Back in Time Reviews

Love everything

We are repeat customers and have such a great time every stay. Laura is very attentive to respond if we need anything. The cabin was clean and comfortable and the property was impeccable. Thank you!

Go back in Time

Back in Time- the location was stunning and peaceful. We were discussing the some details such as the door locks, closets, cabinets And the gorgeous upstairs bathroom. The mill-work was crafted with love and care.

COVID-19 will keep my travels close to home. Formerly, I would take trips to the beach, I’m now a mountain cabin convert. Plus, the mountains are so much cooler and safer. The smell of lilac blooms while sitting on the porch in the morning, with a cup of coffee, nothing like it!

Back in Time was the

Back in Time was the perfect place to spend a few days. We all got a much-needed recharge. The fresh mountain air provided us an opportunity to breathe deeply and find some peace and calm. The grounds were beautifully kept, and we loved being able to play games outdoors during the day and make a campfire to gaze into at night. I was initially concerned because there was no air conditioning, but it could not have been more comfortable. Having the windows open and the ceiling fans on kept the house cool, great for sleeping, and so nice to hear the birds singing when you woke up. Laura and Rob were the perfect hosts – it felt like we were visiting family. We found some fun side trips for hiking and a picnic , but we found just staying at the house, relaxing, and using the hot tub was our best choice. During a time in the world where many things are uncertain, we were thankful to find a few carefree days. I guess John Denver was right, “Almost heaven, West Virginia…”

What a place! Quiet out of the way! A great way to recharge your battery! My family and I will be back sooner rather then later!

Such a cozy cabin!

This is my 8th time staying at one of Laura’s cabins and it was amazing as always! Always such a beautiful and relaxing trip. Will absolutely be back for a 9th time soon!

Anniversay Weekend

Stayed at the Back in Time property for the 3 rd time celebrating me and my wife’s 3rd Wedding Anniversary. We love staying at this property. We love the rustic feel. As we have done in the past we shared this weekend with two other couples (our closest friends). The weather was oddly warm on Friday and Saturday but we still enjoyed the firepit and hot tub. Perfect weekend to just relax with friends and unwind from the busy holidays. We will be back next January to this property and probably be going to Mystic Mountain property in October.

Laura is a gracious host … love the dogs visiting (Diesel and Jax’s). Still have to meet Laura’s husband Rob sometime … lol !!!

Perfect Weekend .. Perfect Place

Back In Time

The cabin was perfect and exactly as described/pictured. We arrived late to the lights being on, a warm cabin, and hot tub bubbling. The living room area is very nice and has a large TV with many stations. The WIFI was a nice feature to contact people after arriving. The kitchen is very nice, clean, and spacious. All appliances worked well and had a nice array of kitchen utensils and cookware. Bathroom area on the 1st floor with shower and laundry was clean and useful before/after the hot tub which is directly out the back door. Hot tub worked well. The upstairs has 3 large rooms with nice beds/bedding and extra blankets in each room, had large closets also if needed. The bathroom upstairs was extremely nice/clean with the large shower and tub. The bar area on the first floor would of been fun if we had other couples with us. Very spacious cabin. Lighting everywhere. Everywhere from top to bottom was spotless. The large wrap-around porch was perfect; it would be amazing in the summer time to enjoy warm weather on. On the far side was a bench/grill and a fire pit a few steps away from the cabin. My girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay and weekend away. The cabin met and exceeded our expectations. 5/5

My husband, our daughter and son-in-law were there for a much needed weekend get away. What a wonderful place! Beautiful and peaceful. Laura made us feel right at home and was so sweet. We travel a good bit and I have never been greeted with such warmth and caring. The home was absolutely gorgeous and provided all the comforts and more! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience. We will definitely be returning.

Amazing Weekend

We had the most amazing weekend at this wonderful cabin!  The location is perfectly remote but easily accessible by highway and only a 15 to 20 minute drive to Deep Creek Lake.  This cabin is even more spectacular in person.  We appreciated all the little details like the firewood, heated floors, hot tub, and the beautiful upstairs shower!


Pleasantly Surprised

You will be pleasantly surprised at the beauty and coziness of Laura’s cabin.  I cannot imagine a more amazing place to stay!
