Nice,secluded cabin but so convenient to everything!

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was nice. Only two issues. The floors had to be swept upon arrival. Lots of dust and dead flies. Also, there wasn’t any instructions on what was expected at checkout and FP remote did not work. We cleaned all dishes; threw the dirty towels in washer and put trash out on top of table on back porch. We swept the floors with broom but I’m sure we left some dirt. Would definitely like to rent again in the future. Just need some instructions as to what is expected. Also, need somehow to communicate with owner. Sent emails but no answer. This is not mean spirited critique at all, just suggestions.

Secluded, clean and spacious, wonderful amenities, and so close to outdoor activities

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time our family stayed as a part of a white water rafting trip weekend and it was as beautiful, clean, and perfect as we remembered it. It has everything you need to relax and enjoy time together with family and friends. I can't think of a better way and place to spend the weekend.

Horseback riding, Eating at all of the one of a kind eateries such as Pies and Pints, Gumbos, Secret Sandwich Society, Diogies, Burrito Bar at Breeze Hill For gorgeous sunsets and great music just to mention a few. Hiking in and around the new river and boating on the Summersville Lake for those whom want to bring a motor boat along. Take a scenic road trip to Carnifex Ferry Battlefield, Cranberry Glades, Scenic Highway all of the places are totally worth the drive if you have any time at all.
