PLANNING YOUR TRIP
MOUNTAINAIRE has been carefully considered and created to be place where friends and family can gather to be together, slow down and reconnect, from dining al fresco to enjoying a drink around the fire. It is also a place offering so many opportunities to immerse yourself in the wilds of West Virginia and enjoy the great outdoors. Being prepared is the best way to ensure that you can do so safely and comfortably. The cabin is fully stocked with necessities like toilet paper, linens and soaps (see list below) and also provides luxurious details such as cozy blankets, a great library, and lavender bath salts. When planning your trip, consider the time of year, and plan accordingly. Adventure and beauty are waiting for you every day of the year!
Please take a moment to review our cabin rules
WHAT TO PACK
In addition to the normal items like clothes and toiletries, here is a list of some items you may not think of:
Food and drinks, there are local grocery stores, however, selection is very limited
Bathing suit: in the winter months, enjoy the hot tub. Late April - Late September the plunge spa is open, and the river is ready!
River shoes: the river is very rocky and shoes are recommended
Insect repellant and sunblock
Fishing poles, tubes for the river
Bring your own Netflix, Prime video, etc login's as you may need this if you wish to stream online content.
A comfy robe, especially in the winter, making it easier to shower before using the hot tub
Charging adapters for your personal devices
Bottled water for drinking: Our cabin uses well water, and has a tendency to have a high iron content. We do have an iron filter in place, which takes care of it for the most part, but it does sometimes look a little discolored after heavy rain. The water from the fridge is additionally filtered and safe to drink, but it sometimes has a slight metallic taste.
MOUNTAINAIRE is a fully stocked Cabin. We have made every effort to provide all the basics, including:
Linens, pillows & blankets
Bath towels & pool towels
Fully equipped kitchen
Whole cabin audio system w/bluetooth connection
Projector and 140" projection screen for content streaming
Shampoo, conditioner, body wash & hand soap
Drip coffee maker, coffee filters provided
Nespresso machine (fits small pods)
Salt & pepper
Dish soap, dishwasher soap
Washer/Dryer and laundry detergent
Board games, darts and pool table
Weber propane grill, grill tools provided
We are well stocked with firewood for burning in the 2 cabin fireplaces, but for the fire pit down at the river, we ask that you do not burn the seasoned firewood, but rather scour our 5 wooded acres for fallen branches.
WHAT'S NOT INCLUDED
MOUNTAINAIRE does not provide any food items
Cling wrap, foil, storage bags
Coffee, Nespresso pods (small pods)
The fridge does make ice, but we strongly recommend bringing extra ice
If you do not see something specific mentioned, please ask, do not assume it is provided.
Please keep in mind that we are in rural West Virginia, so local grocery stores will not have the selections you may be accustomed to, so please plan ahead. The nearest quick stop is about 15 minutes from the cabin, a place where you can pick up some basics, like ice, water, soda, beer and a very small selection of basic groceries. The nearest full grocery store is about 45 minutes away.
ON-SITE SPA SERVICES
NEW FOR 2022, we are please to introduce ON-SITE spa services. Get a massage on the deck, on the porch, or inside the cabin if weather is a factor. She offers Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point and stretching, and can also offer Hot Stone and cupping as well as a few other modalities depending on which therapists are available. Pricing starts at $120 per hr and $175 for 90 min, and varies based on specific services. She can also accommodate groups with advanced booking.

ITEMS NOT ALLOWED ON THE PROPERTY
NO AMPLIFIED AUDIO DEVICES, PORTABLE SPEAKERS, NOISE MAKERS or PA SYSTEMS
NO MOTORIZED RECREATIONAL VEHICLES
NO FIRE ARMS or FIREWORKS of any kind
NO GLITTER, CONFETTI OR ROSE PETALS (real of fake)
SNOW / ICE IN THE WINTER MONTHS
Please be advised that we are located in a fairly remote area, and even the State roads are not always plowed and salted immediately. We strongly recommend 4WD vehicles when inclement weather is likely. The last mile is a well maintained gravel road, and during regular weather conditions, non-4WD vehicles have no issues with access, however, when there is ice or snow, access can be challenging. We do have a "snow plowing" service that plows when we get more than 4" of snow.
