About the Property

2 Bedroom Log Cabin 3 Miles from Blue Ridge Parkway



Welcome to Peak-a-View Cabin on the slopes of Sharp Top Mountain of the Peaks of Otter, 10 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Peaks of Otter Visitor Center, Lodge and Restaurant.

Our cabin is situated in a clearing on five acres of otherwise wooded land, surrounded by the natural world, yet offering all the comforts of home.

The front porch of our cabin is the front row in a theater of nature. Take a seat and wait for the wildlife to pass by, and occasionally stop by for a visit. Birds – Hawks, owls, pileated woodpeckers, bluebirds, spring warblers, and wild turkeys are just a small sampling of the avian visitors. Foxes, squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks, deer, and the occasional black bear are often guest stars in the spectacular show. You don’t need a ticket, just a pair of binoculars, a bit of patience, and perhaps a glass of wine to sharpen the senses. You can also take a walk in the woods on our maintained trails, and visit the nearby creek which runs cold and clear from the mountains.

Inside our lovely, cozy cabin you will find attractions of a more domestic sort: A stone fireplace with wood and kindling always stocked, central air conditioning and heating, front-loading washer and dryer, Satellite HDTV, wireless internet, dishwasher, electric range and oven, microwave, coffee makers, stereo cd player, two bedrooms each with queen sized beds (sheets and linens provided), all rooms furnished for socializing, reading, or relaxing. We allow dogs, up to 40 pounds, and you will find a jar of treats waiting inside the front door to help make your pet feel at home as well.

Our cabin is a home away from home for us, and we hope that once you visit, you will feel the same. It is close enough to the town of Bedford (6 miles) for shopping and dining, but far enough away that you will have your own quiet escape, serenity, and privacy. We have tried to provide all the conveniences to make you comfortable, but all the peace and solitude you need to relax and reset.

All potential guests MUST also speak to us by phone before booking. We will answer any questions about our home.

*please pick up after your dog or a fee for clean-up will be billed
*our neighbors welcome our guests to enjoy their orchard and flowers. Please respect their privacy
