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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
This cabin was awesome ! My boyfriend and I decided we needed to get away on a Friday night and we were here the next day! The owners were VERY accommodating.....especially it being so last moment! It was very very clean and had everything needed to cook...all we had to bring was the food :) I think the best part would have to be the hottub. It was clean and we'll maintained. Over all the only negative thing to be say is that we werent able to stay longer! Will definitely be back! Very very reasonable rate for all the amenities!
We stayed here in order to be close to Lexington and some Civil War anniversary events. Because of its seclusion in the woods, it took us longer to get anywhere from here then we expected, but still doable. The A frame house was great, although the spiral stairs are probably a bit too dangerous for kids. They needs traction pads on the otherwise slick metal steps. Also, a walkway cut through the brush to the stream in the back might be a cool addition. Otherwise, very nice place and the owner was super. I mean, how many people just say, "leave a check on the table when you leave..."?
