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.

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

Loved the Cabin, Farm Animals & Country Setting
  • 5 of 5
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 .

COZY AND QUAINT

  • 5 of 5
Our weekend at Lower Rawley was absolutely incredible. The house was clean, cozy, and exactly what we needed for our retreat. When we arrived, the house was toasty warm thanks to Steven and Katie. They are the perfect hosts, even helping us unload our vehicle and making sure we had everything we needed. I have taken many groups to various rental properties, but none compare to what we experienced on this trip. You will not be disappointed.

GREAT WINTER RETREAT TO ACCESS SKI RESORTS!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed 4 nights at this cabin with two young children ages 5 & 6. It proved to be a wonderful experience and met all our needs. It is a charming little rustic cabin nestled in a valley at the base of the mountains. The setting is just beautiful with a large yard, private drive way, and plenty of cute little animals running around (inside a fenced in area.) The bird feeders attract an array of bird species and can be viewed from the kitchen window. There are other cabins nearby, but they are nicely spaced from each other and there are no other commercial businesses within the vicinity to spoil the serenity of the area. We chose this location to be accessible to the Massanutten Ski Resort without paying resort prices. It was a 35 minute easy drive from the resort that passes through Harrisonburg...making it nice for food/restaurant/errand stops as needed. The cabin's wood stove heated up the place very nicely. The kitchen was fully stocked with most every basic appliance you need to cook meals...to include a full size refrigerator. No dishwasher, but that wasn't a big deal for us. The farm fresh eggs were a nice added touch. Our kids slept in the loft area because it was fun...and it was very safe and accessible by stairs (not a ladder.) The owners are hard working and very attentive to their guests. They are currently working to upgrade the cabin's many amenities, and once this is done, it will be even better. In general, it is well worth the price!
