Cabin on the Seven Bends

1 site 路 Lodging1 acres 路 Woodstock, VA
Our dream was to own a log cabin on the North Fork of the Shenandoah River. Sixteen years ago we accomplished that dream, giving us access to a Shenandoah Valley treasure, and yes, we are on the first of the Seven Bends. Although we live in the main log cabin, we are happy to share our tiny living screened cabin over looking the river with many activities available to you. Although we are only minutes from I81, the setting is very private, in the woods behind our home. Park at the main cabin and hike 200 feet down the hill to the secluded River Cabin overlooking the North Fork of the Shenandoah River. You'll have river access for fishing, swimming and paddling (kayaks and canoes provided), or you can just sit on the dock and watch the sunset. Retreat back into the screened cottage for a quiet restful evening or relax on the deck by a fire. We are a Glamping site... like a hotel stay in the woods. Close by are 100's of miles of hiking trails and the charming town of Woodstock offering free concerts, some of Virginia's finest wineries, the Brewhouse and other great local restaurants... come explore and adore. There is also an auxiliary deck in the trees for pitching your own tent or sleeping under the stars for additional campers. During cooler months, we have enclosed the sleeping/changing areas and provide a small heater for some limited warmth. 鈥淎nd into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul鈥 鈥 John Muir

The best camping near Cedar Creek & Belle Grove National Historical Park guide

Overview

About

Take a journey back to the Civil War with a trip to the Shenandoah Valley. 3,700 acres of land will carry you across Civil War battlefields and past plantations, wheat fields, and historic homes. The region's history is full of battle and strife. From the first clashes between European and Indigenous communities to the enslaved plantation workers, to the bloody battles of the Civil War. Hiking, history, and the vibrant greenery of the Shenandoah Valley collide at Cedar Creek.

Take a walk down the Morning Attack Trails for an active lesson in battle history. Educational markings and stone monuments turn these trails into a lesson in American history. Follow a Ranger through the park for a deep dive into the history of Shenandoah Valley and the Battle of Cedar Creek. If you're looking to cover more land and history, download the Civil War Trust's self-guided auto tour and explore the region by car.

The nearby Belle Grove Plantation Manor House was built in 1797 and is open to the public year round. Step inside the historic structure for a look into the lives of Major Isaac Hite and his wife Nelly Madison Hite. Teaching gardens, wheat fields, and an annual "Of Ale and History" Beer Fest make for year-round festivities.

This historic park's proximity to the Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River, and protected forests make it an ideal excursion. Scenic campgrounds and local lodgings abound, from cozy cabins and cottages to public campgrounds. A little dose of history is the perfect end to a weekend outdoors.
