     Description 


AN OUTDOORSMEN RETREAT! The Cheyenne is a 25 acre country estate
sitting on the Appomattox River. Your very own private retreat where
you can ride your Horse or mountain bike, hike, swim or just
relax. Enjoy all the outdoors has to offer or just relax over coffee
and watch the dramatic sunrises and sunsets on our covered porch or
read or snooze in one of our hammocks.

As quaint and charming as any country cabin or cottage yet more
luxurious than a rustic retreat. This beautiful cedar home sleeps 9
comfortably with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and is ideal for hunters,
fishermen, horseman, family vacationers, weekend getaways, reunions,
small group of friends, and bridal parties & honeymooners.

Horsepower Haven is our huge outbuilding converted to a sports lounge
and bunkhouse with a pooltable, air hockey table, lounge, bunks and
plenty of room to rollerblade or ride your bikes indoors, dance, or
exercise. You can bring the entire family and make lasting memories
camping in Horsepower Haven. It sleeps up to 10 people in bunkhouse
style.

AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO LEAVE YOUR FURRY FAMILY MEMBERS AT HOME,
BECAUSE THE CHEYENNE IS PET FRIENDLY AND WE LOVE HORSES!

Bring your bathing suits & innertubes and float down our shallow
lazy river, along the riverbanks, around the bend, ending at our
swimming hole; or enjoy the sandy beach at Holliday Lake State
Park.

Bring your boats and jet skis. We are close to the James River and
Smith Mountain Lake.

Bring your snowbds & skis or use ours - we are just 30 minutes from

bring 2 adult sons. We are athletic and travel the national
motocross circuit. My daughter was the first female to win an AMA
motocross championship. But we never pass up the opportunity to
relax and have some fun where ever we go.

We would be happy to exchange vacation homes for beach properties,
Lake Properties, Florida Properties, South Carolina Properties, North
Carolina Property, European properties, possible other areas. We
love to trail riding our motorcycles or mountain bikes, hiking,and
enjoy the water, sunshine and boating.

We are a new resort and have just begun to exchange houses

our vacation property. We have completed 3 vacation exchanges.
