We stayed in the Boys Cabin over UVA graduation weekend in May 2013. After reading all the positive reviews, we were VERY disappointed! Quaint is a misnomer. Way too run down and old to pay $300+ a night. Stink bugs were EVERYWHERE in our room. I did not sleep listening to them buzz around all night. We captured at least 30 a night. Then the locusts showed up. Then there were small roaches in the bathroom. The shower was awful. I have never felt so ripped off in my life. The cabin needs a lot of renovating to be close to quaint. Perhaps putting better seals around the doors would help the insect problem.
The lighting is atrocious. I guess they don't want you to see the bugs or shabbiness.
Breakfast was good one morning and the next tasted like a microwaved waffle. Definitely not homemade as advertised. Coffee was good. Dinner was excellent on the night we ate there.
Most positive thing I can say is that the owner and his children were delightful and trying hard but our room was far from a 4 star accommodation. I have stayed in many old inns. This cabin was awful!!!!!
