“A modern and serene place off the beaten track.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2011

We enjoyed our stay in the spacious, well-shaded, secluded Creek Cabin (there are three others, all four in forested areas), about 30 minutes south of Huttonsville’s Rte 250 / 219 intersection. The last 3 or 4 miles south of the office are on a backcountry, mostly gravel road in a picturesque farming valley and forested areas. The cabins are reasonably close to outdoor areas such as Cheat Bridge, Gaudineer’s Knob, and Barton’s Knob. (Many of the outdoor attractions in the Potomac Highlands of WV are on quite narrow but two car passable gravel Forest Service roads with a steep drop off on one side, no guard rails, and perhaps a culvert on the other. Not a problem if you drive carefully) The babbling creek was only a few yards away from the cabin, with no human habitations close by. A nice setting just to relax. (We were on the go too much to do much of that; we almost hoped it would rain enough to force us to stay around the cabin, which had a nice porch glider.) The fully furnished cabin was thoroughly modern. The long kitchen table had five padded chairs. The well equipped kitchen had a full sized refrigerator, electric stove, a good microwave, toaster, and basket-type coffee maker (no coffee packets). Even a washer and dryer! Besides a double bed on the main level, a loft had two twin beds. As told, we did bring personal items such as soap, shampoo and hair dyer. There was a TV that could apparently play free videos, but could not, we were told, pull in any TV stations. There was no A/C, but there was a good overhead fan. Even though there had been record breaking heat in Elkins the day we checked in, the cabin was cool, and we were comfortable. We did not need the portable fan, which Suzi, the gracious owner, provided to us. The cabins might seem rather high priced ($130 - $150), but this included 12% tax, putting them about on the same level as a number of the Elkins area pretax accommodations ($116 - $134). From the outside, we looked at the Holly and Mountain cabins, which are fairly close to each other. We were glad we stayed in the more expensive Creek cabin with its easier parking.. Insects were not a problem, and there was not much traffic on the back country road. Our stay there compared favorably with any state park cabin we have stayed in.

Buy your groceries, including coffee packets, in a big town such as Elkins..

Room Tip: Buy your groceries in a big town such as Elkins.
