About Michelle

My sister, Missy and I, manage our family home. Missy lives in Ripley, WV with her husband, Rob and their dog Brock. I live in Morgantown, WV with my two kids, Madison and Matthew. I'm a graduate of WVU and now work there in the Education department. This home was the dream of our parents, which started more than 30 years ago.

Michelle purchased this house in 2011

Why Michelle chose Davis

We realize you have many options to choose from! So, let us tell you why we've decided to offer our home to you. As Missy and I vacation with our families across the US, we have come to value the home owners who have thought of everything to make our stay comfortable... from extra throw blankets, games and toys for your kids, crock pots and ample dishes, we hope we've thought of everything to help you feel at home in our home! Its brand new, yet very simple. If there's something you don't love, we want to hear about it, so we can try to change it for our future guests!

What makes this house unique

You'll love our private lot and the overwhelming quiet from the front porch. Memories will be made sitting around the fire, and playing board games in our game room. We sincerely hope you'll take a leisurely walk around the property and down the road... you never know what you might see along the way!

Christmas Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very comfortable. The house is very well equipped with everything a family needs for a comfortable stay. Even though it was bitterly cold outside, we were very cozy inside. Michelle was very easy to work with and responded quickly to inquires both before we went to Davis and upon our arrival.The location between two ski resorts is excellent. We could see the slopes from both resorts from the living room window.

Cozy and Spacious!

  • 5 of 5

Michelle was a very accommodating host. The home was clean and spacious. It was very well stocked in the kitchen and game closet. It was very close to both ski resorts and convenient. We loved the store that was close by and big John’s family restaurant.

Fabulous Mountain Home

  • 4 of 5

Michelle was very easy to work with and the rental house was very nice! When we first arrived, the grass hadn't been mowed and was quite long but as soon as Michelle found out about it, she got right on it and got someone out there. To her defense, she had just hired a new cleaning crew and I believe there was a mixup. The house was huge and very clean. We had 8 people and there was plenty of room for all of us. The 4 bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs worked out great, as my mom couldn't climb the stairs and she liked her own little space downstairs. I was quite surprised at the size of the master bedroom - VERY spacious. Loved the hardwood floors downstairs and the large kitchen. The mountain view from the front deck was stunning and we sure did enjoy sitting around the fire pit every night and totally relaxing! We enjoyed playing ping pong and corn hole. We visited the Blackwater Falls, Canaan Valley State Park, went fishing, rode the ski lift and went through the Seneca Caverns. We would like to go back and stay sometime in the fall. We received our security deposit in a timely fashion. A couple things that should be looked at are the kitchen faucet that leaks and the kitchen stove knobs are loose and sometimes you can't tell if the gas burner is on or off. Overall, our family had a great time and would definitely stay in this house again. Thanks, Michelle!

Family Ski Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a weekend ski getaway for my family (myself, my wife, three adult children, their significant others, and three grandchildren). The property was clean, spacious and well maintained. The pictures accurately portray the property. It was easy to find, close to both ski slopes, and I really liked the fact is was in the valley rather than on the side of a hill as are a lot of properties in the are. The location was important to me given the winter driving conditions common to the area. The owners were very responsive and provided good service. I would highly recommend this property to anyone.
