Mystic Mountain Reviews

View from the too

There is something magical about this cabin. The long driveway (so we’ll maintained!) and the moment when you drive around the last corner and see the cabin and the view is exhilarating. Sitting on the porch each morning and experiencing the different weather we always get. The hot tub under the stars. The proximity to the Top Yough (we love playing in the rocks and river here), Swallow Falls, Yough Lake. We look forward to our week here every summer.

Winter wonderland!

We were snowed in at Mystic Mountain, and wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else! The cab was great, super clean and had everything we needed. We really weren’t able to go anywhere local because of the snow storm, but enjoyed watching the adorable birds on the porch and spending time in the hot tub when not relaxing by the fire. Our kids LOVED the place and can not wait to go back. We had to carry out 4 year old out crying because he didn’t want to leave. If you’re looking to really get away from things, this is a great place and great hosts.
*you definitely need a 4×4 truck. The hosts have a dozer and will clear the trail to leave if it snows.

Spectacular Views

We traded in our typical summer beach vacation the last few years to a cabin in the fall instead. Mystic Mountain did not disappoint!! We typically visit someone new every year, but I think we will definitely be back here! Very secluded, peaceful, and amazing views. Our weather was cold, rainy, and very foggy, but we still had a great time. The fireplace was perfect, we baked cookies, played pool, did a puzzle, and watched movies and just relaxed. The cabin was well equipped, and very clean. The owners were very helpful and quick to answer any questions we had. Highly recommend! Thank you for an enjoyable few days!

Heaven on Earth

My son and I stayed at Whispering Pines to get away from the Covid stressful world and to meet up with life long friends . Unfortunately Covid crashed our company plans but honestly with all the wonderful farm animals we never felt lonely at all. You simply will not find a more peaceful and accommodated place or a kinder host than this one. Definitely a gem of a find . The spacious cabin was cozy and spotless clean, the surrounding pasture views from the worth painting a picture of. The wonderful animals barnyard cats , chickens and of course Midnight and Ike. My son loved seeing and feeding the pony and mule . My son is autistic and this trip was very good for both of us mentally and emotionally. Much needed time to get away from the stress of the world and still being able to connect to Wifi for my son’s online schooling. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of essentials to make an early Thanksgiving dinner We all truly enjoyed this peaceful home ,walking in nature and spending time with the farm animals.. This place truly must be glorious to see in full bloom spring or summer. We are already looking to book again in warmer weather.

Incredible Two Weeks To Decompress

I had the opportunity to stay at three different cabins during my two week stay at Cranesville Country Rentals – Country Charm, Whispering Pines and Mystic Mountain. The first two places were fun because there were ponds nearby to go fishing and I had a supply of fresh eggs from the hen house each morning which was a real treat. The chickens could not have been more entertaining as they wandered around the grounds near me whenever I would take walks. I don’t think it hurt that they enjoyed my Ritz cracker treats I gave them on a daily basis. Fresh eggs for Ritz crackers…a very fair trade off! Mystic Mountain was an entirely different experience for me. Situated at the top of a 1/2 mile windy gravel road up a hill allowed for a very remote experience. The views were simply outstanding and the peacefulness with no one around and no sounds was really good for my soul! Laura and Rob are simply some of the best hosts I have ever encountered in my travels. Laura was always at the ready to answer any questions I had along with providing me great guidance on places to visit in the area. These cabins are such gems and a great find for me. I can’t wait to come back for another visit hopefully sooner than later.

Mystic Mountain was above and beyond any expectations we had!!

This was our first time staying in one of Cranesville Cabins and we will most definalty be back. The pictures do no justice to the beautiful cabin and location with VIEWS. We are frequent travelers and the cleanliness of this cabin is top of the line. We met Laura the first night and she helped with any questions we had and also invited us to come to the farm to fish which the kids loved, while there we also met her husband, very nice guy. All around very good experience and we will absolutley be returning soon!!

Mystic Mountain is structurally beautiful,

Mystic Mountain is structurally beautiful, combining rustic ambiance with luxuriant comfort. The giant fireplace plus the woodstove in the basement provide warmth and rich satisfaction in making a crackling fire. The long driveway, steep and sometimes treacherous, leads to the top of the small mountain where you are met with spacious, beautiful views. The front porch swing is the best spot to watch the brilliant sunrises. We absolutely loved our stay feeling closer to nature but also enjoyed comfortable beds and the hot tub. We left feeling absolutely refreshed and peaceful.

