Best cabin you could ever ask for!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect! It was very cozy, with lots of space. The cabin was even better than the description. It was a two minute walk from Timberline Ski Resort, had a nice spacious hot tub, all the supplies and amenities to fit your needs, and was very clean and well kept. The managers were very nice and accommodating. I would absolutely recommend this cabin to anybody looking for comfort and convenience. This cabin has it all. We all had an amazing time and will definitely stay here again if we can make it out to Canaan Valley for another trip!

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

For the previous four years in a row we have been staying here at the home owned by Alfred and Jean Smith in Canaan Valley West Virginia. It is a wonderful place and so very simple, warm and cozy. The best get away! Its pet friendly too and, as such, relieves you of the task of trying to find somebody babysit your pets that you consider family. If you like to ski or if you like to horseback ride this is the place to be and that's why I continue to visit this getaway year after year! Thanks again Pete & and I will see you next year!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house with all you could ask for: Neat and tidy house, fully loaded kitchen, clean bathrooms (with good supply), very good size bed-rooms (plenty of comforters/sheets), super cozy loft and perfect size living/dining for a family of 6-8. The house has it all - elders could have quiet time, kids could play Xbox 360 (slim version), young one's can enjoy WiFi, Dish/Movies or music. Just go there with personal belongings and clothes and don't worry about the rest - have a fabulous time in the wilderness. Pete (the owner) provided all the needed info. about the surrounding area before we reached. Thank you for sharing your place with us Pete and Jean, we look forward to our next trip in spring/summer.

Great location at Timberline, exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location near the Timberline base. Great property with deck and table outside, and a stream flowing through the backyard. The pictures accurately capture the inside, but if anything, it's nicer and has very comfy couches in the living room. Also, they had a gas grill, which we appreciated, and the hot tub was relaxing and very clean. We definitely plan to return. Thank you for the amazing getaway!
