Upper Rawley Cabin:

Please Read the Entire Description:

Upper Rawley Cabin is 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom cabin/house just 9 miles west of Harrisonburg, Virginia. This cabins was our home before we started the vacation rental business, but we moved out so that we could continue to grow the business.

The master bedroom has a king size bed upstairs with an adjoining bathroom (with stand-up shower). The other bedroom upstairs has a queen size bed. There are two bedrooms on the first floor, one with a queen size bed and one with a full size bed. The full bath on the first floor has a shower/tub. There is also a loft (with low ceilings and a small kids size door) that has two full size futon mattress in it which is perfect for kids 5 and over or adults up to the age of 25. Past 25 years old the loft is probably not as much fun. :) The house has a screen porch with seating for 4 and a queen size futon as well.

We do allow for one night stays, but there is two night minimum for weekend stays (either Friday and Saturday night or Saturday & Sunday nights).

Pets are welcome but we do require a Pet Fee when pets stay at the cabin. The cabin even has a fenced yard so you don't have to worry about your pets escaping or even walking them unless want to. Just open the door and let out knowing they won't run off.

Upper Rawley Cabin is a great place to see the stars. On clear nights, you can see thousands of stars overhead. It is a beautiful sight. Also during the spring and summer months, you can see humming birds everywhere. We place feeders off the front porch of the house and have personally seen upwards of 20 birds feeding on them at one time.

Checking is 4:00 pm and checkout is 11 am.

The house can fit 12 people. However, at least 4 would need to be children.

Firewood may be purchased upon arrival. We will even have a fire going for you when you arrive if you would like if you let us know ahead of time.

During snow or ice or after heavy rains the roads can at times be muddy. We now have a full sized backhoe available to plow the roads though. We hope to be able to pave the road in the future. We just want our guests to know that mountain roads are not perfect by any means (they are gravel or shale), but we will make sure you can get your car up year round no matter the weather. You can always park at the parking space at the bottom if you'd like to too. There steps to access the house from both the top and the bottom parking areas. :)

Pets are welcome at all of our properties. If you or someone in your group is allergic to pets or anything else (detergent, air fresheners, etc), please let us know in advance so we can discuss this prior to your booking and then also prior to your arrival.

Please note that children are not allowed in the loft due to safety issues.

About Katie and Steven Robert Jones

We came to Virginia from Texas so I (Steven) could finish my college degree, but got into the vacation rental business by accident. :) We have three daughters under the age of 5. We have 8 rescue dogs, 2 rescue cats, 2 ponies, 8 goats & about 50 chickens.

We believe service is what sets us apart in the vacation rental industry. Katie & I personally own every cabin that we manage. We check-in all of our guests personally (sometimes even as late as 2 or 3 in the morning). When you arrive, the lights will be on and you will be welcomed and shown around the cabin, unlike most other rentals where you access a lock box and walk into a dark cold house. If it is Winter time and you let us know in advance that you want a fire, we'll even have a real wood burning fire going for you. We are always available. We live right here on the mountain and we really mean it when we say that we are always available. If you need us at 4 am or have a problem, please do not ever hesitate to let us know. This is all we do 24/7 and we want all of our guests to have an amazing stay. We would be honored if you would allow us the opportunity to serve you.

Katie and Steven Robert Jones purchased this house in 2010

Why Katie and Steven Robert Jones chose Harrisonburg

We wanted to be in the country where our kids and pets could play without having to worry about passing cars. We fell in love with the house the first moment we saw it. It has a rustic, yet modern and updated feel at the same time. We also liked that the cabin bordered the national forest.

What makes this house unique

If you are looking to get away from the fast pace of life, then this is the perfect to relax. The cabin sits just above where the Dry River and Gum Run meet so both rivers are within walking distance from the cabin. Also, there are 3 hiking trails within walking distance of the cabin and numerous others within a very short drive of the cabin.

Could Not Have Had A Better Time, Perfect Setting

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin although it was more of a house than a cabin. It did have a cabin feel, but you could easily call it a house. Everything with the house was in order and clean. We found so many things to do in the area that we are already planning a return trip. The owners checked us in upon arrival and while we've stayed at lots of rental properties, this is the first time we've ever met the owners at check-in which was a nice surprise. The house is larger and nicer than the photos show and the owners were very kind and sincerely offered their services if we needed them for anything. It was only a short drive to town and a nice assortment of restaurants and shopping, yet the house felt like it was nestled into the side of a mountain in the middle of nowhere. The rivers were a short walk down the hill and stone porch was a nice and secluded spot to watch the birds come and go from the feeders. We enjoyed several nice hikes on the mountain too. We will be back and would gladly recommend this house to anyone else.

I'm Shocked By All the 5 Star Reviews...

  • 2 of 5

I read all the reviews from this property and many from the other properties that they own. A few people were surprised by the cleanliness, or lack there of, as well.

When we arrived, it was just as pretty as the pictures make it look. That was a pleasant surprise! The location is a bit tricky, but not a deal breaker (and added to the rustic feel!).

The beds were crazy comfy as was the couch. We had a hard time getting up and going after hiking =) The kitchen was well stocked and worked wonderfully for our family of 5. There was more than enough space in the house, which was nice.

The location is so ideal to do so many things. You are within an hour and a half drive of so many things to do. We hiked to Lower Doyle Falls, it was pretty, but the fact that the return hike was uphill was a little hard to take. We went to Luray Caverns, and all agreed we liked it better than Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. We also hiked to Humpback Rock. It's tough, but TOTALLY worth it!!! We walked through the misting clouds to the most amazing rocks I've ever seen. Highlight of our trip! We went to Ten Thousand Villages after a lunch at Las Chamas, both are a must!

Now to the cleanliness...

There were cobwebs behind the bathroom doors spanning from the frame to the towel rack, nastiness behind the toilet on the floor, the outside porch and stairs were covered in leaves and bark (while it is in the woods, this should have been swept before arrival...it is a rental property, after all), there was green soap residue in the shower, dead bugs in the windowsills, live wasps flying around, a constant ant problem in the kitchen, and the oven, OMG. It was the most disgusting thing I've ever seen, and smelled. We went to cook some pizza and turned it on to preheat. We wondered what the smell was, opened it up, and holy crap, it looked like something exploded 10 years ago and it was never cleaned. YUCK!

Great house, beautiful scenery & very peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Why would anyone ever want to stay at a hotel when you can stay at a house like this is available? The house had lots of space and great amenities. The scenery was very refreshing and the best part... no crowds! Steven and Katie were great trail guides too, pointing out several great hikes nearby. We were also impressed by the quality of the linens on the beds. Everything was just right and we enjoyed our stay.

The reviews don't lie...

  • 5 of 5

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!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY ALL YEAR AROUND

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time visiting Mr./Mrs. Jones' cabins. We visited last summer and had a wonderful time at the cabin and nearby stream as well. Because we had such a wonderful time, we decided to visit again during winter. Although it snowed and was very cold, we still had a lots of fun. It just feels different but, their place is good place to stay all year around!

They welcomed us warmly both times and were very friendly. I have been renting properties during summer and winter past few years with my friends but I never actually met the owner of the house. Personally, I think it is a great pleasure to meet the actual owner of the house.

As far as the property itself, it was very clean, comfortable and cozy. One thing that was very nice about this particular cabin was that you were able to see everyone unless they were at room sleeping. This cabin is not necessarily small, but it brings everyone together. I love that feeling so much. There is no one or two person doing other things at other place.

Everything in this cabin is up to date and is very attractive. I would definitely recommend it to everyone!
