About David Johnston

My wife and I have lived in the area since 1985. She teaches school, and I am a builder. We live on site. We are avid hiking biking outdoor enthusiasts that would be happy to help you choose your outings while visiting.

David Johnston purchased this cabin in 2010

Why David Johnston chose Virginia

I built this Lexington Virginia Cabin in 2010 due to the quiet setting, and the proximity to The Goshen Wildlife management area. The recreational opportunities are without compare. Its proximity to Lexington VA and The VA Horse Center make it an ideal location for a Vacation Destination in the Shenandoah Valley of VA

What makes this cabin unique

The views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and southern Shenandoah Valley in this quiet setting are without equal. It is just two minutes to Goshen Pass, with its swimming, fishing, hiking, and canoeing. It is 6 miles to the Horse center, with no stop lights!

Great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter (who goes to a nearby college) was horse showing in Lexington so I decided to go down to watch. I also thought it would be a great time for a girls weekend so my sister, my other daughter and my exchange student (Turkmenistan) all came down too. Everything was wonderful! We had a little glitch regarding payment but Dave was very understanding and nice about it and we easily got it sorted out. The show grounds were only about 15 minutes away which was absolutely perfect for us. I loved that Dave gave us a map and pointed some things out for us (especially since service for phones/gps is very sporadic throughout the area). The house was clean (albeit a little bare) and comfortable. The high point of it all though is the view! It's absolutely gorgeous! Even tho it was rather chilly, we spent as much time as we could outside! The clouds constantly changed and we never tired of watching them. And when it gets dark, you become mesmerized by the stars! Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to build a fire but if/when we come back, we definitely will! I would easily recommend this cabin to anyone!

Wonderful Family Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place is exactly what we were looking for: clean, comfortable, cozy, and simple, with an incredible view and sizable outdoor area. The fenced yard was perfect for our toddler, who we could let roam free with peace of mind. Loved the fire pit, spectacular sunsets, and seeing and hearing the cows day and night. Dave, our host, was friendly and helpful. A very special place to which we would gladly return.

Twinkle, Twinkle Litte Star!

  • 5 of 5

Best part of our stay was sitting by the outdoor fireplace and star gazing each night, beautiful sunsets over the mountains, and the cows greeting us each morning! Truly a piece of paradise in Lexington, VA! Cabin had everything we needed.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful stay in this little house. While it's an easy drive from DC, you feel so secluded and relaxed with the mountains and cows outside your door. You're still close enough to I-66 if you want to do some exploring -- we made it to Shenandoah National Park, which I highly recommend. The home was very clean and well maintained. While small, it was the perfect size for the two of us and our dog. We loved having morning coffee on the patio, watching the fog lift from the mountain. I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone. You won't be disappointed.

Fabulous place

  • 5 of 5

As previously stated by others, Windymile offers peace & quiet + fabulous views.

Close enough to town yet far enough out to forget about the real world.

We used it as our home base while attending the Greenbrier Classic in W.V.

The amenities in cabin were spot on; kitchen is nicely outfitted with all you need to prepare your meals. Clean, comfortable and did I mention the views? Amazing.

Thank you David for sharing your slice of paradise with us.

Cozy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Windymile Cabin is charming and cozy. It is just the right size for a small family and has all the comforts of home. The views are breath taking. It is far enough from town that you can enjoy the peace and tranquility of the are but close enough to town to gather supplies. We were in town for VMI graduation with our family and truly had a wonderful time. I highly recommend this little cabin that is well maintained, comfortable and clean.
