Accommodation Description

  • Kid-friendly
  • Barbecue
This riverside 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, and the cabin is powered by solar energy. 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.
