This cabin is available all year! My beautiful log cabin in the country has all the amenities of home. It's the perfect place to get away and enjoy nature while staying in elegant and spacious accommodations. This is a special place when you need to kick back and relax! 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. Curl up and enjoy an evening of reading, selecting from the nice collection of books. Or play any of the many board games provided. Grill on charcoal or gas. 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.

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.

Tom Bradshaw purchased this cabin in 1991

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.

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.

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

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

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.

Beautiful cabin in Shenandoah Valley. Everything thought out for a great stay. A bit of a challenge for mobility impaired to reach second floor, but well worth the effort. Travel through Goshen Pass and down Crabtree Falls Highway eastward for great scenery. I have lived in Virginia most of my life and continue to marvel at its hospitality and beauty. Thanks, Tom, for patience and understanding. Come visit us in Williamsburg.

Owner's Response: I took some friends up to Montebello and Crabtree Falls last week and then went through Goshen Pass Chrisamas day! We have lived here for 40 years and still marvel at the beauty around us. Thanks, Larry for choosing my cabin for your Christmas getaway.

What a wonderful place to spend a relaxing weekend close to Lexington VA and Natural Bridge. We were in the area for The Citadel/VMI football game. We had two couples and a 19 month old. It was just perfect for all of us to share the cabin. The cabin had everything we needed for a comfortable place to stay. It was nice waking up in the mornings to a variety of birds and horses out back. The owners have thought of everything down to bird seed to feed the birds. A hammock, grill and fire pit to make a fire out back were all nice to have. The cabin is just a short drive from downtown Lexington and very close to Natural Bridge off I-81. While there were a few bugs around, which can't be helped, it was clean and a perfect place for the weekend.

Owner's Response: My cabin is inthe country and near Lexington and Safari Park. It was built as a vacation rental and has never been used otherwise. In the fall there are lady bugs in our area and everyone has them! They are harmless and are gone in a few months. Winter can be a great time to visit this beautiful area.Plan a winter get-away!

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.

My husband and I were looking to get away for a long weekend with our infant and dog, and came across the cabin on the internet. We really enjoyed our stay here. We found the cabin to be very cozy and relaxing, and the location is great for sight-seeing in nearby Natural Bridge and Lexington.

Lovely place but too close to an interstate

My husband and I spent here 5 days after Christmas 2011. It's a lovely, comfortable cabin, and a really great place for pooch owners--as good as Tom's description and then some. However, it is also less than 0.25 miles away from I-81, with only one other property between the cabin and the busy interstate, with truck traffic throughout the night, which made fir noisier nights than in downtown DC. Not recommended for light sleepers.

Owner's Response: Many guests have commented on how convenient my cabin is to the interstate exit! The exit is only 2 minutes from the cabin!! It would be wonderful if I could solve this one. When the leaves are on the trees the road is hardley noticeable.

Serene Retreat

We were a pretty diverse bunch...young adults, young children, grandparents, and the family dogs. From the moment we pulled into the drive until the reluctant departure, we enjoyed every bit of our stay! The cabin is comfortable and thoughtfully designed for guests.

Our primary interest while there was supposed to be visiting
Natural Bridge but the time relaxing at the cabin quickly eclipsed this! We did have a nice day at the Bridge and returned that evening to the Colonial Dining Room for dinner (very good meal) and of course the lights/story of creation.

Our short stay was intended to be a mini-getaway and respite...and thanks to this gem it was even better than that. Many thanks to the owners for such a neat, comfy place in the mountains!

Owner's Response: There are many good restaurants in Lexington as well. The Colonial Dining Room in the Natural Bridge Hotel is a very beautiful facility. Their Seafood Buffet on Friday evening is very popular and may require advance reservations. They have an intimate bar called the Foxes Den which is adjacent to the dining room.
There are several fine dining restaurants in Lexington. The Southern Inn, The Red Hen, Cafe Michele, and the Bistro all are highly regarded. Also there is a tapas restaurant called the Brix.
I eat at Nikkos Grille on Main for breakfast and lunch.
The Pink Cadillac at the interstate near the cabin is an old fashioned diner and serves large portions. It is very popular and is a good breakfast spot.
