Affordably priced and amazingly nice mountain cottage offers peace and quiet.
Serene with lots of special touches, this beautiful mountain home is well equipped for comfort and convenience. Mother Nature will surround you as you relax in the outdoor hot tub or read on the large private deck. Consider watching a classic movie by a cozy fire after you have finished preparing your favorite meal in the fully equipped kitchen or retreat to the deck for a beverage and amazing star-gazing. Hikers will love the location. This charming cottage provides incredibly easy access to Dolly Sods and all of its beauty! Winter visits will require a 4-wheel drive the spacious carport makes loading and unloading an easier process. Although Foxwood is certainly in a private, secluded setting, it is an easy drive to the slopes at either Timberline or Canaan Valley. Summer visitors can be at Canaan's golf course in no more than 15 minutes!
George L. from Bridgeport, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2016 The location was perfect! The home was spacious and private. My wife and I had a very much needed break from the fast pace of everyday life.
A guest from Charlottesville, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2016 The house was pretty good, and a big plus being dog friendly for my family vacation. Definite a funky kitchen design, being kitchen and mudroom combined. Covered parking area was great during the snow. Had some issues with the hot tub, it was not heating properly (errors showing up on control) and was not clean at the start. Called it in and they sent someone to come look at it. The spa tech mentioned that the tub was under powered for use in the winter temps, and it was in fact unreliable during our stay. He also mentioned that they had replaced the water before our arrival, which is simply not possible. We have a hot tub at home, and I have seen 6 month old water look better than this did. Pet peeve of mine is being told things that aren't true.Overall it was a good trip and we enjoyed our stay, and all the things were fairly minor. Thanks!
Jason P. from quinton, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2015 The house was very comfortable for our family reunion of 8. The seclusion was just what we needed for our new years get together. The house had everything we needed. Wood stove was perfect. The hit tub was a disappointment as it never did work properly even after maintenance came by. We would go back, with the hopes of more snow next time. 4wd a must if they have snow.
Beautiful Location and Very Cozy and Adorable Home
Amber S. from Grove City, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2015 This was a family getaway for Thanksgiving. We had never been to Canaan Valley and I was thrilled to go and "relax and do nothing". The Best of Canaan office was very nice. Although I did most of my stuff online I did talk to them a couple times about my rental. We checked in late after hours and it was easy and convenient to access the key. Check out was also simple. When we picked up our key and map we got a little scared because the map looked as if all of the houses were on top of each other and that's not what we were hoping for. However, they were not. It is in a gated community but you can't see another house from Foxwood. It is out in the woods and very secluded and private. Beautiful lot. The house itself was adorable. The kitchen was more stocked than I had anticipated. We cooked Thanksgiving dinner there so I took a lot of kitchen supplies. I did not need to take anything except for a roaster for the turkey. I definitely over packed. The wood fire place was nice and we had it going the entire time we were there. The open floor concept was nice. The hot tub was a hit with the kids. Even when it was 38 degrees first thing in he morning. The back deck was huge and beautiful. The view from the deck is amazing. Tons of deer every day right at your fingertips. The bedrooms were cozy. Beds were somewhat comfy (for a vacation rental). The overall house was clean. I Still can't get over how stocked the kitchen and the rest of tree house was. I used mine of my own garbage bags laundry soap wood soap etc. loved this house and if we ever go back to Canaan Valley I will definitely stay at Foxwood and use Best of Canaan.
A guest from Poolesville, Maryland recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 Beautiful cottage with access to plenty of hiking trails when the weather is nice or just sit and read a book on the gorgeous deck while watching hummingbirds feed. We definitely will be back when it's time to "recharge" our batteries again.
A guest from Rockville, Maryland recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 The house was very clean and had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet as well as the convenient access to biking and hiking trails in Canaan valley. We would definitely stay at this house again.
A guest from Fairmont, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2015 The home was very nice and suited our purposes fine. Enjoyed the serinity,hot tub and was thankful for the pet friendly decking. We felt the place could of been cleaned better,inside and out but would stay there again.
A guest from Shepherdstown, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2014 We spend the last week of the year every year at Canaan Valley- its a wonderful place to unplug, spend time with friends and family, ski, skate, tube, hike, share great meals, live entertainment, and the beauty of nature.
