Great place! Stay here! A guest from Hyattsville, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in December, 2015 Great place! Clean, spacious, and comfortable. Also, Best of Canaan was an awesome agency to work with! Thank you!
Spring Stay Christian M. from Jacksonville, FL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in March, 2015 The house is in a great location of Timberline. There is a guard gate but plenty of room not like a subdivision. The house was large and would accommodate a lot of guest. The house is a little worn even for a ski rental. Kids explored the back yard and had a blast. Hot tub did get hot enough always a plus. Timberline ski resort is very close and friendly but it needs an update in a major way.
Cozy cabin- we had a blast! A guest from Richmond, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in January, 2015 This is a wonderful place to stay if you are looking for a getaway in the mountains or planning to ski at Canaan or Timberline! Clean, cozy, great fireplace, and a semi-working hot tub- we have been two years in a row and hope to come back!
Rustic Cabin Fred D. from Woodbridge, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2014 Beautiful property! Nice location... Needs a little more attention to proper maintenance and maid service before arrival.
Good for the money A guest from Reston, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in February, 2014 This property is a good value for the money. We used it for a bachelor ski weekend with 8 guys and had a blast. The amenities are older and somewhat worn but that is reflected in the price. If you want an brand new, up to date property expect to pay more. The location was great for skiing, short drive to Timberline. The only complaint is that a lot of the firewood was wet so it was hard to maintain a fire.
7 adults, wonderful time! A guest from Richmond, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in January, 2014 We LOVED this place! Awesome location, cozy cabin feel, plenty of room for 10 adults, great hot tub, nice fire, clean, everything was perfect!!
Great Dinner Party House Seth F. from Baltimore, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in January, 2014 We had a great time. No issues, and it served as a comfortable home for our large group as we skiied, slumbered, and socialized. We would definitely come back again.
Great but dated house A guest from Falls Church, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in December, 2013 The house has a wonderful potential. This is the second time we've stayed there. The beds and linens were very clean and comfortable, butthe house itself is not very clean. Dust and spider webs everywhere and if your allergic, be prepared with your meds. Downstairs bathrooms looked clean but had a very bad odor. The house will fit a large family very comfortably giving everyone their space.
Just what the doctor ordered Shannon S. from Columbus, Ohio recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013 This place was fantastic! 4 of us went to get a get a nice escape from city life in Columbus, Ohio and this was the perfect spot for some good R&R. The house was big and spacious and had everything we needed to help enjoy our stay. The hot tub was perfect for the 4 of us but wouldn't be big enough to fit more people, so if we had had more people that could have been a bummer. The views from the cabin were great as through the windows we could see the beautiful fall colors of the trees and saw a few deer as well. Overall we loved our stay and wished we could have stayed longer! We will definitely return to the area and stay in one of the Best of Canaan cabins! Thanks for the much needed getaway!
Perfect fall weekend. Joy S. from Scott Depot, WV recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013 We rented the property just a few weeks before we wanted to stay. Everything was handled easily by the staff. If you have not been to Canaan Valley before plan to arrive before dark, to find house easily. Great Place to stay. Eight people were with us and it handled the number with plenty of space. Everything we needed was there and close proximity to attractions.
Wonderful Experience Brian C. from Hightstown, NJ recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 My family stayed at Otter's Den for several days and really enjoyed the cabin. Definitely would return.
Family vacation Sally W. from Valdosta, Georgia does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 The area was beautiful. The weather great. The house was rustic. The bathrooms were not clean. The bathroom vanity and toliets were extremely low. It appears they were for children.
OVERALL GOOD, MINOR SHORTFALLS A guest from Beacon, NY recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 The location was exactly what we were looking for, private and secluded. However, the only real dissapoinments was that BOTH barbeques were not cleaned and the gas grill was neither filled nor connected. That was one of the things we were looking forward too. Also, we felt that if 5 out of 6 bulbs are out on the ceiling fans, that should have been replaced. Other than that, the set-up was perfect and we had a wonderful stay. Would love to go back!!
perfect A guest from Salyersville, KY recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in February, 2013 Perfect retreat for our group of 10 during snow ski season! The hot tub was wonderful, fireplace a bonus after a long day of skiing. Kitchen is well stocked. Friendly, helpful staff.
2012 Ski Trip Charles C. from South Hill, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in January, 2012 Really neat house with lots of room. Great for skiers because you are paying for what matters which is a warm bed, wood fireplace, kitchen, grills and hot tub - and not a lot of fancy stuff in a house that you are basically just relaxing at night and sleeping in. Price is right. Really great trip.
Property a little run down but accommodating and clean A guest from Falls Church, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in December, 2011 Management company was great. Very responsive to all of our needs.
Otter's Den Christmas visit Richard O. from Rockville, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in December, 2011 We enjoyed our stay at the Otter's Den. The kitchen was well supplied for cooking and the beds were comfortable. The only thing we needed was some kindling or fatwood to get the fireplace started the first night since we arrived after dark and some dishwasher detergent would be great. The hot tub was a bit of a disappointment since the water was not clean yet it appeared as a separate 50 dollar charge on the bill. This is more of a fault of the management company rather than a fault of the house. If you don't plan to use the hot tub I'd get them to take it off the bill in advance. Overall it was a good stay.
Relaxation Terry B. from Hagerstown, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in August, 2011 We had a wonderful relaxing time. A doe and her two fawns were our neighbors giving me many photographic opportunities. Best Reality had all our needs covered. Can?t wait to return to Canaan.
Caroline L. from Akron, Ohio recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2011 Property very private and secluded - perfect location to relax and getaway. property was a little dusty, but overall very nice and would definitely stay there again.
Wonderful! Cindy P. from Tallahassee, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 11 days in June, 2011 We had such a wonderful time. If quiet and relaxation are what you're looking for, this is the place! Almost non-stop opportunity for wildlife observation. Great sites to see nearby and reasonably nearby. Loved it!!
Just a few little improvements wouild make it great... A guest from Reidsville, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in June, 2011 Overall, a nice place. Well laid out, with bedrooms and furniture thoughtfully arranged. Just some little things were noticeable, but they should be attended immediately. Toilet on the upper floor sized for Oompa Loompas, with a toilet seat that is about to fall off. The towel rack and hook did fall off. Blender in kitchen was unusable, and we found no pot lids that fit. Propane tank for gas grill was empty. The sofa bed upstairs was pretty uncomfortable, even for a sofa bed. Still, the good outweighed the bad. There were 9 of us. We filled the whole house, but we were comfortable in the space. We had a very enjoyable stay. Next time we are in the area, we will consider a return.
Otter's Den Private and Affordable A guest from Scott Depot, WV recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in November, 2010 We were sooooo pleased with our stay. The property is very private, even with no leaves on the trees. The kids loved the back woods with the creek and the rope swing. So much room but still cozy. We loved it!
Great Relaxing Escape!!! Kim P. from Trinidad, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in October, 2010 Donna Patrick & Amy were so sweet and very helpful. I would recommend this place and any other that the Best of Canaan may be over. The staff is so helpful and very very down to earth and sweet. We had a GREAT GREAT relaxing time while we were in the Otter's Den. Didnt want to leave!!! Kim Perry
