Pipestem cabin description
The Retreat at Pipestem is a 10 acre secluded property, directly adjacent to Pipestem State Park and Resort. It offers the quietness and solitude of being deep in the woods, away from it all, and yet has all the activities the beautiful State Park has to offer close at hand. Some, such as swimming, fishing, hiking, golf and dining are only 10 to 15 minutes away by foot.
The cabin was built in 2007. It is open and spacious, yet cozy. A wrap around porch offers beautifully wooded views of sunrise and sunset.
The main level consists of a dining area and full kitchen, a powder room and comfortable living area. Sliding glass doors open to the back deck.
Upstairs is a master bedroom with separate bath (toilet - shower - sink) and two other bedrooms which share a bath. (shower, sink and toilet).
There is one bedroom here, with two twin beds, built into the wal. While perfectly suitable for adults, it's specially children who love this room. There is no bathroom on this level.
Our own website gopipestem.com will give a more complete picture of what we have to offer, including online booking and secure payments and floorplans.
The area around Pipestem offers extensive activities, many at walking distance from the Retreat and others within a short drive.

I would have loved to try this home, we have family that live nearby and wanted to stay at the home for one night. The house was available for the whole weekend so most likely wouldnt be rented with a one day notice to anyone else for the full weekend. In any case, my family would only be staying in the house to sleep and it was mentioned b/c I have children that they wouldnt allow a one night stay - too expensive/risky for clean up after I was willing to pay an additional surcharge for the cleaning. This offends me greatly as while I think that I am a mother who take up for my children, my children are very well behaved and eat in 5 star new york city restaurants with no problem. We both missed out on this one, the owner would have been pleasantly surprised that the house was never even occupied and my family and my girls would have had a nice stay there.

Owner response: This is a comment on our policies, not on the house as we never rented to this family. The two night minimum rental is for a very good reason as every home owner knows there is a big risk of the house being trashed by a party crowd with one night rentals specially at this time of the year. Specially a short notice rental for next day, raises a big red flag. I'm sorry we offended her, but we will stick to this policy. Hans
We stayed here last year. The home was very nice and very clean. We stayed 2 nights and wish it would have been longer! The soaker tub upstairs was heaven! Hope to visit again soon!

I have stayed in both of the cabins offered here at the Retreat at Pipestem and I can assure you the photo's and description here do not do justice! The facilities at the cabin are much better than anyone would expect and the resort area is fantastic. When traveling to that area, I would not consider staying anywhere else!

Our Family got together for a early Thanksgiving Celebration at Pipestem. Our adult children drove from NY and we arrived from Georgia. The cabin was exactly as descriped clean and neat and everything in working order. We had a wonderful time and would love to return for another visit.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Being a teacher in a big city, I always longed to go back to West Virginia. Having two cats, always made it difficult to find a good place to stay and the Cardinal is just ideal to bring them. As my husband works on ships and is away from home for months at a time, I wanted a place where I could be close to my mother who still lives in West Virginia and also feel safe.
Why the Owner Chose Pipestem:
Having grown up in West Virginia, I always wanted a vacation house in Southern West Virginia. When we found The Retreat at Pipestem we simply fell in love with the place. It's so beautiful and quiet and yet so close by the State Park that we could not resist. There were two log homes at that time and the Cardinal was never finished. We found a local builder who did a beautiful job finishing the log home and now having this house available, we decided that sharing this incredible experience was the natural thing to do.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The saying that for real estate, the three most important things are location, location and location is certainly true for the Cardinal. Within a mile of the Lodge of Pipestem State Park with all the activities going with it. Being away from the main roads but still within of few miles of them, make this place a true gem amongst vacation homes.
