I would recommend staying here if you are visiting nearby or in Elkins. The owners were very accommodating with my schedule and made every effort to make our Thanksgiving plans a success. All my family, especially the grandchildren, enjoyed their stay.

Spent a pleasant winter weekend at the cottage. Clean and convenient, easy drive to Canaan Valley for sledding and snow fun with the kids. Owners are very helpful and pleasant. Only caution: if visiting in the winter and snow/ice are present, make sure to have four-wheel drive to make it up to the cottage. I thankfully did and had no problem. I highly recommend the cottage.

Owner's Response: As we tell everyone who responds in the winter, four wheel drive is highly recommended for our hill. The road is well maintained so driving on it with four wheel drive is safe, but a two wheel drive could be problamatic if there is snow on the ground.

Grannies Get a Way

  • 5 of 5

We three grannies traveled to the Buchannon area for the annual yard sale event. We chose to stay in Elkins and was glad we did. We are hooked on Cottages/Cabins and this one fit our needs perfectly. The Cottage was clean and comfortable with a very relaxing feel to it. We enjoyed our evening at the Gandy DinnerTheater and hope to come back in November for the Christmas performance. For three ladies who can get lost in a parking lot, this location was perfect. The Cottage was close to everything we needed but far enough out to enjoy the nature surrounding it. So grannies or those needing a girls weekend, give this place a try, You will be glad you did.

Owner's Response: We agree that Elkins is a great hub for surrounding communities. People visiting from all over this region can stay in the our little cabin while they enjoy this mountain town. There are many things to do, see, and explore. We are thankful these three gave us the opportunity to enhance their visit.

Oh the West Virginia Hills

  • 5 of 5

How Majestic and how grand. We loved our Elkins get a way with family from Charleston. It was a welcome change from the heat of Alabama. Your rental was clean and beautiful and close to the AHT for biking. We also enjoyed concerts at Augusta, the picking in the park, and the American Mountain Theater. It was great to come home to comfort and space for two couples in your lovely cabin. Thanks for sharing with us.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed our home in the hills. The climate in Elkins is very mild in the summer with temperatures seldom rising above 90 degrees. The low humidity that is common here allows you to cool off in the shade of our front porch even if it does get that hot. Also the activities mentioned can be done in the shade or air conditioning as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. On the day of their arrival, there was a problem with the range that was attended to promptly by our caring staff. We went out of our way to insure there was no interruption in their visit. We are so happy we could fix the problem and get them enjoying our cottage in the hills.
