Anniversary Weeken

  • 5 of 5

We were looking to get away and celebrate our one year anniversary and the Black Bear Chalet was the right place.

When we arrived we found the cabin to be in excellent shape, and everything in its place. The instructions were easy to follow and we didn't have to waste anytime before turning off our phones and not touching them again until we left. The porch was a great place to enjoy meals and watch the birds. The property was large enough to explore and find some spots to sit and soak in the surroundings. Other than some cars going past, we didn't see anyone else and that's exactly what we we wanted.

All correspondence with the Webers was prompt and courteous. They provided detailed instructions regarding the cabin and things to do in the surrounding area. We didn't venture out on this trip by design - other than the Paw Paw Tunnel on the way home - but next time we plan to take advantage of their suggestions of things to see and places to go.

We definitely want to return before too long to unplug and recharge. The only thing we'd do differently is maybe add an extra day.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review, we are very glad you had a great time. Like you, many of our clients are looking for this type of time away from the constant interruptions of the modern digital age and we are glad our Chalet met the need. It is truly nice just to sit on a deck and look out into the trees and watch birds and other wildlife. Happy 1st anniversary. We know a great place for your 2nd anniversary also! Come back and visit with us again soon and please tell your friends about us.

A wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

My dad and I went there for Father's Day weekend, and had an excellent time! My dad really enjoyed being able to get up into the woods and away from everyday life; the cabin really lived up to its "get away from it all" promise. It was clean, well appointed, and overall very pleasant!

10/10 would recommend.

Somewhat disappointing....

  • 2 of 5

My husband and I arrived to the cabin late at night, ready for a wonderful trip. But, once we walked into the cabin, we realized that it was dirty in the bathroom and kitchen areas. Even my husband wouldn't venture into the bathroom other than what was absolutely necessary! We tried to run the (brown) water as directed, and we still didn't get any hot water during our short stay. The bedroom and living room were very cute, and the spot on mountain was very idyllic. As a whole, we realized that you get what you pay for. We left our vacation early, and I don't think we will be venturing to West Virginia again.

Owner's Response: These comments truly befuddle us, as one can see by the other reviews, this is certainly not the experience of others who have visited the Black Bear Chalet. In fact, we have some customers that return year after year and we would not expect they would return if they did not enjoy their visit or find the cabin dirty or something not working. What is odd is that I remember the specific day my daughter and I cleaned the cabin prior to your visit (we had a truck load of shale delivered that afternoon we needed to fix some spots on the driveway damaged due to the recent heavy rains) and after showing your comments to my adult daughter, we cannot figure out what we did or did not do any differently from the 300+ other times we have cleaned and prepared the cabin for the next guest but obviously, we are sorry if we somehow missed something but we are scratching our heads for sure. Regarding the water heater, it works just fine after about an hour after the circuit breaker is turned on (per the instructions when you arrive). Yesterday I checked it personally. I also checked with some guests that visited prior to your visit as well as some guests that visited after you did. Everyone reported plenty of hot water. The mountains of WV are a wonderful place for a vacation, we are sorry you did not have a good time.

Peaceful, clean, unique

This is a wonderful place to "get away from it all." Rustic, but clean, and the beds were comfortable.

Great family getaway! Great communication.

My brother and I rented the Black Bear Chalet and each brought our son with us for a guy's weekend. We were not disappointed. The cabin was clean when we got there, and the boys loved the loft. There was lots of room to hike and search the property, TV for them to watch movies and play games and a super cozy fire to keep warm. The kids were never bored and it gave my brother and I a lot of quality time to catch up. While we had an issue trying to get the hot water on at first, Mike and Ann were unbelievably responsive. They ensured that we had everything we needed for a fantastic trip. We even forgot some items in the cabin and Mike and Ann were kind enough to send them back to us. We'll likely be back again!

Owner's Response: Mike - Many thanks for the kind review, we are glad you enjoyed your visit. Please come again. We are especially happy to hear the boys liked the cabin and the area, its well suited for active kids of all ages. We are glad we could mail back the items to you that were left, that is no problem at all. About a week or so after your visit, we noted some rather large black bear tracks in the snow not far from the cabin. Animal tracks were all over the ground going in every direction. We don't call it the Black Bear Chalet for nothing! Thanks again and please visit us again.
