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
very much. The cabin has a very homey feel to it. We loved the fires, comfy
couches, and beautiful decor. It was the perfect way to bring in the new year.
We will definitely pass the word along to our friends and family. Thanks again
for allowing us to have such an enjoyable new year!

Happy New Year!
Perfect place for a few days away! The cabin is cozy and comfortable, with room for being together and separate. The screen porch was so nice for coffee in the mornings, and suppers at night. Although we don't usually watch tv on get away weekends, it was great to have one to watch the Olympics! We cooked our meals there, and found everything we needed as far as kitchen tools, from pots and pans to serving dishes. Really appreciated the land line-there is no cell service. But, we were informed of that before we arrived, so we're able to give the cabin number out for emergency purposes.
Hope we can stay here again sometime.
Great vacation! Cabin was very clean and well stocked with lots of towels and bedding, even the pull out bed was comfortable! Fire pit was used daily and we really were happy to see the huge stack of readily available wood! Fishing was fun and the creek itself was awesome. One of our group actually got a free fly fishing lesson from another angler in the creek.
We had a wonderful time staying at Heavenly Haven! We were in the area for a family reunion, and picked the closest place to stay. We were blown away by what we saw when we arrived. The cabin is charming and delightful, the screened porch is a perfect place to relax in the evening, the kayak provided hours of entertainment, and the fishing was phenomenal. My husband, who has been coming to Craig's Creek since he was a child, said this is the best fishing hole he has ever seen there. The early morning bass fishing was great! We were surprised by any wifi at all, and the speed was great. The cabin was perfect, and more, for our short stay at Craig's Creek.
Wonderful cabin, beautifully decorated and well stocked. Everything you need for a quiet and peaceful get away. Will definitely be back!
Beautiful place to vacation. The cabin is so charming and just perfect for our vacation. Highly recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to experience nature and the Virginia mountains.
My family had an amazing time at Mike and Deanna's cabin. The two hosts planned for every detail, down to providing a map of the local area detailing restaurants and the grocery store. We spent the morning relaxing and then kayaking up and down the creek, literally next to the cabin. We hope to return one day!
Creekfront access for fishing, tubing, and canoeing. Canoe and tubes provided.
