We 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 scenery.

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.

The 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. 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. Limited cell phone service is available five miles south-east of us, for AT&T subscribers only. Free WiFi is provided.
