My family and I stayed here overnight as a stop over of a longer road trip. The cabin was beautiful, with a lovely view of the mountains and the Potomac river. I was told the fishing was excellent as the river is stocked. The cabin itself was very clean and nicely decorated in a style properly suited to a cabin. The hosts were gracious and inviting. The drive in and out was stunning and the West Virginia hwys were well maintained. The location did not show up on my GPS but I just picked a nearby street that did map.
This was our first trip to West Virginia and we were fortunate enough to find this cabin on Flipkey.com the cabin is very clean and well maintained. We loved the interior of the cabin and all the bear decorations throughout the cabin. The beds and furniture were very comfortable and the kitchen had all that you need for your stay. Rhona and Hap were very helpful with giving us ideas of what to do in the area along with helpful directions. This was a perfect get away from it all vacation for my wife and I, We would get up in the morning and eat breakfast and then get in the car and just drive around admiring the views of the mountains and the fall foliage. We would laugh when our GPS and phones would lose service and we would get lost but eventually finding our way back. I was really appreciative of the friendliness and kindness of all the people we met on our travels who took time to talk to us and give us some of their favorite things to do in the area or just talk about life a little. We visited Blackwater Falls, Senaca Caverns, Smoke Hole Caverns, Spruce Knob and did some fishing at Spruce Knob Lake and South Mill Creek Lake and we would recommend these areas if you are planning to visit. This area is perfect to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and is very laid back and all of the sites require a lot of driving to get to but is well worth the trip when you get there!! If you plan on staying here make sure to book this cabin for your stay you will not be disappointed. I would like to thank Rhona and Hap for all you did for us and making our stay stress free you are the greatest sorry I didn't get to see you guys before I left but hope to see you again in the future. Take care of yourselves and thank you for everything Vince and Lori Suzadail Coaldale,PA
A great place to get away from all the stress and unwind in the midst of awesome scenery which only West Virginia can provide. The cabin has everything you could want - a fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning (yea in 90 degree summer weather!), WiFi and a fabulous back porch with eating area, rocking chairs and a breathtaking view. Fifteen minutes away is Franklin where you can stock up on provisions and eat at local restaurants if you're not into cooking. Rhona was very helpful with all my questions and directions for this city girl. The cabin is immaculately clean and maintained and beautifully decorated. Definitely worth those few extra miles to get away from the chaos and crowds!
When we arrived the cabin was warm and cozy, it was snowing and low 20's. It is a cute cabin, the bear décor fit perfectly. everything is just as pictured in the listing, however it does not do justice to the actual look and feel. It is by far a great place to get away from the hustle and stress of work and everything. Sitting on the couch and watching the sun come up in the huge window is incredible.
The Hosts Rhona and her husband are great to stay in touch and answered any questions we had. I have to say that I can not thank them enough for helping us out one morning. We forgot syrup for breakfast. I reached out and within minutes a gentleman knocked on the door with a jug of syrup.. You cant get any better than that. We were going to build a fire in the pit outside and ended up just curling up in a blanket on the porch and watched it snow..
Life is Good there!
We plan to go back when the weather is warmer and do some hiking and canoeing in the area.
We stayed in the cabin for a few days and absolutely loved it. Every detail was thought of - couldn't ask for more. We just loved the decor and felt so at home. The cabin was impeccably clean! This was the perfect home away from home. While there we toured Smokehole Caverns, took a drive to Snowshoe Resort and checked out Blackwater Falls. I have to say, one of my favorite drives was out Smokehole Road as suggested by Hap - it was so beautiful- well worth the extra few minutes. Should we find ourselves back in this neck of the woods, we will definitely book here again! We enjoyed every minute!
