“Slept in a little slice of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2010

We stayed in the Yank cabin for a couple of nights while biking the Greenbrier River Trail. The cabin had originally been built on Droop Mtn. and was used as a place to tend to wounded soldiers during the Battle of Droop Mtn. A guy named Tom, Jr. owns this place and looks for opportunities to dismantel these beautiful, historic cabins and reconstructs them using a lot of artistry and skill.

The Yank is nestled into the hillside at the end of a holler. It is in fairly close proximity to the main house and a couple of other cabins, but it is very private. It is also extremely quiet with only the sounds of nature to listen to - no road noise here. The noisiest thing we heard were the angus cows waking us up one morning which was actually quite nice.

This cabin is small but fun and the very private back porch with hot tub adds to the living space. Only one cook at a time in the kitchen and the fridge is one of those small bar refridgerators; still it was adequate for us for a couple of days. The kids loved climbing the ladder to their sleeping loft. I just wish there were screens in the two loft windows to allow cool evening air in as it can get very hot in the loft even with the fan.

We went to stay in the 2 person cabin - Patton - and had a very good experience. I will recommend this place for its location and the way cabins are built and decorated. Their website is a very good source of information and is NOT misleading at all. Prompt emails and calls; good directions and excellent service left a good mark of this place.

In all this was a very good choice and I recommend this BnB; specially for couples!

We arrived at the cabin surrounded by 3 1/2 ft. of beautiful snow and breath taking views. Surprising to my husband I had no difficulty climbing the long driveway in my "little sportscar". The cabin was quite clean, more that enough room, warm and comfortable....& very quiet. We were joined by my son, his wife, 3 grandchildren (7,4, 6 mos) & were amazed at how well we all fit & had our own space. The renovations are done well, both inside and outside. I only ask that the electrical appliances ( i.e. coffee maker, grill, etc.) be ckecked often & replaced when needed. The whole area around Marlinton is one of the most beautiful I have seen and the most friendly people.

I already knew from the website that I would have 16 Union soldiers buried in the back of my cabin, "The Yank". But the experience was a little surreal. Perhaps it was the full moon and the heavy mist we had during our stay, but the contribution of all these things to the atmosphere here is undeniable. The cabin itself was definately "modern rustic"-full plumbing, a small TV,gas log fireplace (controls were a little touchy), and of course the hot tub out back. If you enjoy a good herd of cows out the back door in the morning, they come with the place too! Part of the greeting committee is a charming calico kitty that has rarely missed a meal.
Furniture and things like pans, glassware (quite an eclectic collection)and appliances were generally in good condition though far from new. I must say the place was very clean however, especially the bathroom and shower where one can usually expect problems, but not here.
This particular cabin is the furthest from the main house on the primary property, but still closer than I expected. Parking space is very good and not at all treacherous. We peeked into the other cabins nearby and were amused by the heart shaped jacuzzis.
We spent two nights. The day we arrived there was a very large tree down in the back yard that looked like it had fallen half a century ago. When we returned the next day after sight seeing the tree had moved up the hill into the pasture! We thought the resident soldier ghosts had been at work, but we were assured by the owners that it had actually been a man with a chain saw and the tree had only been down since earlier in the summer. I think I'll just think what I want to think.

For eight years now, a group of friends and I have arranged a get-together in Marlinton, and we stay at the Lewis cabin - sleeps 6, hot tub, full kitchen, laundry. The rest stay at the B&B. Area is beautiful, cabin and B&B is very nice and fairly priced. We've never had a problem. And we're going back next week.

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!
