Living and Working in Green Bank

Green Bank is a peaceful area with a unique mix of striking natural beauty and state-of -the-art technology. The large majority of residents of the area, both natives and new comers, love this special environment. The area is a center for outdoor recreation and has a reputation as an excellent environment for raising a family.

Green Bank is located in Pocahontas County, West Virginia, an area known by the thousands who visit each year as "Nature's Mountain Playground."   From Snowshoe Mountain's world-class resort, to the Cass Scenic Railroad State Park, to the Cranberry Glades and Nature Center, to hundreds of miles of hiking and biking paths, to endless miles of rivers and streams to paddle and fish - we have something for everyone when it comes to outdoor fun.  The activities and attractions pages provide all the details and the drop down menus provide lodging options for your family, whether you like luxury condos overlooking the valleys or cute country cabins set alongside rambling streams.
