The space
"Drennen Ridge Guest House is a one-story home with a large, open living space that includes a living room, dining area and fully equipped kitchen . The house sleeps 4 guests. The large master bedroom has a queen bed and ensuite bathroom w/tub. Two additional guests can be comfortably accommodated in the second bedroom, which also has a queen bed, and full bath w/ tub immediately next to it. The two bedrooms and baths are quite separate from each other, which accommodates two couples ideally. If you are a family who needs a separate bed, we have an inflatable mattress available; the couch is not a sleeping option. A pack and play is also available - let us know if you need it. Well-supervised children are welcome, but please understand that you take full responsibility for their safety, as there is a deck on the back of the house and the horses are pastured nearby.
The house is stocked with family games and jigsaw puzzles, as well as a Smart 48" flat panel TV. There is not cable, but the house has a large library of movies, as well as Roku and a blue-tooth VCR. The house has WiFi, which should support your own Netflix membership. You will find several collections of books: cookbooks, astronomy, WV history and nature, handbooks in nature topics, and a basket of novels. If you start a novel, you may take it with you. Please enjoy other books for reference during your stay. There is no phone at the house, but you are welcome to use ours, as well as your internet options. AT&T is the only cell phone service that works in town - there is no reception at the house - as we are in the "quiet zone" of the Greenbank deep space listening station. Most tech-savvy guests have been able to use their phones and the internet to meet their needs.
There is a free washer and dryer. Guests may enjoy interacting with our 3 draft horses - 2 Belgians and 1 Suffolk who live directly across the driveway; apples or carrots , are the best way to make friends with The Big Boys from outside their fence. There is extensive lawn and outdoor space around the house, with croquet, ladder ball and corn hole games available in season. Grocery store, gas, pharmacy, liquor store and several local restaurants are one mile away.
You will find light breakfast provisions for your first morning in the house - coffee, tea, cocoa, orange juice, bread or muffins, butter, fruit. The kitchen has some basic cooking staples if you choose to cook during your stay (flour, sugar, oil, spices, condiments, etc.), and is extensively equipped for most cooking/baking - pots, pans, baking pans, muffin tin, crock pot, waffle iron, mixer, casseroles, etc.

Summer guests are welcome to enjoy our perennial gardens and pond at the farmhouse during their stay. Artists and photographers have especially enjoyed visiting our grounds.

Guest access
The house will be your private residence during your stay. Our farmhouse is within view across the horse meadow, and we will arrange access when you book and supply you with your personalized lock code. There is an attached garage, where you may park motorcycles and store sports equipment. Bicycles, canoes and kayaks are available for rent in our nearby village, and ski equipment can be rented at Snowshoe. The porch has two steps and both bathrooms have tub showers, so the property is not wheelchair accessible.
We love animals, but cannot accommodate pets in the guest house, as others may have allergies. You will see Wilson, our friendly dog, greeting you when you come in, as well as a few other neighbor pups and kitties. Our check in and out times are flexible if the house is available.

Other things to note
We have put away the lovely bed linens in favor of white linens, including Marriott rippled coverlets, that can be laundered in hot water with bleach. All blankets, mattress covers, pillow covers and sofa throw pillow covers are laundered between guests. All possible surfaces, handles and knobs are sanitized. The house is aired out with all windows open and fans running during vigorous cleaning. We value your health and safety as our own.

Snowshoe Ski area will be selling only season tickets and advanced sale tickets in order to control numbers due to covid. There will be no walk-up window sales, so please purchase tickets before your arrival.

Pocahontas County is a year-round natural playground. Snowshoe Mt. Resort is 35-40 minutes north (depending on weather) - a short drive for a day of skiing, with privacy and quiet when you leave the slopes; most summer weekends offer events in the Snowshoe Village. In milder weather, you can fly fish, hike, kayak and bike to your heart's content - the Greenbrier River Trail offers 76 miles of 1% grade, and access is a mile away. This trail was voted number one running and walking trail in the Blue Ridge for 2015. Bird watching is a rewarding activity in this natural setting. At night, settle back on the deck and watch for shooting stars and meteors in our pristine skies, with little light pollution. Cass and Durbin Scenic Railroads, and Green Bank Observatory offer interesting visits and are close by, as well as a growing number of artisan shops. There are two local golf courses; Raven is a Gary Player designed course at Snowshoe that offers challenging play and magnificent topography. Locally, Pocahontas Country Club is a 9 hole course that is enjoyable, friendly, rarely crowded and is inexpensive to play.

There is plenty of room to stretch in the mountains - your body, your interests, your friendships and your activities. Local people are interesting, friendly and helpful, and there is plenty to keep all ages and interests busy. If you are looking to unwind and recharge, quiet and solitude abound.
There are diverse choices within an hour drive - hiking, biking, a deep space listening center to tour, The Greenbrier Resort Bunker Tour and/or a casual lunch in an opulent setting, The Homestead Resort to visit, galleries and shops in Lewisburg - the house has informative brochures and there is a tourism center in town.

Marlinton, West Virginia, United States

There are only 4 houses on Drennen Ridge, which means no traffic and a quiet setting. You may awaken to birdsong in summer or the cows lowing in our neighbor's field, and our horses will ask you for treats when they see you outside. It's country.

My husband and I have enjoyed a lifetime of travel, and have retired to our idea of serenity. We have lived in a dozen places because of careers, retired to live on our sailboat and now live on a farm in the mountains of WV. Our active and varied interests include our draft horses, perennial flower gardens, animal rescue and playing bridge.We love the outdoors, nature, reading and animals of all kinds. I would describe us as independent, low-maintenance guests, who enjoy a clean, uncluttered environment, and we enjoy providing the same for our guests (Website hidden by Airbnb)

During your stay
While we live within view of the guest house, we value privacy and will leave you to enjoy your vacation time. You are welcome to come by to chat, to talk about what to see in the area and to enjoy our perennial gardens in season. We enjoy living here, and can point you in the directions where your interests lie. If you are looking to just get away, we respect your privacy and space. We do greet our guests upon arrival, to answer any questions about the house, and to confirm that guests are the people represented in the reservation and that there are only 4 guests or fewer. We are very serious about this number, and will not allow additional guests to stay, unless it is a couple with their children, so do not show up with extra people in your car.
