Brought to the farm from West VA, this 1775 log cabin has it all! Character, history, modern amenities, brick fireplace & fully furnished sitting on a knoll in complete wooded privacy only 4 miles from charming Lexington. Great 360 degree vista walks on 250 acres. Modern day labyrinth. Shenandoah Valley magic!!

The space

This cabin is a breath of fresh air from the busyness of our hectic day-to-day lives. It is made of hand hewn logs of maple, oak & chestnut brought to the farm from W.VA, reassembled with a 2nd floor bedroom, large first floor bathroom with a antique pedestal tub, a screened in back porch & a kitchenette. The cabin sits on a knoll off a private drive surrounded by quiet & dark on 250 acres of farmland. You will want/need to be okay with being by yourself & the dark of a country night. Located only 4 miles to heart of downtown Lexington with an excellent selection of restaurants, coffee shops, gift shops etc & 3 miles to several chain restaurants.

Guest access

Guests are invited to walk on the fire roads & walking paths on the 250 acres. There are some breath taking panoramic views, a modern day labyrinth & much wildlife to enjoy. Our farm is above the confluence of the South & the Maury Rivers. Across from the entry road to cabin is an access to the 7 mile walking/jogging trail between Lexington & Buena Vista. The cabin is close to many attractions, an AT trail head, the Blue Ridge Pkwy, VA Horse Ctr, Natural Bridge plus many others. We ask guests walking the property to be respectful of guests in the other cabins. Be sure you leave plenty of daylight for your return trip & take a good flashlight.

Interaction with guests

This cabin is a 'self catering' space. Our guests do not see us unless they request meeting us. We honor the privacy & quietude that our guests desire. The only person that may be seen working on the farm is Russell mowing on specific days or the gal that cleans the cabins on specific days. If you are very lucky you might get to watch any one of the 4 hay fields being harvested. There is nothing like a freshly harvested hay field with the huge circular bales still in the field.

Other things to note

NOTE: 12% taxes are included in the quoted pricing so this is a discounted rate from our website. Add'l guests will be an add'l charge.
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.

This cabin was spot on for what we were hoping to find for our anniversary trip as well as our first trip to Lexington. It is incredibly hard to find a cabin that comes with the solitude that Antonia's does but that also includes the modern amenities such as A/C, plumbing, and electricity. The furnishings are beautiful and you really feel like you are living the picturesque lifestyle we see in so many movies and shows these days. I've got to say though, the part I think my wife and I enjoyed the most was the amazing view from the hilltop that comes with the property that it sits on that the owners are so generous to give access to. If you're trying to decide between this rental or another, I really really would encourage you to give this one a shot because we are very glad that we did.

Eric, I can't thank you enough for your kind words & I am so happy that you really enjoyed your stay here. That c.1775 cabin is truly a 'slice of history', actually having been moved from what is now called West Virginia! The State of Grace hilltop has been years in the creation & definitely has an awesome view surrounding the modern day labyrinth. I notice in your profile photo, a camera around your neck :) If you took any photos that you think we would like & are willing to share them, we'd be delighted! Looking forward to having you return again for another country experience. Thank you for choosing our place for your anniversary celebration!

If you want a place to get away and relax, this is the place.I was looking for a quiet place to get away from normal life and that's what I got. I highly recommend it if you just need a break from it all.

Shaun, We are so happy to read that your time here was exactly what you wanted & needed. You know where we are so the next time you feel that inner tug for a natural environment quiet immersion, come on back!

My husband and I just finished a week's stay in the cabin and loved it! We were in the area for a motorcycle rally and it was wonderful to have quiet place to retreat to at the end of the day. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed. Bed was super comfortable and we enjoyed turning off the AC at night to hear the night noises as we fell asleep. It is a great place to kick back, unplug and relax. Front porch was perfect for enjoying our morning coffee or nightcap. There was lots of nature to enjoy--rabbits, deer and many different bird species. We took advantage of a clear night to walk up to the hayfield for some star (and bat) watching. And, one early morning we hiked up the hill to The State of Grace which should not be missed. There is an unmistakable energy as well as profound peace as you enjoy Antonia's sculptures and gaze at the 360* view. We did not meet Antonia during our stay but our friend, Rob, did and told us she was warm and welcoming. We would definitely rent the Homesteader's Cabin again.

