Please read the whole description:

Lower Rawley Cabin is a real cabin built many years ago as a Summer cabin getaway in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Located in historic Rawley Springs, Lower Rawley Cabin offers access to hiking, biking, fishing and walking trails all right out your front door. There are no steps leading up to this cabin (if you use the backdoor).

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).

Lower Rawley Cabin has two bedrooms and one bathroom (bathroom is older, not updated, but we plan to update the bathroom soon. Both bedrooms have queen size beds. The second bedroom is very small though, but it does have a queen size bed. The loft (with very low ceilings) has one queen, one full and two twin size mattresses on the floor. The loft has a very low ceiling that is best suited for kids or young adults (or adventurous younger adults).

The wood stove in the living room puts out enough heat to heat the the entire house no matter how cold it may get outside. There is a floor model A/C unit in the living room which helps keep the cabin cool on warmer days, but it is usually cooler here in the mountain anyway most days in the Summer.

The cabin is on a private dead end road with 11 other cabins on it, but the area is almost always quiet and peaceful year round. Only half of the cabins on the road ever really get used though.

Pets are welcome but we do require a pet fee when pets stay at the cabin. 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 in the past.

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

The house can fit 12 people, but please note that the loft does have low ceilings. On side note, there are no screens on the windows. We are looking to replace all the windows at some point though.

We do have chickens, two ponies (a mama and her baby) and 7 baby goats (5 of which are fainting goats) all at this cabin now. There are also a few dogs inside the fence to protect the animals from foxes. They are fenced, so there is no worry about them escaping, but kids (and most adults) have love getting to pet and feed the animals (carrots are a big favorite). We also give all of our guests free fresh eggs from our very own chickens. :)

We just had a new well drilled at Lower Rawley Cabin in February. The water from the old well had iron and sulphur in it, which stained some of the fixtures including the bathtub, sink and toilet. The new also has iron in it and we had a treatment system for the new well which seems to be working well. The water is still usable, but could possibly have an iron taste, sulphur smell and orange tint to it at times (we haven't noticed this since the treatment system went it though). We just wanted our guests to be aware of this.

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.

We moved to Virginia so I (Steven) could finish my college degree, but our vacation rental business got in the way... My wife had to quit teaching Junior High in a neighboring county last year to help me run the business. We have two daughters and another baby due in July. We also have 8 rescue dogs and 2 rescue cats. We love the Rawley Springs and all of its beauty.

Katie & Steven Robert Jones purchased this cabin in 2012

This property borders our other properties... and this one is across the road from the river, so it fits in perfectly with our vacation rental cabins. Plus it was the perfect spot to add some farm animals so our guests can a real taste of the country.

Walking Trails and close proximity to the rivers and the George Washington National Forest.

cozy, quiet place, very clean!

This is a small but very cozy cabin, furnished with everything you need to have a comfortable stay. There were 7 of us, 2 adults and 5 kids, and there was plenty of room for everyone and their stuff. my kids loved sleeping in the loft!

True to description!

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time staying at the Lower Rawley Cabin. Rawley Springs is so unique and beautiful. There is plenty to explore! Very quiet road but there are neighbors around. The pictures are true to what the cabin looks like. The animals are so friendly and adorable. I really enjoyed standing at the fence and watching them. Harrisonburg has great restaurants and is a short drive from cabin. My only critique is that the owner took about 30-40 minutes to let us in to the cabin which felt like forever after our 4 hr 30 min drive. The cabin was very clean and had everything needed. It did have a musty smell but not too strong. This cabin was perfect for me and very relaxing.

Great location, great people and a great time!

  • 5 of 5
The property list description was exactly as stated. There was plenty of room for our family. The sleeping area upstairs was perfect. All of my kids liked staying in the loft and are already planning on another stay. The kitchen had everything we needed to eat in and we did. The layout of the house was what we were looking for and allowed us to check in quickly and get into our vacation, which was with the animals, hiking and stream and national park. The property was clean and very well maintained. Upon our arrival we were met by the owners (Steve and Katie) and they went through everything quickly, but thoroughly. Steve and Katie were always available but never in the way. Our entire family would recommend this cabin and are currently planning on staying here again. We toured the local area venturing further into George Washington National Park. We also toured the local town of Harrisonburg. There are many smaller local attractions there. We really enjoyed Kline's Dairy Bar - the ice cream was very good.

Loved the Cabin, Farm Animals & Country Setting

I really enjoyed having the goats and ponies right outside of the cabin. I did not realize that goats were so friendly. The cabin was really clean and the living room was very spacious. I really liked the high ceilings in the living room too. The cabin has a nice modern kitchen with everything I could have needed to cook. The bed was comfortable and I had no trouble sleeping. The cabin sits on a cute little private road and everything was nice and scenic. It was very quiet. I really enjoyed my stay and you can tell Steven & Katie really care about their guests having a great stay.

Great cabin and great animals!

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at this cabin! The interior is cozy but modern. The kitchen was great and well stocked with supplies. Best of all were the animals next door! We had so much fun feeding the goats, watching the chickens, and petting the ponies. One thing to know is that the loft with 4 mattresses is quite small and probably only suited for small kids.

Five men used the cabin for a weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5
The owners, Steve and Katie, were extremely gracious hosts. The cabin was clean ad prepared for us and was already warm. We used the wood that they provided to keep our cabin warm.
The weather allowed us to enjoy walks, and the petting farm
animals were great. One of the men oped to use some of the cabins to have retreats for his employees' families. We talked to another couple who came all the way from DC .
