The cottage is near the entrance to an eco-friendly campground and retreat center in the Potomac Highlands region of West Virginia. A wild and wonderful white water stream permeates the boulder and hemlock rich forested property.

The space

Abrams Creek is near many extraordinary recreational sites, but is also its own destination. You are never far from our wild, whitewater stream that runs through a majestic hemlock forest.
In some places, the stream is a constant source of energy and playfulness; in other places, it is
peaceful and calming, inviting you to soak in its beauty. The forest offers a vast array of plants,
and signs of wildlife are everywhere.
In keeping with the campground setting, the retreat cottage is clean and simple, but not highly decorated. It has comfortable beds, full kitchen, washer/dryer, satellite TV, WiFi, and phone with free long distance.

Guest access

20 acres of hemlock forest and a wild whitewater stream.
Full kitchen, washer/dryer, WiFi internet, phone with free long distance in the US, satellite TV.
Mount Storm (3 miles) has a general store, gas station, library, motel, sports and recreation store, and public park.

Interaction with guests

Guests are welcome to interact with hosts as they choose or be as private and secluded as they wish to be.

The cabin was the perfect fit for our bachelors party and we couldn't have picked a better spot! Michael was incredibly accommodating and our visit as easy and enjoyable as possible! Highly recommend the spot if you just want to get away and disconnect for a few days!

This is the place to go if you want to see the rugged-nature side of West Virginia while also having all the amenities available. It's a very spacious cottage and has a fully functioning kitchen with cookware to keep the food coming. The campground is beautiful and the scenery within walking distance is the perfect getaway. When cabin fever starts to set in, the towns of Davis and Thomas are small and interesting places filled with lovely people. I look forward to the time we get to go again and bring more friends/family with us! Mike

This place was a perfect getaway from the city. The camp sites and cabins are just far enough away to feel secluded. The cottage itself is a little older, and normal wear and tear was present, but overall this house was a good deal. The cottage is located within 40 mins of several places we wanted to explore. We were able to ski at Timberline, and we explored the property with our dogs who loved having access to the river and a large area to play. While we only had two people in our party, this cottage has enough space for at least 6 people! We will definitely vist again!

We had a restorative weekend at Abrams Creek. The land is beautiful and the house was cozy. Michael was an exceptionally generous and responsive host. We visited with a group of folks to celebrate a birthday. The logistics felt easy even with our large dog which wouldn't be welcome many places. We would love to visit in the future for a longer period.

Was happy with the cottage. It is an old house that has been converted for rental use. It has some dings and scrapes but nothig that inhibits the use or comfort. Plenty of room for 9 guys, big kitchen and dinning room. Two different wifi routers good Internet connection. Easy check in and friendly staff. Only negative was location. Couldnt really see the creek from the porch, and there was no path straight down to the creek from the house. Woods and brush made it hard to access creek at cottage site. Nice swimming hole and access farther down stream maube 1/2 mile. The cottage was also right in front of the main lodge, but we had complete privacy and no one complained about are rowdy behavior. So it wasn't an issue like it could have been.

A very easy and flexible check-in. The cottage has pretty much everything you need. A decent location for last-minute, multi-day ski trip to Wisp, especially when all the closer cabins are booked.
