About Michael Ashworth

Michael Ashworth is retired from the Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries. He worked 30 years in wildlife law enforcement as a Virginia Game Warden. He currently works as a Realtor with Long & Foster Real Estate. Michael grew up in Bassett, Va and graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Biology. He and his wife Patricia have three children and have lived in Bedford, Virginia since 1978. Patricia is a Mary Kay Director.

Why Michael Ashworth chose Bedford

We bought this property because it had many qualities that I knew would make it a great get-away. First is location. There are no other homes in sight. The closest in one direction is over 1/4 mile and in the other direction over one mile. Too many vacation get-aways are jammed up together and offer no privacy or peace. Another attractive is how cozy the cabin is. It's an A-frame and not a sprawling mega-house with no personality.

What makes this cabin unique

This property should be specially attractive to guests because it's directly handled by the owners. We want our guests to have the same quality vacation we expect when we travel. We encourage and welcome our guests to call us at any time while staying here if they have any issues or need any information about the area. Since, cell phone service is limited in the area of the cabin we welcome guests to give family members our home and cell numbers in case family members need to contact them in an emergency and we will gladly go and relay the message.

A simple place to get away!

  • 4 of 5

This quaint little cabin was just what my boyfriend and I needed for the weekend. Situated in the middle of nowhere, we were able to escape the noise of everyday. The small creek that flowed behind the cabin was perfection! The sounds of nature soothed us to sleep each night. Sitting on the back porch to read while the sun set, I mean, come on, it can't get much better than that. The Blue Ridge Parkway was just minutes away, we went hiking one day. Lynchburg was just a short drive with some really great restaurants. But, basically, we came to get away and not do anything but be in nature and relax and this place really did it for us! The place was clean, comfortable and we'd definitely stay again! The only complaint, those winding stairs are scary!

Wonderful & relaxing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I decided that we needed a quick getaway. After doing some research & reading reviews of cabins in our area, we decided to stay at Whitetail Hideaway. The cabin was very clean and cozy. The owners supply everything that you need to cook & clean with & have made it a very nice place to stay for a simple getaway or an extended stay. Michael & Patricia are wonderful to work with & really make you feel welcome. The hot tub was very clean & at the perfect temperature upon our arrival. We spent quite a bit of time in the hot tub as well as sitting on the back deck listening to the soothing sounds of the stream. I would highly recommend this cabin if you are looking for quiet time away from your home. We are already planning our next visit!

Wonderful, quiet, great view!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cozy cabin with a great view, even in the winter/early spring. Well-kept, and a great price for what you get. Was even nicer than expected, and nearby great hiking trails / Natural Bridge as well as historic sites in Lexington, VA. Great hospitality and easy to book. Would recommend to anyone, the view from the deck is beautiful! Make sure you get your business done before you get there -- cell phone service is spotty...but it's kind of nice getting away from the distractions of cell phones and e-mail.

Beautiful escape from the daily grind

  • 5 of 5

The house is gorgeous and clean, the hot tub was clean and warm, and the kitchen was stocked for cooking. I loved my stay here and would definitely recommend it to friends looking to get away from the city. While having no Wifi was initially a bit daunting, it was honestly a huge relief to not feel the pull towards work emails and calls. I loved being off the grid!

Feeling rejuvenated

  • 5 of 5

What a great stay! This cozy cabin is nestled in a beautiful wooded setting with awesome views of the mountains. Enjoy listening to the flowing stream while sitting on the back deck. Kitchen is stocked with all the necessities, just bring the food. Hot tub was well maintained and the perfect temperature upon arrival. The owners are incredibly accommodating and super to deal with. I highly recommend this little retreat for a weekend of complete relaxation at a great price!

like living in a fairytale

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It was like something out of a storybook with its quirky look and seclusion. We were snowed in for a day so we didn't get to explore as much but we would love to come back when it's warmer to hike the trails. The mountains overlookinng the James river were just gorgeous. The owners were very good about communicating and creating a welcoming feeling.
