About Dan and Barbara Turnage

I am retired Custom home builder from Chesapeake Va. but more importantly a lover of mountains and an out door enthusiast!

My wife and I decided the mountains of West Virginia because of our love for nature!

We moved here in 2008 and have been enjoying it ever since!

I spent over 30 plus years building custom dream homes for my clients in the Tidewater area of Va.

We are now at the season in our life where we want to experience our dreams come to pass. Our dream is to simply enjoy the beautiful mountains of WV and share it with as many people as we can!

We spend our time sharing our love for God's creation with family, friends and guests here in the Canaan valley area of WV!

We like to ski (both down hill and x-country), hike, bike, Kayak and go hunting. However; we also just love to relax and take in the amazing sunsets between the mountains in addition to stargaze!

On our many hikes to waterfalls and streams our beagle, Bluebell, comes along too. She even treads through the snow along side us in the winter when we go x-country skiing or snow shoeing!

Our days are filled entertaining family and friends who have taken time off from their busy lives to visit.

We cherish the time we are able spend with them by showing off wild, wonderful WV!

Why Dan and Barbara Turnage chose West Virginia

We chose to have a cozy cabin here because of the amazing views of the mountains and tranquil setting.

"Sunset Cabin" is positioned so you can enjoy both the sunrise and the sunset!

The location is also close to two ski resorts; Canaan Valley and Timberline. Additionally, it is close to Canaan Valley State park and Blackwater falls state park. These parks offer great hiking trails.

Additionally the area offers mountain biking, horseback riding, golfing, rock climbing, or hunting!

However; "Sunset Cabin" is also a perfect place to experience the sounds of nature in a quiet and relaxing atmosphere.

"Sunset Cabin" is where deep breaths of fresh mountain air are taken in and where many have received the answers to the "why's" and "purpose" of their lives:)..always answering back with praise and gratitude!

"Sunset Cabin" is a vacation spot to truly relax in order to be refreshed before heading back to work.

We believe watching the sunset and star gazing rejuvenates the soul by giving us strength, peace and balance for the road ahead.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin boasts of its views of the mountains and a peaceful setting.

Most of the activities such as skiing both downhill and x-country are approx. 7-10 miles away.

Horseback riding and hiking trails close as well.

We encourage people to relax around the real wood burning fireplace inside the cabin or outside by the campfire.

Star gazing is prime here in this part of WV! This is due to the fact it has been claimed to be one of the "darkest spots" on the east coast!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We certainly appreciate the comments left by our guests and would like to add that we have had in the past people on motorcycles visit us and had no problems, however the road is dirt and gravel and there is one hairpin turn, we like to call it, at the top of "Cherry Ridge".

We are not bikers but would also like to caution people with bikes of the nature of our roads.

This beautiful couple did have difficulty, and we apologized for their experience on our road and offered them a free night stay if they chose to come back.

Last night however we had eight bikers arrive at a large cabin here in "Cherry Ridge". We asked them this morning how the road was with bikes. They said "You have to be careful but it was fine." So with that being said please travel here on bikes at your own risk.

Four wheel drive is not necessary in the summer:)

Great Early Spring Week Away

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Cabin was perfect for a 4-night trip with my wife, our teen daughter and her friend. The Cabin is cozy and very clean. We didn't want for anything. Dan & Barbara answered all of our pre-trip questions and were very helpful once were there with maps, suggestions and tips. We got all of our provisions in Davis on the way to the cabin. We loved the hot tub after our hikes in Dolly Sods and used both the fire pit and the fireplace. We'll be back.

So much more than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a true escape! We spent a romantic weekend here in the early spring. We went into Davis, Thomas and Blackwater Falls to visit art galleries, enjoy craft breweries, take in two Purple Fiddle concerts, and get some hiking in! The cabin itself is so well cared for and just the right size for the two of us. (But, the place can easily accommodate a small family or two couples.) The fireplace was set up for our first fire and all the wood and kindling you need is well stocked. The hot tub was excellent and the kitchen has everything you need. The views are just outstanding! We are hoping to return in the fall once the leaves start changing. Barbara and Dan were gracious hosts and were only phone call away if we needed something.

I would highly recommend Sunset Cabin!!! We will return for sure!

Perfect Cabin for a get away!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is amazing. Very cozy!! We stayed 3 days and never turned the TV on.

Having a fire in the fireplace, watching the deer and wild turkey grazing next to the cabin was plenty of entertainment. Sitting on the deck and enjoying the peace and quiet was very relaxing!

I absolutely enjoyed my stay. Dan and Barbara are so kind. They made us feel like home. I know for sure that I am coming there again. I had such a wonderful time. I couldn't ask for a better customer service and experience. I highly recommend this place.

Flawless Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin would meet just about anyone's needs and vacation interests. From the beginning, Dan and Barb, the cabin's owners, were gracious and welcoming. They gave us a "tour" of the amenities and then so respectfully left us with privacy. Dan even prepared the fireplace - all we had to do was light the paper! The house was also incredibly well stocked and every room of the house had everything I would have at home. All we needed was our food and had absolutely everything else. For those who love the outdoors, it was perfect. Hiking out the front door or a short drive. Warmer weather would allow for stream walking, tubing and longer hikes. The cabin is on lots of land to bring outdoor games for families. Indoor and outdoor fire places and a large hot tub add lots of romance if that's what you are looking for also. I can say this place is perfect! We will absolutely look to return.

Owner's Response: We do our best to make sure our guests are comfortable and have everything they need for a relaxing, stress-free week-end! Our mountains here in WV are some of the prettiest in the country and we sure do love it when our guests see the beauty of it and enjoy the excitement of seeing wild life right from the front porch! Taking time to slow down to breathe in the fresh mountain air or relax by the fire is what our cabin is all about...experiencing a peaceful atmosphere to fill your soul with gratitude.
