About Karen Williams

Family originally from the midwest who found ourselves in the busy DC metropolitan area. We looked for a place where we could enjoy nature, bond as a family and enjoy the great outdoors. We found it in the Canaan Valley!

Karen Williams purchased this house in 1995

Why Karen Williams chose Canaan Valley

Our family of five fell in love with the entire area. It is such a naturally beautiful area with trees that you would expect to see in Canada. There is only one stoplight in the county and the pace of life is so relaxed. Your focus is different here - the beauty of new snow, the sound of Canada Geese, the sound of the fire crackling in the fireplace. This has been such a great way to decompress from our hectic lives in Northern Virginia. The kids are older now but we will always have fond memories of the the great times we shared there.

Canine Haven for the Eagles!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Eagle's Haven in Feb 2014. Though some of our group couldn't make it at the last minute, even if they had - this house would still have been more than we needed! We loved the spacious rooms.. Open living room/dining/kitchen area surrounded by the wonderful gated deck. The canines loved sunbathing in that deck while we enjoyed the hot tub, though we thought something to block the almost constant breeze from chilling you so much while in the hot tub would have made it feel warmer. Brr! Loved the grill on the deck right outside from the kitchen. We thought about making a fire in the fire ring, but it was a bit chilly and damp to gather wood. Better instructions, maybe a diagram, to figure out how to turn the shower on in the downstairs bathroom would have helped a great deal too. The coffee pot leaked when we first used it, and the new one was delivered the next morning. (We informed them about midday/evening time.) The downstairs movie viewing and upstairs gaming time were both hits! People and canines all had a great time! Hope we get the chance to stay again! And maybe next time we will make it to the ponds, (signs showing which way to go would help.. Though the slick roads would have kept us either way I think.) The grill on the deck near the kitchen was nice too. Great views. Wish there was more snow. We all hope to have a return trip to Eagle's Haven. It's more house than we need, though it was great to take the whole family. (Canines =D )

Summer Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had some plumbing issues that were resolved very promptly by maintenance staff. The support staff overall was absolutely wonderful. Outside the very-promptly resolved plumbing issues, the cabin was quite relaxing and well-stocked, definitely home away from home. Nice and quiet, with a stream right next to the cabin. We really enjoyed canoeing on the lake, being so close to Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge, and having such super-easy access to Dolly Sods (within Timberline development). The WIFI worked fine. Nicely decorated, well-lit interior. Pet-friendly means dog-friendly, we inquired on bringing our cat and were told no cats. Did end up bringing a dog. Would recommend, but pet-friendly should be changed to dog-friendly.

Loved this house!

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 8, including a young teenager, and two 70-something year olds, and this house was just perfect. With 5 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, there was plenty of space for everybody. The kitchen is not huge, but it is more than well-stocked, with several full sets of dishes, and a nice assortment of pots and pans. The house has lots of storage space in general, with a dresser and full-size closets in each bedroom. Unfortunately, we didn't have great weather for our visit, so we weren't able to take full advantage of the lake and hiking trails, etc. But we certainly enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere, especially the large, covered porch, which is actually so deep as to be able to sit out there during a pretty strong rain storm and not get wet. The owner was very responsive to questions, both about the house itself, as well as the general area. The location is a bit remote, which we enjoyed, but there are 2 convenience stores within 10-15 minutes, and a full grocery store about 25 minutes away, as well as some good local restaurants. We would all go back to this house in a heartbeat, and I really hope that we get the opportunity!!

Our review

  • 4 of 5
Great house, with wonderfully secluded location. We had a full crew and there was plenty of room for all. The use of the canoes was a great perk. We had a bear visit the driveway one evening and the kids loved looking for frogs in the pond on the lot. We got a kick out of the abundance of coffee machines at our disposal. Clearly a lot of like minded coffee drinkers rent this place.

Terrific Vacation Home

A wonderful, secluded & spacious home filled with tasteful charm that will invite you to relax! Sitting out on the porch your senses will experience the mountain air & the wildlife that make their home in the valley. With plenty of nearby activities such as horseback riding, canoeing, hiking, listening to live country music, antiquing and visiting the local towns of Davis & Thomas, you will also find that relaxation easily blends in with those activities!!
