- english, Thai
About Property Manager/Owner
Sawadee ka! This is the way Thai people greet friends and guests. I am pleased to share with you this magical place in Rawley Springs, where I live with my American husband. I am a JMU grad in nursing and have lived in this country for 7 years. Moving from a frenetic city like Bangkok to this environment, filled with the overflowing spirit of nature, is a delight to me. I often travel back to Thailand to visit friends and family, but have loved traveling in this country, and seeing many of its special places, which gave me the idea to do Home Away myself. My wish? - To live in harmony and compassion with people and the planet. I wish to welcome persons from any race, religion or country to enjoy this special place. Welcome! Omi.

Enjoyed a couple nights here while attending JMU graduation events. Beautiful loft and relaxing setting. Thanks.
They cottage was very nice; had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
It would be difficult to imagine a more beautiful setting than this streamside cottage. See and hear the stream from the cottage. Hike in the Washington and Jefferson national Forrest just a few steps away. Wonderful remote quiet property.
Absolutely beautiful place to stay
Omi/ Eric loft was the perfect Christmas getaway! It was so romantic and they’re choice of design made for a cozy and comfortable retreat. They were super responsive and very nice... during our stay we had everything to make sure we were warm and comfortable (it snowed during our stay a little ). I would recommend this loft for any couple looking for a private, secluded getaway.
DIRECTIONS: IMPORTANT - The property is easily found, However, GPS is very often inaccurate in getting folks all the way to the house. Follow these simple directions and you will be fine: The Short Version: Turn onto Rawley Springs Rd from rt. 33 and travel 6/10 of a mile on the hard surface road. At this point don't follow the paved road over the bridge - rather, go straight onto the gravel road. Loft is the first building on your right. The Detailed Version: From Rt. 33 (Rawley Pike) turn onto Rawley Springs Rd (rt. 847) - coming from Harrisonburg this will be a left turn. Coming from West Virginia it will be a hairpin right turn. Faithfully follow the hard surface (paved) road over the bridge, around the curve and up the steep hill. Don't veer off right onto Gum Run Trail as you go up the hill. At 4/10 of a mile you will come to the top of the hill and see a sign next to a row of mailboxes that says "End of State Maintenance" - To your left you will a little stone spring house. Cliffside Trail is a gravel road that goes only to your left, but don't go up there. Just bear right, continuing to follow the same paved road for another 3/10 mile until you have traveled a total of 7/10ths of a mile. At 7/10the of a mile you will see a bridge with black steel railings on your right that crosses the stream with signs that says "Rabbits Foot Rd" and "Highlands of Rawley Springs." DON'T GO OVER THE BRIDGE ONTO RABBITS FOOT ROAD! Rather, go straight ahead leaving the hard surface road and going onto the gravel road - This is still Rawley Springs Rd. In a couple hundred yards the first building you see on your right is the very stream-side loft you are looking for. Pass the building, continuing on 100 feet and park on the right, directly in front of the big Craftsman style house. The house number (12140) is marked on a small wooden sign just to the right of the 2 car gravel parking space. Both the big house and guest house are grey with green trim and brown cedar shakes. Walk on the stone and paver pathway to the loft which will be on your right. Stairs are on on the back (stream) side - and you are home! Welcome!
