About Lisa or Hans
My name is Lisa Mateboer and I was born and raised in West Virginia. I became a teacher in Charlotte, NC, but always was traveling back to West Virginia to visit my mother who still lives there. Wanting a place to stay I found what we later called The Retreat at Pipestem. My husband works out of the country a lot and one of the things I looked at was whether I would stay there alone. 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 House in 2006
Why Lisa or Hans chose Pipestem
When we found It, 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 Black Bear we built a few years later. We found a local builder who did a beautiful job building and finishing the log home. The location is ideal, right next to the StatePark, away from the main roads, but still easy accesible.
What makes this House unique
The saying that for real estate, the three most important things are location, location and location is certainly true for the Black Bear. 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.
