4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom House Near New River Gorge
About Bill Wells
Bill and Sally Wells are the owners of the property and live nearby. Sally grew up on the property. Bill is a native of Upper St. Clair, PA and moved to WV in 1981 where he worked as a mining engineer. After living in several different states, we moved back to Fayetteville in 2012.
Bill Wells purchased this Lodge in 2007
Why Bill Wells chose Fayetteville
Sally's father built the house in 1955. We both love the outdoors and have vacationed here for many years. We were fortunate to be able to purchase the property for a weekend getaway in 2007. In August, we moved into a newly built home on the property. During construction of the new house, the original house was completely remodeled as a vacation rental.
What makes this Lodge unique
The property contains 25 mostly wooded acres that are shared by the Ramsey Mountain Lodge, the Sugar Creek Chalet (vrbo #563229) and our residence. The house is secluded but is a short 20 minute walk into downtown Fayetteville where there are many unique restaurants, shops and pubs. The stonework on the house was completed by skilled Italian stone masons whose work can be seen throughout Fayetteville. The house has a roomy interior with hardwood and tile floors, stone fireplaces with gas logs, granite counter tops, hardwood paneling and many other features. A pool table is located in the finished basement and a stone fire pit and horseshoe court are in the yard. The house is located on the edge of the plateau and the view from the front porch is of the valley below and the adjacent mountains. The back porch overlooks an orchard and vineyard. Fruit grown on the property includes apples, peaches, plums, cherries, grapes, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and many more. One of our hobbies is wine making and we get all of our fruit from the backyard orchard and vineyard. The house is an excellent location for mountain biking or hiking. The National Park trail heads are only a few miles away. Larger groups of up to 29 can be accommodated by renting both the Ramsey Mountain Lodge and Sugar Creek Chalet (vrbo 563229).

Very spacious, well stocked w/paper products, cleaning things for kitchen, linens, tableware, etc.
Property is lovely. Porches great for sitting, visiting , family sing alongs. Our group dwindled from 12-14 down to 9 because of illness, so we had plenty of sleeping places and comfortable seating. No complaints about comfort of beds. The teenage girls attempted to play pool. We saw deer Saturday morning, heard crickets and either dogs or coyotes a couple of times both nights. Pretty much a getaway from city life pretty close to the city. Thank you.
Property was great! Bill was responsive, brought us some lovely poppy seed bread to welcome us, everything was clean and the firepit is lovely. The wifi was slightly spotty sometimes but the cell reception was great. There were some harmless stinkbugs inside the house, but given the lovely remote/wooded location that didn't bother us at all. Very conveniently located to rafting, restaurants, and shops, but still feels like you're out in the woods with almost no one nearby. Would absolutely stay here again if they'd have us!
Great place to stay for rafting
The property is clean. We had a large group and rented two adjacent properties. Both were very clean and intuitive where to find things around the house i.e. sheets, blankets, even things in the kitchen like egg beaters. The fire pit is great. There were some stink bugs in the house, but that may be the season that we came in.
Great house and great location!!!!!
Very nice owners too!!!! This is the 2nd time we have rented the house and it won’t be our last.
Great House for our family reunion
12 members of our family stayed at this house Aug. 8th through the 11th. 2019. We have stayed in owner's Sally and Bill Wells houses the last two years. Stone Lodge is a beautiful ,very well equipped house that worked very well for our family. We loved sitting on the back porch watching deer, bluebirds, peach and apple trees.
The lodge was a great place to stay. There were 8 adults in our group, and the lodge had everything we needed for our week of climbing, biking and hiking around the New River Gorge. There was plenty of space for us in the lodge, and the 3+ acres gave us privacy. The hosts, Bill & Sally were very nice and accommodating.
