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.

Absolutely charming...a quaint and cozy blend of historic and current!

The setting is lovely and peaceful. The home itself invites you in to rest and rejuvenate...friendly and welcoming in its decor and thoughtful touches. Everything was clean and well-maintained. We stayed here for Liberty Family weekend, and loved the quiet, natural surroundings. Although the drive to campus is about 30 minutes, we didn't mind a bit because the cabin and the area made it all very worthwhile! We can't wait to return!

The most amazing place we have ever stayed!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is

Charming, Quite, Clean, and Comfortable!

If you are lucky to meet the owners you would understand why this little cabin in the middle of nowhere has so much character and peace within it.

We surprised our father for his 70th birthday and he could not be happier!

Janis is the most generous host!

You will not regret staying here and just like us I'm sure you will be a little sad as you are departing.

Thanks a lot Janis for sharing your home with us.
