Stanardsville cabin description

Discover Blue Vistas Cabin! This Romantic Mountain Hideaway is perched high on a hillside with breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our Cabin is set up like a duplex with two units - East and West. The parking area is shared and each unit features its own private hot tub, screened porch, private entrance and amenities. Located on 14 acres of privately owned property, you'll delight in Star Gazing from your Private Hot Tub and waking each morning to the Natural Beauty of the Blue Ridge! Only 2 minutes from Shenandoah National Park and the Swift Run Gap Entrance to Virginia's Skyline Drive.

Inside you'll find all the comforts of home - plush towels and robes in the bathroom and quality bedding on top notch mattresses to assure a wonderful nights sleep. You'll need it - because there is so much to do and see. We are a short drive from dozens of wonderful Virginia Wineries, only minutes from Shenandoah National Park, home of Skyline Drive where you'll be amazed by the hundreds of hikes to choose from - waterfalls to peaks and vistas - it's all just a few miles from your door. We provide all the hiking guides for the Park, picnic basket and backpack too.

If History is your passion, this is the perfect home base for visiting Monticello, Montpelier and several nearby Civil War sites and Battlefields.

We invite you to unwind, relax, get back to nature, and reconnect with one another in our beautiful mountain hideaway.

Please click on our WEBSITE LINK below to see our always up to date availability calendar for the East and West units or make an online reservation. Each unit sleeps two adults. This property is not suitable for pets or children. We look forward to sharing the beauty of the Blue Ridge with you!

                          Year Purchased: 1999

                          About: Alun and Norma are retired professionals who now have a life of pottery, gardens, grand children and the rental of mountain cottages and homes they have restored. Alun located in the Blue Ridge Mountains 27 years ago when he retired from being a USCG Lic. Captain. Norma joined Alun here in the mountains in 1994 after a background in social services, education and psychology. She takes particular pride in furnishing and decorating our properties for the maximum enjoyment of our guests.

                          Why Stanardsville:
                          We had driven by this property for many years on the two mile route between Blue Ridge Pottery, our business and home. Located on an outcrop of Greenstone, a precursor to Jade, this property looks all the way up Lydia Valley to Skyline Drive. In addition to the outcropping of massive igneous rock this property has active springs, fish filled ponds, and views of the Blue Ridge and Hightop Mountain. When a For Sale sign was posted we bought it the same day. Two years of hard work transformed it from an abandoned building to a modern, comfortable accommodation with two rental units - East and West.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          Some properties have beautiful views of the Blue Ridge, few are nestled high in a mountain valley surrounded by woods, springs and ponds, and are literally a part of the mountains. This mountain hill farm has become a comfy place to use as a base camp, it is ideally located on Rt. 33 and only one mile from the entrance to Shenandoah National Park. Four Presidential homes, 25 wineries, numerous battlefields, and all the outdoors of the National Park are within a one hour driving radius.
