About The Owner

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1968

Why The Owner chose Afton

In the 1960s, we visited Nelson County and fell in love with the beautiful mountains and picturesque countryside, the farms, ponds, and people. Not long after, we bought property in Afton and built a log cabin using the Poplar trees growing on the property.

Very nice, relaxing

Cozy. Nice for couple. Inside stairs a bit steep but doable. Wifi worked great. Our ATT cell service didn't work but no problem since there is a phone for local calls.

Private, rustic getaway for two in the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little cabin in a convenient location near Afton Virginia. It's close to all the breweries, wineries, hiking and biking in the area. The cabin is very secluded and private with great views. The cabin itself is small but perfect for two people, or a couple and small children. It's charming and well appointed. The owner communicated well and was a pleasure to deal with. I would definitely stay here again.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed here last month (October) for a weekend getaway. We were attending a wedding at a Vineyard close by and decided to make it a 3 day weekend. We LOVED this cabin! It was perfect for the two of us. Very secluded and quiet. We got much needed rest and the view from the balcony off the Blue Ridge room is gorgeous! We hope to go back.

Very cute, and quaint

  • 4 of 5

Four people including 2 small children had a lovely time staying in this cabin. We we're very comfortable with the AC and although the kitchen and living room were one unit it was comfortable to sit outside on the large wrap around covered porch. Our son loved the swing and hammock, and the outside entrance to the large master bedroom was great when the little ones were asleep so that we didn't wake them. I just wish they had used a pedestal sink in the bathroom because you have to turn sideways to get into the shower. A larger person would have difficult time showering but there was plenty of hot water with good water pressure and it wasn't hard or soft water. Grocery stores are 15-30 minutes away but their is a great brewery/restaurant 10 min away. We had easy day trips to the natural bridge, skyline drive, and charlottesville.
