Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: Barney & I both love rolling farmland & mountains. After spending several decades in California we left for a ten year circumnavigation by sailboat. We were ready to cross 'the pond' after 6 years aboard, when we discovered Lexington. We loved the farmlands, the universities, the seeming slower pace & drop back of 50 years. It is both lost in time & up-to-date. We love the juxtaposition.
Why the Owner Chose Buena Vista, VA, USA:
When we had the opportunity to purchase this farmland we did not hesitate. It was love at first sight. As an equestrian for several decades I had always dreamed of a country life, close to town, with hayfields & old log cabins. Barney was raised on farmland. The Shenandoah Valley is hard to beat. We stopped sailing & shipped the boat back to California where we visit her a few times per year. Our love is the land, the old barns & the people who come visit us instead of us continuing around the world visiting them.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I think our favorite thing to do on the land is to walk through the woods & up to the highest hill where there is a 360 degree view of the Blue Ridge & Allegheny Mountain ranges. Many guests say they have walked up early in the morning, some at sunset & sat with a bottle of wine, a loaf of bread & cheese & watched the sun rise and/or set. We agree, it is hard to beat. Sitting on the back deck of the cabin with your loved one, sipping a cool drink watching the sun either rise or set is a memory you will take with you. Listening to the rain on the old tin roof, the smell of a wood fire in the fireplace & the occasional howl of a distant coyote for its mate are the sensory 'candy' that we need to remind us to slow down & connect with ourselves & those we love. It reminds us of priorities & wraps us in the stories this old place could tell...
