The Hidden River Cabin is completely secluded, right on the river and includes off-grid solar lighting and ventilation. The Cabin also includes a vintage table and two twin mattresses (wrapped in plastic and covered with a 10 mil tarp) upon which to lay your sleeping bags. While the Cabin is designed for two, the cabin grounds also include a limited number of spacious riverside tent camping sites for family and/or guests only. The tent campsites are located under a thick canopy of native Virginia trees, incl Black Walnut, Paw-paw, Sycamore, Sassafras, Black Gum, Chickasaw Plum and a number of berry producing species, including edible wild blackberries. Be advised, there is no "plug-in" electricity, no plumbing and no toilets. Cell phone calling is spotty, WiFi is non-existent, 4gLTE is usually not available, but word texting works just fine. We are very proud and pleased to inform our potential guests that the entire Hidden River Camping area has been declared a Certified Wildlife Habitat and registered as a Designated Monarch Butterfly Waystation Come enjoy our secluded paradise!
