Fern Creek Cabins @ New River Gorge White Water Hiking Hot Tub

Bedrooms Studio
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

One-Room Cabin with kitchen, living and sleeping areas. 1 full bath/shower stal

Conveniently located near popular area attractions and outdoor activities, Fern Creek Cabins offer in-season (Memorial Day Weekend through November),, affordable vacation lodging in the beautiful mountains of southern West Virginia. Our cabins sit on 40 private acres of pristine hemlock forrest near the north rim of the New River Gorge National River..

For those who just want to relax, Fern Creek Cabins offers plenty of space to roam about the property. Our cabins have comfortable porches equipped with grills and hot tubs, outdoor fire pits, and lots of beautiful yard space for throwing horseshoes or playing softball.

We welcome well behaved pet.

We ask our guests to not smoke in our cabins.

While our 2 cabin's share the peaceful seclusion of the Appalachians, it is but a few short miles over New River Gorge Bridge to downtown Fayetteville, named 'Coolest Small Town in America.' Come visit, and take a walk around. You’ll find a vibrant shopping district and fantastic restaurants, windows to browse with lots to buy, and a lovely town park.

'Endless Wall Trail' lies a mile around the corner which tours one of the wonders of the New River Gorge -- the unbroken cliffline known as the Endless Wall, which follows the rim of the gorge and offers access to dozens of bolted climbing routes. Breathtaking panoramas await hikers as the trail leads along the top of the cliffs through gnarled pines, mossy boulders, and rhododendron thickets.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Sorry it took so long but I would like to let you know how much Judy and I enjoyed our stay. It was actually the first "real" vacation I have taken since joining the Army in 1979. The location provided me peace and relaxation I forgot was possible. Depending on schedule and life's events, we plan to come stay there again some time.

Marion, your grounds keeper, was more than helpful. She worked to maintain the grounds like it was her own. Its hard these days to get good help that you don't have to watch out for or supervise all the time. She was "johnnie on the spot" everyday weedeating, mowing and making sure whatever we needed was taken care of. It was a most excellent vacation and adventure.

Again, had a fantastic, relaxing and rejuevenationg time. I hope to be able to use your cabins again in the future.

Thanks ever so much!

Great getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 2 nights following 4 days of a family trip to Washington, D.C. We wanted a quiet, relaxing getaway, on our way home from the city, and that is exactly what this place provided. It was clean, secluded & cozy. Our kids loved the bunk beds and hot tub. The kitchen was equipped for us to cook our own meals, which we did a few times. We LOVED reading through the guestbook on the coffee table. That's a fun idea, and we came away with some great places to eat in nearby Fayetteville because of the recommendations in the book.

My only caveat is the size of the shower/'s super small. We kept getting the floor wet because of how it was situated. And, this may be too much info, but the woman in our family could not shave her legs in this shower. That would be a deal-breaker for us in future properties. (I will ask in the future how large the shower is.) Just think you should know if that's important to you. :) Otherwise, a great property and location!

Wonderful cabin! Everything we needed. We relaxed in the hot tub, went zip linning and hiking the following day.

Played cards on the back deck (left some cards for the next family) and cooked on the grill.

Great location. Bit back there but super nice for privacy. The gps took us past the cabin, but a friendly hound dog led us back to the correct road and we were good to go. If you are looking to go to the activities around the New Gorge Bridge, this is the perfect place to stay!

Great area

Loved all the property where we could walk around. The fire pit was great and they provided the wood ( we took wood with us). Seen lots of deer. Had a great time. Would love to return for another visit in the future.
