Welcome to our cozy mountaintop cabin in the woods with great views. Easy access. One hour from Harrisonburg, VA and 10 minutes from Franklin, WV.
“The Bear Cub Cabin is a peaceful and relaxing getaway for those looking to unplug from the daily grind. Perfect for shutting in on a long weekend, but within a twenty minute drive to scenic Franklin, WV. Donna and Don have thought of the essentials for a wonderful stay. From just waking up to a beautiful sunrise, an early morning walk to the top of Sharpe Ridge and a lovely scenic drive to Spruce Knob, we saw it all. Thank you for sharing your cabin. We loved it! Casey & Michael”
Enjoy our comfortable cabin situated on 20 private wooded acres near several trout streams, George Washington National Forest, Virginia Game Commission, hiking trails, and caves. The cabin sleeps four, including a double bed and two twin beds in the loft. For skiing we are 1 hour and 30 minutes from snowshoe and 30 minutes from The Homestead. For fishing we are 5 minutes away from the Bullpasture, 10 minutes from the Cowpasture, and 25 minutes from the Jackson river.
“We had planned to go camping but the temps were supposed to get into the low 30s and we were worried about our girls (4 and 7) getting too cold so at the last minute, we searched for an alternative. This cabin was perfect. With no running water or electricity, in some ways it was more rustic than a campground, but the wood stove kept us toasty warm. We loved the peacefulness. The girls were nervous at first about the steep ladder upstairs but ended up really enjoying the loft. Because it was a last minute trip, we didn't really know what we were going to do and I didn't realize that there would be no phone service anywhere in the surrounding area so although I had read about hiking and other activities before we left, I couldn't access that information once there. We managed to have fun poking around but if I came that way again, I would be a little more prepared.”

“If Kevin and Emily's place is available, book it! You will not be disappointed. The home itself is full of thoughtful touches and is very comfortable. The view is truly astounding (in every direction), and unbeatable. As others have said, the pictures only capture part of how great the cottage is. It's built with quality in mind, and designed to capture as much light as possible. The kitchen is well-stocked and spacious. Our favorite part: the rocking chairs on the front porch where you can enjoy every part of your day, watching the livestock and taking in the rolling mountains. There are plenty of tips about local places to check out, but we ended up just spending our entire time on the property because it was so nice. We will be back!”
