The Getaways Getaway
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 staying in the highest valley of its size east of the Mississippi River. Whether it is a cabin for two or a grand family reunion, there are accommodation’s for all occasions.
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 is a great start. Add in unbound outdoor recreational opportunities and the lively mountain towns of Thomas and Davis, and you have the making for an incredible vacation 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. Several real estate companies are located along Rt. 32 in Canaan Valley and are here to assist in all your booking needs.
This day I was given permission to visit a few homes in Old Timberline. Exposing all that is great and distinctive to renting a vacation home in Canaan Valley. Located in Davis, West Virginia, Canaan Valley is a short six mile drive south of town and home to Canaan Valley State Park, three ski resorts, and Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge.
How Do You Like Your View
Ironically, the biggest complaint I have heard from visitors is that…IT’S TOO QUIET! Canaan Valley is where you are guaranteed and uninterrupted night’s sleep. With your quiet time comes dark skies. Some of the darkest found anywhere on the east coast for that matter. On a cloudless night you can see stars from one horizon to the other with the naked eye.
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.
