Serenity from children

We have 4 kids and NONE were invited - happily. This place is a perfect 3-ish day getaway. No line of sight to any of the 3 other houses - quite far away in fact and the feel is that you have a mountain to yourself. Decent view of nearby mountains. Nice porch and even a hammock. The house itself is in great condition and the owners clearly try to keep it in good condition. (some slight plumbing leak and hammock a bit ripped, but it is early in season so light maintenance stuff will be found.) The bed and covers are of high quality and very comfortable for a lie around. The Dish TV is nice for a comfortable relax time. The family who owned the house was fantastic. They were available and concerned for you finding the place OK, yet not in the way whatsoever. Recommend you ask them to preheat the tub to 100 degrees. The heater is small and takes an hour to change 1 degree. So we never got in it. That was the one disappointment. But it is situated perfectly for seclusion and relaxation. If you are looking to getaway and want to bring some food and hideaway from the world. Strongly recommended. (Nearby Smoke Hole Canyon has a lot of great scenic picnic spots)

Great private getaway

What my wife and I saw as we entered into a private gate leading up to the cabin was spectacular! Breathtaking views, property very well cared for. We pulled into the driveway and walked up onto the beautiful deck surrounding the front of a gorgeous cabin. Amenities like hottub, horseshoe pit and private trail, made Foxes lair truly wonderful! Two bedroom, two bath is very accommodating, as well as the spacious kitchen and living area.This cabin us perfect for a romantic getaway or a small family retreat!

The drive in at night was tough but well worth it. Facilities were great, view was decent, and the cabin gave us a great launch point for a couple of hikes.

Beautiful pet friendly cabin.

This cabin was great for a week away with our pups. Perfect size for two people and two dogs. Plenty of room between the cabins. Trails and a dirt road to walk your pups for potty breaks when not out sight seeing and hiking in the national park. Would be nice if there were gates to block off the 2 openings off of the deck so the puppies can safely hang outside while we were enjoying the camp fire, grilling or relaxing. We would go back!

Roger Hall

Owner's reply:

Pam, Glad you had a great week away with your pups. Our other 3 cabins do have gated decks especially for the dogs. Perhaps when you come back, you can choose one - Owl's Nest or Bear's Den :)
Thanks Again,

Had a wonderful time this past weekend at the Fox's Lair, there were 4 of us in our party and it was very comfortable. Clean cabin, nice hot tub and the many, many stars which were amazing - seemed as though we could reach up and touch them. Lake at the bottom of the property is stocked with trout but we didn't get to fish it as we went to smoke hole. Beautiful country side and also a beautiful drive to the cabin. We will definitely be back, price point is great for the size of the cabin.

Fox Lair

The cabin was very nice, very clean upon arrival. My husband and I enjoyed ourseleves vry much!. Our dog, puggle, was very upset when it was time to go home...he loved the freedom of the are around the cabin and enjoyed exploring with us. The scenerary around here is just gorgeous. It takes your breath away. It was very peceful and the hammock was just an extra nicety that added to our stay. Literally you could sit and hear absolute silence for hours. (Just a woodpecker and some Owls) From parents of 3, it was appreciated! The hot tub on the property was nice and very comfortable. We used it each night. To our surpirse and luch our Jan weekend was close tot he 7o degree mark when the sun was out. The only things I would mention that dampened the trip, if at all, was the advertised bedroom satellite TV was not hooked up to any box and offered no reception. Definately would come back. Easy rental process, and I cannot say enough about the beautiful Lake around this vacation area. Just breathtaking. One of God's true works of art.

Roger Hall

Owner's reply:

Nicole- Glad to hear you had a nice weekend and got to relax. We appreciate your wonderful review and hope you come back soon.
Sorry you had trouble with the tv in the bedroom. It is hooked up to the box in the living room and is working (we checked to make sure). We know how sometimes it gets confusing on what buttons to push. Next time, just give us a call and hopefully we could talk you through it. It appears as if the people before you watched a video, so clicking the "input" button was all that was needed :)
Glad Puggle had a great time.

