Situated atop the entry road of a 250 acre Shenandoah Valley farm, only 4 miles from charming Lexington, 3 colleges, restaurants & gift shops, sits a cabin made up of 3 little cabins. This cabin was home for 14 yrs for a professional nature writer & professor. Above 2 river confluence.

The space
The center section of this 3 part cabin was found on the 'back 40' in sticks. It was gathered & moved to this location, reconstructed & then two small cabins were added to the original to create the one cabin. You can see the 3 sections in the vista photos.
A writer-in-residence for W & L Univ lived here for 14 years before our turning it into a guest rental. There is a sweet loft with Q bed over the living room & up some steepish stairs for the adventurous... a fun place to sleep though the main bedroom is on the first floor opposite the bathroom.
You will find 2 rockers on the front porch to while away the hours in peace & tranquility. On the back deck is a gas grill, & in the yard is a circular picnic table with umbrella & 3 Adirondack chairs for relaxing.

Where you’ll be

Buena Vista, Virginia, United States

We love the tranquility, abundant wildlife, the character of the cabins & the drop-jaw vistas from most anywhere on the farm. The top of the farm has a hilltop called Mount Grace. On it is the State of Grace sacred circle with a modern day labyrinth recently completed. Antonia's geometric sculptures, the 'Geometries of Love', have been placed inside the circle. The ceremonial flags of saffron & crimson are put up when the occasion calls.

I am currently a co-owner/co-operator of a vacation cabin & event facility on 250 acres in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. It is amazingly beautiful here. My husband & I moved here after several decades in Sausalito/Sebastopol CA & 6 yrs sailing & living aboard our deep sea sailing vessel. We love water, mountains, the natural environment, travel, good restaurants & fun coffee shops. I am totally intrigued with sacred geometry, design sculptures, facilitate workshops/retreats, have had & continue to have a colorful, incredible career & life path. Life is more than good!!
