About Dan and Barbara Turnage

I am retired Custom home builder from Chesapeake Va. but more importantly a lover of the 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 enjoying 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 Mountains of WV!

We love to go skiing, hiking, biking, Kayaking and hunting. However; we also just love to relax and take in the amazing sunsets between the mountains or 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. It is positioned so you can enjoy the sunrise and the sunset!

We also chose this location because it is close to two ski resorts, Canaan Valley State park, lots of hiking trails, mountain biking, horseback riding, golfing, rock climbing, and hunting!

The real beauty here is that you are surrounded by nature. Relax and breath in the fresh mountain air!

This is a vacation spot where you really can relax and get refreshed before heading back to work.

The sunsets 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:)

Thanks, Dan and Barbara, for another great weekend at your Sunset Cabin!

We had rainy weather almost the whole time we were there, but the cabin is still great and has everything you need. It has just about all the cookware and dishware you could need, including glass wine glasses for inside and plastic wine glasses for outside. We enjoyed the hot tub, the clever decorations, the covered porch area with outdoor blankets to enjoy the crisp fresh air and everything else about this cabin. And we noticed and enjoyed the new supply of movies!

Thanks, and we can't wait to be back!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't ask for a better weekend away from home. Sunset Cabin was an amazing get away. The scenery, peacefulness, wild life, sunsets, star gazing, and relaxation was the best experience we have had. The cabin was equipped with everything we needed and more. The fire pit in the yard to the hot tub on the deck to the furniture on the front porch to watch the sunset and enjoy the view, this is all we needed for the weekend. Dan and Barb were the best! They truly make this a home away from home and one my wife and I did not want to leave. Dan and Barb gave us ideas on what there is to do, where to go, and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. My wife and I couldn't have asked for a more relaxing and enjoyable weekend. We are definitely looking forward to our next trip to Sunset Cabin!

should rename cabin to heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough great things about this cabin and the owners. The cabin is equipped with everything you could possibly need and we found that we over packed because we didn't think they would have this or that. The place was super clean and well taken care of. The owners showed us around and even had some fresh veggies from their veggie garden on site that we made into a wonderful home made pizza. The owners are wonderful people who couldn't have been any nicer. The views from this cabin were spectacular. The sunsets were one of a kind, and the stars at night were just unbelievable. The hot tub was amazing after a long day of hiking around the black water falls. We even just took a hike down the stone drive to the "main road" and back up one day on our trip which turned into quite the walk back up. The drive up to the cabin is a stone drive and can be steep. I can see why in the winter time they recommend 4 wheel drive. I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a peaceful time away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. Don't pass this place up you will regret it. Thank you to the owners for letting us stay here and we will be back and next time for even longer.

Gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has everything you need and feels like home with a beautiful view of the mountains and night sky. I've never seen so many stars! The hospitality is wonderful. The master bed is very comfortable, the hot tub on the deck has a beautiful view. Great hiking in the area, just such a relaxing place. I would definitely come back to this cabin and highly recommend this as a rental if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful place to visit.

My wife and I spent a few days in this cabin celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The place was remarkable, from the breathtaking sunsets to the deer walking across the lawn to sitting under the stars in the hot tub. The cabin was great, I brought items that I thought that I needed but they were already in the cabin. We were close enough to drive to Dolly sods, Canaan valley and Blackwater falls. We will definitely bring our family back. It is truly a sight that everyone needs to see in there lifetime, this is truly Gods country!!!

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

3rd time back to this mountain, so this place has special meaning for me. The views are amazing, no mosquitos, no allergies, cool breezes, beautiful skies and star gazing, making campfires outside, lighting bugs lighting up the trees, so quiet and peaceful! You feel like you're entering a different world as soon as you drive around the bend. And the sunsets are absolutely breathtaking. Seriously! Awesome hot tub, and cooking meals was a cinch. I just like sipping my coffee on the deck or the porch.

Oh! And there are 2 outside dining tables so you can view either the sunset or sunrise or the moon rise when it is full!!!!

We happened to be there for the full moon it was amazing!

VERY clean! There wasn't even any dust outside!

Have to go back, so much more to do!

Owner's Response: We could not agree more with our guests comments! That is why we moved here. Well actually, we originally moved here for the "snow activities" in winter but stayed because of the awesome summers and gorgeous falls!! We are so happy our guests love it here too! We look forward to having them back again:)
