About the property

Wild and Wonderful, White Tail Run Retreat

Nestled in the woods, our home in Old Timberline is a great getaway as a couples retreat or a family fun-filled weekend. Ensuring an abundance of privacy, the property is situated on 5 acres at the end of the road in a community with entry via a guarded gate house. A perfect spot for gentle bike rides, taking pleasure in a walk and catching the amazing night skies, White Tail Run provides a reprieve from the hustle and bustle. The house is comprised of a well-appointed kitchen with 2 dining tables, 4 comfortable bedrooms and 3 full baths. There are 2 generous living areas; one upper, one lower, each with an enormous wood burning stone fireplace. The main floor, which has the kitchen, family room, 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, is accessible directly from the driveway. This makes for effortless unloading of bags and groceries and accommodates anyone who may not be able to easily navigate stairs. Retreat downstairs and take in a movie on the 55 inch LED TV or a game of pool in a separate room. The open backyard provides lots of room for romping in all seasons. Plus, for the adventurous there is a path leading down the hill to the enchantments of the meandering Blackwater River. Sit on one of the generous rocks and listen to nature or get a kick out of the squeals of children spying crayfish. Enjoy the outdoor porch and relish the early morning harmony of the birds and deer as well as capturing the fabulous evening sun sets. Whatever the reason or season, White Tail Run provides the gifts of nature, privacy and comfort ensuring a relaxing stay and an opportunity to build amazing vacation memories anytime of the year.

The beauty of a Timberline location is that you have access to many area attractions. The houses location is close driving proximity for winter fun at both of the slopes of Timberline and Canaan making it convenient to drop off the snow bunnies and pick them up anytime. During the warmer months it is easy to plan your outdoor excursions to Blackwater Falls, Seneca Rocks, Smoke Hole Caverns, or the Dolly Sods and easily make it back to home base with plenty of time to relax.

If you should be coming from the DC/NVA area, from exit 55 on I-66 it is a tad less than a 3 hour drive! An easy journey now that US 48 (Corridor H) is complete to the top of Scherr Mountain and almost to Davis.

About Jessica Bassett

We are recent transplants to beautiful Fairfax Station, VA. I am originally from Charleston, WV and met my husband at Ohio University and upon graduation moved to Baltimore, MD, where we lived in the historic area of Guilford for 25 years.

Jessica Bassett purchased this cabin in 1989

Why Jessica Bassett chose West Virginia

This home has been in my family for over 25 years and we have enjoyed nature at its best over the years. We return to White Tail Run as often as work and the children's schedules permit. The draw of the mountains is one that I can not resist for long.

What makes this cabin unique

This is a beautiful, unspoiled location in the highest valley east of the Rockies. A 4 season property with access to Skiing, Hiking, and more activities to enjoy set only by the limits of your imagination!

We had a lovely weekend staying here! Its a clean, beautiful and extremely comfortable house. Was traveling as a group of eight with a small baby and couldnt have asked for a more relaxing and comfy house. Jessica is great to deal with and her desciption of the property is very accurate! Cant wait to get back :)

Completely forgot to write a review for when my boyfriend and I stayed here in 2014. We went in the fall. It was the perfect weather, perfect scenery and location! I honestly could not have asked for somewhere better! My boyfriend and I still say to this day that is was the best vacation we have ever taken! The house was very large as it was only two of us.. but we LOVED it! We loved making fires in the fireplace at night when it got cooler, and making s'mores! We went to several state parks around the area as well and loved to adventure! Seriously the best time!!! We hope to return again :).

Wonderful location and wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

This was our second summer vacation at White Tail Run, and we loved it even more this time. The house is very nice, is well equipped, and Jessica is great to work with.

What we love most though is the location. The property has "end of the road" privacy, with a nice trail right to the Blackwater River. And should you get a clear night...just lay out on the deck and look up! The Milky Way will pop right out, the constellations are great, and to top it off, this year our group saw the most impressive meteor any of us had ever seen!

Very highly recommended - we'll be back next summer.

Owners were extremely professional and helpful to all of our needs!!

  • 4 of 5

A very nice cabin equipped with so many toys for our children to play with. A very quiet and private location with nature surrounding you and plenty of things for all to do and see. We had a minor issue which was dealt with very promptly and professionally by the owner and we were very satisfied w/ our trip.

White Tail Run was everything we were looking for and more.

  • 4 of 5

White Tail Run is a lovely cabin in the Canaan Valley. It sits on a hillside above the Blackwater River, not far from Davis West Virginia. My family and I went there from Florida, to enjoy some winter scenery from early to mid February. It started snowing the day after we arrived and kept it up for most of the time that we were there. I believe that we saw one or more deer every day. The kids had a great time playing in the snow and we all enjoyed the fireplaces.

White Tail Run had everything that we needed and even some things that we didn't know that we would need. It was clean and comfortable. If I could, I would stay there for a very long time. I would and do highly recommend White Tail Run as a great place to go, to get away from it all.

Here's a tip of the hat to Jessica and family for making White Tail Run available for others to enjoy. I hope to return to White Tail Run some day in the future.

If and when I do return, I think that I would avoid Big John's Family Fixins. This restaurant just wasn't what we were looking for.

Beautiful, cozy home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time spending the weekend at White Tail Run. The days were quite cold, so we enjoyed spending time by the fire, talking and eating s'mores. It had snowed several inches the night before we left, but the Timberline community had plowed and laid gravel. We had no trouble managing the roads. I highly recommend this property for a ski trip!
