Cheap Land in West Virginia near Black Bear Resort & Timberline Mountain
When you drive to this property, you’re driving through one of the most sparsely populated (for now) and beautiful areas in the Appalachian Mountains. In fact, you literally can’t escape the natural splendor here, as Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge runs right up to your property line, with Blackwater Falls State Park only about 10 minutes up the road.
- No Restrictions
- Priced approximately 18% Below Market
- Beautiful Views of Mountains & Canann Valley Ski Area
- Borders Gov’t Land / Wildlife Refuge
- Power Pole On-Site
- Extensive Road Frontage but Very Quiet Road
- Just 10 Minutes from Blackwater Falls State Park
PROPERTY: This U-shaped 4.94 acre lot is moderately wooded and moderately sloped, but still very buildable as evidenced by the two neigboring homes along the same street. It features about 720 feet of direct frontage on Promised Land Road. There are no structures on site, but power does run along the road frontage and there are no floodplain issues, so it’s ready for a new home or cabin. It’s ready for anything, in fact, because there are no restrictions here! The very lightly developed area will ensure your tranquil existence as you gaze around at all the Blue Ridge beauty and wonder how you got so lucky that you live in a place where others pay dearly just to visit. In fact, some of these visitors to Tucker County stay at the well-appointed Black Bear Resort just a few minutes down the road. They don’t just come to look though, as the three different ski resorts in the county (including Timberline, “Ski Capital of the Mid-Atlantic”) are transforming this region into a budding winter wonderland and summer vacation hotspot. Not a skier? No problem! The rich abundance of wildlife, nearby mountain gorges, lakes, streams, and waterfalls offer all the natural adventure you could ever want. The federally-owned and managed Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge even shares the southern border of this property! Blackwater Falls State Park is only 10 minutes up the road through the quaint mountain town of Davis, which offers a grocery store and other basic services. For a more complete shopping experience, head 40 minutes north to Oakland, Maryland and hit Walmart, Lowe’s, or a host of other retail outlets.

FOR SALE BY OWNER: We are investors, and are selling this lot For-Sale-By-Owner. You do not need to submit your offer through a real estate agent, and in our experience we close transactions more quickly and easily by having our dedicated transaction coordinator work directly with the Title Company and Buyers. We will also both save money on commission/fees by cutting out agents as the middle men. However, if you feel strongly about working with a Realtor, then you’re welcome to have them contact us on your behalf.
OWNER FINANCING: We do not offer owner-financing but you could get a loan through a bank or another lender and we’d be happy to coordinate with them.
OUTSIDE FINANCING: Your best deal for financing will come from a local bank or credit union and we can help you find a great deal. Land loans typically require about 15-25% down.
WHY ARE YOU SELLING IT SO CHEAP? We are often asked why we price our properties at below market value, and the answer is really simple: because we can, and that’s our core business model. We are investors who purchase properties at a large volume and deeply liquidated rates, and by passing this discount on to our buyers, we can sell land quickly . . . and more of it! In fact, our average property only lasts 2-3 weeks on the market (vs. industry average of about 6 months).
DISCLAIMER: We attempt to provide detailed, accurate and up-to-date information in our listings, in order to help our buyers to the best of our ability. However, it ultimately remains the buyer’s responsibility to perform their own due diligence and double check any details that are of significant importance to you including acreage, utilities, build-ability, and approved/allowable use-age for the property. We are happy to help however we can.
