About The Owner

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1968

Why The Owner chose Afton

In the 1960s, we visited Nelson County and fell in love with the beautiful mountains and picturesque countryside, the farms, ponds, and people. Not long after, we bought property in Afton and built a log cabin using the Poplar trees growing on the property.

Beautiful, relaxing mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spend three wonderful nights at this location. It was a nice secluded cabin on 12 acres. Very peaceful and relaxing time to enjoy morning coffee and afternoon wine. Jeanie was great to work with and had the cabin in pristine condition upon our arrival. The cabin was located in a great spot close to several wineries and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We attended a great outdoor concert at Veritas Vineyard and had a very short trip back to the cabin. The furnishings were quite comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning very soon. Thanks again Jeanie for everything!!!!

If you are looking for a total get away, this is the place to go! Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, this cabin is private and yet close to vineyards, breweries, restaurants and fantastic hikes. Our host Jeanie, was attentive to our needs and quick to help as needed.

Owner's Response: Janet and her family were guests I hope will return again and again. They took great care of the cabin and property. Lightening had struck the week before, resulting in a few problems we worked together to resolve. They were attentive, patient, and understanding.

Solitude With Views of The Mountains

  • 4 of 5

Charming little cabin nestled with views of the mountains with all the conveniences of home. In my opinion the best part of the cabin is the porch views of the mountain and watching the deer and birds first thing in the morning with a cup of coffee and seeing the stars at night with a glass of wine. Loved our stay! It was perfect for a get away from the city life and escaping the hustle and bustle of every day! Exactly what the doctor ordered. Thank you Jeanie for the opportunity in allowing us to enjoy our anniversary in your tiny piece of heaven on earth.
