We stayed in this lovely cabin for a family ski vacation. We were delighted at the open, airy feel of the cabin and the amount of light the large windows allowed. The cabin is accurately described with woodsy decor with many dreamcatchers (its given name) - charming. It was roomier than expected; we felt at home. The couch in the picture has been replaced by a leather/vinyl chocolate couch which was quite comfortable. The loft upstairs was larger than expected and can room six children comfortably (we had four).
I was pleased at the large number of pots/pans/utensils/appliances found in the kitchen. The owners also use a property management company which rents their cabin, so some of the equipment was well used, but still had much use in it. There is large table which can fit 10 people. Note here: the bench seat of the table is against the open stair rail that leads down to the garage. If you have an infant/young toddler (9 mo-2) who climbs indiscriminately; this could be dangerous. However, my two year old had no problem with it. Stairs to loft are open on one side (see owner's pics).
One of the highlights of the house was the outdoor jacuzzi tub. There were a plethora of towels available - much appreciated. My children found the beds comfortable. Unfortunately, I have a bad back and had a hard time being comfortable on the beds. They were firm but I woke up sore. I ended up sleeping on the couch. If you have back problems, you may want to bring a topper, etc. They have a large capacity washer and dryer that comes off the master bedroom that worked very well. The bathrooms functioned well.
While we were there, we skied Timberline because we are beginners and wanted to use the 2 mile Salamander run. We chose the weekdays for skiing and with the less than perfect weather and record low snowfall, had the resort to ourselves; excellent for learning how to ski. Great ski instructors for adults and kids! I thought the nursery/childcare facility (we used twice for total of 4 hours) was fair, workers were nice. We also tubed and ice skated at Canaan Valley Resort and hiked at Blackwater Falls. There is a lovely nature center for the refuge which my kids enjoyed.
I would return to this cabin. I think it was an excellent value for the price and met all our expectations and more. We saved money by renting directly from the owner instead of the rental company. She was responsive, helpful, reasonable and professional.
What a wonderful place for my family's get away! We loved the house and all it had to offer. The fireplace was amazing and kept us warm on the cold nights. Sitting in the hot tub with the snow falling is a memory I will hold onto forever. The owner's were amazing and easy to work with. The kitchen was well stocked for a thanksgiving dinner.
First off don't hesitate in renting this beautiful home! This home is everything that the owners advertised. The home was clean, lots of room, decorated perfect and a great home like feeling. Location is perfect and sitting outside was peaceful . The hot tub was a added bonus.....
We would sit outside in the morning with our coffee and wait for the deer to come down the mountain. This place will make you feel like you are in your own little world! I want to also thank Karen & Dave for leaving my husband and I stayed in your beautiful home! I stay in Timberline every time that I visit and I will be a returning customer.
We recently spent our third week in this wonderful home. We have rented directly from the owners every time and they are so easy to contact and great to deal with.
We love this location and home. The house is nicely decorated, always clean when we arrive and has everything we need for our vacations. It was so peaceful. We would sit outside and listen to the crickets at night and the occasional hummingbird early in the day. We watched the deer roam around the property on several occasions and even had a mother bear and her 2 cubs walk through the front yard one evening (she took off running as soon as she realized we were there.)
We had our kids with us for the long weekend and then they headed home and we had the house to ourselves. Had magnificent sunsets up on the Dolly Sods and spent many hours fishing all of the lakes. Plenty of hiking as well. I know that the home has TV and Wifi, though we only used the TV for a couple of movies and the wifi for a fantasy football draft. We went to unplug from the rest of the world, and it worked beautifully.
I highly recommend this cabin and as I have already told the owners, we will be back.
We rented directly from the owners and found them to be caring, they made sure that we had a great experience. We found them to be fair, honest, and easy to reach. We have always rented vacation homes by owner and have had a great experience in doing so.
We arrived to see a great log cabin in the woods that was very private with a small pond. Upon
entering the home we found a clean homely atmosphere that was very tastefully decorated which gave it a very homely feel to it. The kitchen was stocked with more than you will ever need, had a large dining room with a large table. We found the whole home to be very comfortable and enjoyable. The owners have taken a great deal of pride, and have done a great deal of work in their vacation home.
This is a great place for skiers in the winter as well as nature lovers in the summer and for those who like their privacy . You will not be disappointed if you rent this lovely home. Every day their would be deer in the yard that you could enjoy and photograph up close. The ski trails are about five minutes away from the home and there's a lot of things to see and do.
We stayed here the last week of May and the cabin was great. We have three kids and they really enjoyed everything. The cabin is perfect for kids. We saw plenty of wildlife (fox, deer, eagle, horses, snake, turtle). We had a fawn curled up in our front yard one morning. We went canoeing and paddle boating several times on the lake. The cabin was well stocked and we had everything we needed for an enjoyable time. We had one minor issue with the hot tub and Dave and Karen had it resolved in less than two hours. I would definently consider coming back and I would recommend this cabin to anyone. The Canaan Valley was beautiful and Blackwater Falls State Park and Seneca Rock is very close.
