Property description

Our home is the perfect place for couples, families and even a couple of families (sleeps 8!). With an outside deck, grill and view, it’s a perfect for grillin’ and chillin’.

On colder nights, especially in the winter time, the cozy living room is a perfect place to have a fire and watch a flick on the flat screen. (Don’t worry about having to truck in firewood in the back of your car…we have an ample supply ready and waiting for you!)

Kids (and maybe even the adults) will enjoy the loft with 2 bunk beds - a perfect place for a slumber party. Equipped with TV, VCR and video games, they may just never come down!

And if work calls…or you need a few days of ‘tele-commuting’, the wifi and Internet access are a bonus. Come and stay, work or play, we are sure you’ll love our house as much as we do!

Our cabin at Black Bear Resort is the perfect place for weekend getaways, family vacations and family reunions. Come and enjoy the great amenities that Black Bear Resort offers. These are all available to you (at no extra charge). Enjoy the great outdoor swimming pool (with an incredible view of the mountains), play a few tennis matches, take in a round of mini golf or try your skill at the well-stocked fishing pond and let your children play to their delight at the childrens’ playground.

Or venture further afield and enjoy the wealth of natural resources and diverse outdoor recreational options: Blackwater Falls, your choice of two great ski areas: Timberline Ski Resort or Canaan Valley State Park; Seneca Rocks or the Monongahela National Forest. From Black Bear you are only an hour’s drive from world famous Seneca Rocks and the two awesome caverns, Seneca and Smoke Hole. In nearby Elkins, ride the Durbin & Greenbrier Valley Railroad excursion train.

Close by, the small communities of Davis and historic Thomas, WV offer some great eats. We have the house stocked with a listing of our favorites from which you may choose.

Spring: February through June heralds the best fly fishing in the Potomac Highlands. Late spring is our favorite time for bird and wildlife watching and photography.

Summer: In Canaan Valley, cool mountain temperatures make Canaan Valley and the surrounding area the perfect summer retreat. Hikers and mountain bikers gravitate to the west banks of the Blackwater River for the 10+ mile stint between Thomas and Hendricks and the sensational views of Blackwater Canyon.

Fall: The mountains (and valley) blaze in mid-to-late September. Beech, oak, cherry, maple and aspen take on hues of reds, golds, oranges and browns, accented by the dark-green background of evergreens.

Winter: Winter brings another world of its own where the Canaan Valley turns into a Winter Wonderland with great skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing and sledding/tubing from a choice of over 76 slopes and trails, seven lifts, a terrain and tubing park at two of the best West Virginia ski resorts: Canaan Valley Resort State Park and Timberline Four Seasons Resort.

West Virginia…so far, but yet so close…Wild and Wonderful West Virginia. Our cozy cabin at Black Bear Resort (BBR) is surrounded by Federal Wilderness land! Escape to this beautiful neck of the woods that is less than an 3 hours from Pittsburgh, PA or Charleston, WV. And now, thanks to the new super highway, aka Corridor H, less than 3 hours from Washington, DC!

150 miles (3 hrs) from Pittsburgh
180 miles (3 hrs) from DC
300 miles from Columbus, OH

**Update: Many of our recent guests have appreciated the extra 1/2 bath (toilet only), new fridge and upgraded outdoor lighting. They also liked the fact that there are only TWO steps up from the driveway to the house (other houses have 10 or more steps to 'climb' from the driveway to the house!)

**Update: Do you have little kids? We have added a good and sturdy highchair that wheels about. So no need to bring highchairs or booster seats.

Owner info

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The fireplace, the deck and the loft make this a special place for us. When having guests stay with us, the extra 1/2 bath (toilet only) makes getting ready in the morning easier. More than anything, it is a nice, quiet and tranquil place from which to escape the buziness of life. Also only 2 steps from driveway to deck (as opposed to 10 or more for other houses).
