Summer & Winter Get-a-way. Read our reviews. We swear we didn't write them.

This large spacious lodge is 4 hours or less driving distance from the Baltimore, Washington, Northern Virginia areas. The Golden Retreat has plenty of room to relax, move around and enjoy nature's year round adventures. This area is known for tons of snow, down hill and cross country skiing. Relax in the 7 person hot tub (during ski season) with a glass of wine while soothing your sore muscles. We have many more pictures, both internal or external if you want them. Just email us.

In the summer, Dolly Sods provides some of the East Coast's best hiking, biking (road & mountain), bird watching and white water rafting. The hot tub is normally closed during the months of July and August.

Read our reviews. We know you will want to return year after year. Pet and kid friendly. No cats please. Owners keep a very clean house due to allergies. No smoking please. NO SMOKING. Please contact Mark and Katie if you need additional information including bed room configurations, more pictures, etc. Thank you.

About Katie Milleker

We love the woods, outdoors, stars, quiet, clean air, and the opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of our fast paced and hectic lives. We have yet to decide what is better, summer or winter. Both have lots to offer. Katie loves to cross county ski at Whitegrass or downhill at Timberline and Mark likes the excitement of Class 5 white water rafting, hiking and camping. Both like relaxing walks with the dog.

Katie Milleker purchased this house in 2010

Why Katie Milleker chose Canaan Valley

Great outdoors wonderland and place to host a large group. This is the place for family reunions. We love outdoor sports, relaxing in the hot tub, a safe, fun place for the kids and lots of places to walk the dogs.

What makes this house unique

This Golden Retreat has plenty of room to move around and host lots of family and friends. Enjoy the fresh air, clean water and unlimited outdoor activities. Leave your mobile device at home. Relax, read a book, watch a movie, play some pool/table tennis, foosball, soak in the hot tub (during ski season), drink a glass of wine and enjoy the stars and peace and quiet.

Lots of space and character - Great game room!

  • 5 of 5

The owners couldn't have been more helpful. They were very responsive and answered all our questions. When we arrived, we had more questions (we tend to be high maintenance quest). Again, they called us right back and answered our questions. The price was right and we will be back. Highly recommend for large families. Thanks Mark & Katie.

Wonderful house, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Golden Retreat. Large group, big house, fantastic game room, nice hot tub, excellent views, and lots of snow. Would definitely recommend 4WD for the driveway in winter time. Katie was super responsive and a great liaison. Would definitely stay again!

Great time

  • 5 of 5

4 families of 4 met in the Mountains and had a great weekend. The kitchen, living room and game room upstairs gave everybody plenty of room to to have a good time without being in each others space. All of the rooms are nicely equipped/furnished. The owners were very friendly and easy to work with to make sure our visit was successful as possible.

Great House, Perfect for Fun with Family and Friends

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house and will rent again, unfortunately our preferred time is dead of winter with lots of snow. All have 4x4 but the drive is very steep and with a turn at the top so ice and packed snow is a major issue even with plowing. Next year we will bring chains for our tires and extra sand to get traction. The hot tub helped with our sore backs from pushing and pulling vehicles. The homeowner did arrange for a plow but with mid to late morning service we would have missed half our day of skiing. Another major plus is we could bring our dogs who loved the snow. Again the house is hands down, GREAT!
