Please read the entire description before booking:
Cliffside Cabin is a cute rustic cabin set in the mountains of Virginia.This is a real cabin built almost 75 years ago... so it will have a real cabin feel, which means it is not perfect. Again, this cabin is not perfect. It was originally built for use only as a summer cabin. We will be unavailable for the most of the month of June because we will be having a baby. Since I'm our cleaner, know that if you book a property during June it may not be clean.
No check-ins or checkouts on Thanksgiving or Christmas Day.
We bought this cabin in December 2012 and have made numerous improvements, but there are still many others that we plan to make. The front of the cabin is not as cute as we would like it to be yet (we don't particularly like the red painted wood). The screen porch needs to be completely redone with new screen. We will be making improvements as we are able (since it is booked during almost all the weekdays which doesn't allow us to make any improvements). We believe the inside of the cabin is cute already though and the setting is certainly beautiful with lots of hiking trails, biking, fishing and outdoor adventures to be had nearby.
Cliffside Cabin also has a nice size deck as well as a screen porch (which will be completely redone when funds permit). The screen is rather old and dirty currently and not in great condition). We also hope to update the deck at some point too. Please note that there is another cabin on each side of this cabin, though currently one of them is vacant.
There is a king size bed in the bedroom (studio style). The floor plan is open (loft/studio style), but there is a curtain that can be closed in the bedroom for privacy if multiple people are staying. There is also a cute loft with sleeping for older kids, teenagers or the fun loving adult that has three full size futon mattresses. There is a ladder going up into the loft which is probably most suitable for kids 5 years or old. This property can sleep 8 in the bed and mattresses if shared and ten if sleep on couch. The maximum occupancy is the number of people we will allow to stay not the amount that can sleep in beds.
The bathroom has a shower/tub combination as well as a sink and toilet. There is also a washer and dryer that guests are welcome to use for free if they need to. There are steps leading to the cabin in both the front and the back so this cabin would not be ideal for guests who have trouble with steps. Pets are welcome but we do require a pet fee...$49 plus tax
Cliffside Cabin is a great place to see the stars. On clear nights, you can see thousands of stars overhead. It is a beautiful sight. Also during the spring and summer months, you can see humming birds everywhere. We place feeders off the front porch of the house and have personally seen upwards of 20 birds at one time at our cabins here in Rawley Springs.
Check in time is 4:00 pm until 10 pm and checkout is 11 am. Early check-ins, before 4, or Late check-ins, after 10 pm, and late check-outs, after 11 am, require a $20 per hour fee. Please ask in advance about late check-ins.

This cabin has a floor model a/c in the living room. There is also a ceiling fan and central heat. In summer months the central heat can operated on the fan setting which allows the unit to be run and circulate air throughout the cabin. There is a wood stove in the living room and firewood can be purchased upon arrival (firewood must be purchased on site and not brought by guests). Because this is a real old cabin, there are things you should expect to find on occasion in an older real cabin such as spider webs (we clean them for every guest but they do reappear quickly), ladybugs, tiny critters and the occasional stink bug during certain times of the year. Sheets, toilet paper and towels are provided. Paper towels are not.
Failure to show up/check in or contact owner before midnight of day of arrival will result in cancellation. Host reserves the right to rebook property if guest does NOT contact owner.
If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to ask. We look forward to you staying.
