Great location. Away from any crowds but close to everything.

The cabin was perfect for our family. Clean and loved the welcome cookies and glasses. The hot tub and firepit were great. The tucked away feel was awesome and we could not see another cabin around us. The location was perfect for our rafting trip with ACE, hiking around the New River area, and short drive to Summersville. We would definitely stay there again.

Had a wonderful time at the cabin. Everything was clean and the beds were comfortable. Would highly recommend to anyone staying near the New River. I would rent from them again, for sur.

Six women/friends came to El Gordo from Minneapolis/StPaul Minnesota-part of a book group that has been together (and friends!) for 24 years. We came to see the beautiful state of West Virginia and to attend a wedding. We had the best time!! Although we struggled to find the cabin, Anna was extremely helpful and responsive to our every need and, once arrived, El Gordo also met our every need too! It was clean, had every amenity, was warm and cozy. We enjoyed the hot tub and also the fireplace and comfortable living room. We explored the cute town of Fayetteville with its fun restaurants, stores and breweries. We also loved hiking along Pointe and the Endless Wall. All of us would come again. We loved El Gordo!!

Our group of two families really enjoyed our stay at El Gordo. The location is perfect for trying to do things around the Canyon Rim Visitor's Center. The bunk bed room was fantastic for the kids. The owners had homemade cookies for us at check in. When we would enjoy a fire at night, you couldn't hear anyone else around. The cabin was also extremely clean and the beds were comfortable. We really enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub at the end of a long day of hiking.

This is a great cabin-very clean and includes nice features such as the screened in porch/hot tub, fire pit, and grill. Excellent location as well-we enjoyed and would come back. Recommend!
