My husband and I stayed in the "Mountain Paradise" cabin that is owned by Lydia cabins but is located some distance away from the main cabins and lodge area. We loved the cabin and its private location. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen was well appointed and the hot tub was terrific.

We were in the area for a family wedding about a twenty minute drive away so we didn't get to spend as much time relaxing at the cabin as we would have liked but when we were there it was delightful.

Had a bit of trouble with the front door lock and the TV didn't work the first day but someone came over and fixed and who needs TV in a beautiful place like this.

Lydia mountain cabins provided the perfect quick weekend get away where we could relax and rejuvinate. Perfect for solitude & getting away from computers/cell phones. Dogwoods were all in bloom. Hot tub was spotless. Wine tour was great and our driver was very friendly and informative. I would do this at least once a year.

The bed was a little uncomfortable and the fire place didn't work, but fortunately it was warm out and the wine helped us get past the uncomfortable bed!

Room Tip: All of the cabins seem to face the woods so we hardly saw another person the entire time.

Wonderful cabins in the rural Virginia countryside. Accommodation is rustic but comfortable including good beds, a well-equipped kitchen and a private hot tub. Every cabin is very secluded and also has an outdoor firepit and barbecue. Well-located a few miles from Skyline Drive, Lydia Mountain is an ideal place to get away from it all.

Try to arrive before dark to have a much easier time finding not only the gravel road turnoff but also your cabin, which could be a mile or so up the gravel road. This is a good choice for those wanting to be close to Skyline Drive, or even those looking for more unique accommodations near Charlottesville or Harrisonburg. Our cabin had a full kitchen, so we brought food. The road to the cabins is gravel and can be steep in spots, so on a motorcycle it can be tricky, especially in the dark, but this is a great place and we will definitely be back. .

This is our third time here at Lydia and it has now become almost a tradition. This time around, we stayed for 2 nights unlike the earlier visits, and enjoyed every moment of it. They have simplified the check-in process so that now you no longer have to go up to the little country store up ahead but can directly go up to your cabin. All the cabins we've stayed in have been clean, thoughtfully equipped and comfortably furnished. We did have a little trouble once with the movie player, but a call to the maintenance folks was quickly attended to. Whether you are curling up before a crackling fire with a chilled glass of wine or sitting back in the hot tub or exploring the winding trails during the day or gazing up at the sparkling night sky, this place has all that it takes to transport you to a blissful world away from it all.
Though we thoroughly recommend just taking it easy up in the cabin and surroundings, one could always take a winery tour at a couple of vineyards not far away. Stanardsville, the nearest town does not offer too much by way of activities, but we enjoyed driving around the nearby areas and exploring the parks and woods to catch sight of the local birds. And if you are staying longer, Charlottesville isn't that far off.
Next time, we plan to visit during Fall.
