Escape Plan

Hampshire County was the first county established in West Virginia. Come check out the history and hospitality.

Welcome to Eagle Country. You'll find a relaxing mountain escape for weekend getaways, family reunions, camping on the river. Kayak or canoe on the South Branch of the Potomac River. Climb Ravens Rock or visit Ice Mountain.  Explore antique shops and country auctions. Visit our local farms and markets. Immerse yourself in George Washington's history, Civil War tales, ride the Potomac Eagle train and meet our favorite citizens: the Bald Eagles.

Winter months are quiet here--perfect for unwinding and giving your mind and body a much-needed rest in peaceful surroundings.

 If we can assist you with your visit or event information, please call us at 304.822.7477 or send an email to
