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

I really enjoyed my stay at the cabin and was my second time I have stayed here.so cozy and relaxing very clean excellent care takers and owners.our time there was so enjoyable and I didn't want to leave. The town of Bedford is only few miles away and is a very charming town and has all your needs. Blue ridge parkway is only few miles away such a beautiful place at this time of the year to stay.

Very Peaceful and Relaxing Vacation

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I returned a few days ago from six nights at Peek a View Cabin. We had a wonderful time. It's so relaxing and peaceful to be so "away from it all". We enjoyed wonderful fall temps and even got to use the fireplace on our last day. Cooking over the fire pit was a lot of fun and we enjoyed the trails. Be sure to bug spray up before you go walking! It felt more like staying in a friend's home than a generic rental. Would definitely recommend!

relaxing beyond words

  • 5 of 5

I went to peek-a-view cabin to spend some time with my son, and it was perfect. Beautiful property, excellent location, close to town yet far away as well. all the comforts of home, but felt like camping in a far away forest.

the owners have packed the cabin with so much area information you don't ever have to turn on your computer to research anything. The butterflies and hummingbirds are plentiful! I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Lovely cabin in the woods

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The cabin was stocked with the basics and very cozy. The outside space is private and has lots of different areas for play and enjoying the outdoors. Not far from the town of Bedford and kayaking in the James River.

Very Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our dog had a great stay. For a couple, there is plenty of space, and the yard provided a great space for our dog to run around. The trail out back is also beautiful.
