We were in the area for a weekend of Gauley River whitewater rafting. The cabins at Laurel Ridge were by far the cheapest in the area and were only about 15-20 minutes from where we were rafting. The cabin comes equipped with the basics that you will need, we didn't do any cooking, but I know there were enough things supplied to make it possible. You will want to bring your own bath soap, as this is not a standard hotel and none is supplied; we also went to a nearby Walmart and picked up paper towels and Kleenex, but otherwise we had everything we needed. Our cabin had two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. There is a TV in the room, but is only good for DVDs, so pack some if you are planning on spending any time in the cabin. The owners were very friendly from the time I inquired about booking a cabin until the time we left. We had a small span of time where there was an issue with the power in the area and the owner left us a note on our door detailing what had happened and how long the outage would last. The outage didn't last long and we were back to our plans in no time. Overall, this is a great, quiet, laid back place to stay. It is kind of what I would consider to be in the middle of nowhere, so if you are looking for a lot of nightlife or restaurants, you're not going to find it here. It was perfect for our needs and added a little something extra to the trip. Would recommend to others looking for an affordable, relaxing getaway.
