About the property

Beautiful, quiet cabin centrally located on the 77 mile long Greenbrier River Trail that Sleeps 4 adults & 2 children. Hiking, Biking, Horseback Riding, canoeing, kayaking, tubing, fishing, and swimming are some of the many activities surrounding this scenic location.

Beautiful wood floors throughout living area with full kitchen and bath. Large bedroom contains queen bed and twin bunk bed.

This property is remotely located off the beaten path on a gate access, one lane, gravel road that passes through the rolling hills of a working cattle farm in the Falling Springs District of Greenbrier County. There is no cable or internet or wifi service (we have tried). Due to uncontrollable rain and cows, the drive can be very uneven and we HIGHLY RECOMMEND A 4WD OR AWD VEHICLE.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful place! We are envious.

Our ancestors left this area in the 1850's. We still don't understand why they left!

We have had a wonderful time and truly enjoyed our stay.

Lovely location, met most expectations.

  • 4 of 5

The house is great, comfortable, kitchen better equipped than most places we've rented. Clean on arrival, queen bed (only one we used) very comfortable. The extra towels and linens made available were appreciated. The Jacuzzi bath is lacking in that apparently the hot water tank is small and we were unable to get enough hot water to work the jets without boiling numerous pots of water on the stove. And this was after we had not run hot water for an hour or more. Screens on all the windows and doors would be a good idea. There are some, but the ability to open all the windows/doors without bug or animal entry would be nice. The road in could use some work. We were able to make it in and out with our 2-wheel drive Pontiac Vibe wagon, but we're experienced with unpaved roads in that vehicle having done many miles in Canada on unpaved surfaces. We suspect many others would be able to get in...but getting out is another story entirely. We used the house as our base to do the entire bike trail twice (160 miles) by hauling the bikes to a different entry point each day and returning to the same spot later. Starting from the house first day is a great idea. It's pretty easy to do 25-40 miles/day with a minimum grade on the trail. Lots of wildlife around the cabin and on trail and we even had a large black bear run across the trail in front of us a few miles north of the cabin. We encourage others to go north, explore Cass and Marlinton where there is some fascinating history available. Also, there is an IGA supermarket in Marlinton if you're heading north. Again, great house, Porcellas have done a great job. If you see David Workman (farmer whose property surrounds Porcella's) in his yard, stop and talk. Nice guy, and we had good conversations with him.

The property was great it was remote enough to get away

  • 5 of 5

We could not believe how cool this location was, right on the trail and views of the river to enjoy with our meals. It was remote enough to feel away from everything, but still close enough to enjoy Lewisburg and The Greenbrier.

Nice cozy cabin

  • 4 of 5

Cabin is very quiet and cozy and not too difficult to get to. Gravel road is a little bumpy but I would say most 2WD cars could make it fine except in winter. Cabin was very modern and clean and had all the amenities with exception of satellite TV and internet. Verizon cell phone did not work out here but AT&T seemed to work ok. Greenbrier trail right in front of cabin if you like to mountain bike. Not really able to get in the river here without a little difficulty. Have to open and close two gates which wasn't too difficult except if you're coming and going late at night, definitely need a flash light. I would stay there again.

Comfort and peace

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful comfortable cabin, perfect for our unplugged get away. Quiet, peaceful, yards from the river and right on the Greenbrier River Trail. We biked. We hiked. We cooked. We rested. It was fantastic, and we can't wait to visit again!

Very Peaceful

It was nice to get away from our cell phones and internet and just enjoy the peace and quiet of this adorable little cabin. We brought in some fine wine and food and had a very pleasant weekend.......
