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. We have hosted parties up to 35. Please note that the campsite itself is available for rent in another listing ($35/night), so it is possible that there will be more than one guest there at a time, either renting the cabin, or other campers. All parties would be notified in case that happens.
