    Floating Heaven is a treehouse site with a cabin. You can sleep in the small, zinc-roof-covered 'casita' or cabin, which can accommodate two adults and two (small) children. Or you can sleep on the deck platform in a hammock (we have one to rent), or a tent (bring your own or rent our 2- or 4-person tents). One platform is 10 x 10 ft. and the other is 10 x 12 ft. Eight trees pass through and support the platforms, situated 21 feet off the ground. A sturdy low-riser step leads you up (no climbing necessary). An acre of heavily forested trees and a meadow surround the site, which is not a primitive campground (i.e, far removed from civilization) but insulated from the town on the ex-urban perimeter. The term, floating heaven, refers to the tree-anchor bolts that allow the platforms to "float" when the tree canopies (60-80 feet tall) move in the wind.

    We'll get you going with some kindling and a few logs; lots of down branches and tree trunks on the property for making a nice bonfire, or you can use a small fire pit (e-stove) for a cozier setting. We have tables, chairs, a very slow drip-camp shower (unheated), a biodegradable commode (one just for urinating), and a full biodegradable unit on the ground. There is a charcoal grill for your use at no charge. There is also a 3-outlet outlet for charging up your phones or using other electric devices. Ours is an ex-urban location; you are just two miles from Virginia Tech (5 minutes from Starbucks, and Mexican. pulled-pork, fast food, subs, and Thai restaurants) but you are nestled under a nice hardwood canopy. Its the best of all possible worlds.

    1). Must arrive before sunset so we can show you around; after all, it is a treehouse and there are safety issues you should be apprised of.

    2). You will forfeit your reservation if you arrive after 8 p.m without prior approval.

    3). While 6 people is the maximum, the standard book rate includes 4 campers; additional campers over 12 years old should pay an extra $15 a person. Thus far, The Dyrt hasn't figured out how to pay for the fifth and sixth guests so be prepared to pay cash or via Venmo or Zelle.

    4). Parents must take care that their children obey the safety features. There are trails around the property that are nicely graded and gravel-covered.

    5). All electronics and loud conversation ends after 9 p.m.; sounds carry in the valley.

    6). We recycle: two wastebaskets exist for trash and another for recyclables (aluminum, glass, cardboard, plastic). Please carry wastebaskets up and leave on the driveway. We'll separate and dispose of them.

    7). A camping ethic to which we adhere is that you take out of the forest what you bring into it; be considerate. This is not a trailer park. Leave trash at the top of the driveway.

    1. Don't walk down to the site in flip-flops (to avoid falling on the gravel; it is steep in places)

    9.) We are proudly LGBTQ-friendly.

          Cana, Virginia

          'Possible Property' is exactly what it sounds like. Here, our family of six, has the beginnings of a freshly budding, 10+ acres homestead, surrounded by mature forest - maple, oak, birch, pine, and more - where anything is possible. We officially moved in on 01 July 2022 and already have established our rabbitry, heritage breed of chickens, and are currently working on building out an aviary for our home hatched quail. Feel free to come on down that way and take a look.

          We allow wild foraging on the untouched land. Apple trees, allegheny blackberries, black & yellow raspberries, ground strawberries, and many other medicinal and wild edible plants can be found for your enjoyment and - of course - within season.

          Here on 'Possible Property' we stress only a few key characteristics to life: We look for the GOODS. Good food, friends, and fun!
