About Sally Rose Ribeiro

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.

Sally Rose Ribeiro purchased this house in 1902

Why Sally Rose Ribeiro chose West Virginia

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!

What makes this house unique

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!

Winter Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Nola's house 4 times now. It reminds me of staying in my Grandmother's house. I even looked twice at one of the pictures and thought it looked like my Grandson. Marlinton is about a half hour from Snowshoe where we get the Ridiculous Pass every year. We spend the week skiing /snowboarding and come home every evening to cook dinner and hang out at the house. It sure beats paying the exorbitant prices to stay at the slopes. Sally even left the Christmas decorations up for us and left a plate of cookies. I am glad that we can afford to give our family this winter holiday as a Christmas present.

Feels like coming home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights (two couples) at Nola's House and had an enjoyable time there! There is a comfortable, family atmosphere. Many things are in the area to do and see, and I am sure we will all return for another visit to this lovely home.

Enjoyed our stay. The property was clean & well maintained. The family photos and mementos gave it a cozy & welcoming feel. The owner was very cooperative in making a slight adjustment in the dates of our reservation due to an unforeseen, weather-related event which delayed a member of our group.

Nola's house was clean and well maintained. The dining area and adjoining den/bedroom make the house special. Wonderful front porch and backyard. Sally, the owner is great to work with and very interested in making sure her guests are pleased.

  • 4 of 5

This home is a treasure. Makes you feel like hot apple pie and lemonade in the summer time. Spacious accommodations with comfortable beds. Sally was helpful and made sure everything was fine. This home is not for those who don't appreciate the best things in life because the simple things makes the longest impression. Will stay here every time I'm in the area. My entire group concurred

Happy Memories

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Marlinton. Nola's House is a well-kept, clearly well-loved home full of happy memories, and the owner's communications were so prompt and personable, we really felt like we were staying in a friend's home. Thank you for helping us to create happy memories of our own!

Owner's Response: I appreciate the kind words; please come back again. Skiing season usually starts after Thanksgiving. You would enjoy "THE MOUNTAIN" with all of the snow; it's beautiful.
