Forest Edge Overlook - Borders Nat'l Forest - Last Cabin on Private Dead End Rd
Please Read The Entire Description: This is now our most popular cabin. The cabin has been updated inside. We've not done much of anything to the outside of the cabin since we bought it. Forest Edge Overlook, sits at the end of a private dead end road that directly borders the George Washington National Forest. The cabin has 3 bedrooms, one bathroom and a loft (with low ceilings) with several 6 mattresses in it (two twin, 3 full and one queen). The bathroom has a garden size soaker tub/shower with real river rock walls hand picked from our land on the river below. The kitchen has all wood cabinets and stainless steel appliances and a real river rock back splash. The counter tops were custom made out of hickory and fit with the decor perfectly. The front door is even dutch style, which opens up from both the top and the bottom. This place has character!!! You will not find this with any new construction property! This being said, it is not new construction and is an old cabin and therefore it will have quirks and such, but isn't that why you wanted to come stay at a cabin in the first place? :) Please note that looking at the description on the phone does not show you all of the descriptive characteristics next to the amenities. you will have to look on a computer to see all detail of amenities. Examples of this include heaters being floor heaters not central heat, AC being window unit not Central AC, fire pit and wood stove wood is available for a fee. These are examples but are not limited to these things. The large 80+ year old stone fireplace is amazing and is the centerpiece of the living room and extends all the way up through the roof. There is currently a wood stove in the fireplace and there is a glass door so that you can see the fire. The ceiling in the loft is not very high, but most adults should be able to fit. The loft is not recommended for kids under 4 years of age simply because you have to climb a ladder to access it. Outside there is a nice size deck from which you can see into the valley below when there are no leaves. During the Summer months the leaves hide the cabin from the rest of the world below. The cabin does have a wood stove and an outdoor fire pit. Firewood may be purchased in advance (please do not bring your own firewood whereas it can spread the Emerald Ash Borer). Next to the cabin is an old cobbler shop which we hope to remodel someday (it currently has rather unattractive old asphalt red shingle siding) as a honeymoon suite or getaway of its own. We have not done any landscaping to the outside of the cabin and the grounds are rustic... the two garages also need to be cosmetically remodeled. We are also planning on adding more parking and removing an old stone wall to make room for more vehicles... there is currently enough room for 4 vehicles. We do allow for one night stays, but there is two night minimum for weekend stays (either Friday and Saturday night or Saturday & Sunday nights). Pets are welcome, but we do require a Pet Fee of $65 per pet. No pets on furniture or linens. Forest Edge Overlook is a great place to see the stars. On clear nights, you can see thousands of stars overhead. It is a beautiful sight. Check in time is 4:00 pm until 7 pm eastern and checkout is 11 am. Early check-ins, before 4, or Late check-ins, after 7 pm, and late checkouts, after 11 am, require a $75 per hour fee. Please ask in advance about late check-ins.
