The house is vacant between stays. It is cleaned after a guest vacancy, and if it has been sitting for a long period, it is cleaned again. This house may have new insects due to both the vacancy and being in the country.

While Base Camp WV - Durbin is a good place for children, please note this is for older children. The house is not child proof. There is not a crib, or outlet plugs, or safety gates. If you choose to bring younger children please exercise caution with supervision.

Guests are welcome to the entire property. There is off street parking.

I will make every effort to assist you with the unexpected events that may occur during your stay. Please message me in the app for communication.

This is a small town with nice people. It is very quiet at night, one of the many charms. The train runs a few times a day during the summer. Staying here puts you within walking distance of the trail into the Mon National Forest and fishing in the West Fork of the Greenbrier.

Durbin is 12 miles from Greenbank, 29 miles from Snowshoe, and 48 miles from Elkins.

This is a rural neighborhood. Please be respectful by being a good neighbor; Which includes keeping noise down in the night hours and maintaining a clean area. Thank you.
