The property fronts the shore of the river, providing private access to the water. It is also conveniently located adjacent to the Monongahela National Forest and its Stuart Recreational Area. The Landing features both a full length front patio and a back deck overlooking the water, and a yard perfect for fun, outdoor activities. Inside you will find a fully functional kitchen including full size refrigerator/freezer, microwave, and common small appliances. A washer and dryer can be found in the laundry room. Two separate bedrooms provide sleeping for 4 guests, while available sofa/futons can easily accommodate up to 4 additional guests. The common areas in the Landing are spacious, and allow for multiple activities to occur without cramping anyone's style. A large full bath completes the layout on this single floor, handicap accessible home. Cable television and high speed internet is available, with wifi inside and outside the home. If you need to venture to town, Elkins is located just a few minutes west and offers small town, downtown unique shopping as well as major retailers, grocers, and restaurants. We are conveniently located between two ski areas, Snowshoe Mountain to our south and Canaan Valley to our North East, both within 45 minutes to an hour of the Landing. Golfing can also be found in Elkins, as well as in those ski resort locations. As you can see, we think this place is special, and we think you'll agree!

Too close for comfort!
The cabin on the whole was roomy and nicely decorated. 3 out of 5 for cleanliness. The pillows in the beds were large, round and hard. No extra blankets. My biggest complaint is how close to the road it is! Like 7 feet and your on the white line! This is not a place to stay if you have small children or you’re looking for peace and quiet. Huge trucks going by from dawn till 10:00 pm. Also the write up says it sleeps 6 to 8 and there’s seriously two bunkbeds and one full bed and everybody else ends up on a couch. And although it sleeps 6 to 8 if you show up with more than two people you get charged for the extra people which doesn’t make sense… If you rent a place that sleeps 6 to 8 it should be assumed you may show up with 6 to 8! It is close to a river and very pretty out back but the deck was filthy and the gate was hard to work. We’ll pass next time.
