Before you read anything here, scroll down and look at the second picture. It is the view of the North Fork of the New River in the front yard of The Cabin. When we are at The Cabin, we spend as much time as possible on our wonderful front porch- rocking, swinging, eating, hosting parties, roasting s’mores around the fire pit, napping in the hammock, or waving at people drifting by in the beautiful New River. When nighttime comes, we move inside to the great room and light the fireplace. The rustic chandelier lights the cathedral ceiling and the beautiful wood floors, walls and ceilings. Our family enjoys the evenings listening to beautiful music and playing games with friends, but the wifi is available if we simply have to check emails. A fully stocked kitchen allows plenty of room to make a quick snack, or a family feast.
When it is time for bed, the master suite has a king bed with ensuite bathroom with a walk in shower. A second bathroom has a Jacuzzi bathtub to enjoy. Three other bedrooms offer a king bed, kind bed, and rear room with bunk single beds, and a full bed. Back over the great room is a loft bedroom (open to great room). The ladder up to the loft is sturdy and an easy climb up to two more double beds. The kids always fight to see who gets to sleep in the loft.
When morning comes, everyone is ready to hit the river. The North Fork of the New River is literally in the front yard. The river is about 40 feet wide in front of the cabin, but only a few feet deep. For those wishing more adventure than fishing, swimming around and skipping rocks, canoeing and tubing are always an option. If shopping is more your speed, West Jefferson and Jefferson are about a 10 minute drive. The Ashe County Cheese Factory, art galleries, fresco churches and shops are great fun. If hiking is more your speed, the possibilities in the area are endless. For bikers, the top of the Virginia Creeper trail at White Top is only 30 minutes away.
Vacations are about making memories with the people you love. Our family has enjoyed The Cabin for many years, and now that we have renovated it, we enjoy sharing it with friends. We look forward to sharing it with you.
