Better than we had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is wonderful. We are sincerely sad to leave. It's peaceful, simple and entirely accommodating. Our every need was anticipated. If you enjoy fishing you have to look no further. We a got up early...I hit the hot tub and my husband starting casting! We have already starting planning our next trip!

Great weekend escape.........

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, as we always do at the Rivers Edge cabin. We caught some fish and enjoyed the unseasonably warm weather. We really enjoy this cabin and plan to return next year.

My friends and I loved our stay in this comfy cabin - it had everything we wanted for a great weekend away with wood fires in the fireplace, a hot tub outside, the river right outside, and a fully equipped kitchen. Thanks!!

Beautiful cabin in the woods - a perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful cabin in the woods is a historic gem with lots of upgrades. The hot tub, full kitchen, two gorgeous stone fireplaces, and dog-friendly spaces welcomed us to the most relaxing long weekend we've had in ages. The property possesses a perfect feeling of seclusion, nestled away on its wooded lot, with a deck and yard overlooking a scenic river view. We spent hours in the mornings, sitting on the deck and enclosed porch, chatting with coffee, watching the autumn leaves settle on the water, and listening to the river babble by. In the afternoons, we availed ourselves of the many games the cabin had. At night, the crackling firepit was the scene of fabulous s'mores and a brilliant starscape that took our breath away. While you're in town, don't miss dinner at The Forks Inn. https://attheforks.com/; their smoked prime rib was outstanding and the cocktails did not disappoint. I could not have imagined a more perfect place to spend a few quiet days.

Do note: this is not a timeshare, and it is not a condo on a resort property. It is a proper home set in a very relaxing landscape. Plan to curl up with a good book, crackling fire, and warm blanket. We had one question during our stay - where to find the firewood - and a quick call to our hostess resulted in a delivery that evening of several rick worth! It is a testament to Mrs. Elliot how promptly she responded to our query and how warm and accommodating she was to us. Her home felt like our home. We cannot wait to return again!

A step back in time.

  • 5 of 5

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.
