Locals know about the historic Bare Farm and its beloved Cabin on the River.
Many a wedding party has bumped down the dirt road to witness vows below its stained glass windows.
There have been festivities, a time or two.
Some folks tell the story of a dog that went tubing and a grandmother who parked herself on a lawn chair in the river to watch. There was a grandfather who danced till dawn, went home to feed the cows and hurried back to catch the last song.
Just 3 miles from historic Lexington, the Cabin sleeps 8, with two full size beds in one room, a queen size in the other, and a king size mattress on the floor in the loft.
There's a fully equipped kitchen facing a stone fireplace in the large main room.
There are old iron beds and hand made quilts. There's a glider on the porch where you might want to sit in the mornings to drink your coffee and watch the fog rise off the river.
Some say laughter still echoes through the trees.........
Peace and tranquility: If you are looking for a place to renew your spirit....the Cabin on the River at the Bare Farm is it.
Some say laughter still echoes through the trees..........
Wow! The cabin was just awesome and the pictures don't do it justice! The owner was just great (helpful, pleasant, informative) and the cabin had everything we could possibly need (books, DVDs, TV, music, grill, cookware, dishes, bath amenities, paper products, linens - WOW!). It was private and secluded but close to services (grocery, restaurants, etc); and, it was easy to find. The cabin was clean and well-maintained. If anything, the description understated how nice it is! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cabin! And, we especially appreciate that the cabin is pet-friendly. Our puppy loved the space and running in the front! Thank you so much for a wonderful time! We hope to come back!
What a wonderful, rejuvenating, perfect little get-away spot. Comfortable surroundings in the middle of the mountains with a stream flowing right in front of the property. Absolutely private, with a very large yard, screen porch, picnic table right near the water, and plenty of trails to explore. Inside the cabin was inviting and so welcoming with everything we needed. Vicki, the owner, thought of everything for the cabin. We wish we were still there listening to the rain of the roof and breathing the clear mountain air.
This is a wonderful place, almost unique in the feeling it evokes. You travel to the cabin through a large horse farm with views of the lovely rolling hills of Rockridge County and the cabin itself is something which seems to come out of history. The immediate view of the river is striking and there are miles of trails to walk which offer additional views and a variety of birds and wildlife (especially deer). It is very beautiful and peaceful and impressive in a way which gave me a physical sensation. Vicki - and her brother - were welcoming, informative but not intrusive. They were just very nice peole who taught us about their area and made us feel comfortable. I would love to return.
Claims that this special place attracts happiness are well-founded. From the moment I stepped onto the property, I felt uplifted. The sounds are magical, the sights are delightful. The cabin is well-appointed and lovingly decorated, comfortable and spacious. It is close to Lexington, a charming town with attractions for students, historians, and shoppers. My only regret is that we spent only two nights here, but I'm looking for an excuse to return.
Bare Farm Cabin is located 3 miles from historic Lexington, Virginia, in Rockbridge County. This is the home of Washington & Lee University, Virginia Military Institute, The Virginia Horse Center, Southern Virginia University, Natural Bridge, Lee Chapel, the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Appalachian Trail, home of Stonewall Jackson and Robert E.

We are one of a kind. Come see..... and enjoy.
