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.
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!

Lazy Creek Cabin is listed on Vrbo as a couples’ retreat near Roanoke. It is secluded, well-appointed, and equipped with everything you’ll need, including an outdoor hot tub. You can hike the nearby trails or take a short drive to Smith Mountain Lake. Alternatively, you can stay put and sit on the rockers to enjoy the spacious yard. A few gobblers or hens might find their way to the grounds, but no one will disturb your peace.

This rustic Vrbo retreat is the best place to breathe fresh air and see the undulating Shenandoah Mountains. When you book Highland Nest, you’re going somewhere secluded but furnished with high-end hotel-like amenities. There are two bedrooms, and the place is big enough for four guests. You don’t have to go far to immerse yourself in nature. The George Washington National Forest is your next-door neighbor. A local guide can be arranged to go on fly fishing expeditions with you in the mountain streams.

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.

An Airbnb luxury cabin with an outdoor hot tub is already an excellent proposition. What if the host throws in a private bar? This hideaway in the Shenandoah Valley has its own garden pub, a converted toolshed where you can drink to your heart’s content. Come and stay for a spell and enjoy this modern cabin with many windows. This excellent accommodation in Luray, Virginia, offers a glimpse of the natural surroundings at every turn. You probably won’t think of going anywhere else for sightseeing.

Rural Virginia wants to make your acquaintance, and Gum Tree Lodge invites you for a few days of relaxation. This A-frame cabin has a front and back porch that is open to the surrounding woods. Step out to hike established trails, and come back in time for dinner. The loft bedroom is a charming and comfortable place to rest. The entire house is a project on sustainable living, built with reclaimed materials. This Airbnb lodge is a first-rate option for friends who want a place of their own for the weekend. It’s also an excellent choice for couples in search of a secluded hideaway.

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.

Buck Lair is a Vrbo getaway with upscale amenities. It may look rather unassuming from the outside. After all, it’s still a cabin in the north slope of Gap Mountain, about 8 miles (14 kilometers) from Blacksburg, Virginia. Once inside, you will see that no expense was spared to create a comfortable space, with decorative highlights and modern conveniences. You can cook in the full kitchen or opt to grill your favorite meat outdoors. The cabin is a spacious hideaway in an expansive property that features a pond and a picnic area.

Imagine sitting on comfortable chairs on a beautiful wraparound deck with uninterrupted views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the valley below. Shenandoah is a majestic place, and you can start marveling at it from the comforts of your vacation cabin about 10 miles (16 kilometers) south of Luray. This fully equipped Vrbo cabin is a vacation home with a fire pit, a hot tub, and some of the best views in Virginia. Ask the host about the route to the cabin and what vehicles are ideal for the terrain.

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!
