BLACK BEAR CANAAN VALLEY, WEST VIRGINIA CENTRAL AIR MILITARY AND OTHER DISCOUNTS

Canaan Valley Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Serenely situated in one of the best kept secrets in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area is Canaan Valley, West Virginia. Year-round activities appeal to the weekend warrior or the weary soul looking for a little R&R.

If adventure is what you seek, Timberline and Canaan Valley slopes both await you. Imagine waking up in the midst of a squaw storm laying eight inches of fresh powder while the rest of the D.C. area experiences some rain. Unlike the numerous ski resorts in the area; you will be happily surprised that the wait is usually no more than five to ten minutes to get on a lift.

For rest and relaxation, you may decide to light a fire, put in a DVD or read a book, and spend the day in quiet tranquility.

After a full day of either activity or leisure, enjoy a hot cup of cocoa by a home built fire or a glass of wine along with a therapeutic bubble bath. The biggest decision of the evening is whether or not to enjoy a family meal at home or go out and experience one of a variety of restaurants for every budget.

During the summer, enjoy white water rafting down the Cheat River, horseback riding to the summit of Canaan valley, Euro tubing down the ski slopes, spelunking caverns in Dolly Sods, Euro Bunjee, mountain biking, or enjoy a day at a pro golf course.

If you want to kick back and relax, enjoy a day at our pool, play tennis, fish at our privately stocked pond or just relax on our extra large deck and surf the internet, read a good book, take a nap in fresh mountain air, or enjoy watching one of our DVDs.

Our chalet #27 has the best of both worlds. We have a spacious deck that backs up to a tree line in the summertime, but gives a beautiful view of the slopes during winter. Nearby is a national bird sanctuary where you can view bald eagles, ravens, and other elegant birds at your leisure.

At night, sit out on our deck and take in the night sky, unfettered by urban and suburban lights.

Our chalet is equipped with lots of extras including superb views, great books, games, and DVDs that will please everyone. We welcome guests for honeymoons, anniversaries, family reunions, or any occasion - special or ordinary.

An amenity worth noting is that our cabin is one of few in Canaan Valley equipped with central air conditioning. Many units state they have air conditioning, but it is usually nothing more than a cheap stand alone interor unit that really doesn't cool the cabin down much unlike ours which keeps the entire cabin comfortable especially during this SUPER HOT summer! We also should add a disclaimer about internet service. It is running at the fastest speeds available in the area. We just upgraded our Wi-Fi to run at 6x the speed of other units of the area, but it is a rural area and may not be as fast as your home.

Unlike most VRBO inquiries; you will receive a prompt and professional response to your inquiry. You will receive A+ treatment from beginning to end which separates us from most everyone else you will encounter on VRBO. We are not in the business of renting a unit. We are in the business of giving you a memorable experience.

Feel free to contact us for arrangements and be sure to specify unit #27 when you make reservations.

Inquire about military discounts and specials! (Note: Discounts and specials do not apply from Dec 20 to Jan 2, MLK Holiday and President's Day).

About A.D. Valentine

We are just your typical all American family. My wife and I went to the same Elementary School, same Church, Jr. High, High School, and worked at the same place as teenagers and basically ignored each other like the plague. College rolled around and we became best friends. The friendship grew into love and we should be sitting on a couch telling our story from 'When Harry Met Sally'. We have 3 beautiful children. A son in college, a teenage daughter who would like to run away and become a gypsy, and the baby of the family...another son who is going into High School

A.D. Valentine purchased this cabin in 2006

Why A.D. Valentine chose Canaan Valley

2005 marked our 13th Wedding Anniversary...no superstition there and we celebrated by going to Canaan Valley on a ski trip (I had never been skiing before). I was the one who couldn't get off the bunny slope lift without falling down and bringing the lift to a grinding halt over and over. By the end of the day, I was so popular at the bunny slopes, I had two escorts with red crosses on their ski jackets following me around for the rest of the day like KGB operatives or members of the Swiss Army Guard protecting the Vatican. Needless to say I mastered the Bunny Slopes and moved on to the horrific beginner course called the 'Salamander' I was told it was a great training course and would learn to ski with the big boys. I was fine at the beginning until the Blue and Black Diamond courses intersected and prayed to just make it down without landing in a wealthy ski slope owning hot tub. I enjoy intermediate courses now and am sure I could do black diamonds, but no need to brag about my skiing skills. I loved the unique aspects of Black Bear compared to every other place in Canaan, bought the chalet in 2006 and love going up there as much as I can all times of the year.

