About the property

Charming, incredibly private, log cabin in a cool, green cove with a panoramic view of the Piedmont and surrounding mountains nestled on the edge of the Blue Ridge plateau. Close to the Blue Ridge Parkway in Fancy Gap, VA. New log cabin with 2 large bedrooms and game/sleeping loft. Sleeps 6 adults. Downstairs bedroom has queen size bed and private bath. Upstairs is a huge bedroom with queen size bed and toddler bed and sofa/trundle bed. Twin beds in loft. 2.5 bathrooms, modern, well-equipped kitchen, great room, rocking chair porch and patio. Decorated with antiques. Pine paneling and wood floors throughout. Extremely private location on a gravel mountain road. On hot summer days, when the sun disappears over the mountain to the west and the Piedmont and mountains east of our cove are still bathed in sunlight, here the temperature drops to a comfortable level for relaxing on the porch. Limited Wifi suitable for email and web searching. Gas grill. We supply basic cooking condiments, soap, toilet paper and paper towels, iron, hair dryers and shampoo. 2 hours from Charlotte; 2.5 hours from Raleigh. Mountain road is part of the adventure. Great mountain biking even on the property. Relax and enjoy the view.

Area attractions include historic Mayberry/Mt. Airy, Pilot Mountain, Chateau Morrisette winery and other wineries, cideries and meaderies, many golf courses, (a set of clubs is here for your use), music festivals on the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Crooked Road music trail, hiking, fishing, kayaking, horseback riding, New River Trail nearby. Antique shopping. A short walk across the street is a spectacular waterfall. Great road for mountain biking or ATVing.

About The Owner

In 2014 we purchased a log home shell--no interior walls, flooring, paneling or anything. We completely finished it ourselves. We are retired and live most of the year in northern Wisconsin. We purchased this house in VA to be close to our kids and grandkids in Raleigh and Charlotte. We stay here in late fall and early spring. We want to share it with you the rest of the time.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2014

Why The Owner chose Fancy Gap

We loved the view and the privacy. Finishing it was a challenge we enjoyed.

Perfect Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this peaceful cabin for a week while visiting relatives nearby. We normally stay at a hotel in Mount Airy, but found Five Springs and thought we would give it a try. This was our first experience renting through Homeaway. It was truly worth it. The view was amazing and the cabin was clean and well kept. The kids loved the loft and the Foosball. The owner was quick to communicate and helpful. Hopefully it will be available the next time we visit the area. I highly recommend staying there.

Excellent stay

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and well appointed cabin; we enjoyed our stay here. The road in can be challenging for those with small cars - it's winding, up and down, and gravel. My smaller Nissan Rogue did OK. Once you get to the cabin, it is really nice and worth the trip. Visit the waterfall!

Amazing property!

We LOVED the Five Springs cabin! It had everything we needed and then some, we appreciated the small details. The view was fabulous and the location private. Wendy was responsive to all communication.

This is a beautiful ridden away jewel

  • 5 of 5

The home is very clean and well stocked with all the necessities. One of the most enjoyable features in the front porch. You can see for miles the lovely area of Virginia. At night there is a view of more stars than you can ever imagine. The beds are very comfortable and it's so easy to rest there. The host Wendy was extremely kind and accessible by phone and email for anything we needed.

The road is a bit secluded but after traveling it for a couple of days it's really not a problem.

We had a Beautiful week there.

Thank you so much Wendy for sharing your beautiful place with us. We were travelling to NC for a wedding and found this place. it was worth the longer drive to the wedding to stay here. Wendy called the night we arrived to make sure everything was ok and mad us feel very welcomed. If you stay here take a trip over to Stone Mountain State park there is a 200 foot waterfall that will not disappoint.
