"Into the forest I go... to lose my mind and find my soul." -John Muir

Incredible cabin nestled in the center of 70 very private acres. Relax and unwind under bright stars and listen to the night sounds of frogs, crickets, owls, and coyotes.

Close proximity to James River and tubing, UVA, and many wineries. You will see millions of stars and gain the serenity that can only come from unplugging from the world for a few days.

Only 20 minutes away from all that Charlottesville has to offer!

The space
Cabin is conveniently located in the heart of the Virginia wine, beer and cider trail. While many popular attractions await you, most guests decide that returning to the cabin is the highlight of each day.

You begin to feel it from the moment you turn down into the driveway and meander by the grazing sheep entering the valley where a spring-fed creek gently gurgles as you pass through the canopy of trees shot through with shafts of sunlight. Subconsciously at first, you inhale a little deeper and then exhale just a little slower than usual. The bustle of life begins to fade as nature envelopes you. Crossing over the creek and heading upwards to Serenity Hill, you are greeted by big sky and open fields. As the driveway makes its final bend, H’Owl at the Moon Cabin unfolds.

The corners of your mouth tip upward. Your shoulders rise an inch. Do they seem lighter already? Can’t be…. But then you get out of the car and step into the magic of Serenity Hill and the warm, inviting cabin. You’re on vacation and yet, somehow, you’ve come home. You were meant to be here. Before you know it, you are under her spell.

It’s the place to inspire dreams and make memories; the place to appreciate family and love; the place to restore your balance as a part OF nature, not apart FROM nature. H’Owl at the Moon is an optimal place to clear the mind, restore the soul, and inspire the heart. Find your strength and your center again. Regroup and recharge.

Everywhere you look, regardless of the season, you have company in the form of natural beauty – from the active peep frog colony in Spring to the hummingbirds and butterflies of Summer, from the newly arrived fawns signaling Spring through the flowering fields and firefly soaked evenings of Summer, from the night sounds of owls and coyotes in Fall to the ground nesting birds of Winter, H’Owl at the Moon beckons -- its cabin offering a central respite from which to allow your mind to quiet and your soul to open.

The cabin at H’Owl at the Moon is an authentic log home on nearly 70 acres in beautiful Albemarle County, Virginia. A year-round creek borders the entire eastern side of the property with many small pools and waterfalls. Mowed footpaths cross the fields and provide easy access to walking trails in the forest and a world of exploration.

Guest access
The cabin has excellent outdoor living spaces that bring nature up close. A covered front porch offers a shady spot to relax in the morning with coffee and a full-length back deck on the sunny side of the house offers two BBQs and a picnic table with umbrella. There is also an all-season fire pit with four Adirondack chairs – a perfect place to find anchor as you lose yourself in the sea of night sky as it opens a panoramic view of darkness and splendor.

Inside offers surprising space and luxury. The front door opens to a vaulted great room with beautiful pine floors, tongue-and-groove wood ceiling, exposed beams, and a wall of windows that displays the natural beauty outside. The centerpiece of the great room is a two-story, semi-round window to brighten the space. The kitchen is ready for real cooking. It is fully stocked with quality pots and pans, bake ware, cookie sheets, serving dishes, plates, utensils, wine glasses, etc. The pantry has a fairly extensive spice selection and basic staples.

Other amenities include soapstone countertops, a six-burner gourmet gas range/oven, Keurig coffee maker, large refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, toaster, measuring cups and spoons, mixing bowls, and food storage containers.

The master suite in the loft is warm and inviting. It features wood floors with oriental rugs, a walk-in closet, a sturdy king bed frame made from repurposed barn wood and a plush memory foam pillow top mattress, a spacious private bath with twin vessel sinks and separate shower. The loft also features a cozy chilling area with a TV and DVD player and sofa (along with my epic selection of movies).

The first floor also has a cozy bedroom with two pillow top twin beds and its own private bath featuring a 16” rain shower.

H’Owl at the Moon also has a top of the line amp and speakers connected to a record player along with a collection of classic vinyl and a Bluetooth adaptor for streaming from your phone or tablet. Bring your own, or check out something from our collection of DVDs, books, and records.

We want your stay at H’Owl at the Moon to be as relaxing as possible. That starts with eliminating things to pack. The cabin is thoroughly stocked with bath towels, hand towels, wash cloths, dish soap, body soap, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryers, toilet paper, paper towels, first aid kit, dishwasher detergent, etc. Beds always have freshly laundered sheets, and there are varieties of pillows and blankets to satisfy various preferences stored in the closets. H’Owl at the Moon Cabin is a rare blend of rural tranquility with pampered luxury. It offers all the privacy and solitude of a mountain retreat without giving up any of the comforts of home. We invite you to come and experience its magic.

*** Note that this listing is 'pets considered' please do not send a booking request without first sending an inquiry. I need to know the type and number of pets prior to booking. I don't charge a pet fee but am selective about the number and type of pets I will allow.

*** The stuffed bears you see in cabin were both rescued from a trash pile. I figured that rotting in a garbage heap was about the worst fate for them so I rescued them and brought them to the cabin where we can honor their spirits.

*** There are security cameras on property. They are all external only and there are no cameras or recording devices inside the cabin. The external cameras will be disarmed during your stay (they are only there to monitor the property when the cabin is unoccupied and will be rearmed upon your departure)

Other things to note
Some cell phones work from the property - Verizon is the best. AT&T does not work AT ALL. There is WiFi so if you have a smartphone and enable WiFi calling, it will work just fine inside the cabin.
