Tony and Wanda Matthews
Why Tony and Wanda Matthews chose Rocky Gap
We bought this property in the winter of 2014, after looking at a lot of properties in every county of southwest VA. This property was love at first sight and there was no need to look any further. As a family, we have spent the last year renovating two cabins all the while trying to keep the authenticity. We also decided as a family that this place was too beautiful to keep to ourselves. The reason we have decided to rent to couples only is to hopefully help strengthen the family unit. Sometimes we get carried away with everyday life and tend to make our spouse an afterthought. This getaway will allow you and your spouse to set aside the daily distractions of life and concentrate on your relationship — and rediscover what drew you together in the first place.

Look no further! If you are a couple looking for a charming, clean, private location to spend some down time together, you seriously will find it here! I can't think of one single thing that this rental lacks. It is private yet within very convenient proximity to restaurants, grocery stores and the interstate. It has cable, two fireplaces, (one in the bedroom!) 2 fire pit locations on the property, central AC and heat, an updated kitchen and bathroom, comfy furniture, an overall "country" vibe, and an absolutely wonderful host in Wanda! I mean, we're really picky about the cabins that we stay in - we travel to & stay in many throughout the year in various locations, mostly in the Blue Ridge mountains of NC - and in fact I hesitate to rent using VRBO or Airbnb, preferring instead to rely on the cabin options offered by bigger management companies because of their stringent standards, but this cabin met & exceeded all my expectations and is exactly how it looks in the pictures. Our host Wanda went out of her way to make us feel welcome & comfortable; she knew that my boyfriend was having some back issues, and was kind enough to make sure that the fire pit - one of his absolute requirements and favorite things! - was well-prepared with wood when we got there so he didn't have to work so hard to get the fire going and haul wood from the wood pile. She was also very responsive about the rental from our initial contact through the end of our stay, & even allowed us check in early because we had such a short time to be there. Overall, this cabin had absolutely everything we were looking for, and if you're like us and prefer very private locations with access to modern conveniences like cable, restaurants, etc., this place is a home run. You will not be disappointed staying here and though I hope Wanda's cabin becomes a VRBO favorite and she gets tons of bookings, I also hope she will have availability the next time we want to come visit because that is definitely something we will be doing!
We were so absolutely pleased with our stay here! It was so serene and a dream come true. Everything was clean and orderly, the bed was very comfortable, and the entertainment here is well thought out. There are puzzles, books, dvds and a cable tv. No wi-fi here which we saw as an absolute blessing, as we could disconnect and unwind. We only stayed one night and we dreaded leaving in the morning because we wanted to sit outside on the screened-in porch forever. The location is so secluded but also very close to Bluefield, WV which has everything you’d ever need. After the first 10 minutes of being here, we were talking about booking again for a long weekend very soon. We highly HIGHLY recommend this place for couples in all walks of life!!! We can’t wait for our next stay here. Please don’t pass this place up if it is available!
Perfect couples get-away
The owners did a wonderful job remodeling the cabin. If you’re looking for a secluded get-away, this is a wonderful place to stay to get off the grid for a while. The bed was comfortable, loved the claw foot tub, enjoyed fishing in the pond in the back, grilling out, and sitting on the screened in porch reading. Thanks for a lovey honeymoon spot!
Memorial Day weekend away
My husband and I were looking for a secluded cabin that would give us time
To not only rest but a place we could enjoy the outdoors. This cabin was beautifully kept. It was secluded. The property included a creek and a pond as well. It was just what we needed. We will most definitely go back if a trip to the VA Mountains are in our future!
This is an amazing property. It had everything you could want on all fronts. A perfect kitchen, the makings for s’mores waiting, nothing but quiet and the sound of the birds. Close to Bluefield, so we enjoyed dinner two nights and also enjoyed music at The Rail Yard on Saturday evening. I couldn’t think of one thing I would change. Wanda was wonderful, checking in on our arrival day. I’ll definitely be back!!
Lovely renovated, clean and cozy cabin with a very friendly and accommodating host.
Arrived to a clean and cozy cabin. It was easy to get to but still secluded. The cabin has been renovated to included every comfort you need. The host was very kind. We very much enjoyed our stay.
Rocky Gap is an unincorporated community that is located in Bland County in the U.S. state of Virginia. Our location is rural yet close access to interstate 77. We are on the border of VA and WVA which gives you the options of exploring the beauty of both states.
