Today is the anniversary of the day that I married my best friend and we drove away on our honeymoon in this car, a convertible 1965 Buick Skylark, to drive the Blue Ridge Parkway from Virginia to North Carolina. In celebration, I thought I’d share this amazing song from one of my husband’s favorite bands, Chatham County Line’s Honeymoon, a group from Chapel Hill, North Carolina—and my former neighbors.
Here’s the latest cabin I’m drooling over, and, alas, missed the acquisition opportunity–its already sold!
A two-story 19th century quarter-logged cabin with giant hearth and lots of tiny paned windows located in Bolar, Virginia’s Lower Meadow. Situated on 54 acres of wooded meadow, only one building can be seen from the property, owing in part to its access to National Forest land.
After discovering this gem, I had a heart-to-heart with my husband about a cabin needing to be in the five-year plan…and I surprised myself by actually getting him to agree that it should be a high-priority goal (so far its in my top three with traveling and getting a real job with benefits).
Its Friday, and for me, that always means time for a well-earned respite at week’s end.

I’ll leave you with this beauty of a property, 51 rolling acres just below Bald Knob with views all the way to Virginia’s Peaks of Otter is currently available to the lucky reader in possession of 1.1. The property includes a turn-key reconstructed cabin dating from 1790 and a modern addition that is really very well done, even if a little too new. Complete with an outdoor shower and wrap-around porches, items on my future-cabin essentials list!
Located in the Allegheny Highlands of Bath County, Virginia, (where we were married last summer) I’m planning on making an appointment as a ‘prospective buyer’ in October if it’s still available when we’re in the area for Washington & Lee’s Homecoming…
