- SAVOR THE PEACE AND QUIET - CELEBRATE NATURE - Welcome to Cair Paravel Farmstead! Located 2000 feet up in the Blue Ridge Mountains up a mile and a half state maintained gravel road, our 30 ft. diameter Blue Ridge Yurt Company yurt has everything you could ask for: a romantic getaway for two or an escape for friends and family up to six. Perched on the mountainside above the barn you are able to see and listen to the farm creatures. It is a delightful experience to try to identify the various sounds coming from the barn and the surrounding forest. You will be able to hear the roosters crow and the Great Pyrenees livestock protection dogs barking and doing their jobs. The wild bird chorus starts before dawn. We are a small working farmstead and you will hear the domestic and wild creatures that are residents on the mountain. Amenities in the yurt include full kitchen, bathroom with separate shower and bath, HD TV with local stations, Blu-ray DVD player, iPod dock in the bedroom, handicap accessibility including a ramp onto decking, gas grill, fire pit, and outdoor charcoal grate. Please note that though child-friendly (Baby Bliss cloth baby chair, sippy cups, child's plates, Gerber Graduates eating utensils) the yurt is not child proof (a safety kit provided for your use). Due to the unique aspects of our infrastructure we DO count infants as a guest. For your convenience a Pack N Play set-up and baby monitor are available for an additional charge. Cair Paravel is a sustainable farm that seeks to apply the principles of permaculture and biodynamic agriculture with the goal to maintain a minimal footprint upon the earth. Our water is supplied from two artesian deep wells and is clear, pure mountain water which is amazing, right from the tap. The posted standard rate is $185/night/one bed. Additional guests are $30 per person. Weekends we have a two night minimum. Maximum occupancy 6 persons including infants. Rates may vary dependent upon season, holidays, and/or special events. NO SMOKING PERMITTED. We are sorry but NO PETS due to the livestock located on the property as well as allergens being trapped in the cloth inner structure. For more information about our farm keep up with us ...friend us at....Cair Paravel Farmstead.
There are many area attractions and activities- hiking in the Shenandoah National Park, visiting Monticello or Montpelier, following the Monticello Wine Trail or the Brew Ridge Trail, and checking out the work of Virginia Artisans in the local shop: Noon Whistle Pottery. We are close to both Charlottesville and Harrisonburg. For other activities and attractions check out our guidebook. If you are considering hiking take a look at Hiking Upward. The site has great maps and descriptions of the trails as wells as a great rating system.
  • Whit was fantastic and accommodating. The Yurt is incredible and the views are gorgeous. I would absolutely stay here again.

  • I just enjoyed my third stay at the yurt. I feel so lucky to have found such a beautiful place to return to. My friends and I started playing a game there called "can you find a single eyesore?" Short game, as there isn't one! It's beautiful, the breakfasts are filling and delicious, and the surrounding area and hikes are marvelous. It's the perfect combination of privacy and feeling like you've been welcomed into someone's very special home. Best night's sleep ever! The rainstick and mini accordion are nice touches too!

    Kacy2012-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • An incredible experience, most welcoming and very attentive. Both Whitt and Martha are wonderful hosts and the food, OMG, what a culinary experience. Must tour the farm, it gives you a wonderful perspective on what our earth is like. The yurt was a 5 star accommodation. Thank you all (Kelly and William too) and look forward to visiting soon.

    Jak2014-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second time at the yurt. This time we brought another couple with us to ring in the New Year! We enjoyed our time very much - relaxing, cooking, making a bonfire, soaking in the hot tub. The new addition of the short hiking path around the property was a nice surprise and a good start to the trip. The breakfasts were top notch as usual and Martha and Whitt both very friendly and relaxed, as well as always available.

    Kira2015-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place is gorgeous! The Yurt was perfectly well kept and comfy. I love the deck around the yurt and we enjoyed sitting out on it as we enjoyed the wonderful nature around us. Whitt was also very helpful even though we were very late for our reservation due to unforeseen plans. We were definitely sad to leave after only a short while but will be back for sure.

    Sara2015-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I spent a weekend in the yurt and really enjoyed it. Whitt and Martha were very responsive while booking, and got back to me usually within minutes of sending a message. Whitt was finishing farm work when we arrived, but we got settled into the yurt, and he showed up to greet us shortly thereafter. The yurt is everything that the pictures and other reviews highlight; it's large and has a full kitchen stocked with basic supplies and utensils. It's every bit as luxurious as a nice hotel, but much more unique. The road to the yurt is narrow, and could be challenging for large vehicles, but it's easy if you take it slow and pay attention to oncoming vehicles. I highly recommend a stay for a quiet weekend away. We had a great time listening to the rain fall on the yurt, and sitting on the deck listening to the sounds of the farm. Whitt and Martha gave us a tour of the farm before checking out, and I would highly recommend you take the opportunity. The work that they are doing on the farm is very impressive and really interesting. We will definitely be back to stay again.

    Pat2015-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding, unique woodland retreat. Past woods & fields, onto a dirt track for 1.5 miles and just when you think you are lost, there it is. This beautifully crafted yurt, elegantly furnished with comfy bed, full kitchen, good shower and all the green credentials you could wish for. Plus a pool and hot tub to yourself. Our host brought a hot, freshly made breakfast to our door each morning, to be enjoyed under the awning on the deck. If its cold at all, there is a log fire, TV and Scrabble to be enjoyed....but just listen to the peace and enjoy the solitude. A very special place indeed.

    Barbara2011-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • Another great stay @ the Yurt! This time it was a 3 night stay in November and once again the accommodations, food, and ambiance were first rate. It's nice to visit at different times of the year, because you can experience the pool and hot tub in the Summer and the beautiful leaves and cozy fireplace in the Fall. We'll be back next Summer!

  • We spent 4 days at the Tree House and enjoyed it immensely. The tree house was clean, well prepared, peaceful, and a fun place to be. David and Kumud were very friendly and helpful with anything we needed. We enjoyed being in a natural setting yet less than 30 minutes from Charlottesville and Shenandoah National Park. Two thumbs up and highly recommended for anyone desiring a unique location in a quiet natural setting.

    Paul2014-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very cool, beautiful and unique place. The hosts are very friendly and hospitable. Highly recommended!

    Thomas2014-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • the check in process was a breeze. we got in and headed out to start a fire in the sauna right away. it was really enjoyable, they have made a very unique little "eco village" and all the amenities were very nice. We stumbled around looking for the kitchen at first but then realized it was across the street, 5 min walk, in the green barn, which was also an amazing building and amenity space.

    brooke2014-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay in the Treehouse. The room was perfectly equipped and sleeping in the tree house felt exciting, but we also felt comfortable up there. The farm was conveniently close to the National Park and Charlottesville, which are great places for recreation. We used the community kitchen for breakfast and dinner, it was well equipped and we also had a fridge in our room. We met Kumud only just before we left, but she was a warm-hearted, interested and welcoming host. She and David have created a wonderful space for their guests, which we would highly recommend for everyone.

    Lisa2015-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our relaxing stay at the adorable tree house. The hosts were very kind and welcomed us on arrival. The tree house was even nicer than expected and efficient in its design and appointments. On the upper deck, you can reach out and touch the leaves of nearby trees. We also enjoyed the outdoor living space on the deck below, which had a swing and gas grill. The common kitchen was stocked with essential cooking supplies, and very well kept. The location was beautiful, and we spent some time hiking in the nearby Shenandoah State Park.

    Cynthia2015-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely, lovely place. David and Kumud were very welcoming and easy to communicate with.

    Elspeth2013-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful experience! We spent a whole week here for our honeymoon. Our hosts were pleasant and helpful, and the layout of the area was beautiful. The tree house location is very private and includes all the basics. Everything else you may need is very close by in the Castle. There are a lot of little things to do and to check out to keep you busy.

    Alex2015-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at the white lotus was so peaceful! Unfortunately we arrived at dusk but we still were able to take a little walk around the amazing property! David and Kumud recommended a local Italian restaurant! Which was much needed after all the fast food we had eaten! We definitely took advantage of the wood burning sauna (highly recommend!!) the tree house was very cozy and comfortable!! We had a couple of furry visitors come to our door! Penny and scrappy the cutest and sweetest dogs! The only regret we have is staying for only one night! We will defiantly be coming back!

    Mountain retreat, surrounded by forest, ample outdoor space (2 level deck), tree-house feel! Ideal for a couple, 2 bathrooms, WiFi, hiking nearby. Unbelievable views, stylish yet rustic comfort. 25 min to Staunton, 45 min to Charlottesville, under 3 hrs to DC.
    Designed like an umbrella perched on the side of a mountain, the vaulted ceilings and glass walls let you feel like you are floating in the trees with the hummingbirds and finches! Artsy and modern yet woodsy and rustic, this is a fantastic escape from fast paced DC or Richmond city life.
  • What isn’t to love about this cozy & artful mountain cabin? My family of four convened for the holidays in this cabin and we couldn’t have been happier. Jill was super accommodating, quick to respond and kind. We loved the fireplace, the views … my dad was super pleased about the guitar-in-residence too ☺ We brought some groceries and even made ourselves a lovely Christmas dinner. On Christmas Eve we attended a performance at the Blackfriar's Theater (totally recommend as well!) Our parting thoughts with the cabin: when can we return? I couldn’t recommend this place more!

    Olivia Blakely2013-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Jill and Sarah Beth were exceptional hosts. The house met all of our expectations and we had an exceedingly fun weekend.

    Matthew2015-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I had a wonderful getaway weekend at Jill's cozy mountain house, which is exactly as gorgeous as it looks in the photos. Jill made the booking process quick and easy and answered my questions very promptly. Sarah Beth greeted us at check in, provided great info about the area and nearby hikes, and made us feel so welcome. The house has everything you need for a short stay, and Jill and Sarah Beth's extra touches made it really special. We'll definitely be back.

    Rebecca2016-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • The Octagon is fantastic. Jill and Sarah are great hosts. We stayed for a week and really enjoyed the house and the surrounding forest. Lots of hiking options within 15-30 min, good dining in Staunton or just relax on the terrace. Time passed by too quick and we hope to come back again.

    André2014-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Well, what can I say. This place is beautiful. My two girlfriends and I spent the weekend here and despite all the rain, it was wonderful. We were able to relax, reading on the porch, cooking dinner, and binge watching Netflix. The house is wonderful and you can tell the owners want to make visitors happy. I can't wait to come back again!

    Jennifer2015-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • This place was amazing. Jill provided us with everything we needed for a great stay!

    Matthew2014-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • The Octagon is the perfect getaway spot. It is unique in design and offers great views and seclusion. Perfect for a valentines day retreat with my wife. Sarah Beth and Jill were extremely gracious and had everything ready for us when we arrived. The house was clean, fully stocked with anything you would need, and comfortable. Even on the coldest days of the year it was extremely warm and cozy. I would recommend this to any couple interested in spending quality time together.

    Christopher2015-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Believe! Everything you have read in all the glowing reviews is true. We just spent a week at the Octagon. My wife was sick, so we spent a lot of time in the house. If you have to be sick, that's a great place to be. You didn't have to go further than the porch to enjoy the full splendor of approaching spring. I could have spent all day just enjoying the various woodpeckers that came to feed. We really didn't feel like we had to go anywhere else to feel the full joy of vacation. We did manage to go to the Blackfriar theater one night - do not miss it!

The property was peaceful and private. Every amenity one would need was provided. Easy access to grocery store. Easy drive to Portsmouth, Norfolk and local beaches. Would definitely come back again!

    Anne2014-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Kenny and Kathy have a beautiful handcrafted home. I truly appreciated their attention to details, the gardens and the creative woodworking throughout, gave it a luxurious feel. I felt so relaxed, nestled in a garden like paradise walking distance to the marina and beach! It was my own private pool hall with surround sound stereo and my own personal spa to soak in a beautiful tub with bath oils and all! They thought of everything! I would certainly love to return in the future!

    Elizabeth2014-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a beautiful and relaxing time at the Shangri-La in Hampton. The space was gorgeous, clean, and luxurious. We would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway and we will definitely return ourselves if in Virginia.

    Peter2014-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Kenny and Kathy were amazing hosts. The place is very private and insanely comfortable. Everything you could ever need is in that place - you don't even have to leave the house. Their home is beautiful and a walking distance from some good eats... Thank you so much Kenny and Kathy for a true home away from home.

