This property is gorgeous and has plenty of room. The house and kitchen is very nicely stocked. If I was forced to find a negative, it wound be there isn’t much room in bedrooms or kitchen to store your own stuff because it’s so well appointed :). The sunrise behind the trees was breathtaking and sitting out under the night sky with a fire in the fire pit was awesome. You can see so many stars without light pollution. We took the trail by the old barn down to the creek. Worth the walk, but be prepared for some real exercise. You don’t realize until you are headed back that your trek down was down hill. Nice to enjoy the outdoors and sounds of nature. This property is not right in town, which is part of the charm. But there are plenty of places to drive to and plenty of history. Be sure to go see and walk the High Bridge and drive to Appomattox for some cute shops and a home town diner with great daily specials. We homebased here to go to both the Massanutten ski resort (2+hours) and Wintergreen (1hr or so) Enjoyed the snow tubing set up at wintergreen more than Massanutten. Thanks for allowing us to stay and enjoy a great family Christmas vacation!!
We could not have been happier with our late December stay at the Weekend Getaway Cabin.
The cabin is set back in the woods and closely surrounded by trees. There is minimal road noise and near total seclusion. It has a wonderfully cozy feel, even with the high ceilings. The kitchen has everything you need for a weekend and the bed is very comfortable. Our biggest struggle was deciding which porch to sit on. We eventually settled on back porch coffee and front porch wine, since the front was decorated with lights and garland for Christmas.
The weather was unexpectedly warm for our visit and walk on the High Bridge Trail, which you can easily access from the property. This led my wife to forget her winter jacket in the bedroom closet. Wilmer graciously took the time to get it back to us, going above and beyond as a host.
Cannot recommend this property enough!
