About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Welcome to Heavenly Haven

A family friend introduced us to Craig Creek in the spring of 2007. We were instantly enamored by the clean water and beautiful mountain views. The creek is perfect for tubing, canoing, and fishing. The surrounding Jefferson National forest offers some of the best hiking and hunting in the area.

A week’s vacation at Craig Creek in the summer of 2007 cemented our love for the area and we began to look for a place to call our own. As we began our search we learned that property on the creek is rarely sold, and is often passed from one generation to the next. We had almost abandoned the idea when we happened upon the find of a lifetime……our Heavenly Haven.

In 1997 a local attorney purchased the 1.3 acre creek-front lot near Oriskany, Virginia with the intent to build a fishing and hunting “getaway”. In 2000, he commissioned Mennonite carpenters to construct the unique cedar cabin and adjacent 10' x 20' barn from Southern Living’s “Deer Run” design.

The beautifully detailed interior features tongue-and-groove knotty wood pine. Craftsmanship, attention to detail, and quality materials; all trademarks of the Mennonite builder; are abundant throughout.

The dining area features seating for 6 at a wonderful table hand crafted on the property. 2 large windows provide scenery while you dine. A deer antler chandelier, with dimmer, sets the mood for family meals or romantic dinners.

The master bedroom features an inviting king size oak bed with comfortable memory foam mattress. The bed is adorned with high quality linens, perfectly suited to the country setting. Two large windows provide plenty of natural sunlight and scenic views of the surrounding forestry. The ceiling fan, candles, and overhead dimmer allow you to set temperature and lighting perfectly for your comfort and mood. A full bath, with enclosed shower and tub is conveniently located next to the master bedroom.

The centerpiece of the great room is a breathtaking stone fireplace which extends from the floor to the 20 ft cathedral ceiling. A lush queen size sleeper sofa, antique cedar chest, and oversize chairs make this room an inviting place to enjoy conversation and a book or DVD from our library by the fire. The ceiling fan and overhead lighting allow you to create the perfect atmosphere for relaxation.

The fully equipped kitchen contains everything you’ll need to cook a gourmet meal, or simply heat up a pizza. Electric stove and oven, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, pots and pans, crock-pot, dishes, utensils, and spices are provided. A large window over the kitchen sink provides views of the creek while you cook or socialize.

At the top of the solid pine staircase is the sleeping loft. In the loft you’ll find two comfy double size log beds and a set bunk beds. The bottom bunk has a full size mattress, and can sleep 2. The top bunk has a double mattress and sports views of the creek through the adjacent window. A collection of toys, games, children’s videos, and a VCR are available for your use. 2 large windows provide lots of sunlight and gorgeous views.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay at your cabin. We enjoyed ourselves

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful! Very clean fully furnished. The gas grill made our steaks taste delicious.

The creek was peaceful and relaxing. We caught lots of fish and made wonderful memories.

Great Spot on the Creek!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our weekend getaway. Fun fishing, chilling and listening to the creek. The cabin is nicely outfitted, down to kitchen knives that work, a good selection of basic spices, and equipment (pots, pans, gadgets). Definitely ask for best spot to put in for tubing--slow/low creek and no cell phone service, and lack of a clear plan can be a recipe for getting stranded. But the local police/sheriff were terrific!
