Guest AccessFind us on Vacation Rental By Owner to make your Holiday and SKI SEASON reservations today. 10% on all reservations made before December 15th. Interaction with GuestsI love to meet all of my guests, however, I travel a lot for work and family so a friend/host may be there to greet you when I cannot. The NeighborhoodOur home is located in a safe residential neighborhood adjacent to Beckley's downtown historic district and the new southern campus of West Virginia University. The region is world-renowned for outdoor adventure, and many state and national parks, and adventure destinations, are within a drive of 30 minutes of our doorstep.
Many specialty and national chain restaurants cluster around Beckley, though there are a few favorites we recommend. Guests in search of delivery might enjoy China Wok or Roma Pizza, two restaurants located less than a mile. If you're looking for a singular dining experience within a five- to ten-minute drive, we recommend Dobra Zupas or the food court at the Tamarack arts center, which specializes in West Virginia cuisine. A drive of 30 minutes north of us, we recommend two award-winning eateries at Fayetteville -- Pies & Pints and Secret Sandwich Society. (Fayetteville is home to the New River Gorge Bridge, and a visit to the bridge overlook is a must for any visitor there.)
The largest concentration of retail shops in southern West Virginia is a drive of less than five minutes north of us at the junction of U.S. 19 and W.Va. 16. Most large regional stores, such as Kroger, Walmart, and Kohl's, may be found there. The Crossroads Mall is located another five miles farther north along U.S. 19. Many guests who are searching for souvenirs recommend the Appalachian arts center, Tamarack, located on I-77 off Harper Road. It is a 10-minute drive west of us.
-- Parks & Recreation
State and national parklands surround Beckley to the north, east, and south. A drive of less than half an hour in all directions offer access to any of dozens of world-renowned hiking or biking trails, or whitewater rafting and kayaking. We recommend searching for any of the following terms for useful information for parks and recreation: Little Beaver State Park, New River Gorge National River, ACE Adventure Resort, Adventures on the Gorge, Winterplace Ski Resort, and Burning Rock All-Terrain Vehicle Park. Looking for a quick woodland walk instead of an adventure? Many guests enjoy walking the one-mile Ship Rock Trail, located adjacent to the YMCA Youth Sports Complex, a drive of about five minutes east of our property. Other Things to NoteWe do not provide breakfast items for parties that book the cottage exclusively.
