Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

All new, inside and out!

Enjoy our log cabin with views of the West Virginia mountains. If you want to stay in a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle, but also want easy access to a number of activities, this is the place to stay. The cabin is located in Slatyfork, two miles from the four season resort of Snowshoe Mountain.

Maximum occupancy is 6 with no more than 4 adults.

The cabin sleeps six in three queen size beds with one bedroom and a cozy loft.

Bring only clothes/toiletries and food! This cabin has everything you need: full kitchen, sheets, towels, paper and cleaning products(not personal toiletries), and a porch with mountain views.

Play golf at the Gary Player designed Raven Golf Course, voted #1 Public Access Golf Course in West Virginia for the fourth year in a row. Enjoy a walk through Slatyfork Farm development adjoining our property. We love our pets and understand you may want to bring your pet on your vacation. We are pet-friendly; just tell us type and number of pets you are bringing. Linens and cleaning upon departure are included in our rates.

There is a small grocery store, gas and unique shopping one mile from the cabin. Four wheel drive recommended in the winter, but we are right off well-maintained Highway 219 leading to Snowshoe.

Seasonal Activities nearby(please check with vendors schedules before your visit to ensure availability): Skiing, Snowboarding, Snowmobiling, Snowshoeing, Cross Country Skiing, Hiking, Rock Climbing, Biking, Golf at Raven Golf Course, Snowshoe’s Outpost Adventure with BMX Track, Sporting Clays and Climbing Wall.

One of the most popular recreational activities in Pocahontas County is fishing. Eight Rivers (Cheat, Cherry, Cranberry, Elk, Gauley, Greenbrier, Tygart Valley, Williams) and countless streams originate in the area.

Take a scenic ride on the Cass railroad(check seasonal schedule and buy tickets ahead because they book up quickly), mountain bike, hike, fish, bike the Greenbrier River Trail or float the Greenbrier River. Visit the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, Lost World Caverns, Falls of Hill Creek, Droop Mountain State Park, Beartown State Park, Watoga State Park and Seneca State Forest.

Nationally recognized, the Highland Scenic Highway, is a must see. Cutting across Monongahela National Forest, this 43-mile route, much of which follows Rte. 150, the highest major road in the state- provides dramatic views of the Allegheny Highlands. This scenic byway, accessible from April through November (weather permitting) begins just south of Slatyfork and travels through hardwood forests to Richwood.

Along the way, you’ll find wildlife, waterfalls, 150 miles of hiking trails, and the 36,000 acre Cranberry Bogs Wilderness Area and Visitors Center. The county is home to two other nationally recognized scenic byways as well that are accessible year-round.

About Chrissie Burriss

Our family, including our daughter, son and daughter-in-law, loves to ski. We also love coastal living in our home of Savannah,GA. Since we rarely get snow, we started visiting West Virginia to enjoy snow and skiing. After visiting the area during other seasons, we realized that we loved West Virginia year-round. We bought our home with plans of renting it out to visitors. We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to enjoy the cabin and share it with others. Visit soon in any season and enjoy all West Virginia has to offer from the comfort of our cabin!

Chrissie Burriss purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Chrissie Burriss chose West Virginia

Our cabin is conveniently located to enjoy all activities in the area.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy our location in the mountains since we are from a coastal region.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Chrissie! We're just back home!! We had a wonderful, wonderful stay in your lovely cabin. I took my dog for a walk each morning in the lovely field with the wild flowers blooming, and I felt like I found a slice of heaven!









Thanks again!

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was well appointed. You really do just need food and company. The rest is there! Very clean and perfect size for a small group. Pet friendly blanket was available for our dog. The loft space was very nice for our two kids.

The owners were very nice to work with and helpful with info about the area. I would recommend this cabin for anyone wanting a place close to Snowshoe that is just down the mountain. Convenient location off of 219, so it's quick getting back on the road to head to various places.

Awesome weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was wonderful. We enjoyed the views, nice walks, and even had a little sunshine to sit out on the balcony. Chrissie was wonderful in answering my e-mails since the day we were traveling they were calling for snow. She kept us updated on how the roads were and even called me on our way down to let us know we wouldn't have any problems with the driveway. It was a wonderful, relaxing weekend!

Lovely Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this lovely cabin! From the very moment we opened the door, we felt at home. The cabin was made superb not only by the brilliant architectural design and pleasant decor, but also by the comfortable furniture and bedding, as well as the well supplied, kitchen, bathroom, and laundry area. The seamless booking process only served to make our stay that much more enjoyable.

The cabin owners clearly take great pride in their cabin and put a great deal of effort into making it inviting for their renter guests.

This cabin was a large part of our wonderful and memorable family ski trip. We hope to have an opportunity to stay at your cabin in the future.

Perfect Cabin GetAway

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Mtn. Mama for a second time- this time now newly refurbished and redecorated and it was wonderful! The cabin is comfortable, cozy, lovely, and perfectly accommodating. It had everything we needed. I love how the space has been utilized and lighted after the redesign. The atmosphere is perfect. We love to take a walk around the roads by Mtn. Mama- the immediate area is so beautiful. It's a love.

Owner's Response: On Jan 9 2017, our cabin suffered a severe fire due to some negligent young guests. This is the last kind review of our original cabin. The cabin has been rebuilt from the foundation up. It now has HVAC and a water filtration system in addition to all new everything! The cabin became available for rental again in mid-October 2017. We hope future guests will enjoy our new cabin!
