About the Property
Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-6)
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.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About: Tom Smedley, the Elder, veteran urban 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. Tom Smedley, the Younger, is living his dreams as well. After a career in technical writing, he landed his PhD in Communication Studies and now teaches online classes from his home office with a view of Overstreet Creek.
Why Bedford, VA, USA:
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.
