Overview

West Virginia 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!

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! Restrictions apply. Call 410-303-2713 for discounts. Special Note: The cabin is currently for sale. We are happy to take reservations far in advance with the understanding that we may not be able to accommodate the rental should a sale occur. Should a sale occur, we will notify any renters if they are affected and attempt to transfer the rental to the new owner, find comparable accommodations with another unit in the resort, or refund your money. Thanks for understanding.

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!

Warm and cozy - pet friendly - great location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3-day ski weekend in Canaan Valley. The cabin is less than 15 minutes from the Timberline parking lot, making this a desirable location. After a long day on the slopes, we headed home to enjoy wine and dinner by the fireplace (a real wood burning fire place!).

A HUGE thank you to the Black Bear Resort management as they kept the roads clear throughout the blizzard conditions. Further, they offered a tow service when we stranded our car in a neighboring resort. This is above and beyond exceptional service and I hope this note of gratitude finds its way to the plow/tow team.

Lastly, booking with this property was effortless. The property manager and owners answered all of our questions in a timely manner.

We hope to book here again this summer.

Great place; close to slopes and dog-friendly

  • 5 of 5

We did a last-minute ski getaway at the end of the season, and this cabin fit the bill perfectly. After a day on the slopes it was great to come back to a place that felt like home.

We loved the fireplace and the vaulted ceiling. It felt like we were in a nice ski lodge but with the benefit of being able to bring our three dogs with us instead of leaving them at a kennel.. There were even dog bowls and toys, which was a really nice touch, and a glassed-in entryway perfect for skis, boots, leashes and dog stuff. The grounds of the resort are lovely, and we enjoyed long walks with the dogs.

The wraparound deck was great too, with a view of the woods on one side and an adjacent farm's pasture on another. It was helpful that the deck was gated for folks who are traveling with dogs or kids, and our dogs enjoyed hanging out and watching the horse across the way.

The owner and property manager couldn't have been nicer to work with. They were very responsive and helpful, and even gave us a late checkout on Sunday since we arrived much later than expected on Friday night.

We hope to visit again when we can stay longer!

A True Oasis of Beauty and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

A true Oasis of Beauty and Relaxation

This cabin possesses the rare combination of rusticity and urbanity. It is warm, homey and pastoral while possessing the sophistication and all the conveniences of a city home. Moreover, the location is ideal, nestled among trees and across from a pasture of rollicking horses who seem to enjoy providing live entertainment as one sips their favorite beverage on the splendid wrap around deck or cooks a favorite meal on the gas grill.

Inside this very clean, cozy and tastefully appointed cabin one finds a functional and well stocked kitchen, large dining table, a comfortable living area with a stone fireplace and flat screen television. The master bedroom is a good size with a closet and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom is large and has a washer and dryer. The loft is quaint with a futon bed and two bunk beds and a closet. The AC and heating were easy to use and efficient. In short, this cabin had everything we needed for our wonderful mini-vacation.

The location is also perfect for all that the Canaan Valley has to offer. The Black Bear property and grounds are well maintained providing the amenities described.

We were sent thorough and easy instructions for our pre-rrival, stay and departure. The owner/rental manager was extremely professional and accommodating, responding quickly to our emails and needs. Truly excellent service with a personal touch.

I would highly recommend this property for a couple or family looking for a rustic getaway with all the conveniences of a city home. In short, this is a wonderful, clean and very comfortable cabin in a terrific location. We can’t wait to return!

A lovely oasis!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was a true find! The location is ideal--lovely spot in the resort, close to town, great hiking, etc. The Black Bear Resort has beautiful grounds and we met nice people and dogs. The wrap around deck is just perfect--nice and shaded on one side and with beautiful views on the other. My dog loved hanging out on the deck--SO wonderful that this is a dog friendly cabin! When we needed the AC, it worked beautifully. The cabin had everything we needed for a wonderful time. Just a lovely, comfortable place that I can't wait to return to!
