Embedded in the George Washington National Forest at Hidden valley and overlooking the Jackson River Valley. This camp comprised of 40 acres and a mile of frontage on Chimney Run will connect you with the beauty of Bath County by providing a truly outdoor experience while offering modern living conveniences. The property offers an on-property hike of two miles and connects to the Hidden Valley trail system on the Cobbler Mountain Trail. The camp offers room for families to play lawn sports and relax together. Only miles from all that Warm Springs, The Homestead, Lake Moomaw offer and a short hike to the Jackson River in Hidden Valley.
This is a camp that prefers the company of our canine friends. With thousands of acres of surrounding forest and wildlife, dogs that chase may need restraint.
Two bedrooms are heated, all have power. The outdoor shower offers morning showers above a 200ft bluff oriented to the sunrise. The main shelter offers a full indoor bath, tiled shower, open air (under roof) kitchen, dining and living. The shelter kitchen is fully equipped with cooktop, countertop oven, coffee maker, fridge, cookware and table wares.
The camp provides a large in ground firepit for outdoor enjoyment and a custom steel chiminea for fires enjoyed under the shelter roof. Outdoor grill station equipped with work table, smoker and grills. The firepit is equipped with a grill frame that invites use of the large paella pan for group meals prepared together over the fire. A kiosk is equipped with multiple croquet sets, horseshoe set, bocce and bean bag toss boards.
The four bedrooms are comprised of:
-The Love Shack: A small heated cabin with two camp cots perfect for kids to have their own cabin.
-The sleeping cabins: Two screened cabins fitted with queen beds in perfect rustic charm.
-The main shelter: A heated bedroom and bath with a queen bed and ceiling fan.
All bedrooms have power and lighting. Guests will provide their own linens and bath towels. All beds have ample pillows, blankets as needed for the cool summer evenings.
A complete how-to camp manual is available for first time guests.
The camp is NOT fitted with televisions or land line phones or internet. Verizon service is suitable for phone but not data. Sprint and ATT&T coverage is 3G and somewhat reliable.
There is a property manager on site (but not near the camp) who can handle just about any question or issue should it arise.
The camp is seasonal and open Mid April through the end of September.
With prior approval guests may bring their own tents or campers for added capacity. Additional charges, if any, will be added by mutual agreement.
Note: Reservation requests often come in on weekends when we are at the camp ourselves. Typically I see the requests by texts but can not get on line to respond through VRBO. If this is the case expect my reply Sunday evening when we are home and reconnected.
Rates as we intend them:
-$100 camp setup fee regardless of stay length
-$350/night for first two nights regardless of starting day of the week.
-$200/night for additional nights capped at $1100 (+ $100 setup) for a full week.
-Single rentals limited to one week please.
We will be gracious with cancellations due to extended rain forecasts. Not fun for you and it is hard on the camp. If you cancel last minute we may withhold camp prep fee of $100 if that has already been done.
We will edit reservation requests to match these rates if the VRBO template does not fit your request.
