                  Nola's House is located in beautiful and historic Pocahontas County with varied outdoor sports, scenic vistas, historic sites and awesome state parks. I would highly recommend Bear Town, Droop Mountain, Watoga and Seneca State Parks.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1902

                  About the owner: My brothers and I grew up in this house, as did my father's family before us. We love the feel of going back home, as you will when you return again and again! Although we were all transplanted to neighboring states, West Virginia is in our blood. If you like a slower pace, a small town with varied activities for different ages and friendly folks , you will love Nola's House in Marlinton.

                  Why the Owner Chose Marlinton:
                  This house is being shared by my family for your family. We have hosted family and high school class reunions and varied holiday celebrations; Christmas is still 'Christmas' here for my family, snow or not!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We enjoy visiting all of the sites we loved growing up and reliving the times we roamed the hills and streams in and out of town. Family friends are close by and will assist you, as well. Come Home to Nola's House!
