About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Serenely situated in one of the best kept secrets in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area is Canaan Valley, West Virginia. Year-round activities appeal to the weekend warrior or the weary soul looking for a little R&R.

If adventure is what you seek, Timberline and Canaan Valley slopes both await you. Imagine waking up in the midst of a squaw storm laying eight inches of fresh powder while the rest of the D.C. area experiences some rain. Unlike the numerous ski resorts in the area; you will be happily surprised that the wait is usually no more than five to ten minutes to get on a lift.

For rest and relaxation, you may decide to light a fire, put in a DVD or read a book, and spend the day in quiet tranquility.

After a full day of either activity or leisure, enjoy a hot cup of cocoa by a home built fire or a glass of wine along with a therapeutic bubble bath. The biggest decision of the evening is whether or not to enjoy a family meal at home or go out and experience one of a variety of restaurants for every budget.

During the summer, enjoy white water rafting down the Cheat River, horseback riding to the summit of Canaan valley, Euro tubing down the ski slopes, spelunking caverns in Dolly Sods, Euro Bunjee, mountain biking, or enjoy a day at a pro golf course.

If you want to kick back and relax, enjoy a day at our pool, play tennis, fish at our privately stocked pond or just relax on our extra large deck and surf the internet, read a good book, take a nap in fresh mountain air, or enjoy watching one of our DVDs.

Our chalet #27 has the best of both worlds. We have a spacious deck that backs up to a tree line in the summertime, but gives a beautiful view of the slopes during winter. Nearby is a national bird sanctuary where you can view bald eagles, ravens, and other elegant birds at your leisure.

At night, sit out on our deck and take in the night sky, unfettered by urban and suburban lights.

Our chalet is equipped with lots of extras including superb views, great books, games, and DVDs that will please everyone. We welcome guests for honeymoons, anniversaries, family reunions, or any occasion - special or ordinary.

An amenity worth noting is that our cabin is one of few in Canaan Valley equipped with central air conditioning. Many units state they have air conditioning, but it is usually nothing more than a cheap stand alone interior unit that really doesn't cool the cabin down much unlike ours which keeps the entire cabin comfortable especially during this SUPER HOT summer!

Unlike most VRBO inquiries; you will receive a prompt and professional response to your inquiry. You will receive A+ treatment from beginning to end which separates us from most everyone else you will encounter on VRBO. We are not in the business of renting a unit. We are in the business of giving you a memorable experience.

Feel free to contact us for arrangements and be sure to specify unit #27 when you make reservations.

Inquire specials! Restrictions apply. Call 304-866-4391 for discounts. Special Note: The cabin is currently for sale. We are happy to take reservations far in advance with the understanding that we may not be able to accommodate the rental should a sale occur. Should a sale occur, we will notify any renters if they are affected and attempt to transfer the rental to the new owner, find comparable accommodations with another unit in the resort, or refund your money. Thanks for understanding.

What makes this cabin unique

Our chalet is nestled right at the crest of Black Bear Resort. We have an extra large deck that backs up to woods (it quite literally feels like a tree house). During the winter, it is easy to get out of the resort and bee line it right to the ski resorts without having to wait for the snow plow to come by. Our home is family friendly and is equipped with books, DVDs, lots of games, and wireless internet access. We are one of few units with a mud room (which is quite useful in the winter time) and also have central air conditioning so you can remain comfortable year round. Everyone comments on how much they enjoy our amenities and thanks us for sharing our home with them. It is kid friendly, pet friendly, and even had a group of friends from around the world meet up at our cabin and comment what a peaceful and serene setting for a reunion.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our relaxing stay in this cozy cabin during a wekend of great music at the Purple Fiddle in nearby Thomas, WV. Our return trip was delayed due to some unexpected snow, but the owners graciously extended our stay for a few hours at no charge so that we were able to leave safely. We look forward to staying here in the future!

Needs work

  • 2 of 5

Decent accommadation but I honestly couldn't recommend it.

1. Grill was inoperable and no attempt was made by owner to fix/substitute.

2. Pot & pans were the worst I have ever seen in a rental; some un-useable.

3. Living room TV area had persistent and quite noticeable damp-odor smell throughout our stay.

4. Downstairs bed mattress and linens soiled/shop worn and need replacement.

Owner's Response: We are sorry your stay was unpleasant. The only issue brought to our attention was the grill which was only mentioned after your stay and we had the problem corrected. We have made a decision to change housekeeping. We will address the other issues in your comments and appreciate your feedback in helping us make this more pleasant to future guests
