Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)
Located in beautiful Highland County, Virginia nestled in a grove of sugar maples between Back Creek and Little Mountain. Wake up to valley views which are likely to include deer grazing in the meadow, hummingbirds at the feeder, or a Bald eagle or great blue heron fishing along the creek. This 28 acre property includes a sunny meadow with beautiful mountain views, picnic table by the creek and a mountain to climb!
The tastefully decorated cabin includes a master bedroom with queen bed, a second bedroom with two twin beds, one bathroom with laundry, a fully equipped kitchen, open living/dining area with cozy wood stove, a covered porch and a deck with hot tub and outdoor dining area with a gas grill. At the Cabin on Back Creek, you can enjoy the stars which light up the night sky, bird-watching, walking, or just relaxing with a book in the hammock, on the porch, or on the deck. In the early spring, we make maple syrup at the sugar house located adjacent to the Cabin. You are invited to watch (and smell!) the process of turning 40 gallons of sugar water into a gallon of pure maple syrup - or you can help us if you would like!
There are a variety of hunting and fishing opportunities nearby, and access to the George Washington National Forest is just two miles down the road.
The Cabin is located 16 miles from the quaint town of Monterey. Walking tours, galleries and shops, restaurants, beautiful mountain views, and friendly people make Highland County special all year round. Throughout the year, Monterey hosts numerous special events, the largest of which is the Highland County Maple Festival in March.
Located about 30 miles from Snowshoe Ski Resort, skiing, snowboard and tubing are available in season. Also nearby is the narrow-gauge railroad at Cass, West Virginia and the National Radio Observatory at Green Bank, WV.
Twenty miles south of the Cabin on Back Creek in neighboring Bath County are the towns of Warm Springs and Hot Springs, home to the historic Homestead resort and the Jefferson Pools mineral baths. These neighboring towns offer fine dining, golf, skiing/snowboarding, shopping, antiquing, chamber music at Garth Newel and a variety of art galleries.
The Cabin on Back Creek offers a peaceful retreat, surrounded by a variety of recreational opportunities.

Why Valerie & Pat Lowry chose Monterey
After purchasing 'the sugarbush' to make maple syrup from the trees located there, we decided to share this little piece of heaven with others

Wonderful cabin in an outstanding location. Incredibly well equipped with wonderful hosts.
The stars!!!! The creek!!!!
We want to come back in warmer weather!
Bring all your food, it's really out there! No cell reception but great Wi-Fi & TV.
So thankful we could bring our dog. She loved the warm stones by the woodstove!
Quite and pleasant
Excellent stay will do it again
Love the rustic look. The home is cozy the family loved it.
Beautiful gateaway location
The cabin was nice and cozy, clean, and in a beautiful setting. We planned on doing some cooking so we brought along various condiments and other kitchen supplies, but the cabin was very well equipped with kitchenware, spices, olive oil, etc.. The wood stove was a wonderful feature during the cold days, and there was plenty of firewood provided. The only detractor was that the beds were not particularly comfortable; they should have been given the price; hence the four stars. But we would certainly stay here again at the next opportunity.
Many of our guests say that it is the best night's sleep they have had in a long time!
I took my boyfriend, Daniel here for his Christmas gift. We stayed Jan 15-17, 2018 and LOVED every minute. From the 2x daily hot tub soaks, constant use of the wood stove, using the fire pit for Smores and star gazing this cabin was perfect beyond words. No detail is overlooked in making the cabin feel like my new home away from home. I had the best nights sleep of my life in the queen bed. We can't wait to come back and stay an extra night or two.
Private and Beautiful
Because of the privacy and Beautiful river running through the property this has became me and my husband favorite spot. This was our 19th wedding anniversary, and we have stated at many cabins none have compared to the Comfort and attention to detail this cabin provides. Thanks so much, we will be back!!!
Tour our sugar house and watch us turn sugar water into pure maple syrup (February & March). Attend the Highland County Maple Festival (the second & third weekends in March). Enjoy spring wildflowers and migrating birds. Summer is cool and mosquito-free! Outdoor games (badminton, croquet, and cornhole) available for use. The fall color (beginning in mid-September) is amazing. The Cabin is decorated for the Christmas season... truly a year-round retreat. If you need additional entertainment, Pat is always willing to tell stories of growing up in the Allegheny mountains!
