Property description

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. 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 and garage.

In the Winter this makes the prefect romantic weekend get away with the fireplaces.

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. They are located approximately 13.8 miles north. If you don't have water vehicles they can rented at Twin River Outfitters in Buchanan.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Larry and I have been together since 1981 and married in 1984. We've owned a dog grooming shop for the past 25 years. We have two sons that love to come down there with us and bring their their friends to fish, hike and kayak or just hang out. We plan to retire on this lot, so we can continue to enjoy the great outdoors! Our sons are in college and heading to college. We are still traveling quite a bit. We don't have the time go to the cabin as much as we would like so we thought we'd try renting it as a vacation home.

Why the Owner Chose Eagle Rock, VA, USA:
We have always loved Craig Creek area. After many years of dreaming about owning a place on the creek, this lot came available at the right time for us. So in 2012 we built our garage and a large RV pad. Well, that turned into a temporary cabin and screen porch. We have plans to build our permanent retire home adjacent to the garage.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This tiny cabin took nearly two years to complete. It has 60 yr reclaimed beaded pine boards from a house in Blacksburg and another in Vinton. 80 yr old rough sawn tongue and groove doors from a cabin in Salem. 60 yr Metal cabinets from a home in Lynchburg. The bathroom vanity is an antique washstand refinished and converted. When hand building and designing this cabin I wanted to feel great when I was there and so all the special touches were done to create that atomosphere. We hope you'll feel the same.
