Beautiful Rustic Cabin Experience

  • 5 of 5

This cabin had everything we needed for our fishing trip amazing views, remote location, and a wonderful rustic feel with all the amenities. Town and shopping were just a few miles in either direction and hosts were very hospitable. Definitely plan to be back. Great experience!

Clean, nice setting and views

  • 5 of 5

Had a long weekend with my kids and we had a great time. The setting was great and it was so quiet. Perfect for a small family weekend or couples retreat from city life.

Exactly what we wanted it to be!

  • 5 of 5

Just the right mix of the old and new worlds. Sitting on the porch and gazing at the mountains, listening to the birds, playing some music and singing some songs. No rush. No politics. Just the two of us.

This sweet cabin gIves a rustic feel with a very clean, updated, detailed, warm and welcoming environment. Views were outstanding. Nice quiet and secluded. The bed was comfortable. The porch was a great place to sit and enjoy the view and birds chirping. The owner was super with communication and ease of the transaction. This cabin will be a must come back to for us!!

Stunning views of Paul's mountain

  • 5 of 5

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!

Go ahead and book this one!

  • 5 of 5

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.
