Blue Ridge Mountains - Beautiful, Water-Front Mountain Log Home
average rating of 4.8513513 based on 74 reviews

Outstanding in all aspects; A modern "classic" in a most beautiful setting; America, defined.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 11 stout veterans gathered for a three-day "boondoggle" reunion on the local golf links and stayed at the Highlands at Chisholm Creek; The "lodge" as we called it is situated in a rustic setting nestled into the side of a climbing hill, with a panoramic view of the surrounding country and at night, a gorgeous view of the celestial bodies above. The home was meticulously maintained, well-appointed with the modern conveniences to allow for preparing bountiful meals - a great dining table to serve as the centerpiece for fellowship and conversation. The large deck and hot tub provide a relaxing charm- especially as older bodies unwind after a day at the Olde Mille resort golf course (highly recommended). Despite some late March showers negating an opportunity for the fly fishing we had hoped for, the flowing creek offered calm and serenity - especially in the evening, blocking out any noise beyond nature's own. The bedding was ample, even a few 6'foot frames able to get a good night's rest - the washer and dryer units (2 of them) coming in handy to wash away the day's dust - the flat screen TV provided some NCAA basketball viewing of the Final 4 - and even a movie night. For families or groups of friends looking for a getaway that is off the beaten path, but not so far - we highly recommend this home. The design and layout of the home, coupled with the majesty of the mountains and crisp, cool air, afforded a most hospitable setting. Indeed, the captivating setting and austerity of this grand Scots-Irish country served as a gateway for a reflection of the past, with ceremonial toasts offered, complemented with tall tales of days of yore, intermingled with memories of faraway fields of strife and stories that could be told in confidence and comfort of knowing that the hills would keep true to their silent, eternal watch over those loved and gone, and as well futures' yet to unfold, in the land of the Free and the home of the Brave. America, the Beautiful; indeed. Stay here. Hike, fish, golf, relax, bond -You will be refreshed and renewed.

Owner's Response: We receive nothing, but great reviews, but no one has ever said it better. It is getting away from daily pressures and traveling to a remote, rural, mountain location with all the beauty of nature without sacrificing the modern conveniences. Those of us who lie in metropolitan areas and lower elevation, forget how many stars there are in the sky until we sit one night on that deck in the hot tub. I don't remember the sounds of crickets and the flickering of all of the fireflies since I was a boy. We spent $30,000.00 just on dynamite to place the home where it is. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our home. You truly captured the essence of being there. Thank you, The Owners

Fun filled family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Highlands was cozy and warm inside with all the amenities as described. This crazy family went four wheeling and hiking in 8 degree weather, while enjoying all that nature has to offer in this beautiful area of Virginia.

Bob Chamberlain was responsive to our questions and gave us privacy as it it was our own home. Thank you!

Perfect for Family, Friends, and Fun

  • 5 of 5

We are three senior couples who spent a whole week at this cabin. Each couple had a bed and bathroom on a different level. There was plenty of room to spread out or come together for meals, games, and TV. Kitchen is very well equipped which made meal prep easy. It was our first time to experience fall in the mountains, so really enjoyed all the beautiful scenery of the Virginia countryside. We traveled to Natural Bridge, Grayson Highlands State Park, Mt. Airy, and Ayers Apple Orchard. The men also went to the NASCAR race in Martinsville. We took hikes down to the creek nearly everyday. This is a beautiful cabin for friends and family to really get away from it all.
