invite you to visit us at Appalachian Cabins. We'll treat you
like family and promise you will not be disappointed with our facilities
or the majesty of our surrounding Wild, Wonderful West Virginia
Behind our cabins you have access to the North Fork of the South
Branch of the Potomac River, an area that offers some of the best
fishing and canoeing found anywhere. The nearby woodlands are abundant
with small game, deer and bear.
Appalachian Cabins combine the rustic charm of yesteryear with the
comfort of modern day conveniences. The cabins were constructed
in the same manner as the early settlers of this area used to build
their homes more than a century ago. All the timber, which came
from Spruce Mountain, was milled in nearby Hardy County, and then
hand hewn and assembled on-site.
carved porch posts and gingerbread trim were rescued from a century-old
Hardy County mansion that was falling into ruin. Many of the floors
in the cabins came from an old log house in Hardy County. The artistry
of the native stone chimneys is impressive. All the materials in
our cabins utilize local natural hardwoods.
Each cabin has a wood burning fireplace. Firewood is available on-site free of charge. However, if you plan to use your fireplace you might consider bringing a starter log.
Seneca Rocks is just three miles away, providing challenging climbs
for beginner to expert. Yokum's Stables, also nearby, offers horseback
rides to the top of the Seneca Rocks. For the history buff the Treasure
Mountain Festival that takes place in Franklin the third weekend
of September has everything from Civil War battle reenactments to
tours of local historic buildings, quilt displays, local artisans'
crafts and traditional country food. Canaan Valley, Blackwater Falls
and Dolly Sods are within an hour's scenic drive from the Cabins.
There is no cell phone service in our area and there are no phones in the cabins. However, wi-fi is available for a small fee. This fee must be paid for via credit or debit card and is not collected by us. Limited cell phone service is available five miles south-east of us, for AT&T subscribers only.
