Claytor Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description
1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, built for 2 adults, but can sleep 3.
If you are looking for a place to relax while surrounded with the sights and sounds of nature, stay in Fireflies. The cabin is located along the New River waterfront across from the 57-mile New River Trail State Park. The cabin rests 200 feet from the water not far from a bend in the river. You can watch the sun come up over the mountain and the mist rise above the river while sitting on one of Fireflies’ two porches.The New River is 350 million years old and retains the pristine beauty of an unspoiled waterway. Enjoy canoeing, tubing, kayaking, hiking, biking, horseback riding, or fishing. If you would like dining and entertainment options, Fireflies sits midway between Wytheville and Christainsburg with both cities just 35 minutes away. Located within 45 minutes of 3 wineries.
Why the Owner Chose Barren Springs: : We are originally from New Jersey. While vacationing in the New River Valley in 2004 we fell in love with the area. We purchased property on the river in 2005. As this was our second home we rented it as a vacation rental for 3 years before our retirement. In 2009 we moved into our home and began to build a small cabin on the property close to the river. The cabin, which we call Fireflies, is now ready to be enjoyed by vacationers looking for a place to relax.
The Unique Benefits of this Cabin: : Year Purchased: 2010 - The cabin sits just above the riverbank and has large windows and two porches that have been designed to enable you to enjoy the abundance of nature. It is common place to see the deer in the early morning and again in the evening. Water birds of many varieties fly up and down the river each day and it is not unusual to see a bald eagle.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you so much for the gorgeous accommodations! We had a lovely stay here during our daughter's graduation and only regret that we never found this little piece of heaven before! The word "cabin" is truly unfair to your beautiful little home! We will definitely be back! PS. the pumpkin muffins were awesome!
