"My 3 daughters, 2 granddaughters, and I stayed at Lazy Day River Retreat when we visited Berkley Springs. The house was wonderful! Three nicely furnished bedrooms with extremely comfortable beds refreshed us each night. The kitchen was stocked with everything we could possibly need and was clean, clean, clean. Friday we went to Cacapon State Park and rode horses and when we got back to the house we climbed into the hot tub to relax our tired muscles. It was super clean with no strong smell of chemicals and just the right temperature. We sat there, talked, and enjoyed the views of nature. Saturday it rained most of the day BUT we found Downton Abbey in the extensive video library--there's something for everyone and lots of new releases. Someone finally pried the control from my hand and we left Downton for Grand Torino. Ate at the Panorama Restaurant and returned for another session in the hot tub and a cozy fire in the fireplace. Did I tell you how much I enjoyed the hot tub? The house is in a private neighborhood with very few neighbors, an extremely large lot with pawpaw trees and a wrap-a-round deck with table, chairs and, yes, a great hot tub! I like to go barefooted in the house and the carpets were clean and super soft! The hardwood floors were shiny and smooth but not slippery. If you are going to the state park from the house, take Cold Valley Road--it is a scenic shortcut. I can't wait to go back!"

"Just returned from a fantastic three day weekend at Paradise Found. This house has everything you need for a great stay. We had a group of 13 adults in their early 30s/late 20s and it was perfect for a group trip of both couples and singles. The rooms were set up so you could have as little or as much time together as possible and we never felt cramped. The house is less than 5 minutes from both Timberline and Canaan Valley Resorts, so it was a perfect location. Laura, the owner, was great to work with. She responded in a timely manner, gave us all the information we needed, and the house was exactly as described. There's nothing quite like relaxing in a hot tub after a chilly day on the slopes or curling up in front of a fire and the house has everything you need! My group is already planning a trip back to the area next winter and we'll definitely be staying at Paradise Found."

"A true Oasis of Beauty and Relaxation
This cabin possesses the rare combination of rusticity and urbanity. It is warm, homey and pastoral while possessing the sophistication and all the conveniences of a city home. Moreover, the location is ideal, nestled among trees and across from a pasture of rollicking horses who seem to enjoy providing live entertainment as one sips their favorite beverage on the splendid wrap around deck or cooks a favorite meal on the gas grill.
Inside this very clean, cozy and tastefully appointed cabin one finds a functional and well stocked kitchen, large dining table, a comfortable living area with a stone fireplace and flat screen television. The master bedroom is a good size with a closet and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom is large and has a washer and dryer. The loft is quaint with a futon bed and two bunk beds and a closet. The AC and heating were easy to use and efficient. In short, this cabin had everything we needed for our wonderful mini-vacation.
The location is also perfect for all that the Canaan Valley has to offer. The Black Bear property and grounds are well maintained providing the amenities described.
We were sent thorough and easy instructions for our pre-rrival, stay and departure. The owner/rental manager was extremely professional and accommodating, responding quickly to our emails and needs. Truly excellent service with a personal touch.
I would highly recommend this property for a couple or family looking for a rustic getaway with all the conveniences of a city home. In short, this is a wonderful, clean and very comfortable cabin in a terrific location. We can’t wait to return!"
