    What a wonderful place to stay and relax! We had zero service the whole time and it was amazing! The exterior property is amazing and plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy sites and sounds from the wraparound porch. Interior is far larger than expected! So much character too! Comfy chairs, sofas, beds, pillows and a million blankets, my all time favorite! Tons of hiking trails near to the house! We didnt go to any local attractions as the purpose for me is to surround myself with the outdoors, but we have plans to check some out in the future! The kitchen is fully stocked, and the bath comes with a ton of towels! I noticed some reviews regarding the tub and the water temp. Easy! Fill it full with just hot water as it goes, and then add cold as needed. You can use the huge pot to boil some additional water as needed! It remained hot and we all enjoyed some tub time! Thank you for an amazing stay, we couldn't be more thankful!

  • Much needed getaway!


    This was the perfect getaway for our family of 4! We needed some time just the 4 of us. The house is beautiful and quaint. We were very comfortable and had all we needed. The property is picturesque with lots to explore. We loved having the creek run through tue property and hearing the rushing water while we were outside. For a family who isn’t particularly outdoorsy but wanted an outdoor experience, this was perfect. Almost like clamping. We were out in the middle of nowhere but with modern conveniences such as a big modern bathroom and full kitchen. The house is fully renovated but kept the historic charm and character. Beds were super comfortable, lots of towels for the bath, and a kitchen stocked with all your needs for cooking a meal. We were close to Natural Bridge, caverns, Virginia Safari Park and visited all of them. Disclaimer: there is NO cell service. This was a bonus with 2 teenagers but I did worry what we would do in an emergency. I would have felt better with a land line. Highly recommend this beautiful and quaint cabin! We will definitely visit again!
