This authentic one bedroom rustic, historic log cabin dates from early 1900s & sits on 250 acres of rolling farmland in the Shenandoah Valley. It is fully outfitted with coffee, teas & a welcome gift from us - a bottle of wine. A gas grill, Adirondack chairs & a sweet sitting porch. Shenandoah Heaven!
Only 4 miles from Lexington, Washington & Lee & VMI, this cozy 'love nest' is the perfect place to reconnect with self, partner & the natural environment. Spa robes, family style toiletries, very comfortable bed with quality bedding await you.
A hayfield sits to the west, a forested sinkhole to the east & an acre of mown meadow to the south. 360 degree views of both mountain ranges from walks on farm. Perfect for 1-2 adults, no children, no pets. The cabin is approximately 300 yards from the next cabin. There are very few lights on the farm making the Milky Way & many stars very visible. Fire flies in the summer are amazing!
Guests have walking access to rest of 250 acre property. Across from the entry road is a 7 mile walking/jogging trail along the Maury River & through some pastures with cows. The Blue Ridge Pkway is 8 miles as is an Appalachian Trailhead. Natural Bridge, one of the first seven wonders on the north American continent, is only a short drive.
It is requested that guests in the other cabins(4) are not disturbed. There is no hunting by guests on this property. No ATVs/loud vehicles are permitted. Guests should be comfortable with quiet & dark country land.
This cabin is a self catering space. We have no interaction with guests unless requested. We honor your desire for quiet & privacy. You may see or hear the mower on some days or see general maintenance being handled. If you are lucky to be here when the hayfields are being harvested you are in for a treat! The time here is private. We are always available should there be a need.
NOTE: 12% taxes are included in the quoted pricing making this a discounted rate from our website listing. Guests need to be comfortable with the dark & the country. One can often see the Milky Way without interference from city lights! We do our best to be good country neighbors & 'keep the country in the country' by asking that all outdoor lights be turned off at night. Bring a good flashlight & comfy shoes. The cabin is supplied with 'starter' coffee, teas, cocoa, condiments, dish soap, paper towels & toilet paper etc. If you need more than we provide you will find a grocery store only a few miles from the cabin. We supply 2 towels for each person for a 2-3 day stay. Our gift to you is a bottle of wine. If you do not wish to have one please let us know beforehand. We know that everyone does not drink alcohol & might prefer to not have it around. Fishing; kayak livery; horse trail rides; walking trails all close by.
This farm is a retreat space encouraging folks to 'unplug' & reconnect with themselves & the natural environment. We have no parties on this side of the farm & ask guests to keep music, loud noise indoors & outdoor lights out completely before retiring. No pets or children in this cabin. Smoking is outdoors only & disposed of properly as to prevent fires. Maximum 2 cars for this rental. ABSOLUTELY NO CAMPFIRES ANYWHERE. Thank you. IMPORTANT: Please have a terrific time & come back soon!
I am currently a co-owner/co-operator of a vacation cabin & event facility on 250 acres in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. It is amazingly beautiful here. My husband & I moved here after several decades in Sausalito/Sebastopol CA & 6 yrs sailing & living aboard our deep sea sailing vessel. I love water, mountains, the natural environment, travel, good restaurants & fun coffee shops. I am totally intrigued with sacred geometry, design sculptures, facilitate workshops, have had & continue to have a colorful, incredible career & life path. Life is more than good!!
