We came to this area for an “American History” tour and felt this cabin was a perfect location for visiting many areas. Our first stop was Lexington VA – we hired a personal tour guide who was wonderful and catered our tour to our liking (we had three teenage girls with us). It was a great day hearing about the lives of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.
Then, of course, our trip to Monticello – unbelievably awesome “must see” – took us 3 hours even with teens that usually like to rush through things. Michie Tavern & James Monroe’s home were good, but if you have to pick one – do Monticello.
We couldn’t make time for Montpelier because we needed a change of pace and went up to Luray Caverns – a definite “must see” and worth the 1-hour drive. Also loved the Christmas Museum there!
This has been a great trip for us in a very nice cabin.
