“Unique lodging - disappointing stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2009

We recently stayed in the Jerico Pre Civil War Cabins. My husband originally booked the Milroy Cabin however they had overbooked and had to call us back to move us to the Bushwhacker Cabin. He agreed however they failed to state it was not located with the other cabins (approx 20 min north) and it was a "pet friendly cabin" which was not noted on the web. We arrive and the cabin was interesting & clean with the exception of the serious flea infestation. We were eaten alive - it was awful. You would see them crawling on your ankles and socks. We mentioned it and were told it was a pet cabin and they usually bomb a couple of times a year but it had not been done in awhile. No apology however they mentioned when we returned they would give us a discount on a future stay. We were not looking for a discount but maybe an offer to move into another cabin or the B & B. It is unfortunate - We loved the area and would have liked to return. On the way home we stopped at a laundremat to wash all clothes and spray the car as to not bring them home. Ugh!

I've always loved a real log cabin and The Bushwacker is perfect. It is a genuine Civil War era log cabin with a tin roof and stone chimney that has been re-constructed and sympathetically added onto creating a cozy blend of historically rustic log and chinking exterior with a casually comfortable interior. It sits at a separate, very private location from the other cabins and B&B at the base of a mountain and on the edge of National Park land; excellent hiking trails in the woods right out the door! The living room has comfortable furniture, a soaring loft open to the roof/ceiling, is dominated by a massive rustic chandelier and a huge stone fireplace (gas w/ remote) and cable TV, books, games, maps, area info, etc... The downstairs bedroom has a queen sized bed, on the firmer side, a large bathroom w/washer+dryer, plenty of extra towels, then a wide hallway to the enclosed, covered back porch and the hot tub, a gas grill, and some table & chairs. The bright kitchen is lined with sunny windows, has a separate eat-in area that seats 6 adults easily and has everything, including a dishwasher, but the groceries! The spiral staircase in the living room leads to a dormitory sleeping loft with 3 large beds. The views extending from the covered front porch across a meadow to the mountains beyond is a perfect place to watch the deer or build a campfire in the stone ring. There was another cabin under construction nearby The Bushwacker but it seemed far enough away not to impinge on privacy or views. We have rented The Bushwacker 2 times and always found it very clean, with comfortable AC and baseboard heating, and the staff friendly, especially Lindy. We look forward to spending more time relaxing at The Bushwacker again soon, especially with easy access any season from a long flat driveway and Snowshoe nearby! The 2 hour drive between I-81 and Marlinton must be stunning in Autumn!! Amazing views!! See their website at www.jericobb.com and FFI or to see photos PM me at my TA mailbox. Enjoy! --Sandy

  • Liked — Authentic, rustic yet comfortable, fireplace, hot tub, cable, privacy, remoteness
  • Disliked — The same route offering amazing cliftop views between I-81 and Marlinton can cause car-sickness!

We were advised NOT to go to West Virginia by our new friends from our son's wedding in Ohio. They said it was somewhere to go THROUGH not TO! We absolutely loved it. Fantastic scenery. we found some cabins at Marlinton...Jerico, just on the 219 into the town. Hot tub, comfortable bed,all of the equipment you need (note.NEED, not necessarily desire..but we improvised!) Lovely staff. Just try it!
