Matt, five of our friends, and I rented a cabin in Cabins, West Virginia for President’s Day weekend. If you are within driving distance to West Virginia and have an interest in skiing, the outdoors, or even just relaxing, I highly recommend renting a cabin in West Virginia for a weekend. The following was our itinerary, which I followed with suggestions for other activities.
Leave DC around noon. Drive to Charles Town, WV and go to Hollywood Casino (DO if you like casinos – correct me if I am wrong, but it is probably the best one in this region, DON‘T if you are like me and despise casinos). After the casino, drive to Moorefield, WV and get groceries for the weekend. Then drive to cabin. We rented a cabin from Harman’s North Fork Cottages. Our cabin had a grill, fire pit, jacuzzi, cable, internet, etc. and it was on a river. Our night was spent cooking dinner, watching TV, and just relaxing.
Woke up at 6:30am to get ready to go skiing at Timberline in Davis, WV (about an hour away). Spent day skiing at Timberline. I LOVE the Salamander trail. It’s two miles long and a green. Leave ski resort around 4:30pm. At the cabin we built a bonfire, made smores, ate good food, jumped into the hot tub, played board games, and relaxed.
Pack up to go back to DC.
There are so many other activities that we could have added to our itinerary. If I had not been so sick I would have been up for many more of these activities. The following is a list of other activities you could engage in WV during winter:
No matter the season, there are many great activites to do in West Virginia. I highly recommend a visit to West Virginia.
