5/5 Excellent

Excellent Property
Very peaceful secluded property. The pictures definitely do this property justice, gorgeous river access and solitude. Float or Kayak the river, fish, hang out in the hot tub on the large deck or just sit and look at the river and listen to the birds. Also close enough to town. Perfect!

Lovely place on the water!!
It was the much needed relaxing and quiet vacation we needed. Property manager, Roxy, and her team were extremely professional and shared lots of great information about the area. Our dog ****LOVED**** it. If you are looking for takeout, we highly recommend the white pizza and eggplant rollatini from Mama Mia’s in downtown Elkins. They are authentic!
