READY TO RELAX?

Pack your comfy clothes. Leave your worries behind. It's time for a trip to Kerr Lake. Nestled in a private cove on Kerr Lake, the Log Cabin is a perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Located in Clarksville, Virginia, the Log Cabin is just 1.5 hours from Raleigh, 2 hours from Richmond and 3 hours from Charlotte. It's a short drive, but you'll feel like you're a million miles away.

YOUR ACCOMMODATIONS

You'll enjoy views of the lake from nearly every room in the house, a sprawling deck, open floor plan and rustic furnishings. With four bedrooms and two bathrooms, the Log Cabin sleeps 8 (1 queen, 2 full, 2 twin beds), but can accommodate a larger family with the use of toddler cots (2 available upon request), a pack 'n' play (1 available upon request) and a comfy sofa. Bathing towels and bedding are provided (please bring your own beach towels). Dining room seats 8. Kitchen is well equipped for a group of 8+. House has heat and air conditioning.

YOUR ITINERARY

Drink your morning coffee and enjoy the sunrise on the front porch glider. Take a run along the trails through the quaint neighborhood. Catch an impressive catfish or bass from the private dock. Soak up rays, dine alfresco and watch deer roam the 3-acre property from the expansive deck. Play tennis or basketball on the neighborhood court. Take a nap or watch the sunset in the comfy hammock. Cook the catch of the day on the gas grill. Roast hotdogs and marshmallows over the fire pit. Play games around the large dining room table. Watch movies in front of the gas fireplace.

WATER PLAY

Kerr Lake is a popular water sports destination with plenty of open water for skiing, wake boarding, tubing, etc. If you prefer a more relaxing water experience, the cove is the place to be. Swim in the calm waters around the dock or lounge on your float and enjoy the peaceful cove with heron, geese and ducks.

BOATING

Located on a calm cove, the U-shaped slip dock has room for three boats (or more). Put your boats in at Longwood Park (5 miles away) and visit Clarksville Marina (6 miles away) for all of your boating needs. Unlike many Kerry Lake properties, the Log Cabin has only a slight incline from the water to the house, making loading and unloading easy. If you have strong arms, the dock is accessible by both strollers and wheelchairs.

FISHING

The crappie, catfish, striper and bass are calling ... It's time to drop a line! The Log Cabin's private dock features a fish cleaning station with both power and running water. Bobcat's Bait & Tackle (4 miles away) has everything you need for a great fishing trip on Kerr Lake. No boat? No problem! Catch your dinner from the dock. The largest catch from the dock so far is a 32 pound catfish. Can you top that? Send us your photos from the dock!

SHORELINE FUN

If you prefer to stay onshore, you can take a short walk along the cove to the nearby peninsula. There is a sandy beach, great swimming area for kids, a picnic table, grill and horseshoes. The land along the shoreline is public property and great for exploring, fort building, frog catching and hide-and-go-seek. AREA With buildings dating back to 1889, Clarksville, Virginia has an old-fashioned feel to it. It's a small town with friendly locals who are happy to provide tips about the area. The downtown is just a 10 minute drive or short boat ride from the Log Cabin. You can tie up your boat at the public dock and explore Virginia's only lakeside town. There are plenty of restaurants and shops to explore as well as several grocery stores and fast food options. Looking for dinner to go? Call ahead - some restaurants will deliver to the dock!

About Jennifer Andrassy

We live in Raleigh, North Carolina, but we love to come up to Clarksville, Virginia as much as possible. Joey is all about fishing, boating, home renovation and craft beer. Jen is all about the great outdoors – hiking, running, swimming, kayaking … you name it. She works in front of a computer writing all day, so she relishes her time at Kerr Lake.

Jennifer Andrassy purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Jennifer Andrassy chose Clarksville

We bought the cabin in early 2015 with hopes of renting it and sharing it with family and friends. This is our first real estate investment venture/adventure. So far we’ve learned it’s a little harder than it looks on TV, but it’s been worth it. It means so much to us to hear that our guests feel like they can relax here and enjoy quality time with their loved ones. It's amazing how this place is so close to everything, but feels like a million miles away. It really is a wonderful escape.

What makes this cabin unique

We bought this log cabin because it felt like home to us. The neighborhood is beautiful to walk/run through, which is hard to find in the Clarksville area. We love that there is only a slight slope from the lake to the house, which makes it safe for kids and elderly guests. You'll see that it's rare to find a property like ours on Kerr Lake. Lake access can be treacherous from some properties. Not ours! It's right on a beautiful, calm cove with a sandy beach nearby. Locals gather on the beach to mingle, kids swim and play horseshoes, families use the picnic table and grill for waterside lunches. It's idyllic, really. Spending the evenings or early mornings sitting on the dock and watching the heron and eagles fly overhead is so relaxing. Lounging in a float in the cove or paddling over to the sandy beach is another favorite activity. We also enjoy catching our dinner - usually catfish. It's great that you can enjoy the lake (and tasty fish) with or without a boat. I like the private cove because I can jump off the dock and swim around with my kids without worrying about boats, tubers, etc. running us over or making big waves. Plus, there's plenty of space for skiing and wake boarding on the main channel just a short boat ride away. The Log Cabin is also very close to Longwood Recreation Area on US Highway 15, which has a boat ramp, swimming area and playground. Bobcat's bait and tackle is also around the corner for all of your fishing needs. The proximity of the cabin to downtown Clarksville is great for short boat rides to lunch or evenings out. Two grocery stores, fast food options, elegant dining and shopping is just a 5-mile drive from the cabin by car.

Beautiful cabin on the lake

  • 4 of 5

The log cabin is a great place to stay. It is clean and is located on a quiet cove with easy access to the main lake. Our group of 6 fishermen enjoyed 3 days of great fishing. The dock has electric service so charging the trolling motor batteries was simple. The cabin is equipped with everything you could possibly need or want.

Welcome home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a completely unexpected experience. We stayed at the cabin for a month and from the moment we stepped in the front door, we felt at home. Pictures tell only part of the story. They can't help you feel the quality and beauty of this place. Everything presented in the description is better in person. The woods around the house have daily visits from deer who are happy to watch you as you watch them. Birders, bring your binoculars. The inside of the house is refined rustic. Every room is simply and beautifully decorated. Beds are very comfortable. We cooked almost every meal and the selection of pots and cooking utensils was impressive. We have never rented a place where the owners had anticipated every need. What you are looking for is in the most logical place, every time.

The little town of Clarksville has a good grocery store. Go to the Deli downtown for the best sandwiches. Find delicious and authentic Mexican food at Los Bandidos. Harpers Jewelry store in South Hill is the place to bring any piece you might need repaired with skilled, careful attention and a great price. They redefine gracious hospitality.

While this is a rural area, you are an hour and 15 minutes away from Chapel Hill, Raleigh Durham. The Duke Gardens are worth the trip. The house has a resource notebook of maps and menues and suggestions that even in a month we could not do them all.

There were some impressive rain storms to enjoy. The heat and the air conditioning work well...we used both. I quilted on the rainy days and could still enjoy looking out at the lake. Jennifer and Joey are attentive hosts who truly want your time as their guests to be as enjoyable as possible. We have rented properties each summer for the past 9 years with HomeAway and this was our best choice by far. Enjoy!

Clarksville is Virginia's only lakeside town. It has nice restaurants and quaint shops typical of a small town, but has a old-timey feel to it with several buildings dating back to the early 1900s. You'll love riding your boat to the town dock and walking to lunch or dinner downtown. If you want to explore the surrounding area, take a ride to nearby Farmville, where you can enjoy a ropes course, shopping, dining and drinks by the river.
