In winter to be trailside on one of the nation's favorite cross country ski areas and in summer within a short walk or drive to some of the finest white water streams, pristine swimming holes, wild caves, and the funky tourist towns of Davis and Thomas.
I can't imagine a better stay in all of Canaan Valley! This was our second stay and every bit the magic of the first. The Garage Mahal is cozy, well designed, and tastefully decorated and all accommodation has been considered and provided. The best part is that it's right across the street from White Grass- the best cross country skiing and an awesome dining experience- you'll feel like you've come home to friends and family you never knew you had. Chip and Laurie, their family and staff are the absolute hosts. Can't say enough about the place and their newish VRBO site!
Drive on in, set right down. We really enjoyed being able to park the car and cross country ski Whiter Grass from the Garage Mahal. The accommodations are convenient, clean, nicely appointed but uncluttered. The proximity to the White Grass Cafe' where the meals are as tasty as ever, are a definite plus. The reservation system worked great. This all adds up to an easy, fun and low key winter get away for a couple of days. Other options such as skiing at nearby Timber Line or Canaan Ski Resorts are accessible either through connecting back country trails or via a short drive. Highly recommended; the hosts couldn't be nicer. We'll be back.
My wife and 2 kids stayed for 3 days. Full kitchen, 2 BR and DVD for movie night. Right at White Grass and close to Timberline and Canaan. We got to ski 2 out of 3. Will be coming back again. Thanks for a great stay!
I can't believe it took me this long to come visit Whitegrass and try cross country skiing. My husband and I had so much fun staying at the Garage Mahal and can't wait to come back. The apartment/house is perfect and the proximity to the cross country trails (trailhead in the back yard) and their fabulous cafe/ski rental shop made it the most stress free winter trip ever. We did not get in the car until it was time to leave.
Our stay could not have been better. The cabin is very thoughtfully equipped and comfortable. We did a lot of hiking and got engaged at Dolly Sods! Coming back to the cozy cabin after a long day of hiking and such an exciting time to be able to cook dinner together and relax was just perfect. The view from the porch is beautiful.
During our stay we visited the Dolly Sods and Blackwater Falls. Both were BEAUTIFUL. The town of Davis is very cute.
We highly recommend! :)
The Garage Mahal is a wonderful place for peace and quiet, great walking trails, and warm, welcoming hosts. Chip and Laurie went above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed, even leaving us additional contact numbers when they had to leave for a couple of days. They helped us out of a difficult situation, all the while acting like their extra efforts were not a burden at all. We felt like family friends.
The place is also extremeley comfortable with a lot of considerate touches, like fast internet and extra supplies of things you might not have brought. It was clean, the beds were perfectly firm (but not hard) and we felt like we had everything we needed. You can take long walks around the property on the ski trails, and the dogs are made to feel welcome.
White Grass is also ideally situated in the Canaan Valley. The towns of Thomas and Davis have a good vibe with good food and music and friendly people. There is hiking all around you, with two state parks and the Dolly Sods all about 15 minutes away. If you want to see Seneca Rocks and do some exploring, it is a quick beautiful drive away.
We are already planning our return trip.
Natures Playground of the Mid Atlantic. More outdoor activities than can be listed. Adjacent to Canaan and Blackwater State Parks, Dolly Sods National Forest Wilderness and the Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge.
