The Cabin on Moon Road

25 Moon Road, Sperryville, VA 22740
  • Offered at $489,000


Many people dream of the perfect little cabin in the woods, but few get the chance to own one of their own.   Even harder to find is one near the most sought-after hiking and recreation area in the mid-Atlantic, and even harder still is to find a cabin with privacy, fantastic river frontage, gorgeous mountain views, and world class restaurants and hiking just steps from the front door.   The Cabin on Moon Road is just such a rare find – a well maintained and cozy cabin with space to while away the weekend in a hammock staring at the mountains, spending a pleasant few hours digging in the garden, or enjoying a glass of wine in your own private river frontage after a day’s hiking in the nearby Shenandoah National Park.


While the cabin has a distinct 1970’s vibe, it’s thoroughly up-to-date in every other way.  The warm earthy tones of the knotty pine interiors and the woodstove make it a cozy retreat in the fall and winter, and the large windows and sliding doors opening to the wrap-around deck, make it a wonderful indoor-outdoor living space in during warmer months.   The cabin is an ideal space for a couple by themselves, a couple with small children, or a group of friends on a weekend retreat.  Two bedrooms and a loft offer several sleeping arrangements.

  • Great Room(23 x 22) – This large somewhat octagonal room with knotty pine paneling and pine floors features large sliding doors and numerous windows of the property beyond.  A spiral staircase wraps around the woodstove flue and leads to a small loft. There are built in book cases and generous space for a dining table and chairs.
  • Kitchen – part of the great room and features maple cabinetry, a large island with seating, an electric range, dishwasher, and Fridge/Freezer.
  • Hallway –  Slate flooring and front and back doors, access to great room, and steps to the bedrooms and bath.
  • Laundry –  Large closet with full sized washer and dryer.
  • Small Bedroom (12 x 9) –  Cozy room with exposed beams, pine floors, bay window and closet.
  • Hall Bath (12.5 x 7) –  Large vanity, stone tiled floors and shower/tub combo.
  • Large Bedroom (14 x 11) –  Large bedroom with double closets, pine floors and exposed beams.
  • Wrap-around Porch –  large porch that wraps around Great Room with large dining area at the back of the house with steps down to the lawn.

Surrounding the cabin are lovely lawns filled with specimen trees and shrubs, including hydrangea, buddleia, dogwoods, and crape myrtles.  In addition to the landscaping, there is a fenced area for a vegetable garden, and restful places for swings and hammocks to take in the mountain views.  Outbuildings include a small shed and covered wood rack.  Woodlands surround the lawns on all four sides for complete privacy.  A fenced car park has space for up to six vehicles.  In addition to the beautiful mountain views, there is a woodland path through the lower portion of the property that leads to wonderful river frontage on the Hughes River with several potential swimming holes.  The Hughes is a beautifully clear rocky river that is stocked with trout and native fish species.
