Notes:
Mid Atlantic Mountain Wilderness where less than 1500 folks reside in 50 square miles...one road thru the county and the nearest traffic light is 45 minutes away and not really needed. The next one is another hour from there...this part of WV is stunning, high elevation coolness and wet year around. The Blackwater/Canaan Valley region is a naturalist hot spot due to the diversity of climates, forest types, and having a rain shadow on all four sides. Most of the area is either one of two WV State Parks, National Forest and Federal Wilderness, National Wildlife Refuge, State Wildlife Management Area, National Youth Science Foundation or the local Mountain Top Hunt Club. Four distinct seasons with a long winter usually filled with 140 inches of snow and a wet, long, cool spring leading into a thunderstorm breezy summer in the 70's. Autumn here is under sold as the local sugar maples and yellow birch in a back drop of red spruce, balsam fir, and hemlock is world class. Crazy weather, too!

Great property in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Property was extremely well built and furnished. The location is beautiful and quiet, a short drive from Davis and the hiking areas in the region. Owners were very nice and the rental process was seamless. Thank you!

Naturally cool and beautiful summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

We’ve used Chip Chase’s Garage Mahal in Davis, WV, two or three times now as a naturally cool getaway from summer heat in the lowlands. Up two sets of stairs, it is a comfortable, efficient two bedroom layout with kitchen, living room, deck, washing machine/dryer and excellent WiFi. We can count on quiet nights away from road noise on the one main route through Canaan Valley, a plateau at 4,000 feet high, with breezes through the magnificent sugar maples around Garage Mahal and Chip’s house (the only one) nearby. Yet the location is minutes from all kinds of outdoor activities in one of eastern North America’s most beautiful and mysterious ecosystems. Hiking trails start at the doorstep. Chip is a conscientious and generous host. We are definitely coming back again.

Amazing people! Chip and Laurie were so helpful and accommodating. You couldn’t ask for better hosts

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spotless and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and there is even a washer and dryer. The hosts were close by so they were there to answer any questions. Canaan is over the top gorgeous and Chip knows the area like the back of his hand. From swimming holes to restaurants and everything in between, Chip loves the area and loves to share it with visitors. We’ll be back!

No Privacy

  • 2 of 5

No privacy, the owners house is right across the yard. No AC for summertime, and the beds were hard as a rock. We were gonna do tent camping, but chose this rental. So, i guess this was better than tents.

Owner's Response: We did not get to meet Rodney as we were on our own vacation yet we encourage all guests to use the entire property as if their own and it would be impossible to bother us. The site states that it is very private at the end of the small road yet next door to the owners. Lack of AC is well advertised as well yet there are fans, screens, shade, and very well insulated...rarely is it too hot in these mountains. The beds are expensive and comfortable to most and this is the first time in 3 years of a complaint. We try to improve the house and respond to feedback and will be installing reading lamps near the couch and screen door on the backside for better cross ventilation, the latest good ideas we've received. We encourage all guests to comment as we want to make the best experience for everyone and appreciate both negative and positive! Chip Chase and Laurie Little
