Canaan Valley house description

If you are looking for a large, fun, convenient, reasonably priced, comfortable, spacious place to stay for skiing (downhill and cross country), hiking, mountain biking, wedding receptions , reunions, white water rafting, meetings, golf and Canaan Valley resort or just a peaceful get-a-way, this is the place for you. Our reviews say it all. Check the calendar before you inquire.

Summer & Winter Get-a-way. Read our reviews. We swear we didn't write them.

This large spacious lodge is 4 hours or less driving distance from the Baltimore, Washington, Northern Virginia areas. The Golden Retreat has plenty of room to relax, move around and enjoy nature's year round adventures. This area is known for tons of snow, down hill and cross country skiing. Relax in the 7 person hot tub with a glass of wine while soothing your sore muscles. We have many more pictures, both internal or external if you want them. Just email us.

In the summer, Dolly Sods provides some of the East Coast's best hiking, biking (road & mountain), bird watching and white water rafting. The hot tub is normally closed during the months of July and August.

Read our reviews. We know you will want to return year after year. Pet and kid friendly. No cats please. Owners keep a very clean house due to allergies. No smoking please. NO SMOKING. Please contact Mark and Katie if you need additional information including bed room configurations, more pictures, etc. Thank you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

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.
