Your stay at this property will benefit by our ability to provide a 24/7 staff. What does this mean to you ? Unlike others rental options, our 'on premise' personnel are a 1/4 mile away, with the training to make most repairs, or mediate any situation that might arise from a light that has blown to a hot tub malfunction. We are professionals. Our standards reflect this as we will monitor and service your hot tub DAILY !! Testing, and then treating the water as required to assure its safe use. So if you are searching for a historic cabin with a riverfront location, you can end your search here with the Rhododendron cabin. You will soak in its history and charm from a hot tub you could fish from ! Built in the early 1900s, the one thing that has not changed is its majestic RIVERFRONT view of the Cheat River. Like generations past, you can sit on the furnished, screened porch and watch the river roll by, or try your luck at catching supper. After a day of hiking in the Monongahela National Forest, slip into a PRIVATE HOT TUB… so close to water’s edge that you could fish from it! STEP BACK IN TIME, AND EXPERIENCE WHERE GENERATIONS HAVE COME TO GETAWAY! Experience the ambiance of the traditional log structure, with cathedral ceiling, hand hewn logs and chinking, and large stone fireplace. Equipped with quality gas logs, a flip of a switch will set the stage! For those who just want to kick back and be with family and friends, the covered screened porch offers a wonderful spot to view the river, rain or shine. A full staff will assure that you are adequately served. They will visit your property daily with fresh towels and supplies. Most important, they will monitor your hot tub DAILY. We've been in business for 35 years and have the highest BBB rating available. We are professionals who operate by a professional standard. The personalized linens, and attractive décor add a special touch to make the Rhododendron unique, and one of a kind. Two bedrooms on the main floor have a queen bed, and the loft has a set of twins. The kitchen is fully equipped with all of the essentials, to include dinnerware that matches the décor. Remodeled to provide all of the modern appointments you would expect to find in a charming mountain getaway, it includes forced air heat, air conditioning, cable TV. Additional fans, a charcoal barbecue grill, and picnic table are provided. Because of its close proximity to the water, the Rhododendron is not the best choice for young children, or toddlers. Book your spot today! Gorgeous views await. Let your vacation begin here, where you will be greeted by a warm hot tub and fresh linens on the beds.More
