Amazing and spacious home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our Thanksgiving weekend stay at this amazing and spacious home! The layout of this house makes it perfect for large groups. We loved that the adults could hang out on the main floor and the kids spent their time downstairs. There are so many beds (trundle beds, too!) We couldn't believe how warm the house was, even the basement was warm, which is so nice for WV winters! Fantastic furnace! There were so many extra blankets provided in closets by the owner, which is very nice, but we didn't even need them. The house was centrally located with Canaan Valley to one side and the adorable towns of Davis and Thomas to the other side. The sunrise views across the lake were beautiful. There is even a trail that is just steps away from the house that goes around the lake. The runners in our family took advantage of that! We will 100% be back. One of our favorite family trips ever, in large part due to this perfect home!

Best house on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week's stay at this beautiful home. We were a group of 14. There was plenty of room to spread out but we were still able to have our meals and play games together. We have rented many homes over the years, and I can honestly say, this was by far, the most comfortable and well stocked home we've ever had the pleasure of renting. The furniture and beds were very comfortable. The kitchenware was plentiful and top of the line. We used the boats, kayaks and paddle boards every day. Fishing and swimming right outside the door. Downstairs had a pool table, shuffleboard, kitchenette, radio, TV. Had a campfire and made S'mores. Hot tub was wonderful. Within 10 minutes of the house, we went horseback riding; hiking to the beautiful Blackwater Falls; and shooting at the ski resort. Canaan Valley Resort has many amenities you can use for a small fee, including a large outdoor pool for $5/day; small gym; indoor pool; sauna, etc. Best house we've rented - Colleen - the owner - was very responsive and truly a pleasure to deal with. We highly recommend this home without reservation. Many memories were made in this wonderful home.

Spacious ski home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at this beautiful home in February 2017. It was spacious - plenty of room and bathrooms for everyone to have privacy. Everything was clean and the kitchen was well-equipped. The house is only a few minutes away from skiing at Timberline and Canaan. The great room is spectacular - the two-story ceiling and fireplace are gorgeous - could have sat there reading a book all day. The basement/game room has a pool table and shuffle board, which the grownups (and kids) loved. Owners were responsive and friendly. Highly recommend this property.

Christmas in Canaan Valley

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas in this lovely house with our 4 grown children and their significant others. There was plenty of room to spread out with some folks holding yoga sessions in the downstairs game room while others got out their guitars and sang upstairs in the big room. The large pull out cocktail table in the big room was perfect to work on a 2000 piece puzzle. The kitchen was well equipped. The owner was very helpful and prompt in replying to questions. The house has 5-queen or king bed separate bedrooms so it was perfect for a large group of couples. The lake was beautiful and you could walk all around it. There was 8 inches of fresh snow the day we arrived, and it snowed the whole time we were there. We took advantage of the skiing at WHITEGRASS which is an awesome cross country ski area in The VALLEY. We had great in-house thai massages by a local therapist. There is plenty to do in the area from nightly music at the Purple Fiddle in nearby Davis to all the outdoor attractions nearby. I must confess that we all enjoyed getting to spend time together so much that we didn't stray from the house much. And for just spending time together, this house was perfect! I would strongly recommend this property!

Lakefront property in newer private community on 12 acre lake. 2 non-motorized boats for fishing in stocked lake, kayaks, and paddleboards. Great year round location with hiking, boating and fishing in the summer and a short drive to the slopes in the winter.
