We are 2 senior couples, and this was our first stay here. We normally stay in hotels when we travel, but decided it would be fun to be in the woods while the leaves were still on the trees. Our cabin (The Hughes), was very clean, comfortable, and well stocked. We ate most of our meals there and had everything... More

Our cabin was perfect for our rafting vacation. The cabin had a comfortable bed, kitchen, washer & dryer. The icing on the cake was the hot tub after a day of rafting or hiking. We could not have asked for a better base camp to explore the area. Dave made it very easy to book, find & access the cabin.

These cottages were clean, perfect for couples or families or groups. Well equipped with the necessities for short stay or long. Very private and secluded location yet extremely convenient to state park and other amenities and attractions. A++++ Highly recommended.

We were back again for another weekend at Major Harding's abode. We made a (realistic) request or two to Dave prior to our stay and all was in place when we arrived. He is very accommodating and very easy to work with. We will be returning in October for our 7th trip with the girls but my 10th stay at... More

We have stayed at Carnifex Ferry Cottages a few times. The small cabin pictured was the first one we ever stayed in. The cabin is small. It reminded me of a cottage in a fairy tale. We have stayed in a bigger cabin there as well. The location is so peaceful and quiet. Perfect place to get away for a... More

We stayed in Major Harding Abode and my parents stayed in Colonel Lowes- they were AMAZING! We normally rent cabins several times a year, I have found Carnifex to be the best by far-& am planning on returning in the fall for zip lining --best value, modern, clean, and private--- Thanks Dave!!!

Everything from check in to check out is well managed. The cabins are clean, comfortable, with all kitchen amentities that allow us to serve a very large group. Each year we rent... More

My boyfriend & I stayed at one of these cottages over Valentine's Day weekend. We were looking for a cozy, romantic getaway, with an outdoor hot tub & full kitchen--& that's exactly what we got. It was a wonderful time. The cottage is beautiful (we stayed in the cottage called Summit ) well-maintained, fully stocked firewood, clean hot tub, washer... More
