This property is lovely! Despite a cold front moving in we did spend most of the time outdoors. The road leading to the property is great for riding bikes or walking. Does have potholes, but nothing extreme. Wasn’t able to enjoy the river. Water was...More

My family (myself, my brother, his wife and 2 pre teens, our mom, and my dog) stayed in Larisa's home in the woods for an extended weekend in June 2017. We loved it! The river literally in the backyard, the wraparound deck, the hot tub,...More

About the neighborhood
Lush, wooded, and relatively secluded. This property has neighbors on one side and across the road, with open fields and the river on the other two sides.

The location is remote yet accessible. Many amenities in 7k population Elkins is 20-25 minutes, and the ski areas are within (Canaan, Timberline, and White Grass 1 hour, Snowshoe 1:15 hour).
Getting around
PLEASE READ: The cabin is remote, so even in clear weather its narrow mountain gravel road can be concerning to those not experienced. Depending on whether the road crew has done repairs recently there may be potholes. In most cases you can drive around them, but there may be a few on the way that you’ll just need to slowly drive through. There are also no guardrails on the road, but it has several turnouts to allow cars to pass. The gravel is not suitable for street motorcycles.

In winter months you should expect snowy or icy roads. At times the snow can be deep and it takes 24-48 hours before it is plowed, therefore you should be prepared to be flexible about travel.

For winter rental we now require 4WD or to keep chains for your car i
