Why BEA chose Scottsville

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!

Great cabin away from everything!

  • 5 of 5

Bea was very hands on with any needs you have. She baked muffins and had fresh eggs for us too! She made a trip up to the cabin to help us with the cable connections and vhs, dvd players. It is a cozy stay for 2. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday there.

Peaceful cabin and setting

  • 5 of 5

Very pleasant cabin. Peaceful and quiet setting with all the amenities for comfortable stay. Hostess Bea was super kind - leading us up to the cabin when a road problem delayed our arrival after dark.

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Deer Ridge Cabin was just what we needed. The cabin is set in a quiet valley with a short drive to area attractions giving us the solitude we wanted to relax and recoup. Bea is a marvelous hostess. She even brought us muffins and balloons for our anniversary! The cabin is clean and well decorated but still makes you feel right at home. Thanks Bea, and good luck with all your future plans.

Remote Quiet Comfort

  • 5 of 5

The Deer Ridge Cabin was better than expected, very remote the only neighbors one sees are the occasional deer which travel through the area. If you want quiet, this is the place for you. Bea was a great help getting us settled in to this beautiful cabin, nicely decorated with country touches one can only feel the love and dedication she has put into this property. Close to a number of wineries and just a short drive to Charlottesville and all of its beauty; staying here was a great start to our vacation. BTW, the oatmeal dessert she had waiting for us was yummy.

She met us on our departure to insure that everything went well; a great host.
