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 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

About the neighbourhood
Highlands cabin sits in its own glen on its own private road. Originally built in 1775, it is a true piece of American history. (Of course AC, plumbing and quality bedding have been added for your comfort). View nature and enjoy peaceful nights from your own screened in back porch. The cabin is perfect for a secluded getaway.

We respect your privacy & safety therefore we do not give the exact address to your cabin until you pick up your information packet with driving instructions to the farm & your cabin. Follow it exactly & you will be putting your feet up in approximately 10 minutes :) The area is amazingly beautiful. From certain places on t...
