We stayed for a week in the "Suprise" cabin at Country road Cabins and enjoyed our stay immensely. Like all the cabins on the property it is named after rapids on the New and Gauley rivers. We were only 10 minutes from the gas station at Routes 10 and 19, and only 20 minutes from the New River Bridge and the town of Hico. Our log cabin was surrounded by woods, with no other houses or cabins in sight. The gravel road that runs through the property is well maintained, with signs to each of the cabins so that you do not get lost. We were late booking our cabin for the New River Birding and Nature Festival, and all of the smaller cabins were rented. Ours was a two bedroom - sleeps 6 easily, and 8 in a pinch. The log cabin looked like it had just been built, with a covered front porch and side porch - complete with rocking chairs and a hot tub. The full kitchen had new appliances and everything you could ever need to cook a full meal or heat up leftovers. The beds were comfortable - not the luxury pillow-tops you find at 5-star hotels, but comfortable, and we slept well. Both bedrooms had Queen beds. The downstairs bedroom was small, but the downstairs bathroom was nicely proportioned. The shower had lots of hot water. In keeping with ecological awareness - the shower did not have great water pressure - but it was sufficient to take a good shower. The furniture in the living room and dining room was nice - a cut above hotel/motel. It was a warm week, and we did not use the gas fireplace. The hot tub was cleaned between each guest visit and a boron dispenser floated in it to maintain cleanliness. I never ever use hot tubs, but this was so clean and well maintained that I felt comfortable using it. The cabin had both heat and air conditioning, and screens in all windows. Cable TV and DVD player were in the living room - we never turned them on. No Wi-Fi, and could not get a signal on 3G ipad - but IPhone had no problem with signal. We enjoyed hours sitting on our porch watching birds come and go, and an occasional deer. We could barely hear the traffic on Route 19 through the trees. We have already booked a weekend in a smaller cabin for this fall. We can't wait to go back. A couple of things to note - the cabin does not have daily housekeeping. If you stay longer than a day or so, you carry your trashbag to the dumpster at the entrance of the property when it is full. We never met the owners of the property - our key was left in our door, with a note to all guests at the check-in cabin. None of this detracted in any way from our stay - but its good to know what to expect.
