We, who were high school sweethearts, have been married for many years. We have two married adult children and eight grandchildren.
We owned a construction company for over 30 years. Charles was the architect and supervised and participated in the construction of our mountain retreat.
The property was actually purchased in the late 1970's. As our senior years approached, we decided it was time to build on the site. The construction was focused on incorporating into every room of the house either the mesmerizing sounds and spectacular views of the small waterfalls or the stunning views of the majestic mountain ranges. It was especially challenging building Cliffside on the edge of a high cliff.
We offer our guests the opportunity to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and to enjoy nature's beauty, nature's adventure, nature's excitement. Enjoy the house, enjoy hiking down to the steep set of waterfalls, enjoy the mountain views, enjoy the land, but most of all 'find yourself' at IL Bella Vista, a great WV mountain getaway.
