About Julie Sczerbinski

My family has owned this cabin for 5 years and we love it! After spending more than a year searching the mountains of North Carolina and Virginia for the perfect mountain home, we fell in love with this cabin the minute we saw it. When you are here, surrounded by the rhododendron-filled woods, you are able to relax. It's very peaceful and this part of Virginia is incredibly beautiful. I hope you love it as much we do.

Julie Sczerbinski purchased this cabin in 2012

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying at the cabin and for leaving a review! I agree that the WiFi isn’t as fast as I’m used to having in the city. Unfortunately, because of our rural location, we are limited to one provider for internet service. As soon as there is a faster option, you can bet we will be switching. :) Hope you will visit us again in the future. You’re welcome back any time.

Julie has thought of everything in this cabin retreat. It was a very relaxing few days and my wife, son and, especially, our golden retriever , loved it. Trails are great and fire pit, though not used due to fire ban at the time, is very nice. We had a great time and plan on coming back again.

perfect cabin and setting

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect -- high end cabin, little touches like s'mores, fully stocked kitchen, great hostess/super responsive, and setting was just perfect! We loved driving through little stream. Kids felt like we were 4-wheeling even though it was just a couple inches deep. Loved the stream/foot bridges/cows. We really didn't get to walk much more than that since we went driving for the two days, but the whole area/cabin/region were beautiful.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying at the cabin. So happy to hear it was a good experience for you! I smiled when you said your kids liked driving through the stream. That's my favorite part too! Please come back again!

Doesn’t get much better than this!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Where do I even begin? What an absolutely amazing weekend we had! My only regret is that we couldn’t stay longer! I can’t say enough good about both Julie and Bob! They are 2 of the most friendliest and sincere people we’ve ever encountered on our travels. They both went above and beyond to ensure our stay was nothing short of spectacular. The cabin was absolutely adorable and immaculate, quiet and cozy. All of the cupboards filled with “extras” made for an even more enjoyable weekend. The cabin was so welcoming. The property was gorgeous. We definitely felt like we hit the jackpot with this little slice of heaven. There’s no question about it, we will be back!!
