WALNUT COVE RETREAT: BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY HOME ON 105 PRIVATE ACRES

Buckhannon Estate Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8 MAXIMUM

Escape to the country on this 105 acre estate in the Mountain Lakes Region of West Virginia. A beautiful newly renovated 3000 square foot home boasts granite counters in a gourmet kitchen, 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths with a patio overlooking the meadows and pond. Total privacy abounds as you sit on the 2nd floor balcony of the master bedroom suite, watching deer in the meadow. This home has central ac, hardwood floors and a fully stocked kitchen. The house comfortably sleeps 10 with 2 kings, 2 fulls, and 2 twins and a queen sleeper sofa. Linens are provided.

The spacious, beautiful home is only surpassed by the 105 acres of privacy for your enjoyment. Catch some fish for dinner from our stocked fishing pond, hike or bike on miles of secluded trails, pick ripe blackberries or raspberries in season, or simply sit back and relax, enjoying the perfect serenity that surrounds you.

Please Note: This is a NON-SMOKING residence

Wildlife : Wildlife watching is a relaxing pastime. Black Bear, Bobcat, Whitetail Deer, Coyote, Fox, Osprey, and other small game have been sited from our patio! A must do is the West Virginia State Wildlife Center in French Creek, WV, only 4 miles from Walnut Cove. The Wildlife Center is a native wildlife zoo in a natural setting. In addition to the exhibit there is a gift shop, picnic areas and a stocked trout pond (license required).

Food: The full gourmet kitchen at Walnut Cove Retreat has everything you need to prepare that perfect meal. A full grocery store is located only 1.2 miles from the property. In case you want to go out, (but we doubt it) there is a small quick order restaurant in the community of Rock Cave 1.2 miles away. For more options, drive 15 miles to Buckhannon for fine dining at the 88 Restaurant and Lounge or casual dining at one of the many restaurants. Information on additional choices can be provided. Another fine dining option is Stillwaters Restaurant 20 miles away at Stonewall Jackson Lake and Resort.

Great Family Fun: Let the kids enjoy the swing, sandbox and swing set, if they aren't already having too much fun exploring the property. In winter, don't forget your cross country skis, or simply enjoy great sledding (sleds provided).

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5
The house and property has issues. A lot of the lights don"t work because the bulbs are blown. The handrails on the deck and balcony are not secured to the house, this is a serious safety issue. Only one cue for the pool table,only one TV,the oven doesn't work properly. The furniture is outdated and rundown,the flowerbeds our overgrown,snake issue. The sandbox had brokenbits of mmasonry in it. The pond was so overgrown we had to weed eat it before the kids could fish! I don't think it is worth what we paid for it!.

Owner's Response: This guest is clearly trying to downgrade our home in an attempt to receive a refund. There are two working tv's in the residence.The property was left in deplorable condition upon their departure. Among other things, curtain rods were bent and ripped from walls and curtains torn down. The range had been partially unplugged from the wall (upon being plugged in properly it is fully functional) The pool cues were broken and had tips removed. Trash was left in the floors including broken beer bottles on the stairs. Children had written their names on the bedroom walls in ink. They also took it upon themselves to weedeat large swaths of vegetation from around ponds without permission. These guests are no longer welcome at our home and their deposit was withheld due to the damages and additional cleaning required. Please read our other reviews and you will see that none of our other guests have ever had similar complaints. Thanks!

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5
We spent Christmas week at Walnut Cove with 4 adults, 5 kids under 12 and our dog. Everyone had a fantastic experience and the kids shed many tears when it was time to leave. Even the dog had a blast running all over the property! The house is large and very well maintained, even with so many people we weren't tripping over each other. The owners were very easy to work with, even helped us cross fingers for snow - and it worked! Had a White Christmas just like the ones I used to know....
We've stayed at about 12 different VRBO homes over the past few years and this one ranks up there with the best. Extremely easy to reserve, pay, and helpful owners. Thanks Kathy for a great Christmas break!

Fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5
The home is absolutely beautiful and I loved that they stressed it was a smoke free environment. The neighbours are pretty far away so you feel pretty secluded. They have a fire-pit that you can enjoy, we definitely enjoyed our marshmallows.

We needed a place that would accept pets and boy it didn't disappoint. He had so much fun running around on the their many acres.

I would recommend this place to everyone. It was a great 10yr anniversary escape. I loved every minute of it and will definitely go back.

Great trip, great owners

  • 5 of 5
there are extremely limited options when looking for a vrbo in the buckhannon area. While this home is about 20 minutes drive outside of WV, the drive is worth it. the property is gorgeous. Big yard, open fields, blueberry and blackberry bushes.

they did an amazing job on the house- it's fully renovated and one of the nicer rental properties I have seen. Lots of games and a pool table for rainy weather too. the owners are super responsive- we had an issue with the water and called them that day- they called the water board and figured everything out.

the only caveats I'd have with this place are the neighbors. It is on a mostly empty road with lots of open space. Unfortunately, the closest neighbors seem to have an endless supply of coonhounds that are an extremely active and loud bunch- at all hours. Constantly. Turning on the exhaust fans at night seemed to limit the noise, but didn't do much during the day.

Overall, this is a great option for anyone looking for a rental property in the Buckhannon/ Rock Cave area- a beautiful house on a beautiful property with great owners.

Almost Heaven

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Walnut Cove because of a family wedding in the area. We felt like we had come home! The master bath shower was a delight with the two shower heads and the 4 year old loved the swing and the bunnies in the yard. It was close to the local super market too. We had room to relax and visit and plenty of hot water enabled us to get to the wedding on time. All of us want to come back and stay again!
