About Adventures on the Gorge

Nestled on the rim of the New River Gorge, this authentic timber frame home, Martha's Place, was inspired by Martha Gaines Wehrle.

Martha was born and raised in Fayette County, West Virginia. As a Congresswoman and Senator, her life's work included caring for and nurturing her home and its residents. Martha's Place was aptly named as it encompassed her strength, her natural beauty and grace, and her endless effort to protect all she loved about her home, West Virginia.

Martha's Place is located off the beaten path in Wild Rock, a community whose design guidelines call for the use of long-lifespan materials, such as local lumber and stone. Materials utilized in the construction of this vacation rental home.

To leave the lightest environmental footprint possible, Wild Rock also insists on the most efficient use of natural resources. Homes must be oriented in the New River Gorge National Park to take advantage of prevailing winds, sun angles and shade from surrounding vegetation. These home site practices help preserve the natural beauty of the New River Gorge and surrounding area.

Adventures on the Gorge purchased this house in 2008

Why Adventures on the Gorge chose Victor

Fayette County, West Virginia is home of the famed New River (one of America's National Heritage Rivers) and the New River Gorge Bridge (the longest steel arch bridge in the western hemisphere).

Martha's Place is centrally located in the New River Gorge National Park to give you access to hundreds of miles of trails, scenic overlooks, drives and diverse flora and fauna.

However, if adventure sports are more your game, Martha's Place is within walking distance to Adventures on the Gorge,

What makes this house unique

With Civil War-era historic sites and a quaint sophistication in dining and the arts, Martha's Place is centrally located to allow you and your family to enjoy almost any amenity you can dream, whether its an adventure, a day of golf, shopping or relaxing.

If you're looking for a vacation rental, Martha's Place is just for you. This timber frame home is centrally located to allow families and friends to bond with nature and the land she called home, West Virginia.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for letting us use Martha's Place as our home away from home this Christmas! Our families traveled down from PA, up from SC, and west from VA to meet here with few requisites: a view of the mountains, a cabin/lodge feel, and a fireplace. This place had everything and more (plus we had a white Christmas!) The house is obviously gorgeous and had ample space for our group of 7 adults and 2 kids, but we also loved the trail from the back door, the club house/bocce ball court, playground at AOTG, hot tub and surround sound (perfect for our Jingle Bells!) Present wrapping and ornament making took place on that awesome dining room table, and the coat hooks worked well for hanging all of our stockings. What a blessing to be able to use this place to make wonderful memories. Looking forward to returning in the future!

A beautiful home in a tremendous setting

  • 5 of 5

You will decompress walking in the front door of this perfectly amazing house. It is filled with class and charm. It is comfortable, relaxing and inspiring. They managed to make rustic luxurious. I highly recommend Martha's place for families, friends or work related get-aways. It is an unquestionable five star!

Near-Perfect Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Excellent place to get away from it all yet still be convenient. Beautiful house on a great lot overlooking the gorge. Views of the river below and the bridge in the distance. Sleep number beds are perfect for individual comfort and the heated floor downstairs is a nice touch. If you plan to do any serious cooking you may want to bring some of your own gear. All the basics are there, however. Just one minor maintenance item... the freezer in the kitchen was broken but there is a freezer downstairs in the laundry room. We found a note so management was already aware of the issue. The only disappointment is you can't build a fire in the fireplace inside. The outdoor fireplace is fine - just can't use the one inside.

AOTG is great - easy check-in/check-out. Clean, comfortable and quiet home. Will definitely rent again!

What a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The timber frame construction, and especially the beam work, is spectacular. Nicely finished. The kitchen cabinetry is unique and very well done. Views (even in summer) are great. Enjoyed the ready access to the Gorge trail system. Accommodated our group of four couples nicely. We will return. Thanks!

The New River Gorge State Park is home to one of the largest aerial adventure parks in the United States. Located at Adventures on the Gorge, TreeTops is a half-day adventure of zip lines, sky bridges and rappelling with three short hikes thrown in for good measure. While Gravity Zip Lines offers about two miles of zip lines 200 feet in the air. The newest addition, TimberTrek Aerial Adventure Park offers an aerial obstacle course for enthusiasts of all ages. It offers four courses to challenge beginners as well as more experienced climbers.

Of course, the New River and the Gauley River continue to offer rafting enthusiasts - from novices to experts - some of the best white water rafting adventures in the world.

Other activities include, ATV tours, mountain biking, bridge walk tours, caving, bass and fly fishing, disc golf, hiking, horseback riding, jet boats, lake tours, paint ball, rock climbing, skeet & trap shooting, and paddle boarding.

Then again, guests may want to enjoy a day of golf and/or shopping. Nearby attractions, such as Pipestem Resort State Park, Glade Springs, or the Greenbrier Resort offer a number of golf packages to meet your needs. While Tamarack has wares hand crafted by West Virginia artisans and Fayetteville has a number of quaint shops for enthusiasts to enjoy.

But if you love photography or just want to relax in a peaceful, tranquil environment just sit back and take in the views. New River Gorge State Park, Hawks Nest State Park, Babcock State Park and Pipe Stem Resort State Park provide some of the most beautiful flora and fauna seen on the Eastern Seaboard.
