Into the forest I go... to lose my mind and find my soul.
Incredible cabin nestled on a hill on 66 very private acres. H'Owl at the Moon Farm was completed in 2016. Relax and unwind under incredible stars and listen to the night sounds of frogs, crickets, owls, and sometimes coyotes.
Close proximity to James River and tubing, UVA, and many wineries. You won't see any neighbors but you will see millions of stars and gain the serenity that can only come from unplugging from the world for a few days. No wi-fi, no cable, and, unless you have Verizon, no cell signal.
Feels remote yet only 20 minutes away from all that Charlottesville has to offer!
Although easily accessible, the roads leading to the cabin and the driveway are all gravel. I have never had any problem with friends getting to the cabin in everything from a Prius to an RV. That said, don't wash and wax your car and expect it to stay that way :-). All Access, Including 66+ acres to hike and explore. I also have an agreement with my neighbors who lease 500 surrounding acres which you can hike and four-wheel in all months but mid September - early January (hunting season).
Treat the house as if it were your own. Bring horses or four-wheelers but absolutely no shooting of any animals of any kind (in or out of season) without my expressed and prior approval.
I live locally (but not close) and am available via phone and email to answer any questions or to visit in person if desired. Sometimes I am around to greet guests in person. When I am not, the caretaker Diana will check with you on arrival day to make sure you got settled in and answer any questions you may have.
*** Please note: I do not accept reservations more than 6 months away. If you find you have an important need of a distant reservation (i.e. you are getting married in Scottsville and you are the bride), just send me a message and I will block the dates for you until we get within the six month range
*** Also note that this listing is 'pets considered' please do not send a booking request without first sending an inquiry. I need to know the type and number of pets prior to booking. I don't charge a pet fee but am selective about the number and type of pets I will allow.
*** Please do not split weekends unless booking a full week. If booking a Friday or a Saturday only, please inquire before sending a booking request. Since most renters book full weekends, 1/2 weekends usually leads to vacancies. I am more flexible about this during non-peak season.
*** Lastly, I have chosen to offer my guests a fully refundable security deposit as the the default option. HomeAway/VRBO also offers rental insurance protection for $59 which is NOT refundable. However, if you would prefer that option, let me know and I can change the quote to include that instead. (p.s. thanks for reading all my notes :-)
