This charming farmhouse was built in 1922. Nestled up against hilly pastures, its beautiful views & country air will help you breathe easy again. The front porch offers an expansive view of Clover Fork river valley with WV's "wild & wonderful" hills jutting up in the distance. Dotting the landscape behind the back fence, mama munch and calves play. Great for personal retreats, or group get-aways. Private, quiet & comfortable. 25 minutes to town. Please read all info before booking.

The space

This property includes two sweet and beautiful calico cats for critter patrol in and around the old farmhouse. If you are allergic, please be sure to bring medication. We cannot guarantee a dander-free environment. If you let them in, please let them out at night. No litter box in the house.

Guest access

The house is yours! And feel free to spend time in the schoolhouse set up as a large living room. A great place to relax, but older and just as fragile as the house. Please be kind to it.

IMPORTANT: Since we are in a rural area, our Wi-Fi is from a satellite dish, not DSL, so you DO NOT HAVE UNLIMITED ACCESS. Please keep your devices on "airplane mode" when not in use. Overuse of wi-fi results in depleted GBs, slower connecting speeds or complete loss of connection.

Interaction with guests

We are just two more miles up the road and accessible for any needs, questions or emergencies you might have.

Other things to note

Neighbors are friendly, helpful if needed, and all will respect your privacy. If you're on the front porch, feel free to wave to the occasional passersby and you'll get a smile and wave in return. They love the old house, and many have stories about attending the school.

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events

1) No outside guests, parties or illegal drugs.
2) The house is old and fragile. Be careful, be kind, and be clean.
3) Do not feed or engage the wildlife, or cows behind the fence. There are mothers protective of their calves.
4) For the most part, please stay within the fenced yard. Walks may be taken up and down the country road in front of the house. However, there is a small waterfall about 1/8 mile up the creek bed you can hunt for. Just stay along the creek and don't venture into woods or bother cows if you see them. If you'd like to hike more into the hills, let us know and we'll give you directions to our place just up the road. Lots of beautiful trails and ridge tops to explore.

This place is out of the way, be prepared for dusty one lane roads as stated. Its an old farmhouse and the back door is locked via a chain. Unfortunately we couldn't see the mountains because of the fog but from what we could make out the night of our arrival it's very beautiful.

We had a great time being there it was nice and quiet and the middle of nowhere a great View wish there was a better service out there had a hard time reaching family and getting ahold of people there's not much to do for a little kid with no TV or anything but with the WiFi usage she was able to watch TV on her iPad and she loved getting in the shower and the cats outside

Response from Jeannie:
Yes, Wi-Fi is limited with the satellite at the house, and broadband is not good on mountain roads, but the land line is available to guests with unlimited long distance. Please read the entire site & see all photos, the description and pictures show that guests have full access to the school house next door which is set up as a living room with television, DVD player, and games for kids. Vacuum cleaner died, but floors are good now!

Nice house on a senic drive to the country side. We only stayed 1 night with a family of 5 on our way home. Had a minor issue which was quickly delt with by Jeannie. Great place to relax and wine down with lots of room for large family or group. Would recommend to family and friends.

My partner, Bill, and I moved to West Virginia in 2000. We love its quiet beauty and simplified life, and want to give others the opportunity to experience the same.

Besides airbnb guests, we host retreatants, and college groups who come from all over the country for their spring and fall breaks. With the students, we do service projects for the poor and elderly in our community and give them a taste of Appalachian culture. More than that, they learn first-hand how extractive industries (coal, gas, oil, timber) and their own energy consumption cause the social, environmental and economic issues of this "poverty pocket" of a America. By the end of their time here, they're a little wiser, living more simply, and ready to make a difference back home.

Hosting you helps us continue to educate, advocate and contemplate in these ancient hills. To learn more, look up Appalachian Catholic Worker.
