A step back in time.

Oct 2-13, 2016. The history of this place is amazing. The setting is serene on the deck over the meandering river full of river rock and crystal clear water. This cabin was built in 1910. And, oh, if cabin walls could talk. My husband and I talked about what their lives were like, before the additions of the bathroom, laundry room, and electric stove. How they cooked over the open fireplace or a wood burning stove.

The bedroom downstairs is amazing. Very large with fireplace. Because of my business, I had to spend some time on the computer. I sat in the bedroom at the table in front of the large picture window, with computer, overlooking the river, working. Very relaxing.

We didn't need the upstairs bedrooms, but had to look. Another look into history! The stairs, though, are not for the elderly or very young children.

We were too early for fall colors, but we took some scenic drives to Seneca Rocks, Spruce Knob, Canaan Valley, and Blackwater Falls. Beautiful colors and amazing scenery. We also took the scenic 4 hour New Tygart Flyer rail to the high falls of the Cheat River. There was not a lot of fall color, but it was interesting, cool, very long tunnel, very good lunch buffet of salads and sandwiches, and dessert on return trip. I suggest that you go with the parlor car with seats opposite of the train station. Much more scenic. We switched with a couple on the return trip so they could get more of a view. Whatever side you are on is the same view when you return. The train does not make a loop. It goes there, puts the engine on the other end and you return on the same side that you came on.

The river is stocked with trout in the fall. They were stocking the river the morning we had to leave. I still had fun trying!

We were there when Hurricane Matthew was in Florida and could not get home. Tiffany was so kind in helping us extend our stay. She was also very attentive to any of our concerns. Thank you for letting us experience a piece of history and opening your home to us.

Fantastic Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the riverfront Log Cabin the week of August 15th to celebrate my younger son's birthday. It was a great quiet and relaxing getaway but still with plenty of things to do. Our Labs also enjoyed it immensely especially swimming in the river! We had some trouble figuring out the TV but Tiffany was very attentive and quick to fix the problem. Thank you for letting us stay in this wonderful cabin. I would love to come back again next year

A great location and extremely well-appointed rustic cabin with an ethos of comfort

  • 5 of 5

First, the cabin itself is rustic-historic, and at the same time spacious and well-appointed. The grounds are well maintained and very pleasing for all kinds of relaxation and recreation. We love the idiosyncratic oak floors, and the beauty of the beam ceilings and stone fire places. A family of six, even, would have plenty of space - not tripping all over each other. The deck over the river is perfect for casting a line; we caught plenty of small-mouth and rock bass even though we stayed in late August; trout were fairly scarce, but we caught a few keepers. There is also plenty to do in the area between Elkins and Historic Beverly to the west, and Seneca Rocks to the east. But between enjoying the river and fire-pit, and taking in the beautiful night sky from the hot tub, there isn't a need to leave. This is definitely one of the nicest cabins we've stayed in, in terms of the spaciousness and creature comforts. The water pressure is good and doesn't have a sulfury smell (something I often encounter in mountain rentals); and the mattress and pillows in the master bedroom were extremely comfortable (also not a given with vacation cabin rentals).

Our New Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and 2 children for the weekend. This place is awesome. Tiffany has thought of everything, right down to the little lamp on the table on the screened in porch for late night reading. We fished, kayaked and grilled out! We never felt crowded in the little cabin and had a great relaxing weekend! TONS of pots and pans, appliances and all kinds of amenities! Super clean and comfy beds! We can't wait to go back!

Wonderful riverfront "old timey" cabin with everything you need!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful week here with wife, sister in law & her husband along with our two dogs. Mountain riverfront without being way way out. This place had everything we needed for comfort and relaxation. Deck overlooking the river was great for just hanging out as well as doing lunches. Owner (Tiffany) was simply a pleasure to deal with throughout the booking as well as during our stay. While there is no A/C upstairs, we were quite comfortable at night with windows open and fans on. Fishing was iffy most of the week with crystal clear water, storm changed that and I actually got tired of catching smallmouth and huge rock bass!!!

Screened in porch with table was a great place to set up our week long stay jigsaw puzzle! Hammock in pavilion was put to use by several of us!

Hot tub was much appreciated after a long day on the river on tubes and in our kayaks!

We are looking forward to booking this place again!

Thanks for sharing Tiffany!

Do recommend a trip (~4 mi) to Smoke on the Water for their BBQ !!

Beautiful and charming

  • 5 of 5

We left this morning after a week in this wonderful cabin, and we will miss it! The location is gorgeous and central to tons of activities from train rides and festivals in Elkins to shopping in Thomas and hiking in Dolly Sods and Seneca Rocks. The cabin is full of charm and had everything you could need. The river was clean and was great for fishing in even such hot weather. We absolutely loved this cabin and hope to return to experience another season!