Great place to unwind

Mystic mountain cabin was a wonderful get away for me and my girlfriends for a few days. The view is fantastic. Hot tub was a great perk. Beds comfortable.

Mystic Mountain is a fantastic

Mystic Mountain is a fantastic cabin with a beautiful view. Our family of 5 enjoyed the clean, spacious rooms and gorgeous mountain view. We spent time in the hot tub and downstairs playing pool. The beds were comfortable, and we appreciated the tv and wifi. The kids loved fishing in the catch and release pond. They spent hours there over the weekend catching fish. We also went on a hike in Swallow Falls State Park, and we did a lot of activities at Deep Creek Lake. It was a great weekend with a good balance of fun activities and relaxing!

Exceeded Our Expectations!

My friends and I wanted to get away from the city for the weekend and this place exceeded our expectations. Laura and Rob were the absolute sweetest. They had cleared out the driveway of snow by the time we got there. We had some trouble bringing one of our two wheel drive vehicles up the gravel pathway. This was our own fault (they did say to bring a four wheel drive). We thought our car would be fine with just half in inch, but because the driveway is uphill, it wasn’t able to make it up. All in all, it made for quite an adventure that night, probably one we won’t forget. By the time we hiked up the hill to the cabin, we were greeted by a warm and cozy fire that Laura/Rob had started for us before we got there. The cabin was beautifully decorated, very well maintained, and clean! We took full advantage of the hot-tub. The view is absolutely breathtaking. I will surely be back!


Will Be Back Again Soon!

Laura, was the best host ever. She made our stay at the Mystic Mountain very comfortable and memorable. The road leading to the house is a little steep but my Crosstour and my friends Acura TL made it just fine. The cabin, the view and the hot tub were all breath taking. I will be back again soon!


This Place Was The Perfect Getaway!


February 2018

This place was the perfect getaway! There was beautiful scenery, many different amenities, and a lot of fun things to do around the town. Laura was a great host and very accommodating. The cabin inside was breathtaking, along with the view overlooking the mountains.


Really Nice Place!

Really nice place!  Quiet and house was really clean. Has Pool Table and Hot Tube that made it also really nice. Laura was a really nice and great host. I recommend to anyone to stay there if they want a relaxing time. Not disappointed at all!


We Will Absolutely Be Back!


February 2018

Laura was awesome! She met us when we got there to help us figure out a few minor details with the fireplace, answered all of our questions and was extremely hospitable! We will absolutely be back to rent off of Laura at Mystic Mountain!


The View Is Spectacular!

The view is spectacular and the cabin is very quiet and remote. We saw deer grazing in the meadow next to the cabin each day, and even saw some wild turkeys. This would be a great place to stay for a family or group trip.


What A Perfect Getaway!

This is the perfect place to relax, unwind, and enjoy the company of friends and loved ones! The house is spotless, it has everything you need, and the views are breathtaking (especially from the hot tub.) We didn’t leave the house all that much but did make time for a leisurely hike around a few waterfalls, to rent a boat on the lake, and to buy/eat delicious pies. It was hard to leave and I already want to go back! What a perfect getaway!


Great Place To Stay!

Great place to stay! We have suggested it to friends and will definitely come back!


We Had A Amazing Time!

We had an amazing time! The view is outstanding and Laura was a great host! But I would really make sure your car can make it up a mountain on a long gravel road. I was pretty worried about my Mazda 3 but we made it.


My Stay on The Mountain was idyllic!

My stay on the mountains was idyllic! Laura came to greet me once I arrived with fresh eggs from her barn and to go over the ropes. I enjoyed a peaceful weekend of solitude; warming myself by the multiple fires, soaking in the hot tub, staring up at the stars, and enjoying all the wildlife. Be sure to print directions because GPS was not working on the last leg of my trip, but cell reception was no problem once I reached the cabin. All in all, Mystic Mountains was a perfect escape!


This Place is Amazing

From beginning to end this place is amazing. Gorgeous views an great place to stay with family and decompress from the hectic world. We opted to stay here instead of a hotel for West Virginia university graduation and it was a mini vacation we didn’t expect. It was so hard to leave! Laura is very attentive if you have any questions or needs.
