Mouth of Wilson, VA (PRWEB) October 20, 2013
There’s no question that modern life can be stressful. With the spread of first the internet and then smartphones it seems that there is no longer an ‘off’ switch, which allows us to step back and relax. With Google Glass making headlines this week due to its anticipated 2014 consumer launch date, it seems that soon there will be even less chance of escape from the pressures of the modern age.
Stress levels have increased dramatically over the past two decades, with the first ever historical comparison of stress levels across the USA being carried out by Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh . The results were published in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology in 2012. They showed that between 1983 and 2009, stress in the US rose by 18% for women and 24% for men.
With an increasingly hectic pace of life, many people are finding it hard to unwind and recharge their batteries, raising stress levels even more. Thankfully, hidden away in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Highlands, there may finally be the antidote.
Mouth of Wilson, in Grayson County, VA, is a picture perfect spot. The Buck Mountains extend to the horizon in both directions, while forestland packed with deer and wild ponies stretches untamed for miles around. In the centre of it all, in 4.5 acres of land, sits a single log cabin, just waiting to hide its occupants from the world. Anayleen Calama, of Miramar, Florida, comments:
“Finding the log cabin in the midst of such peaceful surroundings was a true delight. I have a stressful job and I often find it hard to switch off. That really wasn’t a problem in Virginia. As soon as we arrived the serenity of the environment seemed to still my nerves. It’s as though there’s some kind of magic in the air there!”
Built in 2007 and featuring a real pine interior, the wood cabin offers the ultimate escape from modern life. No matter where you look, picture windows reveal breathtaking mountain views. This is truly a place where you can take time to stand and stare.
Designed with comfort in mind, the Virginia cabin’s interior is a charming example of the thought that goes into creating perfect log cabin homes. It is a blend of rustic features (such as the delightful wooden flooring and vaulted 20 ft ceiling) and luxurious touches (the master bedroom includes a private bathroom complete with Jacuzzi).
There is no better place to curl up and drop out of modern life. This is truly a vacation for the mind, body and soul. Sit on a rocker on the porch, listening to the bird calls that surround you, or recline in the garden’s swing chair, watching deer pick their way through the trees to graze cautiously in the forestland.
For those wanting more active involvement with nature, hiking opportunities abound. The nearby Grayson Highlands State Park offers incredible natural beauty, while the New River just eight miles away provides canoeing opportunities for those looking to spend time on the water.
As if all of this weren’t magical enough, the mountains become drenched with snow during the winter months, transforming the already beautiful landscape into a stunningly picturesque winter wonderland. Paolo Pellino, a native of Verona in Italy, spent a month in the cabin over Christmas last year with his wife and two young children. He comments:
“Winter at the Virginia log cabin was wonderful. I felt so cosy, curled up inside and with the snow carpeting the landscape all around me. The children loved seeing deer grazing in the early morning and following their tracks in the snow. The whole experience was just blissful.”
Sleeping six to eight people, this log cabin for rent really does provide the ultimate location for the vacation of your dreams. It is the perfect antidote to the pressures of modern life. Forget smartphones, stress levels and the impending Google Glass launch and get back to nature to remember what life is all about.
