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

We accept only the number of guests that are comfortably suitable for each cabin. This depends upon the number of beds in a particular cabin as well as sofa and dining space. There are no cots, air mattresses or extra linens available. We provide linens only for the beds in each cabin. This cabin has 2 queen sized beds, one in each of the bedrooms. The loft bedroom is open to the living room and not suitable for any adult or child uncomfortable with maneuvering steps in the nighttime with a flashlight. Max 4 people


Even though we are a 'self-catering' retreat property we still have our Bed & Breakfast mindset so we supply much more than this type of business classification calls for. We want our guests to have everything reasonably possible already at the cabin so clothes, food and personal items are all that is needed.
