About Matt & Shannon Dean
We have lived in the New River Gorge area for over 25 years. After living in a number of places, we knew this was where we wanted to settle. The mountains have always held a special place in each of our hearts.
Matt & Shannon Dean purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Matt & Shannon Dean chose Hico
We love the outdoors and nature and when we saw this property it appealed to both of us. Even though the previous owners recently timbered the 83-acre tract, we envision creating a new forest with a variety of trees and foraging plants to create a unique habitat. Our plans also include developing hiking trails throughout the forest for many to enjoy.
What makes this Cabin unique
Upon seeing the property for the first time, we loved the landscaping. The flowers and plants are beautiful, not to mention the great woods behind the cabin. There is a large field directly in front of the cabin - great for playing. The front porch is very inviting and the inside of the cabin is cozy. One of the main features that we particularly like is the wonderful glass enclosed back porch overlooking the forest. We anticipate families gathering here playing games, reading and just relaxing. The ultimate benefit is the expanse of woods behind the cabin. We hope our guests will enjoy the trails and wildlife.

Very enjoyable getaway with friends.
We recently rented the Teays Cabin. The New River Gorge area is very beautiful with lots of outdoor activities to explore. Although the cabin is close to the highway, it is very secluded, private and spacious. It is an easy ride to Fayetteville where there are several good restaurants.
The cabin is very clean and well equipped with lots of extras.
We especially appreciated the basket of goodies and the breakfast fixings left for us in the refrigerator. Thanks for sharing this lovely cabin.
The Best Cabin Ever
How Mike and Shannon prepare this cabin for their guests was way beyond our expectation. The amazing welcome basket, so very well stocked kitchen and laundry room (they have everything and SO MUCH MORE it is amazing)... I have stayed at many VRBO properties in the past, but this one by far made me feel the best. Thank you, Mike and Shannon 💛�
There are not enough words to express how delighted our party of 8 was with the cabin. Very clean. Exactly as description. They left all the goodies described in other reviews. The s'mores were delicious by the fire pit. The hot tub was clean and ready. There were plenty of towels, extra sheets for porch futon and couch in living room. Good books!
10 minutes to New & Gauley River Adventures where we did the Lower New Rive trip. Excellent by the way. We weren't lacking for anything in the kitchen. Everything you could possibly need to feed A Lot of people, if you need to.
My family was impressed by the choice. I just read the reviews and figured it must be alright. It is fabulous!
They think of everything and had an amazing gift basket and food ready for us. Thought of every detail.
Great Family Memory at Black Bear Springs!
When searching for properties online, you never really know if you’re getting what posted pictures capture. However, I was drawn to the pics of Black Bear Springs and the many positive reviews. I was happy to find that it lived up to the pics and more! From the moment we walked in, we were in love with this cabin! Seven brothers and sisters were looking for a cabin close to our pick up point for a whitewater rafting trip! There was plenty of room for all of us, and enough seats at the table for us to enjoy breakfast and dinners together! It was very peaceful, with a wonderful wooded area out back. I had great communication with Matt and Shannon before and during the stay. When we arrived, the fridge had been stocked with breakfast items, and chips, salsa, s’mores fixings, and a welcome greeting was left on the counter and message board. Matt and Shannon really made the place feel like our temporary home away from home! We were able to relax, laugh, be together and enjoy a great family adventure! We couldn’t be more grateful to have stayed in such a lovely place! Thanks Matt and Shannon for the vision of creating a peaceful and giving home for yourselves, and for others to enjoy!
The Booth Family
What a wonderful home to stay at during our mini-vacation. We only had 2 nights and wish we could have stayed longer.
The owners have thought of everything -- and then added surprises (like fresh fruit, juice, eggs, and much more)! Didn't have time to enjoy the fire pit, but the smores supplies looked so tempting.
The owners were not only responsive, but proactive to make sure our stay was perfect.
Hoping to do the Lower Gauley next fall -- so we will be back!
Thanks for everything!
