All new, inside and out!
Enjoy our log cabin with views of the West Virginia mountains. If you want to stay in a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle, but also want easy access to a number of activities, this is the place to stay. The cabin is located in Slatyfork, two miles from the four season resort of Snowshoe Mountain.
Maximum occupancy is 6 with no more than 4 adults.
The cabin sleeps six in three queen size beds with one bedroom and a cozy loft.
Bring only clothes/toiletries and food! This cabin has everything you need: full kitchen, sheets, towels, paper and cleaning products(not personal toiletries), and a porch with mountain views.
Play golf at the Gary Player designed Raven Golf Course, voted #1 Public Access Golf Course in West Virginia for the fourth year in a row. Enjoy a walk through Slatyfork Farm development adjoining our property. We love our pets and understand you may want to bring your pet on your vacation. We are pet-friendly; just tell us type and number of pets you are bringing. Linens and cleaning upon departure are included in our rates.
There is a small grocery store, gas and unique shopping one mile from the cabin. Four wheel drive recommended in the winter, but we are right off well-maintained Highway 219 leading to Snowshoe.
Seasonal Activities nearby(please check with vendors schedules before your visit to ensure availability): Skiing, Snowboarding, Snowmobiling, Snowshoeing, Cross Country Skiing, Hiking, Rock Climbing, Biking, Golf at Raven Golf Course, Snowshoe’s Outpost Adventure with BMX Track, Sporting Clays and Climbing Wall.
One of the most popular recreational activities in Pocahontas County is fishing. Eight Rivers (Cheat, Cherry, Cranberry, Elk, Gauley, Greenbrier, Tygart Valley, Williams) and countless streams originate in the area.
Take a scenic ride on the Cass railroad(check seasonal schedule and buy tickets ahead because they book up quickly), mountain bike, hike, fish, bike the Greenbrier River Trail or float the Greenbrier River. Visit the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, Lost World Caverns, Falls of Hill Creek, Droop Mountain State Park, Beartown State Park, Watoga State Park and Seneca State Forest.
Nationally recognized, the Highland Scenic Highway, is a must see. Cutting across Monongahela National Forest, this 43-mile route, much of which follows Rte. 150, the highest major road in the state- provides dramatic views of the Allegheny Highlands. This scenic byway, accessible from April through November (weather permitting) begins just south of Slatyfork and travels through hardwood forests to Richwood.
Along the way, you’ll find wildlife, waterfalls, 150 miles of hiking trails, and the 36,000 acre Cranberry Bogs Wilderness Area and Visitors Center. The county is home to two other nationally recognized scenic byways as well that are accessible year-round.

Our family, including our daughter, son and daughter-in-law, loves to ski. We also love coastal living in our home of Savannah,GA. Since we rarely get snow, we started visiting West Virginia to enjoy snow and skiing. After visiting the area during other seasons, we realized that we loved West Virginia year-round. We bought our home with plans of renting it out to visitors. We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to enjoy the cabin and share it with others. Visit soon in any season and enjoy all West Virginia has to offer from the comfort of our cabin!
Chrissie Burriss purchased this cabin in 2003
Our cabin is conveniently located to enjoy all activities in the area.
We enjoy our location in the mountains since we are from a coastal region.
Chrissie! We're just back home!! We had a wonderful, wonderful stay in your lovely cabin. I took my dog for a walk each morning in the lovely field with the wild flowers blooming, and I felt like I found a slice of heaven!
We recently stayed at Mtn. Mama for a second time- this time now newly refurbished and redecorated and it was wonderful! The cabin is comfortable, cozy, lovely, and perfectly accommodating. It had everything we needed. I love how the space has been utilized and lighted after the redesign. The atmosphere is perfect. We love to take a walk around the roads by Mtn. Mama- the immediate area is so beautiful. It's a love.
We had a great stay at Mountain Mama's, very nice and cozy cabin. We love this area even though we don't ski there is still plenty to do. Makes it even better that it is pet friendly since our boxer goes where we go. Chrissie was great to deal with. I would recommend this to family and friends.
My partner and I and our 2 dogs loved our stay at Mountain Mamas. The cabin itself is adorable and cozy and had everything we needed, even a corkscrew to open our locally purchased wine. The owner was very easy to communicate with and we were so thrilled to be able to bring our furry babies with us. The area of snowshoe is quite beautiful and was very peaceful, as we were there before ski season. We enjoyed the lovely view from the porch and were within a couple of hours of so many beautiful places near the rivers and the immense Monongehela National Forest. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you Christine!
Wonderful. All around wonderful!
From the start, Chrissie was a wonderful host to deal with when making the arrangement. She always got back to me right away with any questions or concerns I might have had.
The cabin itself was just as described. For just my husband and myself, it was more than enough space.
The main bed downstairs was very comfortable and all the pillows were lovely. The towels in the bathroom are very nice and the kitchen is stocked with everything you could need.
The only heads up that I would give someone who is interested in renting is to remember that this is a pet friendly cabin. While the cabin was very clean, there was just enough "pet" still around to have us both reaching for our allergy meds.
It also might not be a bad idea to either bring water in to use in drinks or to boil it. It does come from a well and has that sulfur smell to it.
Our time at the Mountain Mama was vastly different from our regular lives as Washington, DC residents. By day the cabin is filled with light and the porch is a delightful lounge area with views of the mountains (and often the cows grazing on them). After dark, the lack of light pollution in the vicinity combined with the silence of rural WV provides for a tranquil and restful environment.
The cabin itself is well-stocked, and all you have to bring is yourself! We were there in the summer, but surprised by how much there is to do in Snowshoe Village even without the snow. Take the ski lift to the lake, where you can kayak, relax on the (lake) beach, and even play a friendly game of curling. There are numerous trails (ask the visitor center for directions to "Fingers"), bike slopes, and restaurants for a nice drink or meal.
We go to Wv every year for a family reunion. We normally stay at snowshoe but this cabin was cheaper and closer to our family. Cute and cozy! Definitely will be back again.
Fly fishing, Rafting(1-3hrs away), Go Fly fishing on Cheat Cherry Cranberry Elk Gauley Greenbrier Tygart Rivers! Kids of all ages will enjoy the new indoor rec center which also doubles as a special event room. Basketball goals, pool and hockey tables and video arcade along with night time family entertainment. (Call Snowshoe to ensure that building is not in use for a special event rather than for kids' activities)!
