Welcome to Heavenly Haven
A family friend introduced us to Craig Creek in the spring of 2007. We were instantly enamored by the clean water and beautiful mountain views. The creek is perfect for tubing, canoing, and fishing. The surrounding Jefferson National forest offers some of the best hiking and hunting in the area.
A week’s vacation at Craig Creek in the summer of 2007 cemented our love for the area and we began to look for a place to call our own. As we began our search we learned that property on the creek is rarely sold, and is often passed from one generation to the next. We had almost abandoned the idea when we happened upon the find of a lifetime……our Heavenly Haven.
In 1997 a local attorney purchased the 1.3 acre creek-front lot near Oriskany, Virginia with the intent to build a fishing and hunting “getaway”. In 2000, he commissioned Mennonite carpenters to construct the unique cedar cabin and adjacent 10' x 20' barn from Southern Living’s “Deer Run” design.
The beautifully detailed interior features tongue-and-groove knotty wood pine. Craftsmanship, attention to detail, and quality materials; all trademarks of the Mennonite builder; are abundant throughout.
The dining area features seating for 6 at a wonderful table hand crafted on the property. 2 large windows provide scenery while you dine. A deer antler chandelier, with dimmer, sets the mood for family meals or romantic dinners.
The master bedroom features an inviting king size oak bed with comfortable memory foam mattress. The bed is adorned with high quality linens, perfectly suited to the country setting. Two large windows provide plenty of natural sunlight and scenic views of the surrounding forestry. The ceiling fan, candles, and overhead dimmer allow you to set temperature and lighting perfectly for your comfort and mood. A full bath, with enclosed shower and tub is conveniently located next to the master bedroom.
The centerpiece of the great room is a breathtaking stone fireplace which extends from the floor to the 20 ft cathedral ceiling. A lush queen size sleeper sofa, antique cedar chest, and oversize chairs make this room an inviting place to enjoy conversation and a book or DVD from our library by the fire. The ceiling fan and overhead lighting allow you to create the perfect atmosphere for relaxation.
The fully equipped kitchen contains everything you’ll need to cook a gourmet meal, or simply heat up a pizza. Electric stove and oven, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, pots and pans, crock-pot, dishes, utensils, and spices are provided. A large window over the kitchen sink provides views of the creek while you cook or socialize.
At the top of the solid pine staircase is the sleeping loft. In the loft you’ll find two comfy double size log beds and a set bunk beds. The bottom bunk has a full size mattress, and can sleep 2. The top bunk has a double mattress and sports views of the creek through the adjacent window. A collection of toys, games, children’s videos, and a VCR are available for your use. 2 large windows provide lots of sunlight and gorgeous views.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay at your cabin. We enjoyed ourselves
very much. The cabin has a very homey feel to it. We loved the fires, comfy
couches, and beautiful decor. It was the perfect way to bring in the new year.
We will definitely pass the word along to our friends and family. Thanks again
for allowing us to have such an enjoyable new year!

Happy New Year!
Simply great! If you are looking for a perfect, almost luxurious cabin in the Jefferson National Forest with an amazing wild river in your backyard, book THIS one! We had such a great time, saw otters, beaver, snakes and tons of deer and other wildlife. Secluded, with an absolutely gorgeous landscape around, this cabin offers everything for me as an outdoor enthusiasts - our dog loved it and learned to swim in strong currents. I went biking 8 days out of 10 in Roanoke (Carvin's Cove trails) which is about 45 minutes to drive. Trails there are among the best on the whole East Coast, so we plan to come again and can only recommend it for everyone loving the outdoors.
The cabin was more beautiful than we had expected! The scenery was awesome! We totally enjoyed our stay there. We wished it could have been longer but we had to continue our journey. I would recommend this place to everyone. It was the highlight of our trip.
A few members of my family met at the cabin for a late Christmas family get together. We all loved the cabin. It was beautiful & very clean. We really appreciated the beautiful fireplace because the weather was very cold on our visit. There was a big creek in the back & a view of some mountains. I got a lot of nice photos of the scenery & some of family also. None of us wanted to leave, even the 4 year old. We made some great memories & we all want to meet up at the cabin again in the future.
It rained every day, but we had a wonderful weekend. After making a cozy fire in the fire place, my daughter's boyfriend gave her a ring and asked her to marry him. She said yes and we all celebrated! We will never forget the beautiful fall leaves, the river otters playing in the rain and the welcoming cabin. We found games that even 20 year olds enjoyed. There was a minor housekeeping problem that Mike quickly resolved and our security deposit was promptly returned. We hope to return.
If people knew how wonderful this little cabin is, it would be booked all year long and I'd never get on the schedule again! So I won't say much except that if you're looking for a true getaway, this is the spot. Absolutely perfect for our family. And Mike and Deanna are wonderful, patient people to work with.
We spent our vacation at Heavenly Haven with family and friends and were in love with the property and home as soon as we came through the gates! It was truly a luxury experience and many 'extras' included. Completely relaxing home and location--we had so much fun in the water; catching fish, tadpoles, crawdads,(we let them go!) tubing and going out in the canoe--we ate meals on the screened in porch; played horse shoes and took pictures--so many happy memories!! Thank you and we hope to spend more vacations at Heavenly Haven!
