The covered porch boasts a swing and rocking chairs overlooking the creek...the perfect place for diving into that next novel! Adjacent to the cabin is a pavilion complete with charcoal grill and picnic tables and is perfect for outdoor meals - rain or shine! While there are 2 other cabins on the property, each has it's very own charcoal grill and fire ring and with over a half-mile of creek frontage, there is plenty of stream for you to explore.

About New River Outdoor Co.

The Stoudenmires opened for business out of the first floor of their home in Pearisburg, VA in the spring of 2004. Initially, they offered canoe and kayak rentals and guided smallmouth trips on the New River, as well as two cabin rentals on their newly purchased 50-acre property on Walker Creek. They soon added to their cabin rental line-up by building the Bear Foot Cabin which opened for rental at the beginning of the 2008. The increasing demand for their guiding, outfitting and lodging services continued to grow so they built another cabin and moved their place of business to its current location in Pembroke, VA for the 2009 season.

Since moving their business to Pembroke, the Stoudenmires have built an additional log cabin (Anglers' Roost) and remodeled two rentals (including the Creekside Lodge). In 2013, they took a winter off from cabin projects and focused on expanding their family with the birth of their daughter, whose presence has since become the highlight of both our long-time & new visitors. In the fall of 2015, they embarked on their latest project, purchasing another 90-acres on Walker Creek, just upstream from their original location, and breaking ground on their Red Pine Cottage. It opened for rentals in June of 2016 and is the first in their new series of high-end vacation rentals they plan to unveil over the course of the next several years. Currently, Walker Creek Retreat encompasses five cabins and cottages offering guests a collection of unique, water-front lodging options in the New River Valley .

New River Outdoor Co. purchased this cabin in 2008

Why New River Outdoor Co. chose Pembroke

Starting a marriage and business at the same time, from ground zero, was not an easy proposition. But with lots of prayers, patience and hard work, Britt & Leigh Stoudenmire have built their business and reputation in the tourism industry while establishing themselves as one of the top outfitters, guide services, and cabin retreats in Virginia. From the very beginning, the Stoudenmires have modeled their businesses by putting an emphasis on their clients' experience and providing quality services and have even received numerous awards for their work. They are excited about what the future holds and look forward to continuing to provide first-class recreational and lodging opportunities to those visiting the New River Valley.

What makes this cabin unique

The Bear Foot Cabin was our first build so it will always hold a special place in our hearts. We love adding the special touches whether it be the galvanized bucket for the bathroom sink or the hand-made porch swing by Leigh's dad. We strive to make it as comfortable as home. A unique benefit of the Bear Foot Cabin is our ability to provide kayak rentals that are delivered right to your cabin and/or floats on the New River for either guided fishing excursions or self-guided canoe/kayak trips. We've been outfitting folks on the river and lodging families/groups in our cabins for 14 years and we like to think we have a special place that can't help but build lasting memories for you and yours as well.

New River Outdoor Company Bear Food Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Had never used any of the services or properties of the New River Outdoor Co before but this January will not be our last! Stayed at the Bear Food Cabin for our Honeymoon and with the winter rates for a new family on a budget, it was the PERFECT place for a romantic winter getaway! Very upscale for a 'camping cabin.' You have to experience it to believe it!

Exactly what we were looking for!!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at just the right time to see the autumn leaves and had perfect weather. The cabin was very charming, comfortable and clean and we highly recommend it. There was no wifi but you can maneuver thru that over a weekend. The cabin and surrounding property were beautiful and Leigh and Ann Marie were awesome and friendly people to work with.

Wonderful stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two nights at Bear Foot cabin and had a wonderful experience. Leigh and Britt made everything very easy from booking to check in to check out. The cabin is very well stocked with all the necessities. Everything was squeaky clean when we arrived. If you have the chance, go have dinner at Palisades in Eggleston! We had a great dinner there! In our short time in the area, we hit some of the highlights, but we want to come back for sure so we can explore more of what there is to offer! Thanks so much, New River Outdoor Company! We'll be return guests!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed five nights at Bear Foot cabin and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Amazing scenery, great fishing, and cool evenings in August left us with wonderful memories and the thought; “the mountains are calling and I must go”. The modern log cabin was very clean, well equipped, and nicely decorated. The owners and staff at New River Outdoor Company (NROC) were outstanding. Southern charm and hospitality are alive and well in southern Virginia. We won’t hesitate to recommend NROC to our friends and family.
