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!!

Owner's Response: We are always glad to have you stay at our home. And, it seems each time you visit we have added things. The next step will be surfacing the steep drive. Thank you as always. George Gehl

This was or second family stay celebrating our Christmas together. Their were warm evenings by the fire,Christmas Carols and the smell of fresh pine from the Tree. Fond memories of making cookies and candy. Playing card games with our children and grand children. The cabin was beautifully decorated for Christmas, thanks to Bob, which .hightened the spirit of family and Christmas. All the rooms were very clean and spacious.The kitchen appliances were fantastic including the wine cooler. The deck is very large for all to enjoy the views of the stream and the sound of the waterfall . We pan on coming next year as this has become our family tradition.

Thanks Again,

The Tomcik Family

Spent a week at this cabin about a month ago...and I use the term "cabin" loosely. This place is far from what one thinks of as a cabin. It is absolutely beautiful. Loved all the interior wood...floors, stairs, railings, ceilings and beams. It is waaaaaay above the highest standards of a typical cabin rental. The kitchen was three times the size of my own kitchen and had over-sized gourmet-type appliances. In fact, the kitchen had every possible appliance, dishware, pots and pans, etc. that anyone could possibly want. There is a large dining room that could handle a crowd and plenty of space inside and out. There is a great, huge deck with a wonderful hot tub that we relaxed in, 5 out of our 7 nights there. And I can't forget to mention the gas fireplace in the great room. It was so nice to turn it on in the evenings when we came in from the hot tub and just sit and relax by the flickering flames.

I've read some posts where people complained about the driveway. We had no issues with it and didn't think it was nearly as steep as what some folks made it seem. My brother in law did have a bit of a tire-spinning problem coming up the drive but he was in a small pickup truck with no weight in the rear end. We were in an old Durango and had absolutely no problem with the driveway.

The caretaker (Bob) was super to work with. We had booked this place over 9 months before our actual vacation time arrived. I contacted him with questions, several times over those months and he was always very cooperative and patient with me. On our first full day at the cabin, he even stopped by to check on us and make sure that everything was OK, that we had everything we needed and to answer any last minute questions we might have. Great guy! Hi Bob!

The area near the cabin is beautiful too. We spent some time in Floyd, Meadows of Dan and Fancy Gap. Had lunch one afternoon at Chateau Morrisette (I highly recommend the food). We also did some wine tasting there and picked up a case to bring home with us (awesome view from the winery and really good wine). We have been to this area before but this was our first time at this cabin. We will definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed the hot tub on the large, expansive deck. The jets seemed a little weak or clogged, but it was a beautiful setting and experience.

A special place.

It was our 50th Wedding Anniversary which we shared with our three children and their spouses and our grandchildren (6) ranging in age from 9-16. The description of the house was accurate. I was unclear as to the proximity of the brook and it indeed was a one block downhill trek from the house but was audible and visible from the house. We were also unclear as to which areas of the brook were public access versus private property of adjoining owners. Perhaps a map or description of this could be made available to future renters to avoid inadvertent trespassing. The area is beautiful for sure. There is little to want for in the home itself. I am a cook and we found everything needed and every imaginable appliance. The owner gets an A plus for sharing!! The downstairs bedrooms are adequate if a bit gloomy feeling, perhaps softer lighting would help. The second downstairs bedroom is not private for a couple but still adequate.

The property was clean and welcoming. There were missing lightbulbs which would have helped with the ambiance in the lower and top level. The hot tub was clean and working perfectly. There were plenty of towels and clean bedding in every room.

Customer service was no issue and Mr. Chamberlain answered all of our questions.

The few days were an adventure and this part of our country is wonderful to see. We parked our cars after arriving and did not get into them again. It was a true break that our children needed. We were relaxed and warm, well fed and happy. Thank you for sharing with us.
