About the Property

Sleeps 8 & couch in living room, fully furnished for your vacation.

The house is an older home built by mining company for managers & is directly across from Glen Ferris Inn also built by mining company. There are Scenic views of Kanawha River and Falls and mountains. You can hear the falls in the evenings or early mornings. There are occasional train whistles form the tracks across the river.It is Children friendly with fenced yard. Parking space along the side of house. Wi-fi is not furnished and cell service can be hit and miss in the mountains. You are guaranteed a peacefulness, relaxing environment to unwind.
.The home is the closest house to the Kanawha Water Falls. It is furnished with period antiques that were used during the 1930's. All bedrooms have their own air conditioners. There is one bedroom down stairs and 3 up stairs with 1 and 1/2 bathrooms. Large dinning room/game room to pass the evenings. There is a fire pit in the yard along with a BBQ grill & yard games for backyard. There is a walking path along the base of the mountain along the railroad tracks. A boat ramp is just down the street where the ramp and fishing area can be found.
The home is furnished with casual furniture for great family enjoyment. There are so many places to visit within a short distance you will need at least a week to check them out. Battle Run Beach and Boating Area is about a 45 minute drive. There are pontoons, boats and fishing boats to lease all on Summesrville Dam at the Gauley Bridge Recreation Area. Beautiful swimming and fishing can be done here. Tamerack Convention Center and the Greenbrier Resort/Golf & Spa and about an hour & 20 minute drive. Lots of shops at the Greenbrier or Lewissburg is fun too.
On a rain day I would recommend the Caves, Tamerack, Beckley Exhibition Coal Mines and Downtown Charleston Mall for fun things to do. There is also an Farmer's Market on weekends called Capital Market and Flowers to see.
