About Lisa or Hans
Being a teacher in a big city, I always longed to go back to West Virginia. Having two cats, always made it difficult to find a good place to stay and the Cardinal is just ideal to bring them. As my husband works on ships and is away from home for months at a time, I wanted a place where I could be close to my mother who still lives in West Virginia and also feel safe.
Lisa or Hans purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Lisa or Hans chose Pipestem
Having grown up in West Virginia, I always wanted a vacation house in Southern West Virginia. When we found The Retreat at Pipestem we simply fell in love with the place. It's so beautiful and quiet and yet so close by the State Park that we could not resist. There were two log homes at that time and the Cardinal was never finished. We found a local builder who did a beautiful job finishing the log home and now having this house available, we decided that sharing this incredible experience was the natural thing to do.
What makes this Cabin unique
The saying that for real estate, the three most important things are location, location and location is certainly true for the Cardinal. Within a mile of the Lodge of Pipestem State Park with all the activities going with it. Being away from the main roads but still within of few miles of them, make this place a true gem amongst vacation homes.

Cabin was great! Enjoyed our time there. Highly recommended it to everyone visiting Pipestem. Location was great to visit various places. We took the Tram down to the Bluestone Dining and walked and fished along the Bluestone River. We visited Bluestone State Park and went to see Sandstone Falls. Took various trails. Our favorite trail was to the Lookout Tower a must if you visit Pipestem. We went swimming at the Lodge and enjoyed pizza form the Black Bear. Will definitely visit again in the near future.
Very nice and clean.

A perfect getaway!
The propert was spotless. We had a cozy comfortable couple of days. It was so much fun. My daughter, best friend and grandson enjoyed every second. The snowfall was magical! Coming from Florida it was the perfect place for my daughter and grandson to experience their first snowfall. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.
