Rugby Creek - Private Mountain Retreat... Exclusively Yours!

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms/showers (Sleeps 6-8)

One mile over the North Carolina state line, in Southwest Virginia, you'll discover, nestled amongst the Blue Ridge/Appalachian mountains, a well kept secret...'Rugby Creek!'

Within minutes of Grayson Highland State Park/Mount Rogers National Recreation area, the famed Virginia Creeper Trail, New River Trail, Appalachian Trail, Virginia Highland horse trails and only a 45 minutes drive from I-77 or I-81.

You can slip away from all the hectic pace, to a simple time... a simple place...

With our private 64 acre horse farm enveloping our two cabins on all sides, you are assured quiet, safe seclusion amid abundant wildlife.

Spend your days adventuring out and about. Come home to your own fully furnished, wood board and batten cabin. Restore your soul surrounded with breath-taking mountain vistas and fresh mountain air while enjoying the

porch, field stone stack fireplace and cathedral ceiling. Whip up some savory mountain cookin' grilling on the deck or in the fully equipped kitchen.

Excellent restaurants from 'country-scratch' cookin' to four star chefs are within 10 to 30 minutes drive. Perhaps a relaxing hot tub soak before turning in for the night is more to your liking. Or simply snuggle

down amongst sateen sheets and down comforters in either the California king bed in master bedroom or the queen bed or other queen bed room. A couple extra spaces are provided by the great room sofa. As a grand finale, mother nature promises a personal serenade as you slowly drift off to sleep.

Whether planning a honeymoon, anniversary, family reunion or personal escape, Rugby Creek can't be beat!

For the equestrian minded bring your horse along or rental horses are nearby. Our stable provides 15 large 12 by 12 stalls. Other pets at additional charge with permission.

Beautiful views and very private!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit.The cabin was decorated for Christmas including a real tree, very nice to arrive too! The cabin was very private with magnificent views from all directions! West Jefferson is only 15 miles away with great shops and restaurants, and the local people are very nice and welcoming.The only suggestion we would have is to have better cable/Internet service. Roku was there but did not work very well? But overall we had a great visit and would stay again.

Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I left the kids and animals behind to celebrate our anniversary at Overlook Cabin. It was just perfect. From the cozy and inviting decor to the glorious hot tub and comfy king size bed, we couldn't be more pleased! The gracious owners provide everything you need for grilling, cooking or just relaxing on the back deck while enjoying the breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains.
