HOMEAWAY HAS CHANGED THEIR POLICIES: KIDS ARE NOW BEING CHARGED THROUGH THE BOOK IT NOW OPTION. WE DO NOT CHARGE FOR KIDS UNDER 18. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BOOK THROUGH THE BOOK IT NOW, JUST PUT THE NUMBER OF ADULTS. ADD A NOTE OF HOW MANY KIDS THERE ARE AND WE WILL CHANGE IT IN THE RESERVATION. THIS WILL ALLOW YOU TO BOOK IT YOURSELF AND NOT HAVE THE EXTRA FEES.

Please read the whole description:

Lower Rawley Cabin is a real cabin built many years ago as a Summer cabin getaway in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Located in historic Rawley Springs, Lower Rawley Cabin offers access to hiking, biking, fishing and walking trails all right out your front door. There are no steps leading up to this cabin (if you use the backdoor).

We do allow for one night stays, but there is two night minimum for weekend stays (either Friday and Saturday night or Saturday & Sunday nights).

Lower Rawley Cabin has two bedrooms and one bathroom (bathroom is older, not updated, but we plan to update the bathroom soon. Both bedrooms have queen size beds. The second bedroom is very small though, but it does have a queen size bed. The loft (with very low ceilings) has one queen, one full and two twin size mattresses on the floor. The loft has a very low ceiling that is best suited for kids or young adults (or adventurous younger adults).

The wood stove in the living room puts out enough heat to heat the the entire house no matter how cold it may get outside. There is a floor model A/C unit in the living room which helps keep the cabin cool on warmer days, but it is usually cooler here in the mountain anyway most days in the Summer.

The cabin is on a private dead end road with 11 other cabins on it, but the area is almost always quiet and peaceful year round. Only half of the cabins on the road ever really get used though.

Pets are welcome but we do require a pet fee when pets stay at the cabin. On clear nights, you can see thousands of stars overhead. It is a beautiful sight. Also during the spring and summer months, you can see humming birds everywhere. We place feeders off the front porch of the house and have personally seen upwards of 20 birds feeding on them at one time in the past.
Checking is 4:00 pm and checkout is 11 am.
The house can fit 12 people, but please note that the loft does have low ceilings. On side note, there are no screens on the windows. We are looking to replace all the windows at some point though.

We do have chickens, two ponies (a mama and her baby) and 7 baby goats (5 of which are fainting goats) all at this cabin now. There are also a few dogs inside the fence to protect the animals from foxes. They are fenced, so there is no worry about them escaping, but kids (and most adults) have love getting to pet and feed the animals (carrots are a big favorite). We also give all of our guests free fresh eggs from our very own chickens. :)

We just had a new well drilled at Lower Rawley Cabin in February. The water from the old well had iron and sulphur in it, which stained some of the fixtures including the bathtub, sink and toilet. The new also has iron in it and we had a treatment system for the new well which seems to be working well. The water is still usable, but could possibly have an iron taste, sulphur smell and orange tint to it at times (we haven't noticed this since the treatment system went it though). We just wanted our guests to be aware of this.

Pets are welcome at all of our properties. If you or someone in your group is allergic to pets or anything else (detergent, air fresheners, etc), please let us know in advance so we can discuss this prior to your booking and then also prior to your arrival.

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About: We moved to Virginia so I (Steven) could finish my college degree, but our vacation rental business got in the way... My wife had to quit teaching Junior High in a neighboring county last year to help me run the business. We have two daughters and another baby due in July. We also have 8 rescue dogs and 2 rescue cats. We love the Rawley Springs and all of its beauty.

                  Why Harrisonburg:
                  This property borders our other properties... and this one is across the road from the river, so it fits in perfectly with our vacation rental cabins. Plus it was the perfect spot to add some farm animals so our guests can a real taste of the country.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Walking Trails and close proximity to the rivers and the George Washington National Forest.
