Tucked into the woods, on the edge of pasture land alongside a babbling creek, Whistle Pig Camping Cabin awaits you. Furnished with a cozy full size bed, dresser, chair, and electricity, this space is perfect for 1 or 2 people. An indoor bathroom (toilet, sink, shower) is a short distance away in our Lodge building and available to you at all hours. The Whistle Pig Cabin even has a coffee pot for your convenience. This space has heat and a fan for summer months. 

The Cabin sits along a little brook and has an outdoor area with chairs and a BBQ grill for your use. 

We are close to Grayson Highlands State Park, Mount Rogers, Stone Mountain and Doughton Park, all offering great hiking! The nearby New River offers canoeing, kayaking, tubing and fishing. Visit the quaint town of West Jefferson for shops, art galleries and restaurants.

Booked and immediately tried to cancel. Canceled within ten minutes of booking due to scheduling issues and was not able to get s refund. Did not actually stay here, so I will not comment on the site itself.

What a gem! Starting in the late 19th century, Healing Springs was a destination for prosperous sufferers from all sorts of ailments. The old spring is on the property, a few steps away from the Whistle Pig cabin. There are several roomier historic cabins on the property as well. This cabin is tiny, set on a hill along a stream. Inside is furnished with a comfortable full bed with linens and a quilt, towels, coffee pot and cups, heater, bedside table, and lamp. There are two electoral outlets; plumbing is across the lane in the cabin that houses the office. The bathroom there has toilet, sink, shower, and heater.
The proprietors farm chickens, pigs, and cows. You can buy fresh eggs and farm-grown meat in the office. Handmade soaps and jellies are for sale as well.
It's clear that the current owners love the place and give it their all. I slept great and chatted with a young family at the spring pump before heading out for a good meal in West Jefferson, a nearby historic tourist town. Whistle Pig cabin is a great find. If you're hiking in the area or driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, stay at Whistle Pig cabin for a great night's sleep and a bit of local history.

Chicks hanging out in the snack bar.The water from this pump is the famed healing water, good for what ails ya.Local jellies, body care items, meats, and eggs are for sale. These ladies are living well.
