Why John Taylor chose West Virginia

We built Top of the Hill in 2013 as a home away from home in the Mountains of West Virginia. It is just outside the city limits of Fayetteville, WV offering a rural setting just minutes from civilization. We are minutes from many scenic trails in the National Park, and downtown Fayetteville. Fayetteville is a wonderful, quiet town, offering several great restaurants to unwind at with a cold beer at the end of the day. We situated the cabin high up on a hill offering amazing sunsets in the evening from the porch and fire ring.

What makes this cabin unique

Top of the Hill offers a unique setting just minutes from town while feeling miles away. We are also conveniently located across the street from Cantrell Ultimate Rafting making white water trips a short walk from your door. Cantrell’s also has a pub and features live bands on the weekends.

The climb is worth it. Heaven on the hill

  • 5 of 5

The driveway is very steep which requires a 4x4 and a steady hand to descend. The steep climb leads to a heavenly cottage on the hill. The pleasant aroma of interior wood work is appealing Close to town for your convieniences but far enough out to enjoy nature

beautiful property! The house is extremely comfortable and within minutes of great dining

  • 5 of 5

Smiles as you make your way up the steep driveway to the top of hill. The house is beautiful. Out front there is a very welcoming porch and a designated firepit zone. Loved the setup as there are multiple sitting areas and a nice kitchen.

Across the way from the home is Cantrells ultimate rafting. We setup a rafting trip with them that was absolutely amazing. They happen to be THE BEST company in the area and conveniently situated 100 yards away. They also have a bar on site which was also fun. All around 5star experience . This is the house to rent if visiting in fayetteville.

Great Place!!

  • 5 of 5

We were going white water rafting for a weekend- found this house on home away. Were extremely pleased! Cabin was very clean, most everything was new, and Cantrell's (just across the street) was great! Make sure you have AWD/ 4WD for driveway- John isnt kidding on that! Bring your own mifi if you need Internet, but I shouldn't have been working on the weekend anyway. Ha. We will definitely be back!

Well built, clean, secluded cabin

  • 5 of 5

Rented this with 6 adults for a rafting trip. The cabin was perfect for what we were looking for. We fit comfortably (2 per bed, 1 on foldout sofa, 1 on air mattress that we brought). Everything was very clean, the space is great, and there is a good outdoor patio to hang out. The owner (John) was very friendly and responsive. Keys were handled through the rafting company across the street which was very convenient.

Only thing to watch out for is the steep gravel driveway. John made a point to make sure we had 4 wheel drive cars to get up it. Would have been quite difficult without them.

Great place to stay! Updated property - cool bar/restaurant across the street

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. Updated and looks like new. Very private, yet walking distance to a great bar/restaurant with live music and a rafting company. People there were very nice! There was a set of corn hole boards for entertainment, as well as a grill and fire pit. You will need 4 wheel drive to get up the hill but the property owner will remind you of that prior to your arrival. I would stay again in a heartbeat. 100% satisfied.
