About Owner/Property Manager

Luke and Catherine Fleischman have been living the dream for 15 years in Cumberland County. We enjoy skiing, gardening, riding, and running. Luke is an artist who paints and welds. Catherine is a special education teacher. We are active Virginia Master Naturalists. We generate 75% of the energy we consume by using solar power.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Virginia

Cumberland County has approximately 11,000 residents. In 1790 there were 16,000. It is a very rural county with private farms and 16,000 acres of public land. We live here because we can run for two miles on a dirt road before we reach the paper box.

What makes this cabin unique

Solitude, bird and wildlife habitat, very little traffic, these are gifts. The cabin and main house are apart of our nation's history. Hand hewed logs and beams, stone foundations, metal artifacts from the revolution and a library of books from previous owners dating to 1810 offer a unique opportunity to understand our past.

Rustic does Right by Us

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the rustic cabin. We had to laugh that the stairs were a little too steep for our agility dogs to climb- I guess b/c the stairs weren't carpeted the dogs were a little unsteady on their feet. We loved the quiet! Nature was our only distraction. Luke and Catherine were super friendly, accommodating, and helpful. Fresh flowers were all around the cabin. Perfect long weekend getaway- we wished we had more time to spend at this quiet retreat from almost everything! If you visit in the spring- fall bring bug spray for battling the ticks and mosquitoes. Super enjoyable respite from our daily routine.

Little Cabin In The Woods Where One Can View The Beautiful Virginia Blue Sky By Day & Stars By Night

  • 5 of 5

On Friday April 7, my husband and I, as well as our dog, were welcomed to VueMont warmly by Catherine & Luke with a friendly tour of their cabin and around the farm. They also had the fireplace ready with wood to light on a cool, windy Spring night. Saturday morning we enjoyed the screened porch with our coffee looking out at the horses grazing in their paddock. While my husband spoke at a church nearby I stayed at the cabin & worked on my granddaughter's quilt. Both Luke & Catherine checked to make sure our stay was going well & to see if we had any needs. They also shared more details about the history of the cabin & their home VueMont. While there we enjoyed walks around the farm, bird watching from both porches, but mostly we loved the peace & quiet away from any signs or sounds of the daily city life we live. Our dog enjoyed getting to run free without a lease and getting to meet their 3 dogs who were friendly just like their owners!!! 😊?

Thank you Catherine & Luke!

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife, our dog, and I thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at this cabin. It's rustic nature was exactly what we needed to get away from our jobs and the distractions of our phones. The property is beautifully maintained and the hosts were very gracious and accommodating. If you are looking for a place to simplify daily life and "put things in perspective", I highly recommend this cottage!

The most quaint cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cabin as it was close to a brewery and wineries that we wanted to visit. This is the the loveliest rustic cabin for a peaceful and romantic vacation. The fireplace was awesome and Luke kept the porch stocked with wood. The cabin is supplied with games and has a nice size kitchen and bathroom. Luke and Catherine are very accommodating and friendly. They brought us tea when they found out that we forgot to bring our tea from home! The cabin has many nice historic touches and is very cozy. We plan to try the cabin in the summer to take advantage of the screened in porch on the back that overlooks the horses.

The Envy Of Our Friends!

  • 5 of 5

This place is special, and Virginia will forever be in our memory! This was a long-awaited girl trip for me and my friend after a long season of very hard work. It was not what we expected, for sure. It was more remote, and, although we expected rustic, it was R-U-S-T-I-C. But we found ourselves each day sinking deeper and deeper into it's magnetic ambiance of the simplicity of the past. They've furnished the kitchen with utensils and dishes from the past. Some great stuff. We had no cell signal or internet. (Luke was kind enough to allow us to use his hot spot occasionally.) The air was crisp and the fall color was stunning. Each morning, we had our coffee and warmed our feet by the fireplace. We glanced out the window to see the horses grazing in the pasture with a backdrop to the changing trees. Luke and Catherine kept the front porch loaded with fresh firewood and starters. We posted photos and got hundreds of responses! We were the envy of all our friends! :-)

I will admit, we were challenged by the steep stairs to the lofts when we first arrived, but found we adjusted to them quickly after a day. The only change I would have made to our trip was to reverse our itinerary and/or stay longer! We moved on to Williamsburg, which we thoroughly enjoyed, but we ached for the atmosphere of Vue Mont Cabin. Thank you, Luke and Catherine, for a dream retreat! We'll be back, and we are sending our friends!