Response from Antonia:
Thank you, Jane :) We really appreciate your lovely words & are very happy to read that your time here was all that you had hoped. I did get to meet your friend. He was delighted to be joining you & that you had brought a bike for him to go to the motorcycle rally. Yes, there is a palpable energy on the hilltop!! So excited that you could feel it. Thank you for adding your energy to it :) Blessings, A

The log cabin was a wonderful experience. We always stayed in hotels on vacation. So we decided to try something different. The cabin was so cool. We loved the peice and quiet. Very relaxing and we enjoyed the views of the mountains. Also would like to think the owner for coming out and trimming the branches back so the satellite would work. Had a great time. Thanks again

Response from Antonia:
We are so happy that you loved your stay. That cabin sure has complete privacy on its own road. Thank you for letting us know that the signal was not coming in for the satellite. A few branches made it easy. We do not know unless a guest tells us. Again, thank you for your understanding & patience while that was taken care of. Blessings, Antonia

DARK!!! Bring extra watt light bulbs! Be prepared that this is a remote cabin without a working TV or radio. Bring paper plates and silverware if you go. The air was excellent but that is about IT!! I could not see to do my hair in the bathroom, had to bring a desk lamp from upstairs to hang on the light in the bathroom so I could see! AND I am not blind! Needs a GOOD cleaning and for 150.00 a night, not a bargain.

Response from Antonia:
Oh my gosh! I don't know what to say except that I apologize for your experience. We have never in 14 years had a review like this or we could not keep our 5 star rating, SuperHost status & that cabin as our most popular! 1) Lighting? The cabin is a modernized c.1775 cabin. They are not fitted with lots of windows though we certainly do not want you to be challenged seeing. We will look to see where we can add a track light 2) Regarding the comments on bringing paper plates etc... totally confused by this since we have the cabin fully outfitted with glass plates, bowls, serving platters, glasses & good silverware, pots & pans. 3) Also family style toiletries 4) Confused by lack of light in bathroom. There are 3 lights & a window 5) The listing does not state that there is wi-fi. Never has been wifi on that side of the farm tho there is usually good cell phone connection. 6) The TV worked for the last guest so I appreciate knowing that something needs to be checked. In all fairness a simple phone call to us & some of these concerns could have been addressed. We would like to have known that you had left the cabin after the first night. 7) The listing clearly states that guests need to be comfortable with the dark & the country setting. This is not suburbia & we prefer to 'keep the country in the country' 8) There is no radio reception due to the trees & the knoll the cabin sits upon. The boombox is for the CD collection we provide. 8) We do not give the address of the cabin until you check in to protect guests. The listing says the farm is 4 miles from downtown Lexington. We are right on the division line of Lexington & BV 9) Dirty windows? They were all thoroughly cleaned last month. The cabin is in the country & on a dirt road. We cannot really do anything more than what we do. The road was just graded only hours before your arrival. Perhaps that was the culprit? 10) Very disappointed to read that this overly outfitted & fully furnished small home with quality furniture, some country antiques, super comfortable bed & goose down sofa was not considered a value to you 11) I have reviewed our listing, its descriptions & all the photographs & have found it to be very accurate. Deep apologies, Richard, for your experience here. Your comments have been duly noted & after the current guests leave next week we will certainly look at the TV reception, lighting etc. Many Blessings, Antonia

Cute, quiet cabin in the woods that makes you feel like you're roughing it but you're still within a 10 minute drive back to town and all there is to do in Lexington. We really enjoyed our weekend in Lexington - took a carriage tour in town, visited the Natural Bridge, hiked Big House Mountain Trail, tasted a few beers at Devil's Backbone (all were good!), and even ventured down to the Blue Ridge Parkway for a scenic drive. Haywood's and Southern Inn in town were really good. Returning to the cabin in the evenings felt like we were returning home. The bed offered a super comfortable restful night of sleep. The kitchen space was perfect for the two of us to make up breakfasts in the mornings. Hope to return one day to check off the list of things we didn't get to do during this trip.

Thank you, Amanda :) That c.1775 cabin is truly a slice of Shenandoah history. Soo happy to read that you loved your time there. Do come back & stay with us again. It sounds like you got to see quite a bit of the Lexington area. Lots more here too.

Very nice.

Response from Antonia:
Thank you for your lovely 'private' feedback. So happy that you enjoyed your stay. I am disappointed that you mentioned dust. We do our best. There were guests that checked out a couple hours before you arrived. I can't believe the dust had time to settle! We are on open land with dirt roads & it is a log cabin thus not air-tight.. We appreciate the heads up & will do our best to pay particular attention to that. Thank you.

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!!
