This beautiful new cabin built end of 2008 is private and secluded with great views but has paved road access. It is located 20 minutes from Spruce Knob or Seneca Rocks. The Monongahela National Forest is located within a few hundred ft to allow endless hiking, wildlife viewing and anything else you can think of to do in thousands of acres of woods. Within a 20 minute drive there are a couple choices for rock climbing, many public accesses to stocked and native trout streams, Spruce knob lake, and a couple caves that are open for tours.
Within 45 minutes to an hour there are 2 ski resorts,(Canaan Valley and Timberline) Blackwater Falls, and Highlands Golf Course at Franklin West Virginia. Snow Shoe ski resort in only a 1.5 hour drive from the cabin as well as a couple different excursion trains.
So, whether you come to the area to experience the attractions or to relax. You definitely will be hid away from the crowd when you are staying with us.
I am a West Virginia resident in this area for 20+ years. I have a lovely wife and family that help with the maintenance of the cabin. We enjoy the quiet and the natural beauty of this area. I build cabins similar to this one for people to enjoy that want a place to call their own in the area. I built this cabin new just so you could experience an unforgettable vacation in the mountains!
Kent & Cynthia purchased this cabin in 2008
I chose to build a cabin here because I have lived here all these years and still think it is still one of the best places in the eastern US to get away from it all and recharge your batteries.
We didn't know what to expect when we got there and we were not let down. The cabin was awesome!!! It was secluded, peaceful and relaxing. We found it very clean very convenient and was well worth the money. Loved the country décor, the owners did a great job!! We are looking forward to staying there again in the future.
The cabin is beautiful clean and well-maintained We totally enjoyed our sightseeing which was nearby The restaurant selections in the area are very limited and not particularly good in my opinion other than that it was a real fun trip
Perfect get away for my wife and me. Hard to believe that it is even nicer looking than it appears in the listing. Excellent location for my planned astrophotography. I was able to image the Milky Way above the cabin. Along with a trip to Spruce Knob to make more images of the heaven above. Also, drove down to NRAO in Green Bank to get some images with the GBT under the stars.
My wife really appreciated the total quiet and relaxing surroundings. We will definitely return.
The location is great for any adventures in the MNF.
Also, The Gateway restaurant had delicious home cooked food and desserts.
Nothing but nice things to say about the cabin and the property management. It was easy to rent and very reasonably priced, especially considering the location, the seclusion, and the overall appearance and cleanliness of the cabin. Everything was exactly as described. We would definitely stay again. It is close to Spruce Knob and Spruce Lake and all kinds of wonderful hiking trails. The basics are all there for a lovely stay - just bring your own food & drink, and DVD's if you want to watch any movies (there is no television or cable reception). If you forget anything, the Riverton Mart a few miles away has basic sundries. The Gateway restaurant is a nice little diner and there are a lot of restaurants (and a full-sized grocery store) in nearby Franklin. There is pretty much no cell phone or 3/4G reception for your smart phones and tablets.
We loved the beautiful cabin and also loved watching the sunset on top of Spruce Knob. Can't wait to come back! We had a great time there this past weekend. Just mostly enjoyed the peace and quiet. :)
What a lovely place!!!!! Beautiful, sparkling clean, cozy... the cabin had everything we needed and the owners were awesome, very accommodating, and answered every question. Beautiful location. We love going to the top of spruce knob and looking the stars and we were very close to the top not a real long ride back. We enjoyed walking around the property too, got lots of great pictures. Comfortable bed, we only slept in one though but plenty of room for others if you wished to bring others. Everything to cook with, chairs for outside, even coffee... it ha Everything we needed.
Altogether, it was exactly what we hoped for and very relaxing.
