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:)

A hidden gem in the mountains of WV

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't be happier with our stay! Very inviting cabin with breath taking sunset views just miles away from plenty of outdoor activities. Dan & Barb are truly great people and you can see their passion in their cabin. We will be back in the fall to see the beautiful fall foliage!

Another fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our second trip to the cabin was just as wonderful as the first one! After backpacking at Dolly Sods (an amazing place, as well!), it was so nice to relax at the cabin. I could have sat on the front porch reading all day and evening; the views are breathtaking! We enjoyed the fire pit and the hot tub, the sunsets and star-gazing, and deer-watching. Dan and Barbara are wonderful hosts who make sure your every need is met! Thank you for another incredible getaway!

Perfect relaxing getaway with great views!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing cabin! We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay at Sunset Cabin in July. Dan and Barbara are fantastic hosts and the cabin was equipped with everything that we needed. After days of exploring the great WV outdoors, we cooked out, had outdoor fires and relaxed in the hot tub (our son's favorite). Out of all of our VRBO experiences, this one was the best by far due to the hospitality, location, and cabin condition/amenities!

Perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I surprised my fiancé with a weekend away to this cabin to get him away from the stresses of our every day life! We loved the fact that the owners met us there and showed us around and gave us suggestions of where to go! The cabin itself was so romantic and felt so much like home! We were thankful enough to get beautiful weather the whole weekend so we got some absolutely beautiful sunsets! We're already talking about coming back to the cabin with some family members towards the end of summer! We can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: One of our major goals in having a "romantic get away cabin" here in the mountains of WV is to hear couples express... they left rested, stress free and enjoyed the gorgeous sunsets and beautiful WV mountain range! We are so grateful to be able to share our cozy cabin with others!

Sunset Cabin was the Best

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Cabin was even more charming in real life than in the photos. Dan and Barb are the sweetest most accommodating people you will ever meet. The cabin was beyond clean, the hot tub was amazing and the view is the most beautiful view I have ever seen. I visited my friends place that she had rented off of this site and it was so dirty I did not even want to sit on the furniture!!! If you are looking for 5 star quality at a reasonable price with everything that you need provided this is the place.
