Why The 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.

Very quiet and relaxing!

Can’t say enough positive comments about the owners and property. Owners very friendly, responsive to our every request. The property is perfect for family getaway. The deck, and pool are the icing on the cake. Clean, comfortable furnishings, complete with central air and satellite TV. Oh yes, must not forget the fire pit, with firewood supplied by owners! We will visit again.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 days at the end of August. We have two boys (ages 9 and 13), and the reason we chose this vacation cabin was because of the pool and access to the creek. The cabin was extremely clean and well stocked. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook. All the beds and pillows seemed new and were very soft and comfortable. It was very nice having our own pool to come back to after hiking in the Monongahela National Forest . We also enjoyed creeking and fishing. The cabin has very easy access to the creek, and it is very shallow in places, so our boys could just play, or they tubed in the deeper parts. We took our telescope and looked at Saturn and Jupiter at night because you can see the sky so well from the deck. They have a very large fire pit and plenty of firewood, so we roasted marshmallows every night. The property is very large, and our boys had a great time just running around. We brought our trail cam, and it caught pictures of possums and deer that were active at night. The yard is large enough that you don't see any neighbors from the back yard, so it feels very secluded. We had a wonderful time!

Very nice stay

Close proximity to fine fishing along the Smoke Hole area. We fished most of the days, and cooled off in the pool in the evenings. Very relaxing, and a great place to re-connect with the entire family.

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.
