7 Mountain Cabin Rentals in West Virginia With Incredible Views
West Virginia has more than earned its nickname, "The Mountain State." Home to more than 1,000 named mountains and the only state entirely within the Appalachian Mountain region, it's an outdoor and mountaineering dream. It's a place where Mother Nature's beauty is abundant every way you turn — and that's why it's a good idea to ensure your next West Virginia vacation rental also comes with an epic outdoor view.
Here are seven mountain cabin rentals dotting West Virginia's beautifully craggy landscape that you can book right now.
Moss Hill Chalet Cabin: Berkeley Springs

The Moss Hill Chalet in Berkeley Springs comes with wall-to-wall windows, a screened porch, outdoor deck, and a firepit, all of which are ideal for sitting inside and out to stare at the surrounding landscapes. The home, which sits near Cacapon State Park, comes with every amenity a traveler would need for a quick night away or a weeks-long getaway.

Cozy Farm Cottage: Odd
With more than 140 private acres of land, this cozy farm cottage comes with unfettered views of the West Virginia landscape.

Highlands View: Petersburg
Beautiful mountain cabins should be for everyone, and that's where Highlands View comes in. The fully wheelchair-accessible glamping tent is nestled inside a high glass tunnel. This means the views are still there, but the rain, mud, and wind are not. Explore the property and drink in the Highland views from all sides.

Luxury Log Cabin: Dry Fork
To really get away from it all, book a stay at this luxury log cabin in Dry Fork. Not only does it come with 12 acres of private land, but to get there, guests must have at least four-wheel drive as it sits both high on a hill and in the midst of some rather rugged — and glorious — wilderness. Once there, guests can enjoy either the indoor or outdoor fireplaces, cook a gourmet meal in the oversized kitchen, or roam the land until the day's end.

Located in the George Washington National Forest, the home is a true escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
