SURROUNDING AREA

The property is located in south-central West Virginia just east of Beckley, a region highly regarded for its blend of forest and farmland and high interstate access. Two interstate expressways—I-64 and I-77—converge nearby at Beckley, accommodating easy access to metropolitan areas of the eastern U.S. However, the area is best known for its proximity to national parks and outdoor recreation. The property is approximately six miles from the Shady Spring exit on the I-64 expressway and two miles from highway US-19, which is now being upgraded as an expressway.

New River Gorge National Park and Preserve
America’s newest national park, the New River Gorge National Park and Preserve approaches within three miles of the property and has dramatically influenced the economic outlook for the region. Tourism officials estimate visitor traffic has more than doubled since it was established a year ago. The park may best be known as a destination for hiking, biking, rock climbing, and whitewater rafting, though the immediate area is highly regarded for fishing, hunting, and hiking. The Glade Creek is one of the most popular catch-and-release trout streams in West Virginia and is only 3.5 miles from the property. Grandview is one of the top visitor attractions in the park and affords spectacular views of the New River Gorge at its deepest and widest point.

Grandview (National Park Area)
One of the primary destinations in the new national park, Grandview has been attracting picnickers and sightseers for generations. Both the park and the adjacent community of Grandview are named for the spectacular views of the narrowing valley of the New River afforded from clifftop overlooks. The main overlook at Grandview and the nearby Turkey Spur overlook are among the most visited locations in the park. The summer outdoor dramas “Honey in the Rock” and “Hatfields & McCoys” have been attracting visitors to the park’s Cliffside Amphitheatre since 1974.

Little Beaver State Park
One of the most community-driven parks in the state park system, Little Beaver is a favorite local destination for fishing, hiking, biking, and camping. A drive of fewer than five miles from the property, it accommodates easy access to outdoor recreation when national park facilities may be crowded. The park includes 18-acre Little Beaver Lake, ideal for flatwater kayaking, and a 46-site campground open year-round.

Winterplace and Glade Springs
The ski resort Winterplace is a drive of approximately 20 minutes south of the property. It boasts nine lifts, 27 trails, night skiing, and a snow tubing park. Adjoining I-77,  it’s easily accessible to millions of skiers and markets itself as “Where the South learns to ski!” Also nearby, the Resort at Glade Springs offers three world-class golf courses and country-club amenities in a residential gated community.

Glade Creek Trails  (National Park Area)
Maintained by the National Park Service, the Glade Creek Trails system includes more than 15 miles of woodland trails that visit wetlands, waterfalls, and some of the most remote forests in the national park. Its southern trailhead is a drive of fewer than five miles from Old Grandview Road. Glade Creek is also a beloved trout stream, and its swimming holes are popular in summer.
