|Minimum Stay||2 - 4 nights|
Yes, it is heaven and you will be addicted the minute you step foot into the Valley. If you plan on an adventure or just a whole lot of R&R, you have made the right decision. First of all, enjoy your cup of java in the morning and imagine that you're an eagle soaring over the most amazing scenery that God has bestowed upon us; that's what you will experience here at Black Bear.
Black Bear Resort offers plenty to keep you busy with: fishing, hiking, putt-putt, swimming and tennis courts. The lodge has games, a pool table and a warm, inviting fireplace. Bring a book and relax at the gazebo, and oh, don't forget to use one of the fire pits at night while you reach out and grab a star or two.
Outside of Black bear is a whole big adventure with Canaan Valley's Wildlife Refuge that habitats over 150 bird species, Canaan Valley Resort, Blackwater Falls State Park and Timberline Ski Resort. Visit the historic towns of Davis and Thomas with their unique shops, cafes, and antique stores. The Purple Fiddle in Thomas offers a blend of alt-country music & Whitegrass Cross Country Ski Center is proud of their organic cuisine. Dolly Sods is nature at her finest and Mt. Storm Lake (20 min) has a public boat access.
Seneca Rock is a hiker's paradise and horseback riding with in a few miles. Sooo much to do so be sure to stay awhile.

This is the perfect place to stay! Location was excellent!
We traveled with a 7 yr old with special needs. The gradual ramp and no stairs at the entrance was perfect for him.
I think we picked a great time to come also. We pretty much had the entire resort to ourselves. Meeting new people is always nice, but it was a welcome change to just kick back and relax.
It met all our needs. Family consisting of my husband and I and our 3 adult children and daughter in law. Also 3 grandchildren 7, 5 and 9 month's.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us! Hayden the 5 yr old keeps begging to go back to the "vacation house". I'm sure if the other two could talk they would be begging to come back as well.
This was approximately our 15th trip to the area, but by far the best accommodations! Thanks again! We will be back!
My wife and I traveled here for our wedding anniversary just for some alone time. What a wonderful place. I use Homeaway for traveling several times annually. Let me say, this home is one of the best. As some reviews will probably mention, if you are a follow your GPS person, forget it for getting here. Once I turned off I-81, it did me no good. I was glad I printed directions from the lodge website and decided to use them for the trip. When we first got off I-81, I thought, oh no, single lane mountainous road for two hours…ugh. But after a while it opened up into a 65 mph 2 lane road that hardly anyone was on. Apparently, WV is building a lot of new roads? Of course, this is if you use the lodge directions (or mapquest). If you use GPS, you will be on single lane 35 mph roads for a very long time. During booking, Lisa was wonderful to answer all our questions and everything was as promised when we arrived. The house is AMAZING!!! It looks like a model home. I want Lisa to come decorate my house when we leave. This house has the perfect feel of luxury mixed with comfort and warmth. I know people say the pictures don’t do it justice, but they really don’t. The home sits off to the side of the other lodge homes so it is mostly by its self and private. This home is the biggest style the lodge offers and I am willing to bet the most premier one here. The lot is very nice and well landscaped. The view from the great room, which lead out onto the deck is to die for. The first night, we sat out on the deck just enjoying the view and the weather. All the furniture, from the chairs to the beds etc was very comfortable. The kitchen is definitely gourmet style and stocked with plenty of utensil and supplies for cooking at home of interested. There is an extra refrigerator as well. All the bathrooms and bedrooms are comfy and gracefully decorated. If you have used homeaway before you probably know there always seems to be one or two rooms in the house that is just a kids room with a couple beds or cheap furniture etc. But not this house. There is plenty of room. The internet worked great. My wife made steaks on the grill and mash potatoes for dinner one evening. We had everything we needed. The appliances are awesome. I really liked the arctic compartment on the refrigerator for keeping beer mugs cold. There is a Sac n Save just a short 5 min drive to town that has everything you need at decent prices. Try the Ice Cream shop for treats & Sankofa Massage for massage.
This is a great place to stay in Canaan Valley. The house is in a great location just minutes from both the slopes and the towns of Davis and Thomas. The house itself has a nice open kitchen/dining/living room area, which is great for hanging out and socializing. It's nicely furnished and the beds are super comfortable. Also the kids loved the awesome sled riding hill right outside the door. The grownups could watch and take pictures of the kids speeding down the hill right from the deck. We did have a couple issues during our stay, we had a plumbing problem and our car got stuck, but both the owner and the folks at the Black Bear Resort were very helpful in getting things resolved. We will definitely be coming back.
We were a group of motorcycle riders exploring the WV mountains and found this home to be perfect for us. We canceled motel reservations at the last minute after finding this lovely home on VRBO. It was a perfect choice! After coming back from a long day ride, we could relax together and play games. It rained on one of our days so we were fortunate to have booked a house where we could stay indoors; watch TV; cook our evening meal and play cards. Lisa was very helpful in giving us information on local restaurants and places of interest. Especially enjoyed eating at Amelia's and seeing the beautiful Blackwater Falls. West Virginia is indeed "God's Country"!
Picture perfect, but could not show how beautiful this home is! Beautiful decor, lights galore and furnishings that made us feels so cozy! Kitchen well stocked with dishes, utensils, pans, etc, etc etc! Bedrooms, bath, linens just as great! So many windows to view the beautiful WV scenery. We shared the chalet with 6 other adults and still all had our "own space"!!Complex has heated pool, enjoyed fishing, mini golf and even flying a kite! Definitely planning to keep the butterfly chalet in mind, spring, summer, fall or winter!!
This is our second time visiting The Butterfly Chalet and it won't be our last. The chalet is beautiful - from the moment you walk in the door, you feel relaxed and the view from the ceiling to floor windows is unbelieveable. When you walk out onto the outdoor wrap around deck it's even more beautiful. You can sit and enjoy the view while cooking on the outside grill and then have dinner on the picnic table. Everything you would ever need for a kitchen and more is there. Supplies such as soap, shampoo, conditioner, towels, beds are made - everything ready for you to enjoy. If you need groceries there is a Shop N Save and also a Dollar General about 5 to 10 minutes away so you don't have to bring all of your groceries with you. My son and husband enjoyed the golf course. The outdoor heated swimming pool is great and the view is wonderful. There is even a little mini-golf course there to play. One day we went into Thomas and Davis. The shops there are great - little specialty shops, antique shops, cafes to stop for lunch. Davis has the best ice cream anywhere. It is homemade and people are just waiting in line for the shop to open!! You must try it! We went to Dolly Sods to pick blueberries and enjoyed them the next day on cereal (the few that were left!!!). We visited Seneca Caverns and Seneca Rock - both of which are worth seeing. We went horseback riding and the scenery was beautiful - saw 5 deer on our ride! We found out too late about a ski-lift for rides to view the beautiful scenery. It only runs on Saturdays and Sundays and we found out late since we were leaving that Saturday - next year it is already on our list. We enjoyed a great meal at The Anchor Restaurant. The crab cakes were great. It's very relaxing and in a great setting. You can hike, bike, raft - you name it and they have it!!! Lisa, the owner, was wonderful and helpful to talk to. She was always quick to get back to you with any questions and made you feel so comfortable. Her house is so well maintained with everything that you need - this chalet is one of a kind!! If you haven't been to Davis to stay at The Butterfly Chalet, you are missing out on one wonderful vacation! Thank you again Lisa for opening your beautiful home to us. We will be back.
