Our cabin is remotely located near Rich Mountain Battlefield in Randolph County, West Virginia. If you want privacy and seclusion, this is the place. It’s ideal for anyone wanting a quiet break from the daily grind in life. Rural living brings peace & tranquility along with things you might not be used to - singing birds early in the morning, fire flies & buggy creatures that are normal in the outdoors, plus a total lack of street lights. You're in the country - enjoy it!

The space
The upper (main) level of our cabin hosts an open floor plan (this means no defined bedrooms). Queen size bed and sleeper sofa are on this level, along with the bathroom, living area and basic kitchen. All linens (bed sheets and towels) are provided. We have an extra set if you choose to change your own during stays of 1 week or more.

A small kitchen is adequately stocked with dishes, cooking utensils, pots and pans, etc. We have a full sized propane stove & refrigerator, small microwave, coffee pot and toaster.

Rich Mountain Retreat is a small cabin on approximately six acres. There are no other cabins or homes on the property or within view so its secluded and private, yet located within easy access to historic towns like Elkins and Beverly, West Virginia.

Enjoy watching deer and wild turkey as you relax on the 10 foot porch that surrounds the cabin. Nearby hiking and walking trails provide a look into Battlefield history during Civil War times. You can spend the day walking thru former camp sites, such as Camp Garrett. Re-enactments of the Battle of Rich Mountain occur each summer in July as part of the Beverly Days Celebrations.

We offer a small grill (bring your favorite charcoal) along with an outdoor fire pit (wood is provided). We also ask that you refrain from using the fire pit on windy days.

Where you’ll be

Coalton, West Virginia, United States

Rich Mountain Retreat is located on six privately owned acres near the Rich Mountain Battlefield, with 98 attached acres on lease for exploring. The cabin sits on a maintained 1 acre lot with the surrounding area used for hay production farmland. There are no other cabins or homes onsite or within view of the property and only 2 homes on the mountain itself since other property is either privately owned or falls within the boundaries of the Rich Mountain Battlefield Association.

A patch of pine trees lies between our gravel driveway and the access road (also gravel) which helps to buffer light traffic noise from the locals who tend to use this road as a pass through from Beverly going towards Buckhannon. Our experience is weekday 'work' hours are the most noticed for vehicle traffic, along with weekend passersby to include ATV's. Sorry, we do NOT allow ATV or UTV use on our property.

Our cabin is not so remote that you cannot access some local attractions. Elkins & Beverly are towns located within 5-10 miles and can offer a variety of services, food and other entertainment.

Shepherding a flock of Jacob sheep in north central West Virginia adds an interesting flair to the farming lifestyle. We live quietly here and its almost like being on vacation 24/7/365. Our hosting style is very hands-off and low maintenance. We enjoy our privacy and hope our guests do as well. Sharing our cabin (and possible retirement home) and encouraging others to do some periodic detox from the hectic pace of life is how we roll. One should always take time to smell the roses!

During your stay

We schedule and meet each of our guests in person at an agreed check-in time to show the grounds, answer questions and welcome you to our cabin. We appreciate your being on time to a mutually agreeable check-in schedule. Daily check-in time is 3pm -7pm, unless otherwise arranged in advance. Please respect our time and arrive on time. Check-out is 11:00AM on your date of departure.

We are available 24/7 but do not reside directly on this property. Our guest interaction is limited to check-in times but we can always be reached by phone, chat or text.

If you are a high maintenance guest and require lots of personal attention, our cabin may not be the best choice for your vacation needs. But, if you want privacy, along with peace and quiet, then this is the place for you!

Part of the attraction of this retreat cabin is the quiet seclusion away from constant contact with others (aside from those you choose to bring on your vacation). This is not a camp ground but a private cabin. There are no other homes on the property.