    Sara2017-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Would definitely stay again.

    maria2017-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • Kenny was a super accomodating host for our rather unusual group (sailboat racing team). We loved the pool after a hot day of sailing! The accommodations were beautiful, very comfortable, and we enjoyed discovering the quirky art around the pool and gardens.

    Yvonne2017-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Didn't want to leave! Kathy and Kenny are wonderful, Shangri-La is lovely and provides a beautiful, quiet spot that's spacious and accommodating. We can't wait to come back!

    Gerald2015-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful visit at Shangri-La. We just loved the home-like feel for our stay. We enjoyed our interaction with Kathy and Kenny, and especially appreciated the touring tips. We hope to go back again.

    ~IF YOU DON'T SEE THE DATE YOU WANT, CHECK OUT OUR NEW EAGLE'S LANDING TIPI~ Enjoy the unique experience of upscale camping in an authentic American Indian Tipi! Cozy up in the fur blankets and listen to the crackling wood and chirping birds. Our horse farm is 5 min. from LU. On site horseback riding, fishing, and hiking are available. You’ll love the views, the location, the outdoors space. It's a great place for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).
    The tipi is located on a private camp site with picnic table, fire pit, hammock, and parking space all to yourself! Though we do not have air-conditioning, we do have a fan and electrical outlets.
  • My girlfriend and I loved our stay at the tipi. I booked it as a surprise for her to give us a night to ourselves while visiting family for Christmas! She was thrilled, and the amenities, furniture, and bedding were top notch. The fire was a bit tough to get started but luckily while we were out to dinner I'm assuming Angela got the stove going for us and it was hot when we arrived! You'll need to add logs roughly every 3 hrs to keep it hot and going if you're staying on a cold night, although the bedding is very, very warm. Great stay, romantic, and unique for air bnb!

    Trey2016-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had an absolutely wonderful time in the tipi! Even on a snowy night, the tipi was cozy with the warm wood stove and abundance of fuzzy blankets. A once in a lifetime experience!

    Erin2017-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • awesome tipi. I want to build one now :) overall a cool place - wish it were it a bit more removed from the daily horse corrals, but no big deal. had everything we would have needed for our 3 night stay. about 40 minutes to the blue ridge parkway for hiking. would love come back in the fall to take advantage of the wood burning stove.

    Matthew2017-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place is great! We took our toddler along and Angela was thoughtful enough to have a toddler bed set up and ready to go for us. We'll be back!

    Amanda2017-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • This was the best place we have ever stayed overnight! We had a leadership retreat here and absolutely LOVED it. We highly recommend to everyone. It is cute, affordable and SO cozy.

    Laura2017-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Angela's tipi was even better in person than in the photos! So much fun and such a different experience. We would definitely go back. Our only wish was that we had a later checkout so we could have stayed longer!

    Jenni2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • It's a cute, bright tipi that's easily accessible from the highway and a pretty good in-between if you're into camping but not into sleeping on the ground.

    Kelly2017-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • What a magical place! Angela and family have created a beautiful, comfortable, unique space to relax and recharge. We worried that we might not be able to handle 30 degree weather in a tipi but the fire--fully stocked with firewood--and furry blankets kept us warm throughout the night. We made our dinner on the propane stove and left our cold brew coffee on the doorstep to be fully chilled by Mother Nature in the morning. Angela left us big, fluffy towels, shampoo, and soap though we weren't brave enough to try the shower. In the summer, though, we'd happily stay a week to thoroughly enjoy all of the charms of this fantastic place and welcoming hosts.

  • Chuck was an excellent host, generous and full of stories! He gave us a tour of his beautiful and unique home and made sure we felt at home. He made us coffee for the morning and had ready recommendations for restaurants, etc. There was so much to look at in the house, we were sorry to only have one night there. We will make sure to stay longer next time! Highly recommended!

    Gilat2015-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • It is truly hard to imagine a more gracious host than Chuck. From the moment we arrived he made us feel warmly welcome and instantly at ease. He was a wealth of information and suggestions for nearby dining and recreation. The property is breathtaking and the house is even more spectacular than in the photos. The location is in the middle of everything yet feels a world away life's chaos. This is the ultimate dog-friendly property with an expansive yard, fenced area, and one great intangible factor -- an owner who is a genuine dog person through and through. We only stayed one night but would return in a heartbeat. Our trip felt not like a night in a stranger's home, but a reunion with the dearest of friends we've known for a lifetime.

    Drew2017-10-19T00:00:00Z

    carole2017-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Chuck is very nice and he has a really cute dog named Charlotte! Chuck has many fantastic pictures on the wall and all of us found singers we like in them (I like Joan Jett:) )The house is amazing! !It is the best house I have even seen, with a great location by the lake and fantastic design! My friends and I had a really great night and morning in the house with such amazing design and furniture. The solar dolls on the window are cute under the sun! We traveled around Norfolk and Virginia Beach during weekend and Chuck's house is a great choice and also a great place as a tourist spot!We took many photos there since it's so amazing! (Hope we didn't bother you too much) Hope we could come to the house and meet Chuck and Charlotte again! By the way, thanks for the restaurant recommendation the Captain George is great!

    Mo2017-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place and an incredible host. Surpassed our expectations!! Charlotte is delightful. ;)

    Naga Bharath2017-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Chuck was the ultimate host! He opened his home and welcomed me enthusiastically. The photos of his house don't do it justice. The house is stunning and the views are gorgeous. Chuck made my weekend getaway one of the most relaxing experiences. He was attentive and present and never intrusive. I would return without question.

    Bobby2015-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • House is beautiful, quirky and (URL HIDDEN) is perfect for a stopover or getaway. Chuck is a warm, attentive host. I will definitely be back!

    2 bdrm cottage, queen and double on 28 private acres on the York River in Gloucester, Virginia. Nearby inlets for kayak exploration. River is lightly traveled. Easy access to Yorktown, Newport News, Williamsburg, Jamestown, Richmond, Norfolk, Urbanna. THIS IS A QUIET GETAWAY, NOT A PLACE FOR 'FRATERNITY/SORORITY' OR GROUP PARTYING! ALCOHOL AND WATERWAYS DO NOT MIX!
    We are currently having some maintenance problems with the pool and are looking for a contractor to refurbish it, we do not know when the construction will start. It is usable, the sides are a bit bubbly after a rain. All other amenities are in working order at this moment. Please note that this is a rustic residence/cottage NOT A HOTEL, not a gormet kitchen. NO PETS! The cottage is very private, but the Hot tub, pool, and sauna are on the owners side and available for your use. We have 2 ocean type kayaks. Very very Light boats can be launched with 4wd. Both bedrooms are queen size. Fantastic view of the river. Crab pots are available, but bring your own bait, best crabbing is late August/September. This is a RUSTIC COUNTRY COTTAGE. It's equipped BUT NOT FANCY. We have updated the electrical sockets to make them child proof. There is a large screen tv with basic cable if there is an event you can't miss. Also a DVD for movies. Internet availability is at the mercy of the supplier. If you wish to use the land for events, you must apply for special rate. Let us know.
    Very country neighborhood, great for hiking, biking. Famous and need to get away from paparazzi and fans? The place is unpretentious and gated.
  • We had an amazing time relaxing at the pool and laying on the hammock during the day while gazing at the stars from the hot tub at night. Bill and Yvonne were extremely accommodating and a pleasure to talk with. The house was very cute and had everything we needed.

    Meredith2015-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • This property is a very special place, and we were very thankful that the Dodsons shared it with us. The hosts were quite welcoming, very helpful and never intrusive. Mrs. Yvonne even taught my daughter to fish for the first time. She was hooked, and "reely" enjoyed it. We had a great time swimming and canoeing, and saw lots of wildlife. The house was very well equipped with everything one might need for cooking or adventuring. We would absolutely return to this slice of paradise!

    Heather2015-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! We absolutely loved our weekend in Bill and Yvonne's cottage. Our first night we swam in the pool and enjoyed the hot tub. The next morning we went kayaking on the river. The location is so idyllic. We couldn't get over how quiet and peaceful it was. We didn't hear a single car the whole time we were there. This was quite a contrast from our life in busy Northern Virginia. We visited Yorktown and hope to stay in the cottage again when we come to see Jamestown and Williamsburg in the future.

    Deborah2017-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is as unique as the photos show, a gorgeous, private setting. It was easy to launch kayaks in the river and very fun to play in the pool. It's nice to have Bill and Yvonne on site, in case you have questions or need anything, but still we felt as if we had the place delightfully to ourselves.

    Lisa2015-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great location in the River York. We had a wonderful time.

    Stephan A.2016-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Bill and Yvonne's cottage was a great New Years getaway for me and my 4 friends. The cottage was cozy, well-equipped, and right on the water. We had a little trouble with the fireplace, but Yvonne came to the cottage immediately to help us (Bill and Yvonne live in the bigger house next door). We used the kitchen extensively and also used the hot tub, which we loved. Overall, the cottage is quaint and comfortable.

    Payal2016-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was very clean larger than it looks in the picture. The pool was very nice as well. We had a relaxing long weekend!

    Jessi2015-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • The trip was lovely. Yvonne even gave us some of their locally-distilled rum to try. The pool was nice and clean, and so was the hot tub. The house was in good shape, aside from some sockets in the kitchen that gave out on our second day. The views were gorgeous. There was a lot of back and forth in the yard during the day due to construction, but we were warned about that and it wasn't a big deal. Also, the pool was being used by other friends/family of the host, which we didn't mind but would've liked a heads up about.

    Location, location, location! Only 900' from the beach, this private apartment on the ground floor of my home provides easy access to the beach, boardwalk and all the Oceanfront has to offer without being right in the middle of the hustle and bustle. Two private entrances, indoor and outdoor showers, patio, grill, fenced backyard, bicycles and beach gear included.
    The bedroom includes a Queen-size bed and plenty of closet space. The living room sofa folds out to a second Queen-size bed, perfect the kids. The exterior door in the bedroom leads to the fenced-in back yard, shared with the owner (me), but you'll have your own patio space for lounging outdoors. There is plenty of room for Cornhole or tossing a Frisbee in the back yard. We also have a 10' Basketball hoop in the front. Want to grill some steaks and eat in? Feel free to use the outdoor gas barbecue on the upper deck. His & Hers bicycles, beach chairs and a big beach umbrella are included at no extra charge. The outdoor shower includes hot & cold water and is perfect for rinsing the sand off after a hard day at the beach. A flat-screen HDTV, DIRECTV DVR and DVD player are included.
    35th St is in the transition zone between the bustle of the boardwalk and the 100% residential North End neighborhood. This means easy access to the restaurants, music, night life and other attractions of the Oceanfront on foot or by bicycle, but with the advantage of being a little more private and quiet.
  • A nice, little place to stay in virginia beach! Super close to everything and even has two bikes to use, which we loved!

    Chloe2017-02-12T00:00:00Z

    Rhonda2017-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • Mark was a great host and very welcoming! We felt right at home and had an awesome NYE staying here in VA beach. The bicycles were a cool touch and made it easy for us to bike to brunch on Sunday. Would definitely stay here again...right on the beach too!

    Courtney2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Mark’s place was perfect for a short weekend getaway! He gave excellent information (like specific instructions for uber or Lyft, traffic information, etc.) and amenities. He is available if you need him, but also gives you space if needed. Would definitely stay again!

    Sarah2017-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Mark's place was great--close to restaurants and the beach but on a quiet street. Super comfy bed helped us recharge, and having the chairs and umbrella available was awesome for all-day relaxing on the beach.

    Natalie2017-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • The place was great everything was perfect !

    Tiffany2016-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • The host was on hand briefly upon our arrival. He was good about sending emails with updates, questions or concerns. The neighborhood was centrally located to a number of eateries and shops. For the most part, the neighborhood was quiet with the exception of military jets flying over regularly during the week. The apartment was clean and adequate for our few days stay. The beach is a good 2 block walk from apartment.

    Tracy2016-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Mark's place. He was a great host and very helpful. The location was in a great quiet neighborhood yet very close to dining shopping and the beach. The amenities were sufficient and the bikes, great back yard and outdoor shower was a great plus. We would definitely stay there again.

