This is a fantastic log cabin built in the 1700s and previously used as a stage coach in. Spend the day relaxing on the 30 acres or swimming and fishing on our two stocked rivers. The log cabin has incredible history associated with it. All visitors have signed the walls since the mid 1800s. There are two bedrooms downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs. There is one bathroom, washer/dryer, and all the modern amenities you need. Have fun exploring the neighboring area and stumble upon a 12 foot deep natural spring we fondly call the Blue Hole. Our 30 acres backs up to the George Washington National Forest, offering you countless hours of hiking and nature exploration
The experience was one of the most relaxing and peaceful experiences to re-charge. Wonderful house with a lot of history. Cannot wait to get back to this setting!! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your home.
My family and I were there in July 2016 for a week. The Cabin is wonderful, rustic and modern. The property so secluded but yet so nice to walk trails and visit the Blue Hole on daily basis (fishing and swimming) the kids had so much fun! I would recommend this place to everyone who wants to get away from all the rush of daily life to just go and relax and enjoy camp fires / making smores and to enjoy the nature.The owners were so easily to get in touch with although we had no reason too other than to ask a question. Keep in mind no cell service, but this was great not to be bothered for once. We look forward to going there again sometime soon in the future. P.S. even though you are out away from any city life, it not a far drive (nice scenic drive to the nearest city and or like us take a nice 3 1/2 hour to Virginia Beach for the day!!) Also very close to tons of Hiking trails and fishing holes.. Thank you again Patty for such a pleasant place....
We absolutely loved our stay and Miriam could not have been more accommodating. We were in a crunch as we were supposed to camp and the weather was freezing. We had plans to meet friends and were both traveling from far distances. Miriam got back to us immediately and helped to make sure we were able to get into the property at the last minute. The property is gorgeous and as is described. It was unique, comfy, and just a special little place.
We really enjoyed the opportunity to stay at such a historic and unusual property - dating back to 1700. It comes with a new annex containing a really well equipped kitchen and new bathroom. There is a gas grill and a fire pit outside for the chance to do some al-fresco cooking. The property would sleep 10 at a push - ideal for a large family or maybe even two families. The owner is very helpful and easy to deal with. The Inn is situated in lovely grounds with access to a couple of streams/rivers - ideal for fishing using the gear at the property. It really is out in the middle of nowhere - perfect for getting away from it all, enjoying the really clean air, and the lack of light pollution. The property has a few foibles e.g. the tap water tastes of sulphur but if you can live with it's rustic charm and don't expect all the mod-cons of a modern property then you will have a great time here. We did, and were sorry that we could not stay longer - our two boys especially did not want to go home. Thank you for allowing us to share your wonderful Coaching Inn
My family and I are campers, hikers, fishermen and woman we are use to roughing it, but the cabin was totally inexcusable we arrived. We had a good time because we always have a good time. Below is a copy of the letter I sent along when I returned the keys. It was ignored.

I am writing in case you do not know the condition your cabin is in. When we arrived we found piles of weeds around the cabin that someone had pulled a week or so earlier. The outside trash can was full and boxes and a bag of spray paint cans stacked around it. Inside the floors needed to be swept and moped. The dishwasher was full of dirty dishes and pans. Not a single bed was made, the well warn blankets and linen were in a sloppily folded pile on a trunk at the end of one of the beds. Our bath-towels were placed on TV trays outside the bathroom and we found articles of clothing mixed in with them . Upstairs the unmade beds were pushed around as if there was a fight up there. The fans and a TV were on the floor in the middle of the room. The amount of dirt, dust and dead bugs made my children decide to sleep on the floor downstairs (the mattresses up stairs smell bad). The window sills on both floor are filled with years of dead bugs. The screened porch had burnt out candles that look like they had been there for years, when we swept the floor we found broken glass with the dirt and dust . Under the beds downstairs we found pillows, shoes , and thick dust and dirt. All the fans had dog hair on them. In all honesty, we feel the cabin should not be rented to the public in such condition. It's a shame because the cabin has such charm .
After a 14 hour drive and the amount of money we paid, we felt insulted and cheated.
I loved the house. It was very old, which both my husband and I like. He loved looking at how the house was built, the wood used, structure, etc. Both my boys age 16 and 13 enjoyed being there. The oldness of the house was a bit spooky to my 13 year old, as it is very different than newly built construction, it's a bit secretive, very cool, steep stairs, things to see everywhere. I loved the decor. The house was fully equipped which was great-a bit more deep cleaning would be great, like on top of the mattresses and under the beds, for us it's not that big a deal but may be off putting to others! We ate out a lot actually at the general store up the street-great place for lunch, dinner to get gas and most anything else you would need.We rode our bikes to the store and walked on the property. We really wished to be able to see the Spring, but the water must have been too low. It was 3 feet max in any area. Everyone loved exploring the paths, finding crayfish and small trout swimming. The owner mentioned if we were quiet enough we would see deer on the screened porch and she was right! It was so beautiful to see, we saw them 3 times, plus 3 rabbits and the porch by the kitchen was a great place to sit and watch the hummingbirds. I really was able to relax and wish I was still there; the fire pit was nice to sit around and enjoy the serenity as well. The owner was of great help and I liked speaking with her a lot. A beautiful area, very secluded part of VA. We explored the area quite a bit in our vehicle and went to Bath, Head Waters and Lake Moomaw and a local pond about 8 minutes away, so much wildlife to see; deer are everywhere. So nice to have the kids away from their electronics. don't think they missed that at all. We all enjoyed some great old movies together each night in the living room. I would definitely return though it was quite far from us. We headed to Gettysburg from there and Hershey before heading home. It was our first long road trip with the kids.
