About Gordon A Josey

As the owner and director of Camp Twin Creeks I enjoy the Schoolhouse each summer. I look forward to being able to share this amazing home in this truly magical corner of West Virginia with you while I'm not there.

Gordon A Josey purchased this house in 2005

Why Gordon A Josey chose West Virginia

West Virginia offers so much, I love the people, the fresh air of the countryside, the mountains, the creeks and being so close to Snowshoe mountain.

What makes this house unique

Waking up to the sound of the babbling creek will truly make you feel happy and fortunate to be here.

The Schoolhouse

Great space, private but close to everything

  • 4 of 5

5 kids, 5 adults & enough room for everyone! House is spacious & well situated with everything you need to have a great get away. Definitely follow the instructions given by check-in instructions as the map location takes you to the wrong place.

Fantastic long weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a wonderful time at the Schoolhouse. There were three families with a total of six active little boys, and we all had a ball. There was plenty of room to run around for the kids, the grounds were perfect for long walks and explorations, and the creeks are stocked with trout so there was fun fishing for all. The Schoolhouse itself was beautiful, very comfortable for our party of 12 to relax and spread out. We ate dinners on the screened-in porch, and enjoyed conversation, playing guitar, and singing around the firepit. Even the drive into the area was beautiful, through rolling hills and mountains, with little peeks of creeks and rivers around every turn in the road. We hope to come and stay again!

Long Valentine's Day weekend with our children and spouses

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house, with huge great room, huge master suite. We were here 4 nights, joined by both adult children and their spouses for part of that. Only disappointment was not enough snow for XC skiing, but Mary at Elk River Ski Center was delightful, refunded money we spent renting skis. We biked on the nearby Greenbrier River Trail; loved exploring the grounds of the adjacent Twin Creeks camp. Beds were comfy, the place was clean, there is local maintenance man who came right over to silence a beeping smoke alarm, plenty of dishes and pots/pans. No complaints.
