Smoke Hole In October

Rhona, It was a great weekend and the cabin was awesome as always! You and Hap always make us feel like were coming home instead of visiting somewhere. We had a great time besides a little rain that cant be helped. The new fire ring was a good addition. You need to restock the wood some since we went through most of it Saturday night.

Rhona Kimble

Owner's reply:

Thank You Dave, glad you had a great time even though it rained.

Awesome Cabin

My husband Mike and I and our two little dogs loved the Cabin, the inside is so cozy and clean and a really cute bear theme.We loved our views from the deck and actually twice saw a Bald Eagle fly past. Hap gave us some good ideas of places to go and how to get there both Hap and Rhona was very friendly and helpful. There is a book in the Cabin about some of the families who have lived in the Smoke Hole Area "A place called Smoke Hole" you can get this book at the Library in Franklin, i am enjoying it and recommend it! Totally recommend visiting Spruce Knob, Smoke Hole, and Blackwater Falls the area has amazing beauty that you just will fall in love with and every person we met along the way had a down home friendliness that is different than from where we are from.

Beautiful view, all the comforts of home.

Very comfortable cabin- gorgeous view. Remote enough to feel like you are away, but within easy access to a local convenience store. The owners couldn't be nicer people. We have rented this cabin twice and have loved it both times.

Rhona Kimble

Owner's reply:

Thank You Michelle for the review. We are happy that you have enjoyed our cabin and yes it does have a beautiful country view of the West Virginia Mountains with river below.Thanks again for staying at our beautiful cabin here at Smoke Hole.

Perfect Getaway

Our second stay at Potomac Overlook Cabin. We love this cabin, the decor and peacefulness. Son and family own property on Cave Mountain Road, Upper Tract, easy commute for us to spend time with them. Swimming at Big Bend Campground area refreshing and fun. Mofaits in Franklin was definitely on the must do list, ice cream delicious! August weather was beautiful, enjoyed a night time storm sitting on the porch. On clear nights - so many stars. This country girl enjoyed EVERYTHING in this area. The city boy husband was anxious to return to the cabin and the country (visited August 2012). Hope to make this an annual summer getaway! Hap and Rhona so friendly and helpful. This cabin is so cozy! Be sure to view their website photos to get the perfect view of interior and exterior of cabin. See you next year!

Owner's reply:

Thanks Millie for the great review, and hope you will return next year for another fun filled vacation with us.

exceptional cabin

Just returned from our trip to Upper Tract and the Kimbles could not have been nicer. The cabin is wonderful. Very clean and well stocked with all you need. I was especially surprised at the amount of towels, we usually take extra whenever we travel. No need to do that here. Great view of the mountains and within walking distance to the river. One of our favorite activities was to go on walks nearby and our dog loved it too! No cell phone issues. Ours worked fine. The owners are nearby if you need anything and very friendly. They answer any questions you have. If we come back this way we would definitely stay again.

Rhona Kimble

Owner's reply:

Thank You Patti, we enjoyed meeting you and your husband and dog . Thank you for the nice review and glad to hear you enjoyed walking here which is a nice walk down into the Smoke Hole canyon by the river. Hope you will be able to return sometime in the future.

Rhona Kimble

Owner's reply:

Thank You Dave and Debbie for the wonderful review. We really enjoyed talking with you all and happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at the cabin, we agree that it is a very cozy and beautiful cabin located where you can relax and forget it all with several beautiful places to see in reasonable driving time. See you both next year, stay safe and healthy.

New Years Getaway

When we arrived the cabin was warm and cozy. Luckily we traveled during the holidays and the cabin was all decked out with lovely Christmas decorations. The cabin is perfect for four travelers equipped with linens, towels, toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, and kitchen utensils. The only thing you need to bring are personal items! The view from the deck is panoramic of the mountains. The innkeepers are delightful and friendly. They do their best to provide you with everything you need. They even checked on us several times since we did not have cell service. We borrowed their phone to make calls, and they even shoveled our driveway and walk way. I can't wait to go back! One thing to note is only AT&T works and there is no land line in the cabin. Otherwise it is a perfect country getaway in beautiful WVA!

