About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our cabin is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia at Ivanhoe, within steps of the New River and the New River Trail State Park. It is the perfect place for a romantic get-away, quality time with the family, or fun with friends.

Wake up to the soothing sounds of the river, then take an early morning nature walk or bicycle ride in the mountain mist. You may see various birds, white tail deer, rabbits, and even a wild turkey. There are also many varieties of native wildflowers.

In the heat of the day enjoy a tube or kayak trip. Relax in the cool evening on the deck overlooking the River. Whatever you choose to do, we know you will enjoy your stay in our peaceful country retreat.

We found this the perfect place to get some r & r. We were really looking foward to taking a hike and spend some time with mother-earth but it rained most of our stay there. Yet we found the cabin had everything we needed to relax. We spent most our time just on the deck enjoying the rain and each other's company. Its a great home away from home for anyone wanting to get away from the city life and just wanting to have some quality time. The area is sooo quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Better Than expected

  • 5 of 5

As nice as the pictures are they don't begin to do this cabin justice. On a scale of 1-100 I would rate it at around 98. The owners go above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need. We plan on going again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice place to get away.

Tranquility is a good description for this home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home with 2 couples who were there for the purpose of riding motorcycles on the wonderful Virginia/North Carolina roads. We stayed for 5 nights and did 4 day rides out from here. We had 7 couples in total and 5 couples stayed in their sister home, Coldridge Manor, 2.4 miles away. The home met our needs very well and the owner was very kind to us and even drove us in to town to pick up pizza. He also built us a bonfire. Two helpful hints: There are 2 bathrooms, 1 of them is accessible only by going outside and down some stairs and using a sliding door to enter basement level, and if you are traveling by motorcycle you should know that there is about ¼ mile of gravel road to travel right before you get to the house, then down a small gravel driveway to park, we traveled it several times without incident. Great home! We had a lot of fun.

Wonderful and Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is exactly as described. The place is on a wonderful and beautiful piece of property. The cabin was exceptionally clean and had everything we needed for the weekend. We had a great time relaxing and playing ping pong downstairs. We will go back when the weather is warm and we can sit by the river. I highly recommend this place!

Nice, but pics don't show full surroundings

  • 3 of 5

This is a very nice cabin that is very kid friendly. Only downside is the horse farm and junky rv's/tents adjoining the property. The river access is sometimes clogged by these people. The house is great, but not recommended if you're the serious fisherman.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments about our cabin. We are sorry that you were bothered by the neighboring property. That is not our property and we have no control. Our lot is more than two acres and we keep it maintained for our guests enjoyment. We also cannot control the river. For serious fisherman, I would reccomend spring or fall when the property is more secluded.

perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! My guests included 4 adults ages 22 and 2 children ages 16 months. We stayed the weekend at the shady river cabin and had a great stay. We arrived a little late and found the cabin to be waiting for us. We didn't need to leave for anything! The kids were able to run in the yard and even got to see horses next to us. The Picketts were so helpful from the time we placed the reservations untill we left. The cabin was so much fun we didn't even need to leave to find things to do because we enjoyed just being there. We all didn't want the weekend to end at all and also said we wish we could have stayed longer. We will be staying at the cabin many more times when we want to go somewhere! Hands down one of our most memorable vacations!
