Looking for a vacation where you can enjoy nature, unplug and relax? You have found the right place. Our house, which we have dubbed, Almost Heaven is nestled at the foot of a mountain in the wilds of West Virginia surrounded by rolling hills. The property has 4 acres with various out buildings and is situated between 2 small spring-fed streams. New construction accented with antiques makes you feel right at home. The upstairs kitchen is fully equipped and the outdoor charcoal grill is ready for you to make/grill your favorite dishes. The deck is the perfect place to eat, read, sunbathe, watch hawks soar and/or count the stars. In the evening sit by the outdoor fire pit and roast marsh mellows. (The indoor fireplace is in the process of being converted to gas.) The house sleeps 6 with a queen bed in the master bedroom, a single bed in the sun room which is surrounded by windows on 3 sides, and 2 twin beds and a double bed are on the lower level which is set up as an efficiency apartment.
