I would recommend this retreat to anyone our cabin was clean ,stocked with everything you needed it was so private and peaceful no noise or any nonsense Cabin was so cozy and the hot tub was amazing our family will be returning in late spring ...
We were a party of 12 people in town to raft the Gauley. We stayed in The Meadows large group cabin. We had 3 adult couples, who all stayed in the upstairs bedrooms, and 6 21-22 year olds who all stayed in the downstairs rooms. The bunk room was perfect for our group! Anna left cookies and souvenir glasses to take home. The cabin is just as pictured. Clean (except for a few tiny ants in the kitchen), lots of room, lots of towels, shampoo/conditioner in the bathrooms, plenty of dishes and glasses, etc. The young ones used the hot tub a couple of times and reported the water is hot but the jets barely move the water. Great place to stay!
Anna was so nice. She even baked cookies for us. The cabin was super clean, comfortable and well appointed. Its also close to Adventures on the Gorge. We would definitely stay here again if we visit the area again. Do print out the map provided before you go. It was helpful.
My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here. Cabin was very charming and cozy, clean, and in a superb location to all activities. The little kitchen has everything you could want while on vacation. The hosts were extremely responsive, friendly, and thoughtful. Our pup had a great time too. Would definitely recommend Opossum Creek Retreat to anyone looking to visit the area!
Facilities were as advertised, well outfitted and clean. Location is isolated in the woods but that was as expected. Close to New River Bridge, Hawks Nest State Park and Fayatteville. The only problem we had was that we filed written reservation form requesting Cabin 3 and, in return , we received a confirmed written reservation for Cabin 4 along with code to enter Cabin4. Since Cabins 3 & 4 are identical and in the same area, we did not object to the switch. However, after about 90 minutes in the cabin we were informed that a mistake had been made and that we would have to pack up and move to Cabin 3. This was a little unsettling and inconvenient to say the least!
This was a perfect cabin in the woods. They designed the property so the cabins felt secluded. The cabind had a perfect homey touch, the owners even baked cookies to welcome you into the cabin. Our trip was for an anniversary get away, but we plan to go back to bring the kids. You could easily fit a family of 4 in the cabin. All the ammenktkes were great, a hot tub, kitchen, grill and firepit were perfect.
We greatly enjoyed our 3 night stay in Cabin 3. Great location for visiting New River Gorge National Park- only a 10 minute drive. Town of Fayetteville was less than a 15 minute drive. Even though civilization was nearby, the cabin felt quite secluded in the woods. The cabin was well stocked with everything you can think of kitchen wise. The paper products were name brand! The hot tub was fantastic and very clean. Loved the enclosed porch. The entire cabin was very clean. Internet was fast. AC worked well. Loved having a gas grill instead of dealing with charcoal. Anna was a lovely host, she had thought of everything to have in the cabin to make a comfortable stay. She even left delicious fresh baked cookies for us on our arrival. My only regret was that we didn’t stay longer.…
Excellently appointed cabin just the right amount of space, clean and comfortable. Hot tub was great and private. Perfect location- in the woods but not too far from anything- would definitely stay here again. Excellent experience booking and follow up after check in- even had cookies waiting.
We spent 2 nights at El Gordo, one of the cabins at the retreat. It was super clean and comfy. My grandkids enjoyed the hot tub and firepit. There were many good suggestions for dining and activities from Anna , the manager. She was wonderful and available for questions. we will certainly be looking forward to our next trip .Thanks, Anna.
Stayed in Cabin 2. Me and my teen kids. The drive there was easy. The cabin is really in the woods. The screened in porch with hot tub was amazing. The cabin itself exceeded my expectations from cleanliness to service. Anna was super nice in booking this last minute reservation and made sure i knew how to reach her if any issues. Everything we needed was there...linens...cooking utensils....soaps...etc. The cabin was spacious, has AC, wifi, comfortable beds, nice quilts, sufficient cookware, etc. We stayed for 2 nights. Altho quiet and peaceful tucked away in the woods, it was super close to Adventures on Gorge and New & Gauley rafting. Definitely recommend. Hope to return!!!
