Cabin Holiday Rental
The DeHart Cabin c.1860, is our only 2+ bedroom cabin. The main room, the original cabin, is a 'all-in-one' with walnut and chestnut logs, a fireplace of river stone, a sofa, kitchenette, antique farm dining table and sideboard. Overhead is the 'loft' with drop down stairs for an adventurous youngster. The loft, seldom used by modern folks, would have slept an entire family in 1860. The main bedroom has a Q bed, antique dresser and double french doors opening onto a private deck with seasonal views of the Maury River. The front bedroom has a Full bed with a 1917 solid brass frame. There is an additional Single bed in a small side room ideal for a child or younger person. Surrounded by woods, meadow and a hay field, DeHart is at the end of an internal road. Fully furnished and outfitted ...The DeHart Cabin c.1860, is our only 2+ bedroom cabin.

No more than four recommended. Satellite TV/DVD/CD, stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, pots and pans, stainless steel gas grill and firewood supplied during the season - everything you need. With an acre of mown meadow to the north, woods to the south and a hay field to the west, this cabin will give you just what you are coming here for... relaxation & tranquility. The private back deck has two Adirondack chairs with footstools, a picnic table with an umbrella and gas grill. Sitting on the back deck watching the sun set over the hay field is pure delight. A nice walk up one of the hay fields will take you to our modern day labyrinth with stunning 360 degree views of both mountain ranges. This is not to be missed! Across the entry road to the farm is the 7 mile Chessie Trail. Only 4 miles to historic downtown Lexington, excellent restaurants, gift shops, Virginia Horse Ctr and much much more. The 250 acre farm is magical! Come stay & receive its gifts ...More

So glad you returned to us and tried another wonderful historical cabin. DeHart Cabin is my family's favorite when they come to visit. Nothing like stargazing with the grandchildren on the back deck:) We look forward to welcoming you again. Warmest Regards, Lesley Management Team

About the neighbourhood
Our 250 acre farm is bordered by two rivers. Frankly, the area is amazingly beautiful. Views of both the Allegheny's and the Blue Ridge in a setting of forest and meadow. From the top of our tallest hill 360 degree views reach all the way to the end of the Shenandoah Valley. Walk along the Maury River on the old canal path or explore the cliff walk on the farm. Ten minutes to historic Lexington or Natural Bridge Monument. Come, Relax. And Renew.
