Why Carter Zerbe chose Marlinton
The cottage is located on the Greenbrier River, one of the premier fishing and paddling streams in West Virginia. It is at the end of a long driveway, surrounded by trees and foliage. This a studio - style setup: there is one large room with a sleeping area (queen bed), living area with a fireplace, kitchen, and bathroom. It has WiFi, but no cell phone serviceor land line. You can drive a few miles into Hillsboro or Marlinton if you want to use your cell phone. We bought this property because of its unique location on one of the most beautiful, family-friendly rivers in West Virginia, offering fishing, paddling, tubing, swimming, biking and hiking. Pocohontas County is one of the outdoor friendly places in West Virginia. We are minutes away from hiking/backpacking trains, mountain streams, waterfalls and wildlife. On the property itself, you may encounter deer, raccoons, turkeys, squirrels, chipmunks, and very occasionally, a black bear. The Greenbrier River is home to beaver, trout, bass, otters, bald eagles, blue herons, ospreys. Songbirds are plentiful. The property is minutes away from Cranberry Glades, a unique Canada-like ecosystem with plants typically only found in northern climates. The Glades are part of the Cranberry Backcountry which provides multiple hiking and backpacking opportunities. The Greenbrier River Trail runs nearly the length of the Greenbrier River. We often see hikers and bikers on the trail while swimming. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, our place is for you!

Beautiful and relaxing
Thank you for sharing the cabin with us. We had a wonderful time. The cabin was perfect for the two of us!
Very Nice and cozy.
Had a wonderful time during our stay. My husband and I visited nearby sites and took in the beauty that is WV. It was very peaceful and quiet. The stars at night were simply amazing!
Nice N Quiet
Clean, well furnished in a REALLY quiet area. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place. But be advised - there is absolutely no cell phone service (which can be a good thing). Carter was a great host. The cottage was clean and easy to get to, just a short walk to the river, and it's only a few minutes from the town of Marlinton if you want to run out for a meal. Hope to return.
Wonderful cabin, wonderful hosts.
Ideally situated cabin close to the Greenbrier river. Very quiet, perfect place to relax. Carter is a great host! He even had an anniversary gift waiting on us!
Beautiful nice setting up on a hill across the road from the greenbrier river!
Carter and his family were very accommodating. The cabin is set up very nice! It has pretty much everything ya need. Nice gas fireplace, nice shower, very comfortable bed. Kitchen completely furnished. We built a fire up on the hill in the fire pit and there was even wood already cut. We will definitely rent from them again!
Great place to stay!
Really enjoyed our stay! Cabin is very secluded and is located in the woods above the river. The road leading to the river community where the cabin is located is great to walk on, with very little traffic and lots of wildlife. The location was good for our day trips to Seneca Rocks, Cranberry Glades and the Greenbank Observatory. The shower is great, the bed is comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. Our hosts had obviously put a lot of thought into making the cabin comfortable, and even stock a nice assortment of books and a first aid kit. I would definitely stay here again!
Access to the Greenbrier River Trail at Buckeye is about 3 miles north of the cottage, and at Seebert, about 3 miles south of the cottage.
Cranberry Glades and back country, in the Monongahela National Forest, is a 15 minute drive from the cottage, with numerous hiking and cross-country skiing trails.
There are several beautiful trout streams in the area, including the Williams, Cranberry and Cherry Rivers as well as Knapps Creek, Dunlap's Creek, and others.
Day trips to Lewisburg, WV, voted one of America's coolest small towns with fabulous restaurants and shops. Also an hour from Warm Springs,VA, home of the famous mineral baths built by Thomas Jefferson, with two very good restaurants.
