"Clean - excellent location - peaceful! We plan to return again, our 3 year old keeps talking about wanting to go back to the mountains. He enjoyed playing in the steam beside the creek. Even though Shaver's Fork was really high we were still able to enjoy everything. Owner was very helpful and great to deal with."

"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!"

"We just returned from an amazing time at this chalet. As everyone else mentioned, the views can't be beat! The deck, hot tub, and view are perfect, and we loved how quiet it was there. The inside was very comfortable also. We barely used the living area, but the couch seemed comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed, and I was grateful for the thorough and accurate descriptions of what we'd find so we knew what to take with us...and take what you need because it's a trip to get to a grocery store. The downstairs bed was comfortable and the bathroom was as nice as described. Erika and Tim were extremely responsive before our stay and also when we had trouble locating something in the chalet. They contacted us right away to make sure everything was good. We went during the week, which made it especially quiet on the mountain. We didn't see anyone on our hikes, and The Woods golf course was pretty empty and a great deal...lunch there was good also if you don't want to fix all your own meals. As others mentioned, I wouldn't want to share this space with anyone who wasn't a close friend or family because the bedroom areas aren't very private, but it could be great for a family as long as you don't have young kids (the stairs are steep). As described, there's no internet (which makes it more of a getaway), and our phones (Verizon) didn't work well either, but good enough to get a call or email out when we needed...with a little patience. This is a true getaway, and we had to extend our stay by a day because we really didn't want to leave! Thanks for sharing your little piece of heaven."

"Everything was awesome! Our family of five really enjoyed our stay. The cabin is completely stocked with everything you. The cabin is absolutely beautiful and set on a wonderful piece of property.
During our stay we went zip lining, rafting, hiking and rented a pontoon boat. The cabin is conveniently located close to all the activities. We were within a 10 drive to everything.
My 13 year old son loved the fire pit which we were able to enjoy every night. All three of our boys headed to the top of the hill to watch the recent meteor shower while my wife and I stayed by the fire to watch the meteors.
Everything was perfect and we had a great time. Thank you for providing such great accommodations."
