We loved our visit to River's Edge!

  • 5 of 5

River's Edge had all the necessities our family needed and the warmth and comfort of a quaint, cozy cabin away from it all. The location is perfect for us, half-way between our family members in Ohio and Virginia and close to big stores if needed, but seemingly out in no-where land! Several DVDs were provided and I saw a satellite disk but we made it a No Electronics vacation and getting our Children and Grands away from TV, their "devices" and cell phones was awesome for all of us. (It was comforting having a land line in the event

of an emergency) Even with some rain, we took long walks in the safety of the "gated" camp, made nature crafts, played board games (many provided), and spent hours cooking and conversing around the open fire. Having fire wood provided was a huge benefit. It was so cool to get up early and take a bath in the big tub and open all the blinds to see the river, mountains and wildlife with no other people in site. Just listening to the sound of the river was so relaxing and couple that with mountains, trees, enormous rocks and solitude, made this the perfect get-away. Go...Enjoy...I highly doubt you will regret it. We're already looking forward to booking our next visit. Thank you, Dan for making this available to those of us without a cabin of our own. Now, I truly understand John Denver's

words in his song, "Take Me Home, Country Road"

Almost Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to stay for our family while we visited the Buckhannon area. Plenty of outdoor and indoor space. The river is awesome. Great price and excellent owners. This is the type of house you dream living in yourself - very quiet location! I would highly recommend this location to anyone. The home and property are very beautiful!

Lovely quiet cabin in the woods

  • 4 of 5

Loved the place. It was quaint with every nook and cranny decorated to a tee. Lots of seating options. Beautiful back deck and patio. Only negatives were the rough road getting to the cabin (but we had a truck so it was fine) and lack of air conditioning (but we had a very pleasant weekend without much heat so that was also fine).

Peaceful, scenic, secluded rustic charm. Sitting on the screened-in porch facing the woods is fairytale like - and then go to the back to watch the river. What more could you want?! And the home is lovely and has everything you need. We are repeat visitors for a reason!

Great Thanksgiving Getaway

  • 5 of 5

River’s Edge was exactly as advertised. We had a great four night stay. Everything we needed was there. The house is secluded and of course right on the river. Our kids and dog had a great time in the yard, along the road, and by the river. Highly recommended!

Beautiful, peaceful, tranquil

  • 4 of 5

The pictures do not do the river justice - it is beautiful. The setting is very peaceful and no one else was along the road while we were there, so it felt very private. The cabin interior was comfortable, fairly clean and appropriately stocked. A great getaway spot!
