Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom Log Cabin 3 Miles from Blue Ridge Parkway

Welcome to Peak-a-View Cabin on the slopes of Sharp Top Mountain of the Peaks of Otter, 10 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Peaks of Otter Visitor Center, Lodge and Restaurant.

Our cabin is situated in a clearing on five acres of otherwise wooded land, surrounded by the natural world, yet offering all the comforts of home.

The front porch of our cabin is the front row in a theater of nature. Take a seat and wait for the wildlife to pass by, and occasionally stop by for a visit. Birds – Hawks, owls, pileated woodpeckers, bluebirds, spring warblers, and wild turkeys are just a small sampling of the avian visitors. Foxes, squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks, deer, and the occasional black bear are often guest stars in the spectacular show. You don’t need a ticket, just a pair of binoculars, a bit of patience, and perhaps a glass of wine to sharpen the senses. You can also take a walk in the woods on our maintained trails, and visit the nearby creek which runs cold and clear from the mountains.

Inside our lovely, cozy cabin you will find attractions of a more domestic sort: A stone fireplace with wood and kindling always stocked, central air conditioning and heating, front-loading washer and dryer, Satellite HDTV, wireless internet, dishwasher, electric range and oven, microwave, coffee makers, stereo cd player, two bedrooms each with queen sized beds (sheets and linens provided), all rooms furnished for socializing, reading, or relaxing. We allow dogs, up to 40 pounds, and you will find a jar of treats waiting inside the front door to help make your pet feel at home as well.

Our cabin is a home away from home for us, and we hope that once you visit, you will feel the same. It is close enough to the town of Bedford (6 miles) for shopping and dining, but far enough away that you will have your own quiet escape, serenity, and privacy. We have tried to provide all the conveniences to make you comfortable, but all the peace and solitude you need to relax and reset.

All potential guests MUST also speak to us by phone before booking. We will answer any questions about our home.

*please pick up after your dog or a fee for clean-up will be billed

*our neighbors welcome our guests to enjoy their orchard and flowers. Please respect their privacy

*absolutely no CATS

Refreshing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our trip to Peak-a-View cabin! It offers a quiet, serene retreat from the busyness of life, but also isn’t far from Bedford and things to do. We spent each morning sipping our coffee by the fire, and the afternoons we explored all the land and trails around the cabin. The back porch was a peaceful spot to watch the sunrise, and the front porch was great for animal watching. Having internet and cable was very convenient so we could research restaurants to go to (you have to try Peaks of Otter Lodge and Beale’s) and also enjoy our Sunday night football. The house is thoughtfully stocked with all the kitchen supplies you need, hair dryer, fans, firewood, starter logs, laundry detergent, coffee filters, etc. The only drawback was the second bedroom is more loft-style without a door so we had to put our daughter to bed in the master so we didn’t keep her up at night. But overall we loved our stay and will definitely be back!

Cozy, remote and amazingly relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was so very cozy and quiet. It is set back away from major roads so there's no road noise, no nosy neighbors and so peaceful. The bird feeders outside were always full of life and there was even kindling in the fireplace when we got there, ready to be lit. The owners of this cabin thought of everything and pay attention to detail when preparing for renters. I can't say enough about this wonderful property and hope to stay here on vacation for years to come!!!

Fantastic getaway for the family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin! The solitude of the property, the stream, and the walking trail were well-maintained and added to the overall experience. The majestic views of the Peaks of Otter from the trail were a welcome surprise. My son and I laughed at the sudden sounds of a nearby donkey being obstinate! Nearby to many different restaurants (we particularly enjoyed Liberty Station), activities (we went to the D-Day Memorial, Poplar Forest, and an escape room in Lynchburg ), and many stops in between, this was the ideal vacation for the 5 of us and our black lab.

We try to travel to the blue ridge or Appalachian mountains every 1-2 years for our anniversary, and this cabin and the location was the best yet!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation. The cabin was our perfect place to relax after a day exploring nearby towns. It is a bit loud in the master bedroom if someone is walking around upstairs. We would definitely stay again though! We made wonderful memories here!
