Why Karl Miller chose Madison Heights
This is the perfect getaway spot! Comfortable with a complete kitchen and fully furnished with cookware, linens and towels. Nice furniture and a bathroom is on every level! Property is so conveniently located to town if you have family, events, or attractions on your To Do list while in the area. Fine Local restaurants are just 15 minutes away in either Downtown Lynchburg, or in the town of Amherst about a 20 minute drive away. National Forests Recreational Opportunities are endless and this house is right in the foothills off RT 130. almost in the shadow of Tobacco Row Mtn. If you want to fish in the river, a short hike down the trail offers great fishing off the bank or dock. Another option is to bring your boat and launch free at the Monacan Park Ramp just a 4 minute drive away! There is room to park a trailer here too.
What makes this Cabin unique
This home is a bit Rustic, but very Comfortable. full length covered porches both on the front offer relaxing rocking chairs while the back porch has a porch swing and plenty of chairs that overlooks the trees and slope that showcases wintertime river views. A New gas Grill and New Gas range are easy to cook with. There is a fairly strong cell signal here and there is a 39' Hi-def TV complete with Dish-network service. Wi-FI Internet is also connected, on satellite service so it's suitable for email, social media, etc, but slow for gaming or streaming movies due to slower speed and limited data. Some guests Bring cell serviced 'hotspot' tablet or phone and Verizon has a fairly good signal here to stream with. This home is most suitable unplug, unwind, enjoy nature (deer frequently are seen daily here), and the River.

This cabin is just great! Private, clean, and the river is just gorgeous!!!
Peaceful and quiet
Property was as expected, clean, spacious, well appointed. Everything worked except for the TV and if they have satellite service we could never get it going. Calls to the owner were unanswered but we still enjoyed ourselves.
Thanks for letting us know about the TV issues you had. There is a good Channel lineup with Dishnetwork on site. Also apologies if we missed an attempted call. Karl was out of town but Alys was close by and we did not get any messages. Glad you enjoyed your stay in spite of this though and it is a great place to enjoy nature!
We had a great time celebrating a 40th Birthday!
Thanks for choosing our Cabin as the place to Celebrate this Life Milestone!
Awesome property and wonderful time.
I tried to contact the owner several times about issues and no one ever got back to me, we ended up and left 2 days early and I still have not heard from the owner
We enjoyed our stay and made the best of it. The kids said they want to come again next year but for a longer stay so maybe next time we will plan a little better and book the place for longer. Overall, we recommend this place and will try to come back again next year.
