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 sunsets! We additionally are in love with being able to hear the sounds of nature, view wildlife and just enjoy the fresh air! "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. the area also 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!

Beautiful retreat, fabulous host!
Sunset cabin is an adorable wood cabin atop a mountain, with some of the most beautiful views I’ve ever seen. Lots of activities, great hiking, fishing etc. cabin is stocked with everything you could ever need and if they don’t have it, Dan will make sure you get it. He was by far the most charming and thoughtful host I’ve had the chance to meet. You will not be disappointed . Fresh eggs every morning, beautiful sunrises/ sunsets, a great hot tub to relax under the stars after a full day of hiking.... I can’t express what a wonderful time we had. We will definitely be back!
Returned for the 3rd time in five years
My wife and I returned to unwind and I spent more time watching the fireplace than satellite tv. Good thing Dan stocked plenty of wood. Owners have the perfect blend of being available but respecting your privacy. The cabin is an easy drive out the H Corridor from Northern VA/Shenandoah Valley. Plenty of food options nearby though we mostly cooked at the cabin. We were able to instantly relax when we arrived and the only disappointment was having to leave. Great atmosphere and a wonderful mix of the modern and the rustic. Would
Love to return.
There are only positive things to say about our stay at "Sunset Cabin". The drive to the cabin is so calming and the country air is so refreshing. Our first impression of the cabin was even more beautiful then the pictures. And the view there are just NO words, pictures don't do it justice. We were greeted by Dan and his hospitality and kindness was very genuine. He was very approachable with any questions. We didn't' get the chance to meet Barbara, hopefully next time! The cabin was stocked with everything you could need and felt just like home. I highly recommend watching the sunset from the front porch it was breathtaking. My husband and I had never experienced such peace and quiet it was soo relaxing. And our other first was the amount of stars in the sky at night, I was in disbelief. We got to experience some of Dolly Sods, Blackwater Falls (it's a must), and we ate at Hellbender Burrito( delicious). The drive from Baltimore was scenic, beautiful and relaxing. We really wanted to find a place not too far from home that we could re-charge and enjoy time together, well we found it!!
Dan and Barbara thank you so much for sharing this slice of paradise with us. We hope to return very soon and enjoy your amazing cabin and views.
SO WONDERFUL TO HEAR THAT COUPLES ARE GETTING THE REFRESHING WE ALL NEED AT TIMES AND ABLE TO TAKE IN THE BEAUTY OF OUR AREA!
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!
Wonderful to hear this couple enjoyed the views ! That is why we love sunset cabin😊�
A breath of fresh air
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
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!
In the winter we require our guests to have either 4 wheel drive or snow chains for their vehicles...thank you!
