This is NOT the Ritz, but it is an authentic, rustic & fantastically fun cabin in a peaceful, rural setting. It was easy to find using the directions we'd been sent when we booked and we were so happy when we first saw it: there was a family of deer out front and the cabin was dreamy. Inside we were...

The cabin was exactly what we were looking for, spacious, clean and extremely comfortable. Dave Sizemore was extremely patient with me and all of my multiple requests and no on-time payments. The location was perfectly situated next to a beautiful battlefield and the Gauley river/dam. I'm definitely going back!

We stayed in the Driftwood Cottage. It was nestled back in the woods away from any other people. It was romantic and great to get away for the weekend for a long hiking weekend and relaxation. The staff is very easy to work with. We enjoyed the cabin: it was very clean but smelt old and damp and was very...

This was our first trip to west Virginia, found the cabin on a Web search. We accidentally arrived a day early, Dan ,the manager was very accommodating. He let us in a day early, since the previous people had cancelled. We paid for that extra night, but for a reasonable price. The cabin is not fancy but has everything you...

Even though the beach area was closed the entire week because of the flood cleanup we still found plenty of activities to do, plenty of hiking, plenty of sightseeing, found a couple places to jump off the rocks in the Summersville lake, and even...

This was our 6th year staying at the Carnifex Ferry Cabins. They are perfect for our large familymof 32. We reserved 5 cabins and we had plenty of room. . These cabins are fully furnished, minus your toiletries. We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed a big Bon fire every night while we all gathered around. It's nice to have...

My new Wife and I booked a 2 day stay with Carnifex Ferry Cottages and we are very impressed. We stayed at the Mckinnley Cabin and we both were quite moved by the coziness and cleanliness. This 1800's cabin, complete with everything to make it modern and convenient was the icing on the Wedding Cake. We hope to be able...

We are 2 senior couples, and this was our first stay here. We normally stay in hotels when we travel, but decided it would be fun to be in the woods while the leaves were still on the trees. Our cabin (The Hughes), was very clean, comfortable, and well stocked. We ate most of our meals there and had everything...
