Warm welcome, wonderful seclusion

  • 5 of 5
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.

Perfect summer getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The perfect summer getaway! Our first trip to the Canaan Valley and we could not have chosen a better spot. We took advantage of Dolly Sods (right out the door), Nelson Rocks Outdoor Center, Blackwater Falls, and of course the wonderful apartment itself.
Chip and Laurie shared some great recommendations as well as some greens from their gardens. Relaxing, adventure filled, gorgeous, and comfortable. We loved it and can't wait to return. - Leigh & Joshua (Atlanta, GA)

Lovely apartment in quiet corner of the valley

  • 5 of 5
I came up to Canaan Valley for a few days to write and hike, and this beautiful apartment was the perfect place to stay. The White Grass trails are right out the back door for hiking in the summer and cross-country skiing in the winter. Canaan Valley State Park is five minutes away, and Timberline is ten minutes. A big deck overlooks the woods. The owners live on the property and have two dogs that got along fine with mine. Great place for a laid-back vacation.

Awesome Summer!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Chip and Laurie's fantastic cabin for the summer. It was perfect and had everything we needed for a summer working remotely. The place is well laid out and designed as well as inviting and comfortable. It is set at the end of a country road adjacent to the White Grass cross country center and the Canaan Wildlife Refuge with streams and creeks flowing through the property that can be heard at night and create a most serene and calm atmosphere.

Everything worked perfectly for our stay and the place was more than we expected and could have asked for. The cabin is new and well stocked and provides all the comforts one would need for a short or long stay. The kitchen was great for cooking and the south facing deck provided hours of relaxing, sunning and enjoying the quiet of nature.

There are hiking trails straight from the property and the location provides easy access to Dolly Sods where we enjoyed some amazing hikes and loads of wild blueberry picking. Chip is a avid outdoorsman and naturalist and helped us with any info and suggestions of places to go and things to see and do. He also took us mushroom hunting and we enjoyed many a dinner with freshly picked chanterelles or other delicious mushrooms that he had brought to us. And if it wasn't mushrooms then we received a "delivery" of fresh vegetables and herbs from their vegetable garden. Laurie, being a consummate chef and caterer helped with any kitchen supplies and odds and ends that we needed and was often bringing over fresh offerings.

We cannot say enough about Chip and Laurie and we highly recommend their beautiful cabin! You will not be sorry no matter what the season. We plan to return and hopefully will be able to take advantage of the easy access to miles and miles of cross country skiing and snowshoeing right from the cabin's doorstep.
