A visit to Carminden Cottage is the perfect family getaway to get back to basics. This cottage is named after our daughters Carmin, Denise and Mindy. Featuring Quiet nights and fun filled days!

There is also a lake, river, fishing, bike rental, and golf nearby. In addition, there is a shared swimming pool that is now open for the summer. If there is a shopper in the family there are also craft and specialty shops only minutes away from Carminden Cottage.

Spend your Nights dining in the cottage around the fireplace. If you are in the mood to go out for dinner there is a multitude of dining options.

This location also features some of the areas best restaurants. Ranging from juicy steak and chicken to succulent seafood and mouth watering desserts.

For the busy family a trip to Canaan Valley is a refreshing opportunity to tune into each other as well as tune into nature. Whether you spend your winter days skiing, or your summer days hiking, fishing, swimming and bike riding. You are sure to leave rested, refreshed, and ready to return to the hustle and bustle of your normal life.

Our family is excited to offer you and your family the opportunity to experience the soothing,slow pace life that we have enjoyed over the years.

As our kids have grown-up, they always remember the magical visits to their home away from home at Carminden Cottage. We hope the experience is just as rewarding and we hope that you will take a piece of the "magical spirit" of Carminden Cottage home with you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We recently placed our property on VRBO because we wanted to lower the cost of family vacations for families with children. As our three daughters continue to grow we always valued the wonderful time we spent at Carminden Cottage without spending a lot of money. The kids would help make a healthy breakfast every morning before we were off fishing, biking, swimming, or sightseeing. After long,hot, tiring days we would come home fix dinner,make some delicious brownies, maybe watch a movie and play in the Hottub on the back porch. On special days the kids would invite friends over for dinner who they met while swimming.

We would go to dinner at least twice during our 10 day stay. Big Johns was the kids favorite. They would order pizza. Go on the back steps and feed the fish, or play games. The wife and I would get a minute to catch our breath and talk about how relaxing the time had been.The other dinner outing was at the Golden Anchor. This is absolutely my favorite seafood restaurant. All the workers remember the kids, and the owner visits every table. If you are seriously interested please call. We are new at this and want to build our business. If price is an issue, make us an offer. We know if we get you to visit once...you will return, again and again! It's the magic of Canaan Valley. Call today and get your reservations..

Wonderful Long Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this cabin for four days, along with our dogs Woody and Riley. We loved the cabin and the quiet nights, and found that four days was not nearly enough time to explore the area. We hiked at Seneca Rocks and at the South Branch of the Potomac, and also visited Blackwater Falls and saw a bit of the Dolly Sod. Our favorite place to eat was the Blackwater Brewing Company in Davis - pretty good food and excellent beer! Floyd was wonderful in making sure we had the information we needed. And, the HomeAway listing was exactly on target. Thanks - we really enjoyed the visit, and hope to return! - Janet

Excellent long weekend

Very nice cabin, placed in perfect location to enjoy many outdoor activities (hiking, river canooing, rock climbing etc.). We warmly recommend for couples and families with children.

My husband and 10 month old son, with our friends and their 6 year old daughter stayed here for a short weekend vacation! The cottage is beautiful - pictures don't do it justice. The area is filled with hiking, fishing, sight seeing etc. Amelia's had great breakfast and there were two planes that were on the air strip, which my husband was totally fascinated by. Our baby had a great time crawling over the super clean floors and enjoyed taking walks in the evening. It was perfect. Definitely will return! Thank you!

Lovely, comfortable, clean - everything it was made out to be

  • 5 of 5

My husband, family dog and I had a wonderful time in this cozy clean and comfortable cottage. Dr. Jones was so helpful and kind in all of his communication - and everything he told us was true. The cottage is outfitted with everything you would need. Linens provided and kitchen fully stocked - we chose to take our linens just for ease for getaway. Canaan Valley is lovely and quiet in the summer - I had only been there in the winter for ski trips prior to this trip. Canaan Valley has a tubing hill and the chair lift is running for a trip to the top of the ski resort. The highlight of our trip was a visit to Blackwater Falls. Will definitely return when the opportunity presents itself. My husband was fascinated with the airstrip in the community.

Very Pleasant Stay All Around

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a very enjoyable three night stay at Carminden Cottage. The cabin was clean and modern and had all the necessary amenities and more. The community in which the cabin is situated is also very inviting and the views are amazing. Dr. Jones was a pleasure to work with and very understanding of our needs. I would certainly recommend this cabin to a friend that plans on visiting the area.

Amazing Place To Visit

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best mountain view cabin I have ever stayed. The cabin has a wilderness feel with all the amenities that you need and the hot tub was a bonus. We got an unexpected snow fall of 6-8 inches and the roads were well maintained. Floyd Jones made sure we were well taken care of and had staff available if something needed repair during our stay, luckily we didn't. I will be back to rent this place again this summer for the white water rafting trip.
