About Tom & Lynn Piacentini

Here we are with our two beautiful and talented daughters.

We have always dreamed of our own getaway and rented for years. We had ideas of how the experience could be improved and are now giving it a try for ourselves.

Tom & Lynn Piacentini purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Tom & Lynn Piacentini chose Blue Ridge

This was a cabin we saw on the first day looking. It had all the cozy charm we were looking for and incredible potential. We fell in love with it immediately!

What makes this cabin unique

Off the beaten path but so close to everything. The short gravel road puts you in the middle of the woods where the quite and solitude can be enjoyed.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Our family group really enjoyed our stay at Birdsong.

  • 5 of 5

We appreciated all of the redecorating, the remodeled master bath, and additional furnishings at Birdsong. Last time we stayed the new owners had just purchased the cabin. All of us admired the awesome handmade kitchen table and the new linens and accessories that make the cabin unique. Of course we love the location and the fact that the cabin maintains its rustic charm, yet still provides plenty of comforts too.

Quaint and beautiful cabin!

  • 4 of 5

We loved everything about Birdsong and look forward to coming back again. It was perfectly appointed and fit our needs in every way. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating is the mattress was sunken in and made it difficult for me to get comfortable but the cozy room and linens made up for it. Thanks for sharing your beautiful retreat with us!

Perfectly situated over a softly rambling Creek. Home is renovated, always clean with every accommod

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit here and we always feel at home. Tom & Lynn have added every tasteful detail from the new Mstr.Bed & bath, appliances and back splash! Plenty of room and privacy for our sons and their guests. This kitchen is completely stocked with every utensil and coffee maker so there's no need to bring a thing! Beware of the sleeping porch. The comfy bed dotted with decorative pillows, blanket and light overhead will entice you to lose several hours reading, bird watching, daydreaming or just napping after a long day horsebackriding, ziplining, hiking or whitewater rafting. All of which we've done. The restaurants are superb. My favorites being Harvest on Main and Chesters, consider reservations! Please consider Callihans Adventure Trail Rides for calm responsive horses, amazing staff and several trail packages to suit every rider. They are so accommodating to every need. So in love with this house (and Tom & Lynn), this area (oh don't forget the train ride), and the people who work very hard to make this the quaint little town that it is. One last note. Save your pennies, the shopping is a fun way to pass some time. Small boutique shops from clothing, jewelry, fishing rods, outdoor wear to name a few. Must name my favorite is "Owls Nest". Jennifer the owner supports small artists who create the most unique mountain/American Indian jewelry and clothing. If you love sewing/quilting check out Country Stitches. A small adorable renovated home on W.Main houses some of the most beautiful fabrics and Priscilla adds her country charm to everything she touches. Ok, so I'm homesick for my favorite place on Earth so I'm rebooking for the spring!

Owner's Response: Wow! That is quite a recap of the town, the area , the cabin, all the adventures, the restaurants and shopping! I will forever feel the underachiever as I nap on the porch. Thank you and we welcome you and your family back anytime. Tom & Lynn

Quite charming- a great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Birdsong! It is a great location, not far from Blue Ridge. It is tucked in the woods with a babbling creek close enough to hear from the screened porch which made for delightful napping on the porch day bed! The cabin was well-equipped and comfortable. We cooked most meals at the cabin and did not need a thing! The only bed we slept in was the master and it was very comfortable. I would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting a quiet get-a-way. It would be well-suited for children too!
