Enjoy our log cabin with views of the West Virginia mountains. If you want to stay in a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle, but also want easy access to a number of activities, this is the place to stay. The cabin is located in Slatyfork, two miles from the four season resort of Snowshoe Mountain. It sleeps six in three queen size beds with one bedroom and a cozy loft.
Bring only clothes/toiletries and food! This cabin has everything you need: full kitchen, sheets, towels, paper and cleaning products(not personal toiletries), and a porch with views to Snowshoe and of wildlife.
Play golf at the Gary Player designed Raven Golf Course, voted #1 Public Access Golf Course in West Virginia for the fourth year in a row. Enjoy a walk through Slatyfork Farm development adjoining our property. We love our pets and understand you may want to bring your pet on your vacation. We are pet-friendly; just tell us type and number of pets you are bringing. Linens and cleaning upon departure are included in our rates.
There is a small grocery store, gas and unique shopping one mile from the cabin. Four wheel drive recommended in the winter, but we are right off well-maintained Highway 219 leading to Snowshoe.

One of the most popular recreational activities in Pocahontas County is fishing. Eight Rivers (Cheat, Cherry, Cranberry, Elk, Gauley, Greenbrier, Tygart Valley, Williams) and countless streams originate in the area.
Take a scenic ride on the Cass railroad(check seasonal schedule and buy tickets ahead because they book up quickly), mountain bike, hike, fish, bike the Greenbrier River Trail or float the Greenbrier River. Visit the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, Lost World Caverns, Falls of Hill Creek, Droop Mountain State Park, Beartown State Park, Watoga State Park and Seneca State Forest.
Nationally recognized, the Highland Scenic Highway, is a must see. Cutting across Monongahela National Forest, this 43-mile route, much of which follows Rte. 150, the highest major road in the state- provides dramatic views of the Allegheny Highlands. This scenic byway, accessible from April through November (weather permitting) begins just south of Slatyfork and travels through hardwood forests to Richwood.
Along the way, you’ll find wildlife, waterfalls, 150 miles of hiking trails, and the 36,000 acre Cranberry Bogs Wilderness Area and Visitors Center. The county is home to two other nationally recognized scenic byways as well that are accessible year-round.

Our family including our 25 year old daughter and 23 year old son loves to ski. We also love coastal living in our home of Savannah,GA. Since we rarely get snow, we started visiting West Virginia to enjoy snow and skiing. After visiting the area during other seasons, we realized that we loved West Virginia year-round. We bought our home with plans of renting it out to visitors. We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to enjoy the cabin and share it with others. Visit soon in any season and enjoy all West Virginia has to offer from the comfort of our cabin!
Chrissie Burriss purchased this cabin in 2003
Our cabin is conveniently located to enjoy all activities in the area.
We enjoy our location in the mountains since we are from a coastal region.
Chrissie! We're just back home!! We had a wonderful, wonderful stay in your lovely cabin. I took my dog for a walk each morning in the lovely field with the wild flowers blooming, and I felt like I found a slice of heaven!
We arrived at night with quite a bit of snow on the access road. An AWD vehicle to reach the house would be strongly recommended, as mentioned by others. The setting is beautiful and private with a few other homes in the area - very quiet and secluded feeling overall. Inside, the cabin felt a bit smaller than expected, but clean and quite cozy, accommodating our small family and basset hound well. The owners have provided everything needed for a comfortable stay. They are very responsive to any issues and are in touch as necessary. Travel time to parking at Snowshoe was about 20+ minutes, depending on weather conditions and traffic, with several retailers (ski rentals, fuel, groceries) available on the way up. Overall we were pleased with our experience and would recommend this property to future visitors.
We arrived at Mountain Mama on a Friday. It was snowing but no issues finding the cabin. Everything was neat and clean. Everything was how it was explained on the website. Very nice and warm. the water did have a slight sulfur smell so you need to take water with you for drinking and to make coffee. Lots of supplies were already there which was nice. Will plan on going back again. You do need a 4 wheel drive to get into the cabin.
We just returned from a stay over MLK weekend. The cabin was quaint, nicely decorated, clean, and cozy. Although it is only heated by a small propane stove and auxiliary heat in the bathroom, it was warm and quite comfortable. It's a little smaller than what it appeared in the pictures, but nevertheless we found it quite enjoyable. The steps to the loft are pretty steep and I would not recommend the beds up there for younger kids. The drive up to the top of the mountain was probably only 10-15 minutes, so not bad at all. The driveway forks backward to the cabin and is a little bit challenging. The owner recommends that you back into it up a hill. It's pretty narrow when you start but then widens out as you get to the cabin, which is probably only 30-40 yards up the driveway. We discovered though that when you leave you do not need to turn around. The primary driveway is one way and loops back down to the main road.
It was a nice change of pace from the noise and busyness of the lodges and condos at the top of the mountain. We would definitely stay there again!
We stayed over Thanksgiving. It was very snowy and beautiful outside. We built a snowman and went sledding. The cabin is beautiful and cozy inside. Very clean, warm, and nicely decorated. Very nice place to stay!
My husband and I spent a long weekend staying at Mountain Moma in late October. We arrived after dark but the directions were excellent and we had no problem finding the cabin. We went knowing that it was off season and most everything would be closed. Since my husband was going fishing and i was going to catch up on some reading, that was not a problem. We enjoyed watching the WVU football team win on the satellite TV. The cabin was fully equipped and was centrally located to various sites. We explored Cranberry Glades, Whitaker Falls and Snowshoe. We would definitely stay there again.
after a long ride with twin 7mth olds, a 12yr old and our 120lb dog.. we arrived to this great cabin... everything needed was there and ready to go. just need to bring your clothes, food and cosmetic essential's. The cabin is perfect, open floor plan, which is great with just crawling babies, awesome deck with grill and yes we grilled 7 of our 8 nights there. Dishwasher and washer/dryer are great bonuses, as was the fans and games, and the kitchenware is better than my own at home. I have no complaints about our stay at all... the only thing missing was a nice hot tub for relaxing tired hiking muscles, and some bicycle's would be awesome(but they can be rented at few places nearby) I definitely recommend to do a grocery store trip before leaving civilization, as the in town store prices are very high and the next closest is in Marlinton @ 30min drive. As stated it is a national quiet zone... so NO cell reception, but Wi-Fi areas nearby(list on fridge) I especially loved this part... No technology interruptions was awesome! Our dog loved his vacation too.. just beware the neighbors/store down front have dogs, we almost learned the hard way when going for a walk with our dog and them chasing us.(owners hollered and they did halt) but still gave my husband a mini heart attack.
All in all we loved the whole trip and are talking about making it a yearly vacation spot.
The cabin was visually clean upon arrival, except under the furniture, which we moved a little to make room for babies, and therefore the past renters dog hair emerged from hiding under it and had to be cleaned. A better vacuum would be great as well and a good steam cleaning of living room rug.
I also recommend the porch light to be switched to more sensitive, as it is pitch black at night and hard to see once rounding corner of porch to driveway. I used my cell flash light.
The loft area does require almost climbing ladder like stairs, but our kid loved it and the view of TV from above.
Fly fishing, Rafting(1-3hrs away), Go Fly fishing on Cheat Cherry Cranberry Elk Gauley Greenbrier Tygart Rivers! Kids of all ages will enjoy the new indoor rec center which also doubles as a special event room. Basketball goals, pool and hockey tables and video arcade along with night time family entertainment. (Call Snowshoe to ensure that building is not in use for a special event rather than for kids' activities)!
