Tom and Gail,
Our vacation was everything we hoped for. The chalet was very clean, comfortable and relaxing. We really enjoyed the hot tub. We had alot of deer as our daily visitors. We went on day trips to Smokehole Caverns, Seneca Rocks and Lost River State Park. The scenery along Rte.55 was really great. When we return to the area we would definately stay at the chalet again. Thank you for everything.

you, we would like to use this email as a review in homeaway. Tom and Gail
We spent the week of Thanksgiving 2015 in Tom and Gail.s chalet and it was wonderful. The cabin comes with all the bells and whistles and the weather was perfect. Our grandson spent alot of time fishing trout at Rock Cliff lake about 15 miles away and our daughter and husband enjoyed many hiking excursions at Lost River state park. Our little Pug loved running after the black bunnies and squirrels around the chalet. A great place to stay and get away from it all.
My wife and I had a great getaway weekend here for our anniversary! It is the perfect distance away "from it all", but not so far away from a good restaurant or a day adventure. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! You can relax in the hot tub and watch the stars (virtually no light pollution). Pet friendly! Plenty of wildlife, though we missed out on seeing black bears. If you go in the fall, there is beautiful foliage. Plenty of peace and quiet!
My wife and our two kids (ages 3 and 1) had a great time in this chalet. It was exaclty as advertised and very, very clean! This chalet and its surroundings really gave us a great feeling of West Virginia. When driving the winding rural roads to the cabin, we encountered deer on multiple occasions. Sitting outside we could sometimes hear the gun shots from hunters echoing from the mountains. We loved that sound, because being from a European country where the outdoors is either non-existent or overcrowded and hunting is pretty much banned, this gave us the feeling of being in the land of the free! The most wonderful things were the stars during clear nights. Absolutely amazing! We made some nice trips to Seneca Rocks (nice 3 mile hike) and Blackwater Falls State Park. But just sitting outside on the porch is wonderful enough! We loved this cabin and we love West Virginia! God Bless America!
My 2 kids and I had the nicest weekend at your cabin. It was clean, quiet, cozy and just what was promised! It was just the right size for the 3 of us. The bottle of wine was really sweet of you, thank you for leaving it. I would recommend going to the market before heading to the cabin, as it's a little farther than expected. There were books, games, and cards for the evening. We visited Smoke Hole Caverns, about an hour away. We stopped into the Trading Post to look around as well. I know I appreciated the basket of pamphlets of things to do in the area, as well as the binder you left. We absolutely plan to come back.
Tom and Gail's chalet was perfect for our weekend getaway. There were four adults in our group. We hadn't planned to arrive after dark, but the provided directions were good and our GPS also found it. The place was well-equipped and well-maintained. We didn't do much cooking during our stay but enjoyed morning coffee on the screened porch. We went to the "Bluegrass in the Barn" monthly concert at the nearby Capon Crossing Farm on Saturday and enjoyed hamburgers from their Farm Market. We were lucky to have two clear and moonless nights for watching the meteor showers and star gazing from the hot tub. We had a great time and highly recommend this place to friends and family.
This was a "get away from it all" vaca for my husband and I and another couple. The chalet was PERFECT!! Clean, modern, no noise and Tom and Gail were extremely helpful in making arrangements. If you want privacy, calm and relaxation this is THE place! The beds were comfy, hot tub was magic and we had no problems with the satellite, internet, anything! We will definitely be back but will bring our boys and in laws and spend some time at the lake!
The chalet is located in scenic southern Hardy County, WV, near the George Washington National Forest and the Lost River State Park. A short walk takes you to the Warden Lake Nature Preserve and the beautiful 44 acre lake. It's an ideal area to enjoy hiking, biking, hunting, canoeing, fishing, skiing or just relaxing amidst nature's beauty. The proximity of the cities of Baltimore, Washington and Richmond (around a 3 hour drive) makes this location an ideal weekend retreat!
