West Virginia is famed for its spectacular mountains, and in fact, it’s also the third most forested state in the U.S. Therefore, it’s pretty spectacular during the fall, or really any month for that matter. Given all this natural beauty, you bet there is a ton of things to do and see, from hiking, biking, kayaking, and so on. We’ve gathered some absolutely stunning cabins to consider when retreating to this lovely state.
This may be classified as a Glamping cabin, but every single amenity needed to be perfectly comfortable is found inside. A small kitchen allows the preparation of simple meals and snacks, and there is a bathroom. The super comfy bed is adorned in cute plaid linens. Much of your time will likely be spent outdoors amongst the stunning mountains, or just down below at the fire pit or grill.
It’s hard to resist an A-frame cabin in the woods. Cedar shake siding defines this particular dwelling and gives it an initial cozy appeal. Upon entering, guests are met with a blend of both traditional and modern design. Being close to George Washington National Forest, an abundance of outdoor activities is at guest’s fingertips. A fire pit is in the back, and we all know that there’s not a much more perfect way to end a night than with ghost stories and s’mores.
Riverfront properties are hard to beat, and just hearing the gentle rushing of the water can put one in an instant relaxation mode. Sit on the small porch at this cute little cabin, and just take in the beauty of the water below. Inside has lodge-style aesthetics and an adorable tiny kitchen.
Well, views just do not get any better than the ones from this cabin. We would have a hard time not sipping coffee all day on that absolutely gorgeous porch. Inside is an open concept, with a wood-burning stove enhancing the overall warm ambient feel. As far as straightforward, picturesque cabins go, this one gets five stars.
Missing that deck upon arrival is going to be impossible – it is absolutely enormous and has the most inviting swing waiting to be lounged upon. While quite rugged from the outside, everything is really pulled together, and crisp, on the interior. With a perfect blend of natural materials, guests will feel incredibly welcomed.
This is a classic cabin retreat ideal for either summer or the winter – covered in snow, or surrounded by green pastures, it’s breathtaking. Inside is simply stunning. While being authentic and down to earth, there is something slightly luxurious. Grab a glass of wine, and soak in the outdoor hot tub, and definitely have a few meals at the table out there as well.
Kids will most likely love this cabin! Not only are there bunk beds in one of the rooms, but so much color has also been interwoven throughout the design. And the best part, a game room houses a foosball and ping-pong table! When not playing, they can lounge on the fun multi-colored couch.
Feeling like doing something over the top? This cabin absolutely justifies the price tag, as it is nothing short of fabulous. Chandeliers made of antlers, ultra-refined yet rustic furnishings, and the most spectacular outdoor space await those wanting a taste of something finer. A plunge spa, basically a deep small pool, is seasonally open for your outdoor enjoyment.
Lovingly constructed from the host’s own sawmill lumber, this tiny home/cabin is like a fairytale retreat within the woods. All the basics are within the interior of the circular structure, but nature is all you really need. Find yourself here, wandering amongst the forest and along Buffalo Creek.
In numerous ways, this is a fantastic classic cabin. But little touches, like the wooden hot tub on the porch, and the most precious bed with itty-bitty loft for kids, take it to the next level. The outdoor fire pit has a slightly more sleek character and also has pretty comfortable-looking places to sit.
Also refreshingly modern, this more box-shaped dwelling was designed by New York architectures. Inside is slightly more industrial, with metal bunk beds, and other contemporary features. What guests love most is the outdoor Dutch hot tub, which is the perfect place to be when wanting to gaze at the stars.
