You can't buy serenity--but you can rent it!

NOW BOOKING SUMMER VACATIONS!

PLEASE NOTE: IN SUMMER, WE RENT BY FULL WEEK ONLY, FROM SATURDAY TO SATURDAY.

AND IT'S NOT TOO LATE FOR A ROMANTIC SPRING WEEKEND GETAWAY.

Iona Cabin is located on Big Creek, just half a mile from the Greenbrier River and some of the best small-mouth bass fishing in the East, and three miles from the confluence of the Greenbrier with the New River. Bluestone Lake, the New River Gorge National River, and several state parks and wildlife management areas make this one of West Virginia's most scenic locations.

With Iona Cabin rental, you get exclusive use of the entire 11 acre, secluded property, accessed by a private, graveled driveway from Big Creek Road. It is entirely wooded, and the beautiful, cascading Big Creek tumbles right through it, with your private walking trail alongside the stream. Just below the cabin itself, you have your own natural ''swimming hole.''

New! We added air conditioning for the 2012 summer season. We have a new, tile shower, and an automated well water filtration system.

Worry Free Zone!: Iona Cabin is a two-bedroom log cabin hideaway, with two adjoining decks. It has a great room with cathedral ceiling, fully-equipped kitchen, master bedroom, and shower-bath on the first floor. Upstairs, the loft contains a second bedroom and a half-bath. There is an outdoor shower below the deck.

Iona Cabin is a quiet, get-away retreat. You’ll find your anxiety level plummeting as you enter the long, private driveway, and you'll want to spend days on end just luxuriating in the peace and serenity of this beautiful and tranquil, natural setting of almost eleven acres, clad in hardwood, hemlock, and native rhododendron. If inner harmony is your goal, Iona Cabin is your destination.

Wild IS Wonderful in West Virginia!: Iona Cabin is also a great home base for an active, outdoor vacation. Whether you like fishing or hunting; skiing on water or snow; river 'tubing,' white-water rafting, kayaking, or canoeing; hiking or mountain biking; golfing; horse-back riding; or sight-seeing, Iona Cabin is right in the center of a wealth of recreational opportunities--that is, if you can tear yourself away from your own private swimming hole on the babbling Big Creek.

Nearby Hinton is an authentic West Virginia, Appalachian town, quaint and charming, filled with friendly and hospitable people. As yet unspoiled by big city ways and influences, Hinton is blessed with natural beauty, access to rivers, lakes, and mountains, proximity to state and national parks and forests, and easy accessibility from urban centers in Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina, making it an ideal base for get-away excursions whether for quiet retreat or active, outdoor fun.

Rustic Does Not Have To Mean Primitive! Enjoy blessed quiet and tranquility, yet stay connected to home and work through smart phone and laptop, via wireless internet. Iona is a great setting for completing a project, or for having quality time with someone you love.

The satellite WiFi means you never have to feel cut-off, even when you are enjoying the splendid isolation of the West Virginia woodlands. Your smart phone will bring in your email, also.

Donald is Canon for Mission and Transitions in the Episcopal Diocese of WV. Linda is Chair of Humanities at Mountwest Community and Technical College. We have two adult sons.

Donald Vinson purchased this cabin in 2006

This was a beautiful property, in an area yet undiscovered by east-coast tourism. We have space, privacy, quiet, and great natural beauty only 3 hours from our home.

The acreage, the natural landscape, the creek to play in, and the lack of close neighbors make for a very peaceful setting.

This is such a beautiful and relaxing place to spend time. The view of the creek is just great,you can feel the tension of city life roll away watching the water. The creek is great if you like to feet dip as I do. There is nothing like sitting by the water, dipping feet and just relaxing. We loved it there, can't wait to go back. The cabin is comfortable and cozy and we found ourselves feeling at home from the first day. Thanks for sharing your home with us. Almost forgot, our german shepherd and chihuahua loved it there as much as we did. They can't wait to go back.

June 7-14, 08Enjoyed the week here—got to see the local sights00Sandstone Falls00R. R. Musum—Cass Railroad—Hawks Nest Park—Pipestem—New River Bridge. Played in the creek several of the noons also. Since this was vacation, I don’t cook, but there were enough choices in our day trips to get a variety. We enjoyed Kirk’s. The staff was so friendly. We live in the country , so we sove staying away from bit cities. This fit our choice to enjoy and be close enough to travel or stay in. Must say our roads at home are a little larger! Cass Railroad was a great day trip—About 3 hrs. drive—an all day event with 4 hr. train rides. Great if you love steam trains!I could have done without our 5:30 a.m. woodpecker knocking—but finally he left.Thanks for letting us enjoy your piece of heaven.

