About the owner: We love the woods, outdoors, stars, quiet, clean air, and the opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of our fast paced and hectic lives. We have yet to decide what is better, summer or winter. Both have lots to offer. Katie loves to cross county ski at Whitegrass or downhill at Timberline and Mark likes the excitement of Class 5 white water rafting, hiking and camping. Both like relaxing walks with the dog.
Why the Owner Chose Canaan Valley: Great outdoors wonderland. We love outdoor sports, relaxing in the hot tub, a safe, fun place for the kids and lots of places to walk the dogs.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This Golden Retreat has plenty of room to move around and host lots of family and friends. Enjoy the fresh air, clean water and unlimited outdoor activities. Leave your BlackBerry/iPhone/Droid at home. Relax, read a book, play some pool/table tennis, soak in the hot tub, drink a glass of wine and enjoy the stars and peace and quiet.
