About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

Escape to the country on this 105 acre estate in the Mountain Lakes Region of West Virginia. A beautiful newly renovated 3000 square foot home boasts granite counters in a gourmet kitchen, 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths with a patio overlooking the meadows and pond. Total privacy abounds as you sit on the 2nd floor balcony of the master bedroom suite, watching deer in the meadow. This home has central ac, hardwood floors and a fully stocked kitchen. The house comfortably sleeps 10 with 2 kings, 2 fulls, and 2 twins and a queen sleeper sofa. Linens are provided.

The spacious, beautiful home is only surpassed by the 105 acres of privacy for your enjoyment. Catch some fish for dinner from our stocked fishing pond, hike or bike on miles of secluded trails, pick ripe blackberries or raspberries in season, or simply sit back and relax, enjoying the perfect serenity that surrounds you.

Please Note: This is a NON-SMOKING residence

Wildlife : Wildlife watching is a relaxing pastime. Black Bear, Bobcat, Whitetail Deer, Coyote, Fox, Osprey, and other small game have been sited from our patio! A must do is the West Virginia State Wildlife Center in French Creek, WV, only 4 miles from Walnut Cove. The Wildlife Center is a native wildlife zoo in a natural setting. In addition to the exhibit there is a gift shop, picnic areas and a stocked trout pond (license required).

Food: The full gourmet kitchen at Walnut Cove Retreat has everything you need to prepare that perfect meal. A full grocery store is located only 1.2 miles from the property. In case you want to go out, (but we doubt it) there is a small quick order restaurant in the community of Rock Cave 1.2 miles away. For more options, drive 15 miles to Buckhannon for fine dining at the 88 Restaurant and Lounge or casual dining at one of the many restaurants. Information on additional choices can be provided. Another fine dining option is Stillwaters Restaurant 20 miles away at Stonewall Jackson Lake and Resort.

Great Family Fun: Let the kids enjoy the swing, sandbox and swing set, if they aren't already having too much fun exploring the property. In winter, don't forget your cross country skis, or simply enjoy great sledding (sleds provided).

What a wonderful get a way!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fabulous time at this country home nestled in the backwoods of West Virginia. It was the perfect place to get away from the world and unwind with our entire family. We had ten of us, my husband and myself, along with our four adult children and their spouses. We also brought along two dogs and they ran all over the property wearing each other out. We were able to have camp fires every evening, enjoy a game of pool, play cards and games, and eat to our hearts content! This is a perfect place for a family get a way if you are seeking some rest and relaxation and time to unplug from the world!

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

We had a fairly positive experience. The house was beautiful and with lots of space. The house has obviously been vacant for some time as noted by cobwebs and dust. The grounds could have been kept up a little more. The shrubs were over growing through the porch and the grass was higher than expected by the pond. We were hoping to take our kids fishing but we weren't comfortable taking them in the high grass. I dedicated a star for those reasons, because over all it was a good experience.

Our three generation holiday get together. at Walnut Grove

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Walnut Grove from 12-31-15 to 1-3-16. There was enough room for everyone not to trip over each other. The kitchen was supplied well from sugar to cookie sheets and there was visibility to see what the children were doing as the adults prepared meals. The directions to the home by the owner were better than our GPS or mapquest.

Amazing is an understatement!

  • 5 of 5

Walnut Cove was actually our second choice, after the property we wanted to rent for our fall getaway was all ready booked, and would could not have been happier. We have used HomeAway and VRBO many times, and this is by far the best property we have ever rented! The kitchen was was well stocked with plenty of pots and pans, and all the utensils one would need, and the range and double oven made meals so much easier. The whole family loved exploring the property, and the view from the top of the hill rivals some of the best views in the state. On our first night there it was clear enough to see the windmills in Nicholas County. The only complaint we had is we didn't have longer to stay!

Little piece of heaven in the country

  • 5 of 5

We so loved our stay. The home was everything we'd hoped for and they didn't forget a thing. We felt welcome and at home....the scenery is breath taking and private. We created such great memories and can't wait to stay again.

We had a wonderful stay! Lovely house and a beautiful setting! We especially loved the trails cut through the fields and woods. We also took advantage of the fire pit nightly!
