Property description

This cabin is available all year! My beautiful log cabin in the country has all the amenities of home. It's the perfect place to get away and enjoy nature while staying in elegant and spacious accommodations. This is a special place when you need to kick back and relax! Antiques are set against old woodwork from a previous cabin on the site. The large gas log fireplace is a central feature of the great room. Curl up and enjoy an evening of reading, selecting from the nice collection of books. Or play any of the many board games provided. Grill on charcoal or gas. Enjoy your barbecue on the large back porch, or watch a beautiful sunset from the swing on the front porch.
Virginia Log Cabin is excellent for one or two couples, or a family, to enjoy while visiting this unique area of Virginia. Call me! any time! Thanks, Tom Bradshaw 540 463 2521

Log cabin in the country: My cabin was built for use as a vacation rental and has only been used that way. I have enjoyed the vacation rental business and the people who come to relax in the country. Many enjoyable times have been spent visiting with guests at the cabin. The caboose has been added to accommodate larger groups as well as to provide for individual rentals. There may be guests in the caboose during your visit. This usually does not present a problem as the caboose is on the property but separated from the cabin area by plantings Some guests rent both accomodations for larger groups.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: I have lived near here in a 200 year old house since 1976. I bought the land for the cabin in 1982 and finally built the cabin in the spring of 1991. It has always been a vacation rental. My wife Faye and I have enjoyed meeting many of our guests over the 20 years and continue to do so. We have another vacation house in Lexington and have recently completed restoring the 1926 caboose.

Why the Owner Chose Natural Bridge:
We had spent enjoyable trips to Williamsburg and stayed in a vacation rental house in the restored area and thought that the idea of a vacation rental house in the country might be something that others would enjoy. It was not until the internet got into general usage is 1998 that the idea really became viable.
