27 SECLUDED ACRES OF SERENE WOODED MOUNTAIN VIEWS

Elkins House Rental Photos and Description

Secluded House, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Enjoy your own private beach with no other houses in sight. Open meadows, trees, river and stream -- this secluded yet accessible cabin has it all. Warm and welcoming three bedroom, 2 full baths, sleeping porch, open kitchen with modern appliances, hot tub, gas grill, outdoor fire-pit, and fine furnishings throughout.

Listen to the sound of the babbling brook within 50 feet of the house while lounging in the sunroom or relaxing in the outdoor hot tub. In addition, the property has 27 acres of private beach access to the Shavers fork river. The house is engulfed in a narrow band of trees and surrounded by meadows and glades for walks (bring long pants and socks to explore). It is also situated just 1/4 mile upstream from the one-million acre Monongahela National Forest.

The house features natural wood-plank paneling and a well appointed kitchen, wireless internet, 2 televisions with satellite TV and DVD players, and a stereo/home theater system. The kitchen is open to the dining area, perfect for social cooking. The sunroom has seating for dining or board games with a full view of the stream so you can enjoy the outdoors even in inclement weather. Enjoy year-round the six-person hot tub on the back deck overlooking the stream.

This cozy ground-level home sleeps 8 in beds and 10 including the living room pull-out and sun porch (the latter in warm months or for the polar bears in your group). There is a MBR w/ Queen; BR #2 w/ Queen, BR #3 w/ two sets of Twin bunks, Livingroom w/ Queen pull-out sofa, and (unheated) Sun Porch w/ a queen futon

For fall or early spring visits, the house features electric heat and a wood-stove (a modest 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. The gravel road is not suitable for motorcycles.

Please be aware of the close proximity of the stream to decide if the risk is too great for your toddlers or other children who might leave the house unsupervised. Our other VRBO listing #317752 has a larger land buffer between the house and the moving water.

Pet friendly -- dogs only please, and no more than two dogs per reservation unless owner exception is offered.

Owners provide a nominal quantity of paper products, bathroom soap, and laundry/dish detergent. Personal toiletries are to be provided by Guests.

Provisions:

• This is a NON-SMOKING rental with steep penalties for violations

• Receipt of 50% of total cost is required to hold your reservation

• Final 50% payment and damage deposit are due no later than 15 days before check-in.

• Full refund if greater than 60 days of stay, and within 60 days your payments will be returned to you if the property is re-rented for the period of your reservation (less cost of processing).

• Minimum durations apply -- 3 night minimum for holidays, plus see rate structure for details

• All reservations are subject to availability; terms can change without notice until deposit is paid.

Damage deposit is $250 and is fully refundable within two weeks of departure if rental agreement terms are met.

We want to ensure that this property is the right fit for you! This is our vacation home that we are sharing – we are not a resort with a maintenance, concierge, and cleaning staff – and our prices reflect that limitation. That said we have put together as many resources as possible to help you plan your trip and enjoy your stay as if it were your own vacation home, and have tried to stock the house so that you wouldn’t want for much.

If you are looking for a remote mountain getaway and are willing to roll with what comes from a country vacation, you will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful spot!

The road to the house is gravel, and depending on whether the road crew has repaired the road recently there may be potholes. In most cases you can drive around them, but there may be one or two on the way that you’ll just need to slowly drive through. There are also no guardrails on the road, but it has several turnouts to allow cars to pass.

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 rentals.

Larisa purchased this house in 2001

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.

In 2001 Carl and Larisa were fortunate to have the opportunity to buy this lovely acreage on the banks of the Shavers Fork River from a family friend, just next door to the cabin they've owned since 1995 (VRBO #317752). Since that time they have made several improvements, while keeping the original character that the builder, a mill owner, had created in handmade wormy chestnut kitchen cabinets, exceptional stonework, and plank poplar paneling throughout. You can easily hear the creek flowing behind the house as the summer night breezes keep you cool.

PEACEFUL

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was clean and comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with cooking utensils, beautiful tableware, plenty of newer cookware and newer appliances. We could have cooked a feast. The surroundings were more beautiful than the description on the website. I wish we could have stayed longer and explored more of the area. Elkins is a very friendly town. We would recommend Wayside United Methodist Church on Isner Creek Road for a friendly place of worship. Overall, nice cabin, nice area, plenty to do!

ANNUAL FISHING TRIP

  • 4 of 5
Annual fishing trip for the past 12 years has led to many houses/cabins in the Elkins area. The house sits just out side the Stuart Recreational Area. Very quiet and peaceful area.
The house is decent not the best but certainly not the worst. Accommodations are comfortable. Kitchen was dated compared to other places (No Dishwasher or Garbage Disposal) Pots and pans were scarce (glad I brought some from home)
The fishing was decent. We fish for Trout - no luck behind the house. Did catch Small Mouth Bass though. The Trout were all up by the bridge and the streams that run by the entrance to Stuart Rec.
Overall was a decent place and would recommend this property.

TRUE RELAXATION!

  • 5 of 5
The entire experience couldn't have been better. The owner was super quick with responses regarding our last minute get away to their beautiful house. The property was even better than expected. It was so peaceful, quiet and relaxing! That was all we wanted for our Christmas vacation! My husband (and our 2 dogs), packed the car with way to much stuff because all the stuff I was worried wouldn't be there, was all there ready and waiting. We have stayed at other properties and have regretted not bringing our own sheets, towels etc.....but this place has it all and they are super comfortable. It was just the 2 of us, but I felt like I could have entertained our entire family! They have tried to think of everything you could need, all the way down to the camp chairs for the whole family!
Its hard to pick our favorite thing from the week we spent there, but one of the best was sitting in the hot tub looking up at the mass quantities of stars. True relaxation!!!!!

VERY NICE ACCOMMODATIONS FOR A COUPLE WITH DOGS. ACCURATE PROPERTY DESCRIPTIONS AND PHOTOS.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from renting this lovely accommodation and were very pleased. The home was clean and comfortable and was perfect for us and our two dogs. The property had lots of wide-open spaces for exploring and exercise. The owner's directions were spot-on and many informational pamphlets were found in the kitchen drawer. Although we did not have good cell service at the property, we had access to a landline phone with plenty of minutes. The washer and dryer were nice so we didn't have to pack so many clothes. My only concern is that I may have gone over the daily wi-fi limit -- I couldn't figure out a way to determine how much I was using each day. If you want to go out to eat, be prepared to drive about 20 minutes into Elkins. This was not a problem but may be a consideration to someone interested in renting this property. Once in Elkins, there are plenty of places to eat and shop. My only other comment is to forget the restaurants in the campground. We couldn't get anyone to wait on us and it was very smoky. Overall, this property/accommodation was great; I would highly recommend to anyone interested in the Elkins area.
