Why Owner chose Upper Tract
This property joins with my grandmothers property which I have now inherited. It was where I spent every Sunday as I was growing up. It is a place of solitude and comfort to me. Listening to the river as it flows by is so peaceful.
What makes this House unique
The 500 feet of direct access to the river is this properties most unique feature. The private pool is also a unique feature.

A great place to relax
From the moment you open the door there is sense of comfort and relaxation at this home! Nothing like kicking back with a cold drink and a book by the pool. If you’re looking for a great place to spend a long weekend, or perhaps a week exploring the Pendleton County area, this is the place to stay.
"Almost Heaven" for Sure!
Our family of five (my husband and I with our 11 year old, 5 year old, and 3 year old) had such an amazing time at the Smoke Hole house! The pictures don't do it justice. There were flowers and hanging planters in the front of the house. It was so relaxing to sit on the front porch. The side and backyard are huge. Our kids loved running around the backyard. The swimming pool is lovely! It was perfect for our family. Easy access (through the side yard) to a great river. The kids loved having s'mores at the fire pit. The inside of the house has a cabin/cottage feel - very cozy.
There were only two things that were a bit of a downside. One, we had zero cell phone reception (our carrier is Verizon) and there is no internet at the house. There is a Sheetz gas station about 25-30 minutes from the house in Petersburg that has free Wi-Fi and we were able to get one bar of Extended 1x cell reception in Petersburg to make phone calls. Two, there is no washer and dryer which wasn't a huge deal because we were only there four nights so we had enough clothes packed and we just draped our wet swim suits and towels on the deck to dry.
Overall, no one wanted to leave when it was time to go! Our three year old woke up the day after we got home and informed us he wanted to go back to the vacation house :)
Thank you Chris and Rich for such a great family vacation!
Nice place with river access and relaxing swimming pool.
What an amazing stay! Wanted a few days away from the city and this was the perfect place!
The nature is unbelievable! The house is perfect , clean and spacious. We loved the grill and the pool. The river and backyard were such a great place to take a walk , and the birds and stars were just icing on the cake. We cant wait to come back next summer for a longer stay
Wish We Had Longer
The weekend was far too short, but we packed a lot in and this property made it easy. It was the cleanest home we've ever rented. It's not too far from towns, but feels a world away. The pool was fantastic, as was the view. And the river is amazing. We were the only people around and loved fishing and just listening to the water. If you're a bird watcher you will love this place. Tons of birds at the feeder out back, and even hummingbirds out front. Must do: visit Swilled Dog Cidery, just a few miles away. If you have time, Spruce Knob isn't far and the views are breathtaking. Oh, and we have Verizon cell phones, so no service, but it was pretty nice to unplug and spend time together.
Great place for families
We had a great stay here with our toddler. Everything was really clean and very well stocked. We particularly appreciated having the pool, very well stocked kitchen, and little things like coloring books and band-aids.
Our rental is located at the mouth of the Smoke Hole. From Franklin, WV, you travel north on 220 through Upper Tract. Stay on 220 until you cross the big bridge(Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge) with an old iron bridge parallel to it. Take the first left onto Jake Hill Road . Our rental is the first house on the left.
