Gentle beauty

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed our third stay at Overlook Cabin. We keep returning because it's a place of gentle beauty: a tastefully restored old chestnut-log cabin atop a quiet ridge with soaring views from the front porch. The cabin is well-equipped and well-furnished. The owner is helpful but unobtrusive. There are rustic trails to wander right from the cabin if you don't feel like going far from your abode. Or if you are so inclined (as we have been on some of our stays), you can enjoy longer, more ambitious hikes beginning with drives to the Blue Ridge Parkway, a nearby nature preserve, or somewhat more distant trailheads for portions of the Appalachian Trail. The spacious kitchen in the cabin has made it easy to prepare all of our meals there.

Incredible view, unique house, wonderful location, awesome amenities

  • 5 of 5

Coming from Charlotte, NC, this was the perfect place for us to meet up with our friends from the DC Area. We loved just sitting on the front porch enjoying the amazing view. The property includes some well marked trails for some hikes. Jill also helped us plan a longer hike at Bottom Creek... She was so helpful with everything! Because this very old house was actually moved and rebuilt in this location, the kitchen and bathrooms have very updated amenities. However, the historical log cabin feel has been preserved through the decor. The breeze is great... We even made a fire in July! Although there is a Bistro close by, we were glad we brought food for all our meals so we didn't have to drive up and down the mountain too many times...wish we had a 4WD for that :) Great weekend!!

Excellent Everything!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the absolute best properties we have rented. Great cabin, beautiful view, nice network of trails. We only wish we had more time to spend here. Jill and Jim were very accommodating and are one of the main reasons that we rate this property 5 stars. Highly recommended!

Comfy rustic.

This cabin was a good combination of rustic ambiance and modern amenities. The view was outstanding, one of the best I've ever experienced. A peaceful and quiet place for reflection and relaxation.

Overlook is Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

Overlook Cabin is outstanding in its expansive view of the valley overlooking Roanoke, Virginia and in its rustic cabin charm and amenities. Wow, a fireplace in the living room and the bedroom -- what could be better? Oh yes.. the patio stone fireplace! Staying here is an awesome respite from normal, modern life and is difficult to leave. This is the finest cabin experience I've had to date.

Pictures do not do this Heaven justice!

  • 5 of 5

Overlook Cabin is the perfect mix of luxury and rustic! Jill and Jim have done a beautiful job of ensuring that you enjoy a quiet, charming cabin, while providing the modern luxuries. The cabin is beautifully decorated and the beds are incredibly comfortable! The hiking trails are well-marked and color coordinated (thanks to Jill's map!) so that is is nearly impossible to get lost. The views of the Valley are breathtaking. We will definitely be back!

Word of advice that others may have mentioned: It's helpful to have an SUV -- the driveway and the Mountain are pretty steep! Drive slowly.
