Just finished an excellent three-day weekend at the cabin. 2.5 hours from DC with 9 friends. We had a perfect weekend with a nice walk to a creak trail from the house (with several creek crossings) on Saturday and then drove twenty minutes to High Knob Fire Tower trail (3 mile loop that took about 1.5 hours). The rest of the time was spent lounging at the cabin, cooking food, playing Settlers of Catan and watching movies.
Katie and her husband were extremely responsive and provide tremendous customer service. Steve stopped by to check in on us after I mentioned having trouble getting a fire lit in the fire place and extra supplies were sent up when we asked for them.
Would definitely recommend this place to anyone. VRBO places can be hit or miss. this was a hit!
