Hinton cabin description

You can't buy serenity--but you can rent it.
SUMMER VACATION WEEKS ARE ALMOST GONE! (WEEKLY, SATURDAY TO SATURDAY). AFTER LABOR DAY, IONA IS AVAILABLE FOR 2-3 NIGHT WEEKEND GETAWAYS, TOO. TIME TO BOOK YOUR FALL ROMANTIC R & R RETREAT!

Autumn is a perfect season to enjoy the beauty of rural West Virginia. Warm, sunny days, fall color, crisp, star-filled nights--discover Summers County at its harvest best.

Iona Cabin is located on Big Creek, just half a mile from the Greenbrier River and some of the best small-mouth bass fishing in the East, and three miles from the confluence of the Greenbrier with the New River. Bluestone Lake, the New River Gorge National River, and several state parks and wildlife management areas make this one of West Virginia's most scenic locations.

With Iona Cabin rental, you get exclusive use of the entire 11 acre, secluded property, accessed by a private, graveled driveway from Big Creek Road. It is entirely wooded, and the beautiful, cascading Big Creek tumbles right through it, with your private walking trail alongside the stream. Just below the cabin itself, you have your own natural 'swimming hole.'

Iona Cabin is a two-bedroom log cabin retreat, with two adjoining decks. It has a great room with cathedral ceiling, fully-equipped kitchen, master bedroom, and shower-bath on the first floor. Upstairs, the loft contains a second bedroom and a half-bath. There is an outdoor shower below the deck.
.
Iona Cabin is a quiet, get-away retreat. You’ll find your anxiety level plummeting as you enter the long, private driveway, and you'll want to spend days on end just luxuriating in the peace and serenity of this beautiful and tranquil, natural setting of almost eleven acres, clad in hardwood, hemlock, and native rhododendron. If inner harmony is your goal, Iona Cabin is your destination.

Iona Cabin is also a great home base for an active, outdoor vacation. Whether you like fishing or hunting; skiing on water or snow; river 'tubing,' white-water rafting, kayaking, or canoeing; hiking or mountain biking; golfing; horse-back riding; or sight-seeing, Iona Cabin is right in the center of a wealth of recreational opportunities--that is, if you can tear yourself away from your own private swimming hole on the babbling Big Creek.

Nearby Hinton is an authentic West Virginia, Appalachian town, quaint and charming, filled with friendly and hospitable people. As yet unspoiled by big city ways and influences, Hinton is blessed with natural beauty, access to rivers, lakes, and mountains, proximity to state and national parks and forests, and easy accessibility from urban centers in Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina, making it an ideal base for get-away excursions whether for quiet retreat or active, outdoor fun.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: Donald and Linda Vinson live in Huntington, WV. Donald is Canon for Mission and Transitions, Episcopal Diocese of West Virginia, and Linda is Chair for Human Services for MountWest Community and Technical College. They have two grown sons (one married), and Iona Cabin offers a much-needed refuge.

                  Why the Owner Chose Hinton:
                  The Hinton area has everything for outdoor recreation and enjoyment of nature, but it is yet undiscovered by large commercial interests. We're able to have 10+ acres of our own here, whereas in other places, we'd be jammed onto a tiny lot. No traffic, no crowds, no pressures. The only teeming masses we see are wildlife!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Blessed solitude, quiet reflection on the creekside watching the butterfly traffic. Fishing, hiking, cycling, swimming, tubing, all close at hand.
