The Loft

Harpers Ferry Cabins – Rental near Harpers Ferry, West Virginia

Cabin Camping Rental near Harpers Ferry, West Virginia

Looking for a unique cabin rental? Located 3 miles east of Harpers Ferry National Park in West Virginia, the Loft is perfect cabin lodging for exploring the scenic and stunning tri-state area where two rivers and three states meet. Four National Parks and trails (including the Appalachian Trail and Antietam National Battlefield) are located within twenty-five minutes of this cabin location.

Built over a small stream in 1972, River & Trail’s original Knoxville location has been repurposed to provide a novel “cabin camping” experience with certain creature comforts in an alternative setting.

Set up on a hill above our historic whitewater tubing check-in site, small groups can take advantage of the convenient location for this adventure, or opt for rafting, mellow tubing, and kayaking and canoeing trips within 15 minutes. 

All Loft rentals come with a 10% discount on all River & Trail Outfitters adventures.*
