We Enjoy Sharing Our Refuge, our Vacation Home - Our Cabin in the Wild.
Though we love our life in the city, the therapeutic quality of nature is fact, and the soulful benefits are immense. Henry David Thoreau went to the woods because he “wished to live deliberately” and “to suck out all the marrow of life.” Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote that the outdoors brings eternal youth. We find that this place eludes the tic-toc of time and replenishes our blood with life. May you find your moment of tranquility among the ripples of the river, as you explore this land of the amazing forest.
West Virginia Department of Natural Resources (DNR) completed the official trout stockings of the Williams River and the Cranberry River for 2017!
2017 is here, and we are making our personal plans for staying at the cabin in the spring, summer, and fall. Looking forward to the spring wild flowers and the rushing waters, lush green mountain summer days as time seems to stop, and vibrant autumn color on the hills. We want to hike further, picnic twice as often, and catch more trout if that is possible. Please choose your time slots early as our little cabin is becoming a little more well known. Our many blessings and thanks to all those last year that celebrated their anniversaries at our cabin. We look forward to hearing from you.

Designed by an architect and built by the owners in 2009. This stunning mountain cabin is a luxurious and complete cozy get-away. It is perfect for a couple, but will also please a small outdoor-loving, active family that ventures out into the surrounding Monongahela National Forest to picnic, bike, hike, fish, hunt, kayak, photograph and explore. Take all of your toys.
The Williams River is across the field in front of the cabin-150' away. The Cranberry River is short drive over Red Oak mountain into its watershed - 9 miles. The Williams River is more than 25 mile long.
The screened-in front porch with the rocking chairs is a great place to watch the sunrise with your favorite cup of coffee or tea, and the one you love. Or, let your love one sleep in and you enjoy the glory of the dawn, as you refresh your thoughts and mind.
Frequently, there are deer sharing the morning with you as they cross the field. We love to grill many of our meals on the gas grill. The kitchen has plenty of pots, pans, dishes, cork screw, skewers, some spices, etc. Sheets and towels are provided. There is Dishwasher soap.
