Get away from it all when you stay among nature in this secluded off-grid tiny cabin in the forest. Complete with outdoor grill, fire pit, picnic table, well maintained outhouse, miles of trails and a stocked catfish pond. This is a secluded off grid location without power, wifi, or cell service, so be prepared to UNPLUG and unwind. Firewood for your first campfire is provided along with one tank of propane to run the indoor camp stove. Five gallons of drinking water are included with coffee and a French press. There is a cooler, so just bring ice for your groceries. Please include an extra rental fee of $20 for pets. Multiple firewood bundles can be waiting for you at $8 each (a decent fire's worth per bundle). Directions: from I-81: Exit 114, head south on VA-8, turn right onto VA-750 (Alum Ridge Rd), we are on the left just after the horse ranch with red roofs. ~Two gravel driveways with Heartwood signs about 1/4 mile apart lead to the property and that is all you will see from the road. ~*Preferred* From the first driveway marked “heartwood guests only”, take the gravel fork to the LEFT toward the wooden Fox Den sign with hearts reflectors. ~Additional Access: From the “heartwood deliveries” driveway stay to the right, go past the pond then turn RIGHT at the first gravel turn off. Once you reach the 3 car parking area, The Fox Den is a short walk down the gravel hill marked by the reflector. This is tricky after dark, so we recommend checking in by sunset.This is a secluded Off-Grid A frame cabin in the woods of our 66 acres. We live on the property along with another traditional cabin. Water can be collected from a community mountain spring in the clearing by the main house. Bring your fishing poles and some chicken livers when the weather is warm, and you are almost guaranteed to catch a catfish! Catch and release is free, $2 a pound to keep. Please modify your hooks for catch and release (we can show you how). There is no cell coverage at the cabin, but we have installed a cell signal amplifier at the pond and have great cell and data service from the nearest Verizon tower (several carriers use this network). Others may be iffy. During late fall/winter hunting season, you may encounter a deer being dressed from the deer hanger, or fish being cleaned in the catfish shack during summer. There will occasionally be a tractor or two running during the day. Wear something orange (two vests are provided during hunting seasons) while exploring close to the property line at the top of the mountain during the first and last hours of daylight. We will notify you the day before if my husband or father-in-law (experienced hunters) plan to be in the woods. We welcome all walks of life here, including dogs who get along well with other animals. Our dog, Silas, runs free and may try to follow you on your hikes. Just let us know if he is a pest. We look forward to meeting you and yours!

Peaceful and great place to unwind. Easy to find with the directions given and if you're looking to be off grid but still have some amenities this is a great place. Hiking trail on the property was unexpected and was a highlight for me.

Absolutely amazing, very private and off the grid. So many amenities that were a surprise! Violet ( the host dog) was a sweetheart! She came to check on us each morning. Very well maintained and safe! The A-frame was beautiful! Will be back! ❤️💕🥰

Easy to find, really serene place. More amenities in the a frame than we expected which was really nice.

Beautiful, quiet place with everything you need to be comfortable. When I arrived I came up a different driveway than most do so the directions weren’t accurate for me, but the host answered her phone and helped me out. And their dog started running ahead of my car showing me the way. So cute! Wonderful, convenient place close to downtown. I will definitely be returning.

Absolutely no communication from Host. Incorrect directions for Google Maps. We were driving around at night for thirty minutes to try to find the cabin. I would suggest curtains for the windows. It is a beautiful location but improvements should be made.

Lovely little spot in the woods.
This place is as adorable in real life as it is in the pictures. Very private and well equipped. Had several lanterns, a charging box for phones and candles. Bring bedding (pillows, sheets, blankets) - this did not occur to us and we had to go buy them (our fault, not the host). Bring chairs for the firepit area (handcrafted benches were lovely, but camp chairs are more comfortable). And we wish we had brough a string of battery LEDS, the ones in the pictures likely brought by a guest and they would have been a nice addition. The only neighbors we saw were the deer outside our door. Very accessible to Floyd, wineries and local hikes
