About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2

A candidate for Architectural Digest, this delightful and historic log cabin offers charming period details, privacy and breath-taking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Jefferson log cabin is your perfect host. The cabin is 15 minutes from Charlottesville and the University of Virginia. There is a second cabin, the Madison, that is attached by a breezeway to the Jefferson which can accommodate a larger group. The gardens were featured in the historic Albemarle county garden tour in 2010.

Stunning and cozy escape in Charlottesville

  • 5 of 5

Byrd was great - communicative, sweet, etc! Rented both cabins for two couples for a wedding nearby and it was the perfect space for a special rural getaway. Jefferson achieves that rare balance of rustic design while also feeling really high end and luxurious. (Incredible bedding, bathroom, amenities). A truly quiet space where you can wake up to cows mooing. Next time we're in Charlottesville, we will be trying to get a reservation here ASAP. (In fact, my try to go back to Charlottesville just to stay here!).

Jefferson Log Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We had a great weekend get away. The cabin was lovely, small one room with a little inside ceramic wood burning stove, plenty of wood available. We wished the windows were bigger for the view of the hills was fantastic and my husband saw a huge buck outside our window in the early morning. We took long walks around the cabin and drove out to the Shenandoah valley which is beautiful, many trails and overlooks. The property owners live nearby and were available for questions/tips for area restaurants.

Excellent getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is just as advertised - clean, tidy, close to town yet away from it all. Couple of nice surprises, with owner providing coffee and refreshments at arrival. We wouldn't change a thing!

We loved the cabin. The bed was so comfortable and the wood burning stove and views were highlights for us. We plan to visit again. Thank-you.

Great, Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a very enjoyable and relaxing anniversary in the one room cabin. It was nice to get away and only hear the sounds of nature. Close enough to drive to Charlottesville or the Blue Ridge Parkway. Very highly recommended.
