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!!

A special place.

  • 4 of 5

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.

Absolutely perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a lovely girls' weekend at this "off the grid" cabin. Don't let the word "cabin" fool you--this is a gorgeous place with a lovely kitchen, ample room, hardwood floors, and a fabulous deck, where we spent plenty of time enjoying the beautiful Blue Ridge. Caught fish in the stream, biked on the Blue Ridge Parkway, hit Nancy's Candy Company, and spent an afternoon ambling in Floyd! Truly a perfect place. Thank you!!

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

A gem hidden in the mountaintops near Floyd, VA. This home is simply amazing. Fully furnished with everything you could need for a peaceful getaway. It has ample bedrooms, bathrooms, living, dining, and outdoor space for everyone. Log beam and post construction is the perfect fit for the luxury "cabin". Two sets of washer/dryers and a second refrigerator in the garage are added bonus features. Not to mention a beautiful flowing stream just below the upper deck/hot tub. The photos on the webpage show well, but don't completely do this house justice. Kudos to the owners and managers of this property. We will definitely be back in the future. Our gratitude.

Secluded location with numerous opportunities of things to do in the area

  • 4 of 5

THIS IS A TEST - I spent 20-30 minutes writing a review that when I hit SUBMIT it said there was a problem with your system and all was lost - so this is a test to see if it still rejects this time. If it works I will try again.

Lovely and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at your beautiful home at Highlands at Chisolm Creek in July. What a wonderful vacation. Your home was exceptional! We played board games, worked on puzzles, and just enjoyed the mountain air and family time together. Thank you so much for letting us stay at your vacation home. Your home had so many unique qualities, we could tell a lot of care was taken to build such a dream house. Just loved it. Thanks again.
