Fabulous cabin

  • 5 of 5

Only stayed a short time but enough to realize this is a gem of a place. Very clean, a challenging task with wood beams and forested surroundings- not a cobweb or speck of dust-must have an amazing cleaner! Very comfortable and well equipped inside and out. Lots and lots of supplies provided and tons of extras you normally don't find in a rental. It was furnished and decorated very nicely for fall, definitely can tell the owner takes great pride in the property. SO close to the river, fantastic view and outside is ideal for relaxing and entertaining. It was cold when we were there , would have loved to have enjoyed the huge screen porch but enjoyed a fire inside instead and watched a movie from the generous selection. Imagine this place is spectacular in the summer and early fall. Don't hesitate, book this beauty, you won't be disappointed!

Lovely tranquil cabin on the river

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cabin is right on the river which is a very peaceful setting. Anything you need has been provided by the owner. She even adds extra touches of color for what ever season your stay is. We had pumpkin place mats and tea towels since we were here in October. Great fire pit with 6 seats around the fire and wood is provided. There is a wonderful hot tub as well. We will stay here again when we visit Elkins!

Excellent Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to leave a quick note here to say that our family absolutely loved our stay at the Riverfront Log cabin. We had my wife and I, 3 teenage boys, and 2 golden retrievers at the cabin for 3 nights at the end of August.

The cabin is a beautiful old cabin with modern amenities. The location was perfect. Being on the water is the best, but having Elkins only 10 minutes away for groceries and a few restaurants makes planning a trip down here super simple.

My kids loved fishing off the deck (we caught a few fish), hanging in the hot tub, the firepit for smore's, and the cool trap door that separates the upstairs from the downstairs in the cabin. Our dogs loved to run around and just generally be outside dogs next to the river for a few days. My wife and I loved the peace and tranquility of the river, the way the sunlight reflects off the water at sunset and sunrise, and the break from our everyday lives.

While at the cabin we visited Blackwater Falls (actually on the drive in), Seneca Rocks, Bickel Knob, and the Bowden Fish Hatchery. All were cool adventures. We ate breakfast and lunch at the cabin, but went to Elkins for dinner. Really enjoyed Smoke on the Water.

Long story short...Excellent cabin. We can't wait to visit again.

wonderful family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the cabin - enjoying the porch, deck, and hot tub, all overlooking the water. And we enjoyed the area too - taking a 4-hour train ride through the mountains, driving to see Blackwater Falls and having ice cream in nearby Davis, bbq dinners and music on the porch of nearby Smoke on the Water where our dog was welcome too, the small museum and tennis courts at Davis & Elkins College, coming home to make s'mores at the firepit along the river. We miss it already.
