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 Cashes Valley

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.

Best Cabin Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I'm hesitant to write this review because I fear that we won't be able to rent this cabin again due to it's popularity! My two daughters and I just spent a few days in this adorable cabin and had a wonderful time. I'm very particular about the cabins we rent and Birdsong exceeded our expectations! It's extremely clean, beautifully decorated, and cozy. The location is one of the attractions, being just a few minutes from downtown Blue Ridge. We loved the cabin so much that we didn't want to leave! We enjoyed both fireplaces and spending time on the screened porch listening to the sounds of the river below the cabin. My family has been renting cabins here for many years and Birdsong is my favorite!

Perfect gift for Mom's 60th birthday!

  • 5 of 5

Decided to book Birdsong Cabin for my mother's 60th birthday. She and her guests absolutely loved this cabin. The cabin was spacious and nicely decorated. Tom was very helpful in making sure they settled in nicely. Definitely would book this cabin again for myself!

Beautiful stay at Birdsong!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved this home and all its amenities. Loved the location! The owners were very responsive and helpful. This place is highly recommended. We have been renting through VRBO in the GA Mountains for years and this is one of the best! Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful blessing.

Cozy cottage by the creek

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was cozy and had everything you needed. I enjoyed hearing the creek as I relaxed on the screen patio. Lots to do close by. I miss it already!

nice cozy home

  • 5 of 5

we really enjoyed our stay at Birdsong. The fireplace in the family room kept us nice and warm and the rest of the house was super. Nothing was lacking as far as appliances and kitchen items and the master bathroom was great. We walked down to the river several times and really enjoyed the whole area. It was close to town which really made it nice. We didn't have a chance to use the porch area because it was pretty cold but we both said we would like to come back when the weather was warmer!
