Bring your family to a fun and relaxing retreat in the mountains of West Virginia. At Pyne Mountain Farm we serve as a Retreat Center and Vacation Rental.
We're located in the Southeast corner of West Virginia, close to the border with Virginia. Blacksburg, VA is a one hour drive away. We're also just minutes South of Lewisburg, WV, rated one of the top 100 small towns in the country for its art, theater, and culture.
There is so much to do at the estate. We have 500 acres, mountain views, streams with minnows and crayfish, stocked ponds, ATVs, trails, forest, and lots of animals: horses, dogs, cats, chipmunks, some times cows and more.
Near by there are caves, world class golf courses, mountain tops, lakes, a dam, a buffalo farm, an alpaca/lama farm (with ostriches), a farmer's market and much more.
Website: We have lots of information and pictures on our website. Go to google and search for Pyne Mountain Farm.
We stayed here for a few days with my inlaws, 3 kids and 3 dogs. We arrived at dusk and missed the entrance and ended up at the top of the mountain! One quick call (thank you David and AT&T) and we got directions (which ARE on the website -- just look more carefully than we did!). One horse greeted us as soon as we turned onto the property and from a distance we could see the lights on in the house. It was chilly when we arrived but the house heat was cranked and every room was very warm, we had to turn the heat down to sleep. The owners met us as soon as we arrived and helped us get situated -- quick and friendly but not invasive -- "holler if you need us" kind of greeting. Just right. Woke in the morning to a friendly dog and some cats mulling about the front door and they would come in and out -- not the least bit phased by our dogs. The kids really loved it -- hiking, fishing, hanging out with the horses and turkeys. Stargazing off the porch at night -- it was really nice. Not luxurious but it's not advertised as the Four Seasons. The kitchen is fine for cooking meals but we did head into town for lunch and there is a cute little downtown; then we stopped at Lost World caverns on the way out of town. We'll certainly visit again. The owners were building a treehouse when we were there and I'd love to see it finished!
Pyne Mountain Farm can sleep 11 folks (adults, teenagers and one eight year old). We were a little unprepared for the level of 'rustic' that the place provides. There are 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. However, both of the showers were not in the greatest repair. But, we were impressed that we never ran out of hot water. The sun porch is a little rickety and none of the furniture was all that comfortable. The beds are all double beds, tiny for a couple. I guess you could say we had to really love each other to sleep that close! That said, the place is clean. It is huge and we found that it was plenty big enough for all of us to chill out and do our thing. The animals outside were interesting. The folks are friendly and our family had a really good time hanging out together. I think we'd go back, but we'd bring our air mattresses ;)
We had a great ladies weekend there. There is plenty of room and we spent a lot of time on the sunporch. We liked the uniqueness of the house with the very old and the new. I would have liked to see the place a bit cleaner and maybe some newer towels. The owner was great to talk to and very helpful. I am looking forward to seeing his tree house that he is building on the property there.
Another GREAT vacation spent here! We stayed from April 30 - May 8 and loved every minute of it.No one was ready to leave. We saw a bear, many beautiful birds, deer, a snake, and lots of turtles. The children heard some howling off in the woods a couple evenings so one evening they stayed out after dark and did some howling themselves trying to get a reply (Probably drove David and Theresa crazy with all the kids noise that night although they were much to kind to tell us if they minded!).
We walked trails,rode 4-wheelers,collected a few fossils,went wading in the creek,visited the horses, played with the dogs, rode the zipline and built forts in the woods.
After dark we ate snacks, watched movies and used the computer/internet.
Thanks for everything, David and Theresa! We'll be back!
My siblings and their families come together every 2 years for the Thanksgiving holiday. My sister found this rustic cabin built in the 1800's on 500 acres of farm land with hourses in W. Virginia. We traveled from Michigan, Kentucky, South Carolina and Florida for this family vacation. The weather was beautiful, the view was awesome, and the house was big. You could smell the wood burning throughout the air. All the kids went exploring, visiting the chicken coop, petting the horses, and the farm dogs and cats. It was a perfect spot to spend family time without alot of distractions. But we weren't too far from civilization - we had Wi-fi, Internet, and cable. We played card and board games, cousins got to hang out, and we ate until our guts were about to bust. This is a rustic, no frills place to enjoy family and the outdoors. My kids didn't want to leave they were having so much fun. I highly recommend this place for a quiet relaxing getaway to spend time with the family.
My husband and I recently enjoyed a vacation with our family to Pyne Mountain Farm in West Virginia. The location added to a peaceful and tranquil stay. Our 3-year-old enjoyed running around the open 500 acres and was thrilled with the wildlife, which included horses, chickens, and ducks. The rest of our family enjoyed the walking trails and the fire pit, where they roasted marshmallows and made smores. We were very pleased with the game selection, as it enabled us to spend quality family time together. The house also offered extra tables and chairs so that we were able to play games in different rooms. We stayed in the cowgirl room which slept 4 comfortably and came with an extra space heater. All in all, we had a very enjoyable stay.
With sparse population and without a four-lane highway or traffic light, Monroe County, West Virginia, offers tourists a place to Get Real! This rural, agricultural community has retained and enhanced many of the characteristics of previous times. It is still possible to have an authentic and memorable experience in this scenic country county! We are conveniently located a few minutes drive South of Lewisburg, WV which was named as one of the top 100 small towns in the US for its verve and culture. The county is also home to many other attractions ranging from diverse wildlife to outstanding natural resources.
Other Activities: There are also Lamas, Ostriches, and Buffalo at nearby farms
