About the property

1 Bdrm, 1 Bath, River Rock Shower, 65 Acres, River, Appalachian Trail, Fishing

Come relax, rejuvenate, and reconnect with your loved one at this unique mountain cabin. The sounds of birds in the air, wind through the trees, and fresh mountain air is sure to relax you. Whether you are inside the cabin or out you will feel in touch with nature through an expansive outdoor view through the windows. Come discover what makes this cabin so unique. This is a modern rustic mountain cabin with many unique qualities sure to please, including: a river rock shower big enough for two with two shower heads and body sprays, comfortable handcrafted king size bed, copper sinks, black walnut wood countertops throughout, many handcrafted pieces of furniture, stainless steel appliances, timber frame beam ceiling, large front porch, gas fireplace, bark siding on the exterior, live moss roof, and copper rain chains. All this is dwarfed compared to the location. Situated on 65 acres, overlooking thousands of acres of untouched mountain views, not one other house or streetlight can be seen, gaze at the star filled night sky, listen to the river rush in the distance, or the creek beside the cabin trickle down the mountain, your worldly worries are sure to melt away.

Take a walk down the 2.5 mile fly fishing trail that parallels the river adjoining the property, a blue ribbon trout fishing stream, hike the Appalachian Trail that’s within walking distance of the cabin, take a short drive and hike to several nearby waterfalls, explore Grayson Highlands State Park and Mount Rogers, the highest peak in Virginia about 30 minutes away, go paddle boating on Hungry Mother Lake only 25 minutes away, kayak or canoe the New River 30 minutes away, bike the Virginia Creeper Trail 25 minutes away, shop and eat in downtown Marion with several unique restaurants, antique shops, and distillery only 15 minutes away, catch a show at the Lincoln Theatre downtown or visit the soon to open Wayne Henderson School of art and music, shop the Saturday morning farmers market downtown, attend one of the several festivals throughout the year in the area. The cabin is centrally located to many outdoor activities and local attractions.

Fantastic, relaxing, romantic retreat

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was wonderful. From the second we arrived to the moment we left, we were overwhelmed by Ryan's attention to detail in the cabin and in making every part of our retreat comfortable and luxurious. Even the rain didn't put a hamper on the weekend - the roof over the hot tub (especially with the sky lights) and the large porch were the perfect places to sit and relax as the rain fell all around us. The surrounding hiking was lovely, but we could have easily spent the whole time enjoying the cabin's amenities and been totally content. We've already recommended the place to several of our friends and we dearly hope we can come back in the near future. The five-hour drive from our Ohio home was worth every moment of our three day weekend. I would five out of five (ten out of five!) recommend this fabulous retreat. Thank you, Ryan!

Magical Property

We loved the Laurel Ridge Cabin!! My only disappointment was there is no mountain view when there are leaves on the trees.

Perfect setting in Nature.

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place to stay. The cabin has everything you need and all finishes are well done. The location is secluded and perfect for that get away from the busy life. There is plenty of walking trails near by on property and some with some great views. Also not that far away is the Mt Rogers area where there is more. Enjoyed the stay would love to come back in the future.

Luxtury in The Middle of The Woods

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We had such a great time that we extended our stay! The cabin was very comfortable from the chairs on the patio, the bed and bedding, shower, hot tub and the decor. The cabin actually has bark siding and moss growing on the roof; though it sounds rustic, it is very luxurious and beautifully created. Close to the Lincoln Theater, Appalachian trail, and must do Channels trail. Check out the fish hatchery and trail, see trout in the river. After all the trails you can rest and relax in the comfortable hot tub and listen to nature and if you're really quiet, you may see a deer (never got to see a bear). Close enough to town, but can also cook and hideout at the cabin and property. Worth a trip, you won't be disappointed.

In a word...spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best rental my wife and I have ever stayed in. The attention to detail in every aspect of the property was incredible. The unique quality of the craftsmanship, furniture, setting, shower, hot tub and everything else about this cabin, were fabulous. It was very convenient to Marion, Grayson Highlands, the Virginia Creeper Trail, Mt. Rogers and more. All in all, Laurel Cabin is a 5 Star retreat.
