Bedford cabin description

Nestled in a secluded dell, this log cabin boasts interior walls of polished cherry wood harvested from the nearby forest. A cathedral ceiling and meticulous craftsmanship welcome you to the interior of a jewel box. Sit in the spacious shade of a wrap-around porch and watch cloud shadows play across a facing mountain. Barbecue dinner on the rear brick patio. Listen to the songs of whippoorwills and katydids in the night, and see what the heavens look like miles away from light pollution.

This cabin affords privacy, but is only minutes away from the D-Day Memorial, a five-star restaurant, and cultural events sponsored by the Sedalia Center. In less than one hour, you can be kayaking or canoeing on the James River. Viewing Roanoke from the top of Mill Mountain. Strolling the campus of Liberty University.

This is a year-round facility. In winter, you can snuggle up in front of a wood fire and sneer at the wind fretting around the corners of this tight and well-insulated home. In spring, watch the dogwoods and redbuds bloom, and hike to the top of the nearby Peaks of Otter. Summer time, and the living is easy. Uninvited people and problems will have trouble finding you. In fall, the air is crisp, clear, cool. The leaves turn colors.

And a special someone will multiply your delight in the beauties of this setting.

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About: Tom Smedley, a veteran urban and regional planner, retired to Wheats Valley to raise apples, cattle, sheep, and children. A passionate outdoorsman, he enjoys welcoming people who share his appreciation for the Blue Ridge Mountains.

              Why Bedford:
              What can be achieved with local materials? Can you build a cabin with all the modern amenities from poplar logs and cherry lumber harvested and milled on site? If you have ever longed to build your own cabin in the woods, come see what a fulfilled dream looks like. Of course, you'll need to find a talented framing carpenter who can also do finish carpentry, then cabinetry.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Yes, you can see for miles and miles while sitting on the porch. However, this house is invisible from the road. A quick climb out of the dell, and you can hike for miles, all the way up to the Jefferson National Forest -- and beyond.
