About Dan and Barbara Turnage

I am retired Custom home builder from Chesapeake Va. but more importantly a lover of mountains and an out door enthusiast!

My wife and I decided the mountains of West Virginia because of our love for nature!

We moved here in 2008 and have been enjoying it ever since!

I spent over 30 plus years building custom dream homes for my clients in the Tidewater area of Va.

We are now at the season in our life where we want to experience our dreams come to pass. Our dream is to simply enjoy the beautiful mountains of WV and share it with as many people as we can!

We spend our time sharing our love for God's creation with family, friends and guests here in the Canaan valley area of WV!

We like to ski (both down hill and x-country), hike, bike, Kayak and go hunting. However; we also just love to relax and take in the amazing sunsets between the mountains in addition to stargaze!

On our many hikes to waterfalls and streams our beagle, Bluebell, comes along too. She even treads through the snow along side us in the winter when we go x-country skiing or snow shoeing!

Our days are filled entertaining family and friends who have taken time off from their busy lives to visit.

We cherish the time we are able spend with them by showing off wild, wonderful WV!

Why Dan and Barbara Turnage chose Dryfork

We chose to have a cozy cabin here because of the amazing views of the mountains and tranquil setting.

"Sunset Cabin" is positioned so you can enjoy both the sunrise and the sunset!

The location is also close to two ski resorts; Canaan Valley and Timberline. Additionally, it is close to Canaan Valley State park and Blackwater falls state park. These parks offer great hiking trails.

Additionally the area offers mountain biking, horseback riding, golfing, rock climbing, or hunting!

However; "Sunset Cabin" is also a perfect place to experience the sounds of nature in a quiet and relaxing atmosphere.

"Sunset Cabin" is where deep breaths of fresh mountain air are taken in and where many have received the answers to the "why's" and "purpose" of their lives:)..always answering back with praise and gratitude!

"Sunset Cabin" is a vacation spot to truly relax in order to be refreshed before heading back to work.

We believe watching the sunset and star gazing rejuvenates the soul by giving us strength, peace and balance for the road ahead.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin boasts of its views of the mountains and a peaceful setting.

Most of the activities such as skiing both downhill and x-country are approx. 7-10 miles away.

Horseback riding and hiking trails close as well.

We encourage people to relax around the real wood burning fireplace inside the cabin or outside by the campfire.

Star gazing is prime here in this part of WV! This is due to the fact it has been claimed to be one of the "darkest spots" on the east coast!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We certainly appreciate the comments left by our guests and would like to add that we have had in the past people on motorcycles visit us and had no problems, however the road is dirt and gravel and there is one hairpin turn, we like to call it, at the top of "Cherry Ridge".

We are not bikers but would also like to caution people with bikes of the nature of our roads.

This beautiful couple did have difficulty, and we apologized for their experience on our road and offered them a free night stay if they chose to come back.

Last night however we had eight bikers arrive at a large cabin here in "Cherry Ridge". We asked them this morning how the road was with bikes. They said "You have to be careful but it was fine." So with that being said please travel here on bikes at your own risk.

Four wheel drive is not necessary in the summer:)

Mountain perfection

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cabin was a perfect retreat! The star gazing in the hot tub after hikes out to the beautiful falls nearby was inspired! Stunning views from every window and from every corner of the outside deck. Had one night where it was cool enough to have a fire at night and that was lovely! Perfect cabin get away. Can’t wait to return!

A breath of fresh air

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a wonderful weekend at Barbara and Dan's "Sunset Cabin". Without a doubt, this was the most relaxing and enjoyable weekend we have experienced in our 30 years of vacationing. I cannot speak highly enough of Dan's warm personality and his desire and willingness to make sure we were comfortable and well taken care of. In the short time we had together, Dan became an instant friend; he is trustworthy and honest, a man of integrity and always ready to share entertaining and humorous recollections from the past. If there is anything you need to know about the surrounding area, with all that it has to offer, just ask Dan and he'll serve up a quick answer. In regard to the accommodations, the cabin was simply perfect - it was clean, well equipped and adorned inside with charming historic decorations that complimented the rustic built log cabin. The wood burning stone fireplace is gorgeous and adds an authentic warming touch to the already romantic atmosphere......and Dan keeps the fire box stocked with an ample supply of seasoned firewood. All modern conveniences are there and in fine working order; nothing is left out, including satellite TV in both the living area and master bedroom. The views are stunning as you walk around the outside of the cabin. The well maintained yard is expansive and open to the views. The wrap around deck offers a solid platform to view the scenery from every side of the house and supports a wonderful hot tub on the rear of the house, just outside of the master bedroom. All in all, this is a stress relieving retreat that will always tug at us to come back to for more.....and soon enough, we will do just that. Thanks again Dan - you're a wonderful host and provide awesome accommodations! We look forward to meeting Barbara and seeing you again soon. P&S

Spring Break Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at Sunset Cabin was the perfect getaway!! We had two adults and two young children (ages 6 and 4). The owners were super sweet and the place was clean and welcoming. It was equipped with everything you would need and more; the setting was private and quiet, and the mountain views were simply breathtaking. This cabin is ideal and highly recommended. We look forward to our next visit!

So thoughtful...

  • 5 of 5

The owners put a lot of forethought into what a guest may need or want. The cabin was impeccably clean. Every drawer or cabinet you would open would have anything you would need for your stay. Even the highest rated hotels can’t offer that! It is so peaceful here. The sunrises and sunsets are amazing and the stars at night are breathtaking. A true getaway!
