Cabin Holiday Rental
Our cabin is cozy and comfortable. A Blue Ridge Cabin is an authentic, hand-hewn hemlock cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains, near Meadows of Dan, Floyd, and less than two miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway. It's privately situated on a unique property with other cabins scattered around; our particular cabin is in a private location with tall trees bordering two sides, and a hillside bordering another, to offer plenty of seclusion. Parking is immediately adjacent to the cabin, with no hills or stairs to climb (other than 2 steps leading to the front porch).
The cabin has wood floors, a private master bedroom with a queen bed, chest of drawers, and a closet; a great loft with a queen bed, single bed, hand-made walnut futon, and a reading nook; a full kitchen with dishes, pots, pans, coffee ma...Our cabin is cozy and comfortable.

Parking is immediately adjacent to the cabin, with no hills or stairs to climb (other than 2 steps leading to the front porch).
The cabin has wood floors, a private master bedroom with a queen bed, chest of drawers, and a closet; a great loft with a queen bed, single bed, hand-made walnut futon, and a reading nook; a full kitchen with dishes, pots, pans, coffee maker, microwave, and toaster; and bathroom with walk-in shower and a full size washer and dryer. The dining area has a solid walnut table and benches that seat six.
The living room has a a cozy gas fireplace that's easy to operate, a comfortable sofa, coffee table, rockers, 39' cable HDTV, free WiFi, and a Bluetooth stereo speaker.We have some DVDs available, plus lots of books and board and card games.
There's space for up to seven to sleep here - a queen bed in the bedroom, with windows looking out at the trees, and a queen bed, single bed, and futon in the loft. All linens are provided for your stay.
One of the best features is the large wood deck off the back of the cabin; it's quiet and comfortable, with rocking chairs, a bench, and a charcoal grill. You can put on a playlist, sit and relax with a good book and a cup of coffee or glass of wine, and enjoy.
On the grounds of the cabin itself, are acres of mowed fields and gravel roads to walk, run, bike, and walk your dogs. Longfin Grill is located at the Cockram Mill complex, which is within walking distance from the cabin at the Dan River headwaters.
Explore the Blue Ridge Parkway, less than two miles away from the cabin. Lovers Leap is on J.E.B. Stuart Highway, only a couple of miles away, and has some of the most picturesque views around. There are several antique shops, country stores, and farmers markets in the area. Mabry Mill - which seasonally offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner - is one of the most photographed landmark on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and is just two miles from the cabin. The mill still grinds flour more than a century since its original construction. Near Mabry Mill, you can also see the Matthews Cabin, blacksmith shop and interpretive area, as well as demonstrations on blacksmithing, carding, spinning, basket making and other traditional Appalachian crafts.
Visits to local wineries such as Chateau Morrisette and Villa Appalaccia are a must. Less than a half hour away, visit the town of Floyd, grab a craft beer at Buffalo Mountain Brewery, moonshine at Five Mile Mountain Distillery, a cold beer and pizza at Dogtown Roadhouse, handmade chocolate at Cocoa Mia, or visit the country store and listen to live Bluegrass music. Just a little further away, enjoy local meaderies and cideries. The musically inclined can spend a few days at FloydFest - the cabin is one of the most convenient spots to stay if you're attending.
There's tons of things to do outdoors, including hiking the trails at Rocky Knob, Fairy Stone State Park, and climbing Buffalo Mountain. The Rocky Knob recreation area covers more than 4000 acres. Four trails offer a variety of scenic and historical wonders. The Rock Castle Gorge trail descends over three miles into the backcountry camping area in the bottom of the gorge. The strenuous and rugged nature of the trail reveal part of the reason this pathway was given National Recreational Trail status. Fred Clifton Park, a couple miles up the road, has awesome views of the northern Blue Ridge and diverse bird and butterfly watching.
The cabin is an easy drive to Martinsville to catch the NASCAR races. Stuart is a beautiful drive about 20 minutes from the cabin, while bigger box stores can be shopped in Galax, Christiansburg, and Martinsville.

Minimum $250 cleaning fee for smoking inside the cabin. Check in and check out times are firm, to give our cleaners time to prepare for you and other guests. Please don't move furniture around inside the cabin (or between cabins). For safety precautions, and because different areas of the property have different private owners, please stay on mowed portions of the property. We do allow good pets, and really appreciate you picking up after them!

The experience we had was fantastic. This cabin is a true gem in the middle of the nature combined with cultural sites and near the best hiking spots with breathtaking scenic views throughout the Parkway. Highly recommended!!
The cabin was beautifully done and provided you with every comfort that you could ask for. Even my wife who has never enjoyed my cabin getaway adventures loved the cabin so much that she did not want to leave which is absouletely amazing. We plan...More

Thank you for the kind words, we appreciate it, and are so happy you and your wife enjoyed the cabin. It would be our pleasure to have you return again. Joe
The cabin is quiet and private. There are local shops, including a restaurant, gift shops, and convenience/country stores with gas in Meadows of Dan. The cabin is very convenient to wineries, Floyd, and the Rocky Knob/Castle Gorge trails. It's a quiet, peaceful stop near the Blue Ridge Parkway, but with plenty to do at the same time.
