Book a vacation in Summersville, WV! Cabin rentals available for secluded weekend getaways

This camping cabin rental in Summersville, West Virginia, is perfect for very small families and sleeps up to four people comfortably. This is a cozy little cabin rental that guests will definitely appreciate on a rainy day or chilly night. The host has installed solar lights. The bed is a rollaway bed from the 1950s, along with one full-size bed and one full-size futon. There is no running water, indoor plumbing, refrigeration, or cook stove in this camping cabin so guests will still need to bring their camp stove, grill, and a cooler. There is a communal grill provided which glampers are more than welcome to use. Guests will need to provide their own bed linens and pillows.

Since moving to this site in 2002, the hosts have always tried to be self-sustaining and to let the land provide for them without raping it, and never waste anything. The cabin was a project that the host undertook to provide campers an alternate choice of lodging yet still staying simple and primitive. It was built with sweat equity and recycled and reused items were used whenever possible. The flooring base came from the old shelter that burned and then fell down from snow. The wood used for the rest of the cabin (poplar, black walnut, cherry, and butternut) came from trees that were downed during the epic June 29, 2012, derecho storm that hit West Virginia. Two of the windows came from a very old trailer that was left on the property when the hosts bought it.

A park-style barbecue grill is provided as well as the charcoal. The hosts even provide guests with a propane camping cook stove. Glampers can also enjoy an evening around the fire pit. Tables and camp chairs are also provided so guests can enjoy the outdoor tranquility of the Gauley River National Recreation Area. Cabin rentals like these are the perfect excuse for a getaway here in one of these impressive examples of the best Summersville, WV cabins.

Clean portajohns are provided as well as an outdoor hot water shower.

Guests are not required to bring their own firewood as this is kindly provided by the host.

There are solar lights in this glamping property.

This totally private glamping property is the perfect base for Gauley River National Recreation Area adventure. The site is located only a half mile away from the river access. Glampers can bring their own gear and fish, canoe, paddleboat, and/or kayak. Guests are welcome to explore the hiking trails on the 120-acre farm, too. Bird watchers love staying here—especially in the early mornings and late at night. Mountain biking is also available.

Firewood is free and the park-style grills, fire pit grills, and camping cook stoves are also free to use. Shelters will keep guests dry on rainy days when they still want to be outside. Clean portajohns and a "to die for" outdoor hot water shower are a couple of amenities. The hosts will always have guests' campfire started for their arrival.

Summersville is located in the heart of West Virginia and surrounded by the cool and pristine waters which flow from the mountains, making it a perfect destination for water activities including swimming and whitewater rafting on the Gauley or New rivers, or boating on Summersville Lake. Glampers can also hike along the Muddlety Creek Trail. Other activities in the area include bicycling, wildlife watching, photography, dining, horseback riding, and bowling. Additionally, Summersville Lake and Dam, Carnifex Ferry Battlefield State Park, and Battle Run Beach are also great attractions to check out in the area of the glamping property.
