Private, secluded and peaceful! Wildwood is a 5 acre private retreat. Relax while staying in this 1920's-built home with a modern kitchen. We invite you to stroll along the edge of the pond, gaze at the stars and warm up next to the campfire. Our favorite thing -the sound: It is so quiet here! Close to Cass Scenic Railroad, Green Bank Observatory and Snowshoe Mountain Resort.

The space
This quiet and private 5 acre property includes a spring-fed pond, several outbuildings and a lot of nature to view - deer are plentiful. The four bedroom house has three bedrooms and two full bathrooms upstairs. The fourth bedroom is on the main-level, along with a living room, dining room, modern kitchen, and a half-bath. Wildwood also features a full-length front porch, a 10' x 18' back deck and an open breezeway that connects the main house with a separate apartment (currently not in use).

Guest access
Guests can access all of the property, with the exception of the barn and an apartment (currently not in use).

Other things to note
There is no cellphone service at the house but we do have internet service with WiFi and a landline with free long distance (within the U.S. and Canada).

Note - Internet speeds are adequate but not what most people are used to. We would LOVE to offer faster internet but it is not offered in our area. We hope this changes soon!

Warm weather guests: There is air conditioning in the downstairs, but none upstairs. We do have fans available and find that open windows and fans do pretty well most of the time.

Winter weather guests: Wildwood is an old house and old houses can be cold in the winter. We have lots of heaters and warm blankets to stay cozy, but sweaters and warm pants are advised for cold weather.

Location

Marlinton, West Virginia, United States

Pocahontas County is a beautiful place and Wildwood is right in the middle of it! You can be in "Town" (Marlinton) in less than 15 minutes. Marlinton has a vibrant coffee shop (The Dirt Bean, which has great character and AMAZING fish tacos!), a cool arts collective (Pocahontas County Artisan's Co-op) and a great little family-friendly music/theater venue (The Pocahontas County Opera House). To the north of us (a 30 minute or so drive) is the Cass Scenic Railroad and Green Bank which is home to the Green Bank Observatory and the center of the Radio Quiet Zone. Further up the road is Snowshoe Ski Resort, which is a 45 minute drive. If you like hiking and being outdoors (or just taking a beautiful country ride) the Greenbrier River Trail, Seneca State Forest, Watoga State Forest and Monongahela, Washington and Jefferson National Forests are close by. This is a great location!

The most important thing to me is family. With three children and a husband, my hands are full. We love our home in the WV mountains because it gives us a chance to unplug and reconnect with each other. Sharing our home with others is both rewarding but also allows us to keep this sanctuary in the country! My husband (who co-hosts with me) and I like outdoorsy things like hiking and gardening but also inside things like museums and music shows. We like to travel but don’t get to do enough of it. We also like meeting new people and are interested in folks with different life experiences than our own. In my work life, I teach adult education - which I sort of fell into but really love because I’m fascinated by everything and get to teach a little bit of it all!
