Abrams Creek Center is located in the Potomac Highlands section of West Virginia, about 2-1/2 hours west of Washington DC and 2 1/2 hours south-east of Pittsburgh. The terrain is characterized by lush mountains, year-round rivers and streams, and clear, clean mountain air.
Situated just past the first crest of the Allegheny Ridge, we are in a different weather system than most of the major cities on the East Coast. Because of this, it is never too hot here; our record highs are about 90, and most summer days are in the high 70's or low 80's. Temperatures stay moderate from spring until the late fall. Rainfall is typical of the Eastern US.
The area is rural, bordering on wilderness, with small urban centers with a full range of stores and services about a half-hour away. We are surrounded by recreational areas and nature preserves; within a half-hour's drive, there are dozens of major attractions, and hundreds of smaller ones.