This property exceeded all of my expectations. It was clean and very well maintained. While we did not get a chance to take advantage of the hot tub due to the weather (the effects of Superstorm Sandy!) it was a very enjoyable and relaxing stay. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful, secluded cabin!

This cabin was so nice, comfy and with everything one could want. We could have stayed right there the whole week and been perfectly content. Such beautiful views, the landscaping was gorgeous, the 2 ponds on the property were very nice and we enjoyed using the hot tub while looking at all the beautiful stars - WOW what a nightly show! The hammock is a wonderful spot for reading or a great nap. Truly enjoyed the quiet and seeing the wildlife. We did go to many of the sites in and around the area, which are very much worth the drive. Seeing the beauty of God's creation all around is breathtaking. We plan to return, only next time we will get a larger cabin as we will be taking children and grandchildren with us. You will not be disappointed in your stay. It was nice not having a constant ringing phone. BTW cell reception is very spotty in the mountains, this can be a definite perk!!!

Thanks Sharon for your review and glad you had a great week. We look forward to your next stay at Eagle's Haven with the grandkids :).

This house was quaint and perfect for our needs...it was a GREAT size for 2 people, the hot tub was very relaxing AND with no cell signal, there were no interruptions to our quality time! You do have to do a little cleaning before you check out which, I thought, was a little much BUT it didn't take us too long...I would suggest either hiring a maid to do things like wipe down the sinks, counter tops and shower and vacuum OR make check-out later than 11 am....Overall a GREAT experience! Visit Smoke Hole Caverns while here...not too far away and a great local attraction...if you want to go a little further, drive to Seneca Rocks....

Roger Hall

Owner's reply:

Glad you had a great time and got to relax! We do appreciate our guests that assist us in keeping our cabins in tip top shape. We understand that most guests, like you, use common sense when checking out but our checkout procedures are written so that there isn't any misunderstanding. We do have a cleaning service come after every guest checks out to insure our cabins cleanliness. Look forward to your future visits with us :)

Weekend getaway

Perfect cabin for 2 couples! It was so cozy and very enjoyable. We loved the serenity and the peacefulness of the mountain. We took full advantage of the hot tub, it was amazing to sit and stare at the stars! We had a little problem with the water but the owners were so fast to get there and fix it and we never had a problem after that. It was nice to escape the world and relax for a long weekend. We will definitely try to make it back another time!

37th Wedding Anniversary

The home was great with all the necessary ammentities--Situated on 10 acres of mountaneous, forested countryside it helped create a relaxing and calming atmosphere. The heating was great but suffered a little from adequate humidity--Thus we woke up numerous times with dry throats and skin. This would not keep us from coming back. The host was graceous and very helpful getting us situated and acquainted with the property and what to do and not do--The guidelines in the house were also quite helpful--It took a little time to figure out the TV but we soon got the hang of it. We highly reccomend this vacation property to those who love quiet peacful getaways. Thank you.

Lovely stay at Owl's Nest

The property is immaculate and well stocked. We loved the gated back deck to sit out with our dog and enjoy the mornings and evenings. The proerty has a few nice trails to enjoy. Very secluded. We'd definitely consider another trip with friends.

A Little Piece of Heaven

This is the 2nd year my husband and I have stayed there. We liked the seclusion of the property, the quietness, and being so close to nature. We like visiting the ponds and the lake. We are especially happy that we can bring our dog, he is, after all, part of our family. The cottage is beautiful, clean and full of things to do like books, games, movies, and dish TV. My favorite is the hot tub! We also really enjoyed having a campfire. The owners also left a surprise bag that held s'mores in them - that was a nice touch! I recommend this site to everyone. Sincerely, Lee Marie Marsh

Nice little cabin

Overall we were pleased with the cabin during our stay. We have rented many cabins through the years (don't like hotels) and this was one of the best in having everything labeled (light switches, dish locations, etc.). It was clean on our arrival and had all the basic amenities needed for our stay. The cabin is a little small but for two people and a dog, it was fine. The only complaint was that there were way too many chemicals in the hot tub. It was so bad that when I opened the lid, it burned my eyes and caused me to cough; which made it unusable. As an FYI, the cabin is extremely remote to any stores or restaurants. Not a bad thing, but just be sure you have everything you need or you'll be driving a long way to get some ketchup for your burgers :-)

wonderful experience

What a wonderful place to get away. The cabin was very nicely decorated and supplied. My two dogs enjoyed the trails and the walks to the ponds. We saw a bear at the Inn but only a little lizzard at the cabin this time. My only request would be that check out be at least 11am.

