7 Secluded Cabin Rentals in Virginia

Get away from the crowded city to the mountains, the river or the ocean at these secluded cabins in Virginia.

Sometimes, you just want – or need – to get away. Far away. Away from the noise, the lights, the people, and sometimes, even the cell phone reception. Whether you’re in search of mountains and forestssea and sand, or something else entirely, Virginia has plenty of options for you.

Once you get past the traffic and the strip malls and the toll roads, things start to spread out a bit, and the faster you go, the slower the pace of the life around you.

When your local radio station starts to static and fade, scan for a new one and start to get the feel for your getaway. Turn down a country road, past fallow fields and wooden churches, and roll down the windows to breathe a new air. Inhale the wheat fields, the salt water marsh, the mountain forest, or whatever your getaway of choice leads you to. Breathe in renewal and rest and just be for a bit – away from your daily routine and into the moment.

These secluded cabins in Virginia are the ideal places to do just that.

Waterfront Retreat Near Williamsburg

The inland waterways of Virginia were where some of the first Europeans settled here in 1607, but indigenous people lived in the area for probably millennia, living off the sea and the fertile land. With it’s beauty and serenity, it’s easy to see what makes this spot a perfect respite.

The Waterfront Cottage is right on the river, with views of the sunrise and sunset from the master bedroom. The biggest draw here is the water. Fish from the dock, kayak, or swim in the gentle Ware River.

There are plenty of ways to just put your feet up and relax, too. The hot tub offers privacy and views to die for, but so does the screened porch, and the bay breeze will blow all your cares away.

This waterfront retreat is off the beaten path, for sure, but is still close enough to drive to Wiliamsburg, Jamestown, or Richmond if you feel yourself craving activities that do not involve the great outdoors.

Modern Cottage on the Northern Neck

The Northern Neck of Virginia is the bit of land between the Potomac and the Rappahannock Rivers, east of the fall line of the Potomac near Fredericksburg. It’s rural, it’s water oriented, it’s sparsely populated, it’s community-oriented. It’s homey.

The Sometimes Cottage on Taylor Creek puts the best of the Northern Neck all in one crisp, clean and modern package. Travel through farmland, to the creek, to the solitary cottage on the water, where you can move right in and feel like you’re part of the family.

You can spend your day on an airy screened porch, or sit out by the water and watch your friends and family kayak on the creek.

The Grapes” cottage is appropriately nestled on the edge of a vineyard, with plenty of room for families and dogs. The cottage itself is almost an A-frame, with a stone fireplace to warm you in fall, winter, or spring. In summer, choose a hammock by the vines and dream of wines to come.

With a great big bunk room, The Grapes makes for a great multi-family gathering spot. Everyone can join in outdoor games like croquet and cornhole, or settle into a comfy chair to read. Evenings call for family time around the fire pit, and stargazing like you wouldn’t believe.

Woodsy Retreat Near the Water on the Eastern Shore

On Virginia’s Eastern Shore, the strip of land separating the Chesapeake Bay from the Atlantic Ocean, life revolves around the water. The Cabin at Holden’s Creek gets you right to the middle of the maritime action, with water access to Holden’s Creek which runs right into the bay.

The cabin, built on a farm, looks straight out of a storybook with its weathered wood siding and Adirondack chairs on the porch. Roll up with your buddies and your boats for a weekend (or full week) of retreat, relaxation, and rowdy games of pool and darts in this wood-paneled cabin.

When you’re prepped to wind down, the stone fireplace is ready and waiting for your fire-building skills, and the frogs in the pond outside will serenade you to sleep. The sleeping loft holds three queen beds, so you’ll feel like you’re at (a very comfy) camp with your besties.
