Kids love to run and play in the open fields, the woods and the stream. The river has some vary marked features with a channel of limestone, neatly chiseled as though by the hand of man; where there's rough, jagged, irregular and bristling with pitted and honey-combed formations; a narrow chasm over which a man may leap, there a wide deep abyss, eaten out of the solid rock, with erosion from the external pounding of water throughout the ages; caverns extending far back under the overlying strata, huge rocks and boulders everywhere in and along the channels At times the river bed is dry exposing fossils from thousands of years ago. AND THEN ................ at one notable point, the river bed opens up to the famous & historic "Flat Rocks"; a level flat rock two hundred and fifty feet in width and twice as long, smooth as a flatiron and flat as a smoothing iron. Local people held 4th of July picnics and dances while a short distance below, at the mouth of Chimney Rock Branch, was a perennial ice house that preserved frozen snow and water used for making ice cream and lemonade.

About the owner: While on a WV Trout Fishing vacation, I was photographing the scenic beauty along the river and came upon this property for sale. After a tour, I purchased it that very evening. With many family members who love the outdoors, it offered seasonal fishing, swimming, gardening, hiking, meditating and just plain old relaxing. Shut your eyes and imagine breathing in fresh air, gentle breezes, nature all around me. Wildlife is plentiful as we watch from the windows facing the mountains and open fields. With a Rhino 4-Wheeler, that my grandchildren named 'Lady Bug, we load up and meander to our Famous" Flat Rocks" on the north acreage where local folks danced and picnicked since the 1800's. Sometimes, we catch a trout for dinner. Many lasting memories have been made by all our friends, family and new visitors who stop by and have some iced tea or just want to take a few pictures of the scenic Elk River. Won't you share in our wonderful adventures at River Run Retreat?
Why the Owner Chose Mingo, WV, USA:
River Run Retreat grounds me from all the hustle bustle of city life. The air is clean and waters are pristine. It truly is a bit of heaven for me, my family & friends. The arms of Nature surround. You are nestled with beautiful flat meadows and the Monongahela National Forest on one side and the Elk Mtn on the other. The Elk River is a hidden secret with wildlife of an occasional Bald Eagle soaring over the river; some cranes rest in the flat limestone, deer cross the river and eat from the meadow grasses This is why this property; "A Bit of Heaven"
