Stunning views of Paul's mountain

This location was perfect for my husband and I when we went to a reunion at Sweet Briar in May of 2015. The house is adorable and so tucked away! We loved the antiques in the home and the bed was super comfy. This house and the surrounding countryside made my husband fall in love with Virginia! We will definitely be back!

I surprised my wife with three days and two nights in this cabin. It easily exceeded all of our expectations. My wife fell in love with the decor and was amazed out how neat and clean it was from top to bottom. It seamlessly combines rustic charm with all of the modern conveniences we are accustomed to. She really appreciated the smell and feel of the linens and I appreciated the ample supply of fire wood that did not require any extra labor. The views were great and the modern HVAC system kept us warm and cozy even while it dipped into the 20's outside. We definitely want to come back and wouldn't even consider looking into staying anywhere else. It is perfect.

Delicious Solitude

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is a perfect coming together of simple & rustic and modern. It had everything we needed, was comfortable and well-equipped, but maintained its rural, old fashioned charm. We really appreciated the attention to detail and cleanliness, as well as all the homey touches. A wonderful vacation overall!

Wonderfully sited cabin with great views of blue ridge mountains. The cabin retains modern comforts while preserving its historic character. The owners were responsive and welcoming. We have rented this cabin multiple times and would recommend to our friends and family.
