Webster Springs (Addison) house description

Fly fish the fabulous Elk River and its back fork then come back to your stunning mountain cabin to crystal clean air and the best-tasting spring water on earth, and mountain-top views set within a gorgeous hardwood forest on 18 acres with no fencing. Lumber companies conveniently left a great 1 mile gravel road from the main highway 15 and the surrounding virgin forest creates utter privacy.

Summer sightings include deer and fawns, squirrels, birds and fields of butterflies. When our children were young they'd roof-watch the wildlife that didn't come into the clearing, and the on-site blueberries in summer and apples in the fall ensure bear and cub sightings nearby.

Only 45 minutes to Snow Shoe for high life, or about the same from Elkins. Wander the West Virginia-priced (inexpensive) antique shops with terrific finds, or find some weekend mountain music at the many heritage weekends, where relations near and far visit for a town family reunion.


Remind yourself and the kids how life was ''back when.''

The cabin (called a ''camp'' in the mountains) was lovingly hand-crafted from 26 kinds of timber by a master carpenter. There is central air, radiant heating if you'd rather, a grill and smoker, unlimited hard line calls, a new television with satellite, a washer/dryer/microwave, games, and plenty of books for reading during your stay.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1984

                      About the owner: We bought the house in 1980 and the five kids love it, but as they started having families on thier own and moved away we decided to rent the house out in 2008. I have a hotel management background so we have really enjoyed getting to know guests on a better basis than a one-night stay, especially the people who come year after year and the guest comments ... we made the right decision to share the family experience.

                      Why the Owner Chose Webster Springs (Addison):
                      great fly fishing

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We have rituals -- food is cheap, time stretches, the porch is huge and the television doesn't get turned on. We play Country & Western music, get up early for fly fishing or hunting, then just sit lazily and talk or play board games ... the pace is part of the fun.