    REQUIRED READING: Listing details incl "+ More.” REQUIRED: Approx check-in AND check-out timeS. We need to schedule our time & tasks. We live IN awesome Carytown so we're close to everything. We love hosting our AMAZING Airbnb guests. ¡Bienvenido! Accueil! Wilkommen! Hun yaow! Basement apt IN Carytown 90ft/30m to Cary St. Close to Fan, VCU, MCV, VMFA, downtown, General Assembly. Separate entrance, full kitchen, full bathroom. GUESTS MUST CONFIRM THEY'VE READ & SHARED THE LISTING DETAILS. Thanks!
    About to skip reading the listing details, the house rules, or your confirmed reservation (contains our address, contact information & directions)? I've put in many hours and considerable thought and effort into writing, editing, re-writing, re-editing, revisiting, re-working, updating, and revising the details. It takes but a few minutes to read them. Make sure you share the listing details with your traveling companion(s) so everyone knows what to expect. [REQUIRED READING: Guest Access.] Many thanks to those travelers who take the time to read the listing details and who, along with other gracious guests and hosts, make the Airbnb experience AWESOME, AFFORDABLE and FUN: THANK YOU!! We have made some of the most amazing connections though our Airbnb experiences (both as hosts and guests) and now have lifelong friends from all over the US, and around the world! Please note: We have been in our 90-year-old home just under 4 years: It is an in-progress work-of-art lovingly being restored or improved and upgraded for your comfort and enjoyment (new bathroom with heated floor & towel warmer, for example). Please pardon the dust/signs of upgrade projects (tools, paint, landscaping material). Thanks for taking the time to read the listing details: This BASEMENT studio APARTMENT is WITHIN 90 FT/30 M of Carytown. It has it's own separate entrance, a full kitchen, and a full bathroom. You will hear us upstairs (we researched sound isolation options and have begun implementing a solution). If you are a light sleeper or require absolute quiet (we live upstairs; during the day we perform cleaning and maintenance tasks), this listing is not a good fit for you. If you like to know your hosts are nearby, appreciate our listing & location, and like our reviews, we'd be happy to host you; we'll be right upstairs to help you with any questions, concerns, or if you've forgotten something (we usually have spares of everything).

    Free, unrestricted parallel on-street parking on our block, quite often right out front. During the busiest evenings/weekends, there's usually a spot within a block or two at most although sometimes you may have to circle the block a couple of times--something usually comes available because the turnover is high. We love our location in Carytown with its eclectic mix of locally owned shops, restaurants, the historical and MAGNIFICENT Byrd Theatre (movie theater from the silent-movie era), coffee shops, book stores, and street entertainers. Mostly within walking distance or minutes by car or bus you'll find museums, parks, the James River and its hiking/biking trail system, historic sites, Hollywood Cemetery, VCU, The Fan, Richmond Convention Center, downtown Richmond, MCV, Brown's Island, Belle Isle, the Manchester district, Church Hill ... too many to mention. We are smack dab in the heart of the most vibrant part of the city! For food, fun and interesting things to see and do, make sure you check out our GUIDEBOOK/MAP! Carytown: Diverse! Convenient! Trendy! Funky! And! Locally owned! A wide variety of restaurants and stores. Lots of local beers and Virginia cider on tap. The Byrd Theatre! Byrd Park. Maymont & The Dooley Mansion. The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The Virginia Historical Society. Virginia Society of AIA. Agecroft Hall. The Virginia House. The Fan. VCU. MCV. Richmond Convention Center. Downtown. American Civil War Center. Tredegar Iron Works. Hollywood Cemetery. + MORE ... too many to list here. Cary Street is within HALF a block right out the back door! From our house we have a view of Byrd Theatre (a Virginia Historic Landmark and also on the National Register of Historic Places). It has $4 movies 365 days of the year; what's more, every Saturday there are live performances on the Wurlitzer organ--this is a MUST see and included in the ticket price! Ray Dolby (yes, the creator of the Dolby Sound system) visited the Byrd in 2004 and was so impressed with it, he donated a Dolby Sound system (installed in 2006). Immediately behind us on Cary Street is Citizen Burger Bar that boasts beef from a local farm; they have a vegan burger option that's delicious and a menu of craft beers on tap. Sit out on the deck and enjoy Cary Street up front and center! Bev's Homemade Ice Cream is next door. The Daily on the corner of the same block is also very nice with wonderful wines, local beers, hard cider, and a delicious menu of healthy and organic food. Sugar & Twine has organic coffees, teas, sandwiches, treats, and vegan options (and free WiFi). Also, Coppola's deli (Best of Richmond) and the New York Deli (it's not really a deli, but a bar that's open 9 am till 2 am with a DJ after 10pm) are on either side of the Byrd Theatre so you won't be lacking for wonderful food and entertainment--and these are just in the block behind us. If these options aren't appealing, Carytown is about 3/4 of a mile long with tons of restaurants all up and down Cary Street--on BOTH sides of the street: Mellow Mushroom, Galaxy Diner, Mom's Siam, East Coast Provisions (excellent seafood says a guest), Amici's, Can Can, Nacho Mamma's, Home Sweet Home--WAY too many to list them all here. You may also enjoy the boutique, antique, and consignment shops in Carytown: Bygones, Mongrel, Virginia Diner (Virginia made products), Ladles & Linens, Walkabout, for ex. The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is a short four-block walk away and has a cafe, a restaurant, free wi-fi, and live music on Thursday evenings and free networking/wine/tours on Friday evenings until 9pm. Fantastic park system and trails for walking/jogging/biking--Byrd Park, Maymont and The James River Trail System. Make sure you check out our guide book on the map on our other listing (link below).

  • Fiona was very welcoming, everything was as stated. We appreciated the food she left for us (milk, butter, sugar, etc..) The bathroom was wonderful, the kitchen was a real plus. Home was one block from Carretown, a great spot to stroll. Parking was not a problem (and Free!)

  • Absolute perfect location!! Steps away from the beautiful carytown filled with bars and shops. The space was exactly like the pictures and the hosts made the place feel very welcoming. There was a lot of little touches to make it feel like a home. There was a small breakfast provided ( toast,eggs,OJ, and coffee) along with full kitchen. We where not there long enough to use the kitchen but it had everything you could need. The bathroom was beautifully updated and the heated floors were a great feature. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of extra blankets. The apartment was very clean and easy to get to. We found parking just a street away on a Friday night. During the day there was plenty of closer spaces on their street. Highly recommend!

  • Fiona & Family's apartment in Carytown was exactly what we needed for a great experience in Richmond. They were very friendly and the apartment was incredibly well stocked. I know they disclosed the noise from upstairs in the listing, but some reviewers had said they didn't even notice it. I will say, as someone not used to being in an apartment with anyone above me, it was pretty loud and kept me up for quite a while. Otherwise, it was a great experience and I'd love to stay here again if in Richmond. Highly recommend!

Take in all that Luray has to offer - caverns, restaurants, antique shops, and outdoor activities. Quick 20-30 minute drive to Rappahannock County & Shenandoah County, both of which feature additional options for vineyards, restaurants, art galleries, and more.
  • As others have said, the views and location are amazing. As a first time visitors to the Shenandoah valley and Blue Ridge mountains we were blown away by how beautiful and spectacular the area is. That said, the house was comfortable and cosy so very difficult to stir ourselves to go out some mornings... Olivia was an efficient and communicative host and was most helpful.

    Tim2015-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Olivia was great! The cabin was exactly as advertised with absolutely breath taking views. Olivia was easy to get in touch with and left very detailed instructions for everything. The cabin was clean and cozy and everything we could hope for! I would give this listing my highest recommendation.

    Matthew2016-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful house to escape to from our hectic lives. This was our second visit and enjoyed it just as much. The peace and quiet was just what we needed. Once again, it has captured our hearts! Check in and check out was as easy as pie. The kitchen is fully stocked with items to help with cooking. The view was breathtaking and had a way of hypnotising you.

    Susan2017-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Olivia's house was exactly what we were looking for. The beds were comfortable and the seemingly newly remodeled bathroom was great. Best of all was the jaw dropping views. The location was a mere ten minutes down the mountain to downtown Luray. Would recommend her listing if you are looking forward a quiet and secluded spot.

    Vinny2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Fun experience... Great views...wonderful home....Olivia provided great info to us beforehand and made our stay much more enjoyable.

    betsy2015-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • The property was as described - comfortable and a gorgeous mountaintop view. Yes, do use a 4WD vehicle, as Olivia suggests. We encountered a few things - some old foodstuffs had not been cleared, broken toilet lever, and a bit of a stink-bug situation (comes with the territory, I suppose) - but Olivia was very, very responsive to address/answer concerns.

    Robert2016-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Top vieuw is a top place not only the view but also the rustic decoration. Olivia is very helpfull and very communicative. Thank youfor the wonderfull time at your home.

    Rob 2015-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • This mountain top was the perfect place to stay for my small getaway trip! Great view, very beautiful & even got to see a few inches of snow on our last day! All very beautiful! Very cozy and had everything we needed from blankets, towels, the view & and a well stocked kitchen! Thanks for the recommendation about bringing a 4x4 on this trip because of the unexpected amount of snow we got. If it wasn't for the snow or any other weather conditions though, a regular sedan would've been fine too. Thanks Olivia! Will definitely come back again!

  • Truly one of the BEST Airbnb experiences that we've ever had! We walked into a cozy candlelit apartment with the fireplace casting a warm glow over the room. Our dogs immediately felt welcome when they saw toys, treats and a huge bowl of water awaiting them. Then the lovely hostess knocked on the door with frozen drinks! The apartment is beautiful, comfortable and was just right. It's a moments walk to the bay and a 4 minute walk to the beach. Heavenly! We can't wait to come back! Thanks!

    Deirdre2016-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • A nice stay in Andrew and Alyssa's studio. This was our first experience with airbnb. We would recommend this place. These hosts care about their guests' comfort.

    Bonnie2017-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time and Andrew and Alyssa were phenomenal! Even though it says a 4 minute walk to the beach, it was still closer than I expected. It was super easy to find and getting around to all the local stuff was a breeze. Andrew was super helpful with recommendations on local eateries and even trick-or-treat info :) The studio has literally everything you need. We would absolutely come back.

    Missy2015-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • This Airbnb rental sets the bar high for all other Airbnb rentals. Alyssa met us in the pouring rain to show us around the unit; she even greeted us with frozen drinks! The unit was nicely lit with several great smelling candles. The unit has more amenities than you can imagine! It was plenty big with an extremely comfortable bed and had nice entertainment options. Alyssa also provided snacks and breakfast items that were very convenient when you couldn't run and get food. I highly recommend this rental if you are in the Norfolk area!

    Bill2015-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, really close to the beach, great for our dog too.

    David2017-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable studio space, perfect for a couple travelling with their furry kid. Quincy enjoyed the set up just as much as we did. Especially looking out the window over the bed. Quiet, dog friendly neighborhood. Hope to return for a future Norfolk/Va Beach trip.

    Cynthia2017-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • The cozy apartment is located in a quiet neighborhood. With easy access to historic sights and anything else you might need. Andrew was very friendly and accommodating. We found the apt clean with everything we needed. We would definitely stay there again when we're in town.

