A mix of rustic and modern close to family-friendly activities, fine and casual dining, peace and quiet. You’ll love the historic character, the coziness, the high ceilings, the light, the peacefulness. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets). Longer term or seasonal rentals are welcome, especially 30-night rentals.
A historic cabin in Washington, VA completely renovated and updated in 2015 to provide a retreat on the edge of the Shenandoah National Park (a trailhead allowing Park access is about 100 yards away). Less than two hours from Washington, DC, this house combines rustic charm in a 19th century hand-hewn log cabin with modern comforts, including a newly constructed great room and outdoor porch with panoramic views of woods and pond.
Our cabin is about equidistant to Washington and Sperryville (about 5 miles in each direction). It provides a great location to enjoy activities as simple as a walk in the woods, or as elaborate as a special dinner at The Inn at Little Washington. There are other restaurants and pubs in nearby Flint Hill, Sperryville, and Washington. The local villages, breweries, wineries, and farms have activities all year round. Or just relax in a tranquil environment.
The house consists of one master bedroom with a queen-sized bed, and a fully enclosed loft upstairs with a restored fireplace facade that sleeps four (in twin beds). The cabin has a sitting room with a working wood stove. There is a bathroom with large shower and underfloor heating, and another half bath. The great room is the centerpiece of the new renovation, with 18 foot vaulted ceilings and views of the woods and the pond on three sides. It is wrapped by an outdoor covered porch. A full kitchen with gas range, dishwasher, refrigerator and ample counter space invites cooking indoors, or grill outside on the porch. A washer and dryer are available, but note there is no microwave.
This house is very unique and has many original features. We have tried to include many amenities for your comfort and ours, although the cabin is best appreciated as a retreat from city life. And as beautiful as this space is, please note that an old cabin in the woods may not be for everyone. The loft bedroom is only accessible by a steep staircase. There is ample space for children and young adults to enjoy themselves and connect with nature. There is much wildlife, including deer, wild turkey, birds, bear and venomous and non-venomous reptiles, that visit the property and can often be seen from the house, or encountered up close. Please be prepared, and take special caution when exploring our frog-filled pond, and to supervise young children in this area. Internet data speed is limited (1-5mps, sufficient for email, web browsing text, and voice communications) due to the high cost of satellite data and there is no mobile phone coverage so your mobile phone use is restricted to whether your carrier allows coverage via wifi.
