Rustic style cabin located on working farm with ponds, fields, privacy, and wildlife.
The farm was purchased and caltivated to become a tree farm. My dad has since changed direction, leasing out 50% of the land to local farmers.
Crops range from alfalfa, wheat, and corn. There are cattle on the backend of the property.
The farm was part of the Long Family Farm which was land granted to them by Thomas Jefferson in the early 1800's. My father purchased his section of the land late 1980's.
The cabin was built in the early 1990's as a place to stay for my mom and dad, prior to building the main house about 2,000 feet up the "hill" from the cabin. I built it myself (with help of my dad) during my college years; now I am an architect / builder.
The cabin has been used by family members over the years, is appointed with rustic mid-western style furniture, and is a great retreat for a single professional, couple, family up to 6, and even 2 couples.
Up until a few years ago the cabin was used by members of the US Forest Service as a home away from home, as well as leased out to a few professional couples who decided to "get away from city life".
The Cabin (or as my dad likes to call it "The Shed") is sited next to a 1 acre pond which has bass and other fish, guest are welcomed to fished the pond - I think there are fishing pole in the cabin - but please practice catch and release.
Dogs are more than welcome! All we ask is to keep them of the furniture and to please clean up after them.
Please beware! There is a "herd" of deer - numbering about 20 that live on the farm, as well as surrounding farms, so if you have dogs this maybe a new experience for them (the dogs). No worries, the deer take care of themselves just fine as my dad's little dog has tried her best to catch them. It's never happen :)

Interaktion mit Gästen
My dad and his little Jack Russell Terrier (Keily) may check you in, show you around the cabin, as well as main points of the farm, though for the most part will have little interaction so as to allow you privacy.
He can be available for any questions which you may have concerning the cabin and surrounding area.

+ During the summer a past-time is to layout in the fields and count Shooting Stars. One evening I counted no less that 100; see how many you can count, let us know!
+ Since it is a working farm please don't be surprised by the mooing of cows in the fields, or the peacocks down at the original farm house, as the sun raises.
+ The Shenandoah River is a short drive (about 15 mins) with access to boat ramps. Tubing is a favorite! I have tubed with friends from the inlet of 340 / 211 access to just a little south of Front Royal. It's a lazy all day event, fun to bring coolers with drinks and food.
+ I'd like to suggest that if more than 4 people / children are staying at the cabin, please bring sleeping bags / air mattress to accommodate since there is only a queen bed in the bedroom, and a pull out sofa bed (queen) in the main living space. There is enough room on the screened in porch to place air mattresses / sleeping bags.
+ The cabin water heater is small. Unfortunately if you take a 10 minute shower, you'll run out of warm water and have to wait a few hours for the heater to produce hot water.
+ Space heaters are provided since there is no central heating.
+ You may use the fire-stove, my dad can show you how to damper the air. The stove will heat up the cabin very well throughout the main space.
+ Guest are not allowed to rent movies on the cabin's cable / sat box.
- Please, no major parties at the cabin
