Canaan Valley house description
La Bella Vista is an incredible home conveniently located on Manor Road off Route 32 in Canaan Valley. Overlooking the Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge, the breathtaking view from the large deck takes in all three local ski areas. You can enjoy lounging around either of two wood burning fireplaces, have a drink at the beautifully unique bar or take a luxurious jacuzzi bath to relax. Once you experience La Bella Vista, you'll never want to leave!
The local area has many activities in which to enjoy the outdoors. Canaan Valley State Park and Timberline Four Seasons Resort offer downhill lift served skiing with long gentle trails for beginners and gladed steeps for experts. White Grass Touring Center is just minutes away for those who like to earn their turns or just want to kick and glide on some flat groomed terrain. Tubing is available at the Canaan State Park as well as Blackwater Falls State Park in nearby historical Davis. Take an evening sleigh ride and experience this peaceful winter wonderland far away from hustle and bustle.
In the summer, there is world class whitewater rafting and rock climbing just a short drive away. The Canaan Valley Wildlife Refuge has guided nature hikes for any lover of the outdoors. We have tundra unlike anything south of Canada which provides habitat for species not seen elsewhere in the country. Mountain bikers have extensive trails to explore and there is even a local 'ride at five' on Thursdays if you like to ride with those who know the area.
Several nights a week there is live entertainment at The Purple Fiddle in Thomas (about 7 minute drive) featuring an eclectic blend of old-time and traditional bands, but also rock n' roll, jazz, funk, reggae, old-country, blues, Celtic, folk, and even Latin bands. Several local restaurants offer food for every taste and a small natural food grocery has what you need to cook at home.
Our visitors come to experience this area for the many fun and unique activities but some come to La Bella Vista and enjoy just being with their friends and family in a comfortable, luxurious atmosphere where the stress of life just seems to fade away. Come experience it for yourself!

This house was great. The kitchen is brand new, the house is spacious, and the hot tub was very nice. The owners were extremely helpful. They fixed the hot tub's power in 1 minute, they came and towed our car when we got stuck, and they gave us the utmost privacy. The views are great and we even showshoed from the backyard. Our dogs loved the area as well. Overall, a great experience and a great palce to stay.

La Bella Vista was a perfect place for our ski weekend - close to both Timberline and Canaan as well as a great place to return in the evenings. The house is spacious and comfortable with a very well-equipped kitchen. Did I mention the view? We just loved it! Marti was so nice, very responsive, and genuinely seemed to want us to have a good time. We'll definitely be back!

The house was great. Good location, spacious, amazing views. The owners were very friendly. I got my car stuck on an icy road and they helped me tow it out.

Canaan Valley is a hidden gem, and La Bella Vista is the hidden gem of Canaan Valley. The house and property are well-maintained and conveniently located between Canaan Valley State Park and Blackwater Falls State Park. Food shopping and house supplies are located nearby in Davis. There are plenty of activities in the area throughout the year, and the accommodations at the house are near perfect. Whether relaxing in the hot tub or gazing at the wildlife in the meadow, I couldn’t have been more pleased with the setting. My only regret is that at some point, the secret will get out and getting a great place to stay will get that much harder.
