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.
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. 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. The cabin has 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.
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, but then again, that is what gives the cabin its beauty because it is unique. 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.
We moved to Virginia from Texas so I could finish my college degree. We have two daughters, one who is 4 and the other 1. We have another baby on the way. They both love to go for walks and play at the cabins. We are down to 8 dogs now, and we have 2 cats, 2 ponies, 7 goats and a lone rabbit. When we travel everyone gets to go along (pets included). Our pets love to be in the car as well as explore all of the trails here in Rawley Springs.
We bought this cabin because it was right next to 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.
This is our most remote cabin, on the end of a private dead end road with direct access to the national forest.
