Antiques are set against old woodwork from a previous cabin on the site. The large gas log fireplace is a central feature of the great room.

Enjoy your barbecue on the large back porch, or watch a beautiful sunset from the swing on the front porch.

Virginia Log Cabin is excellent for one or two couples, or a family, to enjoy while visiting this unique area of Virginia. Call me! any time! Thanks, Tom Bradshaw 540 463 2521

Log cabin in the country: My cabin was built for use as a vacation rental and has only been used that way. I have enjoyed the vacation rental business and the people who come to relax in the country. Many enjoyable times have been spent visiting with guests at the cabin. The caboose has been added to accommodate larger groups as well as to provide for individual rentals. There may be guests in the caboose during your visit. This usually does not present a problem as the caboose is on the property but separated from the cabin area by plantings Some guests rent both accomodations for larger groups.

About Thomas Bradshaw

I have lived near here in a 200 year old house since 1976. I bought the land for the cabin in 1982 and finally built the cabin in the spring of 1991. It has always been a vacation rental. My wife Faye and I have enjoyed meeting many of our guests over the 20 years and continue to do so. We have another vacation house in Lexington and have recently completed restoring the 1926 caboose.

Thomas Bradshaw purchased this cabin in 1991

Why Thomas Bradshaw chose Natural Bridge

We had spent enjoyable trips to Williamsburg and stayed in a vacation rental house in the restored area and thought that the idea of a vacation rental house in the country might be something that others would enjoy. It was not until the internet got into general usage is 1998 that the idea really became viable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

everything was great, we didn't want for anything,it even came with a very friendly dog, the home was beautiful and the landscaping was gorgeous. we had our morning coffee on the back porch while we watched the birds and squirrels. my mother went through the death of 2 sisters and my father in 4 months, needless to say she needed to get away, she said it was the most peaceful place she had ever been too. she also referred it to all my brothers and their famililes.

A Little Piece of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Tom's Cabin was wonderful. The cabin was adorable & had everything that we needed. Roomy enough that we all had our space. We so enjoyed the huge beautiful grassed yard area where we grilled out and enjoyed yard games (provided) and made s-mores on the fire pit (wood also provided on site) Great for family time! The train caboose on site is adorable. Kids will adore this! My little granddaughter loved it! Early morning breakfast on the back deck was so enjoyable sitting around in the cool of the day and watching the birds eating on the porch side table. The landscape and flowers are gorgeous and just add to the peaceful serenity of the mts. Day trips included a visit to the ride though Animal Safari which was fabulous! A must see! Also, the Natural Bridge was an awesome attraction! Both very close by so we didn't have to drive far. The indoor hot tub in the master bedroom was perfect to finish off the day. Just a great place to get away from the business of life and enjoy some relaxing quality time with family. Tom checked in with us and made sure we had everything that we needed. Enjoyed talking with him as he was so friendly and shared some info. about the area with us. All in all, I would highly recommend this cabin if you are looking for a great get a way to make wonderful family memories. Thanks Tom & Faye for sharing your cabin and a small piece of heaven with us. :)

Absolutely lovely, comfortable, peaceful cabin!

  • 5 of 5
Believe me....You will not want to leave! All the comforts are here. Very clean and well maintained! The location is perfect...so close to unbelievable hiking and there are horses to talk to while your drinking morning coffee in your PJ'S . It is a very easy drive to Roanoke, we went to Black Dog Salvage too! Why would anyone stay in a hotel when you could stay here! My dog was welcomed even at Black Dog Salvage and most outdoor restaurants. She was with us at all times and loved the hiking trails on the Blue Ridge parkway! Pit fire, volleyball net, all available. You will not want to leave!! We ignored the negative reviews, because there are always some people who will always try to find something to complain about.......you can be assured this is the place to stay. I would not hesitate to return....the 4of us stayed for the same cost as a hotel. We had great conversation and a yummy carry out dinner from Nico's in Lexington and a glass of wine...perfect! The light show from some kind of lighting bug in the trees was spectacular!! We had never seen that before. Each night we waited till it is really dark and it is quite a show of nature! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
We were very happy with the cabin and all of the amenities. The cabin was clean and well maintained, we immediately felt welcome and at home. Even though our visit was to attend the funeral of a loved one, Tom was a gracious and thoughtful host who offered his condolences on our loss. We anxiously look forward to returning during happier times.

Cozy, beautiful cabin.

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful four days at the Bradshaw Cabin while attending Parents Weekend at the Virginia Military Institute. The cabin is very spacious, well maintained and clean. In addition to that there are collectibles throughout the cabin which add interest and enjoyment in discovering the objects. The outdoor plantings, the front porch and back patio lend itself to entertaining or just relaxing and the gas fireplace adds a special touch to the abience of the cabin. If you choose to relax there is a varied selection of books and magazines to read. The cabin is fifteen minutes from the town of Lexington and well worth the drive. Mr. and Mrs. Bradshaw have succeeded in making the cabin feel like home away from home.

Owner's Response: My log cabin in the country near Natural Bridge is ideally located, only 2 miles from the interstate exit and 2 miles from the Natural Bridge attractions. The Pink Cadillac Diner is nearby and is fun to visit, as is the Virginia Safari park. Lexington is but fifteen minutes away and is a popular tourist destination. The Blue Ridge Parkway is a few miles on top of the mountains. The Caboose is on the property for other additional guests. I look forward to meeting you when you come to visit! Tom Bradshaw

Lovely cabin, peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this beautiful cabin for a quick weekend retreat. It is very well appointed and maintained, perfectly spotless and decorated with lovely rustic features. We enjoyed snapping photos of birds during breakfast, barbecuing on the porch while watching fireflies and also made a trip to Jefferson National Forest for some great hiking!

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay, we cannot wait to return!

Owner's Response: My wife cleans the cabin and is very concerned about cleanliness. There are many trails in our area. Some of the best are in the Washington Jefferson National Park near the cabin. I try to keep sunflower seed in the can on the porch for the bird feeding station (the table in the yard).

A Good Stay

  • 3 of 5
I've rented dozens of cabins throughout the region. This one was a solid three star. Cozy inside. Well kept outside. Gas fireplace rather than wood burning, which loses a little charm but is easier. There is pasture and forest on two sides. Unfortunately, the front of the cabin faces I-81 and you can hear the traffic. That was a let-down. My only complaints are 1) the dishes were all dusty and 2) the price was high for what we got. When paying this rate, I generally expect a historic cabin in great shape or one with an amazing view. This one is nice, but newer, and it faces the highway.

Owner's Response: We appreciate and value valid comments from our guests. Unfortunately these comments are without merit and must be addressed. These guests overstayed their visit by at least three hours after the agreed check out time without asking. They left all the dishes dirty and not even rinsed. They didn't even bother to take out their garbage. We found the upstairs window munts on the roof. Windows left open-guess this explains the noise complaint. The interstate is a quarter mile away and at times can be heard during the winter when leaves are off the trees but is not intrusive. Many guests have commented on how convenient the cabin is to the interchange. The gas logs were installed because we found a chair burned from fireplace sparks as well as a rug burned. We were lucky-people today do not know how to manage wood fires. As to the matter of the historic cabin-in my description is say that I built this cabin as a vacation rental and I have furnished it with antiques and collectables. There are family heirloom dishes stored in a cabinet above the refrigerator not easily accessible which were gotten out and I suppose were dusty. The regularly used dishes intended for guest usage are used weekly and not "dusty". Lastly, I have not increased my prices in several years and know for the quality level of this rental, my rates are fair.
