Oak Mountain Hollow Lodge is a secluded modern-yet-rustic, clean and comfortable full-sized log home on nearly 50 undeveloped private acres. Located at the end of a private lane, the home sits 1/3 mile away from the road and other houses, with no traffic, no other nearby houses or buildings, nature is at the doorstep. Enjoy the natural views of woodlands, hills, fields and wildlife from all the windows and the spacious main deck and private master deck complete with outdoor furniture, umbrella, hot tub, grill, and wild bird feeders. The location is secluded yet not too remote, an easy 10-mile drive to Elkins or 3 miles to the charming town of Historical Beverly, within an hour of Snowshoe, a bit closer to Canaan Valley or Timberline resort/ski areas, nearby to fishing, hiking, hunting, National and State Forest, Historical Sites, scenic back roads, Davis & Elkins College, and all area activities!

This home is cooled with ceiling fans in nearly every room, natural breezes (all windows have screens, screen doors on 3 levels, and a master-bedroom air conditioner. For a cozy Winter, Fall or early Spring visit, the lodge features electric baseboard heat, a wood-burning fireplace, and woodstove (please inquire about availability of firewood). The water is clean and from a public water supply. There are books, indoor and outdoor games, CDs and DVDs onsite. The modern kitchen is fully-equipped and has many extras.

Our prices are West Virginia - friendly, and cover up to 4 guests. There is a fully-refundable $100 security deposit collected on all rentals. Your well-behaved dog is welcome at no extra charge (please inquire if you have more than one dog) and the deck is gated, the backyard fenced, as well as an extra-large pet crate on the premises. A friendly outdoor cat resides at the cabin, and we request guests to feed him once a day (food is provided)-- if this is a problem please let us know so we can make alternate arrangements for the kitty during your stay. The location is complete with private, natural walking paths adjacent to the home, one woodland trail and one open-field wildflower trail.

Please check with us if your group excedes 6 guests ( but no more than 8 ).

Why Teresa McElroy chose West Virginia

This is such a naturally beautiful area, the perfect retreat from hectic city life, somewhere to relax and enjoy the peaceful natural surroundings, listen to the birds and the wind in the trees, gaze at the stars, view wildlife, watch the seasons change...there is beauty and solitude in every season here.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin/home offers complete privacy and seclusion, yet is not too remote for enjoying off-site activities. The property features private walking trails and an outdoor fire pit, a small creek runs near the edge of the acreage, and there is a variety of terrain to enjoy, hills, flat areas, woodlands and open wildflower fields.

Mostly nice cabin...

  • 3 of 5

I would agree with most of the reviews - the cabin was very secluded, private and peaceful. The main floor was very updated and comfortable with the living area, kitchen and dining room. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked, from cooking utensils and appliances to spices. The master was in the loft as stated, and was large and very comfortable. My husband and I decided to bring a mini inflatable bed for our 6 year old daughter in case it was hot so she could sleep in the master bedroom since it has A/C. Good thing, because it was not stated that the other 2 bedrooms were in the basement, which would have put her 2 floors down from us. I really think the description should state where the bedrooms are located - that may be a deal breaker to parents of young kids like us. The basement was a little claustrophobic - low ceilings and very small bedrooms. I would not have wanted to sleep down there. Unlike others who raved about the deck, we did not spend time there because the deck bows significantly down the entire length - we looked underneath at how the substructure was built and it scared us, especially with a hot tub on it. It looks like it has withstood the test of time, but I did not trust it.

Secluded Mountain Lodge--Good Times!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this secluded mountain lodge. The spacious kitchen, loft and deck were very inviting. The house was away from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. Although we were there during the West Virginia flooding, the owners kept the gravel access road clear and maintained...we appreciated that. Plus there is a friendly cabin kitty...we loved that cat!! The owner was very professional to deal with.

Bucolic home in the Mountains!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a peaceful getaway from our busy lives in New Jersey and boy did we find it. This beautifully located home in the woods was just perfect. From the minute we arrived we had everything we needed in the home. Large family gathering space inside and out on the deck, spotless interior and well stocked kitchen with all the dishes, cooking utensils and cookware one would need . We have been home for 24 hours and already miss our "little cabin in the woods" Thank you Teresa! We will be back.

Consistently lovely

  • 4 of 5

We always enjoy our visits to this cabin each year with family, and this time we were happy to bring friends who had never been to West Virginia to come, grill on the porch, make s'mores at the fire pit, hike by day and enjoy the stars by night. Our two city dogs become so quiet and watchful here, preferring to be outside staring into the woods or collapsed happily in the sunshine. We were able to sleep eight no problem, with plenty of linens and blankets and towels for all. The guys fished each morning not far away, one morning even successfully. Stores are close enough by that when the teens eat everything we can restock as needed. But my favorite thing about this cabin is the wrap around porch - allows for yoga, book reading, drinks and socializing as the time allows. We always appreciate how warmly we are welcomed and hate to leave!

fireplace sceen

  • 5 of 5

We don't know what happened to the fireplace screen. It became wobbly each time the fire was worked. We would not be offended it you kept the deposit to apply to a new screen.

Owner's Response: It was not a problem, we have replaced it. It was by no means new and probably just got worn out. We have refunded this guest's s/d in full, but their offer was very thoughtful.

Total Privacy

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay. It was quiet and secluded. Enjoyed watching the deer graze and listening to the birds. Even our little Pug dog seemed more relaxed. The decor and cabin were much nicer than the pictures can relate. I thought it would be a rustic cabin in the woods. I was so surprised to see how modern, up to date and beautiful it was. My husband and I just smiled at each other and said how lucky we were to find such a gem. It was the most relaxing, quiet vacation we have ever had.
