When I think back to my childhood home, I can say with certainty that my favorite room was the den. It wasn?t a big space, but every inch of it contained the most interesting relics. Books, pictures, family heirlooms and the most comfy furniture were all there to nestle in. With that said, The Den is the perfect name for this ultra comfortable and incredibly convenient two bedroom townhome. Interesting and tasteful décor complimented with antiques will tempt you to relax and retreat inside, but with all of the available onsite amenities and scenery, nature will be calling you to step outside and play. Year-round enjoy easy access to everything Canaan Valley has to offer. Summer visitors will love the outdoor pool, picnic pavilion and volleyball facility. In winter it is a quick drive to the slopes, tube park or ice skating rink. Any time of year, enjoy free WIFI, cable TV and long distance calling. We invite you to visit Canaan and settle into The Den.

Overall a Great Vacation Rental
A guest from Sykesville, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 The Den was as advertised, well maintained and clean, good location provides easy access to Blackwater Falls, Dolly Sods & Seneca Rocks..both the owner & the property management company were very nice and easy to deal with, really enjoyed the community's stocked pond. The only thing that keeps me from giving this a full five stars is that we found the bed in the guest bedroom to be fairly uncomfortable and found it difficult to get a good nights rest. Having said that I would still recommend the property to family & friends.
A guest from Holly Springs, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 Most of the timewe felt like we were in a cabin as it was very quiet and quaint with a beautiful wooded backyard view beyond the nice walkout out porch. Our favorite was the nice pool and lovely WV summer weather. It's clean & well-stocked, quaint & cozy. We felt curiously connected to the owners through the welcoming ways of the home. We enjoyed playing Battleship, as there were many board games & books to choose from. The guys watched lots of tv. We enjoyed a few of their movies, like Homeward Bound. We were able to walk out the back door to order food one night from the restaurant nearby. It was impressive that the garbage men came by each day & that the HOA takes care of daily landscaping maintenance. If we lived closer, we'd book the same place a few times a year. The proximity to natures beauty is ideal. Also, the HOA Mgr was real nice & helpful as a tour guide giving us ideas of where to visit!
Jason H. from Sherman Oaks, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 one of the better decorated and stocked rental properties i've been in in canaan valley area; owner and rental agency were very easy to work with; if make it back again from Los Angeles would definitely re-rent
Tracy B. from New Market, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2016 This place was fantastic. Well-appointed and cozy - probably one of the best rental experiences we have ever had. Would definitely stay here again!
A guest from Alexandria, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in December, 2015 A well appointed rental property which felt like home...from the wonderful kitchen amenities to the backyard to the holiday, fishing and skiing decor. A perfect choice no matter what the weather is outside. Thank you for sharing your home with our family.
Mary R. from Adrian, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2015 Enjoyed our Thanksgiving weekend in the Canaan Valley at the Den. The condo was warm and cozy and stocked with everything we needed to cook our Thanksgiving meal, just as described by the owner. The Best of Canaan staff were amazing to work with. We were concerned about the directions since we were coming in from Michigan and Virginia to a new part of the country and we weren't sure if our gps would work on our phones in the mountains. And it was dark! They gave us great directions directly to the office and then to the condo. Thank you.
A guest from Bridgeport, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015 Quiet and clean! Complex offered many activities. Close to main road so easy to get to where you were going. Kitchen fully equipped.
Karen N. from Little River, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2015 Staying at the Den was a very pleasant experience. The décor was very nicely done and the outdoor facilities were great (pool, playground, beautiful pond, etc.). It was clean and neat with a well equipped kitchen and spacious. We were very pleased with everything and will definitely stay The Den on our next visit to the Valley which I hope will be ski vacation.
Glenda M. from Mount Gretna, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2015 My husband and I along with our 2 small children spent a long weekend at the Den. What a cozy little place! We had a wonderful time! We cooked all of our meals at The Den, and I was shocked at how well the kitchen was stocked, and even the other supplies(tp, paper towels etc..). It was so nice not to have to bring all of that, since we brought lots of other children's toys, books etc.. Our girls loved getting their evening baths in the "big" tub. My husband was thrilled to be able to walk to the pond and fish whenever he wanted. We loved that there was so much to do close by. We did a few small trips here and there, but mainly did a lot at the resort. Most definitely enjoyed our stay, and will keep it in mind for future vacations. Would highly recommend!!
