“Snowed in for the Weekend? No problem!”
Reviewed February 8, 2010

One thing you notice on the drive through West Virginia is the natural beauty of the mountainous landscape, even under 24'' of snow. The blizzard of 2010 was bearing down on us as my girlfriend, her border collie and I pulled into the Appalachian Cabins in early February. The cabin was spacious and very cozy, and the fireplace added to the rustic ambiance. The manager was very accomodating, and even allowed us to spend another night beyond our reservation because of the snow. Some contemporary amenities include a full kitchen (minus an oven), a large, flat screen television with satellite, and a four-person hot-tub. Be sure to pack your own food, because it is 20 mi. to the nearest town. Also, cell phone reception is hit-or-miss in the valley, but a quick drive up the road should give you a good signal.

So how did I spend the blizzard of 2010? In a hot tub at Seneca Rocks, WV - toasting to the great experience provided by Appalachian Cabins. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

My family andI have stayed at the cabins twice and both times were wonderful. The kids loved all the room and many activities to do. They had a volleyball net, fishing spots available, swing set, firepit, and much more. We were always finding things to do. The cabins are very private and in a beautiful part of Seneca Rocks. The hottub was the kids favorite part. We also stayed in one of the honeymoon cabins without the kids of course. The jaccuzi tub was huge and very relaxing! We were able to get free firewood for the fireplace which really set the atmospher. Both of my stays were a joy and I would recomend this place to everyone as a relaxing and funfilled getaway.

I was pleased with our stay. We had two small children and enjoyed our time together. They had toys for the kids to play with inside and a play ground outside. They really enjoyed the hot tub! Our room was very clean and at a great price! They are the best price we found for our family. We will be staying again! Thanks so much for our enjoyable stay.

I have been going to Appalachin Cabins for over three years.I go there once a year with a group of people.The owners are very polite.They give you free fire wood.Very cleanand very decorated.My favorite thing would have to be the hot tub they are very clean not overloaded with chlorine and it is a nice spot to hang with some friends.The bedding was dressed and cleaned nicely.They were there when i needed to pay my bill(they are not there on the weekends).There is no service but there is a payphone right across the street.I have stayed in the motel,the log home,honeymoon,and a family cabin they are alll so great I wouldn't know why someone would complain about them.They have very good heating,all the supplies you need,and surrounded with very nice acttivites to do.I will definately recommend anyone to stay there!

My fiance and I stayed at one of the honeymoon cabins....the cabin itself was beautiful and spacious, and the appliances were nice...everything else was awful. The fireplace chimney was stopped up, so the cabin filled with smoke when we lit a fire. ..imagine sitting down to enjoy a romantic glass of wine by the fireplace of your honeymoon cabin, only to end up hacking and coughing,eyes burning. The dishes were dirty, there were dead bugs in the coffeepot and open packages of food left in the cupboards. There was an abundance of flies, and the staff had apparently tried to remedy this by installing an outomatic bug spray dispenser (meant for open stables) in the living room...we thought that it was an air freshener, untill we looked closer. There were spiders in the jacuzzi, the dish remote was broken, the rug was ratty........bottom line, don't stay at these cabins!

The cabin was pretty conveniently located near major area attractions, and the inside was spacious and nicely decorated. They provide firewood for free, which was nice; we didn't try out the hot tub but they provided that as well. The back of the property is near the river and the surrounding scenery is fairly pleasant. The kitchen utensils, appliances, and bedding and linens they provided were more than sufficient and very clean. We had some minor heating problems (there were some cracks in the insulation) but there was plenty of hot water. The cabin is located next to the road so you will hear large trucks passing from time to time. But overall a very relaxing atmosphere and nice experience.

The cabin was dirty. Sheets in at least 1 bedroom had not been changed. Dried animal dropping and underwear were found in the loft. Stopped at the office several times to pay our bill and no one was ever there. There was no phone in the cabin and no cell phone service. Flies were bad, and what we thought was an air freshener on the wall above the kitchen table, turned out to be fly spray. The one bathroom and outdoor hot tub were nice. Would never stay there again.

tashina2006, manager at Appalachian Cabins, responded to this review, October 4, 2009
I feel that our cabins are very clean. As for the complaint about no cell phone service that is beyond our control; none of the other cabin rental places get cell service either. Flies do come into the cabins or any place for that matter when the doors are left open so yes we do have the top of the line spray like restuarants do to kill them. Some one is not in the office 24/7 but is on call via phone. It would cost to much to pay someone to sit there and would therefore raise the cost of the cabin rentals. I just wanted to clear up the confusion to anyone reading this comment.
