It inflates in less than 4 minutes and deflates just as quickly.

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. 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

Why Adventures on the Gorge chose West Virginia

Fayette County, West Virginia is home of the famed New River (one of America's National Heritage Rivers) and the New River Gorge Bridge (the longest steel arch bridge in the western hemisphere).

Martha's Place is centrally located in the New River Gorge National Park to give you access to hundreds of miles of trails, scenic overlooks, drives and diverse flora and fauna.

However, if adventure sports are more your game, Martha's Place is within walking distance to Adventures on the Gorge,

What makes this house unique

With Civil War-era historic sites and a quaint sophistication in dining and the arts, Martha's Place is centrally located to allow you and your family to enjoy almost any amenity you can dream, whether its an adventure, a day of golf, shopping or relaxing.

If you're looking for a vacation rental, Martha's Place is just for you. This timber frame home is centrally located to allow families and friends to bond with nature and the land she called home, West Virginia.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We couldn't have asked for a better house to ring in the new year! Every detail in this house is beautiful - you can tell how much thought and love went into it. The location, the view, everything about this place is ideal. Thank you for opening your home to us -- a group of friends who have been close for over 25 years and are thankful for the opportunity to travel from different states to spend quality time together. The children enjoyed our time here as much as the adults. We look forward to this becoming a memorable tradition. Thank you. Thank You.

What a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

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!
