This was a wonderful vacation rental!
It is right off VA 58, but far enough up the mountain to be private - we saw no one, except the owner, and a bunch of deer, during our five-day stay. This cabin is on many acres of private property with hiking trails, and very well-maintained roads/driveways.
Ample A/C or heat if you need.
This little cabin was VERY clean and well-maintained, with a great layout. The view at sunset from the back yard was amazing.
The bed was firm and comfortable, with a gorgeous quilt and ample blankets. Water pressure in the shower was a joy, especially at 4000'. There's a built-in heater in the bathroom that I appreciated on chilly mornings.
There are tons of seating/dining options on the deck, the screened porch, or down by the fire pit. Kitchen had everything we needed, and there's a gas grill on the deck.
For those interested in the VA Creeper Trail: The property is about halfway between Whitetop and Green Cove stations.
We spent most of our days hiking and biking, Mt Rogers and Grayson Highlands.
Do know that there is no cell phone service here. There may be Internet if you go down by the lower cabin (access code for that was in our cabin, but we didn't check it out.)
Happily, they allow dogs with no pet fee or cleaning fee = AMAZING.
We use VRBO rentals for our vacations often. This one was the best value, and most comfortable stay I have ever had. Many thanks to the owners!
My first review went into an internet black hole, so I'm trying again... this cozy little cabin was exactly what we needed for a few days of R&R. It was the perfect size for the two of us and our four-legged kids. Nice kitchen for making meals, washer/dryer, TV. And it was spotless -- the cleanest rental we've stayed in. The owners are attentive and you can tell that they care about providing a great place for travelers. The property is 25 minutes from Damascus, which was perfect for us because we wanted to unplug and be away from town. We loved that it was so close to the Whitetop Station on the Virginia Creeper Trail. Super easy to park, ride down the trail, and get a shuttle back (we brought our own bikes). It's also very close to Whitetop Mountain, Jefferson Nat'l Forest and Mount Rogers recreation area, not to mention the AT. We enjoyed the trails on the property, watching the sunsets from the cabin, reading on the screened porch, terrific deck with a fire pit and grill, and there's even an area near the cabin for building a small fire and relaxing in Adirondack chairs. Nothing but nature in this beautiful spot. Very peaceful! We can't wait to return.
We had an awesome time -- the location and amenities were just what we needed for some R&R. We were here in summer, which was fabulous with temps in the 70s. The cabin has A/C, but being able to open windows to the fresh air and sounds of nature was what we preferred. The cabin itself was the perfect size for the two of us and our four-legged children, and it's a well maintained place with attentive and accessible owners. The cabin is situated in a beautiful spot, with trails on the property and pretty sunset views from the screened porch and the deck, which has a metal firepit and grill (there is also a terrific place for building a small fire on the ground outside the cabin, and lots of wood). This was the cleanest rental we've stayed in. It was spotless. The kitchen was also well-equipped, which is not always the case with rentals. As for location, the town of Damascus is about 25 minutes away, which was perfect for us because we wanted to be out of town. We loved that even though we were set back on several acres surrounded by woods (the property is more than 100 acres), the start of the Virginia Creeper trail was a very, very short drive -- it was so convenient to park at Whitetop Station and get a shuttle back from Damascus (we brought our own bikes, but you can easily rent them in the area). We liked that Whitetop Mountain is very close by as well, not to mention the AT, Jefferson National Forest and the Mount Rogers recreation area. Can't wait to return and recommend to anyone looking for a quiet getaway in the mountains of Virginia.
Everything was as promised, and more. Hiking trails throughout the wooded property, firewood stacked near the cabin. Cabin is clean and in great condition. Really enjoyed hiking on the Creeper Trail with our dogs, and will bike it next time. Didn't have time to check out all the recreational areas like Mt. Rogers, but we'll be back!
