Be nice! Be friendly! Be Kind! Be orderly! Don't make or leave a mess! Just the good old simple courtesies of being part of "the Tribe."
Paved roads, residential neighborhood. A U.S. Highway (U.S. 220) leads into/out of town at both ends. The location is approximately 3 minutes from U.S. 220 and is on a small creek that is part of the North Branch of the Potomac River.
Since I travel a fair amount myself - it is available whenever I'm here. However, there may be some possibilities even when I'm on the road. That determination can be made on individual requests. When I'm here, weekdays, weekends and holidays are all fair game. Send a request to check on availability.
Nancy Hanks, Abraham Lincoln's mother's farm and a recreation of her cabin is nearby. The Potomac River is near. There are two scenic trains (Cumberland, MD & Romney, WV) within an hour of Keyser.There is lots of beautiful WV & western MD mountain, rolling hills and rural farms throughout this region. It's a slice of rural Americana. The beautiful Shenandoah Valley is about 70 miles east (about 1 1/2 hour drive) and Washington, DC is about 125 east (about a 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive). This area is rich in antiques, Appalachian tradition and bluegrass and old time mountain music. WV University is about 2 hours west and Pittsburgh, PA is about 3 hours northwest.
Our host was away but his friend welcomed us. She and I chatted a few hours and had a great visit. I have a new friend!
If you happen to be passing by Keyser, WV this a great place to stay.
Good conversations, electric hook-up and a very quiet evening.
Host and I did not run out of major world issues to analyze with insight.
Wouldn’t have missed it for the world.
We were guests of Professional Nomad for one night. We were made to feel very welcome and that was much appreciated. And althought it was a short visit it was such a nice visit. Actually I ran into PN a the local Walmart just a bit after i came into town. What a surprise that was! He's good at putting 2 and 2 together :) I was only in Keyser for a short time but boondocking at this site worked out very well. Thank you so much to PN. If we come down again I'll be sure to contact PN again.
A big thank you to nomad.
Upon arriving, we engaged in a long conversation where I learned a lot about him, his past and great future plans - a real kind, generous host.
