My wife and I loved our stay! We stayed in the smallest of their cabins (Swinging Vine) and it was still a very spacious 2-bedroom log cabin. Nicely furnished and equipped, it was the perfect get-away in the woods. Other cabins are nearby, but they aren't readily visible. A woman came by every day to give us fresh towels, empty... More

They probably require prepay, because you would never stay a 2nd night if you hadn't prepaid. The walls were so thin that you heard everything said in the rooms next door. The road and road side parking are only feet away from the room. You hear every vehicle pass by. You hear every car door open/close. You hear every chirp... More

Though we are located in a very rural area, the fall is a very busy time of the year for us. We are not a 'franchise' hotel, where the doorways to the rooms open up onto a corridor. It is also a typical arrangement that 'franchise' hotels have their bathrooms near the entry wall. There is also a short narrow... More

We stayed in this lovely cabin for a week. Other family members had rented properties in the general area so it was a nice family gathering as well. The owners, Anne and Paul, live a mile or so down the road so were very friendly and available if needed. The cabin had everything we needed for our stay. Some of... More

Thank you for your comments. You have hit on some of the things that set us apart from others. We aren't your typical franchise hotel, and for that reason many consider us a 'destination'. About the cell reception. We have experienced some 'intermittent' issues with the reception. We have not determined if its from the dense umbrella of the treetops,... More

Can't say enough good things about Cheat River Lodge. We had the place to our selfs. Room was big and spacious. Bed was huge and comfortable.

We recently stayed at the Cheat River Lodge and enjoyed the laid back attitude and , picturesque scenery. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the screened in porch, jacuzzi, and the proximity to the National Forest entrance. Purchase dinner and eat at the picnic table overlookiing the river, but bring bug spray for dusk!

Thank you. We are happy that you enjoyed your visit. We are very different than the typical franchise hotels along a highway. We offer a room with a view, whereas your door opens to a nice view of the river rather than a corridor lined with doorways. Check out our Facebook page to see the newly updated 'kitchenettes'.

First, I would like to thank the owners for allowing pets, and what a nice surprise to find a pet bed in the room. We stayed at Cheat River Lodge for a weekend in July.

Very peaceful setting. Cabins are not set close together so it is very quiet. Cabin was very clean, kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Very close to Elkins, W.V. for groceries and etc. I highly recommend the train ride to the high falls of cheat from the Elkins depot.

We stayed in July and loved it. The rooms were great very comfortable. Set on the porch and listened to the river very relaxing. The people that expect the hilton need to stay home. This is country living could not of been better.Will definitely stay there again.
