This authentic one bedroom rustic, modernized historic log cabin dates c.1900s & sits on 250 acres of rolling farmland in the Shenandoah Valley. It is fully outfitted with bed linens, 4 sleeping pillows, bath towels, family style toiletries, coffee, teas & a welcome gift from us - a bottle of wine. Outdoors you will find a propane gas grill, Adirondack chairs, a sweet sitting porch & a tranquil peaceful setting. This is not your hotel experience... this is Shenandoah Heaven!

The space
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 hay field 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. The cabin is approximately 100 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!

Perfect for 1-2 adults, no children, no pets.

Guest access
Guests have walking access to rest of 250 acre property. Across from the entry road is the Chessie Trail, a 7 mile walking/jogging trail along the Maury River wending through some pastures with cows. The Blue Ridge Pkway is 8 miles from the farm 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.

Other things to note
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.

We love the beautiful rolling farmlands of this county. The vistas are stunning, the mountain ranges soft & inviting & this farm is close to many places of interest. Guests will love the views from the hills, the modern day labyrinth on Mount Grace & the 360 degree view from there. It is awesome.

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. We love water, mountains, the natural environment, travel, good restaurants & fun coffee shops. I am totally intrigued with sacred geometry, design sculptures, facilitate workshops/retreats, have had & continue to have a colorful, incredible career & life path. Life is more than good!!

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.
