Charming Riverside Guest House & Retreat

OVERVIEW

The Tygart River Guest House features a picturesque riverside setting which overlooks cascading whitewater rapids as far as the eye can see. Walk down the grassy bank to the river rocks below and bask in the glow of the setting sun. Open a window during the evening hours to usher in soothing sounds of rushing water, or take in the scent of a fresh country rain from your porch swing with a good book in hand.

Ideal choice for:

• Family Vacations with kids of all ages

• Outdoor Sports

• Nature Lovers

• Reunions

• Girlfriend Getaways

• Weekend Escapes

• Retreats

• Outdoor Sports Enthusiasts

Whether you're coming for a family reunion, exploring nature, kayaking, going to festivals, or simply in love with the great outdoors - you’ll be in the perfect place. Unspoiled by tourism, this section of the Tygart River is truly an undiscovered gem nestled in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains.

The historic community of Arden, West Virginia, is home to the Tygart River Guest House. It is off the beaten path and serves as a convenient hub with direct access to the river – yet only a 6 mile from the nearest town where you can find restaurants, groceries, gas, pharmacy, hospital and more. The Arden Grade Road was once a main route through the mountains on the B&O railway during the early 1900’s and follows along the river providing spectacular views! It’s also a great place for casual bike rides with access to mountain trails nearby.

HOUSE DESCRIPTION - Newly Renovated!

• Front Porch

• Sleeps 10-12

• 4 Bedrooms

• 3 Full Baths

• Fully furnished

• Close to Philippi/ABU

The Tygart River Guest House offers a spacious “old timey” front porch, complete with swing, rocking chair and plenty of easy lounging wicker furniture. High ceilings will greet you through the front entrance where original bead board walls whisper stories from the distant past and restored yellow pine floors pave the way to a more contemporary present.

The ground floor offers two bedrooms. The one directly to your left upon entering, features a classic full size wrought iron bed dressed in quilts with two lamps and nightstands, armoire and river views. The room to your right boasts a sunny disposition arrayed in hues of red and green. Its companions are an ornate metal queen size bed, ceiling fan, closet and comfortable chairs. Continue down the hall into the open Dining Room which is centrally located and acts as a hub for the whole household to gather between the Living Room and Kitchen. For the musically inclined, there is upright piano dating back to the early 1940’s and a large country table with pullout extensions to comfortably seat 10 people. Additional seating can be found at the breakfast bar.

The Kitchen is equipped with microwave, dishwasher, full size refrigerator, gas cook stove, antique country sink and drain board and ceiling fan/light, dishes, and pots and pans. Glass sliding doors separate the kitchen from a private back deck with patio set.

You’ll be right at home in the spacious Living Room with sloped ceiling and hardwood floors, leather couch, and loveseat. An oak armoire entertainment center houses a TV and DVD Player. One of the most unique features of this home is the large antique oak pocket doors at your disposal to close off the Living Room if more privacy is needed. There is a convenient full bathroom just off the Living Room with a shower and beautiful slate tile floors. On the opposite side of the house is a Laundry Room with washer and dryer, clean tile floors and laundry table. This room leads to another full bathroom with full size tiled shower.

Upstairs, there is a full bathroom with tile floors and windows on all sides giving it a bright airy feel with an antique claw foot bathtub for soothing relaxation. Exiting the bathroom, there is a bedroom on your left complete with a full size bed, roomy closets, TV and DVD player, full river-facing windows and carpeted floors. There is a gorgeous view of the river from the hallway as well, where you can perch for a look from above. Finally, we arrive at the bunk bed room to the right of the hallway. It also has a view of the river, full carpeting and two sturdy bunk beds to comfortably sleep four people.

“Very nice, very nice!”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2017

Beautiful river right out the front door. Great sitting area on the front porch or down closer to the river. House was big, clean and had everything we needed.
