Garland's Cabin

Recently renovated 100-year old rustic style cabin, overlooking a trout stream,
in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Floyd County, Virginia

About us

Garland's Cabin is one of the few remaining early homesteads in Floyd County, dating back to the late 1800's.  It has been completely renovated but retains it's original rustic charm.  It sits in the middle of 173 acre Christmas Tree Farm, situated in its own secluded valley, overlooking a private meadow and trout stream (Mira Fork Creek), where nature abounds.  Deer and wild turkey are frequently seen from the cabin's deck, along with local and migrating birds, which sweep down for a drink or dinner at the creek.  It is not unusual to frighten up a Ruffed Grouse on a hike through the woods.
Bring the kids and Fido and enjoy the many trails which wind through the farm.  Then hike up Strawberry Hill, where you will have a breathtaking view of the surrounding countryside and Buffalo Mountain.  In season, wild strawberries and blackberries are for the picking, and the cabin's kitchen contains all the utensils necessary to make a delicious cobbler.  Relaxing under the star studded sky and watching the shooting stars from the deck, will round out a perfect day.
