About Owner/Manager

We grew up in Pocahontas County and are business owners in Marlinton and this historic home became ours in 2013...Paula's Porch was owned by the Marlinton Presbyterian Church since 1950 and we are proud to call it ours.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2013

What makes this house unique

Beautiful oak moldings, 1930 craftsmanship's are throughout the house. Sitting on the porch listening to the evening church bells and enjoying the neighborhood is a great way to end your day!

We had a wonderful stay at Paula's Porch. It is a wonderful home. We were in Marlinton to visit family and celebrate Easter. We couldn't have asked for a better place. There is tons of space for entertaining inside and out. We'll be back!

Perfect Accommodations and Location :)

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed in this lovely, well-appointed home. It was wonderfully clean and extremely spacious! The porch with the swing and rocking chairs are a perfect way to end an active day. We used the Greenbrier Trail which is only a few blocks away. You are within walking distance to everything in town. Check out the coffee shop. We also had our motorcycle and West Virginia never disappoints. House is centrally located as we visited Cass Railroad, Droop Battlefield, Beartown State Park. Even though the house has no air conditioning, we were all very comfortable! We turned on the attic fan in the morning for about an hour and the house cooled considerably for the entire day. Ceiling and box fans are available in almost every room. Also -- BONUS have a washer and dryer. I would recommend this lovely home to anyone. Thank you to the owners!

Great Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend at Paula's Porch. The house was large and roomy. We liked the antique touches and decorations. The house was clean and well-maintained. We went biking on the Greenbrier River Trail and kayaking on the Greenbrier River. There was no air conditioning, but that was not a problem.

I can not say enough good things about this rental. The house was beautifully decorated, huge, and very accommodating. The location was in a very quite neighborhood & close to anything needed. We were vacationing there during the Tragic Floods of WV. Mr. Sharp was on the Fire Dept. and had worked countless hours helping others while still finding time to check on us. His son also on the Fire Dept. checked on us too. Mrs. Sharp also came down to check on us and lost her car during that time. The neighbors were all extremely friendly as well. God Bless to you all for all you are doing down there and Prayers to WV!!!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by how large the house was. It's got beautiful woodwork and is very clean and well kept. We all enjoyed sitting on the porch and in the 2 living rooms. We couldn't get the gas fireplace to work and that would've been nice. The kitchen is very spacious. The access to downtown Marlinton, the Greenbrier river and river bike trail is superb. You can walk to almost anywhere.

I would highly recommend Paula's Porch as an fantastic and affordable place to stay when you're in Wild and Wonderful West Virginia!
