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

Great getaway with beautiful views and the peace of the mountains! The drive into town for shopping & restaurants is part of the fun! People in the area were very friendly & welcoming! We would definitely do this again!

This place is perfect for a serene weekend retreat. We were looking for somewhere to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and this was the place for that! We loved the beautiful mountain views and the crystal clear view of the skies. We saw a doe and her fa…

The Dongola Cabin was one of our favorite places on our road trip. The place was tucked away in a very quiet remote area and beautiful views of the mountains. We only stayed for one night, but wished we would have booked for longer. Hope to stay here again!
