The retreat at Everland has been in operation since 1999 as a special-needs camp for homeless and at-risk children. Officially known as Scottie’s Place (www.scottiesplace.org), the camp has served hundreds of youth from West Virginia to Washington D.C. and beyond, providing year-round academic and adventure-based programs to children in need. This property has an exceptional level of infrastructure yet has preserved the natural beauty of its wilderness setting. It offers excellent opportunities as a private estate, retreat center, or recreational camp.
