About Dan and Barbara Turnage

I am retired Custom home builder from Chesapeake Va. but more importantly a lover of mountains and an out door enthusiast!

My wife and I decided the mountains of West Virginia because of our love for nature!

We moved here in 2008 and have been enjoying it ever since!

I spent over 30 plus years building custom dream homes for my clients in the Tidewater area of Va.

We are now at the season in our life where we want to experience our dreams come to pass. Our dream is to simply enjoy the beautiful mountains of WV and share it with as many people as we can!

We spend our time sharing our love for God's creation with family, friends and guests here in the Canaan valley area of WV!

We like to ski (both down hill and x-country), hike, bike, Kayak and go hunting. However; we also just love to relax and take in the amazing sunsets between the mountains in addition to stargaze!

On our many hikes to waterfalls and streams our beagle, Bluebell, comes along too. She even treads through the snow along side us in the winter when we go x-country skiing or snow shoeing!

Our days are filled entertaining family and friends who have taken time off from their busy lives to visit.

We cherish the time we are able spend with them by showing off wild, wonderful WV!

Why Dan and Barbara Turnage chose West Virginia

We chose to have a cozy cabin here because of the amazing views of the mountains and tranquil setting.

"Sunset Cabin" is positioned so you can enjoy both the sunrise and the sunset!

The location is also close to two ski resorts; Canaan Valley and Timberline. Additionally, it is close to Canaan Valley State park and Blackwater falls state park. These parks offer great hiking trails.

Additionally the area offers mountain biking, horseback riding, golfing, rock climbing, or hunting!

However; "Sunset Cabin" is also a perfect place to experience the sounds of nature in a quiet and relaxing atmosphere.

"Sunset Cabin" is where deep breaths of fresh mountain air are taken in and where many have received the answers to the "why's" and "purpose" of their lives:)..always answering back with praise and gratitude!

"Sunset Cabin" is a vacation spot to truly relax in order to be refreshed before heading back to work.

We believe watching the sunset and star gazing rejuvenates the soul by giving us strength, peace and balance for the road ahead.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin boasts of its views of the mountains and a peaceful setting.

Most of the activities such as skiing both downhill and x-country are approx. 7-10 miles away.

Horseback riding and hiking trails close as well.

We encourage people to relax around the real wood burning fireplace inside the cabin or outside by the campfire.

Star gazing is prime here in this part of WV! This is due to the fact it has been claimed to be one of the "darkest spots" on the east coast!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We certainly appreciate the comments left by our guests and would like to add that we have had in the past people on motorcycles visit us and had no problems, however the road is dirt and gravel and there is one hairpin turn, we like to call it, at the top of "Cherry Ridge".

We are not bikers but would also like to caution people with bikes of the nature of our roads.

This beautiful couple did have difficulty, and we apologized for their experience on our road and offered them a free night stay if they chose to come back.

Last night however we had eight bikers arrive at a large cabin here in "Cherry Ridge". We asked them this morning how the road was with bikes. They said "You have to be careful but it was fine." So with that being said please travel here on bikes at your own risk.

Four wheel drive is not necessary in the summer:)

West Virginia's Best!

  • 5 of 5

Barb & Dan

We never stay at they same home away twice but your place is an exception. We will be back for a third time and more! Everything about our stay was perfect. From your beautiful cabin and its amenities to the stunning sights and surroundings made it a trip to remember. Seeing a black bear and a albino deer near the cabin made it even more memorable. You guys are some of the nicest people we have ever met!

Thank again and hope to see you soon

John & Sharon

Owner's Response: Wow! Some of the reasons why we believe people love our cabin, "Sunset Cabin", and the area is because of the atmosphere. It is a time for "lovers of the soul (your mind, will, and emotions) to prosper.... We believe our cabin and the mountains of WV provide the setting for that to take place. We thank our guests so much for coming and experiencing a place where many truly unwind and distress.

Beautiful place with perfect hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at sunset cabin as part of our honeymoon. The mountain views from the porch are beautiful. The cabin was clean with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. Excellent location close to the dolly sods wilderness area. The cabin is in a private community and feels fairly secluded.

This is the place to unwind...hands down!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we arrived we felt at home! Every detail was covered and the setting can't be beat! The owners showed us true hospitality from the fresh brown eggs and garden veggies to giving us complete privacy. The view is spectacular and peaceful...allowing the mind, body and soul to rest and reconnect to what's really important...our relationships to each other and most importantly the God who created us! Watching the deer come out to feed in the evening or watching the birds take care of their young, you get a sense that Sunset Cabin has been blessed and you will be too! This will be our "go to" place in West Virginia!

Amazing getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

My best friend & I went to relax, exercise & meditate - what better place than Sunset Cabin?! Barbara & Dan were the perfect host(s) & the cabin had everything you would ever need. So quaint & clean! They even provided a captivating sunset! (Well God did but they lent us their paradise) 😁?

There is so much to do in the beautiful mountains of WV- from bike riding, rock climbing, swimming or even just to read a book by a serene river.

We will definitely choose to stay at Sunset Cabin again in the near future!!!

Thank you Barbara & Dan!!!

Beauty all around

  • 5 of 5

This was probably one of the most beautiful places I've visited so far. I came here with my gf and friends, specifically to get away from the city and to finally see some actual stars and this place really succeeded. Even though it was set to storm during my visit, Barbara assured us that weather blows by up there and the storm never even bothered the trip. We had mild weathered days and bright starry nights, even in July I never once felt too hot. The place was very clean, wifi was decent, hot tub was great (that view is amazing) and we literally had everything we needed there but food and your clothes. The place was prepared for alot and I really appreciated Barbara's warm hospitality. I will definitely make this journey again next year.

Owner's Response: We thoroughly enjoy having friends come together to relax in the beautiful mountains of WV! We appreciate being able to share the beauty of Gods creation with those who live in the city. We find people walk away with a refreshed feeling after being "Quiet and still" under the stars! So happy weather was not a distraction for these friends but a delightful "unexpected" experience here in the mountains!

A hidden gem in the mountains of WV

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't be happier with our stay! Very inviting cabin with breath taking sunset views just miles away from plenty of outdoor activities. Dan & Barb are truly great people and you can see their passion in their cabin. We will be back in the fall to see the beautiful fall foliage!
