About the property

Retreat Cottage On Whitewater Stream

This two-bedroom cottage is a funky old country home; is not a lace-doily kind of place. Everything works, and everything is clean, but stylistically it is country hodgepodge. It is the kind of place you can be comfortable bringing your friends, kids, or dogs without walking on tiptoes so as not to disturb anything. If that fits your style, I think you would enjoy it, as well as the beautiful setting next to a whitewater stream. For people who delight in nature, it can be a deeply satisfying place to be.

The cottage is located at Abrams Creek Campground, 3 miles east of Mount Storm, WV. It sits near the entrance to the campground, and is just a few steps away from a wild whitewater stream, and has access to the swim holes at the end of the campground.

The cottage is a two story, two bedroom house with living room, kitchen, dining room, a full bathroom with tub, and washer/dryer. The upstairs bedroom has a queen bed for up to 2 people, a twin day bed, and a twin trundle bed. The main floor includes a bedroom with two sets of bunk beds (4 standard twin beds total). The living room has satellite TV service, high-speed DSL Internet WiFi, a telephone with free long distance calling, and a queen sleep sofa..

My family had an amazing time! We will definitely be staying at this cabin again. Just remember you are staying at a cabin this place is definitely a great place for any outdoors loving family

It is more of a camping cabin.

  • 1 of 5

The linens looked like they were thrown in the cabinets, the double bed was a box spring and mattress on the floor, and the cabin smelled musty and had water damage on the wall in the bathroom. It did not align with the other cabins advertised on this sight. There was an old plate of food in the refrigerator.

Cottage, or backwoods shack?

  • 1 of 5

Sign on the wall as soon as you walk in said "Please remove shoes at door" and of course everyone did but soon put them back on after we walked not even to the bathroom yet and our feet were covered in dirt. The TV didn't work and we had to completely unwire it from the dish box, and outlet and reset it and plug everything back up. Took 20mins of our first hour arrived to get it it work. The fridge smelled and was horribly dirty. The bathtub was so filthy and shower curtain is covered in mold we ended up not even showering while we stayed. Nothing much went on and stayed inside most of the stay. My disabled Mother on crutches fell when she came through door due to rug not having a no slip bottom and the tiny parking place that's available for the cottage is behind the house and makes unloading and loading difficult. 2nd story bedroom staircase has loose boad at the very top last step and bends in when stepped on, Definitely not safe. All together the house was filthy, and very poor looking. Black mold in many places and had many odd closed unaccessible doors locked from the inside that made us uncomfortable

The property itself was inhabitable! The owners and staff very accommodating but the smells alone with the mildew and sewage made the stay miserable. We left one day early.

Owner's Response: The guest did not make us aware of the problem until they were leaving. Once we knew about it, we took care of it immediately, and authorized a refund for the short stay.
