About the Property


This 3200-square-foot modern home has 4 en-suite bedrooms, each with a sweeping view of the forest and river 900 feet below. Built in 2010, this home takes full advantage of sustainable building techniques to provide a warm and comfortable environment for a large family and visitors. Floor-to-ceiling windows on the river side of the Cliff House provide unparalleled vistas while the slope assures privacy. The exterior rain-screen siding and all flooring are historic first-growth heart pine reclaimed by Mountain Lumber from a demolished factory in Georgia. Strategically located windows open to allow for natural ventilation when conditions are conducive, and all appliances are energy-star rated. The Cliff House sits on a 2-acre lot adjacent to the climbers’ access trail to the famous Bubba City climbing walls of the New River Gorge.

The combined open split-level living, dining and kitchen space focuses on the New River Gorge Bridge and outdoor deck with fire pit. The kitchen and dining area are elevated two feet above the living area to allow a full, sweeping view of the landscape.

The master suite has a wood-burning fireplace and sliding glass doors that open to expose the bedroom to the great outdoors and gorge views.

You will be just minutes away from Fayetteville, West Virginia, recently named 'One of America's Coolest Small Towns' by Budget Travel Magazine. Fayetteville is home to eclectic and unique art galleries and boutiques as well as diverse, independently owned, restaurants and eateries. Enjoy locally-brewed craft beer and sample authentic Central American fare at Diogi's Latin Cuisine or visit Pies & Pints Pizzeria, named one of the Top 20 Pizza Spots in the U.S. by The Huffington Post.

If you are looking to have fun in the great outdoors, look no further. The Cliff House is located in the heart of all things adventure. We are immediately adjacent to Adventures on the Gorge, a full service outfitter with three restaurants and huge pool. Book your endless fun activities there. With outdoor activities available nearby for all ages and ability levels, the Cliff House can serve as your hub for a fun, memorable adventure vacation.
