My husband and I stayed three nights in the Rhododendron cabin. It is right on the river and sitting outside listening to the flow of the water at night was extremely peaceful. We found the cabin clean and comfortable and it was a nice feature to have clean towels and trash picked up daily..in other cabins we have stayed at...

We very much appreciate the time you have taken to write this extensive review. Your review offers the correct impression of our properties and services. We are all about service, but consider your privacy a priority. Many home rentals on these sites, do not have 'staff on duty' as the rental is handled by the individual homeowner. Though much of...

So I will start this with saying it depends on the type of person you are we liked it but could see many people giving up on it right away. The Treehouse is where we stayed and it is very private and across the street from the river which made for great views and the atmosphere we loved. It told...

We are sorry that you found certain things about the property unacceptable. I must agree that these are not acceptable. Less than two hours before your scheduled arrival, we discovered that the house had been damaged, leaving it exposed to the outside elements. No doubt this is what contributed to the bug issue & floor dirt that you mention. At...

Thank you for your comment. We are just finishing up the remodeling on the kitchenettes, and guests are enjoying the new look with those too. Providing peaceful areas to lounge is of great importance to us. For this reason, it is essential that we minimize our presence, this however does not mean we limit our service. To the contrary. We...

My husband and I recently spent one night in the lodge. I rarely give poor reviews and do so now, because of several things. I should have paid more attention to some of the reviews, but we had personal reasons for staying there. The pluses were that the room was comfortable although a bit on the shabby side and the...

We are sorry you were disappointed in the 'basic' king room at our Lodge. I wish you had taken our recommendation for one of the newly remodeled king rooms. But we realized you were looking for something economical as you were there only overnight. Though only a $20/night difference, these rooms are quite different, and soon to be featured in...

We spent Valentines weekend at the house called the "Tree House". We booked last minute, we literally read the agreement on the way in the car. It was a really snowy cold weekend. Checking in was easy. Getting to our cabin in the dark in the snow was an adventure. To enter this cabin you must go up three sets...

Booked this property a month in advance. We had to send a check, money order or cashiers check for one day of our stay 10 days in advance. We have never had to do that any place we ever stayed. I thought to myself okay no big deal. I really like being able to do it through trip advisor. There...

Though the Swinging Vine did not meet all her expectations, you may find it interesting to know that Southern Living Magazine just 2 weeks earlier had been there for a photo shoot as it will be featured in an upcoming issue. Though opinions differ; they are subjective so as a property owner, all I can do is clarify items that...

My husband and I were looking for a long weekend of R&R. We had never been to the Elkins area but thought it looked like a place we could relax and hike with our two Boston Terriers. We were so surprised to find the Rhododendron "Rhodie" cabin available for the weekend. This cabin was spectacular, if you love rustic. Opening...
