Property description

10% OFF STATED VRBO RATES DURING JANUARY.

Afton Log Cabin Get-Away is nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Afton, Nelson County, Virginia, just 10 miles from I-64 between Charlottesville and Waynesboro. Cozy, quaint, and secluded on 12 wooded acres, Afton Log Cabin was built in the late 1960s using Poplar trees growing on the property.

The first floor is a family room with bathroom and kitchenette. The bathroom has a toilet, sink, and shower. The kitchenette is fully equipped with dishes, utensils, pots/pans, and a stovetop Corning Ware coffee maker. Coffee, tea, creamer, and sugar are provided for guests' convenience. Paper products are supplied in the bathroom and kitchen.

The Loft has two sleeping areas with double and twin beds. The Blue Ridge Room on the second floor with queen bed is accessible from both the loft and a private entrance from the balcony and steps that lead to the yard. Lawn chairs are provided on the balcony for guests to relax and enjoy the beautiful vistas of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The wrap-around porch and large rear porch with picnic table and Adirondack chairs enhance the livability and enjoyment of the cabin. Hammock, swing, and basketball hoop extend the fun into the spacious yard surrounding the cabin.

There are satellite/Direct TV/VCR combinations in the family room (DVD), Loft (VHS) and Blue Ridge Room (DVD). Be sure to bring your favorite movie and some CDs so you can relax to your favorite melodies on the CD player in the Blue Ridge Room. If you enjoy snuggling up to a good book, take your pick from more than 50 books in the Loft.

Afton Log Cabin is only 15 minutes from Wintergreen Resort, 20 minutes from Waynesboro, and 25 minutes from Charlottesville, Staunton, and Lovingston, the county seat of Nelson County. Parks, hiking trails, restaurants, antique shops, churches, museums, and historical and cultural points of interest offer guests a wide range of things to do.

Whether you are looking for a place to get away from it all or a place from which to enjoy your favorite pastime, Afton Log Cabin will capture your heart.
