We previously owned a condo no more than 100 yards away from where our home sits. We always admired the architecture of the home and always thought how nice it would be to call it our own. When the opportunity arose we couldn't pass it up. Cannan Valley is a gorgeous area to live in as well as visit. With the low humidity and abundant snowfall it is a true joy year round!
Fantastic views and proximity to everything.
Perfect slope side chalet for friends or family. Beautiful condo with easy walk to end of salamander and hopped right on trail for 4 great days of skiing. Very functional mudroom and well stocked kitchen with hot tub and great entertainment system. Kids and grandparents loved it while wife and I skied. Perfect and will be back.
First, off Suzanne was amazing to deal with! She was quick to respond and very helpful about what the vicinity had to offer!
We loved the layout of the home. The breakfast nook was great, it offered a well lit area anytime of the day. The home had everything we needed and we enjoyed every amenity it offered! The location was perfect for the hiking and exploring that we planned for our extended weekend. We hope to get back sometime again this year and hope to again reserve this gem in the mountains! Thank you :)
We had to find 3 nights' housing for a family wedding at the amazing but remote Bear Rocks Wlderness Area of DollySods WVA. 3 nights in the nearest hotel, the state park lodge...despite being beautiful, still a hotel room...did not appeal. This chalet rental appeared to be, and was, a terrific alternative. Slt lower price, 3 times the sleeping accommodations with 2 nice bathrooms, plus a wonderfully designed and outfitted kitchen and living room in a beautiful setting. Amazing.
We thoroughly enjoyed hiking and just being in this very special area of W VA. Rode the state park ski lift up mountain to then walk just downhill, ahh, on the Bald Knob Trail. Ski areas in summer are such lovely mountain meadows. Blueberries, raspberries, blackcaps, deer and nountaintop views.
But Dolly Sods...never seen the likes of it.
We want to return. To this house and the Canaan Valley in spring/summer/fall.
Must add though, this is not a rental for folks with bad knees. Its architectural delights span no less than 8 levels of the A frame. You climb a few stairs between every room. Fun, and privacy-promoting, but not for folks with mobility issues.
Let me start by saying that the home owner, Suzanne, was wonderful and easy to work with. That alone makes the vacation experience that much better. My family set out to find a house within walking distance of the slopes at Timberline. This chalet was perfect. We could walk down the hill and past the condos to the base of Salamander in about 60 seconds. Furthermore, we could ski down either Salamander or any combination of slopes from the top to White Out and walk down hill back to the house in the same 60 seconds. My 6 year old did not once complain about the distance and we made several trips to and from the house each day. In many cases, you couldn't park your car at the lodge and walk a shorter distance.
Inside the house you will find a charming, unique design suitable for a small to mid size group. We had 4 adults, 1 child and an infant. We were very comfortable. The kitchen is the highlight of the house. It is beautiful and very functional. Our favorite touch was the sleigh used as a pan holder from the ceiling. Both the upstairs and downstairs living areas were very comfortable and the hot tub is a perfect end to a long day of skiing. There is also a separate ski entrance that has both inside and outside ski racks. It was nice being able to store our gear out of the way of everything else.
Overall, our experience was top notch. I would certainly stay in this house again and absolutely recommend it to those looking for a great value that is nearly ski in/ski out.
We stayed at this house a couple weekends ago, and it was really a great spot to be! Although it's not ski right up to the house slopeside, we just walked over to the slope from the house, hopped on our skis and pushed down to the ski lift (which is where we are located on the mountain)...you can ski down from the trails to walk off the mountain at the same spot, so you aren't worried about getting to the house when they close the Salamander trail for night skiing. Or you can drive 30 seconds down the road to park at the lodge (it's a longer walk from the far parking lot than to walk to trail from the house).
As for the house, it has a foosball table and game (can't remember if it was playstation or xbox), so kids entertained themselves the whole time, and a very comfortable couch to relax on to watch TV or chill out and nice usable kitchen! Open stairwells with rails, though the rails have space, so i wouldn't recommend this property for toddlers who could probably fall through.
We had a great time and plan to return in the future!
My family stayed over the Christmas holidays in 2009 and loved the location! We had a really great time and the house is convenient to the slopes. It was about a 2 minute walk! The view from the kitchen windows is amazing! We loved watching the snow fall! We enjoyed it so much, we have decided to stay in the same vacation home again this year! We are counting down the days until vacation!!
