About Lisa Blakeslee

​​​​​​ From the time we were first married we always dreamed of owning a log cabin resort. We've done many different jobs throughout the years which gave us the knowledge and experience needed. Our most important job was raising our two sons Caleb and Noah. During our son's senior year in high school, we search for the perfect location to grow our dream into reality.

Lisa Blakeslee purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Lisa Blakeslee chose Faber

In 2013, when we first stepped foot onto this land, we knew we had found the perfect place. It was beautiful and inviting, just like coming home. The tranquility was overwhelming, and we knew anyone that came here would be nourished by it. We have spent the last two years cultivating the land and building these amazing cabins.

What makes this cabin unique

As your hosts, our goal is to provide you with the same opportunity that we are blessed with every day; to experience the beauty of nature all around you and to connect with the environment. Enjoy the Great Blue Heron awaiting on the far side of the lake; the deer feeding in the fields at dusk; the birds singing to you in the morning; and frogs adding their voices in the evening. Then before you retire to bed, you can just lay back and enjoy the magnificent starry skies. Tranquility at it's very best!

Please come to enjoy and restore yourself! It's our pleasure to welcome you!

-Duane and Lisa Blakeslee

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property is very tranquil; the cabins very clean and spacious. The kids (and us) had a great time fishing and boating in the lake. Walking the trails was also very enjoyable.

A very special place!

A wonderful get away. Beautiful scenic location and well decorated cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this cute cozy cabin on the lake. We were able to relax and experience a rural quiet getaway with our two-year-old son. The lake was lovely and accessible, and there are a variety of family-friendly activities nearby.

Relaxing retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four decided to get away for Thanksgiving and we are so happy we chose this cabin to stay in! What a beautiful and relaxing place! We enjoyed everything! The cabin is perfect and very clean! The shower was amazing! We walked on the trails, enjoyed the paddle boat, kayaks, and just enjoyed sitting at the waters edge. We enjoyed campfires at night too. The host Lisa, was very accommodating and we enjoyed meeting her and her son. We will definitely be back again!

Fantastic Modern Log Cabin Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Homestead Cabin at the Southern Comfort Lakeside Cabin Resort for 4 days. My husband loves log cabins, and I was drawn to this one because it had modern amenities in the kitchen and bathroom. The site and amenities were exactly as we expected. Everything is just as pictured. Duane came over and greeted us on our second day and was especially helpful during our stay. The cabin was clean and well stocked with starter amenities of towels, soap, dish washing detergent, and trash bags. Hamilton Lake is a perfect setting for relaxing and we especially enjoyed sitting in the chairs overlooking the lake. The site also included several walking trails and a fire pit for our use.

The log cabin is a great central location for exploring local breweries, wineries, distilleries, and farm to table restaurants on the Brew Ridge Trail. There was a binder in the cabin with recommended activities in the area. We were able to enjoy a beer flight and music at Devil's Backbone Brewery, enjoy farm to table food at Wood Ridge Farm Brewery, try bourbon infused with the smoke from real wood at Silverback Distillery, celebrate the 10th anniversary at Blue Mountain Brewery, and people watch while playing dominoes at the Beverly Cigar Store in Staunton. Relaxing every morning and evening at Homestead Log Cabin was the icing on the cake!

better than the 5 star reviews tell you

  • 5 of 5

I read all the reviews before picking this location, but they don't do it, or the owners, justice. The location is lovely, the quiet, the water, the trails they have set up in the woods, the shower, the shower (yes i said it twice). I have never seen a cabin so well appointed.

They could have put another 4 cabins along the lakeside and still got good reviews, but the separation means you don't even really notice the neighbors.

Duane and Lisa were also very kind to us personally. We had a family bereavement which meant we couldn't make our original scheduled dates (at very short notice), but they were kind enough to hold our booking for us until we could make it and we are very grateful to them for that as otherwise we would have missed this wonderful place.

Our kids really enjoyed the ability to run free for a change, one even went swimming (in Oct!)

PS, its within 5 miles of 2 breweries and 2 hard cider breweries(?) if that floats your boat.
