Other Amenities

  • Mid Atlantic Mountain Wilderness where less than 1500 folks reside in 50 square miles...one road thru the county and the nearest traffic light is 45 minutes away and not really needed. The next one is another hour from there...this part of WV is stunning, high elevation coolness and wet year around. The Blackwater/Canaan Valley region is a naturalist hot spot due to the diversity of climates, forest types, and having a rain shadow on all four sides. Most of the area is either one of two WV State Parks, National Forest and Federal Wilderness, National Wildlife Refuge, State Wildlife Management Area, National Youth Science Foundation or the local Mountain Top Hunt Club. Four distinct seasons with a long winter usually filled with 140 inches of snow and a wet, long, cool spring leading into a thunderstorm breezy summer in the 70's. Autumn here is under sold as the local sugar maples and yellow birch in a back drop of red spruce, balsam fir, and hemlock is world class. Crazy weather, too!...moreless
