OVERVIEW The Tygart River Guest House features a picturesque riverside setting which overlooks cascading whitewater rapids as far as the eye can see. Walk down the grassy bank to the river rocks below and bask in the glow of the setting sun. Open a window during the evening hours to usher in soothing sounds of rushing water, or take in the scent of a fresh country rain from your porch swing with a good book in hand. Ideal choice for: • Family Vacations with kids of all ages • Outdoor Sports • Nature Lovers • Reunions • Girlfriend Getaways • Weekend Escapes • Retreats • Outdoor Sports Enthusiasts Whether you're coming for a family reunion, exploring nature, kayaking, going to festivals, or simply in love with the great outdoors - you’ll be in the perfect place.

Interaction with GuestsDepending on your stay, I am usually available to talk with you face to face or by phone. The NeighborhoodWe originally moved to West Virginia for the whitewater 25 years ago - and we're still here. There's something wonderfully magnetizing about the close-knit community of Arden and the Tygart River. Make no mistake, our front porch is neither a place of anonymity, nor of complete privacy but rather a place to welcome each other, to share the view and recall a time when casually waving to a stranger was an act of hospitality both given and received. Yet, you have the best of both worlds. The back deck is much more of a quiet sanctuary mostly hidden from direct view. So, if you're looking for complete seclusion, this is not the place for you. But if you're up for a local experience filled with beautiful scenery and backyard campfires or down by the river...this spot can't be beat! Getting AroundPhilippi is the nearest town just 6 miles away where you can find gas, groceries, restaurants, hospital, pharmacy, shopping and more. Bridgeport offers a wider selection of all the above with airport service, about 40 min away. Other Things to NoteParking is available in the driveway which can accommodate 3-4 cars depending on size. There is also parking across the road for 2 more vehicles.This is a rural neighborhood and friendly dogs roam around the yards here and there. They love a good campfire as much as we do! If it ever becomes and issue, please let us know and we'll do our best to get in touch with their owners.
