The Ultimate Rustic Cabin Experience!

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking for an iconic deep-woods cabin experience, look no further than River’s Edge. Tiffany (the VRBO host) has done an admirable job of making sure that your every need is attended too—from supplying guests with firewood to ensuring a nicely stocked kitchen. It’s all the small details that make the difference, and there’s really not a lot you need to bring with you other than food and the right attitude. That being said, the river location is perfect and pretty secluded – and this warm and rustic cabin has all the features you’d ever want, including an amazing hot tub, inside fireplaces, a hammock and screened porch, outside picnic areas, a beautiful fire pit area, and even extremely good Wi-Fi. If you don’t have a good time at River’s Edge, you can’t blame it on the place or location. We had a bit of cooler weather, so we spent a lot of time in the new-looking hot tub, which was beyond relaxing. Hearing the trains occasionally roll by made the experience even more special.

Just a warning for all you Verizon cellular users – but Elkins is 100% no coverage, so don’t expect to get a signal anywhere in town – and I mean anywhere! You’ll have to use cabin Wi-Fi and FaceTime (or email) if you want to chat with friends and family back home. Although we did eat in a few times, I highly recommend “Smoke on the Water” for good BBQ. If you’re looking for a special occasion dinner, The Forks Inn has absolutely wonderful views and equally amazing food to back those up. The crab cakes are out of this world!

Great place to stay! Clean, comfortable, with everything me and my family needed for a weekend away.

  • 5 of 5

River's Edge was perfect for us. We were taking a weekend to swim/tube and hike around the area. Hit Audra State Park on the way in. Spent Saturday around Seneca Rock and Dolly Sods. Both nights were quiet and peaceful at the cabin. Everything you need, in a beautiful setting.

Spent a weekend at the cabin. It was clean and cozy and had a great location right on Shaver's Fork. Would definitely recommend.

Family Fishing Trip

  • 5 of 5

Riverfront Log Cabin is a great place to visit and has everything needed for a long weekend. I was there with my dad (seventies), my son (teen) and his friend. Historic feel with modern convenience. Everyone enjoyed themselves. The porch over the river was a big hit to sit and relax. We ate outside by the campfire most nights, but the kitchen is equipped with everything needed. Tiffany was very helpful and responsive throughout.

We spent most of our time fishing, and found that the Stuart Recreation Area (five minutes away in the national forest) was a great choice. Easy access and it is stocked with big trout through Memorial Weekend. Catch and release requirement was fine for us, and if you want a convenient place to fish with a good chance of success - I recommend it.

We also visited the fish hatchery about ten minutes away. It was another worthwhile excursion, but be sure to check the hours because it is only open for limited periods.

Overall, a great vacation spot and we'd go back again without hesitation.
