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.

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).

Awesome! Felt like home.

  • 5 of 5

We are regular VRBO travelers for many years. This home is about the best we have ever rented. The home itself is beautifully and the décor was wonderful and everything was spotlessly clean. The home is set in the deep woods with deer in the yard everyday. It has a large screened porch that makes you think you are sitting in the tops of the trees. Now imagine that these woods are set on a mountain Resort with golf, swimming pool, restaurant, and a lake! We played golf, hiked, and went kayaking on the lake. Oh, yes, the home comes with two kayaks! The owners were terrific to work with and always available. We stayed for two trouble free weeks and wished it were four! You may have noticed the number of times I used the word "home". That is because it did feel like "HOME"! We would return in a heart beat. Thanks Andrea!

great family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank the Bonanno family for sharing Alpine Cottage with us. Our family enjoyed their generosity and hospitality that was far superior to any other place we have stayed. Andrea was great to work with and always responded quickly. As stated in other reviews everything was top notch from the beds to the well supplied kitchen. Very thoughtful to have coffee, tea and even pancake mix and syrup. The bathrooms had everything needed and our grandson was even able to play with him favorite legos. If there were more than five stars they would have it. Hope to return there next summer. The Evans Family

Beautiful Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

We felt like invited guests at this beautiful home. We stayed at Alpine Lake for a golf trip, it was our 6th year. This was the best house and we would definitely rent it again. The house was clean, spacious, and nicely decorated. I had a couple of questions while there and the owner was quick to respond. Great experience!

family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are so grateful to have found this place. It is nestled in the outer area of the resort where it is quiet except for the sounds of nature. We enjoyed deer, turkeys, and the singing of birds. In the morning we were greeted with a beautiful sunrise in our bedroom windows. The family enjoyed hiking the Castle Rocks, it felt like a small excursion of spelunking. The other amenities offered by the resort of the swimming, golfing, boating in the lake, and tennis were also utilized and enjoyed by the family.

The house is tastefully decorated. The house appears to be a newer house, in excellent condition. In the evening we enjoyed socializing around the fire place. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, and cooking tools. The owners are generous in the small items needed for cooking. We didn't lack for anything. There was plenty of room for all of us. The screened in porch was fun to sit in for an outdoor meal and socializing. We also had fun with the WII games.

Communication was great with the owner. They were helpful and quick to answer any questions.

Definitely recommend this property to families. We would love to return again. This was our first time vacationing in WV and it is a great memory added to our list of vacations.
