The main level offers a wide open floor plan, which is great when entertaining friends and family. It houses a half bath with a granite counter and copper sink, a custom kitchen, dining, and sitting areas.

For your entertainment, Martha's Place comes equipped with a 60' flat panel television with surround sound, and outdoor speakers for those guests that want to enjoy the big game, a special movie, or listen to CDs or an I-Pod.

The custom kitchen has all the amenities a chef would love including high-end stainless steel appliances manufactured by companies, such as Subzero and Bosch. Some appliances, such as the freezer and microwave, are custom mounted under the kitchen's island. While the dishwasher and refrigerator are custom installed to blend seamlessly into the kitchen cabinets. Martha's Place includes amenities, such as kitchen utensils, small appliances, paper towels, coffee, and tea. Guests simply need to bring their favorite foods and enjoy spending time with family and friends.

The lower level of Martha's Place includes a laundry room, two full baths, three bedrooms, a covered patio, and hot tub. All the baths have granite counters with custom showers constructed of marble or tumbled stone. The bedrooms are equipped with king-size beds, which have been custom built to offer additional storage underneath (see pictures above). If you're the type that wants to enjoy the night air or soak in the hot tub, simply open the doors to the covered patio and take advantage of all that Martha's Place has to offer. Amenities include iron, ironing board, hair dryers in each of the baths, linens and towels for beds and baths, and an eight person hot tub. Additional linens and towels will be provided upon request at a charge of $10 per guest. If guests are staying three or more nights, a complimentary change of towels will be provided upon request.

If your school or work makes it nearly impossible to get away, Martha's Place has you covered -- with an office located in the loft. The office comes equipped with wireless internet, printer, and supplies. All you need is a laptop and a cell phone. If additional accommodations are needed, the loft also contains a twin bed with custom built-in storage. The loft at Martha's Place allows guests to concentrate on the matters at hand without being isolating from family and friends.

If your party requires additional sleeping arrangements, we also offer an oversized queen air mattress that can be easily setup in the entry way. This isn't just any air mattress. This mattress sits 21' above the ground at the normal height of a bed and adjusts to meet your personal needs, whether you prefer a firm mattress or something softer. It inflates in less than 4 minutes and deflates just as quickly.

Come see all that Martha's Place has to offer.

While Gravity Zip Lines offers about two miles of zip lines 200 feet in the air. The newest addition, TimberTrek Aerial Adventure Park offers an aerial obstacle course for enthusiasts of all ages. It offers four courses to challenge beginners as well as more experienced climbers.

Of course, the New River and the Gauley River continue to offer rafting enthusiasts - from novices to experts - some of the best white water rafting adventures in the world.

Other activities include, ATV tours, mountain biking, bridge walk tours, caving, bass and fly fishing, disc golf, hiking, horseback riding, jet boats, lake tours, paint ball, rock climbing, skeet & trap shooting, and paddle boarding.

Then again, guests may want to enjoy a day of golf and/or shopping. Nearby attractions, such as Pipestem Resort State Park, Glade Springs, or the Greenbrier Resort offer a number of golf packages to meet your needs. While Tamarack has wares hand crafted by West Virginia artisans and Fayetteville has a number of quaint shops for enthusiasts to enjoy.

But if you love photography or just want to relax in a peaceful, tranquil environment just sit back and take in the views. New River Gorge State Park, Hawks Nest State Park, Babcock State Park and Pipe Stem Resort State Park provide some of the most beautiful flora and fauna seen on the Eastern Seaboard.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: Nestled on the rim of the New River Gorge, this authentic timber frame home, Martha's Place, was inspired by Martha Gaines Wehrle. Martha was born and raised in Fayette County, West Virginia. Her life's work included caring for and nurturing her home and its residents. Martha's Place was aptly named as it encompassed her strength, her natural beauty and grace, and her endless effort to protect all she loved about her home, West Virginia. Martha's Place is located off the beaten path in Wild Rock, a community whose design guidelines call for the use of long-lifespan materials, such as local lumber and stone. Materials utilized in the construction of this vacation rental home. To leave the lightest environmental footprint possible, Wild Rock also insists on the most efficient use of natural resources. Homes must be oriented in the New River Gorge National Park to take advantage of prevailing winds, sun angles and shade from surrounding vegetation. These home site practices help preserve the natural beauty of the New River Gorge and surrounding area.

Why Fayetteville:
Fayette County, West Virginia is home of the famed New River (one of America's National Heritage Rivers) and the New River Gorge Bridge (the longest steel arch bridge in the western hemisphere). Martha's Place is centrally located in the New River Gorge National Park to give you access to hundreds of miles of trails, scenic overlooks, drives and diverse flora and fauna.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
With Civil War-era historic sites and a quaint sophistication in dining and the arts, Martha's Place is centrally located to allow you and your family to enjoy almost any amenity you can dream, whether its an adventure, a day of golf, shopping or relaxing. If you're looking for a vacation rental, Martha's Place is just for you. This timber frame home is centrally located to allow families and friends to bond with nature and the land she called home, West Virginia.