    You will start to relax as soon as you drive down the driveway. You might see deer grazing outside your bedroom window in the morning and evening and there are lots of birds to watch. A morning walk by the pond is a great way to start your day. Please read the entire description before reserving, there are some important limitations you must be aware of and agree to.
    Enjoy a peaceful night with privacy in a very safe neighborhood whether you are visiting the area or just passing through. This cute little guest house is next to but separate from the main house. You have your own entrance, kitchenette, full bath, large bedroom with a queen size bed, and an upstairs loft with 4 twin beds all covered with hand made quilts. The bathroom is in the bedroom making this house more appropriate for families than 2 couples or unrelated adults. PLEASE NOTE: Because of the size of the water heater and house we allow a maximum of 4 adults or family of 6. We have a TV for playing movies from our classic DVD collection. Cell phone service can be spotty here (especially if you are not on Verizon). The kitchen has a refrigerator, small stove, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker with cooking utensils and pots and pans. We provide clean linens, tea and coffee. Grocery stores are nearby (5 – 6 miles) if you want to bring your own supplies. We use fragrance-free products in cleaning the house and linens. People with fragrance allergies should be comfortable here. The only rules are no smoking and no pets. All children must be included in the guest count. Children under 2 are not free. We are not near James Madison's home of Montpelier. Our town of Montpelier is a totally different place and over an hour from James Madison's home. We are: 6 miles from closest grocery store and about 12 miles from local retail center 10 miles from I-95, Ashland, VA exit 8 miles from Randolph Macon College, Ashland, VA 9 miles from I-295, Glen Allen, VA 13 miles from Innsbrook (Glen Allen, VA) 24 miles from Virginia Commonwealth University and Downtown Richmond 64 miles from Charlottesville, VA and University of Virginia 72 miles from Williamsburg, VA 100 miles from Washington, DC
    You will be able to relax in a very quiet neighborhood of 10 acre lots. There's one road through the neighborhood and it's a nice walk to a beautiful lake.
  • From the moment we pulled up to our adorable little guest home, I felt at peace. As we were pulling up, Vicki was already coming out to greet us and show us our little home away from home; and home it was! From the wonderful introduction, to the beautiful interior decorating, down to the smaller things (having a nice collection of teas and coffee for us, the little bowl of chocolates or the book and movie collection), to the incredibly thoughtful small gift of having a hand-made fabric postcard, we were amazed at the thought and kindness our host had put into every detail to make our stay as wonderful as it could be. I am very glad we picked here to stay, and we plan on coming back as often as we have availability to relax. Vicki was the perfect hostess, and there is nothing that was lacking or that she could have done to make us feel more at home. I felt so at home that I was sad to leave at the end of our trip, and am excited to return.

    Paul2015-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, wonderfully homey in a beautiful spot. 3/4 hr drive from Richmond. Only stayed a night but would have liked a couple more. Beautifully clean and with all needed facilities.

    Patrick2014-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • This was an amazing stay! If you're looking for a quiet, clean spot with an incredibly accommodating host - this is your spot! Thanks for an awesome, peaceful little getaway :)

    Molly2015-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is aa very nice, quiet place, and Vicki is an amazing host. I hope we will have a chance to come back. Thank you, Vicki, for your hospitality.

    Ella2015-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed staying at Vicki's place! It was immaculately clean, very comfortable and in a beautiful location in Virginia within easy driving distance of Richmond, the historic triangle and charlottesville/Monticello. We would thoroughly recommend staying here!

    Saad2012-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I met halfway in between our places at Vicki's guest house for the weekend. It was wonderful! Very cozy and clean, with a little pond out back that you can see through the window. The area is great; we went on a run through the neighborhood where there is a nice little lake. Very quiet and relaxing, and Vicki and her husband met us and made sure we were comfortable, but were never intrusive. We would definitely come and stay again!

    Lindey2013-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • We love this place! Vicki give us a warm welcome and offer us lots of useful information. The handmade postcard is so beautiful. It has everything we need and my unties enjoy the white tea. We definitely like to stay again.

    Qian2014-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Vicki made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Her cottage was the perfect accommodation for our family of six. The cottage was well equipped, clean and inviting, and the perfect size for our needs. It was wonderful to come home to a quiet, peaceful setting after a full day of traveling and visiting with friends. This was our first experience with airbnb, and we couldn't have picked a better host and place to stay. We will definitely be back if we need to travel to the Richmond area again!

    Our romantic, studio style cottage is the perfect getaway. Nestled between Floyd and Roanoke in the heart of the Blue Ridge wine district minutes from the Blue Ridge parkway. Enjoy beautiful mountain views from the large deck while you listen to the tree frogs and crickets. Sheets, dishes, pots pans, coffee, sugar, some spices Free WiFi! Dogs allowed
    This cottage has a private entrance and is located on a paved country road. It really has the best of both worlds. In the country but 20 minutes to downtown Roanoke. It's three minutes to the Blue Ridge parkway. Wake up to birds singing in this beautiful cottage where views abound from the cozy bed nestled against a wall of hand planed, re-purposed barn wood. Enjoy your coffee on the private Hey 10 x 20 ft deck. Take a bike ride on the blue ridge parkway (2 bikes are here) or a picnic lunch (we even provide the basket!) This cottage is made for the romantic getaway, yoga retreat, bike trip with friends or a wedding venue. The huge field adjoining the cottage is perfect for camping or setting a tent for the big day. The spacious 500 square foot studio style cottage enables guests to visit with friends. I offer onsite massage therapy for $75/hour (please reserve in advance). The cottage has ac but the altitude provides cool natural air conditioning in the hottest part of the summer so bring a lightweight jacket for nights. There is a full kitchen with dishes, pots and pans, basic spices and oil to prepare meals and a grocery store ten minutes away at the foot of bent mountain. You should go before arriving. There is a TV at the cottage and we have wireless internet which usually works great but will be spotty if the weather is bad. I also have cards and board games. We are centrally located between Floyd (Floydfest) and Roanoke, both rich in culture, local art, music, vineyards and breweries. Also minutes from Silverhearth lodge, a popular wedding venue in this area. Take a drive to Floyd for lunch at Oddfellas after a wine tasting at Amrhein's winery located in the heart of the Blue Ridge wine district just minutes from the cottage. Other wineries include Valhalla, Appalachia, Chateau Morrisette. There are too many local breweries to list but my favorite is Deschuttes on Market st downtown Roanoke. If you want more excitement, Roanoke is just a short ride down the mountain or a scenic drive down the Blue Ridge Parkway offering plenty of overlooks, hikes, and picnic spots. To get a bird's eye view of the Roanoke Valley, visit the Mill Mountain Star and Roanoke Mountain overlook. Once you get to Roanoke, check out the wonderful restaurants, museums, and the Mill Mountain Theater. Black Dog Salvage (salvage dogs) offers an array of shops featuring artisan made goods and re-purposed and salvaged antiques. After shopping, take a leisurely stroll by the river on the green way and stop in for a bite to eat at the Wasena Tap Room or the Green Goat. Both are located on the green way.
    We are located on a quiet, paved country road that is a short bike ride to the Blue Ridge parkway. It is country living minutes from the city! It is safe to walk or ride bikes around the area. The cottage is beside my house but very private. The deck is on the back of the cottage away from the main house.
  • Beautiful and quiet, the home was a great place to recharge. It was spacious and I did not want for any amenity. The internet did go in and out, but luckily my mobile signal was strong and I tethered. Would and will go back!

    Amy2017-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most wonderful time at this beautiful cottage in the mountains. Just a 30ish minute ride from downtown Roanoke, we were able to explore the city and then retreat to the peace and quite found here. Sheri warmly greeted us shortly after we arrived and made sure we had everything we needed. The space is lovely and very comfortable for two. Unfortunately it was a bit cooler than we expected for May, so our time outside on the patio was brief. I would love to come back for a longer stay in warmer weather. The place was clean and very inviting, nice hot shower and comfortable bed. The bistro is well within walking distance and we had a delicious dinner there the first night. We also brought back a wood fired pizza for the next day which was just as yummy reheated in the oven in the cottage. I would absolutely recommend, and I hope we have a chance to come back some day!

    Karuss2017-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet, secluded setting. Sheri is a nice host.

    Charlie2017-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Bucolic setting, and all the comforts one would expect from a "cosy cabin." Even though the cabin seems remote, access to the Blue Ridge Parkway is close, the local bistro serves creative cocktails and yummy food, and the drive into Roanoke isn't far. The cabin was clean and the deck was very relaxing. Lots of lightening bugs at night!

    Lisa2017-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful place in the midst of the Blue Ridge mountains. It was a perfect spot for a week long personal retreat. Unfortunately, had to leave after two nights due to a family emergency. Sheri offered to refund my money if she could re-rent the cottage - and she did!

    Becky2017-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot WAIT to go back to Sheri's little slice of heaven on Bent Mountain! I almost don't want to write this review b/c I'm afraid I will never again be able to get a booking ... but this place is THE perfect getaway for a week-end. The bistro within walking distance was mouth-wateringly delicious, but I must say the best part of my stay was Sheri's massage in her loft next door. I ran a 25k in the morning (Conquer the Cove) and Sheri's massage allowed me to recover he next day for a hike on Pine Mountain. Sheer Bliss!!!

    joan2016-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for a quiet getaway on bent mountain...really nice location and the bistro is a 10 minute walk away for beer and great salads and pizza. Excellent place to stay if visiting the roanoke area. Sheri was a great host who was very quick to respond and helpful for the entire visit. Would stay here again !

    Jason2017-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • Cute little place. Perfect half way pit stop on our drive from Baltimore to Asheville with our two little dogs. The awesome little cafe down the road made this cottage a great overnight stay! And the Appalachian trail hike at McAfee Knob was wonderful with the dogs too. Thanks Sheri.

    Walk a tenth of a mile through the woods from your private parking area. Enjoy the peace and quiet in our secluded Vintage 1986 Airstream. The magnificent deck brings you into the trees and treats you to incredible seasonal views. Sit on the deck to grill, view the fire in the chimera, or watch the stars as you recline in the lounge chairs or soak in the private hot tub. Steps away from Shenandoah National Park back country yet only 40 min. from historical sites in Charlottesville.
    Welcome to the Cair Paravel Farmstead and the DAWN TREADER...our renovated vintage Airstream. Our 32 ft. Airstream has everything you could ask for: a romantic getaway for two or an escape for a small family. The Dawn Treader is best for a couple but can can accommodate up to four adults. *LAYOUT: Please look at photo #22 in the photo stream to check out a diagram of the layout of the Dawn Treader. Contact us if your group is larger than two so we can discuss the arrangements. *SPACE: The master bedroom, accessible by a separate door or through the main cabin has a full bed, night stands, and storage for your garments. There is a full built-in wardrobe across from the bath that can house your larger garments and suitcases. The sofa in the main room folds out into a comfortable full bed and the dining nook can convert into an additional sleeping space. *CHILDREN: Please note that though child-friendly (Baby Bliss cloth baby chair, sippy cups, child's plates, Gerber Graduates eating utensils) the Dawn Treader is not child proof (a safety kit provided for your use). For your convenience a Pack N Play set-up and baby monitor are available for an additional charge. *WHAT IS THERE: Amenities include full gourmet kitchen, stainless steel pots & pans, plates, bowls mugs & flatware; good knives; bathroom with separate shower and standup bath, HD TV with local stations, docking station in the living room, Chimera fire pit, outdoor gas grill, 2.0 mile nature trail, shared seasonal salt water pool and year round hot tub and all of our 58 acre property to explore. *PRIVATE HOT TUB: The private seasonal hot tub is located on the north leg of the deck. This spa is set up once the nights are reliably above freezing. The private hot tub is usable as long as we have daytime temperatures in the 50's and the nighttime is not too cold. With the lower temperatures the heater can not keep up and it becomes a tepid tub rather than a hot tub. Of course we can not predict what the weather will be but if it is too chilly there is always the big Bullfrog spa a short walk away. *RATES: The posted standard rate of $125/night double occupancy. Weekends $125/night and we have a two night minimum. Additional guests are $25 per person. Rates may vary dependent upon season, holidays, and/or special events.

There will be critters, insects, and nocturnal visitors of all kinds. Keep the screened doors shut to minimize the number of insects entering the Airstream. We do everything we possibly can to minimize the visits of these creatures but it is part of the nature of being in the woods. For more information about our farm keep up with us on social media...friend.....Cair Paravel Farmstead.
    *There are many area attractions and activities- hiking in the Shenandoah National Park, visiting Monticello or Montpelier, following the Monticello Wine Trail or the Brew Ridge Trail, and checking out the work of Virginia Artisans in the local shop: Noon Whistle Pottery. We are close to both Charlottesville and Harrisonburg. For other activities and attractions check out our guidebook. If you are considering hiking take a look at Hiking Upward. The site has great maps and descriptions of the trails as wells as a great rating system.
  • Awesome people and a beautiful location. Whitt and his family were extremely welcoming and helpful. They offered to give a tour around the farm, but unfortunately time was scarce. Sleeping in an Airstream was fantastic. The caravan itself was clean and had everything necessary to cook, sleep and have a good time. Next to that, Whitt built a beautiful deck overlooking the forest, incl. a grill and fireplace. Concluding, if you're planning on discovering Shenandoah NP and its surroundings, consider staying at Whitt's awesome Airstream!

