About Sharon Campbell
I'm a Mom and grandmother and professional facilities manager, who enjoys family, friends, nature, decorating, gardening, arts & crafts, antiquing, reading and music. For many years I dreamed of owning a log cabin. In 1996, I was able to purchase "Cabin on the Lake". I've made many improvements to the property and while I am happy most anywhere, I'm most at home at "Cabin on the Lake" and I hope my guest will be too.
Sharon Campbell purchased this Cabin in 1996
Why Sharon Campbell chose Farmville
Owning a log home has always been a dream of mine and I feel blessed to be the caretaker of this wonderful Virginia home. I grew up at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Amherst County about an hour away and many of my ancestors lived in log cabins in the mountains of Virginia. Over the years my career has taken me to Mississippi, North Carolina and then home to Virginia in 1991 when I moved to Farmville and worked at Longwood University. I saw this property when I first moved to Farmville and fell in love with the setting and the potential beauty in a "diamond in the rough" that had been lovingly neglected. I was able to purchase the property and 5 acres in 1996 and slowly as time and funding allowed, I started restoring it while I made it my home. In 1999, my career took me away from Farmville to Staunton, VA and I rented the cabin to long term renters until August 2008 when I started a year long renovation which included both interior and exterior areas. At that time, I didn't plan to turn it into a vacation/short term rental, but as the renovation progressed and my life circumstances changed (I was facing a job change and didn't know where I would end up living), God continued to plant the idea in my head that I should share this with others. With a lot of prayer and gratitude, I started to see how sharing this place with others might be an opportunity for me to cover the expenses and still be able to enjoy it every so often with my family. I proceeded on faith and it has been a blessing to me and I hope to others to have a place to come to that is as special to me as is my humble "Cabin on the Lake." My plans are to continue to work on it and love and care for it the very best I can.
What makes this Cabin unique
Peace and quiet, country setting yet convenient to everything in Town of Farmville, two local colleges and this historic area of Virginia. The cabin is rustic yet comfortable and the views from the great room of the lake and the screened front porch are wonderful. If you just looking to take a deep breath and hear the quietness.... you will love Cabin on the Lake.

Best rental ever!
This is by far the best vacation rental we have ever experienced. Everything was clean and we had all that we needed. There was 10 of us and we had all that we needed. Plenty of towels, beds blankets etc. we are from Florida and the weather was quite cold for us but the cabin was so warm and comfortable we didn’t even notice. I would highly recommend Sharons beautiful place and we will be back.
Best Cabin in Farmville
We love staying at The Cabin while visiting our son at H-SC! So comfortable and close to everything in the area. Sharon has a special spot, equipped with all things necessary to make our home away from home in Virginia.
This cabin is located just outside of Farmville, convenient to both Longwood and Hampden-Sydney. The beds are comfortable, and there is an abundance of towels and bed linens. The kitchen is well supplied, and the patio and fire pit are great. We enjoyed our stay, and would definitely rent again.
Good property to relax and enjoy.
We love staying at the cabin while visiting our son at HSC. Great location between campus and downtown, roomy, and cozy comfortable.
Thanks, Liz and as always, you are a welcomed guest. Thanks for continuing to support my sharing of Cabin on the Lake.
Very nice spot
Stayed a few times. Quiet peaceful spot.
Not fancy but has all you need.
Best of Virginia small towns offering scenic lakes, parks, railway walking trail, fabulous shopping, art and music festivals (two colleges) and the Heart of Virginia festival in May. Close to many historic and scenic Virginia attractions and a great getaway or 'city escape'.
