“Great location, clean, stocked. Awesome place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2010

Buddy's and I stayed at El Gordo. Eight of us total for a bachelor party. Good enough amount of room for all of us. The owner supplied us with a map to get to the cabin and we found it, even in the dark on our ride into town. He even made us cookies! The cabin was stocked with everything we needed to cook our own food and it was centrally located for all of our activities. Between climbing, rafting and hitting Summersville lake as well as the restaurants in Fayetteville, we were within 20 minutes of everything. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a great spot to vacation.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2009

I stayed at the largest cabin - the Meadows, with a group of 16 a few weeks ago. The cabin is fantastic, with a very large common area, and enormous grounds. It was very well maintained, and had a new feel to it. The bunkbeds weren't so ideal for the adults, but it wasn't a huge deal. Overall, it represented a great value, and I recommend it highly.

The reason for the half star deduction is the poor communication prior to our visit. I often had to leave several messages before hearing back a few days later. Additionally, we did not receive directions (nor are they on the website), so we used google maps, which led us to the wrong place. We drove for nearly 2 hours at 3 am trying to find the place -- my group was NOT happy.
To be fair, when we locked ourselves out one night, the owner was terrific and came by quickly to open up the door for us.

To sum up - a wonderful time -- just be sure to get proper directions before coming.

We stayed there over July 4 weekend, and I would definitely stay there again. The cabins are really nice. Each cabin has a private hot tub on a screened in porch, and that was really great. The kitchen is fully stocked with plates, pots, pans, etc, so we were able to save a lot of money by cooking our own food. The setting is extremely peaceful and quiet - in the woods.

The only issue we had, was that the wireless internet service was sometimes very slow and sometimes even we could not connect at all. But, we didn't come out to the woods to sit online and surf the net, so that wasn't a big deal. Actually it was kind of a relief.

Since you are renting a cabin and not staying in a hotel room, there was no housekeeping service. They provided plenty of towels, but if you think you might need extra towels. I would talk to them in advance about how to arrange that.

Altogether it was a wonderful stay and I highly recommend it.
