My husband and I grew up Detroit, Michigan and the Detroit River, moved to Madison, Indiana and live 4 blocks from the Ohio River. We purchased a retreat home in Glen Ferris, West Virginia to enjoy the river and mountain views. We thoroughly enjoy boating, whitewater rafting and fishing. This allowed us to have a place to retreat, dine out, hike, boat, enjoy nature and the mountains not too far from home. We love our New River Retreat home in Glen Ferris.
Glen Ferris, West Virginia is just 45 minutes from Charleston where there are many fine restaurants, antique stores and a downtown shopping malls. Typically we will spend a day in Charleston having fun, a day or two whitewater rafting in Fayetteville, a day in Lewisburg and White Sufphur Springs, a day boating and swiming at New River Gorge Recreation/Baach Area. We havetried the new New River Treetops Canopy Tour that combines bird watching, tree id, enviromental awareness and adrenaline rush on the sky bridges and rappel zip lines.
