'Cabin in the Woods' is the ideal home base for your next visit to wild and wonderful West Virginia. You'll feel as though you've entered a whole different world upon your arrival at the property, which is located just 2 hours and 15 minutes from the capital beltway.
Your favorite relaxing spot will quickly become the 12-by-45-foot deck, boasting fantastic views of the treetops, mountains, and sunset, plus glimpses of the lake once the leaves fall. Sit back in one of the deck's reclining chairs and enjoy the sunshine during the day and the twinkling stars in the night sky.
A private hot tub on the deck completes the picture, where you can soak your cares away and admire the spectacular wooded scenery. Numerous jets propel the soothing waters, as bright multicolored lights, 2 waterfalls, and a volcano jet add to the excitement. The deck also has a gas grill for barbequing burgers, fish or veggies.
Attached to the deck is a screened-in porch with a patio couch and comfortable chairs. The screened porch is perfect for reading, relaxing, talking, and enjoying the fall foliage.
All the amenities you want in your ultimate home-away-from-home are here, including central air conditioning and heat, high-speed wireless internet access, and a lovely stone propane fireplace. After preparing a tasty meal in the fully equipped kitchen, gather with your companions in the massive dining room, surrounded by windows on 3 sides with glorious wooded views.
The oak table is perfect for playing games with your family members! Take your pick from the many board games provided in the dining room cabinet, including Scrabble, Scattergories, Life, Jenga, Settlers of Catan, Candyland, Chutes and Ladders, as well as playing cards, dice, and ping pong paddles and balls.
The welcoming master bedroom offers a queen bed with cedar cabinets and a private door leading out to the hot tub. The second bedroom is a snug bunk room with a bunk bed for 2, complete with storage drawers under the bunk.
Additional sleeping arrangements can be found in the 2 carpeted loft spaces. These are true lofts, and though kids can stand up in them, most adults cannot, yet they are very comfortable to sleep and sit in. Loft 1 is well suited for adults or children, featuring a queen futon on the floor, 2 toddler beds, and a safety gate at the top of the stairs with sturdy rails for peace of mind.
Loft 2 is a 12-by-12-foot loft over the dining area, offering 2 single beds and enough room to sleep 2 extra guests in sleeping bags. Accessible via sturdy pull-down ladder, the second loft is especially fun for teenagers but not suitable for small children, as the opening for the ladder does not close.
'Cabin in the Woods' sits on 6 acres of forest in an unspoiled environment, making it an ideal accommodation choice for nature enthusiasts, especially for those visiting during the fall when the leaves turn brilliant hues of yellow, orange, and red. Climb up the mountain through the Hardwood Forest of tower oaks, black walnuts, red and white maples, wildflowers and ferns. There are nesting pairs of bald eagles nearby, and in the spring and summer, they will sometimes soar for 20 minutes right over the property.
Lake Ferndale is stocked with fish, including smallmouth bass, and is a great place to do a little fishing. Additionally, Lake Ferndale is a perfect spot to bring your kayak or canoe for some easy paddling. There's a place to launch your boat, and since only electric motors are allowed, everything stays quiet and still! Those seeking more adventurous waters should head 2 miles over to the South Branch of the Potomac River, a popular destination for boating, fishing or tubing.
In addition to the Potomac River, 'Cabin in the Woods' is close to numerous State and National Parks, the historic Potomac Eagle Scenic Railroad, and many important historical sites. Hampshire County is the oldest county in West Virginia and the oldest incorporated town, Romney, is the county seat. Originally part of Lord Fairfax's Northern Neck Proprietary, the land here was first settled around 1750. Hampshire County and its surrounding area have a vast, rich heritage steeped in Colonial, Revolutionary, and Civil War history. Stop by the Civil War Museum in nearby Romney to view its fascinating collection of historic artifacts and weapons!
No matter what season you plan to visit West Virginia, you certainly won't have a shortage of exciting things to see and do. Whether you choose to spend the majority of your time on the beach, swimming in the lake, fishing, reading a book in the screened porch, or just relaxing on the deck while observing the night stars, this delightful Lake Ferndale vacation rental cabin will not disappoint.
