About Michelle

My sister, Missy and I, manage our family home. Missy lives in Ripley, WV with her husband, Rob and their dog Brock. I live in Morgantown, WV with my two kids, Madison and Matthew. I'm a graduate of WVU and now work there in the Education department. This home was the dream of our parents, which started more than 30 years ago.

Michelle purchased this house in 2011

Why Michelle chose West Virginia

We realize you have many options to choose from! So, let us tell you why we've decided to offer our home to you. As Missy and I vacation with our families across the US, we have come to value the home owners who have thought of everything to make our stay comfortable... from extra throw blankets, games and toys for your kids, crock pots and ample dishes, we hope we've thought of everything to help you feel at home in our home! Its brand new, yet very simple. If there's something you don't love, we want to hear about it, so we can try to change it for our future guests!

What makes this house unique

You'll love our private lot and the overwhelming quiet from the front porch. Memories will be made sitting around the fire, and playing board games in our game room. We sincerely hope you'll take a leisurely walk around the property and down the road... you never know what you might see along the way!

Fabulous Mountain Home

  • 4 of 5

Michelle was very easy to work with and the rental house was very nice! When we first arrived, the grass hadn't been mowed and was quite long but as soon as Michelle found out about it, she got right on it and got someone out there. To her defense, she had just hired a new cleaning crew and I believe there was a mixup. The house was huge and very clean. We had 8 people and there was plenty of room for all of us. The 4 bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs worked out great, as my mom couldn't climb the stairs and she liked her own little space downstairs. I was quite surprised at the size of the master bedroom - VERY spacious. Loved the hardwood floors downstairs and the large kitchen. The mountain view from the front deck was stunning and we sure did enjoy sitting around the fire pit every night and totally relaxing! We enjoyed playing ping pong and corn hole. We visited the Blackwater Falls, Canaan Valley State Park, went fishing, rode the ski lift and went through the Seneca Caverns. We would like to go back and stay sometime in the fall. We received our security deposit in a timely fashion. A couple things that should be looked at are the kitchen faucet that leaks and the kitchen stove knobs are loose and sometimes you can't tell if the gas burner is on or off. Overall, our family had a great time and would definitely stay in this house again. Thanks, Michelle!

Family Ski Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a weekend ski getaway for my family (myself, my wife, three adult children, their significant others, and three grandchildren). The property was clean, spacious and well maintained. The pictures accurately portray the property. It was easy to find, close to both ski slopes, and I really liked the fact is was in the valley rather than on the side of a hill as are a lot of properties in the are. The location was important to me given the winter driving conditions common to the area. The owners were very responsive and provided good service. I would highly recommend this property to anyone.

Great Location, Well maintained House

  • 4 of 5

We just completed our second year staying in this house while attending a family reunion. It is easy to find, the location is great and there are ample linens, towels and kitchen necessities. The only problem I can see with this house is the dining table in the kitchen, if you have a large group, it is very hard to sit at the table with all chairs in use, especially on the chairs that are against the wall. That is evident by the scratch marks on the wall. We had a small group so that was not a problem for us. We will probably stay here in the future. I would recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for pointing this out. Sorry to hear the walls were scratched. That is disappointing. Glad your family came back for a second visit!

Great spring break

  • 5 of 5

We went here with our family of two adults 3 little kids and a teenager and our friends with two adults and three little kids. There was plenty of space for sleeping and hanging out without being on top of eachother. The house was very well stocked. We loved the chance to get away from the city and enjoy the natural surroundings of the property. The outside lends well to the kids playing with the large yard and deck. The tvs in every room was a treat for our teenager and the kitchen was wonderful and spacious for hosting all thoes people for meals! The fire pit was a fun treat and the multiple outdoor chairs made that a pleasant event for everyone. It was a bit cold an rainy so we didn't get to utilize the bikes in the garage but there was a large number in good condition, we look forward to coming back again!

Great Place for a Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and spacious! We skied in the area and it was nice to come back to a place where it felt like home. We cooked in and the kitchen exceeded our needs. Well decorated and clean. Directions for how to check in and out were easy to follow. Excellent place to relax and enjoy what the Canaan area has to offer!

Our planning for this week stay took place months ago and the assistance,understanding,

just plain talk as if we were part of Michele's family. With 10+ family staying there each person had their own space, it felt spacious. All the comforts of home, we just walked in and turned the lights on. Oh, the nightly fire pit experience with marsh mellows was a big hit with the kids (old people too). check in and check out were spelled out and easy to follow. Another neat thing was it was located about half way and closer to many attractions--golf, zip lining, horseback riding, Cass Railroad, white water and State Parks and more. Will definitely return with my family.
