We arrived to this McKinley after dark. There were no lights left on to help find it, had to call Dave for directions - who seemed very put out to have to take the time to give them to us! Once we found it, (open and unlocked) it was more of a hunting shack than romantic getaway (as advertised). The... More

I think what we have here is a case of mistaken identity. I followed our correspondence and we discussed both McKinley's Cabin and our Summit cottage. From your comments about the cabin it sounds as though, you had our Summit cottage in mind but you reserved McKinley's Cabin. The deck at Summit is much larger and it is nestled in... More

My family and I have used Carnifex Cabins for 8 years. We have had Christmas with the family and our girls weekends are up to twice a year now. We have always found them to be well maintained, clean and very affordable. Dave is great to work with. It’s a cabin/cottage so we have never expected 5 star hotel accommodations... More

I am a repeat customer and would not consider staying anywhere else in the area. Well kept, quiet, beautiful cabins and grounds make for a great stay. Staff is very accommodating and takes care of business. Although secluded, the cabins are close to some beautiful overlooks and shopping is convenient. Definitely recommend!!!!!!!!

This is my third time staying in this cabin. It is always well kept and clean. Plenty of room and perfect for a weekend getaway. Anything needed during our stay is quickly taken care of by the staff. Never disappointed with anything at this location.

We originally tried out the cabins at Carnifex Ferry because it was a good central point for family to get together for a Christmas reunion weekend. The cabins were well maintained, clean and had the basics in linens and kitchen supplies so we didn't have to haul the necessities you need to for the usual ' cabin in the woods'... More

Stayed in #6 general Wises choice. Clean, private easy access to lake and motorcycle rides. More room then we needed but king size bed was comfy, laundry area, hot tub was very clean. Stayed other places close, no comparison. Definitely will be back! Missy and Brian

I was first introduced to the cabins at Carnifex Ferry on my first rafting trip down the Gauley about 5 years ago. I've subsequently done 3 or 4 trips to the area and have stayed here every time - most recently we rented 3 of the cabins and had a fun group of 23 people for the weekend. Cabins are... More

We stayed at the nancy Harr cottage for a girls trip away. The location is about 20 minutes from the new river rafting but definitely worth it to visit Summersville lake. The cottage was roomy with a/c units and has great amenities for its value price. Full kitchen hot tub Hammock, fireplace & outdoor fire ring with wood provided. The... More

This was our second stay in Major Hardings abode. We stayed a few years ago and it was in perfect condition. Since then it has changed hands a few times and the group of cabins has been allowed to deteriorate terribly. The big window in the living room is filthy and 1 large pane is broken. The maintenence man said... More

Thanks for taking the time to share your opinion. I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your last stay. I can assure you that our cottages are in a constant state of maintenance. Seldom does a day go by that we aren't fixing something. The window that you are referring to is a double paned one that is 12ft. above the... More
