Afton Log Cabin Get-Away is nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Afton, Nelson County, Virginia, just 10 miles from I-64 between Charlottesville and Waynesboro. Cozy, quaint, and secluded on 12 wooded acres, Afton Log Cabin was built in the late 1960s using Poplar trees growing on the property.

The first floor is a family room with bathroom and kitchenette. The bathroom has a toilet, sink, and shower. The kitchenette is fully equipped with dishes, utensils, pots/pans, and a stovetop Corning Ware coffee maker. Coffee, tea, creamer, and sugar are provided for guests' convenience. Paper products are supplied in the bathroom and kitchen.

The Loft has two sleeping areas with double and twin beds. The Blue Ridge Room on the second floor with queen bed is accessible from both the loft and a private entrance from the balcony and steps that lead to the yard. Lawn chairs are provided on the balcony for guests to relax and enjoy the beautiful vistas of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The wrap-around porch and large rear porch with picnic table and Adirondack chairs enhance the livability and enjoyment of the cabin. Hammock, swing, and basketball hoop extend the fun into the spacious yard surrounding the cabin.

There are satellite/Direct TV/VCR combinations in the family room (DVD), Loft (VHS) and Blue Ridge Room (DVD). Be sure to bring your favorite movie and some CDs so you can relax to your favorite melodies on the CD player in the Blue Ridge Room. If you enjoy snuggling up to a good book, take your pick from more than 50 books in the Loft.

Afton Log Cabin is only 15 minutes from Wintergreen Resort, 20 minutes from Waynesboro, and 25 minutes from Charlottesville, Staunton, and Lovingston, the county seat of Nelson County. Parks, hiking trails, restaurants, antique shops, churches, museums, and historical and cultural points of interest offer guests a wide range of things to do.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1968

In the 1960s, we visited Nelson County and fell in love with the beautiful mountains and picturesque countryside, the farms, ponds, and people. Not long after, we bought property in Afton and built a log cabin using the Poplar trees growing on the property.

Seclusion, natural beauty, and view of the Blue Ridge Mountains

Four people including 2 small children had a lovely time staying in this cabin. We we're very comfortable with the AC and although the kitchen and living room were one unit it was comfortable to sit outside on the large wrap around covered porch. Our son loved the swing and hammock, and the outside entrance to the large master bedroom was great when the little ones were asleep so that we didn't wake them. I just wish they had used a pedestal sink in the bathroom because you have to turn sideways to get into the shower. A larger person would have difficult time showering but there was plenty of hot water with good water pressure and it wasn't hard or soft water. Grocery stores are 15-30 minutes away but their is a great brewery/restaurant 10 min away. We had easy day trips to the natural bridge, skyline drive, and charlottesville.

(Feb 2012) The cabin was perfect for our weekend getaway! It was a short drive to the basketball game were we attending in Charlottesville. The cabin was close to our favorite winery and there are many others in the area to visit. The back porch is a wonderful place to sit and have some wine. The owner was extremely pleasant and accommodating. We would gladly stay here again!

Top-off Your Skyline Drive Experience

We stayed here for 2 nights in September 2009 and were absolutely delighted with the log cabin. Not only was it well-appointed, cozy and clean, it was in a central location not far away from Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway, Charlottesville and easy to get to. When sitting on the back porch, you can take in a spectacular view of Afton Mountain. It was a true "get away from it all" rustic experience for us and possessed all the authenticity of a true log cabin. I would recommend this log cabin to anyone who is interested in a rustic mountain get-away and for those seeking accomodation along the Drive and Parkway. We plan to revisit the log cabin another time in the Fall to experience the Fall foliage in the region.
