are a few herbs growing outside that we used in our cooking.
We will definitely be coming back here unless we buy our own little piece of heaven first.
Families with Teenagers,
