My beautiful log cabin in the country is the perfect place for two people or a whole family to enjoy being together in a tranquil setting. Enjoy a sunset from the swing or rocking chairs on the front porch. Have a cookout on the back porch using the gas or charcoal grills. Or, just watch the songbirds at the feeder. Don't forget to feed them. There's sunflower seed in the can on the back porch.
AMMENITIES: I created a badminton-volleyball court. How about a game of marbles or maybe, horseshoes? The croquet set is in the little barn. The hammock will probably be up in good weather. Indoors I have collected quite a few games. The books on the rotating shelf at the end of the sofa cover a wide variety of interests. Why don't you pop some corn and curl up on the sofa. There is an old fashioned stovetop popper under the stove and corn in a jar in the fridge. You'll find the kitchen fully equipped with microwave, dishwasher, full sized fridge, and my eclectic collection of kitchenware.
ACCOMODATIONS: Faye made the queen bed in the bedroom-put a nice quilt on it. There's a quilt on the queen bed in the rocking horse bedroom too. The antiques look nice against the old wood walls and floors. That painting by the fireplace is a primitive that my mother painted a while back. The TV-DVD is on the loft. It is connected to a satellite dish. That sofa pulls out into a queen sized bed. The leather sofa in the great room hides a queen sized bed as well. Extra sheets and towels are in the linen closet. More blankets and pillows are in the cabinet by the dining table. The phone is over there by the stairs.
AREA: Now, I want to tell you about our area. This is a beautiful part of Virginia. You can see the Blue Ridge Mountains to the east. The famous Natural Bridge is just 2 miles down the road. Historic Lexington, where General Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson lived, is only 11 miles up the Lee Highway. There are horse drawn carriage rides through town. Virginia Military Institute and Washington and Lee University are here. You can watch a cadet parade at 4 PM on Fridays at VMI.
If your group is larger, I have just completed restoring a railroad caboose on the property which can accommodate a couple or a couple and a child. Come to Natural Bridge and visit our beautiful area! Tom BradshawTripAdvisor property ID 4312779...Read more

My husband and I were looking to get away for a long weekend with our infant and dog, and came across the cabin on the internet. We really enjoyed our stay here. We found the cabin to be very cozy and relaxing, and the location is great for sight-seeing in nearby Natural Bridge and Lexington.

everything was great, we didn't want for anything,it even came with a very friendly dog, the home was beautiful and the landscaping was gorgeous. we had our morning coffee on the back porch while we watched the birds and squirrels. my mother went through the death of 2 sisters and my father in 4 months, needless to say she needed to get away, she said it was the most peaceful place she had ever been too. she also referred it to all my brothers and their famililes.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tom's Cabin. We both needed a rest and this is just the right place. Situated among the hilly farms with horses and cattle in the surrounding fields, birds, peace and quiet. Everything close by, Natural Bridge, Lexington, the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains, wineries, etc. The cabin has everything you need, lots of books and interesting antiques to perk your interest. We will come back.
