This 900 square feet, two story cabin (our garage turned into a cabin until we build our retirement home here) was completed in 2013. Conveniently, located 2 miles off Route 220 sitting on 2.2 acres. 111 feet private access of Craig Creek is in your back yard and Jefferson Nation Forest is in your front yard. Quiet, beautiful lot with Roaring Run and James River very close. Bring your Kayaks/Canoes or Tubes and float from the back yard to the James River. My husband calls this my "Princess Camping". The Cabin is a studio style with semi private bedroom queen size bed, infrared heater and the living room has a vent-free propane fireplace, also two full size futons that have thick mattresses, full kitchen, living area has a bar, laundry room with propane heater, bathroom with large rain shower, large patio, Screened in porch with swinging bed and dining table (enclosed during the winter with a propane heater), fire pit, corn hole boards and garage.
In the Winter this makes the prefect romantic weekend get away with the fireplace.
Bring your mountain bikes and ride the gravel roads. Once you cross the Phoenix Historic RR Bridge there isn't much traffic and it is the only way in and out to the cabin. There are great trails within an hour drive; Scenic Jackson, Greenbrier River Trail and the New River Trail.
There is hiking; Roaring Run, Douthat State Park and many others in the two National Forests: Jefferson (in front of the cabin) and George Washington National Forest.
Water: There is our pristine Craig Creek, James River (we are at the section called the "Upper James River Trail" the section from Eagle Rock to Springwood is a 14 miles stretch labeled 'Virginia Scenic River System') , the Jackson River and the Cow Pasture both make up the James River.
