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 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!

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!

Great place to stay in Marlinton

  • 4 of 5

We stay at Nolas because it accommodates our large family & we can walk anywhere in town. Great for Marlinton events such as the Road Kill Cookoff & Greenbrier River Race. The home is always clean, comfortable & stocked with kitchen items you might forget. We'll be back. Thanks, Joe Nekoranec

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.
