The River Cabin is a rustic log home, completely private and dating from the 1930s. The property includes hundreds of yards of frontage on the Greenbrier River as well as 140+ acres of woods, wildlife and natural beauty. The cabin itself has been updat]ed for a bath and kitchen. The big screened porch overlooking the Greenbrier River is beautiful any time of the year. Once you check in, you'll have the place all to yourself until it's time to leave.

El espacio
The cabin is a fully furnished year round home, rustic but comfortable. Take note of where the furniture is, then move whatever you want to make your stay more comfortable. You can put things back the way they were when it's time to leave.

Don't lose any time before acquainting yourself with the beautiful Greenbrier River. Drop your suitcases on the bed, unpack your groceries and step out onto the big screened porch overlooking the river. There's no better white sound than "live" water and there's no better place for a nap than a rocking chair on our porch. In a matter of moments, you will feel at home.

The cabin has two double beds - one in the bedroom and a second one in a corner of the living room. There is also a twin sized hotel bed that can be unfolded and made up as needed. Linens and pillows are provided for all three beds, and we'll put out towels for up to five people. If you have extra folks coming with you, we provide two adult-sized cots that make a comfortable bed but you'll need to bring your own linens or sleeping bags for those. There's room on the floor for an air mattress (ditto on the linens). The bathroom has a nice sized shower with plenty of racks for hanging towels. The lower shelf has a hair dryer, steam iron and miniature ironing board that can be used atop the kitchen table.

The kitchen has a stove, microwave and refrigerator. Cupboards contain basic dishes, utensils, pots and pans, serving dishes of all kinds, cookie sheets and baking pans. All of the pottery, china, stoneware and pyrex dishes are oven and microwave safe. There's a Black & Decker electric coffee maker as well as a Melitta cone and filters for those who like pour-through coffee.

The fridge and cabinets have basic condiments and some food. Unless it's marked "Do Not Use" you may help yourself to whatever's there. If you do finish off the last of something basic like butter, coffee, sugar, mayo, etc., it would be thoughtful to buy some more to replace it before you leave.

Of course, if you don't want to cook, you can venture out and find some wonderful food. Because of the proximity to the Greenbrier Resort, our part of West Virginia has a great many restaurants with creative chefs who finished their training at the Greenbrier.

The River Cabin notebook on a table in the living room has suggestions for nearby activities. Even better, let us know ahead of time what your interests are and we'll try to point you in the right direction. You don't need to leave our property if you like hunting, hiking or fishing. Birdwatchers are treated to sightings of great blue herons, pileated woodpeckers and occasional bald eagles in the daytime. Eastern phoebes are charming, as well as bank swallows that hang out near the river. After dark we are used to hearing the night call of several species of owls. We keep binoculars and a bird identification book on the sideboard in the kitchen.

Even though the property affords privacy, it is only 5 miles from a regional hospital. The old railroading town of Hinton is just 7 miles from the cabin. There is a Kroger grocery store, hardware store, and a Rite-Aid drug store that includes a liquor store. For almost anything else you might need, a Dollar General store is the place to go for everything from chain saws to lingerie. Board games, batteries, appliances and Christmas ornaments - if they don't have it, you don't need it.

We keep an assortment of cards and board games under one of the living room tables. Under the other table is a toy bin with books, dolls, dinosaurs and more. If your child falls in love with a book or toy you may take it home with you as our gift.

And, of course, there's the river. The Greenbrier is suitable for tubing or kayaking. You can bring your own raft, canoe or kayak, or you can rent one in town. Whether you're headed out for an afternoon of skipping rocks or a few hours of photography, we've cleared two paths for ready access down to the river and back. We have over 200 yards of river frontage. As our guest, you may fish from the banks but if you want to cast a line from a boat or canoe, or if you want to drive down to the public access spots and try your luck in the New River, you'll need a West Virginia fishing license. Angler's shops in Hinton can sell you whatever license you might need. Naturally, they'll also have a selection of tackle they'd like for you to have a look at while you're there. Whether you make a purchase or not, you'll find them friendly and willing to oblige with tips and recommendations.

We greatly enjoy walking in the woods "up the holler." It's an easy to moderate hike along an old logging road that goes almost to the top of the mountain. The hills on either side are steep and present more of a challenge should you choose to strike out away from the logging road. We keep a couple of walking sticks stacked in the corner beside the back door in the kitchen. Note: Be sure to bring them back with you!! It's easy to get caught up enjoying the greenery but if you set one of the walking sticks down to take a photograph, be sure to take note of where you laid it so you can bring it back with you.

Servicios y zonas comunes
There is a combo keybox on the front door so you can let yourself in, and there is a cable that holds the gate closed when no one is expected. We will e-mail the access code to you the day before you are due to arrive.

Otros aspectos destacables
If you're staying 5 nights or longer you will have access to the washer & dryer. They are in the basement. Go down the porch steps that are closest to the kitchen door, turn left and then left again to enter the basement. The door is just below the screened porch.

NOTE: We keep the basement locked. Let us know if you think you'll need to do laundry and we will tell you where we store the key.

This is a vintage log home, tucked in between small creeks and ravines and surrounded by dogwoods, maple, oak and hemlock trees. The property is very private and includes 140 acres with hundreds of yards of frontage on the beautiful Greenbrier River. There are good roads all the way to our drive.

The cabin is our home away from home. When we're expecting guests, we clear out and let you have the place all to yourselves. The white notebook in the living room has a map of the River Cabin property so you'll know the dimensions of our acreage. Most of the guest comments include some mention of the 9' x 30' screened porch. Some folks never leave it long enough to go exploring on the rest of our property! With more than 140 acres, however, you can take some nice walks along on the old logging road that follows the creek. Or you can strike out through the woods and catalog the wildflowers and native plants. There's a guide book in the living room that you can carry with you. We've come across Jack-in-the-pulpit, maidenhair fern, rhododendron, wild ginger, miterwort, scads of ferns, decorative lichens and more. Please note that guests are not permitted to pick, harvest, cut or dig anything on the property. The woods are charming, and we want to leave them just the way they are.

Walking sticks are stacked beside the door that leads out onto the screened porch from the kitchen. Note: Be sure to bring them back with you!! It's easy to get caught up enjoying the greenery but if you lay the walking stick down to take a photo, remember to bring it back with you.

The Greenbrier is a "natural" river. It has never been dammed, and the banks are home to beavers, river otters and a huge assortment of birds. Regular sightings include bald eagle, great blue heron, pileated woodpecker, Eastern phoebes and many more. Deer can be seen daily. We keep binoculars and a couple of bird identification books on hand for your use.

In front of the cabin, the river is 103 yards across and it is an excellent stream for smallmouth bass and other game fish. You may keep what you land or you can catch & release, whichever you prefer. Local fishing outfitters have the best information on what's biting and what kind of tackle to use. You can count on their being very helpful.

I am a lover of Nature, a couch-potato bird watcher, a fiber artist, professional pickle maker (yes, there are such people). I grew up in the Appalachian foothills and have an abiding love of the mountains in this part of the country. Pleasures include cooking contests, museum tours, garden shops and reading just about anything. Reading on a porch is even better.