Reviewed by: Jose M. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2014 A group of college students from DC decided to spent an affordable amount of reservation cost. We originally planned to return home on Tuesday but we decided to stay one more night which wrap up five days and four nights. We stayed in the cabin from Saturday toward Wednesday. This house was filled with full of welcoming-feeling which we never expected. We as college student dedicated into ourselves by given a best behavior which we paid respected to Canaan Valley Cabin Rental Agency. We are all from southern states which we cannot afford to fly back home for the thanksgiving break but we discovered Foxwood which exceeded our expectations and applaud with all of the organization and preparation of our arrival. I spent our times by hiking three different state parks, night bar, cave, last and not least hot tub! Bedding and comfort zone was amazing. There're maximum for 10 people but it should be more than 18 people. We slept random place every singe night. Aside all of the positivity, I wish one thing it's will offer our stay is ski-resort should be open a little bit early. We are hoping to return the location and spend a week at the Foxwood next year!
A guest from Rockville, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 Foxwood was the perfect 4 day getaway. It is quiet, private, and clean. The kitchen is spacious, the deck is the highlight of the cabin, and the hot tub was clean and ready for us upon arrival. The rug in the living room is the only thing I would say needs replaced. The access to the Monongahela and Wildlife Refuge is excellent. Highly recommended.
A guest from Port Saint Lucie, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014 My husband had just returned home from Afghanistan and we took our 2 dogs and 4 year old son for a few quite days in beautiful WV. It was everything we needed it to be. The house is perfect and clean. There was only two things I noticed that I thought could be fixed. The carpet in the living room has a sour smell but only if you are down on the ground like when I was playing with my son can you notice it. This happens to a lot of places that have a ski season so I wasn't surprised by it probably just needs to be steam cleaned or tossed. And the gas grill was not in any condition to use. But there is a charcoal grill so we didn't go without. I plan on bringing my entire family back for ski season and they are picky about where we stay and I think they will love it. We were very sad to leave. My favorite part was laying in the hot tub at night and looking up at all the stars I've never seen so many. It really was a perfect few days. :)
A guest from Washington, DC recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2014 We stayed for a long Easter weekend. Our primary purpose was to escape life for a while in a quiet, secluded cabin and spend time reading. This property mostly fit the bill.The cabin is well outfitted, clean, and comfortable. The sofas proved a little less than ideal for long hours reading, but were improved by using the pillows in the house for extra padding.The two seat rocking adirondack chair on the deck, with supplied cushions, was very comfortable.The king-size master bedroom bed was comfortable.We did not use the hot tub.The area was very quiet. The house is well separated from the neighboring properties, so you have lots of privacy. It also seemed that there were very few people staying in the community. I took a walk down to the lake in the valley and only saw three deer, two geese, a golden eagle, and a few other critters... no people whatsoever.We would return if the area were closer to Washington, DC, but the 3 1/2 hour drive is a disincentive to return to the Davis area.
Denise B. from Aliquippa, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2014 We absolutely loved this house! The house was clean, tastefully decorated and fully stocked. The location was secluded and beautiful. The hot tub was a perfect end to an 11-mile hike through Dolly Sods. The rental agency was friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back!
Dean C. from McDonald, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2014 Foxwood was in a great location away from in the woods. It was very clean and well supplied with everything you need. The hot tub on the snowy deck, with a view of the stars rocked.
A guest from Centerville, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 The location is absolutely breathtaking. We explored the surrounding park but quickly realized that the property we were staying on was better than the surrounding park! The house is incredibly secluded, we couldn't even spot the nearest neighbors. The house itself is beautiful. The condition of the property showed some wear and tear, but this didn't detract from the experience at all. The hot tub was finicky. For the first two days it wouldn't go about 94 which is not that warm, especially for October. It magically worked on the last day and was able to get quite warm. The deck and surrounding nature are great, the pictures here don't do it justice. It is about a 20 minute drive to the nearest grocery store so it is the perfect amount of seclusion. The house is deep in a gated community so you feel like you are really going to the edge of civilization.
Property Manager Response: Response from Best of Canaan Thanks for taking time to post a review. Please keep in mind that our maintenance staff is always happy to help with a finicky hot tub. We are just a phone call hours a day.
Jennifer D. from Burke, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 Foxwood was so comfortable and clean. The beds were cozy and the entire property was lovely. We plan to stay there again next year.
Jane H. from Gap, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013 My husband and I had a relaxing four days in the Canaan Valley. It was our first trip to the area. We were there during the peak of the leaves changing so it was absolutely beautiful. The house location was great--we felt like we were in the woods by ourselves. We could not see any houses from the deck and very rarely were there any cars on the road. The house met all of our needs. The kitchen was well stocked and there was nothing that we needed that was not available to us. Highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a relaxing time away.
