Canaan Valley Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Beds/2 Baths, 1 Sleep Sofa, Sleeps 8, Private, Close to slopes

Beautiful Fall get-a-way. Come enjoy the Holidays at Touchstone. Now with new interstate, it is under three hours from DC or Balt.

Great place to spend your skiing holiday near the Timberline slopes.A serene, intimate, and beautifully furnished cabin in gated Old Timberline adjacent to its conservancy is nestled in Cannan Valley, WV. The secluded cabin, perfect for a honeymoon couple or those seeking refuge from the frantic pace of urban life is cool in the summer and has ample powder in the winter. Situated on five acres of wooded and open meadow lands with its own pond, the cabin has gorgeous sunset views over Spruce Island Lake and long views of the valley and the adjacent Cabin Mountain. Six miles of private trails at your doorstep, a short walk to Timberline Four Season slopes, ten minutes to Whitegrass Cross Country Center, or Cannan Valley Ski and Golf Resort. The cabin has been recently renovated, inside and out.

Hiking: Because you are renting in Old Timberline you will have access to the top of the mountain trails into Dolly Sods and a Fish and Wildlife access trail. The six miles of well maintained trails inside Timberline can be accessed on the path from the house to Spruce Island Lake.

Golf: The 18 hole championship course of The Canaan Valley Resort Park is ten minutes away. Frequent golf events are scheduled and open to the public. The course is set in the gentle rolling hills of Canaan Valley rimmed with mountains.

Ski: Canaan Valley is the most northern of the West Virginia ski resorts with three separate establishments - Canaan Valley Resort State Park, Timberline, and Whitegrass Cross County Ski Center. The Valley has been having record snowfalls. It will be a great winter.

About Maria Thacker

We love getting away to the outdoors in any season. This truly is our 'touchstone'. We love to hike particularly in Dolly Sods, around Seneca Rocks and even the six miles of Old Timberline trails which is accessed off our front deck.

Maria Thacker purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Maria Thacker chose Canaan Valley

Touchstone is the best of both worlds. It is private and secluded yet close to 'civilization' and the front gate for supplies and emergencies.

What makes this cabin unique

Timberline ski slopes are two minutes away, the lake is just beyond the front yard and the Timberline walking trail goes by our house.

Because of all the windows, you feel part of nature, no matter the season. We love seeing all the wildlife walking to and from the lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

...We loved the way your house focuses on the out of doors with all the windows in the dinning and living

room. We had a happy and peaceful there and would love to return.

This is a great place to vacation with grandchildren. Surrounded by fields, woods, pond and lake. Very private, but convenient. Deer came right up to the back deck. Hot tub was great and one can use all the facilities at the lodge (pool etc). Very comfortable.

Went by too fast!

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful setting! Now that I'm back in the 'burbs, my eyes are longing for those expansive vistas! Thanks to the owners & Timberline Realty for attentive service. House is beautiful, clean and cozy. Hiked Dolly Sods, Black Water Falls, and Lindy Point (not to be missed!) We'll definitely come again!

Included with our recent stay was plenty of snow, wildlife, peace and tranquility. This is a very clean rental with awesome views. The hot tub was exceptionally clean and warm. Thank you for opening up your house for us to experience. Would definitely consider renting again!

Thanks again!

Winter Haven

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful house in a beautiful setting. The house is clean, nicely maintained, and well-furnished with a wonderful wood-burning stove. The abundance of windows allows for great views from within the warmth of the house. The owner is very attentive and even called the evening we arrived to make sure everything was okay. The house is a short drive to Timberline ski resort (longer than a short walk, but the drive is quick). Other winter activities are also close by. We really enjoyed the horse-drawn sleigh ride at Timberline Stables. My family and I had a great trip and would love to go back!

Summer vacation

The location of the house is excellent, very private and yet close to the lake and a short walk or drive to the ski slopes. We had wonderful time and will be glad to go back again. The owner was vary attentive and accommodating. We saw plenty of wildlife from the deck.

Ski Weekend

  • 4 of 5
We had a good time at this cabin, and it is very close to the Timberline ski slopes. The kitchen and bathroom have new applicanes and fixtures, and the hot tub worked great! We even had deer walking through the back yard.

A couple of things to consider is this property does not have an address that can be mapped with mapquest or google maps, making it some what harder to find. The other is that the driveway slopes down, if you don't have chains or 4 wheel drive you may be stuck unable to get you car out of the driveway. If you don't have chains or 4 wheel drive don't go down the drive way, you can park at the entrace to the conservatory and walk to the cabin (about 3 blocks).

Owner's Response: Thank you for the comments for the property. This helps us create even greater holiday experiences. A note about the address, none of the properties beyond the gate in Old Timberline can be individually found through Map-quest. The alternative, is to use Timberline Four Season Ski Resort as the destination since we are practically next door.

When visiting the skiing high country of Canaan Valley, in January when heavy snows are predicted, it is advisable to check road conditions. The property in Old Timberline is on the valley floor, unlike most others which are on the side of the mountain. Even in this relatively flat terrain If snow is predicted, evasive actions should be considered.
