Little Mountain Retreat is a custom log home completed in 2008 and located 'just a few miles from everything'.
Enjoy the solitude and relax by the fireplace in this 3 bedroom/2 bath log home. Grill steaks on the backporch or gather by the fire pit in the back yard and roast hotdogs and marshmellows. Pocahontas County is 'nature's mountain playground' and outdoor activities abound. Nearby the Greenbrier River offers canoeing, kayaking, swimming, and fishing while the Greenbrier River Trail is designated for biking, hiking, horseback riding and XC skiing. Watoga State Park also borders the Greenbrier river.
The surrounding National Forest and state lands offer excellent hunting, fishing and camping.
Second time we've stayed here. Cabin is perfect for our needs - well equipped, comfortable and good location. Recommend it highly!
My family and my best friend and her family rented this cabin in July of 2014. What a relaxing time of fellowship and re-creation. It is a hidden gem in Pocahontas County, WV where I was privileged to spend ten years of my childhood. The cabin was clean, spacious, and the kitchen was well-equipped for the cooks. Close by attractions include Cass scenic railroad (where you can step back in history to the era of steam powered engines), hiking, restaurants that offer country cooking, Watoga state park, and Droop mountain Battlefield. The cabin also had a horseshoe pit, and a fire pit. We entertained six youngins' between the two families, and there is only one word for this place... perfect!!!
The cabin is absolutely beautiful, beautifully decorated and spacious. All through our 3 day stay, the shower would run hot and cold. The last night of our stay, we, a family of 7, did not have hot water or toilet paper. If I wanted to do primitive camping, we would have gone to a primitive campsite. I do need to say that the manager did come to fix the water situation, but we had to buy additional tp at the store. Stay here at your own discretion.
This cabin is adorable and has all the comforts of home. Very comfortable and easily accessed. We arriived to over a foot of snow but the roads were clear and travel was not a problem. It is near the road but still feels remote without the difficult travel for a remote spot. We loved it and are thinking about visiting again next Fall.
My extended family (4 adults, 2 children, 2 dogs) just spent a long Thanksgiving weekend at the cabin. It was terrific! I am the pickiest person I know about cleanliness, and this cabin was close to immaculate. I really appreciate the time and effort spent on cleaning - I felt so comfortable and at home using everything because it appeared to have been cleaned really well. Next, there were so many extras that just made the stay a pleasure: bubble bath for the soaking tub, garbage bags, a portable hammock for the yard, sleds that unfortunately we couldn't use (not enough snow), firewood, and more. The owners/managers obviously thought through what people would need and might not know or remember to bring, and there it was. Also, the cabin itself is really well made - unbelievably warm and well insulated, designed beautifully, nice appliances and cute details like the bear climbing the pole, and map of WV on the fireplace and the river rock soap dishes in the shower; a real "upsdcale rustic" experience. The location was terrific but we needed more time; we only made it to the waterfalls but they were well worth the drive from Atlanta - spectacular, and beautiful woods with patches on snow everywhere. All in all, a terrific place to stay and minimal driving distance to tons of outdoor activities.
A few issues that didn't affect our enjoyment but should be mentioned in a complete review: lots of dead flies on the windowsills (no big deal, this is nature). Not really enough comfortable seating for 6 people in the living room. Also, the cabin in on a sort-of main road. We were there in the offseason and saw maybe one car per hour, but it might bother someone who wants to feel completely isolated.
Thanks to the owners/managers for providing this super place to stay in a BEAUTIFUL, special part of the USA. West Virginia really is almost heaven.
We had an amazing vacation to probably the most beautiful area of West Virginia! We found the cabin fully furnished, immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, and in a wonderful location! It was spacious,well equipped, cozy, and accessible to many wonderful parks, water falls, historical towns, plenty of breathtaking rides in the country, and our little dog loved the big yard to run around in. The owner gave excellent directions, and he was helpful in filling us in on where to buy grocries, and available
if we should need him.
