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!

Planning to return as we were leaving

  • 5 of 5

I cannot overstate how wonderful the hosts of this place are. We felt home as soon as we stepped in, and really hope to return there as soon as possible. Being able to ski to the center is an amazing plus, especially with kids. Fantastic location. Stellar view. Great cross country skiing trails, ranging from secluded to kid friendly. Great beers. Not much we can ask for on a skiing vacation.

As always, a great place to stay at Canaan

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year in a row coming to Whitegrass Ski Touring Center on a weekend in November to help with trailwork. We have stayed at the Garage Mahal all three years. It is the perfect spot to relax, enjoy the beautiful countryside and be close to the fun of helping get the trails ready for another season of skiing. The apartment has everything you need to cook, relax and stay cozy for a weekend . We will be back

Almost heaven? No almost about it!

  • 5 of 5

Great place and a wonderful bunch of folks! We had fun walking in the woods and relaxing on the deck, enjoying the sounds of the forest. Very comfortable beds, and a great kitchen to cook in. And Chip gave us some wonderful wild mushrooms to add to our dinner! This place is a little piece of heaven. Thanks Laurie and Chip. We will be back when the snow falls.
