About George Gehl

We built this beautiful home as our second home to escape Florida during the summer. However, due to economic conditions, we decided to rent it rather than permit it to remain empty.

George Gehl purchased this house in 2005

Why George Gehl chose Meadows of Dan

It is probably the largest upscale property in the rental market in the area making it perfect for families and friends gathering for vacations.reunions. birthdays, graduations etc.

What makes this house unique

Unlimited Long Distance Phone Service. All countertops are granite including the baths, all floors are oak or tile in the bathrooms, all the confeniences of home and the warmth and ambiance of a log home.

The deck is huge with the convenience of a 6 person hot tub and a gas grill.

Wonderful place- wonderful people!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have stayed in this lovely cabin twice now- once with just our family (4 people) – we loved it so much and had such a great time that we brought back our extended family (10 people)!!

The cabin is top of the line all the way- great furnishings, everything you could need in the kitchen to cook with (and then some), great bedding, awesome deck, flat screen TVs, nothing has been spared here!

We have stayed at lots of cabins and this is by far the nicest one we have ever stayed in! Although it is top of the line, it is also very comfortable and feels “like home”- a very easy place to relax!!

I would also note that we have two small children (ages 1 & 5) and the cabin is very child friendly as they mention on the web site- the built-in beds upstairs were by far the favorite!!

I obviously love this cabin and would recommend it to anyone- the owners are very nice and accommodating and the care takers are also very helpful! Just a nice cabin, built in a nice place by nice people!! I am already planning my trip back next year!!

Owner's Response: We are always glad to have you stay at our home. And, it seems each time you visit we have added things. The next step will be surfacing the steep drive.

Thank you as always.

Fantastic - Great Family Rental - Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5
Our family of siblings and spouses stayed at the beautiful log cabin and could not have found a more perfect spot. The scenery was awesome and loved listening to the babbling stream - so relaxing. The stars were absolutely beautiful at night and enjoyed sitting in the hot tub gazing at them. The home is so welcoming and the kitchen has everything anyone would need. With everything the home has to offer who could ask for anything more? It was difficult to leave the peace and tranquility to return to the same ol' grind. We would like to thank the owners for the opportunity to stay at your amazing home - the memories will stay with all of us forever.

Off the Beaten Path ... Thank Goodness

  • 5 of 5
George and Linda,
We wanted to thank you for enabling the experience we had at your wonderful mountain home. The house was spotless and well equipped with supplies; and as you said, we just needed to bring food and personal toiletries. We were able to hear the waterfall from the deck and spent many hours simply soaking up the air and the incredible quiet. Our visit was a week or two before peak leaf color, but we were able to enjoy some amazing sunrises as the valley slowly woke up every morning. We also enjoyed a visit from Bob Chamberlain who stopped by mid-week to see if we needed anything or had any issues – that was a nice personal touch. We are almost embarrassed to admit we have lived in Virginia for 20 years and have never visited the area or Chateau Morrisette – we can’t say that anymore as we have now done both. We also wanted to comment about the driveway and the lights – the driveway was interesting, but not really an issue and we absolutely enjoyed the lack of light pollution – we stopped counting the stars after we got to a billion.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I laughed at the term "interesting" referring to the driveway. We just spent a fortune reducing the grade of the last portion by 50% so the last portion would not be steep and we accomplished that. However, this left us with a 180 degree turn that I am not fond of. When I was there last time I met with Bob and we discussed what needs to eliminate the turn. Because the home sits on solid granite we always need dynamite to make a change.

As for the lighting, we agree. We discussed placing solar light posts along the driveway because it is so dark at night, but that would eliminate the total darkness and we too liked sitting on the deck or in the hot tub and looking at the stars and all of the fireflies I had not seen since childhood.

Finally, if you visit again, I recommend dining at the Olde Mill Country Club. It is half the distance as Chateau Morrisette and dining on the deck provides a fantastic view.

If you want to unplug, this is the spot

  • 4 of 5
The home is lovely.we gathered for a graduation celebration at VT, so the trip back and forth got to be a little much for some of our guests. It is a lovely home, well stocked, roomy, and well maintained. We agree with previous assessments that the driveway is not to be attempted at night or for novice drivers, but if you take your time... All is good. We would certainly return when we choose solitude.

Owner's Response: We just reworked the driveway to reduce the grade, but doing so left us with a right angle turn. We had talked about a light, but that would obscure the stars and the privacy at night. Will consider a right had turn sign or a stop sign. And I agree that taking your time at night is essential on not just on the gravel roads and driveways, but also the paved roads. Those who do not will have venison for dinner.

Glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return in the future.

Thank you for your review.

Christmas 2013

  • 5 of 5
My family just spent an unbelievable Christmas holiday at this house. The house is simply wonderful. We had 4 adults and two children . Ample room to be together and also be apart!! The decor is perfect and the kitchen first class. As someone who loves to cook,I was in heaven. Hiking was awesome. Roads and trails led to some great vistas.The creek in front sang to us nightly. The caretaker checked on us a couple of times and that was a true bonus, being so far from town. I cannot convey just how wonderful this home is, the scenery, the area and most assuredly the house itself. We are already talking about a re-book in the spring. Linda and George thanks to you for sharing your lovely home.

Owner's Response: Thank you Debbie and Ken for your kind review and Happy New Year! Linda and I are pleased you enjoyed your Christmas there. We have personally blocked a week for our family for Thanksgiving this year otherwise the holidays are always rented and we can never stay at our own home. If you thought it was beautiful in the winter you should see the dogwoods in spring or the leaves in the fall. It is just nice to spend time with family in the middle of nowhere.

Peaceful bliss awaits!

  • 5 of 5
Our family was blessed to find this cabin Spring Break 2013! My husband and I,along with our three boys drove down from Northern Virginia to meet both sets of grandparents from Florida for a wonderful,relaxing week spent making memories!
The cabin is so spacious and was very clean.Its a little back off the main road but such a scenic drive back! Beautiful mountain scenery,small farms,gorgeous country church made with rocks and not to be missed - the creek down from the cabin!
The driveway is quite steep but manageable.One grandparent did have my husband drive her car up and down the driveway for her.The hottub was being replaced during our visit but this was not an inconvenience as we had no plans to use it. Everything was well stocked in the home.
Our biggest thrill was the last day,it snowed! As this isnt new to us living in Va,our excitement came from the fact one grandmother had never seen a big snowfall and was so happy!
This is a home we would love to spend time in again!

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you enjoyed our home. The road is not actually very steep. It is the short180 degree turn and the height above the stream that makes it seem so. It was steep, but we spent $8,000 reworking it at the beginning of the year to reduce the grade. We have a front wheel drive Honda accord and zip right up. It was also paved before, but this made it slick when it rained and then froze.

We live in Florida and can understand the one grandparent being afraid of the height of the road. Once spring comes we will reconsider further improvements. One might be to simply plant large trees so gusts can't see the stream below at the point of the turn and feel more secure with the trees between them and the stream.

And yes, we replaced the existing hot tub with a much larger Jacuzzi hot tube to accommodate more guests. The one removed only sat 4-6.

Thank you for your feedback.
