Shenandoah Valley Cabin
Situated on the eastern side of Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley at an altitude of approximately 3,300 feet, this 760 square foot cabin includes a 516 square foot deck and small screened porch.
Built in 2014 and 2015, the cabin is oriented northerly toward the valley with views of Massanutten Mountain, Skyline Drive, and the Appalachian Trail in Shenandoah National Park just minutes away.
The cabin has one private bedroom, a small loft and a sleeper sofa in the compact living room for different overnight options.
The dining area, living room, and kitchen share an open plan and the full bathroom connects to the dining area. The engineered bamboo flooring is rustic, durable, and sustainable.
A vaulted ceiling increases the sense of scale and complements the wide exhilarating views toward the valley.
Outside, behind the screened porch, is a utility room that houses water reclaimation particle and UV sterilization filters, liquid propane controls, and the electrical panel. When not in use, the gas grill resides in the utility room.
Beneath the deck there is an access door into the foundation’s crawlspace and plenty of room for outdoor storage.
Heating is provided by a liquid propane gas fireplace and two electric baseboard heaters: one in the bathroom and the second in the bedroom. Air conditioning is not used as cool summer breezes are adequate for the cabin’s small floorplan.
The exterior’s muted colors nestle the home into the mountainside and the interior’s pine siding recalls cabins of times gone by.
