PORCH SWING VIEW OF 4 MOUNTAINS, NO HOUSES, 18 FORESTED ACRES

Webster Springs Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 7-8)

Fly fish the fabulous Elk River and its back fork then come back to your stunning mountain cabin to crystal clean air and the best-tasting spring water on earth, and mountain-top views set within a gorgeous hardwood forest on 18 acres with no fencing. Lumber companies conveniently left a great 1 mile gravel road from the main highway 15 and the surrounding virgin forest creates utter privacy.

Summer sightings include deer and fawns, squirrels, birds and fields of butterflies. When our children were young they'd roof-watch the wildlife that didn't come into the clearing, and the on-site blueberries in summer and apples in the fall ensure bear and cub sightings nearby.

Only 45 minutes to Snow Shoe for high life, or about the same from Elkins. Wander the West Virginia-priced (inexpensive) antique shops with terrific finds, or find some weekend mountain music at the many heritage weekends, where relations near and far visit for a town family reunion.

Remind yourself and the kids how life was ''back when.''

The cabin (called a ''camp'' in the mountains) was lovingly hand-crafted from 26 kinds of timber by a master carpenter. There is central air, radiant heating if you'd rather, a grill and smoker, unlimited hard line calls, a new television with satellite, a washer/dryer/microwave, games, and plenty of books for reading during your stay.

We bought the house in 1980 and the five kids love it, but as they started having families on thier own and moved away we decided to rent the house out in 2008. I have a hotel management background so we have really enjoyed getting to know guests on a beeter basis than a one-night stay, especially the people who come year after year and the guest comments ... we made the right decision to share the family experience.

Donna purchased this cabin in 1984

We have a few rituals -- food is cheap, time stretches, the porch is huge and the television doesn't get turned on. We play Country & Western when we come home from early morning fly fishing or hunting, and just sit lazily and talk or play board games ... that is part of the fun.

While checking the calendar to be sure Donna had me dated correctly for our 2014 trout excursion (like she would ever not be on top of every detail) I realized I had not reviewed our 2013 trip. Where do I begin? There were 65 degree days, rain, cold rain and snow all in the month of May. You have to love Spring weather in WV. There was the first days mess of fish that was turned into a fine trout stew, the deer walking through the property daily, the sun rises and sets, the fog dancing over the distant mountains and the front porch where most of our time was spent. I have told many close friends of this cabin found on Point Mt knowing they would enjoy it as much as we do. I have stayed at numerous VRBO sites but have never been treated with the hospitality offed by Donna. If you have a taste for WV as it should be experienced, try this cabin......

Amazing Vacation on Point Mountain

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 6, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
We arrived just before sunset and easily found this wonderful cabin, owners directions were easy to follow, the gravel road to the cabin is in good condition, 2 wheel drive is fine, however suggest vehicle with high clearance, we quickly unpacked and relaxed on the front porch enjoying the view over the mountains, then night fall came and the twinkling stars lit the sky, the milky way was totally visible, the hoot owls kept us company, the next day we hiked the trails around the cabin, each day brought a beautiful change in the fall colors, the next day we took a drive to Summersvile to view the Lake and Dam , Summersville is a very nice area to visit, on our last day we drove to Cranberry Mountain National Forest, the views of the fall foliage was dramatic, we hiked the trails and visited the Hill Creek Falls. we also got to see a Black Bear, we then drove into Marlington for dinner at Dorie's, then continued back to Point Mountain, where we saw wild turkeys and many deer near the cabin. Our short vacation was a memory to treasure and would highly recommend to everyone.

The cabin is clean and comfortable, my wife, myself, our dog and a close friend enjoyed our stay, cabin is roomy and well stocked with cookware, utensils, plates, glassware. and other necessities.

Excellent for getting away from it all!

Our stay was very relaxing, and if you want to just get away from it all and enjoy quiet time with friends or family, this is the place for you. Sitting on the porch, watching the sun rise and set, seeing wildlife, watching birds. We grilled all of our meals, I even grilled a pie I made with blueberries from the bushes near the cabin. The walk down to the river by the logging road is a breeze going down, but make sure you have plenty of water for the return trip up the mountain! The Custard Stand was great, especially the flavored soft serve ice cream. Day trips to Summersville and Ripley were great, and there are lots of places along the Elk River to stop and swim or just dip your toes in the water. Even the dog had fun, he got to chase a deer for the first time in his life. We visited the Carnifex Ferry Battlefield State Park (near Summersville), the site of a Civil War battle. We took a short along the Patterson Trail. Go on a weekend or holiday, the office/museum is closed on weekdays. You pass a lake with swimming and camping on the way, so you could make a day of swimming, picnic, a hike and visiting the battlefield. Cell phone service is sketchy at best, so be prepared for that! It's nice to just sit and play games, listen to the radio, and just hang out. The composting toilet is pretty neat, once you get used to not reaching for the flusher. The cabin is well-supplied with linens, blankets, towels, pots, pans, dishes, silverware, even lots of spices. All you need is food!

Perfect place to get away from it all

Everything was as described. We loved the house. The view from the front porch was fantastic, especially during the two thunderstorms we had while there. There was plenty of space, but it was just the two of us, so I can't speak for how comfortable a larger group would be. It took no time at all to get used to the composting toilet - it works very well. The place is very secluded, which is what we wanted. We did see some black bears and deer while there, along with assorted smaller woodland creatures. We're not the hiking, hunting, fishing types, but there is plenty of that to do, as well as many interesting day trips. Bottom line, we would love to return!!

Owner's Response: ... and as I say, guests like Michael are what make our West Virginia experience. Our guests' questions have created the Welcome Letter, their suggestions and advice have proven invaluable in helping me maintain and create procures. We enjoy our house more the weeks we go up because their payments have been plowed into upgrading and refreshing, so it is truly a win-win. Thank you VRBO and everyone who uses it!

Diamond in the Rough

  • Stayed: Jul 2013
This area of WV is remote. The cabin is rustic raw. We loved it & our family loved it.
It is roomy and cozy. Beds slept well. The porch with the swing was our favorite.
The owners are a delight to work with. Honest and caring owners truly.
Best part of the cabin & most talked about was the toilet system... but loved that too.
We have found a Diamond in the rough and will be honored to stay here again and again.
Thank you for sharing this WONDERFUL home away from home.

Notes:
Fly fishing, July blueberries and raspberries, fall grapes and apples in the yard, herb garden all year. If you hike look for wild ginseng and ramps (hot onions), adn you will find more berries along the paths. Excellent ATV trails and hiking, no neighbors, outbuildings to explore and let the dogs run free if you know they will come home. Most people will grill on the big back porch, read a book on the swing, or get lulled but the quiet and clean air and take lots of naps. If you like antiquing, mountain music, farm auctions, even log rolling, hiking, horse back riding, or swimming in the river this is a place to go back in time. So many guest tell me they like giving the children the kind of summer vacation they knew ... so play some cards and Scrabble and if you are like us ... eat food you'd never get away with at home!
