Visitors at Sunrise Cabin enjoy outstanding views from the front porch and warm, cozy evenings beside the stone fireplace. Sunrise cabin provides visitors with unique opportunity to enjoy the natural features of the George Washington & Jefferson National Forests while still having many of the conveniences of home.

The cabin was constructed in 1980 and offers many modern amenities such as electricity, kitchen appliances and showers. The property was acquired in an effort to help preserve the land around the beloved Virginia Highlands Horse Trail in southwest Virginia.

Natural Features:

The cabin features a large grassy lawn that meets a dense stand of pine and hardwoods. At an elevation of 2,500 feet, the front deck provides scenic mountain views of the Blue Ridge Highlands Region.

The cabin is located in the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area, a 200,000-acre stretch of land with two lakes, 50 miles of streams and multiple historic sites.


Recreation opportunities abound, with easy access to hiking, fishing, biking and canoeing. The cabin is right across from the Virginia Highlands Horse Trail, a 68-mile trail through mountains and valleys of the Appalachians.

The New River Trail State Park has been designated an official National Recreation Trail by the U. S. Department of the Interior. It is located less than 5 miles from the cabin and parallels 39 miles of the New River, which is one of the world's oldest rivers and among a handful of rivers flowing north.

In addition to hiking, biking and horseback riding, the park offers opportunities for anglers to fish for just about every major freshwater game fish in the state. While there are no designated swimming locations, tubing, canoeing and kayaking are all popular ways for visitors to get in and enjoy the river.


The modern, two-story house can accommodate up to eight people. It has three furnished bedrooms including one full bed and six twin beds, two bathrooms with bathtubs, a living room, dining room, and a fully equipped kitchen. There is a front porch and back patio with a built-in fireplace and picnic table. Limited dishes, pots and pans are included.

Electricity and hot water are provided, but the unit does not have air conditioning, a phone or television. Campers are expected to bring their own bed linens, pillows, towels, flashlight, food, dish detergent, laundry detergent, a first aid kit and trash bags. For outside enjoyment, visitors can bring lawn furniture, firewood for the fireplace and charcoal for the grill.
