Built in 1963, this newly renovated hunting cabin is ready for a leisurely weekend or a longer stay. The second of two vacation homes on the property (VRBO#374492), this little gem is tucked away in a private corner of a 175 acre farm yet accessible to many amenities and local attractions.
It offers WD, DW, MW, WiFi, DVD/TV, AC, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, all linens for bed, bath, kitchen, and pool, gas grill, fire pit and access to a large, private saltwater pool. Walking trails onsite and much, much more included. Everything in this cabin on one floor and the open floor plan with no steps for entry along with a handicapped accessible shower is in the master bath, invites guests who have mobility challenges.
There is a deck leading from the dining room with a table and chairs for outdoor eating. This is a good spot for early morning coffee while nature is waking up. The morning sounds are beautiful. A bonus to this property is a large converted tractor shed that is now a convenient, clean and useful space for private parties, dining out, and other special small events. We now refer to it as the Pavilion!
The kitchen is fully equipped for most of your cooking and what is not there can, most likely, easily be added by the owners. Just ask. There is enough counter space for more than one cook! And, there is a small cozy breakfast nook adjacent to the kitchen for quick meals or feeding the children. You will find the highchair in there.
The Master Bedroom is just off the living area and includes a large bath and closet. It has a queen size bed.
The other two bedrooms are equal in size, each with a double or full bed and sharing an additional bath in the hallway between that includes a shower and bathtub.
There is also a full size sleep sofa in the living area that can accommodate two adults.
A portable crib (Pack N' Play) is available for sleeping, along with a high chair and booster seat for little eaters.
After a long day of "vacationing" you may enjoy roasting marshmallows around in the fire pit out front and to the side slightly. Hopefully it will be a starry night to finish off the evening.

This property offers a very private location while not so remote that one cannot enjoy the wonderful attractions in the Central Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
A day trip will allow you to visit the homes of 5 US Presidents (Washington, Jefferson, Monroe, Madison, and Wilson). You can also visit multiple Civil War attractions and battlefields as this was the "breadbasket" of the Confederacy. There are many stories to be told, museums to see, and cemeteries to visit!
You may want to explore some of the geological phenomenon in the area, like Natural Bridge and Luray and Grand Caverns (the deepest on the East Coast), Grand Caverns (the oldest on the East Coast) or Luray (the most well-known worldwide). There are others, but these are a good start.
A day antiquing at the many large and small venues is sure to yield a good "picker" some treasures to take home. We started that rummage when we furnished the Cabin! What great fun!
For readers, you do not want to miss a trip to the Green Valley Book Fair. Publisher overruns can be bought for up to a 90% discount and there are NY Times bestsellers, a full line of religious books, something for crafters, cooks, gardeners, and award winning books for children of all ages. It is a teachers' paradise who wishes to enhance her classroom library. They have all genres and a variety of gift items you may be able to take back for special occasions. It's good stuff. Check this out online to be sure they are open while you are here.
In addition to cinemas, there are professional theaters in Staunton and Harrisonburg, always offering a very fine playbill for their audiences. Check out the American Shakespeare Center for what's playing at the Blackfriar - the only authentic replica of Shakespeare's "real" stage in the world! Also, look up the Forbes Center at JMU and see what might be playing there. Both are wonderful theaters.
Hiking on the farm may quench your thirst for the outdoors, but we are a short drive from the National Forest and about 30 minutes from the Skyline Drive where you can connect with the Appalachian Trail.
You can spend a full day at the vineyards and be home for dinner. These award winning vintners have mastered their craft and captured the agricultural climate in this area to grow and process some of the best wine in the world. Jefferson wanted this over 200 years ago, and now it is a successful and prosperous part of Virginia's economy. The vineyards often have live music and other special events on the weekends. Look for Bluestone, Rockbridge, Barren Ridge, and Cross Keys to begin your search. There are others, but these are the more established and closest to the Cabin.
After all of this, you may want to just stay around the Cabin and have a relaxing day at the farm, spend some time in the pool, and enjoy the clear starry skies of the evening, the early morning mist, and the beautiful sounds of nature from daylight through dark.
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We are two "mostly retired" people who have raised four grown children and now enjoy 13 grandchildren while hosting guests from the US and abroad in our two vacation rental properties on our farm. A retired banker and college professor what we love most is working outside in our yard and gardens, caring for a variety of animals large and small, and when time permits travelling. We have spent time in most of the 48 states, Hawaii, Mexico, the Caribbean, Canada, Ireland, Scotland and the UK, France and surrounding European countries. One of us was raised on a farm and one was raised in an urban area. We are graduates of Virginia's top two rival universities, however most of the degrees in this family are from VT.
Why the Owner Chose Churchville, VA, USA:
We bought the farm in 1997 but the owner held back the Cabin and 13 acres for his own family. With a first refusal agreement of purchase, we bought the Cabin in 2011 primarily to get the bridge. In order to own and maintain the bridge, we needed the Cabin. By the way, the next bridge down leads to one of our son's homes and it, too, was on the original Cabin property. Once the owner's family bought their own home elsewhere, and after three years of renting our other property, the Cottage at Seven Oaks Farm, we decided to renovate the Cabin and offer it for vacations and long weekends as a second option to the Cottage. The two are quite different.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property was the original building on this 175 acre tract of farmland. Built first as a simple hunting cabin, it does not have the fine workmanship of a permanent home. However, through the years and several iterations of updating, it has evolved into a cozy and very comfortable dwelling nestled in a corner of the larger property. Wildlife including deer and turkeys can been seen almost everyday. They quietly pasture on the farm along with the sheep and other animals. With vistas of the lower farm meadow, you should be able to see them while you are here.
