Pre-civil war original log cabin with 2 bedrooms and 4 beds.  The Catlett family was deeded the entire valley as a homestead, and they built the log cabin.  Two of the Catlett family members I met were born in the house.  During the civil war the cabin was spared from the war due to the Catlett's hospitality.  It was recorded that Stonewall Jackson himself stayed in the cabin during a winter night troop movement.  Campers and friends often go metal detecting there, and have found quite interesting things, such as a flint lock, musket balls, and Indian marbles.  The walls and ceiling beams are original, but the kitchen extension was added in the 60s.  Other creature comforts have also been added such as AC, a fully stocked kitchen, a bathroom, wifi, and smart TV.  There is also catch and release fishing in stocked ponds on site.  The cabin accommodates up to 7.  Obviously this is not exactly camping, but if you have a party larger than that, someone can pitch a tent.  Access to the cabin is very simple.  There is a hidden lock box with keys to the two main doors.  The location of the lock box will be made available once it is booked.  The cabin is also pet friendly and gun friendly.  There is a firing range.  But no hunting.
