Overview

About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)

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).

Lower level.

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 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.

About Lisa or Hans

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.

Lisa or Hans purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Lisa or Hans chose West Virginia

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Great family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything you could ask for and more. From the rustic charm to the view of the woods. We would we would love to visit again in the spring or fall.

Two cautions for you.

1. If traveling in the winter make sure your car is early snow ready. It snowed on us our 3rd day there and our rear wheel drive van didn't like the drive up to the main road.

2. The stairs from the first floor to the second floor are a little tricky for an older person.

Perfect get away in the middle of nowhere with all the conveniences you need!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this cabin. Very comfortable and modern, but with hard floors you didn't feel constantly anxious that you'd track dirt in. Three levels allows for everyone to spread out as needed. Kitchen was well appointed with utensils and cooking items. Nice walking areas in both directions from the cabin. We would stay here again.

Wonderful Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

The instructions to the cabin were very helpful as I knew there was no way my GPS would find the place. When we arrived the cabin was clean and absolutely charming! It even impressed the teenagers and they are a tough sell. The place was clean, well-stocked and cozy. My kids (despite being teens) loved the "cubbies" downstairs and spent most of their time down there. I especially liked having a washing machine and dryer. We want to return as soon as we can. Pipestem State Park is gorgeous and we made good use of the hiking trails and the indoor pool. I've recommended the place to several friends. This trip really made our spring break despite 4 inches of snow falling our last day there. Even that was beautiful!

Loved the Cardinal Cabin at Retreat at Pipestem!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this place,very clean, it has all the comforts yet it gives the retreat one needs with Nature around. Walking trail is awesome behind the cabin. Fire pit is very useful. Inside the cabin the owner kept everything any family needs with great book collection, utencils needed just like in home. We love to go back to the same cabin for our next vacation. I highly recommend this.
