About Carter Zerbe
Carter is a lifelong resident of West Virginia. Maureen has lived in the state for more than 35 years.
Why Carter Zerbe chose Marlinton
The cottage is located on the Greenbrier River, one of the premier fishing and paddling streams in West Virginia. It is at the end of a long driveway, surrounded by trees and foliage. This a studio - style setup: there is one large room with a sleeping area (queen bed), living area with a fireplace, kitchen, and bathroom. It has WiFi, but no cell phone serviceor land line. You can drive a few miles into Hillsboro or Marlinton if you want to use your cell phone. We bought this property because of its unique location on one of the most beautiful, family-friendly rivers in West Virginia, offering fishing, paddling, tubing, swimming, biking and hiking. Pocohontas County is one of the outdoor friendly places in West Virginia. We are minutes away from hiking/backpacking trains, mountain streams, waterfalls and wildlife. On the property itself, you may encounter deer, raccoons, turkeys, squirrels, chipmunks, and very occasionally, a black bear. The Greenbrier River is home to beaver, trout, bass, otters, bald eagles, blue herons, ospreys. Songbirds are plentiful. The property is minutes away from Cranberry Glades, a unique Canada-like ecosystem with plants typically only found in northern climates. The Glades are part of the Cranberry Backcountry which provides multiple hiking and backpacking opportunities. The Greenbrier River Trail runs nearly the length of the Greenbrier River. We often see hikers and bikers on the trail while swimming. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, our place is for you!

Wonderful wilderness getaway
We were very interested in biking the Greenbriar River Trail and this popped up. It is very convenient to the trail just south of Marlinton, WV. Our host, Carter Zerbe was very welcoming and helpful. The cabin itself is lovely: lots of light, very secluded and quiet right on the Greenbrier River. Highly recommended.😁 PS The Greenbrier Trail itself is fabulous.
We wanted to get away for our first wedding anniversary and this place was perfect. No cell phones, no tv and no internet. Cabin was great. Mr. Zerbe was very welcoming and helpfu.
Quiet peaceful getaway.
The cabin is very nice but on the small side. We arrived earlier than expected and the owners made every attempt to accommodate us. They are warm and friendly and offered us free use of their floatation devices if we wanted to go down the river. There is no TV or cell phone service and the wifi worked for about 5 minutes over the course of 6 days. If you like being unconnected this is the place for you. You can go in town to the local watering holes for wifi if needed. We were out all day riding bikes on the spectacular Greenbrier River Trail which is nearby. The river and trail are very scenic. We were lucky enough to see two Black Bears and dozens of Deer and an assortment of birds, while on the trail. We would certainly go back again.
Remote location, a tidy and simple oasis!
Happy to experience the tranquility of this remote tiny cabin near the Greenbrier River.
Great location and value
Great location for biking and river sports. A good value.
Access to the Greenbrier River Trail at Buckeye is about 3 miles north of the cottage, and at Seebert, about 3 miles south of the cottage.
Cranberry Glades and back country, in the Monongahela National Forest, is a 15 minute drive from the cottage, with numerous hiking and cross-country skiing trails.
There are several beautiful trout streams in the area, including the Williams, Cranberry and Cherry Rivers as well as Knapps Creek, Dunlap's Creek, and others.
Day trips to Lewisburg, WV, voted one of America's coolest small towns with fabulous restaurants and shops. Also an hour from Warm Springs,VA, home of the famous mineral baths built by Thomas Jefferson, with two very good restaurants.
