  • Just the Right Balance

    "Peaceful surroundings. Conveniently located but reasonably secluded. Clean, well maintained property. Beautiful home. Babbling brook. If any or all of the preceding appeal to you, then contact David and Karen to make your reservations right away! David and Karen made all the logistics of our weekend getaway as easy as it could possibly be. They provided detailed directions, clear and concise instructions as to where things were and how things work at the cab, and answered all of our questions quickly and completely. Rippling Waters itself was a joy to spend time at. My wife and I greeted each day listening to the stream rippling down the hillside, our kids enjoyed winding down each night in the well featured hot tub. The scenery is beautiful and the cabin location is secluded enough that privacy is not a concern while relaxing on the deck or in the hot tub. Seneca Rocks, Dolly Sods, Blackwater Falls, and many other attractions are close by so there are many things to do when you venture out to explore the area. There are several good restaurants nearby as well so you can easily shift between grilling on the deck, making a meal in the full kitchen, or going out to eat at your whim. We will definitely be going back to Rippling Waters and will also be recommending any cabin or home owned and managed by David and Karen to family and friends."

  • Comfy, Cozy & Cute!

    "My husband and I took a last minute "Babymoon" (a get away before having our third child in a few weeks!) to this lovely cabin in the woods. The cabin is very easy to find, even with a late check in. There was plenty of wood to start a fire (look for the starter log, as we were scrounging for paper for a half hour till my husband pointed out the little brick, starter log). The wood-burning fire-place was our favorite feature along with the large jacuzzi tub, complete with candles! The loft, with sleeping room for 4 more people, had us dreaming of bringing our kids back in the future. We struggled to get the internet to work but plugged the ethernet cable directly into the laptop and did get service. The resort sent maintenance quickly to resolve this issue as soon as I brought it to their attention. Unfortunately we had to check out early and didn't get to stay our second night because of weather, but nothing about the cabin was less than what we were expecting! I would absolutely recommend this location and unit to anyone heading out to ski Timberline or just to have a romantic weekend away and enjoy the beautiful WV mountains. I would have loved to stay longer and see more of Canaan Valley and the wildlife preserve. We ate dinner at the Golden Anchor, about 10 minutes South on Rt 32. The atmosphere was lovely, the staff was very friendly and the food was delicious and reasonably priced."

  • Great house and great location

    "Our family of 5 enjoyed our stay at Creekside Cabin over Memorial Day weekend. We had some great hikes at Dolly Sods, Blackwater Forest, and Canaan Valley. The location was so convenient and we really enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and making s'mores over a campfire at the end of the day."

Canaan Valley Travel Tips

The Mountainous Canaan Valley Getaway Vacation Cabins

Although West Virginia was once part of Virginia, it became a state in its own right during the Civil War era. The state is proud of its historical heritage and offers many rich historical artifacts to visit as well as outdoor adventure. Because the state is so mountainous, a trip to West Virginia in the wintertime means skiing. You can choose private Canaan Valley vacation rentals with chef-inspired kitchens and cozy living rooms with fireplaces, perfect for enjoying a cup of hot chocolate after a day of skiing at the ski resort or river rafting in the spring and summer. For your next vacation, treat yourself to a “home away from home” as you speak directly to the owner of your Canaan Valley home or condo.

Year-Round Delights at Canaan Valley Vacation Rentals

Pick the time of year that best suits your outdoor adventurous spirit and you will find the perfect Canaan Valley vacation rental. Whether you want to indulge in a whitewater river rafting trip, hike in Blackwater Falls State park or ski down the terrain at one of the ski resorts, you can do it all from your vacation paradise. Hikers will delight in Blackwater Falls day hikes. You can pack a lunch for your group at your Canaan Valley vacation rentals and explore a new breathtaking site every day. The beautiful falls are 65 feet high and fall to a gorge that is 525 feet in depth. For people in your party that do not wish to hike down to the base of the falls, they can enjoy the observation point on the rim. Others can take the stairs to the foot of the falls for a spectacular view that is best captured on film.

If you visit this park in the winter, there are cross country skiing and sledding opportunities. However, there is no season that falls short with recreational activities. Paddle boating, swimming, hiking, tennis, volleyball, nature programs, golfing and bicycling are all pastimes that are enjoyed during the warmer months. Horseback riding is a great way to experience the beauty of nature when the fall colors burst into vibrant hues. There is food available at the state park if you do not want to tote your lunch with you.

Getting to Canaan Valley Lodging is Part of the Fun

Explore the Delightful Crafts of West Virginia Near Canaan Valley Condos

Shopping is more fun in West Virginia where you can choose from shops that are devoted to providing you with handmade quilts, pottery, baskets, handcrafted furniture and wood work items. At places such as the Canaan Trading Company, you will find Two Old Dames Shop that is worth a trip from your nearby Canaan Valley condos. Ginny and Mary offer candles, cards, herbal remedies, and vintage videos to take back to the condo to watch, as well as gourmet food items that will complete the multi-course meals you can indulge in at your well-equipped kitchen. This wonderful venue is open seven days a week beginning at 10:00 a.m. and as the girls state, “closes when they are tired.”

A store that features outdoor equipment for hiking, biking and skiing are also close by at Outdoors Edge Shop in Timberline Resort Lodge. If you are looking for trail food for your family hikes, visit the market at Timberline Resort. You could purchase all the ingredients from the bulk bins to make your own trail mix or grab a sandwich for a day trip.

If you are looking for gifts to take home, browse the Candlewyck Craft shop where recipe boxes, hand-painted glassware or birdhouses are begging to be taken home with you. You do not have to worry if you get a little carried away with your purchases because there is plenty of storage room at your Canaan Valley vacation home.