    Tim2015-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful experience staying in the Airstream. The trailer was in perfect condition and equipped with everything we needed, including cookies. Beautiful surroundings. Pool was impressively maintained given that it's in the middle of a forest. We opted in for the gourmet meals delivered by lawn tractor, and they were outstanding. Whitt and Martha and everyone else on the farm were super nice, including Tsuki the three legged dog. Bugs were sometimes mettlesome, but there's not much a host can do about that. Shenandoah park is a special place. You should totally get engaged there, like we did. But not to us, because we're engaged already.

    Seth2014-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • It did have everything we needed. Whitt was very kind ! AC worked well. It was what I would call glamorous camping!

    Morgan 2015-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a real gem - and so are the hosts. The airstream has everything you need and is really nicely furnished. Among other things, I really appreciated the good quality cookware (a result of having an ex-executive chef as a host, perhaps?) The hosts were very kind and accommodating and made everything smooth and enjoyable! They even gave us freshly baked cookies when we arrived. We'll definitely keep it in mind for future ventures.

    Gillian2014-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Whitt and Martha have the most incredible, one of a kind property - and the airstream is definitely a gem! My boyfriend and I enjoyed the unique setting which was perfect for a serene getaway. It is impressive how a full functioning kitchen can fit in the airstream and the hot tub was a lovely added touch. On top of that, Whitt provided some great suggestions for hikes in the area which was greatly appreciated. Definitely order some farm products for your stay and be sure to take the loop around the property. We will certainly be returning to stay with Whitt and Martha again!

    Mia2017-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a wonderful weekend in the Airstream at Cair Paravel Farm. It's a perfect place to make your base for hiking, brewery/winery touring and relaxing outdoors. The location is private and serene, the view of the stars at night can't be beat, and the Airstream is equipped with everything you need for a cookout and a peaceful night's rest.

    Carrie2017-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Man alive. This was one of my favorite places I have stayed in over 3 years. The most wonderful spot, amazingly friendly and accommodating hosts, resulting in a much needed dip back into a peaceful, wonderous mini adventure in the Virgina sticks. This is some extremely calming and inviting land. You have thrown some fuel back on my fire to get the tiny home built and to venture deeper into the wooded lands! Thank you both so much for the stories and hospitality. I look forward to a warm weather excursion now that I know where you be! Mahalo :)

    The "Treehouse" is an A-frame cabin sitting on a hillside, surrounded by trees. When you are sitting in the house or on its huge deck, it feels as if you are perched in the trees. It is a one-room cabin, with loft and large exterior deck. The first floor is an open area, with living room, full kitchen and eating area, and bathroom. The second floor is a loft, accessible by ladder. There is a double bed on the loft and two double futons and one single (kid-sized) futon on the main level.
    The Treehouse is located in the "Shenandoah Gap" community on a private mountain in Shenandoah, VA. As a Treehouse guest, you have full access to the Shenandoah Gap river access area, as well as to all common areas of the mountain (i.e., trails accessible off the road).
  • Stayed here for a long weekend with my boyfriend and we had a blast! Sally was very accommodating and gave us lots of information on the area and fun things to do. The house was cozy and clean with a beautiful view. Definitely recommend if you're looking to stay in the area.

  • Sally is,an exceptional host, a pleasant surprise for our first Air Bnb experience. The Treehouse is small but very clean, well stocked and welcoming. Loved sitting on the deck in the morning and evening! We opted to sleep on a futon rather than climb the ladder to the sleeping loft. Good to have options. Highly recommend this cabin and host!

  • We had a great stay at the treehouse, it was very peaceful so we got lots of relaxing in which was just what I needed at 9 months pregnant ! I loved the hemmock and the beautiful view we had!

    Rosy2016-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Our weekend at the Treehouse was everything I hoped for. The cabin is one big open space with a loft and the bed is very comfortable. We enjoyed some throwback movies and there are board games. The deck offers very beautiful scenery and there are so many stars speckled in the sky at nighttime! If you decide to hike local, its well worth it. We followed one of the routes Sally provided that led us up the mountain the Treehouse sits on. The hike was brutal (this is where we learned, we are some out of shape city kids!) but so worth it! There is a big fire pit that we didn't use (after hiking, nobody wanted to walk down the steps then have to climb back up) but there is also a small table top fire pit on the deck we used that was great. All in all, this was a wonderful weekend and am so glad I found this treehouse. Everyone should experience a weekend away with no cell phone service and good friends to join you.

  • The treehouse was a great place to stay. We especially enjoyed the outdoor spaces of the deck and bonfire area. Nice secluded area with lots of trees. Inside the treehouse was comfortable and we appreciated that it was stocked with some extra entertainment options for when it rained for part of a day. Sally was helpful in coordinating everything and gave tips on things to do in the area.

    Mark2016-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • The treehouse is a unique and lovely place to stay, run by a superb host and exceptionally well-appointed. Highly recommended.

    Peter2016-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • The treehouse is a great place to get away from it all. If you like hiking in the Shenandoah National Park, it's an excellent base.

    Erica2017-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at the treehouse. The treehouse is nicely situated at the bottom of a hill and close to the river for tubing etc. Sally was prompt in answering any questions we had and provided a great welcome package that very clearly outlined what are the nearby interesting locations and activities. Luray Caverns and Shenandoah National Park (Skyline drive) was a great experience. And, we LOVED the trip to the nearby George Washington Forest which has a nice, completely secluded creek. We hope to return again soon!

    Cozy, private one room cottage (with bathroom), run by a loving, easy-going, non-judging family. Cottage measures 12' x 24' (total of 288sq. feet). Very relaxed environment. Max price we will charge is $60.00 a night. Ask for details if you have more than 3 people. Wake up happy.
    The Rubys Rest cottage is located in the back yard of our property. The cottage is one room. The cottage has a full size bed and a bunk bed (bed space for 4 people). We also have a child's cot and an adult size cot for a filth person. We have squeezed in more than 5 people before, if needed. The cottage has clean sheets and towels, along with a mini refrigerator, coffee maker, small tv (no cable or local channels), and dvd player (about a dozen or so of my favorite dvds are available). LOTS of interesting books to read. There is a window AC unit for the spring-fall and baseboard electric heat, which does a great job of keeping the cottage warm even on the coldest of nights. The bathroom is spacious and has a stand in shower, with hot and cold water. shampoo and soap provided. There is a covered deck attached to the cottage, with an outdoor sink and an outdoor shower. We have a chicken coop in the back corner of the yard with 6 chickens. We have four cats. Also, we share the backyard with my parents (their small house is in the back corner of our yard), they have a sweet dog named Norman. We have been renting the cottage out for about 8 years and enjoy meeting the wonderful people who stay with us. We are super easy going and will be sure to make you feel at ease here. All smiles - no worries.
    We live in Damascus, on a dead end road, with very friendly neighbors. When you arrive, simply park in the driveway and walk thru the car port and into the backyard. The cottage will be in view.
  • We had a lovely stay at Ruby's Rest over Labor Day weekend while visiting to do the VA Creeper. The cottage was quaint and had everything we needed. The chickens in the yard were cool and we enjoyed meeting "Buggy" the dog. Shower was hot and A/c worked super well (helpful for those of us who are hot-natured). Beds were comfy, although downsizing from a king to a full size bed was a little tricky for my husband and I and for taller people it could present a challenge. I actually slept in the bottom bunk and it was REALLY comfortable :) Hosts were gone most of the time we were there but we met Mrs. B for a few minutes and she was super friendly and helpful. Definitely would recommend this spot!

    Lena2015-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful experience. We enjoyed the Virginia Creeper Trail and the town of Damascus. Everyone was so friendly. The highlight was the Ruby's Rest cottage. It was such a delight complete with a fantastic book selection, inspiring photographs and in a very picturesque setting. The hosts were so welcoming.

    Mike and Helen2016-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • I've used Ruby's Rest in the past and will continue to do so. It's clean, cozy and dog friendly.

    Joddi2017-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Jeffrey and his family were amazing hosts! They were wonderfully warm and welcoming people, and gave us plenty of great ideas for local spots to check out (White Top at sunset is a must). They definitely made the trip one of our best yet - can't say enough good things about them! The cottage was perfectly quaint and cozy, our dogs were comfortable as were we. Damascus is a great little town with a perfect mix of relaxation and easy-access trails. Marvelous trip!

    Keith2016-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place was amazing! We didn't know how beautiful it was going to be. I really wish we could have stayed in this mountain town for a few more nights.

    Nathan2016-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • Ruby’s Rest was magical! Such a great get away! Provides easy access to the national forest. An even easier access to escape from the craziness of life. Love the people, the animals, and the nature that this place offers!

    Andrew2017-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • The house was nice and cozy with nice photos of Jeffrey's travels! We used the house has a night stop over towards Asheville, the house is very quite we had a great sleep!!

    A private studio-style apartment in a renovated Mill built in 1856, with wood beams and rustic plank floors surrounded by farms and vineyards in the quiet countryside of the Shenandoah Valley.
    A private studio-style apartment in a renovated Mill built in 1856, with wood beams and rustic plank floors surrounded by farms and vineyards in the quiet countryside of the Shenandoah Valley. Only 10 minutes from I-81 with easy access to Harrisonburg (20 min), Staunton (25 min), and Charlottesville (40 min).
    The neighborhood is wonderful for long walks or bike rides. Ask about fly-fishing on the stream by our farm.
  • I absolutely enjoyed Amy as my host and the restored mill was even more charming than I excepted. The location was quaint and picturesque. The restored mill was extremely roomy and comfortable. It was a great stay for some R&R. Amy made breakfast in the morning and it was so delicious.

    Heather2014-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • It was easy to contact Amy, which I appreciated. The room was ready and welcoming. The location is a little busier than I expected and I wasn't expecting the owners to be living downstairs (although they were private and gave us our privacy, so there were no problems).

    Ruth2014-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great experience. We didn't get to meet Amy, but the "apartment" was even better than it looked in the pictures! Really fun place, they've clearly put a ton of work into it. Nice and quiet location. Amy even left us homemade bread and jam. We would love to stay again.

    Sam2015-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is an idyllic spot for a weekend getaway! The mill is wonderfully arranged - Amy has a beautiful aesthetic, and we enjoyed using all the different spaces in the loft. The kitchen is fully stocked and made for great cooking too! The setting is lovely and bucolic and within easy distance to hiking and wine tasting, etc. Amy was a responsive and thoughtful host. We can't wait to come back!

    Cassady2014-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful experience, for those looking for an opportunity to view life a little differently. Great fresh eggs for breakfast and a well-equipped kitchen with a rustic flare.

    Nancy2017-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amy and Patrick are awesome. The unit was so nicely decorated and comfortable AND they were excellent, friendly hosts. I especially loved the clap clap of horses going by that we could hear when we opened up the door/window in the morning. We'll definitely be back!

    Christina2013-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I came to stay at Amy's place for a weekend getaway, our first since we had our daughter. The place was beautiful and Amy was a wonderful host. She greeted us and made sure we had everything that we needed. We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the cute winery close by as well as the ambience of the farm right near Amy's house. Such a wonderful vacation to relax and unwind! I can't recommend this place enough!

    Elizabeth2015-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • It was such a pleasure to stay with Amy and Patrick! They were extremely friendly and caring hosts, interested in what we did and where we came, sharing with us vegetable from their garden - including tips for preparation -, presenting their farm, inviting us to meet their friends etc. In our flat - the complete first floor of the old mill, lovingly decorated by Amy in vintage style - we had a lot of space and were really comfortable. Finally, we stayed longer than we had planned. Just a wonderful place to enjoy, to relax - and to return!

  • Great, great location! In two days we only got in the car once. Otherwise, we walked to all of our meals/activities and also enjoyed taking long runs. The apartment has everything you need and the private entrance, balcony, and off street parking were nice perks. Bill was very thoughtful and left us champagne for our anniversary in addition to the great selection of breakfast fixings. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Richmond!

