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.
