Amazingly quiet cabin nestled in the National Forest. Sounds of a trout stream, large front porch, recent upgrades, charming soapstone stove, will make you take a deep breath. This is like being cradled in a park, with walks along the river running for miles. The house is not huge, but the cathedral ceiling, and nice layout live larger. There is deeded access to the river across the road. Local within 10-20 minutes include Crabtree Falls, Spy Rock, Montebello Trout Pond, Horseback riding, Blue Ridge Parkway, 30 minutes to Wintergreen and the 151 corridor, with breweries, wineries, and Piney River Rails to Trails, to mention a few. Also access to little known private hikes along mountain streams. This little valley has a variety of other vacation rentals along the river and is a hidden gem 1 hr from Charlottesville. For larger groups consider renting one or more of the several cabins right across the road, Deer Run or Bears Paw etc

About Scott Wiley
We bought this last fall and fell in love with the area. We have jobs as nurse and psychologist, and find the peace a quiet to be wonderful. We manage three other properties ( not on VRBO) so are familiar with guest needs and hosting. Our future plans include a hot tub and outdoor fire pit area, as well as an outbuilding bedroom/bath.
Scott Wiley purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Scott Wiley chose Montebello
We bought this place after staying in a weekend rental nearby, and happening upon this listing. The weather in summer is generally 10 degrees cooler than Charlottesville. The road in front of the house runs for miles along the river, but some days it is hard to make it off the front porch!
What makes this Cabin unique
The local area is rich in both history ( a century old flour mill up the road, an old log cabin across the road, and a quaint cemetery from before 1900 to name a few) and also close to Crabtree Falls, 151, the Parkway and hikes, swimming holes in the river, native trout streams within walking distance.

The Perfect Getaway
We loved everything about this property. We spent time on the river, walked the road with our dogs every morning and evening. Crabtree Falls are close and a great little excursion. Very quiet and private. The kitchen was very cute and had everything we needed to cook our own meals (that we brought) while we were there. It was fun to explore and will be returning next chance we get!
I had a great weekend in a great place.
Most definitely recommended.
Way more than we expected!
We really didn’t expect to find such an incredible little house! Beautifully decorated, in a serene area with the sounds of the river and everything you could need is inside- even had a dog bed for my dog to sleep on! Tons of breweries, wineries, and distilleries just about 30 min away, too. Hosts had left plenty of brochures and even handwritten suggestions of things to do in the area.
Great get away
My wife and I stayed in the cabin this last weekend and it was Great! The owner stocked the house with essentials that came in handy, because we are forgetful. It was kinda cold, which forced us to cuddle in front of the fire place which was nice! We went down to the creek which was really pretty. I would love to stay here again.
Perfect Quiet Getaway in Beautiful location!
Wonderful one bedroom home, very well appointed with everything I needed! The new bed was very comfortable. The front porch with big table and a glider were the perfect spot for me to write. Scott and Christy left all kinds of extras and left a note suggesting I feel free to use/eat whatever I wanted. The house is on a gorgeous quiet road that follows the north fork of the Tye river. Beautiful place to walk - very few cars. I definitely hope to return!!!
We had a wonderful time in this quaint, cozy cabin in the woods. Spent most of our time hiking (Crabtree Falls was exhilarating) around the area. Enjoyed evening hours on the porch enjoying the coolness of the beginning of autumn.
Exactly what we were looking for! Loved it.
This is a quiet setting, sounds of the river, miles of walks. Minutes from Crabtree Falls, the Blue Ridge Parkway, fish hatchery. Convenient to Wintergreen, and the 151 selection of restaurants and wineries are 30-40 minutes. Or just relax on the large front porch. It is always 10 or more degrees cooler than Charlottesville.
