Why BEA chose Virginia

Having a total of 66 acres of woods and privacy is what inspired us to build Deer Ridge.

Besides being totally secluded, it is only minutes to Monticello, Ashlawn/Highland, Jefferson, Blenheim and Trump Wineries and 15 minutes to Charlottesville.

What makes this cabin unique

Careful planning has gone into every aspect of it's construction, from the actual setting of the cabin for the sunny kitchen/back porch mornings to the viewing of the setting sun from the front porch. Each stone in the chimney and fireplace have been handpicked, along with the sawmill cut boards on the walls to the individually wooden hand-pegged red oak floors. Rick and I have worked for the past to 2 years in order to bring Deer Ridge to life and are currently offering it for others to enjoy.

Located only minutes from local major Historic Sites, 3 Wineries and only 15 minutes to Charlottesville.

Perfect for a quick getaway, lodging for members of a wedding party for those celebrating at nearby Ash Lawn/Highland, a honeymoon/marriage retreat or just for a quiet family vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Bea, Mike and I love your cabin! We will be back! It has been a quiet, calm and relaxing weekend. There is so much to do and see here. We only wish we had more time. See you Soon!

Thank you!

We very much enjoyed our brief stay at Bea,s.... for those who like to cook, her kitchen was the better equipped than other places I,ve stayed. And Bea is wonderful hostess. A great place to lodge.

Quiet, clean, central air conditioning, and private sum up this very special place. Bea is a sweet hostess and loves her cabin. We loved the country location and country decorations of the cabin. Thank you.

Peaceful & Restful stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our anniversary get-a-way at Deer Ridge Cabin! Such a relaxing, quiet, peaceful surrounding, and the custom cabin is adorable. Lots of fun things to do around the area... also good spot for history fans. The beautiful Carter's Mountain Orchard is close by, with gorgeous views. The owner is as sweet as pie, and puts so much thought into making the cabin so cozy.

Fantastic Place to Stay !

  • 5 of 5

This cabin exceeded all our expectations. Very quiet and peaceful which is what we were looking for. This is our 5th cabin through Home Away and probably the nicest. Well Maintained both inside and out. Nicely furnished. Bea is a fantastic host. We made a wrong turn on the way there and called Bea and she not only did she give us excellent directions, she stayed on the phone wit us until we arrived. She met us at the cabin with home made brownies and they were excellent. You could not ask for a nicer person then Bea. It was so relaxing there quiet. I never slept as good as I did each of the 4 nights we were there.

It is only 15 minutes from downtown Charlottesville and several attractions.

I highly recommend Deer Ridge Cabin

Quaint, clean, private cabin. Close to Charlottesville

  • 5 of 5

Loved this charming cabin! Very clean and had everything we needed. Bea, the owner was great and even welcomed us with a plate of homemade brownies. It was a short drive to downtown Charlottesville and had several wineries nearby. We really enjoyed our stay!

Beautiful setting in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Deer Ridge Cabin and are already planning our next visit this fall! The location was perfect to enjoy all that the Charlottesville area has to offer, whether it be the downtown area, the wineries or nearby Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive. Bea met us at the cabin with eggs and cranberry bread and helped us settle in. The cabin is immaculately clean and has everything you need for a cozy stay. Bea offered us advice on the area and was close by in case we needed anything. We loved exploring the area during the day and coming "home" to the cabin for a quiet evening on the porch. Hoping to come back this fall to enjoy the foliage! Thanks again!

Our cabin is only 7 miles from Thomas Jefferson's beloved Monticello, 5 miles from James Monroe's Ashlawn/Highland home. Wineries within this 7 mile radius include Jefferson, Blenheim (Dave Matthews) and Trump . Let's not forget about Carter Mountain Orchard, The Michie Tavern and the General Store. So much to do within a 10 mile spread from Deer Ridge Cabin.
