This little hut is made from recycled materials and wood saplings.  It is surrounded by woods, quiet and peaceful.   It  is about a  six minute walk from your parking spot,  mostly level, slightly steep toward the end, please keep this in mind when deciding what to bring. We provide clean sheets, pillows and blanket. It has a two burner propane cooktop, basic cooking equipment, as well as cooking oil, some basic common condiments, teas and a pour over coffee set up.  I also provide a cooler with frozen jugs. . There is cold potable running water to the hut.  There is a fire pit with fire wood. The outhouse is close by and very private.  I live on the property and will respond to questions and concerns in a timely manner, I want you to have an enjoyable stay.

 It is 10 miles to the New River Trail State Park Fries trail head, with bike and kayak rentals. It is about  5 miles to public access to the New River and about 35 miles to Grayson Highlands State Park.    There are numerous opportunities for hearing Old Time and Bluegrass music in the area.

This was the perfect weekend getaway! The property, gardens, and the hut were beautiful. Patrick's craftsmanship can be seen throughout the hut and he made this hut perfectly. It was so peaceful and cozy. Patrick is also the man! He was the best host, making sure we had everything we needed and helping us set up for a relaxing trip. Would recommend this wonderful stay to everyone!

The hut at Ra Ridge was great. I am a female and stayed there alone and felt very safe. Patrick is beyond helpful and the hut has almost everything you need. Pack light! There is a bit of a walk, downhill on the way there, but all of the essentials are there- bring food, drinks (besides water, it’s there) and clothes. The fire pit is so nice and well constructed, it really makes this a great spot to camp even when it’s cold. There are two dogs that like to hang out and that made me feel even more comfortable, they were very sweet.