What makes this cabin unique

Our chalet is nestled right at the crest of Black Bear Resort. We have an extra large deck that backs up to woods (it quite literally feels like a tree house). During the winter, it is easy to get out of the resort and bee line it right to the ski resorts without having to wait for the snow plow to come by. Our home is family friendly and is equipped with books, DVDs, lot's of games, and wireless internet access. We are one of few units with a mud room (which is quite useful in the winter time) and also have central air conditioning so you can remain comfortable year round. Everyone comments on how much they enjoy our amenities and thanks us for sharing our home with them. It is kid friendly, pet friendly, and even had a group of friends from around the world meet up at our cabin and comment what a peaceful and serene setting for a reunion.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our relaxing stay in this cozy cabin during a wekend of great music at the Purple Fiddle in nearby Thomas, WV. Our return trip was delayed due to some unexpected snow, but the owners graciously extended our stay for a few hours at no charge so that we were able to leave safely. We look forward to staying here in the future!

Cozy cabin in activity-filled resort

  • 3 of 5
First of all let me say that my family & I truly enjoyed the resort that this cabin is a part of. Large outdoor swimming pool, putt putt, tennis courts, fishing ponds, walking trails, playground. Excellent & free activities for families on a budget. We swam daily & did many of the other activities too. The resort deserves a high rating & the grounds seem to be well-kept. Our cabin was cozy & met all the needs we had. Cable worked well, dishwasher, & washer & dryer were helpful for washing clothes and not having to go home with a pile of dirty laundry. It really met out needs but we did have some issues. Number one being that we really don't feel like it was cleaned as adequately as we'd have liked. We discovered several things during our stay that led us to believe the bare minimum was done. A half-eaten pizza remained in the oven for us ??? I discovered it when I turned the oven on & smelled something burning. There was a used band-aid on one of the bunk beds in the loft in addition to a t-shirt under one of the loft beds that was left behind by a past patron. Although these things may seem minor they left us with the impression that the cleaning was done quickly with little to no observation for anything extra. We also selected this cabin mainly because we dislike be uncomfortable on vacation & need central air especially in the middle of July. This cabin featured central A/C; however, it was not functioning upon our arrival. The owner did make attempts to have it repaired however even after contractors came out to fix it it still was not functioning. When we let the owner know his response was "the contractors said it was fixed". So basically he didn't believe us & that was that. We were offered a small refund for the inconvenience but it hardly made up for the time I spend texting the owner, talking to him on the phone & then updating him about whether it was working or not. Not to mention we wanted the central A/C more than any other feature so the minimal refund really didn't offset the inconveniences & discomfort. That was more than a little frustrating. All in all we would stay at Black Bear again but we would not select this unit.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback. We apologize that the A/C unit was not working properly on Sunday. We did have a contractor out there first thing Monday morning who fixed the problem and stopped by again later to confirm that the A/C was working properly. None of the cleaning concerns were mentioned to us until we read it in this review. We take a lot of pride in our cabin as indicated by other reviews. We sent a partial refund for the inconvenience and again apologize that the one day turnaround time did not meet your expectation.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Really enjoyed the home away from home. Hit the ski slopes at the end of ski season and enjoyed beverages over a real wood fireplace! My dogs loved the oversized porch and the views were great. Impeccable service. Can't wait to come back during the summer to enjoy the resort pool, fishing pond, etc.

Nice getaway

  • 4 of 5
What a wonderful retreat for us and our dog. We beat the summer DC heat and found coolness in Canaan Valley. The cabin is very comfortable, clean, and well equipped for a stay, and conveniently located to the little towns and hiking. It's also quiet, even though it's next to a road and at the edge of a community. We really enjoyed it as a place to get away from it all.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review. Just to clarify on the location, we specifically picked a cabin at the top of the resort due to its superb views, quietness, and easy access to the ski resorts. The road is a little country road that is rarely used (not the main one leading to the ski resorts), but will link up with the main road to the ski resorts a few miles down the road past a couple of farms. While everyone else is waiting for the big hills in the resort to be plowed, skiiers can just hop in the car and head for the resorts without waiting. Thanks again and hope you will be back for future visit with us.

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful cabin for 4 days and I can honestly say it was wonderful Our first reaction was WOW and we kept saying it as we went room to room.. When you walk in you feel right at home and everything you need is available to you to use, from the kitchen to the bathroom. There was nothing we needed that we didn't have. It is beautifully decorated. There is a wonderful collection of books and movies. I have stayed at other cabins at this resort and bar none, this one was the best. The view from the deck was beautiful and you feel pure peace by looking at the mountains that surround you. The owner was wonderful to work with and from now this our go to place.. I promise you will love this cabin..

A Great Little Cabin

  • 4 of 5
My wife, myself and our two dogs stayed here over the 4th of July weekend and had a great time. A full kitchen and lots of space meant that we had everything we needed right there. The beds were comfy, the couches great and the deck was amazing...no really, the deck is the best part. And it was easily gated off, so our city dogs could run around outside and experience a bit of nature.

Two downsides: the internet was incredibly, almost unusably, slow. I know the cabins in the middle of no where, but if wireless internet is advertised, it should probably be better than that. Also, and this is my fault, I didn't realize when I booked this that its not just a cabin the woods, but part of the Black Bear Resort. This had its bonuses, including the pool, but it wasn't as isolated as we were expecting.

But overall, this place is great. Stay here if you want a quiet, but not too quiet, time in West Virginia.
