The cabin sits at the base of Hedges Mountain bordering the 23,000 acre Sleepy Creek State Wildlife Area. Just 1 1/2 to 2 hours from DC and Baltimore, this modern take on mountain cabin living is the perfect retreat for friends and families looking to find a place to get away and relax in the Appalachian Mountains of Eastern West Virginia. The property includes over an acre of forested property that backs up to the upslope of Hedges Mountain, featuring abundant wildlife, and gorgeous foliage.
The cabin sits in a prime location just minutes from Sleepy Creek Lake and the Potomac River, both great for boating and fishing. Cyclists will enjoy the wide open country roads, the famous C&O Towpath and Western Maryland Rail Trail accessible in nearby Hancock, MD. The cabin is 1-hour from skiing and snowboarding at Whitetail Resort.
Just 20 minutes away is historic Berkeley Springs, WV featuring natural hot spring baths frequented by George Washington. To the east 40 minutes is the quaint college town of Shepherdstown, WV. Both offer restaurants and shopping that are perfect day trips if you can pull yourself away from the natural beauty surrounding you. Martinsburg, WV is 20 minutes away, featuring the big box stores you might find useful, as well as rail access via Amtrak and MARC.
The cabin’s backyard is the Sleepy Creek State Wildlife Area, which contains excellent hiking, bird watching, and nature photography opportunities. Take a short 40-minute walk from the cabin to reach the top of Hedges Mountain – our dog’s favorite hike.
If golf is your passion, you’re right in the middle of The Woods Resort, offering 18 holes of golf with a stellar view of the mountains. If a massage is more your thing, visit the full service spa just a 3-minute drive away.
