PERFECT, SCENIC, RUSTIC BUT COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing place! Incredibly charming and peaceful. There was firewood stacked and ready to go. I was preparing to cook some bacon and asparagus over the fire when I realized I had forgot to bring olive oil. Saved by the canola over the stove!! I certainly would have loved to stay longer. Janis was quite a gracious host.

Secluded, Rustic, & Romantic

I cannot begin to describe how much my wife and I enjoyed spending a beautiful autumn weekend in this cabin. My job keeps me out of town most of the time so when I asked my wife if she wanted to get away from it all with me for a weekend she was all in. In my younger days I did a lot of camping and backpacking so my idea of "getting away" means total seclusion and getting back to nature. However, my wife is not an experienced camper and wanted some basic modern amenities & this cabin had everything she needed while maintaining a very rustic charm. It turned out to be the perfect combination of getting back to nature yet having some comforts of home. Heck who wouldn’t like a nice steak dinner on a cool autumn night! We saw wild turkey, deer, hawks, and eagles right from the front porch! The only drawback to our stay in the cabin is that we didn’t plan well enough to be able to stay longer. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this place to anyone that has a respect for old world charm and needs to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Fabulous Stay at the Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
So many times the on-line photos are much better than the actual rental property. But, this historic cabin was even more lovely and spotlessly clean than the pictures could capture! The owners took great care to rehab the old cabin into one of rustic comfort using top notch fixtures and great period antiques. Nothing was missing from the list of amenities... it was beautifully appointed. We loved the quiet, isolated sense that you get being in the woods. We hiked Crabtree Falls... tallest falls east of the Mississippi. And, we enjoyed the Southern Living designated "Best Apple Pie" at Woodruff's Store. Property owner, Janis, answered all our questions and made us feel like family... fortunate to have found this bit of heaven in the Blue Ridge. We would go back again in a minute and would recommend it to people who can appreciate the hard work and care that has gone into the renovation.

The Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5
Our “home away from home” experience in this cozy country cabin was exceptional in every way. This authentic log cabin is filled with all the conveniences that that can be imagined. It is surrounded with nothing but the wonderful sounds of nature’s forest and the spectacular view of the beautiful Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains. The craftsmanship combined with all of the personal touches that were provided creates a truly welcoming atmosphere. This is beyond doubt a place that one can come to get away from the busyness of the modern world and refresh your inner being. Our stay here was for the purpose of seeing our beautiful new granddaughter, whose name is Cedar Wren. That makes the cabin all the more special, and we will always remember it as the “Cedar Wren House”.

Our stay was incredibly relaxing and enjoyable. The listing was very accurate; the cabin is even more adorable in person and very clean and well maintained. Communication with the owner was prompt and polite. I would happily recommend this cabin rental to anyone!
