About the property

3+ Bedroom, 2 Bath With Mountain Views Next to Spruce Knob, Seneca & NelsonRocks

Play hard or just relax at this stunning secluded 200+acre retreat with unimpeded mountain views that's perfect for romantic getaways or family reunions. Located just below Spruce Knob and bordering the Monongahela National Forest, you'll be surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery on the East Coast. We have the largest rental property in the area with so much to explore on site that it's a destination in itself! Enjoy amazing wildlife out the window, explore and play in the woods and fields, or hike up to panoramic views along our privately-owned trail network - all right out the front door!

Our spacious house with all new furnishings has everything you need for a relaxing stay. We can accommodate a maximum of 8 adults and 2 children. Our king and queen bedrooms have handcrafted Amish furniture and super-soft designer linens, our den/third bedroom has a charming daybed that expands to a queen, and our basement bunk area has rustic bunk beds with down duvets. There is also a queen air bed for kids/extra guests. The master bath has a walk in shower and jacuzzi tub for relaxing after a long hike. Curl up with a good book or watch a movie in our cozy living room with gas fireplace and stunning mountain views. We have a well-equipped cook's kitchen (stainless pans, good knives!) with farm table for 10 and gas grill and patio set on the side deck. There's even a swingset and walkout basement for the kids to run around in, a ping pong table for rainy day distractions, and at night our firepit is perfect for ghost stories and s'mores.

Hop in the car for a scenic ride up to Spruce Knob, one of the highest points in the Mid-Atlantic with endless views. The Monongahela National Forest is our backyard - from a leisurely stroll around the top to an all-day trek, waterfalls, mossy forests, a mountain lake, and incredible scenery await your discovery!

Looking for adventure? A mountain biking paradise, we are minutes from two IMBA Epic rides at Spruce Knob and North Fork. Rock climbers are surrounded by some of the East Coast's best climbing at Seneca Rocks and the via ferrata at Nelson Rocks (and don't miss their new world-class zip line course)! Canoeing, kayaking, and swimming are available on the nearby North Fork. Naturalists will find interpretive displays, video presentations and guided nature walks at the Seneca Rocks Discovery Center just 15 miles down the road.

We're also a perfect place for catching your supper! Fisherman can troll for trout at Spruce Knob Lake or go fly fishing on Seneca Creek or the North Fork River, just down the road. Hunters are within minutes of various access points into the Monongahela National Forest.

Don't miss all the hiking, biking, sledding, and cross-country skiing at scenic Blackwater State Falls Park or the wild blueberries and cranberry bogs at the ecologically unique Dolly Sods Wilderness Area. Be sure to stop in for a little local craft shopping and a bite to eat at one of the many great spots in Thomas and Davis, WV - and catch a live bluegrass show at The Purple Fiddle!

Take the kids for minigolf, gemstone mining, and a cavern tour at nearby Seneca Caverns or Smoke Hole Caverns, or visit the Seneca Rocks Discovery Center with its menu of activities specifically geared to engage the natural curiosity of children. Try a horseback ride to the top of Seneca Rocks or, if you'd like to move a little faster, catch a historic train ride on the Cass Scenic or Durbin & Greenbrier railroads. Explore the mysteries of the universe at the kid-friendly Green Bank Telescope or just gazing up from our deck at the infinite number of stars in the darkest skies on the East Coast - the Milky Way is a regular visitor to our back yard!

In the winter, we are only 38 miles from downhill skiing at Canaan Valley/Timberline resorts and cross country skiing at White Grass Touring Center, and 55 miles from the Mid-Atlantic's best skiing at Snowshoe Mountain Resort.

Whether you want to get outdoors or relax with a good book, you'll find a perfect vacation at the Apple Tree Guest House!

NOTES: In addition to lodging costs, guests are required to leave a cleaning fee in cash or check at the time of departure ($90 for 1 bedroom used, $110 for 2-3 bedrooms, or $130 for whole house).
