SPACE AND NATURAL LIGHT -- WOODLAND RIVERFRONT MOUNTAIN HOME

Elkins House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)

Upscale four bedroom plus game room, THREE full baths, sunroom/office, hot tub, spacious decks, master suite with Jacuzzi, 2nd bath with Jacuzzi, laundry, open kitchen with modern appliances, screened porch with gas grill, and fine furnishings throughout.

Great set-up for telecommuting if you can only manage a working vacation. Wireless satellite internet (with download limits), keyboard/mouse, computer desk, and office chair in the private sunroom.

The property has private river beach access to the Shavers fork river and is engulfed in trees, adjacent to neighboring 30+ acres of privately-owned undeveloped and open fields, and situated just across the gravel road from the one-million acre Monongahela National Forest.

The house features a stone fireplace, teak floors, vaulted ceilings, natural wood-plank paneling, wireless internet, 3 televisions with DVD players, stereo, and a 6 person hot tub. The gameroom includes a 32' flatscreen TV, Wii entertainment system (games available), assorted board games, Hot Wheels track, toddler puzzles, cards, and 100's of other toys and games. The gameroom has a card table and chairs, dart board, and water toys. There are 30+ classic DVDs for various ages available for viewing.

This inviting house sleeps 10 people comfortably: Main-level MBR – Queen; Sunroom attached to MBR – Twin Pull-out (ideal for child); Sleeping Loft – Full; Downstairs Bedroom #1 – Queen; Downstairs Bedroom #2 - Full / Twin bunk-bed plus Twin trundle. The game room can accommodate cots if needed (available upon request).

For a cozy winter, fall or early spring visit, the house features a forced-air gas furnace, supplemental baseboard heat in downstairs bedrooms, and a wood-burning fireplace in the living room (a moderate amount of firewood is provided).

In winter months, be prepared for snowy road conditions by driving a 4WD or suitable vehicle. The cabin is remote, so its narrow mountain road can be concerning to those not experienced.

Larisa

Speaks english

Carl and Larisa got married and moved to Elkins, WV in 2000. Larisa moved from DC, and Carl moved from VA. Each had prior roots in WV and longed to return. They now live in Elkins just 20 minutes from the 'All Get Out' riverside vacation rental.

The location is ideal -- just far enough out to be immersed in the natural surroundings, but only 25 minutes from a full-service grocery store, movie theater, Davis and Elkins College, Randolph County Community Arts Center, antique shopping, and a YMCA. It is an hour from highly-rated golf or skiing. Spring and summer bring wonderful fishing, swimming, floating, and boating in the river; winter is great for cross-country skiing on the property or nearby, and alpine skiing is less than an hour's drive. Fall's foliage is not to be missed as the house is engulfed in trees and adjacent to the 1 million acre Monogahela National Forest, wonderful for hiking right out your door. Don't miss nearby Elkins to dine at a variety of restaurants, enjoy free exhibits at the Community Arts Center, and ride the scenic trains on the Durbin and Greenbrier Railroad. Davis and Elkins College is just 20 minutes away where you can enjoy live music and Appalachian arts at the internationally renowned 5-week long Augusta Festival. The Forest Festival every fall is a big draw, with carnival rides and almost two weeks of activities.

The property that this house sits on has been in Larisa's family since 1967. In 1995 Larisa decided to start construction on the property. She designed the house from the ground up and expressed her love of wood, light, warmth, and airiness into the architecture. The windows, decks, sunroom, and porch are situated for maximum enjoyment of the surrounding views of mountains, river, woods, and fields. The ventable skylights in the living room and loft provide sunlight and the lovely sound of rainfall. You can hear the river flow many nights when the windows are open.

This house fully exceeded our expectations. It has wonderful views looking out over the river. The bedrooms are all spacious and well appointed. The master bedroom has a very nice oversized Jacuzzi tub. The downstairs has a full bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, and two bed rooms. There's a cute little loft bedroom. The main floor has a beautiful fire place, a living area, a full bathroom and a wonderful kitchen. Every utensil you may need is available, any cooking dishes you need are available. There were plenty of toys for the children. We took our sleds and there was a small hill out back that was just perfect for our little boys to sled on. Seeing everything snow covered and beautiful was wonderful. We only got to stay for the weekend, but I anticipate going back in the future. We really loved this place, and I wanted to go back as soon as we pulled out of the driveway.

wild and wonderful

The property has a 95% 5 star rating for a reason. A group of 8 of us stayed for a weekend. Got a little lost on the way in but we're the morons who didn't call ahead for better directions on the way in (don't be a tough guy, just call). Found it easily enough though. House was stocked with everything you'll need for a vacation. Wish we had better weather, the shavers fork is right there and I wanted to fish so badly. We're planning a trip back to fish already. Someone said something about mice in a review. I didn't see any mice but then again we didn't leave food out and are a pretty clean group of people. When you are in a house in the middle of nowhere and leave food out mice will come in. Don't be a slob and you won't have problems. Larisa was available to help and was super accommodating. Great location, beautiful home, roomy, modern, & plenty to do.

We enjoyed our stay at the cabin! The location was beautiful, and there were plenty of bedrooms/bathrooms for everyone. The kitchen was pretty well stocked once we found everything.

A secluded cabin with excellent access to many lovely walks in the woods

We very much enjoyed our stay at the property. Larisa was easy to work with and available at any time to answer questions for us. The home was comfortable and allowed us to feel like we had a private and secluded setting away from the city. The kitchen was well equipped and the living and bedroom areas comfortable and quiet. The trail system was mostly in good repair in spite of the severe damage that Hurricane Sandy had caused a few years ago. The only areas that we found to not be ready for hikers were Cathedral State Park with 40 to 50% of their trail system still closed off and sadly Big Bend Loop in the Smoke Hole Picnic Area. The Smoke Hole Picnic Area was walk in only and trail was findable, however completely overgrown with the summer's growth of weeds, making the path undistinguishable. The best area of all was the Sedona Creek Trail with the multiple small falls along the trail. We also loved the feel of Canaan Valley and would have loved to hike more in that area. The Dolly Sods was quite wet due to all the rain they have had in West Virginia this summer. All in all we were able to find a lovely 50 miles of hiking and could easily have hiked much, much more.
