HISTORIC OLD CABIN NEXT TO GEORGE WASHINGTON NAT'L FOREST SITS ABOVE TWO RIVERS

Harrisonburg Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom (Queen Size) 1 Full Bathroom with 1 Queen size sofa bed

Kids Stay Free!!!

Please read the entire description:

Dry River Cabin is rustic, cozy and comfortable real cabin that was built in the World War II era. It was originally built as a Summer getaway in the mountains. It is a very cute cabin, the second to last cabin on a dead end private road that is almost at the top of the mountain. The road can be rough at times (after heavy rains or snow), but we've had guests with every kind of car (including very nice luxury cars) make it up to the cabin. We drive up every day in a little Volvo with no ground clearance easily... snowy or rainy days may need higher clearance or 4 wheel drive. This is our cabin with the best views of the mountains when the leaves are gone.

We (Katie & Steven) live here on the mountain and are available almost always should you need anything. Please do not hesitate to let us know if there is anything at all we can do to make your stay more enjoyable while you are here. If there is ever a problem please let us know so we can do our best to make it right.

The cabin has one bedroom with a queen size bed and then there is a pull out queen size bed in the living room. The bedroom has an old stone fireplace and there is fireplace insert (with glass) so the fire can be seen. The cabin has a knotty pine in the interior, and a screened in porch with a great view of the mountain on the front when there are no leaves on the trees. In the Summer the cabin feels even that much more secluded due to all the foliage.

The cabin has an older full bath with claw foot tub, and a full kitchen with all the essentials: refrigerator, microwave, stove, oven and coffee maker and utensil and cookware. The kitchen and bathroom are not updated, but they fit with the theme of the cabin. There is central heat for the Winter and a window unit A/C in the living room that can be used in the Summer months if needed.

All linens and comforters are washed after every guest. The cabin has access to fishing and trails for hiking or mountain biking. It is about 10 miles from Harrisonburg and Bridgewater, so you're only minutes away from shopping and dinning as well.

Beloved pets are welcome but we do require a Pet Fee of $49 to $89. There is also a Property Damage Protection Fee of up to $49 - $89 (depending on length of stay)

Rates will vary during peak and holiday seasons.

Dry River Cabin is a great place to see the stars. 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 cabin and have personally seen upwards of 20 birds feeding on them at one time. The humming birds should be arriving in April. You don't want to miss them.

Check in time is 4:00 pm and checkout is 11 am

This is a real cabin in the mountains built long ago. Therefore it will not feel like new construction (since it sin't), but then again, that is what gives the cabin its charm because it is unique and older. The cabin is on the top of the mountain bordering the George Washington National Forest. The forest contains all sorts of wildlife and deer can even be seen at times walking through the yard. Because this is a real cabin, there may things you should expect to find in an older real cabin 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.

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 will do our best to accommodate any special requests.

About Katie & Steven Robert Jones

We moved to Virginia from Texas so I could finish my college degree. We have three daughters, one is 4, one is 18 months the other was born in June 2014. They all love to go for walks and play at the cabins. We are down to 8 dogs now, and we have 3 cats, 2 ponies, 7 goats and a lone rabbit. Our pets love to be in the car as well as explore all of the trails here in Rawley Springs.

Katie & Steven Robert Jones purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Katie & Steven Robert Jones chose Harrisonburg

We bought this cabin because it was the just up the road from our house, and we decided it would be a nice property to own. We love to spend the night up there when the cabin isn't rented out.

What makes this cabin unique

This is our most remote cabin, on the end of a private dead end road with direct access to the George Washington National Forest.

Great Stay Quaint Cabin Nice And Secluded

  • 5 of 5
The cabin listing description was spot on accurate and the photos in the listing looked exactly like the actual cabin. The cabin was super clean and everything was just as expected. The screen porch was really nice and the cabin is very secluded. The real stone fireplace in the bedroom really added to the rustic feel and was very inviting. The bed was extremely comfortable and I slept great. The old claw foot bathtub was really neat. The picnic table off the back porch was in a really nice spot to view the mountains. Katie and Steven were very friendly and helpful and answered all of my questions quickly and thoroughly. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone. It is a really nice place to get away, but with the added luxury of TV and high speed Wifi internet.

Amazing time

  • 5 of 5
Most friendly people i have ever stayed with, never had one complaint and they were willing to do anything for us at anytime and were very hospitable, whoever says that bed is uncomfortable is crazy because i slept like a baby. the cabin was nice and i loved the views. close to the national forest and Shenandoah n.p., also close to hiking trails. great getaway. plan on staying with them again in the future. loved it. would have put more than 5 stars if i could.

Wonderful Cabin Perfect for a Small Get Away

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is absolutely wonderful for any couple or small family. We cooked a great meal and ate looking over the mountains then had a small fire to end the night. Although we only stayed for one night, we wished we could have stayed longer and definitely plan to in the future. The owners are very helpful and are so pleasant. This was the best experience we've had with a mountain stay :)

Nice Cabin Great Views & Peaceful Location

Nice Cabin Great Views & Peaceful Location
  • 5 of 5
Loved our stay here at this cute secluded cabin. Views were great and we were able to instantly relax upon arrival. The owners were helpful from the time of booking until we arrived. Everything was clean and in order just like the pictures. Free fresh eggs in the fridge when we got there was a nice bonus too. Stars were so bright at night and you could even hear the river below all the way up on the mountain since it had just rained. There were even Hummingbirds at the feeder on the screen porch. The bed was great and kitchen had everything we needed. Would love to come back when it is cold enough to use the wood burning fireplace in the bedroom. Wifi enabled us to stream music and movies and there was full cable too. But we recommend some of the hiking trails nearby instead of watching TV. The High Knob Fire Tower trail was simply amazing with its 360 view of the valley below. Highly recommended.

Wonderful Stay at Amazing Cabin

  • 5 of 5
I hesitate to even write this review since I'd love to keep the cabin a little known secret so it will be available the next time I am looking to get away, but after reading some of the other reviews I left like I needed to share my great experiences at this cabin. The owners, Steven and Katie could not have been more hospitable. Upon arrival they made sure I knew that they were available should I need anything at all during our stay. They even let me know that they had had some guests who were unhappy recently, and to make sure and let them know if anything was wrong. They were sincere in letting me know this, so if someone else had a problem, they surely didn't give the Katie and Steven notice or I am confident it would have been taken care of immediately. I could not have been more pleased with everything at the cabin. This cabin was just what I expected and had hoped for. It was clean, cute and so relaxing! The bed was amazingly comfortable. Katie advised me too that she had been training a new cleaner that week, and had there been any issues I would have surely let her know, but there were none. While I didn't really need to use the internet, it was fast and nice that it was available had I wanted to use it more. The view from the fire pit was great and I loved the sitting on the swing looking out over the mountains. I would definitely stay again would highly recommend it to anyone else.

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5
Just spent the weekend at this cozy cabin! Could not have been more happy with our stay. Katie and Steven were wonderful! We watched the sunrise from the screen in porch.. beautiful! Spent hours hiking the mountain and down by the river (our dog was in heaven running through the woods and swimming). Slept soundly in the new bed- it's super comfy!

Overall, we could not have been more pleased with out weekend getaway. We were planning our next visit on our way home!
