About Adventures on the Gorge
Nestled on the rim of the New River Gorge, this authentic timber frame home, Martha's Place, was inspired by Martha Gaines Wehrle. Martha was born and raised in Fayette County, West Virginia. As a Congresswoman and Senator, her life's work included caring for and nurturing her home and its residents. Martha's Place was aptly named as it encompassed her strength, her natural beauty and grace, and her endless effort to protect all she loved about her home, West Virginia. Martha's Place is located off the beaten path in Wild Rock, a community whose design guidelines call for the use of long-lifespan materials, such as local lumber and stone. Materials utilized in the construction of this vacation rental home. To leave the lightest environmental footprint possible, Wild Rock also insists on the most efficient use of natural resources. Homes must be oriented in the New River Gorge National Park to take advantage of prevailing winds, sun angles and shade from surrounding vegetation. These home site practices help preserve the natural beauty of the New River Gorge and surrounding area.
Adventures on the Gorge purchased this House in 2008

A beautiful home in a tremendous setting
You will decompress walking in the front door of this perfectly amazing house. It is filled with class and charm. It is comfortable, relaxing and inspiring. They managed to make rustic luxurious. I highly recommend Martha's place for families, friends or work related get-aways. It is an unquestionable five star!
Thank you. We are sho glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will be back soon
Excellent place to get away from it all yet still be convenient. Beautiful house on a great lot overlooking the gorge. Views of the river below and the bridge in the distance. Sleep number beds are perfect for individual comfort and the heated floor downstairs is a nice touch. If you plan to do any serious cooking you may want to bring some of your own gear. All the basics are there, however. Just one minor maintenance item... the freezer in the kitchen was broken but there is a freezer downstairs in the laundry room. We found a note so management was already aware of the issue. The only disappointment is you can't build a fire in the fireplace inside. The outdoor fireplace is fine - just can't use the one inside.
AOTG is great - easy check-in/check-out. Clean, comfortable and quiet home. Will definitely rent again!

What a beautiful home!
The timber frame construction, and especially the beam work, is spectacular. Nicely finished. The kitchen cabinetry is unique and very well done. Views (even in summer) are great. Enjoyed the ready access to the Gorge trail system. Accommodated our group of four couples nicely. We will return. Thanks!
Thank you. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you consider us in the future.
