About Amanda Bowers

The home was purchased in 2005 by Chuck Holton and his wife, Connie. It soon became the Holton Hideaway...Chuck is a television War Correspondent, author, and Adventurer who travels to more than 20 countries each year. Photographs of Chuck's travels adorn the home. When he's not reporting from a far-flung war zone, Chuck hides out with his family at their home in Panama, but the family still loves spending time at the family farm in WV several times each year.

Amanda Bowers purchased this lodge in 2005

Why Amanda Bowers chose Fayetteville

In 2005 we escaped the business of Washington, DC for a more serene existence in southern West Virginia. When we moved to Panama in 2012, we wanted to see the farm in WV being enjoyed by others.

What makes this lodge unique

Maple Fork Lodge is a wonderfully secluded property - well off the road. With eighty acres to explore and mountaintop views that will take your breath away - it's the perfect place for relaxing with family and friends. The decor isn't stuffy and formal - but designed to make large groups seem cozy and intimate.

Take Me Home, Country Roads

  • 5 of 5
After a few days at Maple Fork Lodge you’ll be humming John Denver’s “Country roads take me home to the place I belong: West Virginia….” Nineteen family members, ranging in age from four to 74, gathered here for a weeklong reunion. This was our ninth biennial get-together and all have been at different locations. This house ranks at the top for having a well-stocked kitchen with plenty of dishes, pans, and spices. The appliances in the kitchen and laundry area are top notch. There are plenty of board games and adult and children’s books available to guests. The wrap-around porch is every homeowner’s dream. The large yard provided ample room for croquet, corn hole and badminton contests (we brought those yard games). We took advantage of everything the property offered—swimming, hiking, fishing, kayaking, and using the fire pit for an evening bonfire with s’mores. The applesauce we made from apples that had fallen from the tree was delicious. If you’re not familiar with country life, you’ll enjoy hearing cows mooing and seeing stars without the glare of city lights (check out www.heavens-above.com to see what might be passing overhead). The area has plenty of tourist attractions nearby and we enjoyed exploring them. This is a well-cared for, clean home on a great property in an excellent location. We want to thank the owners for sharing their home with us. This place and the happy memories we made while there will keep us smiling for a long, long time.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5
We were so blessed to have found this gem! The location is not only easy to find, but it is only miles off the interstate, which makes it so accessible! We were a family group and arriving from multiple locations yet it took us all about the same time due to interstate travels.
The house manager, Amanda, was very helpful thru the rental process and even during our stay. She really makes sure your stay is wonderful!
Once you arrive, you will be amazed by this property. It is a quiet oasis and you will have to decide which porch you want to enjoy your cup of coffee on. Marley, the resident dog, was so happy to show us the swimming pond, even jumping in on our first tour. We had several try out the boats and swinging rope.
The play gym was perfect for our little ones and the yard is flat, so lots of room to run those little energizer bunnies!
The layout on the inside is great for a couple of reasons. We gathered mostly in the kitchen area and were able to put kids to bed in the upstairs bedrooms and not disturb their sleep while we continued to visit and play games. And the flip side, was when those pitter patter toes hit the ground level early in the morning, those sleeping in the basement were able to continue sleeping without being disturbed either.
We shopped at Sam's club and Walmart and Krogers for our groceries that week. Because of location we went several times without it being a big deal. We cooked all of our meals there and found there to be sufficient supplies needed. We did bring our own crockpots. You will love the pantry they have EMPTY so you can place your goodies in a cabinet and not have to clutter the counter space with snacks! There are two ovens and a K-cup Kerieg coffee machine. We love to eat as a family and were able to sit all 14 of us around one table. (there are fold out tables and chairs if you need more seating) They even have a breakfast nook that seats 4 and we chose not to use that as it was not located next to the big table. So do not worry about not having seating!
The sofas and chairs in the house in all the living rooms are wonderful. Warning for the couch in the basement: do not sit there if you are sleepy, you will NOT go to bed!
I thought we might have issues with only having 3.5 baths, but that was not the case. And I never once heard anyone complain of running out of hot water either.
There are plenty of TVs and games and toys if you do not bring your own. We are looking forward to returning in 2015!

Family reunion from 8 states!

  • 5 of 5
Our family has spread out over 8 states and Maple Fork Lodge was the perfect location for us to gather for a week of togetherness. We ranged in age from 2 to 66. Most could drive in (MI, IL, OH, NY, GA, NC), but a couple flew from Arizona and California. The lodge had plenty to do on the property--from picking blackberries to swimming, kayaking and fishing. There was plenty of space for the 18 of us to gather or be in a quiet spot. The porches were magnificent and the furniture ample for any need. This was the most well-stocked rental property we have used! Activities like white water rafting, zip lining, and the exhibition coal mine with the Youth Museum were less than 30 minutes away! The kitchen was very well furnished. Our biggest suggestion would be adding another refrigerator or at least ice maker and possibly a second dishwasher, but other than that we are hoping we can spend another glorious vacation at Maple Fork Lodge!

Perfect for what we expected.

  • 5 of 5
We needed every bit of space in this very large house. It was exactly what we were looking for. Property was amazing! The owner/manager of the property went above and beyond to communicate and help make our stay a pleasant one. No surprises. Would definitely stay here again!

Awesome Place!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a large group and this was the perfect place for us. It was very spacious and clean. The hot tub broke down at one point and the owners came right away to fix it. There was a dog and cat on the farm that were very friendly. The kids loved playing with them. There was a fire pit where we grilled marshmallows. We were there for white water rafting and that was very close by. Great place and we highly recommend.

What a wonderful time at Camprunamuk! It was over the top! A beautiful place; great retreat place

  • 5 of 5
Heading to West Virginia for a college graduation, we had a party of 9 and we all were very pleased with the accommodations. The house is gorgeous and lots of living space; love the porches and swing. The rooms are well supplied and everything was clean. The road out was definitely a W. V. road, but once on location, it is a retreat with a pond in front and behind, a sweet dog greets you, birds galore, a few animals, and nature all around. The multi media room downstairs was great, a treat to relax and watch a movie and we enjoyed the big family kitchen. It was perfect for fellowship, meals, and games. Would be a great place for youth group retreat. Lots of restaurants in Beckley and availability of many shopping places, hiking trails, kayaking/rafting, and New River Gorge Bridge. We were very pleased and would definitely recommend this to friends and relatives. We had good communication with the manager and found MapleFork Lodge to be way above our expectations.

The Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine is an interesting several-hour excursion. The Tamarack cultural center is a wonderful collection of locally-made arts and crafts for sale. Downtown Mount Hope - 4 miles away - is a great place to step back in time and shop for unique treasures. And for the outdoors man, the New River Gorge is unsurpassable.
