A cabin weekend that's all about the details

Stephen and Mary have done a lot to make sure every detail is accounted for in many expected and unexpected ways. There's of course everything you need to know to make the visit enjoyable and for things to work as expected but many of the best parts are just making the cabin feel cozy and detailed so even a weekend retreat feels like a well earned vacation. The location is perfect for a rural retreat and the valley is a sight in the morning as the sun comes over the mountain range. The abundant seating (including the porch day beds) easily convince you to spend it around the fire or huddled in the blankets outside with a warm coffee (at least if you go during a fall cold snap like we did). Even with many people between the porch, deck, kitchen, living area and basement you never feel contained with many places to relax or converse. It definitely feels like a place worth trying in every season for the different activities around and certainly makes for a memorable stay.

Our favorite CABIN by far!

We have stayed at a quite a few cabins in our travels and this is by far our favorite. The space is beautiful, the area is perfect, and we loved the game room and outdoors! We may need to get there in the summer time and we hardly ever revisit the same places, but this home is worth a second visit. It was the kitchen stocked with every tool we needed for us to make our Thanksgiving family dinner. We enjoyed the long weekend and highly recommend this lovely cabin! Thank you for sharing your place with us!

Heaven in the mountains

We rented this cabin for our annual retreat for my company and another and our spouses and it was the most fabulous setting! The house was lovely, with tons of space for gathering both inside and outside. We enjoyed every single second of our trip. Every detail in the house has been lovingly planned and you can tell. From the bathrooms to the bedrooms to the outdoor areas - everything was perfect. We look forward to renting it again and again!

This place will b low you away!

This cabin is beautiful. Inside and out, this place will blow you away. The layout and design is as comfortable as much as it is aesthetically pleasing. The pictures of this cabin are awesome but they do not do it justice. Stephen and Mary were great hosts also. They provided us with everything we needed. Gave us a check in list before we got there and sent a reminder email for checking out before we left. I would give this place more than five stars if I could.

Amazing!

We hosted our children and grandchildren this past and our week at mountainaire was absolutely amazing! The property and home are beautiful and well maintained. We spent the days catching wild butterflies, hiked ice mountain (more than once), relaxed in the plunge pool, played games and sat down for amazing home cooked meals each evening. Our nights were complete by sitting aside one of the many area fireplaces/pits, roasted s'mores and shared stories. We somehow struck up a conversation with the Bail family from North River Mills and they invited us to their farm where our granddaughters were able to feed the cows. One day was spent at Cacapon State Park where we hiked some more and enjoyed the breathtaking views. The private gated community was full of nooks and crannies to explore and the river clean and refreshing. As a grad student, I needed internet capabilities to complete some course work while away and the wifi was perfect. One of our sons in college was also completing some work and had enough quiet to study. Afternoons were spent napping on the amazing wrap around porch, when we were not chasing after our toddler grandaughter who could have run around that all day! Families looking for some down time to disconnect and reconnect will find this home perfect. The owners were wonderful, super easy and accommodating. The kitchen and baths are supplied with everything needed and the house is pretty much automated to make accessibility simple. They also provide plenty of indoor and outdoor games. Thank you Stephen and Mary for creating this amazing corner in the world!

The hosts go above and beyond

The house and location are perfect for a getaway for a large group of people. The outdoor area in particular was beautiful, and we had a great time hanging out in the pool. The hosts checked in regularly to make sure that everything was going well. We also appreciated that the kitchen was well-stocked and there were plenty of towels, pillows, etc...

Old-school flavor and modern amenities!

We hired this cabin for a work retreat with 9 people. It was very comfortable for everyone and has several luxurious touches. The kitchen is a dream with plenty of space to work. It is a wonderful mix of old-school flavor and modern amenities. I can't wait to go back. :D

2.8 mile hike right behind the cabin

We had a party of 12 people and everyone had a blast. It rained our entire first day, but the enclosed wrap around porch made it so we weren't stuck inside all day. The pool was one of our favorite parts, along with the sound system that is consistent throughout the entire house. There's no service for phones, but the wifi was strong enough for our entire party. There also was a great 2.8 mile hike right behind the cabin that led to some amazing views. Definitely want to come back!

Beautiful and luxurious property that you can not imagine the cabin in the wood could ever offer.

Amazing, luxurious and very detailed design. Beside the beautiful design, it is very functional. The actual property is as beautiful as it is shown on the website. We love everything about it such as interior, screened porch, dipping pool, outdoor lounging, pool table, tree house, fire pit and access to the river. If you love photography, especially social media photography, you will love the interior and exterior lighting. Every single corner of the property is a chic and cool photo spot. In fact, tons of my friends been asking about this property since I uploaded photos on my Facebook!! All in all, beside it’s luxurious design and beautiful location, it is only two hours drive from DC!! Because all of those above, I will definitely return.
