What Our Customers are Saying

  • We thought we were just going to be staying in the cabin and relaxing. We didn’t know there were so many things to do!

  • Our second visit and even better than the first. This time, we were able to go zip lining, whitewater rafting and spend a day at the lake at ACE.

  • We loved Summersville Lake and the marina. We highly recommend kayaking the lake and exploring Fayetteville.

  • Amazing hiking trails, fabulous scenery. WV is an outdoor paradise.

  • No way can you be bored here! So many fun things to do. We went horseback riding, rock climbing and hiking in the Gorge. We will be back for more!
