Why Owner/Property Manager chose Columbia
Cumberland County has approximately 11,000 residents. In 1790 there were 16,000. It is a very rural county with private farms and 16,000 acres of public land. We live here because we can run for two miles on a dirt road before we reach the paper box.
What makes this Cabin unique
Solitude, bird and wildlife habitat, very little traffic, these are gifts. The cabin and main house are apart of our nation's history. Hand hewed logs and beams, stone foundations, metal artifacts from the revolution and a library of books from previous owners dating to 1810 offer a unique opportunity to understand our past.

This getaway gave a real taste of what it was to have lived back in the early 1800's. Peace and quiet, quaint, rustic and tranquil. Life today is too hectic, busy and noisy. This is the perfect get away to restore your soul. It was a wonderful anniversary!
Exactly what we needed.
Had a beautiful weekend in peace and quiet. Was able to unplug and get back into nature. Our hosts were simply the best. We feel so thankful that we picked VueMont Cabin and look forward to further stays there in the future. Thank you Thank you.
Quiet and cozy
We spent the morning hiking in the Cumberland State Forest and the afternoon in Charlottesville checking out the shops. We highly recommend this location to anyone who is trying have a quiet romantic weekend.
Charming, rustic cabin in a beautiful setting.
Though the cabin and facilities are very basic this only added to the overall experience. The screened porch was great for our morning coffee and for a glass of wine to end the day. The stairs are steep and may not be suitable for everyone, but they led to cozy bedrooms with comfy beds and pillows and I loved the fresh flowers that Catherine had put in all the rooms. Do take everything you think you might need it's a long way on country roads to get forgotten items.
A wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary.
We we're looking for somewhere to stay off the beaten path. And we found it! It truly is a little piece of heaven if you love quiet and history. Great accomadtions and Luke and Catherine were great host gave us a tour and checked to make sure we were ok and if we needed anything that we might have forgotten. Loved watching the horses in the morning while enjoying my coffee.
If you ever need a change of pace and to unplug this is the perfect place. Loved it we will definitely be back.
Rustic does Right by Us
We really enjoyed the rustic cabin. We had to laugh that the stairs were a little too steep for our agility dogs to climb- I guess b/c the stairs weren't carpeted the dogs were a little unsteady on their feet. We loved the quiet! Nature was our only distraction. Luke and Catherine were super friendly, accommodating, and helpful. Fresh flowers were all around the cabin. Perfect long weekend getaway- we wished we had more time to spend at this quiet retreat from almost everything! If you visit in the spring- fall bring bug spray for battling the ticks and mosquitoes. Super enjoyable respite from our daily routine.
