Property description

Located in beautiful Highland County, Virginia nestled in a grove of sugar maples between Back Creek and Little Mountain. Wake up to valley views which are likely to include deer grazing in the meadow, hummingbirds at the feeder, or a Bald eagle or great blue heron fishing along the creek. This 28 acre property includes a sunny meadow with beautiful mountain views, picnic table by the creek and a mountain to climb!

The tastefully decorated cabin includes a master bedroom with queen bed, a second bedroom with two twin beds, one bathroom with laundry, a fully equipped kitchen, open living/dining area with cozy wood stove, a covered porch and a deck with hot tub and outdoor dining area with a gas grill. At the Cabin on Back Creek, you can enjoy the stars which light up the night sky, bird-watching, walking, or just relaxing with a book in the hammock, on the porch, or on the deck. In the early spring, we make maple syrup at the sugar house located adjacent to the Cabin. You are invited to watch (and smell!) the process of turning 40 gallons of sugar water into a gallon of pure maple syrup - or you can help us if you would like!

There are a variety of hunting and fishing opportunities nearby, and access to the George Washington National Forest is just two miles down the road.

The Cabin is located 16 miles from the quaint town of Monterey. Walking tours, galleries and shops, restaurants, beautiful mountain views, and friendly people make Highland County special all year round. Throughout the year, Monterey hosts numerous special events, the largest of which is the Highland County Maple Festival in March.

Located about 30 miles from Snowshoe Ski Resort, skiing, snowboard and tubing are available in season. Also nearby is the narrow-gauge railroad at Cass, West Virginia and the National Radio Observatory at Green Bank, WV.

Twenty miles south of the Cabin on Back Creek in neighboring Bath County are the towns of Warm Springs and Hot Springs, home to the historic Homestead resort and the Jefferson Pools mineral baths. These neighboring towns offer fine dining, golf, skiing/snowboarding, shopping, antiquing, chamber music at Garth Newel and a variety of art galleries.

The Cabin on Back Creek offers a peaceful retreat, surrounded by a variety of recreational opportunities.

Tour our sugar house and watch us turn sugar water into pure maple syrup (February & March). Attend the Highland County Maple Festival (the second & third weekends in March). Enjoy spring wildflowers and migrating birds. Summer is cool and mosquito-free! Outdoor games (badminton, croquet, and cornhole) available for use. The fall color (beginning in mid-September) is amazing. The Cabin is decorated for the Christmas season... truly a year-round retreat.

If you need additional entertainment, Pat is always willing to tell stories of growing up in the Allegheny mountains!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Pat has lived on Back Creek his entire life and has been making maple syrup since he was eight years old. Living in Highland County has taught him to literally 'live off the land'. Pat built the Cabin himself, his wife, Valerie did the decorating.

Why the Owner Chose Monterey:
After purchasing 'the sugarbush' to make maple syrup from the trees located there, we decided to share this little piece of heaven with other people.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The Cabin on Back Creek is a place to come a recharge your batteries, gain inspiration from the beauty of nature and generally chill out!
