About Jim and Barbara Lashua

Jim and Bobbi L.

We purchased this cabin because of our love for the mountains and trout streams. We have four children and their spouses/friends. The cabin is just far enough away for the big cities to get lost in the mountain serenity.

Jim and Barbara Lashua purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Jim and Barbara Lashua chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

We have a rather large family so this cabin is large enough for family reunions, but small enough for a couple to spend a weekend in the mountains next to a stream. A separate guest cabin is also available for guests who might want individual privacy.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin can be rented through three different options: The large cabin ground floor (3 bedrooms); and add the upper floor for larger groups (4 additional bedrooms) for an additional fee; and add the small guest cabin for an additional fee for 2 to 4 persons. It has its own hot tub and kitchenette.

GirlFriend's Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had total of 10 ladies on our trip. We enjoyed the Cabin so much. It is so peaceful there! Not far from Lansing, we ate at the Country Restaurant with home cook breakfasts and great waitress tell Salina Hello from us :)... Then we went to West Jefferson, wonderful little town. Spent the weekend the weekend at the cabin with fellowship and prayer. We had plenty of room for all 10 ladies. Enjoyed the hot tub! Enjoyed the creek behind the cabin!! Don't forget your paper products (paper towels, TP, etc) :) We did go to the little Lansing Grocery store and it had everything we needed. Thank you so much for the wonderful stay. We hope to be back next year!!!! Thank you!!!!

Beautiful Scene

  • 4 of 5

It's was very peaceful. Only negative was that we could of used a little more time to finish all the cleaning without being rushed. And of course, with 20 people taking showers and doing dishes, the hot water ran out quick.

Owner's Response: Stephanie, Thanks for your review and thanks for cleaning up so nicely. We appreciate the responsiveness. Hot water can be a problem with that large a group. We only have a 50 gallon water heater and it can run out of hot water when everyone uses it at the same time. We enjoyed your company and hope you come back. Best regards, Jim and Bobbi

Perfect for large groups like a family reunion. It was clean and the kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, etc. It could use a little updating but was altogether a great place. Only a 10 minute drive to Grayson Highlands State Park.

Very comfortable & well equipped home.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this home. We especially enjoyed the back porch area which looked right out to the creek. It was a very peaceful, pretty setting. The kitchen was well stocked. We enjoyed the fire pit & corn hole boards as well. This home made our trip very enjoyable.
