10 Best Log Cabins In Virginia, USA - Updated 2023

| 5 min read

There’s no place more apt to spend a weekend of relaxation than in Virginia, home to eight past presidents of the United States. This state in the southeast on the Atlantic coastline is known for its museums and monuments. But it’s also a place of fine wineries, beaches, seafood, and peanuts. You can hold out on the peanuts if you are allergic. Still, there is plenty of good stuff for food lovers, at the Old Dominion. What they call the urban-rural divide is very palpable in Virginia, which makes it a wonderful place to explore. Its rich history and bountiful sceneries should be enough motivation to make you check out the best log cabins in Virginia, to find a quaint place to stay in the area. Find out more about these cabins below.

1. 1. Cute escape on a beautiful farm (from USD 198)

If a log cabin on a farm, with lodging for horses, sounds like paradise to you, then head out to Lazy Acres. There aren’t many places where you can enjoy central heating in winter and breakfast on the covered porch while staring at the lovely lines and curves of the Shenandoah Valley. Don’t fret because this cabin is a great retreat that is still just 5 miles (8 kilometers) from downtown Lexington. The fish pond is worth mentioning because it’s always well-stocked. Contact the Airbnb host for a chance to wake up to misty mornings on a 47-acre (19-hectare) Virginia farm!

4. 4. Modern cabin amid trees (from USD 236)

How do you feel about an Airbnb cabin rental with a deck, that comes with 50 acres (20 hectares) of woods? The cabin is near enough to the road, yet it is completely surrounded by trees and birds. It could be the place to be for your next adventure. Why stay in a hotel when you can experience pioneer and pilgrim life with a modern twist? After all, you still have to cook and maybe check your email once in a while. The cabin is open to couples and families alike, who wish to live for a few days on the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Appomattox, Virginia.

7. 7. Mountain cabin with spectacular views (from USD 313)

Before you reach your exclusive mountain home, you’ll have to cross a low water bridge and climb up a steep driveway. The Airbnb host insists that you need to drive a 4WD/AWD to reach this amazing destination. What a start to a weekend adventure! It’s all yours when you book The Bear Den and get front seats to breathtaking views of George Washington National Forest and Shenandoah River. Don’t expect a rustic cabin in the woods. Instead, be ready to settle in an elegant homestead with a wraparound deck, wood fireplace, and hot tub.

10. 10. Stylish cabin near trails and streams (from USD 325)

Vrbo is keen on providing you with excellent weekend accommodations in Virginia, and there’s no place more highly recommended than this modern cabin in the mountains. Leave the daily grind of the city; it’s not every day that you get the chance to wake up to birdsong. Sleep without streetlights shining through the windows. Bring your fly rods for some serious trout fishing. As soon as you arrive, you will see that not all mountain cabins are created equal. This unique property has a river rock shower room and black walnut kitchen countertops. Moreover, this vacation home sits squarely on 65 acres (26 hectares) of mountain slopes!
