RESTORED DOUBLE LOG CABIN ON 400 MOUNTAIN ACRES

Charlottesville House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3.25 Baths, (Sleeps 13-17)

Escape the heat of the city and suburbs to the robust mountain setting of the Blue Ridge Mountains near Charlottesville. Enjoy a week or weekend with family and friends in this authentic restored 1880's double log cabin.

Immerse yourself in the ambiance of yesteryear on 400 mountainside forested acres. Hand hewn logs, reclaimed wood floors, restored antique stoves, furniture, and claw-foot tubs, - all contribute to the historic atmosphere, while folding glass walls, spacious rooms, central heating and air conditioning, and modern appliances provide the comfort and ease of modern day life.

The Great room features a wood burning stone fireplace, TV / blue Ray DVD with satellite (no local channels), folding glass doors at both ends so your entertaining can spill out onto the front porch or the back yard. A long front porch is ample for dining and perfect for swinging on the antique porch swing and relaxing in rocking chairs.

The kitchen has modern appliances, and an antique wood cook stove as an option for the adventurous sort. However the stove is best used for ambiance on a chilly morning, while bonding over your morning coffee. The kitchen is arranged as the early kitchens were, with the table in the middle of the room.

An outdoor fire pit provides hours of entertainment for young and not-so-young alike.

This house is made up of two log cabins, one moved up from a lower location on the same mountain, and another moved in from another property, joined together by a great room. There are four bedrooms plus a bunk room, three baths plus another with sink and tub only.

Sleeping arrangements:

Hand made period quilts cover all beds.

Two bedrooms are located on each end each with their own stair, making it perfect for two families to occupy with semi-privacy.

Bedroom 1 - 1 queen & 1 double, bed on the main floor with a wood stove for ambiance

Bedroom 2 - 2 twin beds on the main floor (direct access to bath)

Bedroom 3 - 1 queen & 1 double bed on the second floor with a wood stove for ambiance

Bedroom 4 / loft - 2 double beds on second floor. This is a large room with a private stair. There is no door, but it feels quite private. (This is my favorite room.) and there is an adjoining sink and tub (no toilet)

Bunk area - 3 twins. Kids love this room with its unusual doorway

Bathrooms furnished with restored cast-iron sinks, modern water saving toilets, and claw-foot tub/showers.

Bathrooms 1 & 2 - main floor

Bathrooms 3 & 1/4 - second floor

The joined cabins are both 100+ years old, restored in 2009.

Note that cell phone reception is sometimes sketchy.

We suggest you grocery shop before arrival as the nearest full grocery is 25 minutes away.

Come glimpse the best of life of our early settlers!.

We are Virginia natives with family in the Charlottesville area. We've been making trips to this neck of the woods for 50 years.

Elizabeth Bennett purchased this house in 1953

This property was purchased by our Grandfather in 1953 as a working apple orchard. As a local Charlottesville businessman, he wanted to create a country getaway on the mountain. We've made his dream a reality. Our extended family spends holidays and long weekends here.

When you really want to get away from it all, this is the place. This double, restored log cabin is located on 400 acres of forested mountainside. Wildlife abounds; bear, variety of bird species, raccoons, deer, flocks of turkeys. On a clear night the sky is dense with bright stars (UVA conservatory is located close by because light pollution is so low). Once or twice a day you can hear a train whistle far in the distance, to take you back a century.

Charlottesville is so close by that in 20 minutes you can be at a UVA football game or graduation, or at the historic mall complete with its outdoor pavilion and live performances. It's the same distance in the other direction to Wintergreen Ski Resort. There are many activities within easy distance along scenic local byways; historic locations such as Thomas Jefferson's Monticello in Charlottesville and the Frontier museum in Staunton, cultural experiences such as Blackfriar's Shakespeare Theater, outdoor adventures such as tubing and canoeing on the James River and hiking, apple and strawberry picking, Skyline Drive for fall colors, antique stores, wineries, golf, fine dining, and much more!

Absolutely, Rusticly Wonderful Ladies Weekend!!!

  • 5 of 5
This glowing review is a little overdue, but that's not a reflection on the amazing stay myself and 10 other lady friends had here back in May. We had a lovely time pot-lucking and sitting around the campfire and visiting the local wineries and restaurants. We were all immensely impressed with the amenities provided in this adorably rustic cabin. The owners thought of everything, from firewood, to kitchen tools, to hair dryers and satellite cable (not that we turned the TV on even once!). I would definitely recommend this spot for family vacations and hope to go back again with my own now that I know what a find it is.
I will say to beware the very end of the driveway going up to the house. If you are not confident with the incline and gravel, or unless you have 4-wheel drive, you might want to park just before the steepest part and walk the few yards up to the house. One of our vehicles got stuck ;)
The owner/manager was friendly and communicative and pleasantly prompt with returning the deposit. An all around wonderful stay!

Excellent Rental!

  • 5 of 5
Even better than the photos! Very clean and ready to be used upon our arrival!
We used it as a gathering place for family scattered in all directions and it served us very well. Short drive to Charlottesville, no problem. Up in the mountains. Temps were in the high 90s downtown, but very pleasant at the cabin.

Four good-sized bedrooms (each with 2 big beds) and one adorable small room (with 3 twins and some baby dolls) tucked away to one side. The children LOVED that room! Large kitchen with both antique and modern appliances. Plenty of seating for meals and sitting around. Big porch with swing and rockers, plus a fire pit with Adirondack chairs. Plenty of bathrooms, no waiting! Toys for all ages, too. Books to browse through. Very relaxing.

Wonderful Graduation Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful home, nestled in a relaxed and gorgeous setting, was the perfect family house for our daughter's UVA graduation. We enjoyed all the pomp and circumstance and were able to return to our private retreat with ample room for our large family and every amenity we could need for a relaxed and joyous celebration. Our thanks to the owners for providing the perfect setting for us.

Snow,Snow and more Snow.

  • 5 of 5
Long weekend getaway and ski trip could have not have turned out better.17" of snow fell the night before we arrived.We had to wait a few hours until the road back to the cabin was plowed. The owner had her cousin plow the driveway to the house which made it accessible with 4 wheel drive.( what and adventure ). Once in the cabin we picked our rooms and unloaded everything. The cabin was just great with plenty of room for cooking, games inside and out. The kids graded a slope out front and played with sleds and snow boards. We will be back.

Incredible Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is huge, well-kept, on a beautiful piece of land, and the owner is very responsive to any questions you may have. It rained all weekend while we were there, but it was still a great visit because the cabin was so nice. We had 15 guys on our trip and we all slept comfortably both nights of our stay. The wildfire stove is also really cool if you're feeling brave enough to give it a try. And if not, there are modern appliances as well for cooking meals and plenty of cast iron.
