Gum Run Cabin (Please see all the details below)
We remodeled Gum Run Cabin the end of June 2013. We updated the entire kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances and new counter tops and new cabinets as well. This is a real cabin that was originally built as a Summer getaway that has been updated. Because of this the cabin has a lot of charm and touches that new construction does not have. If you are looking for a brand new cabin built for use just as a vacation rental, then this cabin may not be for you... this cabin has real character and offers a glimpse into the past. :) We think its history is part of what makes it special.
The bathroom has also been completely redone. There is now a double shower / tub combo. The cabin has a rough cut pine exterior and a western red cedar interior. There is also a nice screen wrap around porch out front. The cabin is a two bedroom cabin (both queen size beds) with a loft. The loft has very low ceilings (best for kids or teenagers). It has four single mattresses on the floor in it. As of right now, we built a custom cedar ladder for access to the loft. Kids under 5 should probably not climb the ladder into the loft.
Pets are always welcome but we do require a pet fee. There is a chicken coop at this property that we will need to tend to during the day. Please also note that the cabin is located in a forest in the mountains. There will be wildlife outside the cabin. Because this is a real cabin, there may things you should expect to find in a real cabin located in the forest such as spider webs (we clean them for every guest but they do reappear quickly), ladybugs and occasional stink bugs during certain times of the year.
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 area.
Checking is 4:00 pm and checkout is 11 am.
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.
This cabin has a window unit a/c in the living room. We have not had anyone complain about it being too hot and the window unit has met with everyone's approval thus far. Please be aware of this prior to booking the cabin. We want all of our guests to be more than satisfied.
The cabin is on a well... sometimes the well, depending on the water table will put out iron water that can appear orange at times. This is not harmful in any way, it just looks strange in the bathtub. We do have an expensive water treatment system set up to treat the water, but the water is sometimes too strong. There is also on occasional sulphur smell in the water as well. This too is not harmful, but it can strong depending on the water table. The drinking water is filtered even more thoroughly than the tap water too.

About Katie & 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.

Why Katie & Steven Robert Jones chose Harrisonburg
This cabin is in a great location. Whippoorwills are very common in the Spring to early Summer months as are Hummingbirds. The sound of Gum Run rushing by about 100 yards across the front yard is very peaceful.
What makes this cabin unique
There are 3 hiking trails within walking distance of the cabin (two of which can only be accessed from from our private land). There are numerous other trails within a very short drive of the cabin.
