This is the perfect getaway spot! Comfortable with a complete kitchen and fully furnished with cookware, linens and towels. Nice furniture and a bathroom is on every level! Property is so conveniently located to town if you have family, events, or attractions on your To Do list while in the area. Fine Local restaurants are just 15 minutes away in either Downtown Lynchburg, or in the town of Amherst about a 20 minute drive away. National Forests Recreational Opportunities are endless and this house is right in the foothills off RT 130. almost in the shadow of Tobacco Row Mtn.

What makes this cabin unique

This home is a bit Rustic, but very Comfortable. A full length covered back porch overlooks the trees that showcases wintertime river views. A New gas Grill and New Gas range are easy to cook with. There is a fairly strong cell signal here and there is a 39' Hi-def TV complete with Dish-network service. Wi-FI Internet is also connected, but is on satellite service so it's suitable for email, social media, etc, but not for gaming or streaming movies due to slower speed and limited data. Some guests Bring cell serviced 'hotspot' tablet or phone and Verizon has a fairly good signal here to stream with.

A Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I had the privelege of staying at this nice, secluded cabin for 2 nights with a group of 8 guys. It was absolutely perfect for our situtation. First of all the Cabin itself is very nice. Clean, functional, well stocked bathrooms. The kitchen had all the appliances we needed plus plates, cups, and everything else. The bedrooms had nice big, clean beds and were spaced out very nice. The main room was well laid out, had a nice tv, and room for eating and hanging out.

The first thing we did was go into town to get food, drinks, etc. There is everything you need 15 minutes away driving. The ability to hang out at the cabin and not worry about space and neighbors is fantastic. You're not that far away from the next house but far enough where you are secluded, you can be noisy and do your own thing without having to worry.

Outside you have a great bonfire area, a fun wooded area to explore, a good working grill, and a deck to sit at and overlook everything. To get to the water front you just have to take a 10 minute enjoyable walk through the woods.

Basically this cabin was perfect for place for a group to hang out and not be bothered. The cabin is clean, spacious, and fully stocked. I recommend this cabin to anyone for many different purposes. Thanks to our hosts and hopefully we will make it back your way.

great little retreat

  • 5 of 5

Adorable little cabin, made for a great trip. We had four adults and two kids and plenty of room. We even go to us the fire place in April and saw snow flurries which was a treat for this GA girl. I would have to agree with the one reviewer that the matress on the bunk bed was problematic. Instead of putting the kids in the bunk bed as anticipated we had to put my parents in there so my father would not have to go up and down the stairs. He survived the matress and called it "a unique experience" but it definately was not designed for a 250 pd+ man to sleep on it.

Notes:
This is truly a sweet getaway, Neighbors are out of sight and there is a trail down the hill to the river. it is a good hill down, but fishing options are right there on the bank for you. Monican Park is a beautiful recreational area about 3/4 mile upstream and a 4 minute drive away where you can launch a boat or canoe. Rustic Getaway. Currently there is NO internet or TV but decent cell phone service so a tablet or mobile wireless device should have service. Especially Verizon's signal is strong there.