We have stayed in a lot of cabins in this area threw out 10 yrs, including Smoke Hole & Harmans but this cabin was the Best. It was absolutely beautiful down to all the details. Furniture, rugs, pictures, etc. It made you feel at home. They even had a Christmas tree and other Christmas decorations up. We will definitely be back!

Perfect Getaway

Let me start by saying the owners, Mr. And Mrs. Kimble, are the most friendly, polite, and welcoming people I have ever met. The cabin is brand new and beautiful. It is truely a place to relax and unwind. We spent most of our time on the porch watching deer pass right in front of us and looking at the breathtaking view of the hills and mountains. We have found a place to stay when we come to WV.

Brenda McDonough

Cooperstown PA

Very nice place

We found the cabin clean and friendly, a true welcome home. It was set up for all our needs. We do plan on going back and stay longer. It was a nice place to relax " a do nothing lay back'" kind of place! The scenery was nice here in the summer, but fall, it would be a nice place to be to see the leaves changing. The owners are so friendly, I felt like I knew them as family or long lost friends.

A wonderful visit!

We had a wonderful visit staying at the Potomac Overlook cabin! It's a beautiful cabin and The Kimbles have put a lot of thought and hard work into it! The area was also very nice to visit. We had not been to this area before and enjoyed it! I'd also like to mention the cabin is by itself. Not like other places that feel like a cabin in a "subdivision." The Kimbles are very delightful and friendly and make you feel right at home! They also provide you with information on the area including the MOE FATZ ice cream parlor which is a must-go-to kind of place! Thanks for the great time which included fishing, site seeing and a little nostalgia at the old drive in theater in Franklin! We loved it all!

Owner's reply:

Thank You Teresa for your nice review.Glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope you may be able to come again.

I can't believe we left

The cabin itself is so nice and new made of all wood and well furnished to give it a real comfortable home feeling. We stayed 3 nights and we had a great time setting out by the fire pit at night and burning up lots of dry wood that was provided. The porch has a view of the Potomac and with the surround county side it makes for quite a peaceful setting ,And then the fishing, with one of the best trout streams in the eastern US so close just a 1/4 mile drive to smoke hole canyon and only about 12 miles to Franklin that also has some great places to fish I caught all the fish I wanted and then some I can believe WE LEFT Hope to stay with the Kimble’s again soon Thanks Ed & Sharon

WOW -- so wonderful

A group of us have been coming over to fish the Smoke Hole/Franklin area for 20 years. The only thing now to match the fabulous fishing is this cabin. The owners have left nothing to chance; it is simply wonderful, and it is on the river. We will schedule a year in advance to get this place. Everything is perfect.

Rhona Kimble

Owner's reply:

Thank You Chuck,we are very proud of our new cabin also, we have tried to give the cabin a breath taking appearance once you enter the driveway and a feeling of heaven when you go inside to look outside the big windows and view the mountains, river and sky beyond. It sounds like we have acheived that feeling for you and hope others will experience the same.

Fishing with my Dad

This year I had the opportunity to take my 73 year old Dad fishing and we chose to visit Smoke Hole. Our cabin was absolutely beautiful, pristine views of the Potomac, gorgeously decorated with an outdoorsy feel. The amenities were wonderful and with comfortable beds. There was a fire Fire pit on the property, a cleaning station outside, and was close to prime fishing areas where several trout were caught. There was a local store within minutes, just in case you forgot something. Being a West Virginia native I was quite happy that the mattresses were actually made locally. The view was breathtaking and on one particular morning as we were watching the sun come up, we had the opportunity to see a bald eagle fly over the cabin. The owners were very friendly and available for questions and concerns. I will certainly visit the Potomac Overlook at Smoke Hole again.