    Brooke2013-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed in this airbnb twice now and would recommend it. Location is great with lots of restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Art museum and other attractions are also close and the neighborhood is wonderful.

    christine2014-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! This was our first Airbnb stay and we couldn't have been more pleased. The upstairs apartment was every bit as private as advertised, more warm and welcoming than we could have anticipated. I really enjoyed the artwork and the view over the back garden patio where the birds were holding a convention that kept us company during breakfast. Bill and his wife went out of their way to provide links for entertainment options in walking distance after we let him know we hoped to explore on foot. When we were arriving later than expected, he called ahead for us to our restaurant choice (without our asking) to check if the kitchen would still be open after we arrived (they weren't and we ended up at an even better dinner option -- Six Burner was just a short walk away and served us the best meal we've ever eaten out together!) The fridge was so well stocked we would not have had to leave if we hadn't wanted to explore. We enjoyed the beautiful berries, yogurt, bagels and granola for breakfast out on the sunny balcony. We left for our next destination well-rested and well-fed but almost two hours late because we were so contented to take our time where we were! We'll be making the same 95 drive again and look forward to breaking the trip here whenever we can tack on the extra time to enjoy another night in the fan. Thank you Bill and Lissa!

    Amy2011-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Bill and Lissa were excellent hosts again. We love the apartment and its location in the Fan. We look forward to our next weekend visit to Richmond.

  • Richmond is a fantastic and vibrant city and our stay with Bill made it all the better. The little apartment is huge and offers a great amount of space to stay in for a visit with a lovely bedroom and small kitchenette. Definitely one of the real treats of airbnb, Bill was extremely welcoming as well, offering a huge amount of great advice and just being friendly. I'd look for any excuse to visit Richmond and Bill again!

    Gemma2013-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is my second time staying at Bill's place and it was grand. I so love the apartment and the location. The first day I walked around the museums and the second day I walked to the cathedral and the VCU area. I will never stay in a hotel in Richmond again as long as Bill's place is available. The place is great; the bed is great; the fridge has morning breakfast treats; the balcony over the garden is great.

    Mary2014-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I have just come back from a trip that included three nights at Bill and Lissa's place. It was our second time staying there, and we enjoyed it every bit as much as the first. Bill and Lissa are gracious, generous hosts, and the apartment is as comfortable and convenient as one could wish. I look forward to more visits in the future.

    Merrill2012-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Bill was very kind and welcoming. I wanted to show my mom around the city and he was very helpful with suggestions about places to eat and visit. A beautiful house within walking distance of everything in The Fan.

The cabin is "unplugged" please enjoy a break from wifi. Perched on 50 rustic acres in Ivy, Virginia, seven miles west of Charlottesville and seven miles east of Crozet, Bailey's Retreat offers scenic serenity for nature lovers, artists, writers, sportsmen or city slickers who simply want to unwind.

  • We loved this cabin as a getaway for our "babymoon." It is cozy, quiet, and romantic. You feel like you're miles away from civilization and yet only 20 minutes from downtown Charlottesville. Check in and out was a breeze and my wife was so pleased to find that there was a stash of creamer in the cabinet to go along with her coffee. Would stay there again.

    Justin2017-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Very easy to book and get a hold of the owners. Very very clean and just quaint! The views are amazing! Close to hiking and vineyards and breweries and downtown Charlottesville! We met Bill on our last day and he was super nice! Definitely recommend this to anybody. They have several cabins and he brought up idea of family reunion visit! Great idea! Romantic getaway was nice too:)

    Lenny2016-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first time staying in a cabin and had an awesome experience. Bill greeted us when we arrived and provided us with a lot of useful information about the area. The hosts provided us with everything that we needed even stuff we didn't think of bringing. Overall an amazing experience and highly recommend it.

    Darshit2017-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was as described and in an even more idyllic than we could have imagined. The host's were extremely accommodating and when above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. Will definitely suggest this location to friends and hope to make a return visit if we are ever in town again!

    Adam2015-12-23T00:00:00Z

  • Absolutely perfect spot. Cozy, secluded and beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It's nice to head downtown Charlottesville, but we always wanted to go back to the cabin.

    Lars2013-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • If unique is what you seek, this is a 'must visit' place. Within minutes of the UVA campus, this rustic cabin is in a setting so beautiful and isolated that you will not believe its closeness to the city of Charlottesville and several local area wineries. The website photos offer a clear picture of this one-of-a-kind log cabin. If you desire Marriott-like accommodations, this experience is not for you -- but if you want to have memories that last, this is a place you must consider visiting.

    Ed2014-05-19T00:00:00Z

  • Fiza&Toni were extremely considerate and nice hosts. Communication was easy, they answered questions immediately and were always willing to help. The apartment looks as described. Very clean, new, lovely interior! They provided many snacks, basic food and many toiletries. We really enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend this apartment. Thank you, fiza&toni for the perfect time.

  • Fiza 's apartment was exactly as described, in basement but very clean and perfectly equipped for a 4 people family. Fiza has stuff to eat, make coffee and beauty products in case you forgot some - quite convenient - We did not get to meet her but she gave us directions and was welcoming. The area is a 10 minute drive to the Washington main sites - the mall - so very quick to start visiting in the morning. We recommend her place for a family or 2 people. Thanks for this great stay Fred

    Frédérique2015-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Fiza and Tony were phenomenal hosts and their place was perfect. Great location for our family trip to D.C. It was super clean and their attention to detail was spot on. We will definitely stay there again when we visit D.C. again!

    Holly2017-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • very nice place only issue we had was being in the basement was the low ceilings, and being 6 foot tall and my daughter at 5 foot 8 lol was some spots we had to watch the head room. but very clean and very nice spot and tons of extra towels which is always a issue at the airbnb made up for a couple of head bumps.

    dean2017-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Nice cozy place. Tastefully done. Very clean and has all amenities. Lightening fast check-in and check-out process. Worked perfect for my stay.

    Rahul2017-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • This was a fantastic stay in a phenomenal basement apartment. The location is great and the interior was very neat.

    Andrew2016-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time at Fiza's apartment in Arlington. It's incredibly close to downtown Washington and it was the first time I've stayed at a place with keyless entry. Wow, it was very convenient not having to arrange times to meet for that key. It was clean, stocked with nice things for breakfast, and had plenty of parking nearby. I would definitely recommend staying at Fiza's apartment for anyone traveling through DC. One of word of warning for tall people: it's a very nice basement apartment with low ceilings in a few places, so watch your head.

    Eric2016-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • The host is very friendly and nice. Room is clean and the snacks are also good! There is a guild on the table which is very clear and helpful. Thank you!

    Nothing says it better than one of my latest guest. " Christmas 2017 aboard the GiaMaria was truly peace on earth! The experience was more than we could have imagined. We wanted to be together with both of our sons who are active duty Army... we had a lovely home cooked dinner together and the GiaMaria was the only place that met our needs on short notice... ever a memory to be cherished. Thank you! Bret and Cyleste----Lakeland, FL Ross----Ft. Lee, VA Hudson----FT Leonard Wood, MO
    The 50' Chris Craft, GiaMaria, is a hybrid idea turned reality that came into my mind as I was exploring a way to provide an adventure for guests at a reasonable price, even for those who would be staying aboard only for one night. And so, I built the boat so that looking at the stars and hearing a Hoot Owl from the upper deck, would in my opinion beat hands down watching another dumbed down TV program. Also, my plan was for the GiaMaria to offer a total living space, where you can cook a full gourmet meal and dance in the main saloon. She is not just a place to stay where you don't know who is in the next room to you, but a safe and quiet place where you can relax, stay warm or cool depending on the seasons and still get away from that "beaten path." For all practicable purposes, you will be experiencing living in a "tiny house" but it won't feel like it because the Giamaria is really quite roomy. So, if you have ever wondered what living in less space, or what living in a houseboat would be like, then this is for you. Because you get not only a great place to enjoy your stay, but you get to experience both life styles. This vessel is a great addition to the greater Richmond area too because of her unique location, and also her close proximity to the cities of Richmond, Petersburg, Hopewell and Colonial heights. And something else that is unique has to do with me, your host. And that is, I am the longest surviving USCG licensed James River tugboat captain, and in my retirement years in addition to building and offering the Giamaria, I became an amateur historian, writer, and a lover of the hundreds of species of wildlife in our area. Even where the GiaMaria is berthed it is unique, because she is moored alongside a private dock, and in a remote oxbow of the James River where commercial vessels don't rock and roll us, or scare our game, or destroy our beautiful shorelines. In truth, we are remote without being remote because we are only nine miles from the Capital of Virginia. Yet the only approach to the Richmond Yacht Basin other than by water (or helicopter) is through the beautiful, scenic, and well kept Richmond National Battlefield Park. It is an area where many species of wildlife live and can appear at any time or place along the roadway, so please be careful when driving. The road which is about a mile long has a speed limit of 25 MPH and follows earthworks that were hand dug by Union soldiers during the Civil War . At the end of the road and straight ahead, a walking path will lead you to Fort Brady (named for Matthew Brady the celebrated Civil War Photographer) which overlooks the James River. It is a magical spot well worth every minute you will spend there. And only a few yards away and to your right is a coded gate that secures a couple of beautiful farms and the marina entrance. As you descend the hill, the sign reads 41/2 miles per hour. It is not just to control speed, but because we want you to take a moment and enjoy the beautiful view and the historic space that you are entering as you approach the marina. The GiaMaria is a 50' houseboat, and what has surprised every single guest that has stayed aboard, is how roomy and comfortable she is. As her owner and someone who has spent a lifetime on boats, I very well know how charming but uncomfortable some boats can be no matter their size. And so, my number one goal as I set out to redesign and rebuild this vessel was to make it as comfortable as your home, and also highly functional. And if what my guests have had to say about it is true, then I did accomplish this goal. And not only did I want to build in easy living, but my plan also included locating the GiaMaria in a safe, seclude and picturesque marina. I therefore chose Richmond Yacht Basin to be her new home. It is a place where my guests would have an opportunity to cruise, fish, play or stay aboard in one of the most beautiful settings to be found in Eastern Virginia. It is not the kind of marina where all boats are necessarily stacked one beside the other, or where deck shoes are required, but a place with lots of local color because of the people who inhabit the marina, the working boatyard and the wilderness just across the river. Richmond Yacht Basin, a place that I have come to cherish, is a small, quiet and cozy family owned jewel, and it is only 15 minutes or less from downtown Richmond by way of (Osborne Turnpike) an old country road. The road itself is also unique because as you reach a point on a hill just before entering Richmond you will experience a beautiful view of the downtown, yet you will still be traveling past a well kept farm. But back at the marina and within walking/jogging/cycling distance there is the Richmond National Battlefield Park, a magnificent Henrico County owned park at Osborne Landing with a Bass Master's Classic landing for launching boats and a separate kayak/canoe launch dock and a wonderful playground for children complete with toilet facilities. And it is all free. We are also adjacent to one of the busiest and most scenic bike trails anywhere in Virginia (The Virginia Capital Trail which runs from Richmond to Williamsburg) and on any given weekend hundreds of cyclists peddle through the park near the marina or on the trail as individuals, couples or on club outings. The historic James River will be your "front yard" where sea going tugs and ships travel sometimes on a daily basis, but of course not through "our front yard". The GiaMaria rests in only four feet of water at dockside, and it is protected from storms by a wild and beautiful island on the opposite shore. And if you like history, there is no spot in the entire United States that can offer so much in such a small space. You will be onsite where Powhatan and his daughter Pocahontas spent much of their lives at Arrohateck, as did her husband John Rolfe. And just around the river's bend you can experience Henricus Park (named for Prince Henry, the eldest son of King James I) and the second English Virginia settlement in America. Henricus is a re-created historical adventure park that is well worth visiting and it is similar in many ways to the Jamestown Historical Park. Our area is also the place where Benedict Arnold sank our Colonial fleet as it rested on anchor almost within sight of our marina once our patriots had declared war on England in order to gain our independence. And just up the road in Church Hill, Patrick Henry gave his famous "give me liberty or give me death" speech. Civil War battles were fought here on Chafin's farm while Union Ironclads like the Monitor and Galena fought unsuccessfully while trying to pass Drewery's Bluff (the confederate naval academy) and hoping to subdue the confederate General Robert E. Lee. Think names like Captain John Smith( Jamestown), Patrick Henry( "Give me liberty or give me death") and US Presidents George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, John Tyler and William Henry Harrison. Peter Jefferson(Thomas' father) lived here before moving to Monticello in the Albermarle as did the 4th Chief Justice of the United States, John Marshall. Generals during the Revolutionary War, like Washington (American), LaFayette (French), Arnold and Cornwallis (English), and Kosciuszko (Polish), Washington's "accomplished military architect" as well as Civil War Generals like Grant and Lee were also here. All of these giants spent considerable time here or lived here as did many other well known personalities throughout our history. In modern times people like the Honorable Governor of Virginia, L. Douglas Wilder, grew up and lived just down the road in Churchill and became the first black governor of Virginia and in the United States. And the late and much loved singer Jimmy Dean chose his wife, his yacht, (The Big Bad John), and this area as his playground and also to make it his home. Fortunately for us today, Jimmy Dean's beautiful widow and well known singer, Donna Meade Dean Stevens has been very successful in her own right while reviving The Old Dominion Barn Dance, a Virginia Treasure that was broadcast in the 40's and 50's throughout much of the country and even worldwide to our servicemen and women who were serving overseas during those years. But the area is not all about famous people and events. Wildlife abounds here. Bald Eagles nest just across the channel as do Great Blue Herons, Little Green Herons and Ospreys among many other birds and land creatures. And Osborne Landing which is only a mile away has become a sports person's paradise. Whether it is fishing, hunting, skiing, paddle boarding, canoeing, canoe sailing, small boat sailing, kayaking, playing on personal watercraft, hiking the beautiful and well planned paths that will take you down by the riverside, checking out the battlefields, hunting for relics or what ever suits your fancy, you will find it here. In fact, there is only one word to describe the docking spot that the GiaMaria enjoys, and that word is UNIQUE. One more thing. I understand that anything is possible, but our area is UNIQUE in another way too. We have not suffered from many serious storms, earthquakes, fires, droughts or blizzards as do other parts of the US. We experience the four seasons, and it would be very unusual for any one season to have severe weather that would last more than a few days at a time. We truly are blessed to live in such a beautiful historic countryside that is laced with meandering back roads that cut through ancient forest or small well kept farms and villages. So..., what are you waiting for? Come and take the weight off and absorb the excitement (or the solitude) that the Crossroads of North American History has to offer. Note: Check out the online video: "On Board With The Henrico Marine Patrol" (June 8, 2015) and you will get a birds eye view concerning the beauty and care of this ancient waterway that we as users take very seriously. As the longest living professionally licensed United States Coast Guard Captain on the James River, and the first Maritime Commander of the Virginia Defense Force, I was honored to give opening comments, mid-video comments and closing comments about our beautiful waterway.
    Whether you just want to stay aboard and enjoy the boat, or experience all the area has to offer, we can help you find your way. There are wonderful upscale restaurants with great views of both the river and the city in Churchill Hill, Shockoe Slip,("the bottom") or Rocketts Landing. Restaurants such as Millie's, The Tobacco Company, Conch Republic or The Boat House are all only minutes from the GiaMaria. And if you like craft beer, you have come to the right place. Richmond has become a "major" craft beer location. But we also have ( kinda/sorta) in our backyard, the "Lilly Pad". Actually it is next door to Osborne landing. It's a great little spot along the shore where you can have a relaxed evening with locals over a beer, or a delicious meal, and sometimes they have live music, but it is like that proverbial box of chocolates, "you never know what you're gonna get". Richmond also has great museums, sporting events, Class III and class IV whitewater rafting that will carry you right through the city. There are numerous theaters, places of worship, and colleges and universities. County and National parks are all around us, and only a short drive up or down the road is Petersburg, Charlottesville, Williamsburg, Jamestown, or Yorktown as well as Bush Gardens, Kings Dominion and outlet malls. In fact, there is so much to see and do here in our area, that it would require a team to put it all together in tour guide format. There is truly something here for everyone, and we can help you find it. Note: Internet is not always availablein this area or on the GiaMaria, but we do have a wonderful new library within a few country miles from the boat with free internet.
  • Ronald was a fabulous host! His boat is one of the coziest places I've ever visited. It is perfect for relaxing and to have long walks in the green. But you are fast in the city by car,too. App. 15 minutes to Cary St. One of the placed to see in Richmond, with cute little shops, cafes and restaurants . Thanks for the great hint Captain Ron! I recommend Captain Ron and his houseboat to everyone who is looking for a special journey with the most exciting and coolest host ever. Thank you!

