About The Owner

We live in Maryland, just a few hours away, and enjoy the opportunity to escape from the daily grind to Canaan Valley!

The Owner purchased this villa in 1997

Why The Owner chose Davis

We started visiting Canaan Valley in the early 1990's, and just fell in love with the laid back pace of the mountains. It's only 3 1/2 hours from DC or Baltimore, 3 hours from Pittsburgh, and yet light years away from the rat race! There are 3 ski areas, 2 state parks, and a national wildlife refuge within minutes of our front door, and a surprising number of good restaurants right nearby. ...and did I mention the trout fishing?!!

What makes this villa unique

Winter guests appreciate the excellent, level access in and out of our location, so a 4 wheel drive vehicle is not needed to get to and from the slopes during the snowy season. Our resort is meticulously plowed and you're on your way to skiing with no hassle.

And beyond winter, there really is everything you'd need in a four season, year round resort right on site, with an on-site restaurant and pub, outdoor heated pool in-season, tennis court, basketball, volleyball, picnic gazebo, horseshoes and so much more. The catch and release fishing pond is well stocked, and no license is required! Our guests enjoy a brisk walk around the resort in the morning, and the scenery is spectacular year round! Kids can roller skate or bike the private circle on their own while you relax on the deck!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We felt at home as soon as we stepped in the front door! Great location, clean, spacious (yet cozy), and well equipped. Enjoyed the remainder of the fall colors at Lindy Pt, Seneca Rocks, and Dolly Sods. Nice to come back to the wood fire on those cold nights... Thank you for the memories! Hope to come back really soon".

Great Last Minute Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked The Den a few days before we left for West Virginia and it couldn't have been a better experience. The owner responded right away to my request and we booked the condo within hours. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and took the time to answer my questions. The Den is a lovely, cozy, condo with great amenities. We enjoyed the pool and tennis courts and our boys loved fishing in the pond. We also enjoyed exploring the surrounding attractions - Canaan Valley Resort, Blackwater Falls, Smoke Hole Caverns and Seneca Park. There is a great "swimming hole" in Seneca that our boys enjoyed. West Virginia is beautiful. We were impressed with the lush green mountains and wildflowers. The towns of Davis and Thomas were quaint and we enjoyed the shops. Hellbenders, Siriani's Pizza and the ice cream shop across the street from Siriani's were very good. Davis, West Virginia was unknown to us until I came upon it on VRBO. If you enjoy fishing, hiking, sightseeing, kayaking, biking, antiquing and staying in a "home away from home" , The Den is the place for you.

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent three nights at The Den and it exceeded our expectations! Our trip was close to "last minute", and the owner was very quick to respond and very helpful in answering any questions I had. Booking was a breeze, and picking up the key at the property management company was quick and convenient. We found The Den to be clean, very nicely furnished and well equipped. We really enjoyed spending time reading on the deck and also found the open living room with high ceilings to be a nice alternative to being outside when it rained. (So nice to open the windows and let the cool mountain air in) The Den is in a "complex" that is just a lovely property with many amenities. The large heated pool was great, and we had it to ourselves! We also enjoyed exploring beautiful Canaan Valley and surrounding areas as well as some of the local restaurants. This place was perfect for us and I hope to have the opportunity to stay here again. I have already recommended The Den to family and friends!

The Den was the perfect get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our 2 small children had a wonderful extended weekend here. We loved that there was a lot to do right on the resort. Our girls loved the swimming pool (which we had to ourselves most of the time), and also the stocked pond was great for our 2 year old. She caught her first fish, and then very quickly her 2nd and 3rd and she was delighted!

We cooked all our meals at The Den and I was shocked at how well the kitchen was stocked. They literally had everything you could imagine available.

We traveled to Black Water Falls, and the Smoke Hole Caverns...definitely a must See!! Also saw some wildlife in the evening. It was a lovely time away and would most definitely stay again! Would highly recommend this place to others!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words and for taking the time to write a review! We love it when parents and kids have a good time here, and it sounds like a new fisherman has been "hooked" ! We hope you come back soon.

A great place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 5 days here for a "get away" vacation. Looking for some peace and quiet we intentionally came during the non ski season. The condo was well appointed with everything needed for a stress free vacation. A major plus was the comfortable furniture. We have stayed in some condos where the furniture was sagging or hard as stone. Not here!Very comfortable to sit and read, watch TV, or just relax.

The hills of WV are beautiful and we took tons of pictures during our short driving excursions each day. We visited Blackwater Falls, Dolly Sods, Seneca Rocks, Snowshoe Village, and the antique shops in Thomas.

We recommend this location to everyone.

The Den was a delight!

  • 5 of 5

This place was heaven. Couldn't be in a more beautiful area. It was so green and beautiful and quiet. We were there in June and we felt like we had the whole valley to ourselves. It was awesome. The Den is located within driving distance of so many fun things to see and do. It was packed with all the conveniences of home plus some! There were plenty of linens and lots of lamps and lighting plus ceiling fans everywhere to keep it cool. The washer and dryer were huge and wonderful as well. I could go on forever. We cooked all our meals at The Den and I was shocked at all the kitchen supplies-it was well stocked! My kids LOVED the pool and we somehow managed to get there everyday. We had the whole pool to ourselves every time! It was awesome. One of the highlights of our vacation for sure. The resort offered so many more activities and everything was so well cared for and in great condition. Would highly recommend The Den to anyone. It was an absolute delight to be there for the week!
