This sunlit room in our house has a large deck overlooking the Dry Fork River, Green Mountain and the Otter Creek Wilderness. It feels a little like a tree house. Enjoy a cozy getaway with a breathtaking view. The Otter Creek Trail is a 15 minute walk away and Red Run is even closer. Our property runs along the Dry Fork River with spectacular bedrock "beaches". Great base for outdoor adventures. You'll hear the river as you sleep.
Regardless of the time of year, the view is beautiful. We are at the base of Canaan Mountain. Green Mountain is visible across the river and you can pitch a rock in the river from the balcony with a gentle toss. Sunsets are different everyday and the interplay of light and water is magical.
This is a room at the far end of our house with tall windows to see the moon, river and trees. It has windows facing Green Mountain and the Dry Fork River and is located on the old railroad grade of the Dry Fork Railroad. There is a wrap-around deck. There is a tiny fridge, microwave and a coffee pot. There is a sofa bed that has a very comfortable 4" memory foam mattress topper.
You will have access to the room, the wraparound deck, and the bathroom. You are welcome to heat up things in our family kitchen which is downstairs and sometimes we are around to cook and share a meal.
There is an old railroad grade in front of our house where you can take walks and we are happy to point you in the direction of nice hikes. Walks around the property are encouraged. The river is nice for swimming, fishing and kayaking. We often have a campfire in the warmer months and you can join us there. We are pretty friendly folks!
Interaction with guests
We are often busy with work and property maintenance but enjoy conversation around the campfire or over coffee, wine or beer.
Other things to note
We have rustic facilities for toileting needs. Contact us if this gives you any pause and we'll explain.
There is no cell phone service where we live. There is a house phone available.
While we have wifi, we have limited bandwidth so you may not stream videos of any length while you are here and do not download large files of any sort. Also you may not play online games or do video or audio chat. Also, using your phone's wifi hotspot uses a lot of bandwidth, so please don't do that.
There are steps up to the room. This room is not handicapped accessible.
While the place is a great place for kids (we raised our two kids here and one of them has moved back with his wife to build a house!), it is right by the river and they will require close supervision. We love have kids around!

I am a nurse and a college professor at a small college in West Virginia and my husband is a photographer. We live in a beautiful setting along the Dry Fork River in Tucker County, WV. Canaan Valley State Park, Timberline Resort, Blackwater Falls State Park, and White Grass Cross Country Ski Center are all within 30-40 minute drive. In addition, opportunities for mountain biking, hiking and whitewater sports abound. We love to travel and have a home in the mountains of Veracruz, Mexico. We enjoy sharing stories over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine or around the campfire.
