About Pete Johnson

I run a small software company called Apollo Matrix in DC and raise 3 kids with my wife. I am a design hack who appreciates good design in things natural and man-made. And I enjoy pretty much all mountain sports.

Pete Johnson purchased this house in 2001

Why Pete Johnson chose Davis

Canaan Valley is a pristine alpine setting with exciting weather, wildlife, mountain streams, conifers, rocky landscapes, a clear sky and all the mountain sports I love. Canaan reminds me of the West. And with a new highway to Davis WV, it's only 3 hours from DC . I'll estimate that 25% of our guests in 2016 were repeat guests and that percentage is growing.

What makes this house unique

This is one of the most valuable lots in Timberline for good reason. And according to more than a few, the coolest house in the Valley... Large indoor common spaces with epic views of mountains, lakes, meadow and wildlife. This is Canaan Valley experienced to the fullest. Great family hiking right from the back door -- much of it within view of the house. From the house you have a 180 degree view of safe terrain for the kids to play out back. Skiing, Dolly Sods Wilderness, fishing, canoeing and much more within minutes.

Outstanding house in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this rental to do it justice. The interior is beautifully decorated, and the whole house audio is a great feature. The view out over the valley is amazing.

The area itself is outstanding in natural beauty with plenty to see and do.

The owner is amazing and super friendly. Any questions I had where answered quickly, and he was more then happy to make recommendations.

Grand, groovin' getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Do yourself a favor and rent Rock n Laurel! Couldn't recommend this property or owner Pete more. A true getaway from it all. Great place to relax, run the trails, play with the kids, listen to tunes, and make memories!

Beautiful cabin in scenic location

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is beautiful. We rented it to go skiing with two other families; there were nine people total, including three kids. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate, so we were unable to ski and spent more time in the cabin than originally anticipated. Despite this, the cabin is so large that we never felt cramped, and the cabin's amenities made the stay very enjoyable.

A Sprawling Mountain Chalet

  • 5 of 5

Rock-n-Laurel was the perfect place for a long weekend with our extended family of adult children and grandchildren! The house has multiple sitting areas to suit every and any need, with beautifully appointed rooms, making you feel right at home! The owners have a fully equipped kitchen with condiments and spices, as well as a family room of games and activities, adding that special touch for the already over-packed family! Staying here made an already wonderful trip magical! We hope to return again next year!

Spacious Luxurious House in a Great Setting

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The home actually seemed larger than it appears in the pictures. This home has been thoughtfully designed and beautifully appointed. There are many seating areas to relax and unwind, just on the main level. We spent hours sitting and enjoying the beautiful view out the back where deer were seen frequently. The bluetooth, whole house, music system was great. We had light snow while we were there, which created a great atmosphere. Pete was great with questions and advice. Highly recommend this place. Plan to book again.

White Grass Ski Touring Center is about 10 minutes down WV32. Yours is an ideal location for being out of the main stream but within minutes of all three ski areas. Ski them all!
