I'll start with the positive comments - We were in the Lodge portion...not a separate cabin. It was rustic, but mostly clean (except the towels, which had make up stains). Nice big room, with a small fridge and microwave and a little coffee maker - no hair dryer. Negative comments - When we got there at 6 p.m. the office... More

We are located in a very rural area of West Virginia. Service companies are limited, and will not respond to after hour calls, or emergencies. All the rooms were occupied, and since no one else had called to register a complaint about the water we had to ask a few questions so that we could determine the extent of the... More

We stayed at the Cheat River Lodge on July 24 and 25, 2014 and were pleasantly surprised at how l clean and nice the cabins were. The Big Poplar cabin is in a quiet and remote location on the Cheat River and was a wonderful back drop for our weekend getaway. The person that setup our reservation was extremely helpful... More

My sport motorcycle group spent 3 nights at Laurel Place, since it was central to our riding destinations in WV. The house was clean and well maintained. The house is pretty big- there was a comfortable amount of room for a dozen of us to . Laurel place is advertised to sleep 12, but really it is who you can... More

My wife and I stayed at the Swinging Vine midweek right before Memorial Day weekend. Were we ever pleased with our choice! The cabin was clean and in a peaceful remote location, but yet still close enough to Elkins to make a supply run or to dine out. The river runs right in front of the location so it's perfect... More

we are preparing for our second stay in a cabin (two weeks from now) and have stayed in the lodge on three occasions. We have always been treated very well and have always enjoyed our stay; hence the repeat visits. On our first stay in a cabin, we did experience a problem, but it was dealt with immediately and to...

We stayed in the Big Poplar the weekend of May17 and it was great. There was plenty of space (could easily sleep 6 if needed- the loft room is so neat!) We actually lucked out with the weather being a bit chilly- made the hot tub feel perfect we never wanted to get out! The only thing is I wish... More

The location was nice—it's very secluded and sits by itself along a river, and while they discourage loud music you can certainly get away with it without bothering anyone. The cabin itself is fairly large, sleeping 6 people with no problem (one on the couch), however it is poorly maintained and surprisingly dirty with dead bugs littered around the carpet,... More

The Big Poplar is as pictured on our website. Satellite images will show a gravel drive that is about the length a football field. All of our staff drive compact cars which are low to the ground and have no problem navigating this drive. We have motorcycle groups that also have absolutely no problem and they probably sit lower to... More

I stayed in the " treehouse" in 1996 however I've never been able to write a review. You definitely feel like you're living up in the trees. I was very impressed but I do agree with an earlier reviewer to be prepared to hike your bags up a lot of stairs from the parking space. It's a wonderful pay off... More

If we had to do it all over again, I would stay at the Cheat River Lodge Cabin again in a heartbeat. We stayed in the Big Poplar Cabin. It was feet away from the river and our kids had so much fun hanging out by the riverside. The cabin was very private. It was exactly what we needed. It... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in one of the recently remodeled rooms at the lodge. The bedding was very comfortable and we had no sleep issues. Very soothing mountain location. Easy drive to Canaan Valley, which was at peak leaf during our visit (9/30 to 10/3), Cass RR, Seneca Rocks. At that time of year any driving is pleasurable. Didn't... More
