Take a step back in time at this authentic rustic 1860s Log Cabin. This cabin was built by a soldier returning from the civil war and sits where it was built in a beautiful 22 acre hayfield. Outlined by a rustic wood fence and centered between two spring heads. Several old walnut trees and a huge boxwood remain on the property. Has the original and working rock fireplaces located in the living and kitchen area. Decorated inside and out with antiques and local moonshine memorabilia. A few modern conveniences include electric stove, refrigerator, running water, bathroom, washer and dryer, antenna TV, and window a/c units. This is truly a treasure hidden in the small and rural community of Charity in Patrick County, Va.

peaceful and private in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Centrally located between Floyd, Stuart, Rocky Mount, & Martinsville, Virginia.

ATVs are welcome and plenty of parking if you wish to bring your boat for fishing in the nearby Philpott Lake.
Living nearby at the home place of my Grandmother Mamie Boothe, this little cabin was admired by me for many years. I have always respected and collected items from the past, the cabin was a great place to display my collections. My cabin became available for purchase in 2007 and I was fortunate enough to buy the old home. It has been a labor of love and now I would like to share it's charm with you. There are still many projects yet to be completed. So things will change from 1 year to the next. I am hoping my guests will enjoy staying so much that they will return year after year and enjoy my progress on the old home with me.
Pam Hall purchased this cabin in 2007
I love history and even as a child I collected what my mama called 'junk'. Some of that junk now decorates my gardens, porches and walls. I love it and I hope you will too!
This is not for everyone! If you want to experience rustic living (with some modern conveniences like running water, electric & internet, but no cable and usually no cell service) enjoy privacy, peace and quite, sitting on the porch swing with a book, or trying to count all the stars in the sky, this is the place for you!
With warm weather approaching I was reminded of our stay at this rustic cabin, looking forward to staying again. We stayed last year over labor day weekend on a whim and are so glad we did. Pam was very accommodating despite the last minute notice. We grilled and roasted marshmallows and just enjoyed the peace and quiet of the outdoors. The stars at night are like nothing we have ever seen, so many shooting stars. My little girl kept looking at them saying, thank you daddy - so sweet. By far it was the best vacation we have ever taken!
Plan on cooking outdoors most of the time, the indoor stove/pans etc are not practical, more decorative. I would recommend investing in a griddle and decent spatula for breakfast for your guest and maybe a toaster.
Plan on washing dishes by hand, one of the things I enjoyed most surprisingly. I LOVE LOVE LOVE her farm sink, could stand there all day, was actually relaxing. If I didn't convince you bring paper products just in case.
There are NO condiments, seasonings, or coffee filters. I brought coffee, but wound up improvising and using a paper towel as a filter. Something to consider having on hand for guests, though perhaps lacking given the last minute nature of our visit - not sure?
A booster seat that can attach to the kitchen chair or an old fashioned wooden high chair would be a nice addition.
I brought my own pack n play and set it up next to your quilt stand which wasn't a problem however it could be a nice addition to have one hand for future guests, they can be found on sale for $40-$60 and fold up nicely when not in use or a wooden mini crib for $99 would suite the decor nicely.
There is a lovely porch swing, but a tire swing or small play set could be a nice addition for little ones.
Loved seeing the cows outside, my little girl was elated!
My husband and I spent a few days at this wonderful cabin. We are in love with the cabin the setting and the area. I would love to know what the walls would say if they could talk the memories of the people and another era are in this cabin. We returned to the cabin one night and had truly been swept back in time ...no electricity. We layed on a blanket under a beautiful dark night with only the stars to light the sky and fell in love all over again. We would move there if we could.
My husband and I fell in love with this 150 year old cabin nestled in the mountains. We arrived to find it all ready for Christmas. Outdoor lights and decorations; indoor Christmas decorations, including a small tree; table set with holiday tablecloth and dishes; Christmas music playing; candles and woodstove burning. We appreciated the history of this cabin and all the antiques it is filled with; it made us feel like we had been transported in time. The only suggestion I have is the bathroom is in need of repainting and floor repair. My husband said more than once he could live there for the rest of his life. I, myself, wouldn't mind having a vacation home like this. We plan to return someday.
Me, my significant other, and our two dogs enjoyed our stay at this rustic log cabin over a long weekend. The grounds a secluded, well kept, and remind me of my great grandmother's farm. Inside the cabin was much larger than I thought from the pictures. We enjoyed the wood burning fireplace and woodstove in the kitchen. The décor in and out of the cabin is rustic, eclectic, and very enjoyable to behold. The cabin is filled with cozy quilts and we had no trouble keeping warm. The yard is fenced with a wooden slat-type fence with barbed wire, but it doesn't completely close in pets. Our dogs did great staying in the fenced part of the yard despite that. There are plenty of dishes, silverware, and glassware, but I'd recommend if you plan to cook inside on the electric stove that you bring any pans or cookware needed. There are two grills, a large and small one. There was plenty of bedding and towels/etc. We were looking for a quiet, "unplugged" getaway, and this was perfect! Pam was great, and the fresh cut flowers were a welcoming touch. She had the fireplace ready to go for us, and the whole experience was frustration free and relaxing. Highly recommended. We visited Chateau Morrissette, a winery about 20 minutes away on the blue ridge parkway while we were there (it's also dog friendly).
Beautiful property tucked away. Fresh flowers were in the cabin when we arrived. It was very clean and we had everything we needed. it was indeed rustic but that was what we were looking for. Lots of history inside and outside. I would recommend it to anyone looking for peace and quiet.
We really enjoyed our stay in the cabin. Pam did a wonderful job of making it warm and welcoming. It was very quiet and peaceful. We loved the fenced in yard, well sort of fenced in, but it was enough to keep our 3 dogs contained. We loved spending time on the front deck.
