5/5 Excellent

Perfect Getaway
It’s our tradition to camp every year and this year with a toddler we wanted to have an upgrade from tent camping. This was way more than an upgrade! It had a fire pit, grill, utensils, and the coziest cottage feel! Very cute! Our toddler loved walking around in circles all over the cabin- and we had three dogs and 4 adults and there was plenty of room. Very close (5-10 min) to scenic views (not very stroller friendly) but the views are so accessible that you don’t even need one. Definitely recommend!

5/5 Excellent

Awesome place to stay in WV

4/5 Good

Terrapin Cottage Vacation
Overall the property was nice. It would have been nice to have either cable or satalite TV but we made do. Had to find the TV that was in the master bedroom closet. A warning to anyone renting this listing is that the GPS will take you down a street that has a ditch across it. I messed up the bottom front of my vehicle because I wasn't aware it was there. The other thing I would mention for Kevin is to add the requirements under pets welcome to inform people before they rent that dogs are not allowed in the bedrooms or on the furniture. We managed to keep ours off but it was a hassle.
