We Bid You Welcome to Our Home

Cedarcrest Sanctum, Glenville WV

All first-time visitors are invited to read Our Story.

We’re a modern, privately funded rest home nestled in the beautiful mountains of central West Virginia, just outside of Glenville in picturesque Gilmer County. Our executive administrator will ensure all of your questions are answered.

Our 5-star facility provides 24-hour, long-term elder care while pioneering innovative quality-of-life treatments and technologies. Many of our staff doctors and researchers received some training at local Glenville State College.


In response to recent local media reports branding our policies as “secretive,” we remind you the state oversight committee advocates the privacy of our residents. We are NOT accepting applications for new residents or staffers at this time.

For inquiries, visit our contact page; allow up to three business days for review. Please read the welcome letter from our executive administrator. Thank you for supporting Cedarcrest Sanctum… and believing in things that you cannot.
