A great cabin and location I would recommend to any motorcyclist looking for good riding!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is in a great location if you are planning a bike trip. The roads are beautiful and you can ride to different parks and overlooks for days. The road in is a little rough on the way back to the cabin but we didn't have any issues getting in or out. We would definitely recommend it to anyone. Wv is awesome and so are the people.

Lovely Peaceful Cabin in the Woods

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is in a peaceful wooded area close to so many adventures near the New River. You can even take a short hike on the property right from your cabin -perfect for our 2 year old on the morning of our departure! We loved the covered outdoor seating area (it rained off and on during our stay), the fire pit, the front porch swings, the hot tub, and the cleanliness of the cabin. We found everything we needed for cooking our meals there (bring your own supplies including spices/oil, etc). And generally the cabin was a perfect base for our outdoor adventures. We've stayed at a fair number of cabins in different locations throughout West Virginia and this is among the best! The only things stopping it from being a 5 star review were fairly minor, but still impacted our total ease. The firewood available on site was either soaking wet or had dry rot and did not burn well (and came with a fee - which I would not have cared about but the VRBO description of the cabin says "firewood" which implies to me available for free); the upstairs bedroom doesn't have a door, so it made it unsuitable for young children (due to noise traveling up and being at the top of the stairs); the bed we stayed in is too soft - springs are no longer tightly coiled. But all together, we had a great stay and found the ease of accessing the cabin and departure great; and would rent again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We restock the firewood shed often and we had gotten down to the bottom of a pile of stacked wood so it may have been a bit old. The wood shed is dry so I am not sure why it was wet unless we hauled it in the rain. We replenish wood every week or so. The beds in the loft area are tucked in quite away from the entrance so I was not aware of the noise issue. I will look into it. We will also check the beds. If the coils are bad, the mattress will be replaced immediately. We hope you come back and stay with us again. Cindi Ruckpaul

Perfect Place to Ring in the New year!

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful stay at Cabin #1 in Hemlock Haven. This was the halfway point between myself and some friends in North Carolina and we all met up for New Years Eve Weekend. The cabin is beautiful! Very clean and very well-stocked. We got about 4 inches of snow so the scenery was breath taking. I would recommend having an all wheel drive vehicle in the winter! I'm glad I did. Great location, beautiful scenery, I hope to go back soon!

The cabin was comfortable and peacefully located in quiet area outside Fayetteville.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our first trip to Fayetteville, WV! Our cabin was close to town and the many wonderful hiking trails in the area! The cabin had everything needed to enjoy our getaway! We enjoyed the hot tub, cover deck, and the fire pit. The cabin was located in a quiet area that was close to town and all freeways but felt isolated even though we had other cabins close by. Such beautiful views with no crowds! Peaceful getaway! We hiked at Hawk’s Nest Stste Park, Diamond Point and Long View Point in the New River Gorge area, and numerous smaller trails! The restaurants were wonderful with friendly staff. We enjoyed Dirty Ed’s BBQ, Pies and Pints, and Secret Sandwich Society (our favorite!).

We are in the heart of West Virginia's outdoor playground. We are minutes from the New River, the Gauley River, Summersville Lake, Hawks Nest State Park, New River Gorge National Forest and Babcock State Park. The variety of actvivities include whitewater rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, rock climbing, swimming, fishing, boating, ATV riding, zip lining, golfing and more. New in 2010 is a interpretive bridge walk under the New River Gorge Bridge over 900 feet in the air. We are the place to stay for the Bridge Day Festival and the Appalachian Stringband Festival. The spectacular scenery is worh the trip alone.

Other Activities: Boating, Wildlife Viewing, Snowboarding
