We both grew up in northern Virginia and remember when most of the area had more trees, farms and was a little quieter. This cabin was a getaway we fell in love with almost ten years ago. We outgrew our " Phabin" and purchased another cabin to fit our needs a few miles away. We would look forward to sharing the beauty of " wild and wonderful" with our fellow DC metro area people. We love our weekend get away and hope you will enjoy our cabin as much as we have through the years.

Four of us had a great time at the cabin for the weekend! Kristen gave us clear driving directions, and it was an easy drive from DC on a Friday evening. The cabin is nestled in the GW national forest, though there are some neighbors along the same road so you're not completely isolated. It looks just as it does in the pictures, and it was clean and more than spacious enough for 4 people. It was definitely chilly (it snowed our second night!) and the only one problem we did run into was that it took us a while to figure out how to get the fireplace to work so that it wasn't filling the cabin with smoke every time we opened the fireplace door. Once we did get it to work (after contacting Kristen, who tried her best to help us via text) it kept the cabin very warm. I might recommend leaving written directions for how to work the fireplace - I think the key is getting it hot enough to create a draft going that will pull the smoke up the chimney.
The kitchen is well equipt, and we had a nice time cooking a friends-giving meal. There's lots of hiking options nearby, and while we didn't get to explore the town much, we definitely would have liked to had we had the time. If you are coming in the fall or winter I'd recommend bringing an extra blanket or two (as Kristin told us!). Overall, we had a lovely time and it was an easy getaway from DC for the weekend!
This little cabin is tucked away in a great location and was a perfect place for me and my boyfriend to get away with our dog for the weekend. We were close enough to anything we needed to get to, but far enough away to feel like an escape. It took less than 2.5 hrs from Northwest DC! It was freezing - no central heat and I am a city girl who isn't all that great at getting fires stated, but that made it all the more of an adventure. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed and we wished we could have stayed longer.
