About Genny Wilson

Stu and I met in 2005, in Lynchburg, Virginia.

We married and headed West to live closer to our grandkids.

We have used VRBO for all our travels since then, and decided it was a great way to share our sweet cabin in Virginia with y'all!

Genny Wilson purchased this cabin in 1986

Why Genny Wilson chose Central Virginia

Stuart bought this land and built this house for the seclusion and the beauty that surrounds it.

What makes this cabin unique

If you are looking for a very quiet, relaxing vacation getaway, a simple but sweet, clean and comfortable romantic Anniversary or honeymoon retreat, a private peaceful writers retreat, with no distractions, a family gathering, or to re-connect without all the pods, pads and technology, then Davis Creek Cabin is where you'll want to stay.

Perfect for wine lovers, as we are located in the heart of Virginia wine country, with several local vineyards and breweries in driving distance.

There are festivals, concerts, antiquing, Walton's Mountain Museum, Wintergreen Ski Resort, Monticello, and other attractions and places to visit!

The little town of Lovingston is just a short 4 mile drive up Highway 29, where you'll find a post office, grocery store, Trager Brothers coffee,(which we provide at the cabin), a dollar store, a Subway and a McDonalds...as well as a little local diner called The Lovingston Cafe for good country fare.

Wonderful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying in this wonderful little cabin. Spotless and beautifully decorated and the owners have thoughtfully provided everything you need for a comfortable stay. We also loved the location....very close to many wineries and breweries. We grilled out both nights we were there and drank coffee on the front porch both mornings. Would definitely stay here again.

Another wonderful mountain weekend!

  • 5 of 5

As always, our stay at Davis Creek Cabin was comfortable and enjoyable! Can't remember ever seeing so many stink bugs in one place before!! They did not bother us in the least and we loved the cabin and the fire pit as well as the porch swing while we were there to attend the Rebec Winery's Wine and Garlic Festival. Great local close to lots to do and see. We love this place and will keep coming back!!

Wonderful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the cabin. Everything was very well-kept and well-thought out. It was extremely cozy and had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the fire pit in the evenings and watching the stars. The location was excellent too -plenty to do nearby. Thanks Genny for a wonderful stay. We hope to be back soon!
