Unique Rental Properties of Canaan Valley, West Virginia

Posted on


  Canaan Valley, West Virginia is unique when it comes to short term rental properties.  Not because the actual homes are one a kind or out of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural brilliance.  Properties are unique because of the experience afforded when in the highest valley of its size east of the Mississippi River.

  Views, peace and quiet, personal space, and the darkest of nights, alone, make for a true getaway from the realities of life.  Edward Abby sums it up best with his quote “Freedom begins between the ears.” and Canaan Valley is a great start.   Add in the unbound outdoor recreational opportunities and you have the making for an epic vacation rental opportunity.


  Since the mid 1980’s development in Canaan Valley shifted from hunting and fishing cabins to vacation homes.  Today you will find hundreds of accommodations throughout Canaan Valley in every conceivable configuration.  


  This day, I was given permission to visit a few homes in Old Timberline for the purpose of writing the Tucker County tourism blog. Exposing all that is great and distinctive to renting a vacation home in Canaan Valley.


  How do you like your view?


  Up high.


  Down Low.


  From the hammock and horseshoe pit.


    Ironically, the biggest complaint I have heard from visitors is that...IT’S TOO QUIET!  Canaan Valley is where you are guaranteed an uninterrupted night’s sleep.


  The picture window effect is a common theme in just about every location.  Wide open floor plans make for the ultimate social setting, accompanying all those views to die for.