July 20—27, 08We’re here from the suburbs of Chicago and thank you so much for your hospitality! The cabin was great and we enjoyed the swimmin’ hole.We have been many places, including Pipestem, Lewisburg, biking the Greebrier trail, rafting on the New River! Yesterday at Sandstone Falls, we almost lost our 20 year old son over the falls, but rescuers were able to get to him and get him out of the spot he was stuck in What a scare! We would recommend Brandon’s for dinner, and of course, the grill here worked great. Little scare this morning when a bat bit me. Be careful when you bring clothes in from drying on the deck! Had a great week anyway!

Very beautiful weekend to be at Iona cabin—changing colors, crisp cool air, and lots of peace and quiet….Thank you for offering up your cabin as part of the Dress for Success fundraiser—otherwise, we would never have known about it. The timing of our trip was wonderful—amid all the cacophony from Wall Street disaster and character assassination of politics, we were able to sit by the creek and sit in the comfy chairs and read! This was especially nice as, in two months, we’ll welcome our first child into the world!Kit and Mary BethP. S. The backway drive to Lewisburg was wonderful! (Hinton—Alderson—Ronceverte—Lewisburg)

July 5—12, 08We gathered from Minneapolis, MN, Washington, D. C., and Austin, TX to the Iona Cabin for a family gathering. Our first evening was spent on the deck listening to the creek, watching a thousand stars—some falling, and enjoying our favorite libations—“Orgasmos.”We are amaze with the fine walks at the Tamarack, and handwork. The Coal Mine exhibit at Beckelyu. We ventured next to Gettysburg to experience and be sadden by our heritage. On the way back to Iona Cabin, we visited Monticello and thee Michie Tavern. Our next stop was to the Greenbrier, where we re-loved our days in the ‘50s at the Bunker Tour and learned of the game of Kings, falcons and hawks. We spent a day at the Pipestem, and then our last day relaxing at home. Good friends and family, wonderful sites, food and campfire at the firepit, and always the wonderful creek.We were fortunate to see deer, chipmunk, wild turkey, many birds, and wonderful wildflowers/ Our trip was short, but our memories are long.God bless all who venture here.Armin and Cindy, Billy and Sarah, Daniel and Norma

June 21—28, 08The Lord clearly directed us to this cabin, a quiet respite for the soul, time to reflect and enjoy His amazing creation. Thank you for all the thoughtful amenities, bird and animal books, binoculars, games, puzzles (we did the New River one!) phone card, drinking water, etc., etc.,!! We are so glad we came and will look back on this time with sweet memories, hiking, biking, fly fishing, swimming, reading and so much more. May the Lord bless all those who come here and may He bless you as you also I hope enjoy your own cabin and the loveliness of its surroundings.

Oct 21, 08God sure knows how to paint a picture! Doug and I got married on the beach in Destin, FL. The beach is a regular 10-day get-away every year for the family. This year was an exception. Unfortunately, my husband’s parents weren’t able to make it to our wedding last year. Mt. Hope, WV is a far way for them to drive with their health issues. This year we decided to bring “my” parents to meet “his” parents. Yes, for the first time. I couldn’t have painted a more beautiful and loving visit. A loving family and a beautiful place. Iona Cabin was a perfect setting. How much closer to God could we be? Almost as if we were in a tree house here…We all enjoyed the parks in the surrounding areas—Hawk’s Nest was breath-taking; Sandstone was serene and peaceful. Thank you for letting us include Iona Cabin as a storyline in our lives; we loved it here. After my husband’s 1 year deployment, we’ll be back to see his parents….

Oct. 17-22, 08We enjoyed our visit to Iona Cabin. I think we came at the perfect time! The leaves were beautiful, and “Train Days” at Hinton was very enjoyable. My husband and I made new friends (our son-in-law’s parents from Mt. Hope.) I agree with the previous guest, it was nice to get away from the political and financial situation of our U. S. A. just for a few days. Thank you for sharing your cabin sitting in the perfect place in God’s Beautiful West Virginia!

Oct 08We’ve had a fantastic time here at Iona Cabin out in the woods of W. VA. We loved the quiet, the creek, the trees, the birdsong, and the train whistle!Hiniton is such a historic and interesting area—we were amazed to learn that our fellow Yorkshiremen (Yorkshire being our home county in the N. E. of England, known for coal mining and North Sea fishing) were amongst the first European settlers to this area.Bluestone Lake and Dam, New River and the Gorge, Sandstone Falls, and Pipestem and Bluestone national Parks, we did them all and enjoyed some great, if testing, hikes….
