Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
A happy, humble little cottage on a one-lane road surrounded by woods, near WV's capitol city. It's your fun granny's house filled with local art and books, a quiet retreat, with old-timey porches and decks for relaxing. Built c. 1900, it's unpretentious, yet to be finished in some details, but comfortably functional. To reach it, you drive winding mountain roads. Seven minutes, 2.3 miles from town. Dogs stay for an additional fee. See dog policy under Booking, Additional House Rules.

The space
In West Virginia, your camp is your go-to place where you kick off your shoes and let down your hair, where you can get comfortable and don’t have to think about chores. Usually, you see nature all around, from the back porch AND the front porch. That’s how we define a camp. Camp K is informal, offering a library of classic books and decorated with local art. Beds are comfortable, kitchen is equipped with basics such as oil, salt/pepper, common spices, coffee and tea. All hardwood floors reduce allergens. There's a shower AND a tub--yay! Dine inside or outside on a deck. It's a building of its era--relatively narrow doorways and halls, and a step up to get into the bathroom. Situated on a hillside, thus there are stairs to climb to reach entrances. It is not wheelchair-accessible.

Guest access
Guests have access to all of the residential area of Camp Katherine--four decks and a porch, two bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, and living room. One deck is free of furnishings, making it great for a yoga mat or an easel.

Other things to note
Heads up, all ye who are not accustomed to winding mountain roads: Camp Katherine is less than three mostly vertical miles from downtown Charleston. Those vertical miles mean you will be driving on narrow, winding roads. Stay on your side of the road and you'll be fine! Prepare for a winding, twisting ride up a hill, then a final swoop down the backside of the hill you just climbed. 100% survival rate so far.

Other than Camp Katherine, there are only three occupied houses in the neighborhood, with folks close enough to help if you need it, but far enough away for privacy. The one-lane road is closed just below our houses. You can still walk or bike the bottom half, but nature is reclaiming it quickly. More than half of the neighborhood is an unofficial wildlife sanctuary. Lots of birds and small critters, and our own herd of deer.

I’m a wife, mother of a Chicago musician and a San Francisco businesswoman, a singer of songs, maker of small paintings, and I like to take photographs. I think about writing a lot. I love old houses, old stuff, old books, some new books. I think I love movies. I love Little Richard and Jackie Wilson and Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles. I sometimes wish I could speak TV but I can’t, not convincingly. I have a radio habit. I’m a sorry Luddite.

During your stay
We live next door, in one of the last four circa 1900 cabins that remain of the original 40-house community that once thrived here. There are only three other occupied houses in the neighborhood, a stone's throw from each other, depending on your arm. We're available sometimes. Sometimes we aren't.
