Welcome to our cozy mountaintop cabin in the woods with great views. Easy access. One hour from Harrisonburg, VA and 10 minutes from Franklin, WV.

The space
Unplug and come enjoy the peace, beauty, and recreational opportunities Pendleton County, West Virginia's mountain playground, has to offer.
Our cozy cabin blends into the mountain setting and was built between 2010 and 2014, using as many local and reclaimed materials as possible. It has one bedroom plus a loft. There is a ladder to the loft space which has a single bed and a small sitting area. The bathroom has a clawfoot tub/shower. Kitchen is fully set up for cooking with full size stove, refrigerator, a pantry, and plenty of storage space. We do not have wifi or cable. (Wifi is available at Subway in Franklin.) We do have plenty of books and games and a collection of videos. There is a window air conditioner in the main living area and in the bedroom. Cell service is spotty. AT&T users can almost always get a signal up on the ridge behind the cabin, and also can get service in Franklin, and often in the cabin. Verizon users will not get reception in Franklin area or in the cabin. We do have a landline and have provided a calling card for long distance calls in case of an emergency. We will provide the phone number if you wish to leave it with someone at home during your visit.
This space is about 550 sq. ft. excluding the loft.
There is a wood stove in the cabin that is available for use from October through April and firewood is provided. We also have convenient electric baseboard heat.

Please show correct number of guests.

If you are interested in staying for a week please contact me. It is quite possible we can work that out even though it appears the cabin is unavailable during the week.

Absolutely no pets.

Where you’ll be

Pendleton County, West Virginia, United States

This is a beautiful area with well-kept farms, beautiful forests, and mountain streams and springs. Franklin is a charming small town and it is like stepping back in time. There is a grocery store, a couple of small restaurants, and two hardware stores. The Drive-In theater is open on weekends during the warmer months. Franklin has a community pool that has very reasonable rates. Hiking, biking, fishing opportunities abound locally. Dolly Sods, Spruce Knob, Seneca Rocks are about an hour away. Monterey, Virginia is 30 minutes away and is a scenic little town. Harrisonburg, VA is an hour away. Franklin, Monterey, and Harrisonburg have nice farmers markets.

Pendleton County, WV has a website that may provide more information about local attractions.
