Property description

A visit to Carminden Cottage is the perfect family getaway to get back to basics. This cottage is named after our daughters Carmin, Denise and Mindy. Featuring Quiet nights and fun filled days!

This beautiful, smoke-free, cedarwood home is located in the heart of the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia.

Minutes away from two ski resorts, Canaan Valley and Timberline, and minutes away from the Four Seasons Resort, which host the famous Dolly Sods hiking trail.

There is also a lake, river, fishing, bike rental, and golf nearby. In addition, there is a shared swimming pool that is now open for the summer. If there is a shopper in the family there are also craft and specialty shops only minutes away from Carminden Cottage.

Spend your Nights dining in the cottage around the fireplace. If you are in the mood to go out for dinner there is a multitude of dining options.

This location also features some of the areas best restaurants. Ranging from juicy steak and chicken to succulent seafood and mouth watering desserts.

For the busy family a trip to Canaan Valley is a refreshing opportunity to tune into each other as well as tune into nature. Whether you spend your winter days skiing, or your summer days hiking, fishing, swimming and bike riding. You are sure to leave rested, refreshed, and ready to return to the hustle and bustle of your normal life.

Our family is excited to offer you and your family the opportunity to experience the soothing,slow pace life that we have enjoyed over the years.

As our kids have grown-up, they always remember the magical visits to their home away from home at Carminden Cottage. We hope the experience is just as rewarding and we hope that you will take a piece of the "magical spirit" of Carminden Cottage home with you.
