Why Lannette Karnes chose Tallmansville

We built this house on family ground. Our grandparents grew up in this little piece of heaven. The cottage has every convenience and comfort. It is fully stocked for your pleasure. Isn't it time to make some memories for your family on the river?

What makes this cottage unique

At a large bend in the Buckhannon River, paradise awaits you. Enjoy morning walks up the railroad tracks, afternoons swimming in the river and evenings around the campfire. You can enjoy the rustic surroundings while having a luxurious home with satellite TV, WiFi and Jacuzzi tub when you are tired of 'roughing' it.

Relaxing and Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time coming to this property for our annual trip to West Virginia. We have always enjoyed our time here and everybody that comes says it is so relaxing and a comforting place to be. Just pack some food to cook and that is literally all you need. We visited the Ron Hinkle glass factory which was really cool and Ron himself gave us an in-depth demonstartion of how he makes his beautiful glass products. We also visited the Batton Hallow winery which was a delight. You can go and sightsee or just lounge around and enjoy the scenary at this fabulous house and all it has to offer.

We spent almost a week here in mid-January. The setting was gorgeous and the house was great. It had everything you would need/expect for an extended stay for a family. Tons of room, VERY clean + well appointed. We will definitely come back!!!

We have had many family cabin get togethers. I think everyone agreed this was the prettiest setting. And the house was well equipped and comfy. Great deck. Nice showers. I would recommend someone work on the refrigerator door--I think it sags or something.

Great place to get away and relax!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great getaway. Butch was a very nice and helpful guy. He was very knowledgeable about the local community. He stopped in after we arrived just to make sure everything was ok. The house was just right; it was clean and in good condition. Relaxing on the porch overlooking the river is just perfect! The whole area is very beautiful. We will most likely come back to this cabin again.
