Perfect riverfront getaway! Loved the hot tub!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was in a great secluded location. It had everything we needed and great views. We loved sitting in the hot tub and watching the snow fall and river flow by. We will come back for sure!!

Nice base of operations for a quiet getaway!

  • 3 of 5

Nice well kept cabin 15 feet from river! 3 Star rating. Management is attentive, even during the off season time that we were there. Very soothing place to hang out. Very nice deck facing the river. Hot tub is old and a bit noisy but enjoyable. Pump runs all the time so it is bothersome durning the evening. Beds were much better than usual and allowed a great nights sleep after the days activities.

Kitchen could use updated appliances. No internet and very spotty cell phone ATT coverage. Water pressure is quite low but serviceable, and the hot water has that West Virginia sulfur smell. Bring drinking water and all is ok.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. Our rural location as beautiful as it is creates challenges. Internet is now available for an additional fee, and must be arranged in advance. Our hot tubs may look old 'style'...but we use these on purpose. The only difference in old versus new types are the electronic control panels. Ours do not have visible control panels with touch screens/keys because it would take weeks to repair if they would stop working. Our property manager who is on premise 24/7, has the technical ability to make all repairs, and we keep on hand a full inventory of parts. We have 2 stage (hi-low) pumps on our hot tubs. They run on low 24/7, continuously filtering to keep the water clean so the the hot tub can be used anytime. Likewise with our appliances. We have learned that simple is best. Timers, self cleaning settings, and complex electronic control panels are not user friendly when a guest is not familiar with its operation. Additionally, any malfunctions are not able to be quickly repaired. Thank you for your patronage.

This cabin in the woods was the perfect place for my family! We really couldn't have asked for more. It was secluded enough we felt like we had full privacy, but also close enough to Elkins to make the short drive if we needed anything. Being directly on the river was the best part, and there is a nice sized deck and yard to hang out in. The biggest plus was it was clean!!! We only stayed for 2 nights and housekeeping even stopped after our first night to see if we wanted them to straighten up or need anything. Beautiful place, beautiful area, can't wait to come back!

Rained on our Parade

  • 3 of 5

I would have given the property 5 stars but the rating system asked about our stay not the property. The property was exactly what we were looking for but the rain, threat of floods and medical emergency were not. We had to cut our stay short, at no fault of the owners, but will try to reschedule another in the near future. I assume without the obstacles we faced it was the relaxing weekend we were looking for.

Awesome secluded riverfront location

  • 4 of 5

Cabin is rustic. Smells like backed up smoke and musty, but the location makes up for everything. Right on the banks of the Shaver's Fork. Take some lawn chairs, put them in the river and enjoy an ice cold adult beverage. No real fishing at this location, at least in July. River too low and no real holes. Tried spinning and fly rods and only caught chubs. May be better in the Spring if water is up and WVA stocks. The deck on house is awesome, has a huge hot tub built in. Great place to grill, eat meals, play scrabble and relax. Would highly recommend to all, but know going in the place is rustic. Hold the flusher down for a count of ten and the toilet will flush. Make sure the burners are pushed all the way in to get the stove top burners to all work. But again, couldn't ask for a more quiet, secluded spot. Living room furniture is comfortable and TV works fine if you have a rainy day. Owners brought out fresh towels and toilet paper every day. Bring paper towels and spices if you want them. Again, go if you like rustic cabins (we do!) and you'll love this place.
