Up on the Laurel’s Dongola Cabin is a secluded, compact 384 square foot cabin designed to be a place for recreating, writing, relaxing and star-gazing. It sits on the south side of Iron Mountain in the Jefferson National Forest’s Mount Rogers National Recreation Area and takes in the scenic views of Whitetop Mountain and Mount Rogers. Its proximity to sites and towns of middle Appalachia, along with its fresh water, fresh air and relaxed pace make our cabin a lovely spot to visit. @uponthelaurel

The cabin was a welcome retreat in the middle of a cross-country trip. It's well-appointed and secluded and the view is beautiful. Shiera and Jacob were very helpful and communicative. Bonus points for being pet friendly! Hope we are able to return someday.

We enjoyed our stay very much! From the baby birds on the deck to the deer hopping through the field, we loved the tranquility that was around us. It was a a nice stop during our cross-country trip. Our dog loved running around the property and exploring the area too!

My husband, Jacob, and I like to walk the Appalachian Trail (and other trails) and mountain peaks around Dongola Cabin. When we aren't out walking or enjoying the outdoors, we enjoy the cabin as a peaceful writing and reading space. We are keen to share this space with others w…
