About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 3 full baths, Twin Daybeds in loft and basement, Sleeps 10

The 1/2 mi. somewhat rocky drive often provides excellent wildlife viewing and may lead you a million miles from Monday. When you reach the home, parking is no problem (plenty of space). As you enter, the custom cedar is the most noticeable feature. The living area to the right has comfortable seating and a HD flat screen TV. The dining area is open to both the kitchen and living areas. The table seats 8 or 10 good friends with an additional 3 counter seats. The fully equipped kitchen has lots of counter space, coffee and spices for home cooked meals. The master bedroom has a 32 inch TV and a king bed, . Upstairs there is a twin bedroom with trundle and another with a queen bed .The loft has a daybed and large game table with leather chairs..The basement has a pool table, foosball, and a big screen TV with a DVD player and DISH TV
Outside there is a hot tub on one of the decks with rockers provided for the usually excellent stargazing. In the yard the fire pit has some wood provided.

Big recent NEWS from Spring Creek Cabin:
!, We now have high speed internet and WiFi
2, The High Bridge on High Bridge Trail State Park is open. (all 34 miles)
3. A branch of the Museam of the Confederacy has opened in Appromattox.
4. Free long distance phone service is now available.

Shopping/Churches: The area has many of the national chains, including most restaurants, Wal Mart, and Lowes within 20 miles. The big store in town is Green Front Furniture in Farmville which occupies 12 huge warehouses with upscale items from around the world. Numerous antique and flea markets dot the area and an auction or estate sale occurs almost every weekend. Lynchburg is about 40 miles to the West and Richmond is about 70 miles to the East.

There is a large Amish population in the area and churches of most denominations are close by. The biggest of them being the Thomas Road Baptist in Lynchburg..

Nature: Deer and turkeys are plentiful and often seen from the decks or on the driveway. Rabbits and squirrels are also in the area. Birds from the occasional eagle or hawk to sparrows can be seen. Much more rare are bear and fox sightings.
The home is quiet inside and outside except for the sounds of nature.

The night sky is a treat for city dwellers. No man made lights can be seen from the rear deck and our own spiral galaxy, the Milky Way, is often visible as a faint band of light across the sky.

The 34 Mile High Bridge Trail is open to horses, walkers and non motorized bikes. It follows the old Norfolk & Western rail route through Farmville and over the Appomattox River as part of the rails to trails program. The trail's Western end is in Pamplin VA about 3 miles from the house. An easy horse ride on marked roads.

Relaxation: The comfortable beds are nice but the jetted tubs and the outdoor hot tub can help even the most stressed traveler. Even in the depths of winter it is worth a short sprint across the rear deck to experience the bubbles and water of the 98-104 degree jets.(easily adjusted to your liking)
A game of pool,foosball, cornhole, a video game, or a movie ( DVD player available) on the big screen is also available'

If quiet is your preference this is the spot for you. The nearest neighbor is about 1/2 mile away. Besides the crickets, about all you can hear is the occasional faint rooster or cow..

The new DISH HOPPER TV system allow you to watch any primetime show for the last 8 days. If you wait one day there is a selection that will eliminate the commercials for you.

The Farmville/ Appomattox area can provide a secluded,quiet, and restful experience if that is your wish. However great antiquing and furniture shopping by the acre is available at Green Front Furniture. Longwood University and Hampden Sydney College provide many events. athletically and otherwise.Appomattox Court House where our civil war ended, is the center of this history rich area. The newly opened Musem of the Confedracy is now open in Appomattox.

Wildlife is abundant from bears to birds.

The rural location provides excellent stargazing. The more active can walk or ride through the rough trails of the 100 A. property at their own risk, but the Western end of the New 34 mi. High Bridge Trail is just minutes away. The High Bridge of High Bridge Trail State Park opened to the public in early April 2012.

The newest additions include a hammock, horseshoes, cornhole and WiFi for those of a more leisurely bent.

Other Activities: The new Branch of The musem of the Confederacy opened in Appomattox in April of 2012.

Many nearby state parks provide hiking, boatong, fishing and picnicing oppertunities.

Golf: The Manor golf course in Farmville is highly rated and open to the public

Ski: The Wintergreen resort/ski area is a bit over 60 miles from the cabin and while it is not the Rockies, it can provide a fun day trip for a family.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1830

About the owner: I am retired and spend time improving the cabin and surrounding property.Our plan is to move there eventually though our condo requires considerably less upkeep.

Why the Owner Chose Pamplin, VA, USA:
The land has been in my family since before the civil war and my grandparents home (over 100 years old) on the property is being rehabed and may eventually house additional rental beds.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Renters seem to find a variety of things to enjoy about the place. I put considerable sweat equity into building the cabin and am very biased so perhaps reading the reviews may give you a more balanced view.
