About April "Dawn" Seay

Larry and I have been together since 1981 and married in 1984. We've owned a dog grooming shop for the past 25 years. We have two sons that love to come down there with us and bring their their friends to fish, hike and kayak or just hang out. We plan to retire on this lot, so we can continue to enjoy the great outdoors! Our sons are in college and heading to college. We are still traveling quite a bit. We don't have the time go to the cabin as much as we would like so we thought we'd try renting it as a vacation home.

April "Dawn" Seay purchased this cabin in 2007

Why April "Dawn" Seay chose Shenandoah Valley

We have always loved Craig Creek area. After many years of dreaming about owning a place on the creek, this lot came available at the right time for us. So in 2012 we built our garage and a large RV pad. Well, that turned into a temporary cabin and screen porch. We have plans to build our permanent retire home adjacent to the garage.

What makes this cabin unique

This tiny cabin took nearly two years to complete. It has 60 yr reclaimed beaded pine boards from a house in Blacksburg and another in Vinton. 80 yr old rough sawn tongue and groove doors from a cabin in Salem. 60 yr Metal cabinets from a home in Lynchburg. The bathroom vanity is an antique washstand refinished and converted. When hand building and designing this cabin I wanted to feel great when I was there and so all the special touches were done to create that atomosphere. We hope you'll feel the same.

Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

This property, is beautiful. The coziness of the property, the view. My husband and I needed to relax and get away! We stayed off our phones, and played the games they had there, cards on the screened in porch, looking out on the mountains and horses. Went for a hike on the Roaring Run furnace trail. Absolutely beautiful. We fell asleep on the swinging bed and woke up to a sunrise that made us just sit there in awe, making us forget how early it was. This place is wonderful.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a wonderfully romantic stay at Seay's Escape. We were looking for a relaxing, quiet, cozy place to spend a few days away from the city, and we struck gold! The cabin had everything we could have needed and more than we expected. We spent most of our visit on the large and extremely comfortable porch swing. The best part about the trip was the separation from society. We were able to enjoy eachother's company without any distractions from the outside world. We even went hiking! Roaring Run is an easy hike, took us about 2 hours at a leisurely pace, and it's only a 10 min. drive away.

Dawn was very accommodating and friendly.

We are already planning our next trip back!

A Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend at a serene place that offers everything a person could need for a weekend. The cabin was not quite like the pictures.. it was even better! The cabin was clean, well furnished and adorably decorated. I hope to steal some of those decorating ideas! The guest book was great at giving instructions on how to operate heat, air conditioner, etc. It also had great write-ups of places to visit near by and places to eat. Great hiking and great local country-cooking restaurants! We can't wait to go back in the spring when the fishing is good and the mountains change their colors to green! Plenty left to see in the area and would like some warmer weather to enjoy the wonderful screened in porch!
