Meadow Bridge WV 25976

79.55 acre mountaintop property with eight architecturally unique cabins, spectacular views. Currently operating as Spirit Sanctuary, a private retreat center.

Far from the cares of modern life, this one-of-a-kind property features cabins of local materials, ranging from a log cabin lodge to a stone tower, with electricity and bathrooms. Built between 1960 and 2004 and spanning styles from primitive to elaborate, the cabins are creative delights, with touches like stained-glass windows, handcrafted doors, decorative metal work, exposed beams and a sauna.

Standouts among the eclectic collection of buildings are a round, turret-style stone structure, with an interior ladder leading to a lookout tower; an octagonal dining hall with handcrafted cabinetry, lots of prep space, a gas countertop range and two wall ovens; and an attractive two-story log cabin lodge with exposed timbers, beadboard ceilings and two large covered porches.

As presently configured, one cabin is designated as an office, another as a dining facility and a third as a recreation hall, with pool and ping-pong tables and an antique Victrola. All the cabins are heated by propane gas stoves, antique woodstoves, or both. Those with sleeping quarters have one to three bedrooms, or open-plan bunking spaces. Many of the cabins' furnishings, antiques and eye-catching appointments are included with the sale, as well as outdoor items like a porch swing and picnic tables.

Surprises abound around every corner, including unexpected touches like an elaborate hand-carved wormy chestnut door, sunny nooks, brick flooring, a small basketball court, and even decent cell service despite the lofty, remote locale.

For 35 years this unique property has served as a retreat center, drawing youth and adults from a 300-mile radius for retreats focusing on leadership skills, team building and community action. Many have described the property and their experiences as spiritual, hence the name Spirit Sanctuary.  

The 79.55+/- acre mountain tract is mostly wooded, with mixed hardwoods, evergreens and several substantial stands of bamboo. Distant mountain vistas are visible through the trees. A seasonal creek even has a small waterfall.

The location is quiet, tranquil and well off the beaten path, but only a 15-minute drive from the Green Sulphur Springs exit on Interstate 64. Access on the one-lane road traversing the property is not recommended for low clearance vehicles.

Besides serving as a getting-away-from-it-all retreat for personal renewal, artistic or wellness purposes, this sizeable property could readily serve as a yoga retreat, a private family compound, or even a hunting camp for a group or a club.
