Group Getaway at the Forest Cabin

Nothing is quite so life-giving as a weekend away with good friends. Late night bonfires. Hikes through the forest. Zip-ling through the trees. And making meals together in the kitchen while the fireplace is crackling.

We've reserved a few select weekends at our Forest Cabin in Head Waters, VA for self-guided retreats. The Forest Cabin sleeps up to 10 people, which is perfect for a girls getaway or a small Wild + Free group gathering.

The Forest Cabin can be booked at other times, but these special weekends occupy the best dates and include amenities you can't get any other time.

The Amenities

For the all-inclusive price of $999 (plus taxes and fees), you can enjoy a self-guided retreat for up to 10 guests* and enjoy the following amenities:

  • Three-day / two night-stay from Friday to Sunday
  • Two hours of zip-lining on Saturday
  • Bonfire and s'mores on Saturday night
  • Cider and donuts waiting at the fire tower
  • Ready-to-bake cinnamon rolls for the morning
  • Wild + Free goodie bag for each guest

* Any combo works - 10 mamas for $100 per person, two families up to 10 people for $500 per family, or other (8 people for $125 per person, etc.)

The Forest Cabin

Built in the 1800s but expanded into a spacious retreat, the Forest Cabin fills you with warmth and history from the moment you step inside.

This is a place to relax, be in nature, disconnect with the outside world, and connect with those you love. You'll find beds for up to 10, four full baths, and a cozy respite that is larger than it appears from the outside.

The trails will lead you to another place in time, and the mountain views  will take your breath away. We can't wait for you to experience it!
