We were a party of 2 families (4 adults and 4 kids) and the cabin truly was everything we wanted and more. Mitch and Bobby made sure that we had everything we needed - they had a jar of everything we needed for s’mores and the kids really loved that. A basket of sunblock, and insect repellant was right at the door. Plenty of pots and pans in the kitchen. But the best part was the location —the big creek is right by the house, with paths and concrete steps to get to it and a little creek that joins it on the side - the kids and dogs were happy exploring. Plenty of firewood made hanging out by the fire pit easy and the hosts had the pit nicely set up for us -all ready for our first fire. My 8yo loved the little basket of books in our bedroom. WiFi is not strong but we all realized that might have been a blessing in disguise ;) will be back!
Thank you so much for the detailed review of your stay at Cottage on Craig. We love it and are so glad you did too. Please come again soon.
Great place for true outside relaxation. So nice to step away from busy lives!
Property was clean, cozy and comfortable. So appreciate all the games, provisions and charm . We have been before, and will certainly return. If you you love the idea of a secluded, and welcoming corner of the earth, this is the place. We spent the majority of our time outside in the chairs, walking and roaming around by the river. Hopefully when it is a little warmer, we plan to return, and kayak this beautiful creek. Thank you to the Bowmans!!
Great place, Great host, completely satisfied...
We booked this place for our visit to Mcafee Knob. It was around 45 minutes travel from the cabin. We enjoyed the mcafee knob hiking. However by the end of trip, we are cherishing the time we spent in the cabin more than hiking🤷🏻♂️😊...
Those two days, we felt like we were the only people in the world...😊
Will surely visit again., no doubt in that.
We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Cottage on Craig. We enjoyed meeting you so much and will enjoy your return.
Loved having peace and quiet and staying in a comfy cabin with no worries or schedules. Waking up to a view like that was beautiful and serene. I look forward to the possibility of staying again in the future.
Thank you so much for coming to Cottage on Craig. We hope you come again very soon. You left everything in perfect order.
Could not have picked a better place to stay. Cabin was clean and had everything you could possibly need. The view overlooking the creek from the sleeping porch was amazing. Great location too. Many hiking and outdoors adventures right in the area and close to attractions in Natural Bridge and Lexington. Canoes and kayaks are provided. You can easily spend a day just relaxing at the cabin. Cannot wait to return in the future.
