This place was absolutely disgusting and clearly they do not change their sheets or towels in between guests. We spent most of our time outside by a campfire so when we went to finally go to bed and pull back the sheets we saw the clearly had stains from a previous couple having relations on the bed. The stains were in the same spot on the top sheet and soaked through to the bottom sheet so it was very clear what it was. The office was closed at this time so we had to attempt to sleep in folding chairs we had brought until the morning. We went to the office first thing in the morning for a refund and were told that it was hard water stains. Clearly this wasn't true so we brought the sheets down to the office to show the. When they realized what it was they told us that we had done that ourselves and the sheets were not like that when we got there. We left after the staff threatened to have their brothers come beat us up because they would not refund our money. I advise anyone who values their health to stay away from yokums

We stayed in the camp ground the bathroom/ showers were filthy and not kept up. Mold, paint peeling up off floors,(down off walls and every other way) ripped out screens bugs galore, tp was not even put in rollers just stacked on the filthy sink. Showers curtains falling down.

No trash cans or dumpsters I had to take the trash up to the office to ask what to do with it, the guy cleaning the tables was very nice and came out to take it from me ( hope he washed his hands before he went back to cleanning dishes!)

I took my grandson to Seneca for their climbing school, and I sat on their comfortable breezy porch to watch the action.
The room was quite and well laid out. The staff was friendly and helpful.
I enjoyed the stay and will go back.

Room Tip: Upstairs toward the back for the best view.

We did not realize that Cabin 21, which we had reserved, was part of a duplex, with perhaps the possibility of noisy neighbors. Cabins 23 and 20 were singles, with #23 further from the road. We chose it. It was a clean cabin, with a full sized refrigerator and an electric stove. The outdated microwave had no power setting, only time, no turntable and was positioned such that it was hard to clean up any splatters. The kitchen / living room area was quite spacious, but the table had uncomfortable wooden chairs. However, the sofa and double bed were comfortable. Lighting could have been better. We could not get the out-of-reach ceiling fan’s lights to turn on. Kitchenware was adequate, but there was only one soup bowl. The coffee maker came with lots of coffee bags. The bathroom did not have much space for towels. There was no hair dryer. We didn’t use the cracked Jacuzzi or the loft with two single beds. The nearby Yokum’s general store had limited grocery items. After looking at the Yokum Restaurant menu, we decided to eat our meals in the cabin. The cabin came with quite a few other minor annoyances: a poor fitting front screen door with a big hole in it, no bathmat, threadbare bath towels, no holder for soap or shampoo in the shower, scant closet space. The deck had an old rusted folding metal chair and a fabric chair that may have been okay. This cabin seems to be an old unit that has not had recent renovations. The cabin overlooked a nice bubbling river. Yokum’s does not seem to have much in the way of competitors in the area. It was acceptable to us, but we’ve been in much nicer places and, over the years, in some worse places. The roadside cabins need modernizing. Yokum’s has numerous other accommodations besides the roadside cabins, including larger, apparently more modern cabins, a two story motel, and a campground. We recommend Yokum’s, but without any enthusiasm. It is close to WV’s highest mountain, Spruce Knob, and very close to the Seneca Rocks recreation area.

Room Tip: Buy your groceries in a big town such as Elkins.

I admit that I did not spend a night there; I am a local resident and volunteered there several years ago. I have read many reviews here with complaints about cleanliness and room inspections. Please be advised that there are modern rental units as well as rental units that have been there since the 1960s or so. These are the closest rentals to Seneca Rocks as is possible.

If you could only imgaine the number of vacations the units have endured for families over the years and the treatment the rentals have been subjected to, you would understand that not all will look modern. As for the service and outdated furnishings...remember, this is a privately owned business rather than that of a high class resort or 5 star hotel.

I have encountered folks of many various groups including the archaeologists that constructed the 'dig' at the Seneca Rocks Visitors Center in the 1990s. Those archaeologists became mainstayers at Yokum's as well as spelunkers, rock climbers, fisherman, game hunters and other tourist visitors. They seem to return year after year.

I would hope you have a nice stay at Yokum's; first inspect your rental and let them know if there is a concern.
