This 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house was originally a log cabin and housed the saloon next to the stage coach inn in Mt. Crawford in the 1850's. The house sits on South Main Street in Mt. Crawford and has a nice size backyard. It is just 5 miles south of Harrisonburg and is conveniently located off either exit 235 or 240 of Interstate 81, so this is the perfect alternative to a hotel while traveling through the area.
We are just 5 miles from the campus of James Madison University (JMU) and only 2 miles from Bridgewater College. Eastern Mennonite University is only 11 miles away.
This is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house. This house sleeps 6 in beds and the maximum occupancy is 9 guests. Two of the doors have good size dents in them. When we remodel the house we will change these out.
We check in all guests. Check in time is 4:00 pm until 7 pm and checkout is 11 am. Early check-ins, before 4, or Late check-ins, after 7 pm, and late checkouts, after 11 am, require a $75 per hour fee. These check-ins and checkouts require prior approval. No approval results in cancellation without refund.
No smoking in the cabin. No beer pong or Hookahs. Noise must kept to a minimum and quiet hours are 9 pm to 9 am.
Guests are required to sign a rental agreement before arrival and provide a government issued photo ID. All members of party must provide the ids but do not have to sign contract. For this reason, the person who makes the reservation has to be the there at the time of check-in, unless the contract is signed and arrangements are made for someone else to check-in in advance.
If these are not done by the day before arrival reservation will be cancelled.
Because this is an older house, there are things you should expect to find in a really old house such as spider webs (we clean them for every guest but they do reappear quickly sometimes), ladybugs, ants, critters, flies, insects or stink bugs during certain times of the year. In all honesty, many of these can be found in every house in America... but we are just stating the obvious. There will no refund of any kind should any of these be present during your stay (please do let us know though so that we may take appropriate action should any of these be found).
Pets are welcome at all of our properties. Each property has a different scent. This is an older house and will not smell like new construction so please keep that in mind if you are sensitive to smells. Those with fireplaces will have the scent of a wood burning fire (this house does NOT have a working fireplace currently though we hope to make the fireplaces work in the future). We cannot be responsible for determining what you will or will not be sensitive to though. This is truly impossible to determine ahead of time. And yes, this is in here because people complained about the smell of a fireplace in a cabin with a fireplace and the smell of cedar in a cabin with cedar walls. Each cabin and house will have its own unique scent. We enjoy the uniqueness of them all. Again, this house is pet-friendly.
All pet fee(s), early/late check-in or late check-out, firewood or extra person fees are not refundable once paid. Pets are welcome, but require a pet fee of $55 per pet per stay. Please understand that by clicking on the pet button, you are only paying for one pet. The website doesn't have the ability to charge for two pets at one time.
A recent guest broke a board on the back porch. It is covered by another board.
There will be a charge of $30 an hour for guests arriving more than 30 minutes later than the arrival time that they give us on the day of arrival. Arrival times must be sent in the message thread upon booking.
No smoking in the property. This will result in an automatic cancellation.
Failure to show up/check in or contact owner before 4 of day of arrival will result in cancellation without refund. Host reserves the right to re-book property if guest does NOT contact owner.
Illegal drugs will not permitted on our properties under any circumstances. Smoking is not permitted inside any house or cabin or on any screen porch. There will be a $750 charge for any smoking in either of these areas. Illegal drugs being used anywhere on the property will result in a $750 charge. Kegs and hookahs are not permitted anywhere on property under any circumstances. There will be a $500 charge should either of these items (kegs or hookahs) be found on the property (this includes outside areas too). If smoking (inside or on screen porches), illegal drugs (meaning what is illegal in Virginia), keg(s), hookah(s) or fireworks (there is a $500 fine for having fireworks or for shooting firearms at a property) are found on the property the guest will be asked to leave and there will be no refund whatsoever for any portion of the stay (including any future days/nights). Guests failing to check-out by 11 am agree to pay $75 an hour for a late check-out beginning at 11:01 am. If the guest is still there at 12:00 noon then then the charge is another $75 and so on with each additional hour the guest overstays their reservation. Late check-outs require prior written permission and applicable late check-out fees to be paid.
No check-ins or checkouts on Thanksgiving or Christmas Day. Owners only have the right to cancel a reservation without refund for reservations made to check in or out on these days. If owners allow the booking, a charge of $100 will be charged to check-in on these days.
Due to the excessive rain we've received in the last two months, the properties may not have cut grasses and may have some damages to them. We are working to resolve these issues as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
