About Gordon A Josey

As the owner and director of Camp Twin Creeks I enjoy the Schoolhouse each summer. I look forward to being able to share this amazing home in this truly magical corner of West Virginia with you while I'm not there.

Gordon A Josey purchased this house in 2005

Why Gordon A Josey chose Marlinton

West Virginia offers so much, I love the people, the fresh air of the countryside, the mountains, the creeks and being so close to Snowshoe mountain.

What makes this house unique

Waking up to the sound of the babbling creek will truly make you feel happy and fortunate to be here.

Great place, pretty property

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our families get together. The kiddos loved the upstairs room, and the dining area and living area were perfect for us to connect with each other.

Family reunion 2017

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for a family reunion for 13! Plenty of room and we had a great time! The kitchen was huge, so we could all be gathered while meals were made. Had a great early Thanksgiving together! It was cold, so we spent lots of time inside and made lots of family memories! Great place...everyone loved it!

It lived up to description advertised. This space was very adequate for Our family. Everything we needed was provided. Only issue was upstairs shower the handle was not able to be attached to the shower it’s just hung there. But our experience was very nice.
