Overview

Photos and Description of the Elkins vacation house rental

House, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, Porch and Gameroom, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10 in Beds)

Vacation at this gorgeous property offered by All Get Out Vacation Rentals!

The property has exclusive river beach access to the Shavers fork river and is engulfed in trees, on one side adjacent to 30+ acres of privately-owned undeveloped and open fields, 100 yards from two other cabins on the other side, and situated just 0.1 mile down the road from the one-million acre Monongahela National Forest.

Granite countertops; marble, tile, and wood floors; hot tub; spacious decks; master suite with Jacuzzi; 2nd bath with Jacuzzi; laundry; open kitchen and modern appliances; screened porch with gas grill (under roof cover); fine furnishings throughout.

Great set-up for telecommuting if you can only manage a working vacation. Wireless satellite internet (with download limits), speakerphone, computer desk, and office chair in the very private sunroom.

The house features a stone fireplace, teak floors, vaulted ceilings, natural wood-plank paneling, wireless internet, 3 televisions with DVD players, and a 6 person hot tub. The gameroom includes a 32' flatscreen TV, Wii entertainment system (games available), assorted board games, Hot Wheels track, toddler puzzles, cards, and 100's of other toys and games. The gameroom has a card table and chairs, dart board, and water toys for the river. There are 30+ classic DVDs for various ages available for viewing.

There are beds to sleep 10 plus (1) twin pullout and (1) futon: Main-level MBR – Queen; Sunroom attached to MBR – Twin Pull-out (ideal for child); Sleeping Loft – Full; Downstairs Bedroom #1 – Queen; Downstairs Bedroom #2 - Full / Twin bunk-bed plus Twin trundle; Game room - Full futon.

For a cozy winter, fall or early spring visit, the house has a forced-air gas furnace, supplemental baseboard heat in downstairs bedrooms, and a wood-burning fireplace in the living room (a moderate amount of firewood is provided).

In winter months, be prepared for snowy road conditions by driving a 4WD or suitable vehicle. The cabin is remote, so its narrow mountain road can be concerning to those not experienced. The gravel road is not suitable for motorcycles.

Pet friendly -- dogs only please, and no more than two dogs per reservation.

Owners provide a starter quantity of paper products, bathroom soap, and laundry/dish detergent. Personal toiletries are to be provided by Guests.

Cleaning fee covers laundry, dusting, vacuuming, mopping, bathroom/kitchen sanitizing, and garbage removal. Guests are expected to otherwise leave the house in the condition they found it.

We want to ensure that this property is the right fit for you! This is our vacation home that we are sharing – we are not a resort with a maintenance, concierge, and cleaning staff – and our prices reflect that limitation. That said we have put together as many resources as possible to help you plan your trip and enjoy your stay as if it were your own vacation home. We also have tried to stock the house so that you would not want for much upon your arrival.

If you are looking for a remote mountain getaway and are willing to roll with what comes from a country vacation, you will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful spot! Here are some things you should know...

In winter months, be prepared for snowy and/or icy road conditions by driving a 4WD or suitable vehicle. Note that we are now requiring 4WD for winter rental. Having chains for your car in the trunk is another good option. It's advisable whenever driving in wintry conditions in the mountains of WV as the roads are often hazardous. At times the snow can be deep and it takes 24-48 hours before it is plowed, therefore you should be prepared to be flexible about travel.

The cabin is remote, so even in clear weather its narrow mountain gravel road can be concerning to those not experienced. Depending on whether the road crew has done repairs recently there may be potholes. In most cases you can drive around them, but there may be a few on the way that you’ll just need to slowly drive through. There are also no guardrails on the road, but it has several turnouts to allow cars to pass. The gravel is not suitable for street motorcycles.

Because the house is surrounded by forests and the river there is plenty of nature to enjoy, but also to endure. Mice will occasionally come inside, and although we set out-of-sight humane traps to keep them from settling in, there is a possibility that you will see them during your stay depending on whether they've found a food source recently (it could be from a prior guest -- not your own doing.) We do, however, check to make sure that the kitchen implements are sanitary at the beginning of your stay.

The bug situation is that we are at a high enough elevation to not have a mosquito problem, but there will be gnats in the field, and moths at night wanting to get into the house. There will also be plenty of dead bugs that wedge themselves between the screens and the windows, and cobwebs sprouting up here and there.

If these aspects of nature are acceptable to you, then you will find a beautiful place of nature in which to relax and enjoy your vacation!
