“A piece of heaven”
Reviewed 6 days ago for a stay in June 2018
NEW

This was the second time my wife and I went to the cabin. She actually gave me the vacation for our wedding anniversary and birthday gift. The cabin is near the Green Bank Observatory and Snowshoe Resort. Cass Scenic Railroad is also nearby and I recommend you visit there, it really gives you a good time and beautiful look at the state from the views on the train, some are breath taking. The cabin itself has all the amenities of home and sits in the middle of the woods. You may hear the neighbors but you do not see them. You are pretty much left alone. Frank and Mic check on you but do not bother you. They are great hosts and really make you feel welcome. Oh and you get farm fresh eggs as well.

“Snowshoe Ski Trip”
Reviewed February 20, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This cabin is off the beaten path, rests on 85 wooded acres (great hikes!), and overlooks a babbling brook. It's near SO MUCH! From state and national parks and kayaking operations to skiing at Snowshoe. Cabin is well furnished and incredibly well stocked--bonus farm fresh eggs provided!! No wifi or TV was clearly advertised *and* appreciated!! Open floor plan with loft is perfect for a family of 4-6 people. It would benefit from some modest updates (loft stairs and linoleum flooring), but overall, this cabin is a hidden gem!!! We will be back!!!

“Well Appointed Vacation Home”
Reviewed June 18, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Quiet cabin-style home. The unit is well prepared for guests. Frank, the host, was very congenial and attentive to any request. It felt like staying at a friends house, which is - I think, high praise for a host. A great place to stay if you want to get away and relax. Visit the resident beaver ponds. Stay up late and listen to the owls.

“Complete Bliss”
Reviewed May 2, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I wish I could give at least 10 stars to this beautiful serene cabin and the very attentive hosts,Frank and Mick.
If you like total comfort,from the beds to the fully equipted kitchen then this is the place for your vacation.I became so spoiled,when I returned home,I wanted new plates and silverware as well as new beds and bedding.The veiws were amazing as well as the deck.The grill was wonderful as was the dvd and cd collections.My dog and I danced to "The best of swing" while my husband grilled our diner on the deck.What fun! They had every type of music imaginable.A short path away was the beaver pond.My first ,but not my last ,as we will be back in the fall..We sat in front of a romantic fire every night in the wonderful fireplace.Outside the fire pit was great.There were white lights strung along the deck and front of the cabin for night time enjoyment.The fresh eggs ( a gift from Frank and Mick) were the best.Everything was a delight.
Thank you ,my hosts,for the memories .See you soon.

“Hidden Jewel”
Reviewed August 25, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

After a busy week on the road trip Chicago-Philadelphia-Washington, we decided to decompress at some natural retreat. We could not have chosen a better place! The cabin is located off any busy road, the silence and serenity there are amazing. The cabin itself is very romantic. It's well appointed, furnished and decorated with impeccable taste. Our two teenage boys were thrilled to sleep in the loft with pull up ladder. My husband and I enjoyed our evenings with the glass of wine on the porch, listening to the creek below.
For those who enjoy hiking (as we do), the Kumbrabow National Forest is very close, where you can take a lovely walk to the top of the trail and be stunned with awe. The amazing panoramic view of the Appalachian Mountains will take your breath away every time you see it.
Frank, the owner, deserve a separate mention. We felt that we met an old friend who is absolutely delighted to see us and share his love for this amazing land. He gave us an unforgettable ride on his RTV through the forest! Thank you and we hope to be back one day.

“Best vacation EVER!”

My partner and I found a little piece of heaven, so to speak. We were amazed at the minute details that were put into place at the cabin. It truly is a home away from home, only difference is that you don't have the daily stress factors playing on your every nerve. When someone tells you to stop and smell the coffee, do just that. We enjoyed the quiet, restful, fully equipped cabin including fresh eggs. We also enjoyed the welcome we received upon our arrival. We have never met more gracious hosts than Frank and Mick. The cabin is simply beautiful. There are not enough adjectives to describe just how amazing this place is. We recommend it to everyone who asks how our trip went and plan to return later. Elkwater takes you back into time, if you will; no cell phones, no TV only you and the other people who are there with you. Rediscover yourself, enjoy the simplicity of life before some of modern technology came about. The cabin sits in a valley of mountains surrounding it and they are simply gorgeous. The fresh air, oh my, no smog. In closing, my partner and I have told the owners that we did not want to leave, that is how much we liked it.

“"Amazing Wild W.V. Cabin"!”
Reviewed May 30, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

As soon as we hit the back mountain road to this cabin we knew we had found our perfect "get away". If you love to be in the mountains & be secluded while being wrapped in luxury then you have found the place to stay:) The pictures do not show all the special little details that have been added to enhance your stay. We had farm fresh eggs, coffee & tea provided for us by Frank & Mick. The bedding was plush, the indoor fire place a great place to sit while reading a book & listening to the gentle rain as it hit the tin roof. Wonderful covered front porch with plenty of seating. There was a fire ring outdoors with fire wood cut & ready to make "S'mores":) We def. plan on making another trip to the mountains to enjoy Frank & Mick's lil' piece of heaven.