Latisha I. from McKeesport, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2013 We were completely "wowed" from moment one at Foxwood. The house was immaculately clean, smelled fresh, and was equipped with anything we could possibly need. Saying the kitchen is well stocked is a total understatement. The place is nicely decorated and had plenty of room for 3 adults and 2 kids. The deck off the back was one of our favorite hangouts. All of the beds were so comfortable and had plenty of pillows. The private access to Dolly Sods at the top of the community was a definite bonus and we highly recommend checking it out. We are already planning trips back. Foxwood was just what we needed for a nice relaxing 5 night trip. The only negative - and after such a completely lovely trip I didn't want to put a bad thing on here - was the hot tub was quite quirky, only working about 1/4 of the time. Best of Canaan would have sent someone up but we told them it was unnecessary during our stay. Everyone at Best of Canaan was amazingly friendly and helpful with suggesting things to see and do. So happy with our whole experience!
Property Manager Response: Response from Best of Canaan Thanks for taking time to tell us about your stay. We are always happy to hear that our guests enjoyed the our beautiful mountains. We hope you will return soon.
KELLY D. from BARBOURSVILLE, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2013 We spent a long weekend in Foxwood for my son's 16th birthday. It snowed non-stop the whole time we were there, but the hot jacuzzi and warm fire place made it nice and cozy for all of us. Perfect weather to go skiing, and the roads were plowed for easy access. We are planning to make another trip in the future to stay at this charming house. Sincerely,The Davis's
A guest from Roanoke, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2012 Property was as advertised except for the hot tub problem. This units tub has an issue with the jets which would resullt in the unit shutting down. After about an hour cool down you could hit the breaker and fire it back up....but who wants that hassle. Otherwise a great place.
A guest from Fredericksburg, Virginia recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2012 The place was amazing. The location is very secluded - but we didn't see any wildlife on the property. The house is immaculate. Of course, there were mouse droppings but you are in the woods. Everything was well stocked - didn't need to bring much. Other guests had left charcoal (so did we) and there were little things like saran wrap and baggies etc. My family was amazed at the place. Thanks for a great stay in a beautiful setting.
A guest from Washington, DC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2012 We had a great stay at Foxwood over a long weekend in May. Donna was very helpful in providing us information and getting us settled. The house was as described and pictured - very comfortable for 4 people - spent a lot of time on the deck! Thanks for the great stay! we hope to come back again!
Jillyn D. from Alexandria, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2012 We stayed at Foxwood for a week, and had a lovely time. The view from the deck is nice, the hot tub is heaven, and the fireplace added to the cozy ambiance. The house had everything one could ask for, including an espresso machine and coffee grinder, a variety of wine openers, and enough kitchen wear to cook for and serve a small army! As always, Donna and Amy at Best of Canaan were a pleasure to work with and had great suggestions for both activities and dining in that area. It was a lovely escape, and we didn't want to leave!
Shawn S. from Virginia Beach, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2011 Everything was great for us. From the staff who booked our stay to the location of the property and a beautiful deck with a hot tub which was already running and warm once we arrived. Great fireplace and enough wood to burn which was awesome after the hot tub during the snow. Will visit again. No doubt!!
A guest from Farmdale, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2011 The temp range was ~40 at night and ~60 in the day. Unfortunately, wind and rain had removed most of the leaves from the trees the week before our stay, but it was still a very nice visit. We had a great time. Everything at the house was in excellent condition. It's a very cozy place to stay with lots of things to do close by.
A guest from Fairmont, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2011 My wife and I spent three nights at Foxwood. The home is very well kept. The stars at night were wonderful. We enjoyed the deck and the hot tub. House is well decorated, making you feel "at home".
Jeremy M. from Bethesda, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 Foxwood was the perfect setting for our anniversary weekend. Away from it all but close to the best of West Virginia.
A guest from Staunton, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2011 Very nice house surrounded by woods and small brook -- private and peaceful! Lovely deck & hot tub, the place is well cared-for.

A guest from Sterling, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2011 This wasn't our first stay at Foxwood, but our first with Best of Canaan. Great experience all around and a wonderful weekend getaway. Foxwood is a nice cabin and one of our favorites on Old Timberline.In case you're concerned about a previous comment mentioning mice... we saw no droppings, just a few set traps.
Wonderful home,VERYComfortable beds. Layout was great.Kitchen had everything you could ask for. Had a little trouble with the
A guest from Baltimore, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2011 The property managers were just wonderful.Would stay there again mice and all!
Property Manager Response: Response from Best of Canaan Thanks so much for staying with us and for taking the time to write a review. We apologize that some of or woodland creatures were obviously seeking refuge from the winter promise that our rental properties are treated on a routine basis for "uninvited guests". Your patience with Mother Nature is greatly appreciated.
