The Retreat at Pipestem is a 10 acre secluded property, directly adjacent to Pipestem State Park and Resort. It offers the quietness and solitude of being deep in the woods, away from it all, and yet has all the activities the beautiful State Park has to offer close at hand. Some, such as swimming, fishing, hiking, golf and dining are only 10 to 15 minutes away by foot.
The cabin was built in 2007. It is open and spacious, yet cozy. A wrap around porch offers beautifully wooded views of sunrise and sunset.
The main level consists of a dining area and full kitchen, a powder room and comfortable living area. Sliding glass doors open to the back deck.
Upstairs is a master bedroom with separate bath (toilet - shower - sink) and two other bedrooms which share a bath. (shower, sink and toilet).
There is one bedroom here, with two twin beds, built into the wal. While perfectly suitable for adults, it's specially children who love this room. There is no bathroom on this level.
Our own website gopipestem.com will give a more complete picture of what we have to offer, including online booking and secure payments and floorplans.
The area around Pipestem offers extensive activities, many at walking distance from the Retreat and others within a short drive.

Being a teacher in a big city, I always longed to go back to West Virginia. Having two cats, always made it difficult to find a good place to stay and the Cardinal is just ideal to bring them.
As my husband works on ships and is away from home for months at a time, I wanted a place where I could be close to my mother who still lives in West Virginia and also feel safe.
Having grown up in West Virginia, I always wanted a vacation house in Southern West Virginia. When we found The Retreat at Pipestem we simply fell in love with the place. It's so beautiful and quiet and yet so close by the State Park that we could not resist. There were two log homes at that time and the Cardinal was never finished. We found a local builder who did a beautiful job finishing the log home and now having this house available, we decided that sharing this incredible experience was the natural thing to do.
The saying that for real estate, the three most important things are location, location and location is certainly true for the Cardinal. Within a mile of the Lodge of Pipestem State Park with all the activities going with it. Being away from the main roads but still within of few miles of them, make this place a true gem amongst vacation homes.
