River-by Cottage provides a pleasant escape from everyday stress. It is located along the historic Staunton Turnpike in an area of WV that can include day trips to ski, river raft, train trips, etc. It is also located one & a half miles from WV Wesleyan College. River-by Cottage has a view of the Buckhannon River but is NOT "on the river."

Come stay a bit as all are welcome in our cottage!

What a peaceful retreat Nancy's cottage was a perfect place for my wife and I to relax. The place was spotless and ready for our arrival. It's just enough out of the way to be quiet and convenient. Would 100% stay again.

Nancy gave me a warm welcome upon my arrival and Darrell her husband gave me some tips on where best to go for my morning run, which was so nice of them. I was in the area for a teacher conference, so the convenient proximity to downtown and Wesleyan was an added bonus. It was…
