Why BEA chose Central Virginia

Having a total of 66 acres of woods and privacy is what inspired us to build Deer Ridge.

Besides being totally secluded, it is only minutes to Monticello, Ashlawn/Highland, Jefferson, Blenheim and Trump Wineries and 15 minutes to Charlottesville.

What makes this cabin unique

Careful planning has gone into every aspect of it's construction, from the actual setting of the cabin for the sunny kitchen/back porch mornings to the viewing of the setting sun from the front porch. Each stone in the chimney and fireplace have been handpicked, along with the sawmill cut boards on the walls to the individually wooden hand-pegged red oak floors. Rick and I have worked for the past to 2 years in order to bring Deer Ridge to life and are currently offering it for others to enjoy.

Located only minutes from local major Historic Sites, 3 Wineries and only 15 minutes to Charlottesville.

Perfect for a quick getaway, lodging for members of a wedding party for those celebrating at nearby Ash Lawn/Highland, a honeymoon/marriage retreat or just for a quiet family vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Bea, Mike and I love your cabin! We will be back! It has been a quiet, calm and relaxing weekend. There is so much to do and see here. We only wish we had more time. See you Soon!

Thank you!

Quaint, clean, private cabin. Close to Charlottesville

  • 5 of 5

Loved this charming cabin! Very clean and had everything we needed. Bea, the owner was great and even welcomed us with a plate of homemade brownies. It was a short drive to downtown Charlottesville and had several wineries nearby. We really enjoyed our stay!

Beautiful setting in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Deer Ridge Cabin and are already planning our next visit this fall! The location was perfect to enjoy all that the Charlottesville area has to offer, whether it be the downtown area, the wineries or nearby Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive. Bea met us at the cabin with eggs and cranberry bread and helped us settle in. The cabin is immaculately clean and has everything you need for a cozy stay. Bea offered us advice on the area and was close by in case we needed anything. We loved exploring the area during the day and coming "home" to the cabin for a quiet evening on the porch. Hoping to come back this fall to enjoy the foliage! Thanks again!

Cute, cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was the most adorable, cozy cottage in the woods! Even though it is small, there were 4 of us ladies and we still had plenty of space, especially if you include the porches and outdoor space. Loved the glider gazebo. BEA was wonderful! We called to let BEA know we were 15 minutes away and she was waiting for us on the front porch when we arrived. She showed us around and even left a sweet surprise in the refridgerator because she knew we were celebrating a milestone birthday. The kitchen was well stocked. Everything was clean. It has a country, all season theme with lots of nick-nack decorations everywhere. Our recommendations are to reduce the nick-nacks, replace the one chair in the sitting room as it over worn and add more lighting in the sitting room area. We would definitely recommend it and are planning on returning.

Our cabin is only 7 miles from Thomas Jefferson's beloved Monticello, 5 miles from James Monroe's Ashlawn/Highland home. Wineries within this 7 mile radius include Jefferson, Blenheim (Dave Matthews) and Trump . Let's not forget about Carter Mountain Orchard, The Michie Tavern and the General Store. So much to do within a 10 mile spread from Deer Ridge Cabin.
