RUSTIC, AUTHENTIC, HISTORIC LOG CABINS
Ever dream about 'a cabin in the woods'? Do you remember what a very dark, star-filled sky looks like? Remember your childhood delight seeing fireflies flicker on summer nights? Well, here is your opportunity! Bring that book you have been waiting to read. Leave the busy-ness of the usual workday and its commute traffic. Reconnect with your-self, your love, deepen the bond with a child or friends. Most importantly, re-connect with the natural environment that is so very vital and in resonance with the core of your being.
Our hand-hewn log cabins are situated on 250 acres of rolling Shenandoah farmland and nature preserve. From many places on the farm you will feast on the gorgeous views. From the highest hilltop we call Mt Grace you will drink in an awe-inspiring 360 degree view of both the Alleghenies & the Blue Ridge Mountains spanning at least 7 counties.
