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!

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.

Wonderful Stay at the Garage Mahal

  • 5 of 5

The Garage Mahal was a wonderful place to stay. It was very clean and had everything that we needed. It was very close to all of the sights we wanted to see. It had all the modern-day conveniences that made our stay comfortable and homey. It was very close to the boardwalk on Freeland Rd. where we spent evenings. It quiet and provided solitude. Arrival and departure process was easy and streamlined. We are looking forward to our next trip and stay at the Garage Mahal. We would recommend this place to others.
