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 small-mouth 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.

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 waterslides, in-ground pool and kiddie pool. A large in-ground pool at Bluestone State Park and the Indoor Pool at Pipestem Resort.

Local Summers County Festivals are a popular event. 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.

Bring your fishing pole and your boat. If you forget them no worries – One of the largest Outdoor Outfitters Supply Stores in the area is also located in Hinton.
