Stayed for one week in this cozy cabin , I was happy with the accommodations . The air was fresh, the surroundings were beautiful , we were quite isolated from the world.

“Amazing get away.”

My husband and I were looking for a different way to celebrate our 35th anniversary. We need to find someplace within a reasonable driving distance from the D.C. area. I went on Tripadvisor and found this wonderful cabin. WE arrived after dark so the ride up to it was a bit scary . As soon as we opened the door we were amazed. It is so quaint but has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The peace and quiet was just what we needed. While my husband slept in, I wrapped myself in one of the comfy blankets available and sat outside with my hot tea inhaling the fresh mountain air. We chose to bring food to cook ourselves and the kitchen was fully equipped to do just that. There was a very nice bottle of wine waiting for us- a nice, personal touch. WE enjoyed our stay so much we booked another cabin owned by the same people just up the road. But that's another review!!

We are so happy you enjoyed our Writer's Retreat. It is one of my favorite cabins for getting away and been a haven for many artists and writers looking for inspiration over the years. We hope it inspired you as well.

Best,

“Quiet cozy cabin”
Reviewed June 3, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Comfy rustic cabin, but with some of the comforts of home, like air conditioning. The living room was comfortable, the kitchen well equipped. The front porch was nice for an evening sitting.

“Perfect couple's retreat!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My husband and I spent two and a half weeks at the Writer's Retreat in September, and it was exactly as advertised - a relief since we were driving all the way from Canada! A wonderful retreat, quiet, removed from noise and the city, yet close enough to both Lexington and Buena Vista to go in for activities and groceries. Its proximity to the I-81 as well as other highways was convenient, and the washer and dryer were invaluable!

While we were not able to take full advantage of the rest of the property as we were touring around the Shenandoah Valley so much, we would definitely like to return, perhaps in the spring when flowers are blooming...

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Writer's Retreat. It is one of my favorite cozy cabins when I want to get away as well. We look forward to your return and hope next time you will be able to explore more walks and hikes on the property. It is truly a magical place. Perhaps in the spring?
