Canaan Valley House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Windsong is the perfect place to unwind and relax. Built for comfort, offering two great rooms (adults in one, children in another?), the house has been recently extensively remodeled. At that time, we added a large great room, replaced the siding with quarter log siding, and replaced all windows with Andersens. The house sits on two acres and overlooks a private pond. On the lower deck is the 8-person hot tub, where one can relax in the warm jetted water under the stars! The house features four bedrooms (two with a queen bed each, one with a king bed, and one with two twin beds), and two full baths (one with a double Jacuzzi and shower, the other with a tub/shower); each bathroom is roomy. The kitchen is fully equipped with a smooth-top stove and oven, microwave, dishwasher, large refrigerator/freezer, and all the kitchen gadgets needed for gourmet meals (even a cookbook library specializing in books on comfort food and ski weekend meals!). Amenities include wireless internet, satellite TV (two TVs, one a 40-inch flat screen Sony), a CD player, a DVD player, and a VCR/DVD player, washer/dryer, an 8-person hot tub, a woodstove, and a raised hearth stacked stone wood burning fireplace, and a POOL TABLE! Three ceiling fans, iron/ironing board, hairdryers in each bathroom, too. For many more photos of each room of the house, exterior shots showing views, and a layout of the house, please go to Timberline Four Seasons Realty's webpage, and look under Windsong.
There are two large decks -- one wraparound -- which overlook the private wooded pond area. Across from the front of the house is a beautiful serene mountain view.
All linens (sheets, blankets, towels, kitchen linens) are provided for guests' convenience. Also provided are soaps, shampoos and body lotions, and kitchen soaps and detergents and laundry detergent.
The house is charmingly decorated in a a cow motif -- the owners have been collecting cow items for over 25 years, and have amassed quite a collection!

Georgene and Vidal Falcon
Georgene and Vidal Falcon, Windsong's owners, bought the house in January of 1986, after falling in love with Canaan Valley. Over the years, our children have learned to ski at both ski areas in Canaan Valley, and we have spent many fun-filled days at Windsong with friends. We have updated and remodeled the house twice, and have tried to make it a charming, cozy, and comfortable house for ourselves and for our guests. Both Georgene and Vidal are retired from the Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington, DC, and were residents of the Alexandria, VA, area. In 2004, we retired, and moved to Elizabeth City, NC, bought an historic home (ca. 1798) and renovated it in order to fulfill our dream of owning a bed and breakfast which is now the Grice-Fearing House Bed and Breakfast, which opened in 2007! Being the owners of a bed and breakfast, we are attuned to offering amenities for making guests comfortable.
West Virginia is truly wild and wonderful!
Canaan Valley is close to the DC metropolitan area (we used to live in Alexandria), making it a convenient ski destination. The Valley is beautiful in all seasons, and is a peaceful retreat. Windsong is sited on a spacious 2-acre wooded lot, with a private pond.
Windsong is very peaceful and quiet. There is a church directly across the road from the house, and all properties are situated on generous lots (several acres). Windsong's lot is wooded, with blackberry bushes and much vegetation. Additionally, there is a scenic pond on the property. The mountain view is gorgeous! And hot tubbing under the stars in incomparable!
