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!

Snow,Snow and more Snow.

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!

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.

Totally Awesome!

I surprised my husband with this weekend for his 40th Birthday and we had an amazing time. It is definitely out there and every bit a cabin as the photos show. We hung by the fireplace every night. We weren't that far from winetasting, golf, Monticello or any of the other great places in that area. The little room with the twin beds is so CUTE! My son thought that someone built that room just for him and asked to go to bed! We will be back. Great time and awesome atmosphere. Owner was great in answering questions and there is a full book on little things to help with your stay. Super clean. We brought a lot of our own dishes and stuff but this place is really stocked with silverware, etc. so no need to bring that stuff.

The cabin exceeded our expectations. The cabin had everything we needed and we were very comfortable the entire weekend. It's in a good location to tour the area vineyards. I'm looking forward to returning during the warmer months!
