If you want to rent our cabin, email me at livingwatercabins@comcast.net or call David’s Cell (615) 477-7476.  Details about the cabin are under “About” Tab/Page on your computer or phone.

Though we love our life in the city, the therapeutic quality of nature at the cabin is fact, and the soulful benefits are immense. Henry David Thoreau went to the woods because he “wished to live deliberately” and “to suck out all the marrow of life.” Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote that the outdoors brings eternal youth. We find that this place eludes the tick of time and replenishes our blood with life. May you find your moment of tranquility among the ripples of the river, as you explore this land of the amazing Monongahela National Forest.

The Williams River received both of the DNR planned trout stockings for February, which were on the 8th and the 22nd.  More good news is that the mountains received another foot of fresh snow to feed the streams this spring and summer.  Department of Natural Resources (DNR) were also able to access the Williams River to make the January stocking of trout between snow falls.  Now, DNR moves to weekly stockings of trout in the Williams River and the Cranberry River.  Yeah!!!   Welcome to the West Virginia Trout Fishing Season 2016!!!

If you like trout fishing in the beautiful mountain range of West Virginia, renting our cabin makes sense.  It is located on the Williams River, and the Cranberry River is just over the mountain.  The official 2016 West Virginia DNR trout stocking program for the Williams River and The Cranberry River has begun.  The official first stocking for both rivers occurred on January 7th 2016.  Our cabin will open for the season in March and run through to the first week in December.  May is booking up.

The fall color variations have begun shifting from near all deep greens to the vibrant splashes of Orange, Red and Yellow followed by gold, brown, silver and all spectrums of gray with blue sky, blue water and the forever-greens.  Dress wise for comfort while out in the rugged forest, and bring flannels and movies for when its time to come in.  Pull out your favorite, coffees, teas, and hot coco chocolate – popcorn, dark chocolate, and good-and-plenty.


We had a great time!  From time to time the rain was a little challenging, but that is why we have movies!  For a lot of detail and photographs about the cabin go to the “About” Tab, and click on it.IMG_3925 IMG_3968 IMG_3973 IMG_3983 IMG_3988 IMG_4007 FullSizeRender
