In the night time you may see the Milky Way and more stars than you have seen in a long time! A short walk up to the farm's highest hilltop will take you to the modern day labyrinth & a stunning 360 degree view of both the mountain ranges. Across the entry road is the 7 mile Chessie Trail with much walking along the Maury River & rock cliffs.Only 4 miles from historic downtown Lexington and universities, shopping, dining, and art galleries; close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia Horse Center and an Appalachian Trail head. A stay in Highlands Cabin is a real treat anytime of the year.More

We really enjoyed our stay! The hosts put a lot of thought into decor and items in the cabin to make it feel comfortable. They're also very responsive via text if you have questions. The cabin is so cozy and the historic charm is perfect! We really loved our stay, very much appreciate the hosts, and would come again! The view from the maze path is GLORIOUS. The walk up is tough if you're not up on your cardio but completely worth it so keep pushing! Just as a heads up for folks' vehicles- the driveway/ road up to the cabin is a dirt/gravel road and is a bit tricky (if you're not used to those types of roads) and is quite steep at times but it's totally possible as we made it with our regular 4 door sedan. Just make sure to start up the hill from the main road at a good speed.

This cabin was amazing, comfy, clean and close to Lexington. We did the little walk in the back of the cabin, wow..what a great sunset from atop that hill. It was so quiet, great place to disconnect from all. It had everything we needed for the weekend. i am already recommending to friends! Thank you Antonia for your hospitality!!

Enjoyed staying in this secluded and quiet cabin with its close proximity to town, attractions, and all conveniences. It is a wonderful property to hike, explore, and see the breathtaking mountain views, especially during leaf change season. Cabin had everything we needed, and deer were our special visitors. No problem climbing mountain on gravel road to cabin, in a two-wheel drive car, even in the rain. The owner and manager were fantastic to work with, and very accomodating when a technology barrier prevented editing the booking dates.

Pros: Cabin is in an excellent location near to sightseeing and shopping. Cabin lot is private and serene. Kitchen and bathroom are outfitted nicely. Bedroom is very comfortable. Cons: Porch screens need significant repairs. Porch floor has mold/mildew from leaks. Cabin needs thorough cleaning/dusting. Bathroom lamp not working (need bulb?)

Had a great stay. Woke up to deer in the yard. Had everything we needed. Will be booking this cabin again soon. This is a great retreat from a busy world. You can not see or be seen by anyone from this location. Yet only a few minutes from anything you could need.

This cabin was a great combination of tranquility and character while still being 10-15 minutes from just about everything we wanted to visit. Being able to bring our dogs and have so many great places to hike with them was a huge plus. Thanks!

We were finishing up our trip out East by wanting to relax for a day or two before heading back home.Could not have been much better.Very quiet and secluded location in a rustic cabin,but decently furnished with enough modern conveniences .We even saw a few deer outside feeding along the driveway.Exactly what we were looking for.

What a great experience staying at the cabin. The cabin was well set up and very original. Fantastic secluded spot yet close for access to the blue ridge parkway. We will definitely be looking to book again in the future when we come back to the US. Thanks for making the trip memorable!
