My son and I recently spent 3 nights in the Ruckman cabin while mountain biking in the nearby Monanghela Nat'l Forest and Greenbrier River Trail . Jerico is less than a mile from the River Trail, so very easy access, while dozens of national forest trails are within a half hour drive, off the Highland Scenic Road. Our host Lindy was very friendly and helpful, both in booking a cabin and after arrival. The Ruckman cabin itself was perfect for the two of us, with ample sleeping areas including queen br downstairs and loft with a twin and double. The kitchen was modern and well equipped, the bathroom updated and very clean, the family/living area roomy enough to relax, play games, read or watch TV. The covered front porch,overlooking a stream about 50 ft below, was a great place to relax after a day of riding. Ruckman is very quiet and private , sharing a long drive with just one other cabin that is rarely used (residence of owner's mother, who primarily lives in the main house). Yet in less than 5 minutes you can be in Marlinton to access the river trail, grocery stores or restaurants (we recommend Dory's). Only negatives of the cabin were 1)water has a distinct sulfur odor, which takes a little getting used to, especially from the shower and 2) at times water pressure in shower was low. However these were minor relative to an overall very positive experience !
