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!
Jen & Geoff
Happy New Year!
House is very cozy and clean. Great location right on Craig Creek. If you want to get away from it all this is the perfect spot.
The cabin was perfect for my family. We had a great time exploring the surrounding areas and just relaxing at the property. The cabin is well stocked with everything you might need.
If the porch were larger we might all have slept out there. The sound of the shoals all day is wonderful. Everything we needed was here, although we couldn't find the canoe. We are planning for a wedding in the area in 18mos, and this cabin will be at the top of our recommendations to our guests.
Adorable cabin. You can tell the owners love it. Very welcoming and comfortable. Well maintained, kitchen well equipped, attention to detail in the decorations. We wanted to use the outdoor firepit but was a windy weekend so used indoor fire place our last night. Perfect. Beautiful view of the water. There were only two of us but loft area was very cute and big enough for kids to play and watch TV up there. Kids would love it . We don't fish but imagine it would be great place to take it up. Highly recommend staying here.
My wife and I were looking for a weekend in the woods and Heavenly Haven Cabin fit the bill. It had everything we needed. Our dog enjoyed swimming in the creek, which was much more impressive than we expected.
The cabin is thoughtfully appointed by the owners to make visitors' stays enjoyable. Nearby access to MANY trails and forest roads in the Jefferson National Forest for hiking. Given the time of year of our visit, it was too cold to enjoy the "river", screened in porch and outdoor fire pit but imagine these are delightful on warmer days. Convenient access to all but limited restaurant offerings is the primary "downside" to this location. Best advice is to come prepared to "dine in", for most if not all meals. As advertised, there is only one small bathroom, which could present coordination challenges for a group but not a problem for just my husband and me. We thoroughly enjoyed our hike in the Jefferson National Forest and walk in the nearby Fenwick Mines (?) Recreational area. Paint Bank was somewhat of a disappointment given the mountainous ride to get there. Other than the Swinging Bridge Restaurant and the Depot Lodge, not much to see. There are, however, many forest roads along the route for those who wish to explore on foot.
Creekfront access for fishing, tubing, and canoeing. Canoe and tubes provided.
