2 Bedroom 1 Bath Riverfront Cabin on Cattle Farm, Satellite Internet and TV
About Teresa Tibol
We currently live in Bristol, VA. This is our cattle farm where we also come to relax and play with our family on the river.
Teresa Tibol purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Teresa Tibol chose Mendota
We fell in love with this property because of the view as you crest over the ridge from the entrance. It is total privacy and seclusion. Phenomenal views from many areas of the property, all of which are easily accessible. The property had been a cattle farm in the same family for 3 generations when we purchased it. We felt we were purchasing a piece of history as well as a gorgeous place to come and relax and enjoy what this area has to offer while still maintaining it as a working cattle farm. You are out in the mountains for privacy, but not too far from town for when you want to go shopping, out to eat, or need the usual grocery items. The cabin is simple with the necessities for a lovely stay, but we will be adding upgrades as time goes on both inside and out. So, even though you will enjoy your stay, each time you come back, it will get better and better!
What makes this Cabin unique
There are rocking chairs and a picnic table on the front porch overlooking the river. Warning: it will put you to sleep! The sound of the river is so relaxing. You can sit in the rocking chairs and just relax and read a book. Open the windows to enjoy the fresh air and hear the sounds of the river from the inside. The best place to visit on the property is the bottom land across the hay fields on the river where we call 'the beach'. There are magnificent shade trees lining the river where you can sit and relax or wade in the river, or bring a blanket to have a picnic.
Check-in: 3:00 PM
No smoking inside the cabin, please keep it outside. Children are welcome. Please keep an eye on them as there is electric fence outside and uneven terrain as well as river frontage. The front porch/deck is gated / has railing sufficient to keep small children inside. Still, watch as this is an active cattle farm and cows are not pets. You and children are not advised to walk up to any cattle seen on the farm. They are for viewing only. You are welcome to walk about the property at your leisure, but please be aware of the sections where cattle have access. We will show you on the day of your arrival. Please also keep the gates closed while you are at and away from the farm so that the cattle do not come into your area. Check in and out times can be flexible. If you need to check in earlier or check out later than the specified times, please feel free to ask. Please keep all windows and doors locked when you are not at the property. Please be sure to clean up before you leave. Please leave the cabin in the same condition as you would expect it when you arrived.

We went to the Bristol Dragway for the weekend and this was perfect place to stay out of the busy town and in a peaceful setting to rest for the next day. It was great.
Absolutely loved our time here!! It's so peaceful and relaxing!! The owner is great and very accommodating!! Would definitely visit again!!
A peaceful getaway
The cabin was perfect for a getaway from the hustle and bustle in the city. The owners were always in touch and got back to you instantly. Everything was exactly as described. I would definitely rent again.
Absolutely LOVED our weekend here! We’re huge fans of nature and being outdoors, away from it all. This is the perfect getaway spot. The cattle roaming and the forever rolling hills were our favorite part! The mountains and valleys truly are breathtaking. Would definitely recommend this property and we already plan on visiting again!
We have stayed here several times and enjoy it more each visit. It's a great place to get a true feel of the best aspects of country life without any of the work!
Enjoyed the cattle roaming. The river flowing was peaceful. Little difficulty getting the canoe in the river but managed. We were not able to get to the beach as the cattle was blocking the road but it was entertaining. The cabin was well equipped and clean.
