Upscale cabin in the Virginia Highlands

  • 5 of 5

This cabin exceeded all our expectations. Beautifully built and decorated, it sits in a picturesque spot above a clearing where deer and wild turkeys wander before green mountains rising above. A cathedral ceiling supported by massive beams fills the cabin with light. Every need is supplied in a modern spotless kitchen. Best in class.

Lovely views and nice cabin!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed for two weeks in this lovely cabin in the woods. Accessibility was somewhat difficult and wifi was marginal, but the view was wonderful and we saw deer, turkey and a skunk with a large white strip.

Peaceful, beautiful, private retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved the serenity and beauty of this location. We watched the wild life stroll through the yard and a thunderstorm roll across the mountains. We had a relaxing stay. The house is very well appointed, clean and well maintained. We chose this location for it's proximity to Grayson Highlands, New River State Park and Wytheville. We spent a day hiking at Grayson Highlands, climbed Mt. Rogers and saw the wild ponies and foals. We biked along the New River State Park, beautiful bike trail and hardly anyone was using it. Wytheville is 25 minutes away and has some great restaurants. There's a lovely covered porch in front and a deck with a grill in the back. We hope to return for more relaxing and exploring soon!

Heavenly Indeed!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in this beautiful, cozy and immaculately

maintained cabin. The views were spectacular. It is close to town where you can find everything you need without having to waste time looking for food, gas etc.. The owners were very helpful, giving us insights and ideas on how to best enjoy the area. We highly recommend this breath taking cabin in such a majestic place which was so difficult to leave.

A Beautiful Cabin in the Woods!

  • 5 of 5

Reach the Heavens Cabin is a very beautifully furnished and welcoming place to stay. The pictures provided are exactly what you will find when you arrive. The cabin is very clean and well-maintained. The newer type night lights, which I brought, would be helpful for anyone who does not like a Very Dark house at night. I had a question after arriving and called Maritza, which she promptly answered, and even the caretaker, Chad, called to answer my questions. I would highly recommend Reach the Heavens Cabin as a place to stay at. The last section of road to the cabin is gravel and steep at a couple of places. The best part is that the cabin is not far from the main highway, but far enough not to hear the traffic. My boyfriend and I were there for four nights as a birthday getaway for myself. We went out two of the days and visited the surrounding areas. The other days we stayed in and relaxed and enjoyed the gorgeous views out the windows of the cabin. We saw dear and turkeys each morning.

Peaceful and secluded

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I were looking for a cabin that was secluded and had a nice view of the mountains, and this one was perfect. Everything was clean and welcoming, and we loved listening to/watching the wildlife as we had our coffee on the porch every morning. It looks like some land is being cleared in an adjacent property, ostensibly for another cabin, which would be a shame because we loved that we couldn't see or hear any other people while we were there. We had a very peaceful and comfortable stay!
