If your dream is to retire or relocate to a luxurious private estate in the mountains, Shepherds Cove could be your next address.

Located in the Shenandoah Highlands of West Virginia along the upper reaches of the Potomac River, Shepherds Cove is a secluded retreat in a region known for its welcoming towns, seasonal festivals, and historic sites. At the same time, the local station offers daily train service to and from the Washington, DC, and Baltimore areas for business appointments and cultural events.

Every Shepherds Cove homesite is a full five acres in size, and the community is planned for a total of just 20. That’s five acres of your own woodlands, meadows, creeks, peace, and quiet. All of the community utility lines, including high-speed Internet access, are buried for unobstructed views. Luxurious Shepherds Cove residences, from estate-sized mansions to spacious log cabins, are custom crafted by the region’s finest architects and home builders.

Shepherds Cove amenities include a 23-acre common area on the water with boat docks, kayak launches, and private access to 12 miles of navigable river. The community pavilion overlooking the Potomac has an outdoor kitchen, and there are miles of hiking/biking paths within and just beyond the gates. Supermarkets and stores are only a 12-minute drive away, while the immediate area also includes mountain golf courses, wineries, mineral springs, ski resorts, and the Appalachian Trail.
