About Bob Chamberlain

We built this beautiful home as our second home to escape Florida during the summer. However, due to economic conditions, we decided to rent it rather than permit it to remain empty.

Bob Chamberlain purchased this house in 2005

Why Bob Chamberlain chose Blue Ridge Highlands

It is probably the largest upscale property in the rental market in the area making it perfect for families and friends gathering for vacations.reunions. birthdays, graduations etc.

What makes this house unique

Unlimited Long Distance Phone Service. All countertops are granite including the baths, all floors are oak or tile in the bathrooms, all the confeniences of home and the warmth and ambiance of a log home.

The deck is huge with the convenience of a 6 person hot tub and a gas grill.

Wonderful place- wonderful people!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed in this lovely cabin twice now- once with just our family (4 people) – we loved it so much and had such a great time that we brought back our extended family (10 people)!!

The cabin is top of the line all the way- great furnishings, everything you could need in the kitchen to cook with (and then some), great bedding, awesome deck, flat screen TVs, nothing has been spared here!

We have stayed at lots of cabins and this is by far the nicest one we have ever stayed in! Although it is top of the line, it is also very comfortable and feels “like home”- a very easy place to relax!!

I would also note that we have two small children (ages 1 & 5) and the cabin is very child friendly as they mention on the web site- the built-in beds upstairs were by far the favorite!!

I obviously love this cabin and would recommend it to anyone- the owners are very nice and accommodating and the care takers are also very helpful! Just a nice cabin, built in a nice place by nice people!! I am already planning my trip back next year!!

Gorgeous location, great way to disconnect !

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved this Cabin. The layout was awesome and the we made extensive use of the back porch for breakfast and then again in the evening hours. The peacefulness and setting were a great way to relax and enjoy each others company.

The cabin itself was spacious and nicely kept. Rules were clear, the cabin was very clean, and we left it as we found it. We enjoyed having everything there that we needed. We stocked up at the grocery store on the way in, and loaded the fridge (and the wine fridge!!) and just relaxed. Fairly easy to get to a few things in the area, took advantage of hiking and and the streams, canoed one day, went to North Carolina one day as well.

Would definitely recommend staying here. Location and quiet were perfect.

David & Nikki H, and family

Beautiful spacious property!

  • 4 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay at your beautiful home. EVERY imaginable amenity was available in the cabin. We enjoyed long walks around the area and only had to drive relatively short distances to find other things to do. My only issue was the implication that the house was handicap accessible. We booked it originally because my father was supposed to accompany us on the trip. Unfortunately, his health issues made it impossible for him to come, but that was for the best - the shower on the main floor and the walk into the house from the car would have made it difficult for him. Pleas be mindful that people who search for particular features, such as accessibility, expect them to be fulfilled.

Fantastic Getaway to Seclusion

  • 5 of 5

The mountain log home is a great way to get away from the hustle and buscle. This fantastic home is on top of a small mountain and its location is very secluded. I stayed in the home with my wife and two other couples and each couple had their own large bedroom and full bathroom. Lots of room for more people. Amenities were great, including: satelite tv, WiFi, coffee maker, dishwasher, garage, hot tub, laundry and spacious kitchen/deck/living room.

Bring a GPS to find the place as the roads are winding and narrow and cell phone service is "spotty" or none existent in the entire region for most carriers.

The property manager was great and very responsive to all our inquiries.

A wonderful choice! Private, beautiful, and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the weekend for our daughter's graduation from Virginia Tech. Go Hokies! It was a great choice since we had family coming in, and we all wanted to stay together, yet maintain a level of privacy not afforded by staying in a hotel.

The trip took a little more than an hour to campus given the log trucks, windy roads, and the time of day we traveled, but the accommodations were well worth it. The view was breath-taking, and the deck provided a much-needed place to relax after spending our days walking around campus.

We prepared breakfast and dinner at the cabin each day. The kitchen was fully equipped with cookware, dishes, and every appliance you could possibly need. I brought bowls and platters to use for our party, but we didn't use them.

We slept 9 adults and I toddler comfortably. We had plenty of pillows and blankets. Five stars across the board! Thanks, George!
