About the property


Yes, it is heaven and you will be addicted the minute you step foot into the Valley. If you plan on an adventure or just a whole lot of R&R, you have made the right decision. First of all, enjoy your cup of java in the morning and imagine that you're an eagle soaring over the most amazing scenery that God has bestowed upon us; that's what you will experience here at Black Bear.

Black Bear Resort offers plenty to keep you busy with: fishing, hiking, putt-putt, swimming and tennis courts. The lodge has games, a pool table and a warm, inviting fireplace. Bring a book and relax at the gazebo, and oh, don't forget to use one of the fire pits at night while you reach out and grab a star or two.

Outside of Black bear is a whole big adventure with Canaan Valley's Wildlife Refuge that habitats over 150 bird species, Canaan Valley Resort, Blackwater Falls State Park and Timberline Ski Resort. Visit the historic towns of Davis and Thomas with their unique shops, cafes, and antique stores. The Purple Fiddle in Thomas offers a blend of alt-country music & Whitegrass Cross Country Ski Center is proud of their organic cuisine. Dolly Sods is nature at her finest and Mt. Storm Lake (20 min) has a public boat access.

Seneca Rock is a hiker's paradise and horseback riding with in a few miles. Sooo much to do so be sure to stay awhile.

We have thoughtfully decorated and designed our chalet so we can meet your needs. We would love for you to come visit and take a break from everyday worries. If you have any special requests (honeymoon, birthdays, anniversaries, or special getaways), give me a call.

Thanks and we hope to see you soon be sure to ask for Chalet #88. Special discounts are available right now ! Please be aware the home owner, Lisa Kingsbury will be the only person taking any kind of payment for this rental property. Please call Lisa if you have any questions.

Clean, well appointed home, perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Our party had an excellent time at the Butterfly Chalet. The kitchen was very well designed and allowed for cooking multiple large meals throughout our stay. The two balconies let us spend a lot of good time eating and drinking outside. Owner is very responsive. Highly reccomended!

Beautiful home in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Black Bear Resort. We’ve been to this area many times but these accomdations were new to us. I will say that some maintenance would be fitting- tubs that wouldn’t hold water, windows that wouldn’t open, faucets that were sub-par to the quality of this luxury home. Overall though this home was a joy for our family of 7.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing to stay at the Butterfly Chalet. We appreciate your feedback. We will make sure to take care of any concerns. The stoppers for the tubs are sometimes unscrewed and then it makes it hard to get them back on track so we will be heading that way to drop off a simple and easy stopper for all. We do have the window gear ordered and we will have maintenance be sure to fix it asap. The faucet leak has been fixed and we thank you for letting us know. We try to make it is nice as a place that we would like to visit. We are happy to know that you find our home luxurious and that was enjoyed by your family. Thank you again for the feedback and kind words of our home.

Fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a mini family reunion - 4 kids and 4 adults. There was plenty of room in the house, and everything was clean. The quality of the construction of the house is very high, and the beds were comfortable. We used the house as a base for exploring the Dolly Sods in August, and would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Owner is wonderful to work with. Very quick response time. Place is as described and very nice. Plenty of room. Kitchen was awesome - had everything we needed and then some. Beds were comfortable. Tub in master is awesome!! The resort is very quiet and peaceful. Keypad on door is a huge plus - no worrying about keys. Entry room was nice place to store golf clubs and suitcases. Kids loved the pool. Fishing spots right on property. Fire pit was great for s'mores - there are 2 close by. Loved sitting outside at night looking at the stars. We visited Blackwater Falls State Park, the towns of Davis and Thomas and went kayaking on the Cheat River. As for the internet - yes, it can be go in and out - however - owner states that up front. We didn't really have an issue with it. A couple nights it cut on and off, but we weren't on vacation to be be glued to the internet...

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing to stay at the Butterfly Chalet in Canaan Valley. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the area. Blackwater Falls is such an awesome place to take the family. I have always wanted to kayak the Cheat and thanks for the reminder. The fire pits are one of our favs and then we come back to star gaze on the deck. Thank you again for staying with us. Come back soon!

We enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, the kitchen was well stocked, and the beds were very comfortable. We liked the layout and the attached bathrooms. Having the towels and linens provided was a plus! The pool was bigger than expected with plenty of chairs and tables with umbrellas. This is a great place to relax while enjoying the comforts the house/deck afford. It's minutes to Davis and Thomas, WZ. We drove to Thomas for a fantastic display of fireworks. We would stay here again.

Beautifully decorated and cozy house with everything we needed!

  • 4 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at the Butterfly Chalet. The weather offered such a reprieve from the hot summer weather we are used to. It was easy to feel at home there with everything we needed from a fully stocked kitchen, to multiple televisions to a beautiful deck to enjoy our morning coffee. We really enjoyed the large outdoor pool and the kids played many rounds of putt putt golf! We were so close to multiple hiking trails with gorgeous views and it was nice to come home and just cook in and relax like we were at home. We would recommend the butterfly chalet to anyone! The only negative were the construction crews next door, but it looked like they should be finishing up soon :)

Owner's Response: Maggie and family, We are so glad to hear that you got to enjoy the beauty of Canaan Valley and the amenities of Black Bear Resort. I hope you got a chance to use the fire pits and the fishing ponds. We thank you for taking great care of the place. I did get a chance to go up and visit this past weekend and yes the construction is finally finishing up. They had a few things that prolonged the finish. The good news is that it is was the last house. Thank you again for choosing the Butterfly Chalet for your vacation stay. The Kingsbury's
