About Property Manager/Owner
The male component of this couple was born in Clarksburg, WV and wanted to be a forest ranger, but his Mom said "You'll always have time for fun; GET A GOOD EDUCATION" . . but his heart was always in the outdoors; the better half of this couple grew up in Washington, PA and traveled to WVU- where they met -together they enjoy showing others a great time outdoors and indoors. Our four children - one a special needs adult, have each been active in scouts (one Gold Award, two Silver Award, and one Eagle) each have made mountain memories at FCW. Both parental units enjoy sharing our experiences, to enable others to enjoy the WV outdoors.
Property Manager/Owner purchased this Cabin in 1993
Why Property Manager/Owner chose Elkins
FCW has been a source of great memories for us and our family of four starting in 1993 when we first purchased the green cabin along the river’s edge. Hiking, fishing, swimming, hunting, bird watching, marshmallow roasting w/story telling are but a few of the special Mountain Memories we have made and enjoyed. Over the years we’ve become more familiar with the immediate surroundings, the lands encompassed within the Monongahela National Forest, and the nearness to civilization (when desired). We hope to succeed in sharing our fun knowledge with friends, scouts, and others who appreciate Mother Nature. Recent additions to the property have enabled us to now share accommodations with curious others. Our rental property boasts inside sleeping accommodations for 2 - 10 people. We say “inside” because we’ve hosted many large groups over the years. Scouts, extended family/friends, hunters and fishermen . . . .they’ve all relaxed and enjoyed the peace, quiet, and solitude found along this beautiful river. Many visitors have felt comfortable setting up and sleeping in tents, comforted with the knowledge of indoor shelter is within earshot. We are constantly dreaming of “what ifs” for this property! We are also in constant improvement mode - so get acquainted with FCW now and enjoy the present and the future. Need help in putting together some exciting outdoor activities for a family gathering? Please don’t hesitate to ask us to assist. Being parents and scout leaders, we have both the knowledge and youth protection training to help plan/guide activities to meet any fitness or desire level. Such activities could include: • Inner tube float trip to the “swimming hole” • Stream stomp • Native trout fishing • Countless cross country or trail hiking from a two hour day hike to a week excursion into Otter Creek (and back!) • Bird watching • Mountain biking • Canoe/kayak trip • Much, much more
What makes this Cabin unique

Awesome stay in West Virginia
Wonderful place to stay , breath talking views, amazing place to relax
One of my favorite places
Not the first time I was here. It gets better every visit!! Never know what you will find and it’s always great!! Brought the motorcycle down this time to ride the awesome roads. It was indeed worth doing
Our stay at Wannabigbuk cabin Elkins, WV from 5/2-5/5/2019
When we arrived at the cabin we did fell in love right away. Our stay was a pleasure even we had regular rain showers. The location with the river close is fantastic for hiking, relaxing, enjoying nature! Everything was perfectly prepared for our stay. We met Blaise, which was a pleasure, and enjoyed talking to him, him giving us information about things to do and the history of the cabin. The setup with fire pit and grill is fantastic to enjoy evenings of grilling and watching the fire. We definitely keep the cabin in our minds to come back one day and to suggest to friends.
Blaise, thank you so much for helping us to make some great memories.

Its nice folks like you that make renting FCW so much FUN! So glad you found the accommodations to your liking.
I'm trying to work out a deal with Mother Nature to "dry up" and let her Milky Way be seen, but she's not getting with the program.
Look forward to seeing you again at Fabulous Camp Wannabigbuk!
We took the whole family for an Easter getaway. The kids enjoyed fishing in the river which had easy access.
They loved S’mores in the fire pit. We may make this our Easter Tradition.
Thank you for your kind words! Your experience is just what we hoped it would be, as it mirrors the traditions our family started at Fabulous Camp Wannabigbuk. We look forward to your return.
We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you!!!
The owner was available when we had some questions and the property manager stopped just to see how our vacation was going. Great place to stay.
Thanks for your kind words. Glad you enjoyed your stay and had some mountain fun. Hope to host you and your great family in the future!
Solid week of fun
Although it rained the entire time we were there, we took walks, watched the creek, peered at planets through occasional holes in the clouds, listened to birds and crickets, counted deer in the fields, saw a tiny, baby skink (less than 3/4 inch long) crossing the road on a wet day, and sat on the covered porch just enjoying the fresh air and sounds of rain on the forest. This cabin is set up for comfort and fun. The well appointed kitchen was a joy to cook in. The owners clearly want visitors to have what they need (and what they didn't even imagine needing) to be comfortable. Thanks!
That rain stuff has been a problem all year! Gonna have to sit down with Ma Nature . . . But on better thought, maybe I won’t, as she might tell me a thing or two. Neat find on the baby skink. Glad you found the accommodations to your liking & hope to see you again!
