In the heart of West Virginia lies a beautiful cottage on the banks of the Buckhannon River. Far enough out to get away from it all but with all of the comforts of home. Spend your days fishing for trout and playing in the river and your nights around the campfire. Fall colors are stunning to see through the six foot picture windows. Kid friendly paradise or adult oasis you decide. Sleeps up to ten. King size bed in master, queen in second bedroom, three singles and a double in third bedroom & futon in loft.

About Lannette Karnes
We are a family of six who love to travel. Whether staying at our family paradise, Crossings Cottage or touring Ireland we love taking journeys and spending time together.
Lannette Karnes purchased this House in 2004
Why Lannette Karnes chose Tallmansville
We built this house on family ground. Our grandparents grew up in this little piece of heaven. The cottage has every convenience and comfort. It is fully stocked for your pleasure. Isn't it time to make some memories for your family on the river?
What makes this House unique
At a large bend in the Buckhannon River, paradise awaits you. Enjoy morning walks up the railroad tracks, afternoons swimming in the river and evenings around the campfire. You can enjoy the rustic surroundings while having a luxurious home with satellite TV, WiFi and Jacuzzi tub when you are tired of 'roughing' it.

Just the type of home and experience you look for. The house is well kept and stocked. My family and I enjoyed the beauty and serenity surrounding us. I can not imagine anyone having a complaint or not having a relaxing time.
We have rented homes for years. This one was outstanding.
Very nice home, peaceful riverside
We had a great family experience here, young children included. The home is a bit off the beaten track, but that worked perfectly for us. Well furnished with grill, plenty of outdoor/river toys (canoe, kayak, tubes, etc). However the washer/dryer was not working, which we did not find out until we arrived. It would have been helpful to know that ahead of time. Butch and Connie checked in on us a couple times and were so friendly and helpful. Butch was willing to deliver firewood for a small cost. Thanks!
We now have a brand new washer and dryer. I am sorry that they did not arrive before your stay. We had them replaced as soon as was possible. Everything should be in good working order the next time you come!
A perfect family getaway
We had a wonderful week! We were greeted by the neighbors who made sure we had settled in and had everything we needed. The house was clean and welcoming and wonderfully stocked with all the basics (hand soaps, cleaning products, and even bandaids), the kitchen had everything we needed (including a Keurig, which was great), the towel supply was large and the bedding was comfortable. The house has great river gear and we really appreciated all of the extra toys and games for the kids to play with. The setting is so peaceful and we all were able to really relax and enjoy ourselves. We canoed, kayaked, swam, explored the train tracks, read, and had a few classic Disney movie nights from the movie collection. We drove into Buckhannon for dinner almost every night and were surprised at how many great restaurants we found (notables: Miss Piggy, Sweet-a-licious, 88, and C.J. Maggie). The first day the neighbor's dogs did bark a bit (as I read in other reviews) but they got used to us and were fine by the second day. We really loved it here - awesome place to stay.
Great home. Great vacation.
We had a great time. The house was perfect. We fished, canoed, hiked, and grilled all week. Our kids had an amazing time. My nine year old woke me up at 6:00 to go fishing. I almost cried with joy. Very little Cell service which was great. We truly got to relax and get a much needed vacation. Saw lots of deer. Highly recommend getting supplies before going to house because the closest store is at least a twenty minute drive. Also recommend using the directions provided because one of our party got lost using the GPS. Butch and Connie were very nice and welcoming. They turned us on to the sugar shack bakery where we loaded up on goods to bring home to our friends. The only complaint we had was needing another garbage can. A party of ten for week fills up the can fast . Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay. Will be telling everyone what a great place it was.
Nice house nice location. Fish right in front of the house.
1 floor mat on each bathroom for towels. Very close neighbor with 4 dogs barking each morning for long periods of time at 7 am. Very stained worn living room leather furniture. Nice kitchen, porches on the river.
I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at my vacation home. The linen closet is fully stocked with bath towels, hand towels, wash cloths, and even beach towels. I wish you would have mentioned any issues to either myself or our caretaker so we could have resolved them while you were there.
West Virginia Wildlife Center at French Creek is a short drive and the Swiss Village of Helvetia is about 30 minutes away and The Hutte Restaurant is world famous for its Sunday brunch. Audra State Park is a short drive as well.
