Why Theresa C Johnson chose Greenbrier County

Located in the Lewisburg, Greenbrier County, WV area. There is a breathtaking panaramic view.This is not a cookie cutter home. It is solidly built with 4x4 construction, a custom built cedar home with the interior finished with natural wood from top to bottom, 2 stone fireplaces and a hot tub sanitized with an ionizer system. The setting and ambiance gives you a perfectly comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. It is totally secluded, there are no homes that you can see near you for your privacy. There is a second cedar home down the road, also totally private to the other, but walking distance, that could be used in addition for large groups.

It is central to events and tourist attractions, such as Historic Lewisburg, Lost World Caverns Caves, Organ Cave, Snowshoe Ski Resort, Winter Place Ski Resort, The Greenbrier Resort, The New Orleans Saints Training Camp, The Greenbrier River, New and Gauley River for River Rafting, Bridge Jumping, Kayaking, Swimming, Blue Bend State Park for picnics, swimming, fishing, with wildlife and scenery everywhere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This Review was written in the Lodge's Guest Book and this is what was said:



Our stay was from April 28th to August 10, 2012. This is our second year staying at Vista View. We come to the Lewisburg area every year. My husband's company does the bleachers and floors for the PGA. So we get to enjoy this house, the West Virginia mountains, and wonderful summer weather! We have enjoyed day trips to Snowshoe Ski Resort, Cass Railroad and the Natural Bridge. Take a cup of coffee and enjoy the mornings on the back deck....sunrise is outstanding! Deer with fawns are hear when we are. There are many other animals to be seen as well as a big variety of birds. Enjoy...we have!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

The home is very private, with a gorgeous view out the back windows/balcony. There aren't other homes in sight. It's beautiful and peaceful.

The kitchen was stocked with everything you'd need to cook meals, and the living area was nice and open to the kitchen/dining, for a good social environment. There's a big TV, but no wifi. A good chance to unplug.

The town of Lewisburg was a big surprise... it's adorable, with upscale boutiques, bakeries, shops. It was so adorable, I wish I had spent more time exploring it. It's about a 35 minute drive from the home. Also, we explored the underground caverns, and that was definitely interesting and worth it. There are also windy country roads near the house of you want to get out and walk. If not, the house is a perfect cozy place to relax.

Theresa was great to work with, and stayed in contact with us leading up to our arrival. If the opportunity presents itself, we would stay here again!

Owner's Response: A chance to take a break and be refreshed is truly important. Even though you want to unplug, you can still access the internet and have cell or laptop connection. So glad you were able to enjoy the home, with its great panoramic views from the home and its roofed wrap-around porch, and get some relax time, and also discover what the area has to offer. Visiting the downtown area of Lewisburg, which is the shopping district for this home, is such a pleasant scenic drive to this interesting classy, yet truly Historic town. There are a few public Caves guests can visit there, and they are very interesting. There are many other events and locations of interest that you can discover the next time you visit. Thank you for being good guests, and I hope you decide to visit on another occasion. Remember, a Discount is given for repeat customers. See you soon!

Great Place for a get away!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at this beautiful cabin. We had a group of 3 couples for a Super Bowl weekend. Cabin was very clean and accommodated us all very well. Cooked our meals in the large kitchen.Theresa was very easy to work with. Definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for recommending my vacation rental home at Vista View in Greenbrier County, WV. All of my guests that visit at this home, just love it, and it pleases me to know that everyone is happy and content with their wonderful stays at Vista View. You can't beat the panoramic views! It's location tends to be a great central location to most states for family and friends to meet. We take pride in accommodating and pleasing our guests as best as we can, and keeping it clean and comfortable. The kitchen is easy for preparing meals, and with its large counter tops, it helps in setting up buffet style for large, or small groups for their great events and celebrations. Hope to see you all again in the future!

Perfect Thanksgiving vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (and our 2 pups) LOVED our time at Vista View Lodge! For 20 years now, I look for the perfect Thanksgiving getaway and we hit the jackpot. The location is perfect and offered tons of solitude and hiking. We even found many piles of black bear 'droppings'! The oversized outdoor hot tub is great for relaxing star gazing, all 5 of us loved getting in it nightly while appreciating the nature surrounding us. While the cabin itself is not luxurious, it surely is cozy, comfortable, and spacious. The décor is charming and we felt like we were at home immediately. It met all of our needs and has a well stocked kitchen which is a necessity for cooking a Thanksgiving meal. We especially loved the open concept of the house with the beautiful views. The huge wraparound deck was amazing and I'm sure it gets lots of grilling use in the summer months! Theresa was great to work with and very responsive. I also would suggest future guests visit the Lost Caverns, such a great experience for us and our kids.

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cabin with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your complimenting and great review. I sure am glad that the home at Vista View hit the JACKPOT for you after 20 years of searching for the perfect Thanksgiving getaway! I always try to make my guests' vacation as comfortable as I can, from the booking process through the time while staying and enjoying the home at Vista View. It is quite unique and private. You can't beat those views. And with the roofed wrap around porch, it doesn't matter if it rains or snows, you can still enjoy the great views relaxing in your hot tub, swinging on the porch swing, rocking in the rocking chairs, or grilling and eating on the outdoor patio table set. I noticed your remark saying that the" cabin itself is not luxurious, but it surely is cozy, comfortable, and spacious". First, calling it a cabin sounds like a small minimal structure in the woods. I guess because it is in the woods, most folks think that it must be a cabin. This is a large well constructed cedar home, built with 2X6 construction for added insulation, and has all the amenities of a well equipped large home with digital thermostat for central heat and air conditioning for efficiency and comfort. With the warmth of the interior with its wood from the ceiling, walls, floors, and two fireplaces, it is very welcoming. Some guests do feel it is luxurious. I guess everyone has different standards. It may not have Sub-Zero or Viking appliances, but does have quality to the appliances, such as an over sized convection oven, etc.. Thank you for being great guests, and do remember that you will be given a Discount on your next stay as repeat guests. Hope to see you soon!

I think a review always comes down to two simple q

  • 5 of 5

I think a review always comes down to two simple questions: Would you stay at the location again, and would you recommend it to someone else. So, in answering those two questions the answer is a definite YES!

Can't wait to plan our next visit.

Since you can't wait to plan another visit, please remember that you will get a Discount as return Guests. I do get lots of happy repeat Guests. See you soon!

Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a country getaway, this is it. Amazing beautiful place. Theresa is awesome. It is about 30 minutes from town, so make sure you are ok with that. It is WELL worth every penny though!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for being great guests and for your great review. It is quite welcoming, and once you are there, it gives you such a feeling of warmth. The drive is only about 17 miles in all from town, and takes only about 20 minutes once you get a little familiar with the drive. It is a nice change from being too close to the city, so private and peaceful. Come back soon!
