We had a great time in Marlinton and Nola's house was a great place to stay. There were five adults in our group. The house had everything we needed (pots pans dishes sheets towels) and the owner provided all the details we needed ahead of time. The owner has people right in Marlinton available to help you if you needed anything or had questions about the area. We cooked at home and also went out to dinner on the town (lLocust Hill Pub was amazing). We had family fun nights in the cozy house (with lots of room for everyone) and we were happy to return there after a day out visiting the sights (Cass Railroad, Greenbrier trail, Radio telescope, Droop battlefield and lots more). The rich history of the family and the town is evident at Nola's house, and we were glad to find such a comfortable place to stay. And as a side note, it was nice to take a break from everything with no cell phone service, but I was glad to have the wifi at the house when I needed to check back in with the world. The locals in town were very friendly as well. The house is located in town so we walked to the grocery store and farmers market, the greenbrier trail, and restaurants. The area is very beautiful. The weather was pretty cool when we were there and we even had to run the heat one night during the beginning of our stay. Overall, we had a fantastic vacation in Marlinton and at Nola's house.

Owner response: Sarah, I am so happy that you and your family came to our house and had such a great time! It always makes us happy to know that others enjoy their time here as we did and do! Sally
This was a perfect place for our whole family (4 separate family units in all) to stay for our annual family reunion in the area! There was plenty of room for everyone and sleeping conditions were comfortable. It was nice to have a home, instead of hotel rooms, for our toddlers to play in and the adults to relax at when not at the "reunion festivities". Plus we enjoyed the opportunity to all stay together for the weekend.

My husband, sons & I have stayed in Nola's House twice & loved it both times! The ambiance of the house is that of going back to times when life was simpler, the pace was slower, the demands much less. We felt like we were part of the family there. The town is charming with the river close by. I especially enjoyed the Greenbrier Biking Trail. As for fishing - where can you not fish is the question. We fished literally a couple of blocks away all the way to some miles away in fresh mountain streams with beautiful backdrops! Then we brought our catch home & had friend fish for dinner. There is a small local grocer down the street. We hope to return this spring.

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!
