TV receives local channels. If you wish to watch a movie, please feel free to choose from our DVD library. The washer and dryer are located on the lower level.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We live in a metropolican area and retreat to our country home to escaped the the hassle and bustle of city life. As we crest the mountain ridges on the way, our worries and cares seem to disappear and a deep sense of relaxation floods over us. As a former military family we kid each other by saying, we keep the Civil War alive. One of us grew up on a northern farm and the other in a southern city. It just goes to show, opposites do attract. We have two grown sons, dubbed - the sons of thunder. We have traveled much and still seek to discover and try something knew, which we continue to find in WV.

Why the Owner Chose Baker, WV, USA:
One day while looking at property in WV we came across an estate auction sign at a gas station. After meeting with the autioneer, walking the property line and looking over the various out buildings, we fell in love with the possibilities this property held. A few weeks later we stood on the steps of the county court house and bid on the property. To our delight, we won. A year later we broke ground to build the house and this past year refurbished the largest shed. Some day we hope to retire in WV. Until then, we invite you to enjoy our home.
