Great cabin for Christmas!
We had a great experience spending Christmas at the cabin. The owners even had Christmas decorations set out! My husband and adult son and I enjoyed a great 6 night stay. The hike to the river was not too long, but very enjoyable. The kitchen is well-stocked and we cooked many meals while we were there. It is very convenient to Lynchburg, yet secluded at the same time. The Corner Market nearby had everything we needed to make our meals. We took a day trip to Monticello which was fun. We had a very memorable trip!
Relaxing fun getaway
Enjoying nature is one of our favorite things to do! The front and back porches are amazing and allow so much time to just sit and listen to nature in all of its glory! The fire pit is a blast too!!
We loved this place! It’s about :20 from Lynchburg and :30 from Liberty U. Beautiful drive through the country to get there. The owners were super responsive to questions as well. Very clean property! Will def stay again!
Disappointed...but not unpleasant.
Pictures are misleading not as spacious as they make house appear, or as neat and clean. Unless you are a hiker forget getting to the riverbank behind the house rock and steep drop down make it nearly impossible for your average person. Monacan Park while pretty there is no swimming and very murky water, fishing lines kept getting caught on things in the river. Would be nice for a boating though. Loved the country store, convenient and good food...
Judy, Thanks for your feedback, We strive to insure accuracy and desire our gests have an enjoyable stay. The trail down to the River is a bit long and is downhill (about 350 yards). There is good fishing off the dock down there. Especially for Catfish on the bottom of this deep section of the river. Thanks again and we will insure our cleaning crew stays on top of everything this Fall Season.
Cabin in the Woods
If you want a quiet and relaxing place surrounded by trees, this is the place for you. The cabin is well stocked with everything except groceries. The walk to the river is steep but if you are adventurous and younger than us, you will find the river beautiful in the fall. This area is close to town and we did several day trips to enjoy the history of this wonderful state.
We found it peaceful and place to rest up from life.
We had a wonderful time here. We found it restful and healing after the passing of husband and father Irvan. We saw 2 does and 3 spotted fawns in the woods. Thanks,Sharon&Charity
