traveler reviews for this canaan valley house rental

Amazingly relaxing vacation home!

Review submitted: August 1, 2012   Date of arrival: July 27, 2012

This home was better than any other home we ever rented!!! Even better than the beach at North Carolina:) Very clean and livable home. Didn't need to go anywhere! Even a doggie 'playground.' The ponds were fun for all, including the dogs! Loved the quaint town of Elkins so close to the home. Enjoyed the short drive to dolly sods and Bear Heaven. We all enjoyed the pool table, foosball and shuffleboard as well as the HBO! Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful home. First time ever we didn't want to leave...could actually live here!

Peaceful Bliss

Review submitted: December 29, 2011   Date of arrival: December 26, 2011

Looking for a get-a-way to please everyone in the family? One that offers tranquility, quiet places and privacy? Look no further!!!! This unassuming home is right in the middle of some of the most beautiful geographically unique mountains that the Monongahela National Forest has to offer. The house itself is well away from the neighbors so enjoy the quiet, the rooms offer lots of space for a large family to spread out as well as get together to enjoy each other's company. We had from age 4 to 64 in our group and everyone was happy!! There's so much to do outdoors and in, you'll not be able to take it all in on your first visit; you'll definitely want to comeback. We hoped for a great winter vacation, but the weather was milder than expected for December so we were happy for the pool table, hot tub and BIG kitchen table suitable for a large game of dominoes or a busy craft project. If you're into geocaching you'll be in paradise even if you don't find the caches the scenery is worth the hike! We also enjoyed a day skiing at Timberline just a short drive from the house. The best feature of this house is the owner's willingness to accommodate pets; Best vacation ever b/c we had our lovely goldens with us - no kennel takes as good of care of your pets as you!

More Beautiful than I Imagined!

Review submitted: May 24, 2011   Date of arrival: May 18, 2011

This home's secluded location and the property itself surpassed any expectations we had. The natural beauty surrounded us and there was much to explore without leaving the property. We traveled with four girls ranging in age 12-1. We never once heard an "I'm bored" the entire 3 days/nights we were there. The pond is well stocked, even the 4 year old had no trouble catching several fish in less than an hour. The streams/waterfalls were beautiful. Our favorite was to hike up the mountain behind the house just to enjoy the view and the wildflowers growing there. I would love to see the wild roses in bloom up there but we were early in season.

The house itself was homey and comfortable. There was plenty of room for us (three adults and four children). The kitchen had all the appliances and utensils need to make all our meals and the dishes were very nice. The house, much like the property, is not overly manicured. If you are looking for a brand new, immaculate home, this is not the one for you.It is nothing like a resort. It felt like a home, not a hotel; we all really liked that. The foosball table, pool table and hot tub were wonderful as well. There was something to do right up to bedtime.

We did travel to Black Water Falls and Seneca Caverns. Both were about a 45 minute scenic drive through the mountains. Just beautiful drives! Black Water was breathtakingly beautiful and the cavern was exciting, even for the girls. They loved wearing hardhats and exploring the cave. The staff there were all very friendly and helpful.

Mike and Shana were quick to respond to all my emails and most helpful and friendly.

We had a fantastic family vacation and we have every intention of returning.
