Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Alpine Cottage.

It definitely ranks as one of the best work trips ever!

I was amazed at the abundance of wild life and how much the temperature varied from just down in Kingwood at Camp Dawson to the cottage.

Just wish the fish were biting more :(

If we make it back to northern West Virginia we will know who to call for a great place to stay.

Amazing week and cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week with out daughter, son in law and 6 year old grand. The house is beautiful, comfortable and has everything you could need to cook or play. We enjoyed the pool, kayaking, playing the games and cooking in the wonderful kitchen. We are now totally relaxed and full of great memories.

Excellent home for a family gathering and holiday

  • 5 of 5

The home is spotless and very well equipped for a family gathering, with plenty of space on three levels, a well stocked (condiments) pantry and kitchen, ample games and DVDs/Wii (for the rainy days) and mountain top location for hiking and outdoors. The furnishings are comfortable, attractive and ample, whether for warm or cold times. Would gladly have given five stars, but there is no internet or cable TV. In fairness, none was advertised, though VRBO should be more explicit on these matters. The absence of the latter is ok, but the lack of internet may cause difficulty for those in the family who have no choice but to stay connected. The nearby Lodge has internet, a pool and well equipped exercise room. It also has a café with comfort food at reasonable prices. Golf is available and skiing at WISP is not far, snow permitting. All in all an excellent choice for a multi-generational family/holiday gathering.

Peaceful, comfortable, and well-stocked retreat

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a few days at Alpine Cottage with our 2 boys and both sets of grandparents. Every generation had a wonderful time. The grandparents enjoyed drinking coffee on the screened-in porch while watching deer in the backyard. The kids enjoyed playing in the spacious finished basement and watching DVDs from the provided collection. Everyone enjoyed hiking the trails, swimming in the community pool, and time at the lake. It was great arriving at the house to find the beds already made, the outside lights on (since the area is very dark at night), and the kitchen incredibly well-stocked. Andrea was always quick to respond to any question we had, and from looking around her home, it appears she thought of everything a vacationer would need. There are books, DVDS, magazines, an outdoor fire ring, comfortable chairs and beds, plenty of towels, toiletries if you forgot to pack anything, and all of the staples you may need but forgot. Everyone on the trip agreed this rental is a keeper for next year!

A very welcoming and comfortable home!

Our family enjoyed every moment of our stay at Alpine Cottage. The house was immaculate and well-stocked, the beds comfortable, and the location and privacy were ideal. We're looking forward to staying in Alpine Cottage in the future!

Lovely home in a private wooded lot

  • 5 of 5

This home is very well decorated and maintained, and it is spacious. The kitchen is well provisioned. We were there during the peak of fall foliage, and it was delightful to sit on the screened porch amidst the fall colors. Nearby Oakland, MD, was having its Autumn Glory festival, and that was great fun! Please be aware that the televisions are not connected. (There are DVDs for viewing.) I would also mention that the fourth bedroom is small, so while it could be used for 2 children, it is not suitable for 2 adults. In addition to enjoying Oakland, we enjoyed hiking in Cathedral State Park, Cranesville Swamp Nature Preserve, and Swallow Falls State Park (MD).