    Daniel2016-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • The kids and I had a wonderful time. Highly recommend.

    Selena2017-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • As much as we loved Ron, and felt he was a sweet and gracious host, the boat was not quite as the pictures suggested. It was in a bit of dis-repair and had a lower quality of design than we expected. The dock itself too, lacked privacy and had a lot of construction happening, and lacked the 'peaceful river' stay we were looking for. None-the-less, it was a novel stay and we had fun!

    Laura2017-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Ronald was very quick to respond when I was in need of a vacation spot. He was very inviting and cooked me a burger when I arrived. I love the marina where the boat is kept, great vibes all around good live music coming from the Lilly Pad restaurant next door. The house boat is hand built by Ronald himself, it is in immaculate condition and is very inviting. It has laundry, a spacious shower, a full kitchen with a gas stove, living, TV, and a big bed with a temper pedicure mattress. This place is like a five-star hotel except it has a private roof deck where you can enjoy your meals, catch some rays or just watch the live band across the channel some evenings. You will be amazed how lovely this spot is, it really is a blessing in disguise. Don't miss the chance to stay In Ronald's house boat!

    Drew2015-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Captain Ron was most hospitable and the Houseboat was a unique and fun way to spend our last night in Richmond after a week of traveling on the East Coast. We arrived on the heels of a big rain storm, and the power went out in the entire region for a few hours-- Captain Ron kindly brought us some cold drinks and an extra bag of ice to help weather the storm. We loved spending the next morning (the sun came out) sitting on the deck relaxing and reading. Great place, great host.

    Bill2015-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay! Captain Ron is very welcoming, and the boat and setting were amazing. We had everything we needed, and we were able to just relax. If we come back to Richmond for another overnight stay we will definitely try to book here again!

    Brian2016-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • Complete rest and relaxation wrapped up in true Southern Hospitality! Ron is a great host who is friendly and very considerate of his guests. The houseboat is an excellent floating home complete with a very comfortable bed, large shower with hot water, a cute completely furnished galley, and a cozy livingroom. Ron gave us a tour and explained how everything worked. He even provides steps from the boat to the dock that come in handy at low tide. His photographs are beautiful and give a very accurate picture of the area. Very serene, full of nature, and views of boats on the river. Relax on the deck and let your problems float away. If you don't feel like cooking, stroll over to the Lilly Pad for some good food, drinks, and conversation. Thank you Ron and Ruth. We will be back!

    Bob2015-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Ron was a great host. He was in contact with us and met us at the boat. He demonstrated the few peculiarities of staying on a houseboat. He gave us dining suggestions. We went to the Conch Republic. Good affordable food. The boat sits on a quiet part of the James River. Although there are other boaters there, it felt quite private. Everyone was friendly. When we woke in the morning, we took our bikes through a bit of the nearby park.

  • My boyfriend and I wanted to get away from DC for the weekend. This cottage was the perfect place to do so. Far removed from the main road and over looking a very scenic mountain view, this cottage was quite quaint. We arrived on a Friday evening when it was already dark; the cottage was a bit difficult to find, but once we got there we were pleasantly surprised! The next day we headed to the nearest grocery store to buy basic brunch essentials and we made pancakes and eggs in a fully stocked kitchen. We played with the farm kittens in the sun room while drinking tea. Later that evening, we met Jennifer who came over to help us light the fire in the fire place as it was going to get pretty cold. She was very pleasant! She had recommended a restaurant near town for us to go to. It was a great recommendation and we enjoyed a nice romantic meal together! The next day, Jennifer told us to take our time and not rush for check out. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to get away from the bustle of the city and just relax. Jennifer is a wonderful host and very accommodating.

    Amandine2013-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived in the cottage very late in the evening. When we get in we were really surprised! The cottage is bigger than we imaged, we just love it very much! The decorations and the style around are really impressive. We had a sweet evening staying in Fairaview. We'll definitely come again if there's a chance.

    Xinling2015-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage at Fair View was absolutely breathtaking! The pictures don't do this place justice! With booking on such a short notice Jennifer was very accommodating and always a text away! The cottage was fully stocked with everything we could need and the grounds were breathtaking! Not to mention the baby peacocks were such a treat to see! Absolutely will be staying here again!

    Sarah2015-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable farmhouse that is collocated with a historic manor house that operates as a traditional B and B. Easy check-in and out and constant communication with the host, Jennifer. Great views of the distant Shenandoah Mountains and central location to numerous hikes...Crabtree Falls are a must see! Multiple wineries are also nearby.

    Rachel2017-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Loved this cozy little home. A little wear and tear, but nice place to get away.

    Dan2017-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • This place is fantastic! Jennifer is a wonderful host...kind, considerate, and helpful, and the sweet animals around the property make the place even warmer...they're quite friendly and entertaining. We truly enjoyed our stay at the cottage and exploring the surrounding area, and we actually found the water pressure in the shower to be just fine. We definitely hope to be back sometime in the future.

    Andrea2014-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely not what we expected, this beautiful picture perfect farm house is just what the doctor ordered, thought we were in a postcard with the beautiful scenery, Highly recommend to all my friends and family, The Cottage was perfect!

    Scott2014-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place is so lovely! Completely picturesque and charming. It was the perfect long weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of DC. There's good hiking not too far away, awesome hot tub for watching the sunset, beautiful horses and peacocks, rolling hills, and wonderful weather (not too hot, not too cold). It even came with two adorable and sweet little beagles who roam the property! We loved them. They were the icing on the cake. Jennifer is clearly an expert hostess, leaving out plenty of towels, robes, great pots and pans, coffee, tea, hershey kisses, guides, and even a nice bottle of wine. THANK YOU! The only thing is that we came just the two of us and our dog, and we had so much room to spare! (two bedrooms in fact) So, while this time we wanted a weekend away just the two of us, we'll likely bring friends sometime. Last thing, the screen porch is awesome! We spent a lot of time out there. Thanks again for everything. We hope to visit again soon, Paige, Rafael, and Biscuit

  • This place and Tamara are both awesome. Great location in Richmond. The house is super cute and looks like it was decorated by the team of HGTV's Fixer Upper. Tamara's touches are simple and considerate, with plenty of tea and snacks to last us days. My wife and I would stay here again in a heartbeat if we weren't moving to Richmond.

    Jim2016-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous home, very comfortable and easy stay. Parking is easy right in front of the house, and easy walk downtown. Highly recommend!

    Mary2017-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • This was the perfect location for my husband, toddler, and me to stay for the Richmond marathon. It's close to a fun part of downtown (walkable) and the house is decorated and organized beautifully. It is indeed small but it was all the space we needed for a great price.

    Jenny2016-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very welcoming and inviting place. Beautifully decorated, cozy and clean. Great location.

    Deborah2016-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very cute, cozy space and well organized to maximize the small space. House was a little cold for our newborn, despite turning the heat up five degrees. One amenity recommendation would be to provide some Keurig coffee cups for the machine.

    Amber2017-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Super cozy location and a great way to experience Richmond. All our communications with the hosts were pleaseant and clear. The space was clean and accommodating for two travelers. We really liked the Richmond accents in the home, which made our trip more unique. The home is cozy in all aspects, including the local neighborhood; be prepared to hear cars drive by throughout the night on the gravel drive outside the bedroom. Probably not the best choice for light sleepers, but we didn’t have any issues. Overall a wonderful place to stay in Richmond.

    Jennifer2017-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Tamara's Cozy Row home was better than described. While my husband and I only stayed one night, we easily managed to enjoy Richmond's offerings and have a relaxing evening at the home. The space was spotless, beautifully decorated & close to breweries and restaurants. We'll be sure to visit Cozy Row again next time we are in VA.

    Nicole2017-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks so much for being a great host! We loved the decor of the place and it worked great for our weekend! Easy to get to from the highway and super convenient parking!!

