Canaan Valley is truly a four-season recreational Mecca: beat the heat and humidity with a summertime rental, enjoy the spectacular fall colors from the back of a mountain bike or horse, ski at one of the Valley’s resorts in winter (or cross-country right out the door), and the best of springtime whitewater boating (Blackwater, Forks of the Cheat, etc.).
Come experience the best of wild and wonderful West Virginia!

About the owner: Frank and Bridget Fico at Bald Knob, overlooking the southern end of Canaan Valley.
Why the Owner Chose Canaan Valley: We have been coming to Canaan Valley for over 20 years, primarily to enjoy the myriad cross-country skiing options available here. We have had our teenage girls skiing with us since they were too big to carry along in the backpack. When we found this property, we knew it was in a perfect location to ski right from our house without having to make a long uphill climb or cross private land, using a network of trails that connect to Canaan Loop Road. We hope other cross-country skiers will appreciate and take advantage of the location.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We have left the mountain bikes at the house for others to enjoy because the location also affords great opportunities for mountain biking: Canaan Loop Road is a gravel/dirt road that offers easy access to Blackwater Falls State Park through the National Forest with minimal car traffic, and there are numerous side trails that offer more advanced single-track opportunities. The house is situated on an oversize lot, with extra buffer between the nearest neighbors. And our location at the top of the development means ample peace and quiet for just lounging out on the decks and enjoying the wooded surroundings.
