2 bedrooms (master with 4 poster queen bed; 2nd bedroom - 2 singles; sleeper sofa with thick comfy mattress in living room); lots of toys, playhouse, rocking horse, in 'kid's room'; huge screened porch with porch swing and settee loaded with comfy cushions - great spot for morning coffee, watching the local deer.

Additional Information: Handicapped Accessible: The path to the house from the driveway is not smooth. There is one step going into the cabin. Bathroom doorway and bathroom are narrow. Driveway is steep and can be treacherous during winter months. Parking is available on the street but will require walking about 60 ft. up the paved driveway or up a path with about 12 steps on the left side of the cabin.

Kid Friendly: Toy chest and kid's movies on site; kid's love building forts in the surrounding woods, sleeping on the porch in summertime and wading and rock-hopping in the Shenandoah River. Zip line available locally. There's lots of wildlife visible from the screened-in porch.

Smoking Not Allowed: No smoking on the screened porch either.

Hi; Bobby here. We're Northern Virginia transplants to Wild and Wonderful West Virginia! About 15 years ago we purchased a weekend cabin near Harpers Ferry in the mountains (Shannondale) with a 50 mile view of the Shenandoah Valley below. We fell in love with this beautiful area and wonderful local people, and it didn't take long to switch from weekenders to permanent residents! I quickly discovered an abandoned 'shack' a short hike through the woods below our cabin - no doors or windows, holes in the roof, misc. critters living inside, including a few non-living. I purchased this adjoining property and embarked on a 3 month restoration project to turn it into my art studio. New roof, new heating, new plumbing, new windows, skylights - new everything! Shangri-la-de-da!! Thus, 'Moonridge' was created! All of our friends and family who stayed at Moonridge have absolutely LOVED IT, so we decided to share our delightful little hide-away with all of you! Come, relax, and enjoy! Let me pamper you a bit!

Bobby Ericsson purchased this cabin in 2000

We love the natural beauty of this area, the wildlife, the cultural heritage, the history, the quaint little towns, plus we're only an hour from Fairfax, Va., so even though we feel really remote, there is easy access to the big city. It's really the best of all worlds!

Charming and cozy - a perfect Christmas

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 6, 2010

Moonridge Cottage was even more than I had hoped for. My boyfriend and I wanted to do something special to celebrate our Christmas, and thought an out-of-the-way (but convenient) cabin in the woods would be perfect. And it was. I was delighted with the special care that Bobby took to make the cabin cozy and festive. Upon our arrival, the wood stove was burning, the tree decorated, and wine waiting on the table. Fresh bread was served to complete the homey atmosphere. Bobby could not have been more accomodating with our early arrival and late departure. Our stay was wonderful, and will return in the spring to enjoy the next phase of mother nature.

Happy New Year

We couldn't have asked for a more welcoming place to spend a quiet New Year's. The cabin was so cosy that we didn't even mind getting snowed in. But it was beyond our expectations when our host had the snow removed for us so we didn't have to worry about digging out!

Cozy Cabin with a View

  • Submitted: Nov 15, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
My husband, 2 daughters(ages 9 and 14), and I arrived at Moonridge on a cold dark night less than 24 hours after confirming our reservation. We were exhausted following a 3.5 hour drive, 2.5 hours exploring River Riders' Ariel Adventure Park, and grocery shopping. The woods and driveway were pitch dark as we cautiously made our way to the warm glow coming from the cabin windows. As promised, leaves were cleared from the steep driveway, lights were on, and the heat was turned up. Everyone's eyes lit up upon entering our mountainside retreat. The cabin is both whimsical and comfortable - decorated with an eclectic collection of artwork, rustic crafts, travel memorabilia, and welcoming elements reminiscent of (my) grandparent's mountain get-away. We all chipped in to prepare and enjoy a home-cooked meal. We slept well and awoke the following morning to find ourselves in a tree-house completely surrounded by trees, leaves, rocks, and an amazing 180 degree view off the screened deck. We enjoyed biking along the C & O Canal Towpath, a guided Zip-line Canopy Tour along the Potomac, and exploring Historic Harpers Ferry during the day. I pick-up a couple Civil War books at the National Park Bookstore and 3 interesting Bill Campbell pieces at Westwind Potters. Our daughters' LOVED the "Chicken Bones" and Peppermint Sticks from Cool Confectionaries. Each day, we were happy to return the cozy little mountainside cabin for dinner, family games, and quiet reading. We would like to return in the Spring to white-water raft, hike on the Appalachian Trail, and visit Shepardstown. Hopefully Moonridge will be available when we finalize our plans.

Moonridge offers all the comforts of home in a rustic-whimsical package. If you want to escape the noise of everyday life, rest, rejuvenate, and connect with your loved ones; Moonridge is the ideal setting to do so. We enjoyed our stay so much we are tossing around the idea of finding/building a log cabin get-away of our own :-)

Tree House Serenity!!

If peace and quiet is what you are looking for, this is the cabin for you. We rarely left the house. It is very comfortable (the bed is the best we have ever slept in), everything you need for cooking is available, and the screened in porch is very relaxing for reading and sleeping. Only a short drive for groceries and lots of small towns in the area. If you need activity, which we did not, Charlestown is only a short drive away. Highly recommend for couples who want to reconnect--no TV yes!!

Our family stayed at Moonridge for 3 days recently, and we loved it so much, we are hoping to return for a visit before school begins. The mountain air, the hiking, adventure course, Harpers Ferry, helpful neighbors, and home owner make you feel like you are part of the family. Arrived with a fresh loaf of bread that made the most AMAZING sandwiches! Our son claimed the screen porch as his preferred place to sleep. That screen porch is AMAZING. THANK YOU, B, for your hospitality!
