Canaan Valley cabin description

Beautiful Fall get-a-way. Now with new interstate, it is under three hours from DC or Balt.

Great place to spend your skiing holiday near the Timberline slopes.A serene, intimate, and beautifully furnished cabin in gated Old Timberline adjacent to its conservancy is nestled in Cannan Valley, WV. The secluded cabin, perfect for a honeymoon couple or those seeking refuge from the frantic pace of urban life is cool in the summer and has ample powder in the winter. Situated on five acres of wooded and open meadow lands with its own pond, the cabin has gorgeous sunset views over Spruce Island Lake and long views of the valley and the adjacent Cabin Mountain. Six miles of private trails at your doorstep, a short walk to Timberline Four Season slopes, ten minutes to Whitegrass Cross Country Center, or Cannan Valley Ski and Golf Resort. The cabin has been recently renovated, inside and out.

Hiking: Because you are renting in Old Timberline you will have access to the top of the mountain trails into Dolly Sods and a Fish and Wildlife access trail. The six miles of well maintained trails inside Timberline can be accessed on the path from the house to Spruce Island Lake.

Golf: The 18 hole championship course of The Canaan Valley Resort Park is ten minutes away. Frequent golf events are scheduled and open to the public. The course is set in the gentle rolling hills of Canaan Valley rimmed with mountains.

Ski: Canaan Valley is the most northern of the West Virginia ski resorts with three separate establishments - Canaan Valley Resort State Park, Timberline, and Whitegrass Cross County Ski Center. The Valley has been having record snowfalls. It will be a great winter.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: We love getting away to the outdoors in any season. This truly is our 'touchstone'. We love to hike particularly in Dolly Sods, around Seneca Rocks and even the six miles of Old Timberline trails which is accessed off our front deck.

                      Why the Owner Chose Canaan Valley:
                      Touchstone is the best of both worlds. It is private and secluded yet close to 'civilization' and the front gate for supplies and emergencies.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Timberline ski slopes are two minutes away, the lake is just beyond the front yard and the Timberline walking trail goes by our house. Because of all the windows, you feel part of nature, no matter the season. We love seeing all the wildlife walking to and from the lake.
