HIKERS' DREAM. The property abuts the Shenandoah National Park and is walking distance to the popular Old Rag Mountain and White Oak & Cedar Run trails.

PEACEFUL RETREAT: The cabins are set on 5 acres fronting the Robinson River, with a backyard meadow, 2 ponds and a screen house where you can doze peacefully to the sounds of the burbling river and frogs. Unplug and truly relax.

MOUNTAIN CABIN CHARM: Modern amenities in a rustic setting of warm natural wood and extensive fieldstone.

This was such an amazing place and experience. We had GPS up to the driveway, but cell service definitely dropped so make sure you print/screenshot the directions. When we arrived we were struck by how serene the area was. Melinda gave us a very thorough tour of the cabin and its…

This is a really cool cabin located half a mile in each direction from the trail heads of the best two holes in this area (Old Rag and White Oak Canyon). The cabin is spacious and full of character and the owners are supportive without being intrusive.
