The Loft - Primitive Cabin 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 location is perfect 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 location.

Built over a small stream in 1972, River & Trail’s original Knoxville location has been repurposed to provide a novel “camping in a cabin” 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.