Great family getaway

We stayed at the Fox's Lair cabin recently with our 2 children while they were on spring break. We had a great time exploring the surrounding area. The "hiking" trails from the cabins to the ponds are not really kid friendly, but we were able to hike the "roads" quite easily. We weren't sure how our kids would do on a trip such as this with a much slower pace than we're used to, but they quite enjoyed it. Spending time around the campfire in the evenings was priceless. We are hoping to go again in the fall! We definitely recommend these cabins and had a great time!

Wonderful Getaway

The Fox's Liar was a great vacation for my girlfriend and our two dogs to get away for awhile. It was exactly what we were looking for. The hot tub and the homey cabin was absoutly perfect and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get away for a bit.


Washington DC

Definitely recommend...lovely place

The cabin is lovely and well cared for and located in a great, beautiful, peaceful location. We were there in the winter which was great...the hot tub under the stars is perfect as is the long views through the bare trees. I would imagine though that the place is just as nice in the summer. We got caught in a snow storm and couldn't make it out the day we were supposed to and the owners very generously allowed us to stay an extra night for free. The whole experience was very nice. I would second that having a four-wheel drive to get in and out, even without snow, is a good idea.

Blythe Woods

Baltimore, MD USA

great weekend getaway

We had a great time at Fox's Lair, and greatly enjoyed our time around the property. While the weekend weather didn't allow us to cross country ski, we did several local hikes, visited the two ponds down below, played horseshoes & enjoyed the hot tub frequently. Just being able to sit outside & enjoy the quiet beauty of the area was therapeutic all by itself. Please be advised that if you are driving into the property, and it is winter time, or extremely wet, you might have better luck in a 4 wheel drive vehicle! We made it up & back without any issues, but added another adventurous aspect to the trip!! We would love to come back & spend even more time, and see more of the local nature sights.


Washington, DC USA

Unbelievable and Unforgettable

Our trip began by getting to the rental late in the evening, and enjoying the hot tub under the copse and the stars. By our awakening the following morning, we got to see the glorious view from the deck and the serenity of the secludedness of the cabin. It was a wonderful trip!

This lovely cabin is a great place for a couple or small family. It is very secluded and allows you to get away from the everyday craziness and RELAX. This cabin also has all the amenities that you could think of. We cooked on the grill for every meal and roasted some hot dogs in the campfire. There is a wonderful deck, hottub, horseshoe pits, satelite television, dvd player,and PS2 not to mention many sights and places to hike and fish nearby. This cabin is the perfect place for anyone looking to get away is has something for everyone. NOTE: Driveway for the Wildernest INN is in the middle of a sharp turn and can be overlooked very easily, If you leave the area of rough run turn around and you should spot it.

Great little cabin.

We have two dogs and this was a good place to stay for a week. Very quite and private. The cabin already has everything you would need already (movies, video games, wine glasses, grill stuff, coffee, sugar, etc), but no dishwasher. The pond is not a place to swim, mostly due to low water levels. Great canoeing, tubing, hiking nearby. The hiking paths near the cabin are not really "hiking". Very nice. We recommend it for two people. More than that would be tight. Great Mexican place to eat in Mooresfield (Stray Cat) near the Movie Theater. Pub in Petersburg is The Office. A handful of local farmers gather for a small farmer's market in the City Parking Lot in Petersburg on Wed 9AM-2PM in the summer. There is a gate you have to lock/unlock everytime you leave/return. Lake/state park right down the road for fishing/dog swimming (no human swimming). Closes stores (for food) are 15 minutes away in Petersburg. No cell phone reception! Which can be good!
