Children and adults are thrilled to sit on the deck and watch the trains go by. There is a railroad crossing at the bottom of the hill and you will hear train whistles throughout the day and night, which may be loud and disruptive. Across the road and the railroad tracks is the beautiful Greenbrier River, great for fishing, tubing and swimming. There is public access for launching your boat, canoe, raft or kayak within walking distance from the house. Enjoy John Henry Days in July and watch the parade from the wraparound deck as it makes its turn.
It is a short 15-30 minute drive to Pipestem State Park and Bluestone Lake and State Park and Greenbrier State Park to the east. Stay here and attend The Greenbrier Classic, one of the PGA's finest golf tournaments held annually at the historic Greenbrier Hotel in White Sulphur Springs, a short drive away. Play golf where the pros play at several other area golf courses. Attend the West Virginia State Fair in August.
This area is good for all seasons. Watch the West Virginia Hills change from lush green to glorious shades of red and gold in the Fall. Short 35 minute drive to Winterplace and 1 1/2 hour drive to Snowshoe Mountain for skiers and snowboarders. Celebrate holidays with friends and family.

Perfect Winter Getaway
The house on the hill was perfect for our winter getaway. It had everything we needed and we loved the location. We enjoyed the scenic drive to stores and restaurants. The house was only about a 45 minute drive to Winter Place for a day of skiing and snow tubing. One morning we had the pleasure of watching 2 deer venture down the hill out back all the way to within a few feet of the house.
For those of you clean freaks, we found the house to be the cleanest vacation home we've ever rented. We would love to return in the summer sometime to explore the area in warmer weather!
Thank you for your review of your stay Up On The Hill. We are happy that you enjoyed your visit. It is our pleasure to share our home and make new friends. Thank you also for respecting our house rules and leaving our home so neat. We look forward to hosting your family for a return visit.
Great stay On The Hill
We stayed On The Hill over Labor Day weekend and we really enjoyed it. The house was well furnished with necessities and luxuries. It served our needs above and beyond. Hope to stay there again next year!! Thank you Sue Ray!!!
Thank you for your review. It was our pleasure to host your visit and we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to your return visit next year. Head, Heart, Hands & Health!! Sue
This property was beautiful and in a great location for us. My family owns property on the Greenbriar but for occasions like John Henry Days in Talcott, the cabin can get a little crowded so having this house available was wonderful. The view of the mountains in the morning is breathtaking and the very short walk to the river is wonderful. We loved it and plan to book again. I have two suggestions, one there needs to be a first aid kit somewhere as well as directions for rebooting the router. Again, great location for us and we will be back.
Thank you for taking the time to review our house. It's great to hear someone who appreciates the beauty surrounding the Greenbrier river, as we do. We will take your suggestions and add the first aid kit in the bathroom and will add rebooting info in our guest information notebook. Thanks again and we look forward to your next visit.
We enjoyed our stay up on the hill. The neighbors couldnt have been nicer! Was perfect for the 4 of us to stay at! Thank you!
Thank you for your feedback and review and thank you for staying Up On The Hill. We appreciate you and hope that you will come back for a return visit.
Very clean, all the necessary amenities, perfect place for a fishing trip or time on the river.
We had a great time. Big bang for your buck! Even the grill was clean. Well stocked. Great place for a trip on the river.
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. We hope you will visit with us again soon. Thank you!
Charming little house
This house had everything we needed for a long weekend fishing trip. Driveway was a little step and 4 wheel drive was helpful to prevent tearing up the gravel too much, but that is part of the charm of this part of West Virginia.
