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!

Another great stay at Sunset Cabin!
This was our second stay and we loved it just as much as the first! The cabin is always clean, the view never gets old and it is centrally located to Blackwater Falls, Seneca, Elkins, Spruce Knob, Thomas and Davis. Dan and Barb are great to work with and we appreciate the opportunity to stay at this rental.
My wife and I wanted to get away and relax on our 10 year anniversary. Staying at Sunset Cabin in Dryfork gave us that opportunity. The online description of the cabin and pictures were spot on. Dan met us when we checked in, showed us around the cabin, and gave us some ideas of what to do and where to eat. We ended up hiking, visiting some of the local towns, and relaxing at the cabin. We loved the peace and quiet at the cabin and watched the stars from the hot tub. Dan and Barbara definitely know how to run the cabin and what to provide for their guests. We will surely return and probably bring the kids.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The cabin is so cute, with lots of extra touches, and the views are amazing! We will definitely be returning!
5 Star Stay!
An exceptional property. All we were looking for and more! Dryfork and the surrounding area is beautiful and full of both relaxing and active things to do. Walking and hiking trails for all levels, horseback riding, great dining options, arts and music. We visited in the late spring but there looks to be plenty to do all year round. We ended our daysd watching the sunset and then the stars come out from the hot tub on the deck. The cabin was clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was available. The neighbors were so nice and very helpful. We would love to return for another stay at The Sunset Cabin!♡
We love it when our guests come and explore‼️We try hard to create an atmosphere where you can unwind and enjoy the beautiful mountains of WV!
Perfect in Every Way
We spent a week at the cabin for our honeymoon and everything was wonderful. The cabin is lovely, the view is exceptional and the amenities are amazing. This is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the quiet. We hiking up the mountain behind the cabin and wandered through the fields. It was an easy drive over to Dolly Sods, Canaan, Davis and Blackwater Falls.
Be aware that the road getting up to the cabin was a little steep so it was nice to have 4wd but a normal car could definitely get up there in most weather.
Perfect cabin and was very clean and accommodating. Hosts are excellent people and go out of their way to make sure you’re stay is perfect
In the winter we require our guests to have either 4 wheel drive or snow chains for their vehicles...thank you!
