Pipestem Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, Loft, Sleeps 6

You can't buy serenity--but you can rent it!

NOW BOOKING SUMMER VACATIONS!

PLEASE NOTE: IN SUMMER, WE RENT BY FULL WEEK ONLY, FROM SATURDAY TO SATURDAY.

AND IT'S NOT TOO LATE FOR A ROMANTIC SPRING WEEKEND GETAWAY.

Iona Cabin is located on Big Creek, just half a mile from the Greenbrier River and some of the best small-mouth bass fishing in the East, and three miles from the confluence of the Greenbrier with the New River. Bluestone Lake, the New River Gorge National River, and several state parks and wildlife management areas make this one of West Virginia's most scenic locations.

With Iona Cabin rental, you get exclusive use of the entire 11 acre, secluded property, accessed by a private, graveled driveway from Big Creek Road. It is entirely wooded, and the beautiful, cascading Big Creek tumbles right through it, with your private walking trail alongside the stream. Just below the cabin itself, you have your own natural ''swimming hole.''

New! We added air conditioning for the 2012 summer season. We have a new, tile shower, and an automated well water filtration system.

Worry Free Zone!: Iona Cabin is a two-bedroom log cabin hideaway, with two adjoining decks. It has a great room with cathedral ceiling, fully-equipped kitchen, master bedroom, and shower-bath on the first floor. Upstairs, the loft contains a second bedroom and a half-bath. There is an outdoor shower below the deck.

Iona Cabin is a quiet, get-away retreat. You’ll find your anxiety level plummeting as you enter the long, private driveway, and you'll want to spend days on end just luxuriating in the peace and serenity of this beautiful and tranquil, natural setting of almost eleven acres, clad in hardwood, hemlock, and native rhododendron. If inner harmony is your goal, Iona Cabin is your destination.

Wild IS Wonderful in West Virginia!: Iona Cabin is also a great home base for an active, outdoor vacation. Whether you like fishing or hunting; skiing on water or snow; river 'tubing,' white-water rafting, kayaking, or canoeing; hiking or mountain biking; golfing; horse-back riding; or sight-seeing, Iona Cabin is right in the center of a wealth of recreational opportunities--that is, if you can tear yourself away from your own private swimming hole on the babbling Big Creek.

Nearby Hinton is an authentic West Virginia, Appalachian town, quaint and charming, filled with friendly and hospitable people. As yet unspoiled by big city ways and influences, Hinton is blessed with natural beauty, access to rivers, lakes, and mountains, proximity to state and national parks and forests, and easy accessibility from urban centers in Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina, making it an ideal base for get-away excursions whether for quiet retreat or active, outdoor fun.

Rustic Does Not Have To Mean Primitive! Enjoy blessed quiet and tranquility, yet stay connected to home and work through smart phone and laptop, via wireless internet. Iona is a great setting for completing a project, or for having quality time with someone you love.

The satellite WiFi means you never have to feel cut-off, even when you are enjoying the splendid isolation of the West Virginia woodlands. Your smart phone will bring in your email, also.

Donald is Canon for Mission and Transitions in the Episcopal Diocese of WV. Linda is Chair of Humanities at Mountwest Community and Technical College. We have two adult sons.

Donald Vinson purchased this cabin in 2006

This was a beautiful property, in an area yet undiscovered by east-coast tourism. We have space, privacy, quiet, and great natural beauty only 3 hours from our home.

The acreage, the natural landscape, the creek to play in, and the lack of close neighbors make for a very peaceful setting.

Nice, scenic, relaxing cabin on the creek

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 24, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
We stayed recently and really enjoyed the wilderness with a friend and our dog. The cabin has a really nice spot on the creek, and the 2 decks and secluded lot allow you to enjoy it all peacefully. The cabin had everything we needed and we were able to cook several great meals and enjoy the woods. The area around the cabin and Hinton is quite beautiful too, a nice place to visit. Maybe we will try some rafting next time. Recommended for anyone seeking a few relaxing days with mother nature.

Love This Cabin!

We loved this cozy cabin and all its ammenities, especially the fully stocked kitchen. We made many meals and enjoyed board games by the fire with friends who live in Hinton. Mostly, we enjoyed the seclusion of the property. The creek was flowing full speed and the roar of the water kept me on the deck in frigid temperatures. It snowed and the creek iced over and melted later that same day. Gorgeous! We plan to bring the kids back in seasonal weather to enjoy the swimming hole and the sights and activities of the area. Loved the small rivertown atmosphere in Hinton. We will definitely be back. Thank you for such a wonderful vacation!

A little Family Get-a-way

This was our second time booking at Iona and we just loved it still. Everything was clean, organized and cozy. There have been quite a few upgrades from last year, some necessary and some not necessary but definitely made the little cabin in the woods more "modern" I guess I could say. We are looking forward to booking again in the future.

A little disappointed

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 27, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
I loved IONA cabin and the woods, as well as the surrounding areas. I do agree with other reviewers that the water system for showering needs to be updated and the cabin could use a major deep cleaning. Additionally, the photo of the cabin and entry does not show the descending terrain and the walk down to carry luggage in from the parking area. That was a difficulty for me and my friend, as we had no men with us, just us two old ladies! I was also upset to find after the fact that my guest had no closet upstairs! There is a locked room in the loft area that might be the closet, but no way to know for sure. I have emailed Donald and Linda of my observations and have made some suggestions also as to smoke detectors and non-skid safety strips for the steps. I am sure that over time they will address these issues. I still would not hesitate to return to Iona cabin! It is well stocked and would actually sleep 7 if the couch was utilized. The views are spectacular and it is a lovely and peaceful location.

Owner's Response: A little confusing, as we have scrubbed this place high and low--windows, floors, upholstery, the works.

We DO have functioning smoke detectors, and always have had, plus a CO detector as well.

In keeping with the "rustic, not primitive" theme of the cabin, the upstairs bedroom has attractive wall hooks for hanging clothing, if desired--I could put in an armoire, but it will take up floor space needed for the single bed, which does get used and is a heck of lot more comfortable than the sofa! More than six are really too many for this floor space and septic system, though we have permitted an extra child.

The water system IS updated, and at considerable cost! We had it serviced 3 times this season. But we still provide bottled spring water for consumption.

All decking has been power washed for better traction, though I will also add anti-skid strips as well.

All this said, we do try to be clear that elderly infirm guests might have difficulty without assistance, and that the property might be unsuitable for small children. I've already ordered a cart for guests to use transporting luggage and supplies.

Iona Cabin is not a resort hotel. No room service or bellmen. It's a cabin. Surrounded by woods, with wildlife and all that that entails. Enjoy.

Beautiful and Quiet

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 7, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We loved our stay at Iona cabin. The cabin is quaint and not too fancy. The cabin is spacious and it was equipped with everything we needed and more! We have stayed at many places in the past and have never had a better stocked cabin. We loved sitting outside in the evening as the sun set and the stars came out along with some bats! We loved the outside shower and used it often because the septic system can not handle everyone wanting showers and the washing of clothes etc. I don't know if the system needs a update or what. The area around Pipestem is beautiful and there is tons to do there. We hiked, shopped, went in the ghost town of Thurman, and took a jet boat ride. The white water rafting and zip lining are pretty expensive so budget that into your vacation. We would return to Iona cabin in a heartbeat if we could. Thanks Donald and Linda for being wonderful hosts and allowing us to stay at your cabin.
