Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Mark and Candice Smith. Mark, originally from Virginia Beach, has a construction company that specializes in building these log cabins, as well as all other types of restoration, remodeling, and new construction. Candice, originally from South Africa, has worked in the hospitality industry for ten years. She trained in England, and worked on luxury charter yachts throughout the Mediterranean, Caribbean, and the US. Both Mark and Candice are actively involved on Meadowview Farm, where they raise natural lamb, vegetables, and free range chickens, for eggs.

Why the Owner Chose Rice, VA, USA:
We built this log cabin in 2008, so everything is in fantastic condition. We love the area, being only minutes from Farmville, and 45 minutes from Richmond and Lynchburg. Charlottesville is 1 hour 20 minutes and Virginia Beach is 3 hours away. The Heart of Virginia is the place to be.
