Our family of five stayed at the Chestnut cabin in Hico during the third week of August. The cabin is only three years old, and has every amenity imaginable. Three bedrooms, a loft with full size futon and two and a half bathrooms; almost as large as our home! The cabin shares fifty acres with another cabin and the owner's home, but feels very private. However, it is probably within two hundred yards of Route 60. Fortunately, the road is a scenic byway, so it isn't too heavily traveled, but some semi trucks and motorcycles could be heard. This did not keep us awake at night, or disturb us during our stay. The location is convenient to many outdoor activities including horseback riding and whitewater rafting. We rafted through Rivermen, going on the Upper New because of the age of our children. The trip and the staff were great, even lunch was better than we expected. For horseback riding, we used the stables at Babcock State Park. One of the owners, Sue, was very accommodating. If you like pizza, then definitely eat at Pies and Pints in nearby Fayetteville. There were some other recommended places, but the menus didn't suit most of the members of our family. The cabin is in close proximity to the New River Gorge Bridge and also Hawk's Nest State Park. We highly recommend the tram and jet boat rides for a unique ride into the gorge and a close-up view of the bridge. The state of West Virginia is beautiful and continues to be one of our favorite vacation destinations.
