The Dogwood Luxury Cabins property near Hico is the site of a Civil War Encampment known as “Camp Dogwood,” with Generals Floyd and Wise in charge of protecting the area.  The driveway is part of the “James River & Kanawha Turnpike,” that connected Virginia with the western territories.

The luxury cabins are within six miles of the New River Gorge Bridge, within twelve miles of the major rafting companies and the new Boy Scout property in Mt. Hope.  Historic Fayetteville, one of America’s top ten coolest towns, is only seven miles from the vacation cabins.  Outdoor and Cultural activities in the immediate area are:
