All About Cabins
Surrounded by the Allegheny Mountains and Monongahela National Forest, Cabins is an outdoor community with infinite opportunities for both sport and seclusion. If you’re searching for cabins or vacation cottages to rent in West Virginia, this Potomac Highlands region offers a plethora of mountain villages, forested hills, clear mountain streams, and striking gorges that make for excellent hiking, biking, and fishing conditions.
Indeed, anglers from all over come to this area located on the North Fork of the South Branch Potomac River to wet their lines in the mountain streams and scenic lakes, while winter snow brings skiers and snowboarders to Canaan Valley, which is also part of this area.
US Route 48, also known as “Mountain Skyway,” will take you through Grant, Hampshire, and Hardy counties. Stop at the Lost River Trading Post, an old railway station turned general store, and choose from more than 300 goods from local artisans, crafters, woodworkers, and consignors. Art lovers will want to explore the arts scene in the towns of Davis and Thomas, featuring local galleries and exhibits. End your trip with the incredible hiking trails at Spruce Knob, the highest point in West Virginia.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Cabins?
The best time for cabin vacation rentals in the North Fork of the South Branch Potomac River region is between May and June, and September to November. The mild weather of late spring provides beautiful wildflower blooms for hikers to enjoy in the Spruce Knob-Seneca Rocks National Recreation Area. If you’re up for a road trip, the central West Virginia town of Minden hosts the eclectic Mountain Music Festival in May. Early fall brings gorgeous foliage, making it a wonderful time for hiking at Blackwater Falls State Park or simply driving along the mountainous roads. November to April brings a cold stretch across the region, rewarding those willing to brave the chill with ample winter sporting opportunities and holiday light installations. July and August bring heat and humidity, prime conditions for fishing, tubing, and whitewater rafting.
