Tired of pitching a tent, or sleeping on the ground is just not your thing? We've got a beautiful camping cabin ready for you! It has solar lights, NO heat, NO running water and is an alternative to tent camping. There is an outhouse out back, or guests may use the bathrooms and showers in the main cabin, which is a short walk down the hill (where you checked in). There is a new "barn cabin" about 100 ft from this camping cabin, so you may see others up in the cabins' area.

The beautiful drive to get here sets the tone for your visit. We are near Franklin, WV on a scenic motorcycling and bicycling route. Your hosts will meet you upon arrival so please head up to the main log cabin to check in.

You are sure to see deer and other wildlife - nature abounds! Views anywhere on the property are amazing! A liability waiver is required due to the nature of the property. We will attempt to provide it before check in for your review, but if that fails, you will be given it when you arrive.

We have an historic homestead on the property to explore (the Ananias Pitsenbarger Farm), plus we have a fishing pond for the kids. Amenities are shared by all campers and include: fire pit (FIREWOOD IS PROVIDED AND FREE) and grill (bring your own 1 lb propane canister), picnic pavilion, porches, access to bathrooms, showers, and fresh spring water.

NOTE there is CELL RECEPTION ONLY FOR AT&T AND SPRINT AT THE MAIN CABIN, AND NO INTERNET. You'll be given the main cabin land line after you book and you may use the phone. Depending on your service (usually this is Verizon), you may be able to send and receive texts from the top of one of the mountains.

Loafers Glory is a swell destination on beautiful acres in WV. The hosts Jeff and Teresa are sweet and extremely hospitable. When we arrived they had the cabin set up very nicely with anything we might need. Bedding, fresh water, and clean towels are provided, the cabin is solar powered so there is also some electricity. Jeff and Teresa are so great they even had a doggie treat for our pup Chaco! (AHHMAZING!!).

During our visit it was perfect weather for fishing or taking a hike up to their highest point on the farm.
Their grounds are wonderful to explore. We fished in their small pond and skipped rocks in their large pond. They have old farm homes and multiple hills with good views of the mountains. It's especially nice to go up to the highest point on the farm, and look out at the view. This cabin is a good place for artist or avid readers. I myself personally enjoyed reading on the porch of the cabin and listening to the sounds of birds.

Jeff and Teresa have a dog on site named Xena so this is a great place to bring a voice command trained pup to be off leash. I recommend having an afternoon talk on the back patio of the main cabin. We did so with Jeff & Teresa as well as other guest and had a delightful time. The patio view from the farm looking out is breath taking, you can see the history the farm holds.

My partners and I really enjoyed our time at this cabin and would love to return. After leaving the property make sure to check out the small town of Franklin WV!

Down below the main cabin there are still remnants of the original farm owned by a German family in the 1800'sThe cabin of Loafer's Glory. Up on a hill with a good view of a lot of the acres.Jaz's first time fishing and she caught a great sized bass!The view from the highest point of the farm is breath taking. It's a romantic place to have a sip of wine. Or even propose to your partner!

About Loafers Glory B&B July 2017

After a 7 hour Interstate drive, Loafer’s Glory B&B was just the tonic. Warmly greeted and oriented by hosts Teresa and Jeff Munn, we quickly embraced the sights, sounds, smells of their 137 acre field and woodland family homestead. A very warm afternoon brought a cooling gentle evening thundershower. If you like quiet, watch deer graze on rolling hillsides, and the opportunity to rediscover summer evenings in the mountains, we highly recommend you stay at Loafer’s Glory.

The cabin and surrounding property are magical. Use this as an opportunity to get rustic and back to the land. Comfy beds and solar powered electric are welcome amenities...but eat your meals outside on the picnic table, and sit out in one of the meadows with a bottle of wine. Once in a lifetime experience. Enjoy.

This place was unbelievably beautiful!!! It was everything we wanted and more!! We have already made plans and will soon make reservations to come back next year for longer!!! They are so very nice and the directions could not possibly have been more accurate. It was such a pleasure to meet them and I look forward to spending more time with them next year at this time!!! It’s an incredible place!!! And that doesn’t even explain the half of it!! The history they are working to preserve is another whole story!!! Can’t wait to go see more!!!

OMG! If you want peace and quiet and a great host this is it! Dark sky, wonderful views, and great sunsets are in store for you here. We only stayed 2 nights in the rustic cabin but are already planning a return visit for longer next year in the barn. Jeff and Teresa are absolutely wonderful hosts. You will not be disappointed. And if you care about history the farm is an amazing place to explore and Jeff and Teresa use the proceeds to restore and preserve the old Pitsenbarger farm. Wow!! Can't wait until 2019!
