Why Us

Trademark Hospitality....it's more to us than just a slogan, it's a way of life.  From the Gatekeeper who greets you upon your arrival to the groundskeeper and housekeeper that have made it spot on for your stay, this is what we do.  When you choose us for your vacation rendezvous, know what we live and play here too and take pride in our local knowledge of the region.

Whether it's information on the latest geocaching spots in one of the many State and National Parks that are literally at our door step, to that great hidden local fishin' hole, you'll feel as though you've found an old friend to guide you around during your stay.

When we say that we are where incredible scenery and warm hospitality meet we really mean it, but don't just take our word for it, check out some of the following comments taken out of the guest books in the cabins of folks who have stayed here in the past.  You can also keep up with us on Facebook.

I found your place online while looking for a winter getaway to surprise my husband (who is an outdoors fanatic) for his birthday. And what a winter wonderland we found! With almost eight inches of snow on the ground, our boys, ages 5 and 2, loved our snowy 'hike, sledding, and building a snowman, as well as many snow angels as they could! After cooking dinner and making s'mores on the fire, we retired inside the cozy cabin for an evening of games and puzzles. Our stay was perfect. Summersville Lake Retreat was exactly what I was looking for. We can't wait to come explore your place during other seasons, as well! Ann, Brandon, Austin and Lee Willard, Charleston, WV
