Cabin Holiday Rental
'Into the forest I go... to lose my mind and find my soul.' -John Muir Incredible cabin nestled in the center of 70 very private acres. 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. There is WiFi but no cable, and (unless you have Verizon or Sprint) limited or no cell signal. Feels remote yet only 20 minutes away from all that Charlottesville has to offer!

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. There is WiFi but no cable, and (unless you have Verizon or Sprint) limited or no cell signal. Feels remote yet only 20 minutes away from all that Charlottesville has to offer! Cabin is conveniently located in the heart of the Virginia wine, beer and cider trail. While many popular attractions await you, most guests decide that returning to the cabin is the highlight of each day. You begin to feel it from the moment you turn down into the driveway and meander by the grazing sheep entering the valley where a spring-fed pond gently gurgles as you pass through the canopy of trees shot through with shafts of sunlight. Subconsciously at first, you inhale a little deeper and then exhale just a little slower than usual. The bustle of life begins to fade as nature envelopes you. Crossing over the creek and heading upwards to Serenity Hill, you are greeted by big sky and open fields. As the driveway makes its final bend, H’Owl at the Moon Cabin unfolds. The corners of your mouth tip upward. Your shoulders rise an inch. Do they seem lighter already? Can’t be…. But then you get out of the car and step into the magic of Serenity Hill and the warm, inviting cabin. You’re on vacation and yet, somehow, you’ve come home. You were meant to be here. Before you know it, you are under her spell. It’s the place to inspire dreams and make memories; the place to appreciate family and love; the place to restore your balance as a part OF nature, not apart FROM nature. H’Owl at the Moon is an optimal place to clear the mind, restore the soul, and inspire the heart. Find your strength and your center again. Regroup and recharge. Everywhere you look, regardless of the season, you have company in the form of natural beauty – from the active peep frog colony in late Winter to the hummingbirds and butterflies of Spring; from the newly arrived fawns signaling Spring through the flowering fields and firefly soaked evenings of Summer; from the night sounds of owls and coyotes in Fall to the ground nesting birds of Winter: H’Owl at the Moon beckons -- its cabin offering a central respite from which to allow your mind to quiet and your soul to open. The cabin at H’Owl at the Moon is an authentic log home on nearly 70 acres in beautiful Albemarle County, Virginia. A year-round creek borders the entire eastern side of the property with many small pools and waterfalls. Mowed footpaths cross the fields and provide easy access to walking trails in the forest and a world of exploration. A large freshwater spring-fed pond offers 24 hour entertainment whether it's sunning and swimming in it yourself or just watching and listening to the bullfrogs do it. The cabin has excellent outdoor living spaces that bring nature up close. A covered front porch offers a shady spot to relax in the morning with coffee and a full-length back deck on the sunny side of the house offers two BBQs and a picnic table with umbrella. There is also an all-season fire pit with four Adirondack chairs – a perfect place to find anchor as you lose yourself in the sea of night sky as it opens a panoramic view of darkness and splendor. Inside offers surprising space and luxury. The front door opens to a vaulted great room with beautiful pine floors, tongue-and-groove wood ceiling, exposed beams, and a wall of windows that displays the natural beauty outside. The centerpiece of the great room is a two-story, semi-round window to brighten the space. The kitchen is ready for real cooking. It is fully stocked with quality pots and pans, bake ware, cookie sheets, serving dishes, plates, utensils, wine glasses, etc. The pantry has a fairly extensive spice selection and basic staples. Other amenities include soapstone countertops, a six-burner gourmet gas range/oven, Keurig coffee maker, large refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, toaster, measuring cups and spoons, mixing bowls, and food storage containers. The master suite in the loft is warm and inviting. It features wood floors with oriental rugs, a walk-in closet, a sturdy king bed frame made from repurposed barn wood and a plush memory foam pillow top mattress, a spacious private bath with twin vessel sinks and separate shower. The loft also features a cozy chilling area with a TV and DVD player and sofa (along with my epic selection of movies). The first floor also has a cozy bedroom with two pillow top twin beds and its own private bath featuring a 16” rain shower. *** Listing is 'pets considered' please send inquiry first.

About the neighbourhood
I purchased this property because of its privacy. You will not see another neighbor from the cabin or property. Quiet days and quiet nights under the stars is what makes this place special. Come to relax, unwind, and reconnect with your inner self or someone else.
Getting around
Your car, your atv, your horse, or your own two feet :-). Seriously, I have owned the property for over five years and probably hike 8 miles a day whenever I am there and never tire of it. Sometimes just 'being there' is enough.
