Best affordable access to Spruce Knob Seneca Rocks area.
Looking for a nice get away that won't break the bank, and that is close to some of the best of West Virginia?
We just created the perfect place for you! Brand new for spring 2014. Another clean, inexpensive place to call your home away from home.
We are on the road to Spruce Knob and just 15 minutes from Seneca Rocks.
The cabin has comfortable sleeping for up to 4 a small kitchenette with a hot plate, microwave, and refrigerator.
There is a full bath and a queen bed in the bedroom. For extra sleeping space there is a sleep sofa in the living area. Outside you will find a great country style front porch to enjoy nature from, and just relax and let the world go by. There is also a fire pit, and a picnic table because what vacation to the mountains is complete without a campfire, and some outside picnicking. The property borders the national forest so hiking and all the other things that you like to do in nature are right outside your door.
Reserve you next dose of stress relief now!

Secluded and Serene on Spruce Knob
The cabin is charming, clean and cozy with a bedroom outfitted with a queen-sized bed and a sofa sleeper in the common area. Both are comfortable. The covered front porch, furnished with Adirondack-style chairs, was the perfect spot for gazing across the valley to the opposite ridge line. The kitchen area has all of the basics you need for casual cooking, but don't expect a range or oven. A dorm fridge, microwave, hotplate and large sink suffice for almost any meal prep. The full bathroom is modern and immaculate. Towels, sheets and blankets are plentiful. The road to the cabin is well maintained, but keep in mind that the cabin isn't a short hop from an Interstate - you'll drive through beautiful country to get there, and depending on the route you choose, you'll get plenty of mountain driving experience.
We found absolutely nothing to complain about.
Take a few minutes to read the guest book. The stories left by people who have stayed in the cabin are fun, funny and occasionally silly.
If you're in the area for sightseeing, drive to the top of Spruce Knob, head to Seneca Rocks or take the tour of the enormous Green Bank telescopes. The surrounding valleys are full of historical sites commemorating early settlers and participants in the Revolutionary and Civil wars. Venture into Smoke Hole and imagine what life was like for the people who braved setting up their households in a wild and rugged canyon.
Oh, and make sure you drink the tap water. It's cold, pure and perfectly refreshing.
Thank you for the detailed review. There are many things in the area to experience. It is always interesting to hear what our guest enjoyed.
You may find interesting that the tap water comes from a 1000 ft deep well close to the cabin.
So very relaxing!
So peaceful and quiet! No cellphones, no tv; just the forest sounds.
The directions on the website were really easy to follow and the signs along the way were greatly appreciated.
The cabin was super clean and the shower had good water pressure!
Will definitely comeback and have already recommended it to many friends!
Everything you need
Lovely clean cabin, good location to both Spruce Knob, Seneca Rocks, and 30-60 min drive to countless other attractions.
Thank you for coming and enjoying our area. We love sharing it with others!
Perfect for 2
The cabin was very quiet and peaceful! Extremely clean and perfect for 2. Its a great way to get away from the fast paces of life with no wifi, no cell service or tv to distract you from the ones u love! Bring a nice book puzzle or games and just enjoy the company your with. The only complaints we had was that this is not a dog welcoming cabin no pets allowed. And The hot water was not very hot the first person to take a 10 min shower used it all up but even then was just above warm the second person to shower is lucky to have it luke warm before it get cold. But I must say it is some of the coldest and best tasting tap water I've had. Don't expect to spend alot of time cooking for it only has a hot plate and microwave but who needs to do alot with the great restaurant The Gateway down the road.
All in all we were happy to spend a few days for our Anniversary at this cabin and def plan to spend more.!!
Thanks for a great experience

Thank you for the honest review including the report on the lack of hot water. We can very easy miss something like that since we do not live there. We made some adjustments to the temperature so hopefully future guests will find the shower more adequate.. Hope you can come again soon!
Cabin was great, very, very clean and comfortable.
Cabin was just far enough away to really enjoy the beautiful forest but close enough to the caverns you don’t spend your whole day traveling.
Beautiful Little Cabin - Wonderful Location
Great little cabin. The pictures don't do it justice, it seemed so much nicer in person. great location at the foot of Spruce Knob and right down the road to Seneca Rocks. This part of WV is a little slice of heaven.
Thanks for your review. We try to have good pictures but we are happy you found it better than expected. Hope you can come again sometime!
Our property is located in the Spruce Knob Seneca Rocks recreation area. While you are here don't miss a hike to the top of Seneca Rocks, and the grand view of the valley below. A short scenic drive and a very short walk takes you to the observation tower on Spruce Knob. There are a couple caverns in the area open for tours. There is great trout fishing in the area and much more. If you are up to the adventure Nelson Rocks area offers guided climbing for the inexperienced as well as the seasoned mountaineer. They also have Zip lines to add to the fun. Within a one hour drive we also have access to several ski resorts including Canaan Valley and Timberline. Also within an hour is Cass Scenic Railway, Blackwater Falls and more. Of course if you want to stay put and relax at the cabin we are back far enough in the woods for plenty of peace and quiet, and there is plenty of national forest to hike in right around the cabin. So leave the stress at home and come enjoy real mountain relaxation.
