My wife and I were able to escape our parenting duties for two nights to this lovely cabin (cabin 4). The cabin was tucked into the woods and was nice and private. We were there on the weekend before Christmas and were blessed with a nice snowstorm to really make it the perfect setting for a cabin stay (in my opinion). The gas fireplace was perfect for cozying up to after hot tubbing. The large hot tub was on the screened and covered deck that overlooked a little valley with a babbling brook. The cabin was not huge, but was great for romance! There was a king or queen size bed as well as a set of bunk beds if you have to bring the kids. There was also a nice little counter with a sink and stove and a little fridge. The bathroom was small, but had a cool door and a really cool sink with a waterfall basin that looked to be custom made.
On Saturday my wife and I ventured out for a walk in the sunshine and snow. We started out the driveway and passed a fee of the other cabins that are there and came to the interpretive trail that tracks through the woods and along the babbling brook. it was a nice clear trail to walk along and enjoy the beautiful country that is West Virginia!
In the evenings we ventured through the snow to Fayetteville. On Friday we dined at Gumbos. The food was great Cajun! I had some fried craw dads and a bowl of something I'll call seafood stew. It was awesome! The food really warmed my wife and I up and the setting was quaint and romantic too! The second night we dined at Pies and Pints. They have large selection of pizzas and other foods. I cannot recall which pizza we got but they were very tasty! It has a bar as well as plenty of dining area. It was not as intimate as Gumbos, but it was a place we would definitely go to again. On Sunday morning as we left the cabin, we went to the Cathedral Cafe in Fayetteville. It is an old church renovated into a restaurant. We had waffles and pancakes and it was really good. The restaurant had an open, yet comfortable feel to it, with wood floors, books and nicknacks available for purchase. Not your everyday diner for sure!
This cabin was a great experience and I would recommend it to anybody looking to get away from it all! Though we had a low key stay there, it was set in the heart of white water country. For the thrill seeker/outdoor enthusiast, there is plenty of outdoor adventures close by. The New River gorge is right there, as well as Fayetteville and it's small town charm.
Go there! You won't regret it!
