Cantrell's House is home to West Virginia Adventures, family owned and operated West Virginia companies situated near the village of Fayetteville and the village of Hinton and the best whitewater rafting on the east coast. West Virginia Adventures guides are some of the finest in the industry and the customer service is the best! We will give you the highest quality trip possible, not the highest price – this is our guarantee! We have 2 locations in the New River Gorge Region. Out of Fayetteville, WV you can come and visit us at our Gatewood River Access basecamp we have cabins with private hot tubs, rustic cabins, R.V. camping with full hook-ups, bathhouse and onsite laundry facilities and our popular 35th Star Grill & Pub where you can enjoy some of the best entertainment in the region every weekend. Our trips out of this location range from mild to wild whitewater, so if your group is mixed this would be the best destination for you. This location is also perfect for accessing beginner to advanced hiking and biking trails; gravity ziplines to tree-top canopy tours; ATV adventures and a new area attraction - BridgeWalk. From our Hinton location we offer a nice mild family trip that is just right for beginners and gives you a small taste of white water. This location is close to Bluestone State Park and Pipestem Resort State Park.

We picked the Cantrell's for our New River rafting trip because we were disenchanted with large company rafting trips in other places. Now we're patting ourselves on the back because it was even better than we expected. Nancy handled our pre-visit phone calls and she was warm, knowledgeable and efficient. Stacy, our river guide was a total pleasure. Oh, and... More

This is our second trip with cantrells. It's absolutely the best rafting experience .Nancy is always a pleasure And makes us feel like family. We took the afternoon lower river express with Adam, the river was a bit calmer but still an adrenaline rush. Make sure you tip your guides people, they make your experience! See y'all again soon :)

I have been using Cantrell's for my Whitewater Rafting course trips for a number of years now. They have always been more than acommodating for the special needs, and issues of a large group like mine. Most of my students are first time "rafters", but some of us are "seasoned" paddlers. The staff and guides do an excellent job at... More

I have been been on the New River with other companies...and none compared to the experience we had last weekend with Cantrell's. My wife had never been rafting and booked a trip out to celebrate our anniversary. We are so glad we found Cantrell's and will come back again (already planning a trip this September). We stayed in one of... More

As three college students, we stopped in West Virginia on our road trip for our first white water rafting experiences. Even though we lacked rafting experience, we took a tour with class I-V rapids because of our ages and swimming abilities. The ride proved thrilling and the scenery was picturesque. Our experienced guides Adam, Stacy, and John Henry were all... More

My sister and I had never white water rafted before, and had an incredible experience with Cantrell's! Nancy was super accommodating to our schedule, and even went so far as to adjust the start time of our trip to make it more convenient for us. My sister is a vegan and I'm a vegetarian, and they made sure to have... More

These are the real underdogs of the gorge who truly care about giving you the best New River Gorge experience possible. Our guide was Stacy who has over two decades of experience and a plethora of background knowledge of the surrounding history. You would be mistaken to hire any other crew. no regrets!

I was invited last year and re-invited this year to come along with a large group of guys who have been coming here for many years white water rafting. Great guides who make sure you are safe and have the experience you want. Staff is very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel at home.
