ATTRIBUTES AND HIGHLIGHTS

The nearby historic Log Cabin Graham House is located on the West side of the Greenbrier River.  The”Graham Ferry” was once located here on the Greenbrier River.  The Graham Ferry ( community of Lowell ) would have transported goods and travelers across the Greenbrier River.  Mule teams, horses carts and wagons traveling into the Wolf Creek Area or toward what is now Hinton and Sandstone.  The old Ferry Crossing has long since been replaced by bridges, roads and Amtrak.  Trains still pass by the property on their journey.

The Grahams Ferry earthen grade is still visible on the East side of the Greenbrier River and is used to this very day as the River Access for the Fishtales Cabin at the mouth of Kellers Creek as shown in the photo gallery.  A perfect spot to walk down to the river along the same ground that early pioneers passed over.  Easy take in and out for Kayaks, Canoes and little swimmers.   A natural shoal in the river created a deeper area in the water here for the Ferry.   The shoal nowadays is a gentle rippling slide on the river.   This shallow area near the shoal and the ferry grade has often been a favorite place for river baptisms.

If your ready for fun in the sun, a swim in the cool water, watching the exciting train or fishing for Walter the Legend trophy fish then the FishTales Cabin is your destination.  Relaxing times, casting a line, porch setting, campfires and storytelling.  Boathouse with lofts and power (16 x 23) can be used for sleeping area / recreation space.  Pool table and refrigerator convey in the boathouse.

SURROUNDING AREA

THE GREENBRIER RIVER

The Greenbrier River is one of the most charming rivers in West Virginia. At more than 150 miles long, it has great rural scenery, rich history, and excellent fishing. The Greenbrier was a Native American warpath and had a big role in the development of region’s early timber industry. Today, it offers some of the best recreation opportunities in the state, including very productive fishing spots. The smallmouth fishing in the Greenbrier is world-class. On a typical fishing day, you’ll see expert fly fishers tossing hand-tied flies from guided rafts, novices wading with push-button casting rods, and everyone in between. If you like to wade, you’ll find plenty of access points in and along the Greenbrier River. If you prefer to float, the river has great paddling on one of the longest undammed rivers in the east.

NEARBY HINTON

Hinton is just 15 miles from the property. At Hinton you will find shopping along with three rivers and a lake: New River, Mouth of The Greenbrier River, Bluestone River and Bluestone Lake. Also located in Hinton–Wild Water Express Water Park with two very tall man-made waterslides, in-ground pool and kiddie pool. There is a large in-ground pool at Bluestone State Park and an indoor pol at Pipestem Resort.

Local Summers County festivals are popular events. Appropriately named, the Water Festival is held every summer, along with Railroad Days, Festival of the River Music, John Henry Festival (Talcott) and more. Historic Hinton offers walking tours, an amphitheater, cafes, museums, boutiques, fine dining, a movie theatre and a cultural center all among turn of the century architecture. Several streets in Hinton are paved with the original brick from bygone days. Driving over the bricks while passing the Iconic Churches, Victorians, Romanesque, Greek Revival, Georgian and other classic architecture is like riding through a living museum.
