The Cranberry Mountain Lodge is a tranquil, isolated retreat for outdoor enthusiasts in the mountains of West Virginia. Rent the Cranberry Mountain Lodge and get an entire Lodge and Mountain to yourself!
The Cranberry Mountain Lodge is one of the most unique lodging experiences in the U.S. Located at 4,000 feet elevation on top of Cranberry Mountain, the lodge adjoins nearly one million acres of national forest. The views off the deck are spectacular, exceeding 40 miles. You can hike, bike or cross country ski right out the front door to a vast trail system. The lodge is very spacious and isolated, with the nearest neighbor being 2.5 miles away. When you rent the lodge, you rent the entire seven-bedroom facility, so you get the privacy you deserve. Rates are based on the number of guests and length of stay.
The Cranberry Mountain Lodge is a bird-watcher's and nature-lover's paradise.

Beartown State Park is a natural area of 107 acres located on the eastern summit of Droop Mountain, seven miles southwest of Hillsboro, West Virginia. The land was purchased in 1970 with funds from the Nature Conservancy and a donation from Mrs. Edwin G. Polan, in memory of her son, Ronald Keith Neal, who lost his life in the Vietnam War. Development of the park has been minimal in order to preserve the natural attractions of the area. However, basic facilities are provided, and a boardwalk permits easy access. Interpretive signs along the boardwalk guide visitors and provide insights concerning the ecology of the area. The park is open daily from April to October. During the closed winter season foot travel to the boardwalk...MoreCollapse
Droop Mountain Battlefield State Park is located in the Greenbrier River Valley north of Lewisburg and is the site of West Virginia's last significant Civil War battle. On November 6, 1863, the federal army of Brigadier General William W. Averell, in his second attempt to disrupt the Virginia-Tennessee Railroad at Salem, Virginia, faced again the Confederate troops of Brigadier General John Echols. Throughout the morning, Echols' smaller confederate army held the high ground and blocked the highway with artillery, but in the afternoon was overwhelmed by the crushing advance of federal infantry on his left flank. Following the collapse of his lines, General Echols retreated south into Virginia with the remnants of his command....MoreCollapse

About the owner: I am a 4th generation West Virginian that wanted to build a remote Lodge near the National Forest.
Why the Owner Chose Hillsboro, WV, USA:
We love the 'cool' temperatures of the mountains. We wanted property with no neighbors. We found it. Nearest neighbor 2 miles away. We began building in 1990, 4 years later we opened. Over the years we have made several improvements; more solar panels, hydro electric , trout pond, etc.. Love the WV mountains and you will too.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Entirely Off the Grid; Solar, Hydro and Wind Power the Lodge. Adjacent to a vast National Forest & Trail System. Amazing stars at night. No bugs. Really. Sit on the deck without getting 'eaten alive' as visitors to other vacation destinations will tell you. Very unique lodging experience.
