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.

We absolutely loved the rustic cabin and beautiful yard. Morning coffee outside next to the pond, watching the frogs jump was an incredible way to start the day. And being able to take a short walk to the trailheads for White Oak Canyon and Old Rag instead of fighting for parking…

Great hiking nearby, deer, bear, fish and other interesting wildlife abound. Enjoyable little slice of Virginia history in a remote, peaceful setting.