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion." ~ Henry David Thoreau
    From University Blvd there is only 1 traffic light. It's a beautiful SHORT drive up the mountain. A great quiet place to study but close to everything on Wards Road!
  • Clean, cozy, and delightful! A highly recommended little cottage for anyone looking to escape the busyness of the day to day. Lisa is responsive, attentive, and caring. Overall, a wonderful stay!

    Korrin2014-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Oh, the Chestnut Cottage and the basement living area were awesome. Fluffy towels, coffee, creamer, snacks, everything I could need. I felt very safe there, and there were lots of 'tourist' brochures telling me what all there is to do in Lynchburg. There is Wi-Fi, cable TV, and a great stocked kitchen. Thanks Steve & Lisa - wonderful Hosts!

    Dee2014-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much for such a wonderful place to retreat. I loved it! Hope to come back again soon!

    Linda2013-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa's cottage is the perfect place for a peaceful retreat while visiting the Shenandoah valley. Everything is spotless and tasteful and the cottage has its own quarters in the main house, with a private bathroom and living/dining area. It's the little details that will make your stay special : soft linens, an electric blanket and modern appliances in the kitchen. Highly recommended!

    Vanessa2013-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • My husband & I were looking for a quaint place for a relaxing getaway and the Tiny Cottage was exactly what we were looking for. When we arrived, we found that Lisa left the lamps on and some light music playing. Lisa provided the bed linens, towels, bottled water, and some breakfast items which was more than we ever expected. She was very friendly and welcoming! We're already talking about our next visit to the Tiny Cottage.

    Ashley2013-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa & Steve are great! So hospitable and friendly. Loved the space and looking forward to next time.

    Trey2013-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa was a wonderful host for my Parents. They enjoyed every bit of their stay at the Cottage and even said they would rather stay in a Cottage than a hotel any time that they traveled! I will recommend this place to my friends and family that come to visit Lynchburg every time now! I am so thankful for Lisa and her hospitality!

    Kristin2012-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Lisa's little cabin in the woods. I got in late on our first night, so I did not get to meet her; regardless, we felt very well taken care of and loved the setting and the privacy of this beautiful place. We are so grateful for Steve and Lisa for opening up their little mountain treasure to us. Oh - and she provided us with breakfast goodies! What a treat! Nowhere else I have stayed has the host paid such attention to detail with such kindness and thought. Thank you, Lisa! We hope to stay with you again sometime! Maybe I will get to meet you then!

  • It was a very short visit (arrived late at night and left early in the morning) but Julie went above and beyond to facilitate my schedule and make me feel at home. I didn't get a chance to use the information she has available in the room about anything you ever wanted to know about Washington, but there was a lot! She even offer me a Smart Card for the public transportation system. Thank you! I'll definitely go back.

    Alexander2014-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Julie's home was perfect for my 15 year old son and myself. Clean and cozy with a refrigerator and microwave. Excellent shower (great water pressure.) Nice clean neighborhood. But most of all we felt as if we were coming home every day after our sight seeing. Julie was a great and informative host.

    William2015-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Julie was a wonderful host. As this was my first time using airbnb, she was very swift in responding my queries that i had in planning my trip as well as questions about Washington DC. She even allow me to use her address so that i could get my CityPass which i ordered online to be mailed to her place. When i reach there, the place was as beautiful as it was in the pictures. She had a lot of brochures about DC and even a map dawn for the nearby eateries or convenient store that is located near her home. There is also a big map of the subway system in the room which comes in handy. If there is any questions that you have, you can just ask her and she will be more than willing to answer you or even give you some suggestions. The location is about 45 mins by public transport to the city centre and i would say it was pretty convenient and not troublesome at all. There is always a nice surprise waiting in the fridge whenever we got home. Her family was very accommodating and we even had fun playing with her daughter Alexis and their Cat Meenu. I would highly recommend anyone who is visiting Washington DC to stay at her place and If i have a chance to visit DC again, i will definitely stay at her place. Overall, i had a wonderful stay in DC!

    Ruben2012-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Our best Airbnb experience! Julie and her family are great. We had a very warm welcome in her house. Everything was very clean. We also could share good moment with her. I definitely recommend this place.

    Benjamin2014-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Julie is a wonderful host. Very welcoming and accommodating. In fact, her entire family (including a cute cat) was friendly and nice to us. The place is just as in the pictures (or better). Highly recommend!

    Min2014-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • This was my first Airbnb experience and it was absolutely wonderful! Julie is so accommodating and is a wonderful hostess. The room is sooo comfortable and clean! It's a quick bus ride to the metro and then from there to wherever you are trying to go (I went to Maryland and DC). I also loved coming back to the warm shower and tons of tea! I would definitely stay here again! Thank you Julie for the great experience.

    Nicole2015-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Julie was a great host! There was so much information about the D.C. Area in our room that we were still finding fun things the day we were leaving. Her cat Minu was the friendliest cat we have ever seen. Great place to stay in D.C.

    Al2014-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time, the space was warm and welcoming. Julie was very accommodating, we couldn't have asked for more!

    Located just steps from VCU, the Fan, Redskins Training Camp, Richmond's best restaurants and most exciting nightlife, this beautifully renovated historic 2 bedroom offers a clean and comfortable place to call home during your RVA stay.
    Please Read! Our building was originally a printing press built in 1916. In 1985 three local and renown artists bought the building and renovated it into 3 live work spaces with apartments in the front and artist studios in the back. Our beautiful 2 bedroom is located on the ground floor of this historic brick building and features ten foot tall ceilings, original sixteen inch exposed heart pine beams and posts and beautiful reclaimed heart pine floors. The apartment has a loft living feel with it's extremely spacious square footage and sunlight that pours through it's many tall windows.
  • Adrian and Alex's apartment was adorable. The apartment was centrally located close by to everything in Richmond. They were also very easy to communicate with and helpful.

    Trish2016-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great loft, very convieniently located near the Fan with a grocery store right next door. Everything you need for a short stay in Richmond.

    Nahum2015-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was as described. The loft appartment is pretty spacious and very nicely furnished. It was also well equipped with everything you could need and very clean. The neighborhood was okay with cafés, restaurants and bars within walking distance. We appreciated the grocery store directly across the street. We had no problem to find free parking possibilities in front of the appartment. We enjoyed our stay.

    Florian2015-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment! Everything was very clean and they had extra of most everything if you forgot something. They had a drawn map of good restaurants and things to do in RVA. Stayed for an 11 day trip and will be staying again in the future if available.

    Stephen2015-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • It really is a wonderful, well laid out, comfortable space that is very well located. Adrian and Alex were great and thoughtful hosts who communicated well. I highly recommend this apartment for anyone visiting Richmond. I, for one, would not hesitate to return next time I visit Richmond. One quick piece of advice: if you are a light sleeper or sensitive to noise, you may want to stay in the back bedroom as the front bedroom along the main street can be a bit noisy. But of course, Alex and Adrian anticipated that by providing sleep aids and ear plugs (along with a number of other items that you may have forgotten to pack)! Many thanks!

    Bruce2014-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Just as the previous reviewer said, Alex & Adrian's apartment is fantastic! I really liked the tall ceilings and doors, comfortable bed, and ample supply of tea. The location is very convenient, just a few minutes' walk from many shops and restaurants in the Fan district. I also had no problem finding a parking space directly in front of the building. Unfortunately I wasn't able to meet Alex or Adrian as our schedules didn't match up, but Alex was very helpful via email and text, and the list of suggestions for music venues and restaurants was great, too. I'd definitely rent this apartment again, hopefully for longer than one night next time.

    Ryan2014-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • this is a great place in a convenient locations. Super spacious home, clean, safe and a wonderful option overall.

    NOEL2017-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Loved the well-designed, roomy, minimalist condo. Great use of space and great use of repurposed articles. It was a pleasure to stay. Our kids loved the card games/cribbage while we enjoyed the location. We walked out for great coffee in the morning and were walking distance to the party we were in town for. Having a grocery store right across the street has its bonuses. We came in a big van and were a little worried about parking and never had a problem (parking right in front of the condo). We just didn't try to park late night and used Uber. Will definetly recommend this great place to others visiting Richmond.

    A simple, yet comfortable small shaker cabin placed in the middle of the Massanutten Mountain with views to die for of the Shenandoah River and National Park. Wake up to the sight of the magnificent "Blue Ridge Mountains" and the town of Luray, VA from 1,500 feet.
    We debated long and hard whether to list this place on airbnb. After all, this is our hideaway, with a view that regretfully only a few will ever get to enjoy. But because we love it so much, and in the spirit of the sharing economy, we felt compelled to open its doors to others and allow you to experience the wonderful warmth that this small and rustic cabin will bring to your soul, your heart and your sight. While here, every sense is lifted, every smell improved, every sound a symphony. If you're looking for modern comfort and the latest gadgets, this is not your place. Instead, if you want to warm yourself up, you'll need to place wood in the stove. If you want to check the latest stock prices, you'll need to call your broker because Internet is NOT available. If you want to watch TV in your room, please look elsewhere. However, if you prefer to wake up to the most extraordinary sunrise in your life, simply sleep on the futon couch and open up your eyes in the early morning. If you find delight while hearing the buzz of a hummingbird, just place a few seeds in the balcony. If you want to reconnect with your inner self, seat in one of the shaker rocking chairs, pull up your legs and open that book you always wanted to complete. If you're lucky, you may even see a black bear or two roaming around (no worries, they are not dangerous). The Cabin is located at about 1,500 feet overlooking the Shenandoah River, the town of Luray, and the "Blue Ridge Mountains." The view is a feast to the eyesight. But don't stop there. Visit the Luray Caverns, 6 minutes at the bottom of the hills. Hike to your heart's content on the Massanutten (Stephen) Trail a mile above or in one of the dozens other nearby paths. Bring a road bike and challenge yourself to the top of the mountain. Go horse back riding. Explore the Virginia wine country. Or just...relax. Welcome to a place where time has finally slowed down!
    Chances are, you will not see the neighbors. This cabin has easy access, yet it's extremely secluded. The town of Luray is about 6 miles from the Cabin. Your closest neighbor is probably some 200 yards, if they're there at all. Welcome to rural Virginia!
  • This cabin is a hidden gem. We had such a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary, and Rodrigo was there to greet us. He recommended a hike nearby to watch the sunrise and we took his advice and had a cold but beautiful morning spent atop the mountain. The driveway is a bit steep, and since it had rained that day my tires spun in the mud- but that was the only trouble we had during the stay. We did several hikes in Shenandoah, but please note that you still have to drive about 30 minutes to get into the park. Would love to come back some day!

    Kathryn2015-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful, gem of a cabin with an unbeatable view! Rodrigo was the perfect host. We will certainly be returning!

    Ellie2015-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • it was really a great experience overall!! incredible place and amazing house. the equipments in the house were all very helpful. we enjoyed every moment there.

    Yiran2015-08-10T00:00:00Z

    Janet2016-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • Rodrigo's house is better than even the beautiful pictures show. The view is incredible and we spent so much time sitting on the deck with coffee or in the living room just staring at the mountains. The candles in the living room were lovely touch too. The foam bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was great and the house was clean and stocked with everything we might have needed. We felt very lucky to have found this house, and spent several peaceful, wonderful days there.

    Christine2016-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • My wife I decided we wanted to celebrate our 25th anniversary out in the mountains. Rodrigo's cabin is awesome! The views are beautiful. So beautiful my wife and I decided to sleep on the futon so we could wake up to the view and not have to move from the bed. Rodrigo was very responsive to questions during and after the booking. The cabin provided the perfect get away for our anniversary. Thank you Rodrigo!!!!!

    Larry2015-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a short, but wonderful time at the cabin. It's truly a special place and perfect for a 'getaway' weekend. In the past, we've rented 'cabins' that turned out to be just another house in a neighborhood. But this place really has an authentic, rustic charm while still being comfortable and cozy. The best part is the amazing view. The cabin is situated on a steep incline such that it feels like you're staying in a tree house. It's very cool. Rodrigo was a great host. He was attentive and provided detailed instructions and information on everything we needed. It's clear he puts a lot of effort and energy into a place he loves. Thanks for a great weekend!

    Justin2016-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • This house is absolutely incredible. Beautiful views, everything you need, and an amazing rustic feel to it. We stayed here for our trip to Shenandoah National Park and it blew away our expectations.
