**UPDATE: We are doing are best to help you and your family travel safely. In addition to our normal cleaning routine between stays, we have added several precautions. The main one is; we are trying to put at least a 24 hour empty window before and after every reservation that we get for awhile. This allows us to wait a little while after a guest leaves before we send in our cleaning crew, for their safety, and also prevents having different guests in the same place to soon after one another. We have several units that we rent short term, so if you're looking to come at a certain time and the unit your looking at is booked, please contact us and we can check if we have any of the other units open. As always, we use bleach based cleaners and are focusing on commonly touched items, like remotes, door knobs and light switches. We also leave some cleaning supplies under the kitchen sink, if you would prefer to wipe things down for yourselves at anytime during your stay. Also, we continue to supply, hand soap at every sink for quick hand washing after being out and about. We've always been a contactless check in and check out, so that hasn't changed. If you have any questions feel free to contact us, we are happy to help you travel safely.** 

Over 2000 square feet to give your family or group room to spread out, located just 4 miles north on Rt. 19 from Winterplace Ski Resort. It's 4 miles to Glade Springs and 15 miles to Beckley.

We highly recommend that you purchase travel insurance. Problems can arise in multiple ways and travel insurance can be a low cost guard against losing your money if you have last minute problems and have to cancel. In the past, some of our guests have obtained insurance by going to for details and to purchase. We did call the people at InsuraneMyTrip and they do have plans that will cover for Covid issues but there are several important steps and needs to be done shortly after making your first deposit. The plans are called "Cancel For Any Reason" CFAR. Check with your insurance agent before deciding what insurance to purchase. We DO NOT endorse any insurance in particular.

Enjoy skiing or snowboarding right down the road. Winterplace offers skiing, snow-tubing runs and a snowboard terrain park. Winterplace Resort is conveniently located only 5 minutes away from I-77 at the Ghent exit.


During the spring, summer and fall don’t think there is nothing to do. We are close to all the fun that southern West Virginia has to offer. Whitewater rafting, kayaking, river tubing, rock climbing, hiking, horseback riding etc. All different kinds of outdoor fun are waiting for you to take advantage of. There are several state and national parks, like Little Beaver State Park, and Grandview National Park. We are also near Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve. The temperature in the mountains of West Virginia remains cooler than a lot of the surrounding states, so this is great place to come cool off. Enjoy something different from the beach, take your family out into nature.

And for anytime of the year fun, Beckley has something for everyone. Of course, there are all your favorite fast food and sit down restaurants, as well as some home-grown restaurants that might become your new favorites. There is a wide variety of different shops. The Tamarack has everything you might want to see from our unique West Virginia craftsman. There are a lot of different antique shops and Crossroads Mall for those that might want something a little familiar. There is the Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine, where you can tour an actual coal mine and let the kids explore the coal mining town and the Youth Museum. During good weather, there are also trails, playground, basketball and tennis courts and a pool with a waterslide. There is also, Mountain State Miniature Golf which doesn’t have just mini-golf but offers a small coffee shop and an indoor climbing wall. Beckley is a great place to spend a few days exploring all it has to offer and it’s only a quick drive up Interstate 77.

We're located along Route 19 just north of Winterplace Ski Resort, about 5 miles. Get off Interstate 77 at the Ghent exit (exit 28) head toward Route 19 on Odd Road. You'll take a left turn off of Odd Road onto 19 North. Stay on that road and in about 4 miles you will see a Bar and Grill and Cool Ridge Service Center (auto repair only, no gas) on the right, the Coal Miner's Cabin is directly across the road from them. There is a trash bin located along the road with 1468 on it in green and white reflector numbers.

Property was nice, spacious, great location. We were approximately 4 miles from ski resort.

Cabin is huge and we could have slept a dozen more. Owners were attentive and responsive to general questions from the initial contact til we left. Lots of lists provided for places to eat, things to do and see, as well as discounts for local attractions. Well done. Would and probably will come back.

Perfect location for a weekend getaway for skiing or snowboarding since Winterplace is just a quick drive down the street. While it does only have 2 bedrooms the house could easily sleep 10-16 people - a lot of room for air mattresses in the living room if you need to spread out.

The house was very clean and spacious! The location was very close to Winterplace. It was the perfect place to stay for a ski trip. Cindy was very nice and helpful throughout the whole experience. I would stay here again and definitely recommend this house to other people.

Review from AirBnB

We had a blast at Cindy’s place! The location was perfect and we were very close to Winterplace resort. The space had enough room to accommodate for our group and it was exactly what we needed!
