The 1/2 mi. somewhat rocky drive often provides excellent wildlife viewing and may lead you a million miles from Monday. When you reach the home, parking is no problem (plenty of space). As you enter, the custom cedar is the most noticeable feature. The living area to the right has comfortable seating and a HD flat screen TV. The dining area is open to both the kitchen and living areas. The table seats 8 or 10 good friends with an additional 3 counter seats.

Shopping/Churches: The area has many of the national chains, including most restaurants, Wal Mart, and Lowes within 20 miles. The big store in town is Green Front Furniture in Farmville which occupies 12 huge warehouses with upscale items from around the world. Numerous antique and flea markets dot the area and an auction or estate sale occurs almost every weekend. Lynchburg is about 40 miles to the West and Richmond is about 70 miles to the East.
There is a large Amish population in the area and churches of most denominations are close by. The biggest of them being the Thomas Road Baptist in Lynchburg..
Nature: Deer and turkeys are plentiful and often seen from the decks or on the driveway. Rabbits and squirrels are also in the area. Birds from the occasional eagle or hawk to sparrows can be seen. Much more rare are bear and fox sightings.
The home is quiet inside and outside except for the sounds of nature.
The night sky is a treat for city dwellers. No man made lights can be seen from the rear deck and our own spiral galaxy, the Milky Way, is often visible as a faint band of light across the sky.
The 34 Mile High Bridge Trail is open to horses, walkers and non motorized bikes. It follows the old Norfolk & Western rail route through Farmville and over the Appomattox River as part of the rails to trails program. The trail's Western end is in Pamplin VA about 3 miles from the house. An easy horse ride on marked roads.
Relaxation: The comfortable beds are nice but the jetted tubs and the outdoor hot tub can help even the most stressed traveler. Even in the depths of winter it is worth a short sprint across the rear deck to experience the bubbles and water of the 98-104 degree jets.(easily adjusted to your liking)
A game of pool,foosball, cornhole, a video game, or a movie ( DVD player available) on the big screen is also available'
If quiet is your preference this is the spot for you. The nearest neighbor is about 1/2 mile away. Besides the crickets, about all you can hear is the occasional faint rooster or cow..
The new DISH HOPPER TV system allow you to watch any primetime show for the last 8 days. If you wait one day there is a selection that will eliminate the commercials for you.
I am retired and spend time improving the cabin and surrounding property.Our plan is to move there eventually though our condo requires considerably less upkeep.
James F. Booker purchased this house in 1830
The land has been in my family since before the civil war and my grandparents home (over 100 years old) on the property is being rehabed and may eventually house additional rental beds.
Renters seem to find a variety of things to enjoy about the place. I put considerable sweat equity into building the cabin and am very biased so perhaps reading the reviews may give you a more balanced view.
Our second trip to the Spring Creek Cabin was as great as our first. We had a total of four adults and four small children aged 6, 3, 2, and 1. Our plan was to get away and stay at the cabin for a five day weekend, and that is exactly what we did. The cabin is well equipped with everything you need for cooking, cleaning, laundry, coffee, trash bags and everything you can think of for the maintenance of small kids. The outdoor space is awesome with plenty of space for the kids to run around, play ball, and explore the woods and creek with the grown ups. Hot tub is clean and works great, fire pit, horseshoes, corn hole and the peaceful, beautiful scenery kept the adults happy. Inside is fully upgraded and comfortable, and the TV/WiFi allowed us to watch as much football/movies as we could have wanted. Fire pit was great with plenty of firewood. We plan on making this an annual trip for some great R&R!
An extremely relaxing weekend with all the amenities you could wish for. Watching the stars from the hot tub was amazing, saw deer in the front yard, plus an eagle and song birds. Beautiful setting.
This is a beautiful home and very private. It provides plenty to do both inside and out. It is very clean and well-kept. We will come back again!
The home is so much better than the photos. If you want to get away and relax, this is the house for you. Have coffee on the front porch or gaze at the stars on the the back deck.
My family stayed here Labor Day Weekend. The cabin was exactly as described! We relaxed , played games, went in hot tub and had a great time. There are things to do within driving distance. However we chose to just hang at the cabin! My boys explored the property and kept busy. We would definitely stay here again! Plenty of space and separation for large families as well!! Thanks for a great mini vacation !
The Spring Creek Cabin was a perfect place for a get away. You were out in the woods but yet close to town. The cabin was incredible well stocked and had great amenities. We enjoyed the hot tub after a 30 mile bike ride and enjoyed walking through the fields, and seeing the wild life.
We would recommend this cabin for anyone wanting to get away but yet have all the luxuries of home.
The Farmville/ Appomattox area can provide a secluded,quiet, and restful experience if that is your wish. However great antiquing and furniture shopping by the acre is available at Green Front Furniture.

The newly opened Musem of the Confedracy is now open in Appomattox.
Wildlife is abundant from bears to birds.
The rural location provides excellent stargazing. The more active can walk or ride through the rough trails of the 100 A. property at their own risk, but the Western end of the New 34 mi.

The newest additions include a hammock, horseshoes, cornhole and WiFi for those of a more leisurely bent.
