About Tom & Lynn Piacentini

Here we are with our two beautiful and talented daughters.

We have always dreamed of our own getaway and rented for years. We had ideas of how the experience could be improved and are now giving it a try for ourselves.

Tom & Lynn Piacentini purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Tom & Lynn Piacentini chose Blue Ridge

This was a cabin we saw on the first day looking. It had all the cozy charm we were looking for and incredible potential. We fell in love with it immediately!

What makes this cabin unique

Off the beaten path but so close to everything. The short gravel road puts you in the middle of the woods where the quite and solitude can be enjoyed.

Best Cabin Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I'm hesitant to write this review because I fear that we won't be able to rent this cabin again due to it's popularity! My two daughters and I just spent a few days in this adorable cabin and had a wonderful time. I'm very particular about the cabins we rent and Birdsong exceeded our expectations! It's extremely clean, beautifully decorated, and cozy. The location is one of the attractions, being just a few minutes from downtown Blue Ridge. We loved the cabin so much that we didn't want to leave! We enjoyed both fireplaces and spending time on the screened porch listening to the sounds of the river below the cabin. My family has been renting cabins here for many years and Birdsong is my favorite!

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at your lovely cabin. The cabin was very clean and it had everything anyone would ever need.

Our favorite part of the cabin was the screened in porch and listening to the rushing sounds of the creek.

It was very close to Mercier Orchards and downtown Blue Ridge.

Tom and Lynn thanks for sharing your cabin with us.

We hope to be able to come back sometime in October of 2018.

Beautiful with great views!

Beautifully decorated. The master is very updated and comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped. The best part of the house is the back porch. I didn't want to leave!

Tranquil beauty!

  • 5 of 5

There was one problem with our stay...it wasn't nearly long enough. From the time we pulled up and entered the beautiful Birdsong, I felt a sense of calm. This place is stunning - from the location to the staging. Just gorgeous. I want that screened in porch as well as the rushing sounds of the creek below. Thanks so much for a wonderful, peaceful, beautiful stay.
