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!!
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.
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 farm is a retreat space encouraging folks to 'unplug' & reconnect with themselves & the natural environment. We have no parties or groups of people on this side of the farm & ask guests to keep music, loud noise (ie none :) & outdoor lights to a minimum. All dogs must be on leashes while out on our land. Thank you for complying. All smoking is to be outdoors & disposed of properly so as to protect the property from forest fires. This cabin is child suitable & dog friendly. Maximum 2 cars for this cabin. No ATVs. ABSOLUTELY NO CAMPFIRES ARE PERMITTED on the property.

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!!