Leanne C. from Elkview, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 My husband and I spent three nights in this rental and it exceeded our expectations! Very clean, nice furnishings and well stocked. The owner was quick to respond, very easy to work with and booking was a breeze. I also found the property management company to be very professional and friendly when I picked up the keys. The Den is located within a "resort complex" that is just a lovely property. We enjoyed the pool, basketball, walking, exploring the area, and just relaxing on the deck and enjoying the refreshing mountain air. I has already recommended this property to friends and family and hope to return soon!
A guest from Oakton, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2015 The property is as-advertised, well-appointed, up-to-date,clean. Good beds. Plenty of towels. Minimal to no noise from adjacent townhomes. The stairs to 2nd floor are somewhat steep. Loved the fireplace and stock of wood. Note: our Apple iPhones or iPads could not connect to WiFi while our Android devices could. There may be a fix, but we did not want to take time out of our vacation to fiddle with phones. Did not even turn on a TV all weekend.
Property Manager Response: Response from Best of Canaan Thank you for the kind words. With regard to the WiFi, the Internet Service Provider confirmed the WiFi system is fully compatible with, and accommodates, iPhones and iPads. The customer service representative from Apple stated that your iPhone and iPad internal settings must be set to WiFi mode. In fact, all of our own personal iPhones and iPads will work just fine. We appreciate you taking the time to review The Den and hope you will return for another stay.
A guest from Bridgewater, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 The Den was a perfect place for our restful, quiet vacation. All amenities were delightful, clean and the location met our needs perfectly. We enjoyed the pleasant quarter mile walk on the property, which gave us the exercise we wanted with lovely views. The fall color was a beautiful bonus in late September.
Teresa G. from Hamiltion, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 The Den was one of the most beautiful vacation homes we have ever stayed in. It is very clean, and everything you need is at your fingertips. The owners really go out of their way to make you feel at home and comfortable. We will definitely be staying here again. Canaan Valley is gorgeous with lots to do, or you can just relax by the pool and chat with the other owners. The people were incredible and the wings at the restaurant are amazing and so is the service. We loved this place...thank you again for such a wonderful vacation!
Jim S. from Groveland, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2014 My wife & I prefer to rent private properties whenever possible rather than a motel room. The Den far exceeded our expectations. It was tastefully decorated, comfortably furnished and spacious. We felt as if we had never left our own home. The Den ranks at the top of our list for accommodations.
A guest from Vienna, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 Nice location, liked the property amenities (pool, fishing pond, etc.) Good to see the Deerfield Restaurant has re-opened and seems to be doing well. The unit was clean, nicely furnished, very comfortable. Plenty of nearby activities in the area. Always expect to see a little precipitation in Canaan and the weather can change quickly, but overall we had good weather. We had a great week and really enjoyed our stay at The Den!
David G. from Huntington, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 May wife and I came in early June for a "get-away" vacation. Our four night stay was delightful. The unit was in excellent condition and very comfortable for relaxing after taking day trips to Blackwater Falls, Dolly Sods, Seneca Rocks, Snowshoe Village, Thomas and other surrounding areas. As a photographer, I many Photo Opps of some beautiful country.
Marianne W. from Columbus, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014 This place was heaven. Couldn't be in a more beautiful area. It was so green and beautiful and quiet. We were there in June and we felt like we had the whole valley to ourselves. It was awesome. The Den is located within driving distance of so many fun things to see and do. It was packed with all the conveniences of home plus some! There were plenty of linens and lots of lamps and lighting plus ceiling fans everywhere to keep it cool. The washer and dryer were huge and wonderful as well. I could go on forever. We cooked all our meals at The Den and I was shocked at all the kitchen was well stocked! My kids LOVED the pool and we somehow managed to get there everyday. We had the whole pool to ourselves every time! It was awesome. One of the highlights of our vacation for sure. The resort offered so many more activities and everything was so well cared for and in great condition. Would highly recommend The Den to anyone. It was an absolute delight to be there for the week!
Andres G. from Burke, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2014 We had a great time in Canaan. The Den was a wonderful experience. From the beginning when the owner contacted us until checkout, everyone was helpful and very friendly. Best of Canaan staff was professional with a welcoming demeanor. Thank you to the Dennisons for their beautiful home. They have decorated it beautifully and the "Den" is very warm.
A guest from Alexandria, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2014 Nice place. Ok for small kids. Good location for being off the mountain - close to the heart of the CV scene on 32 and close to Davis as well. Glad we found this townhouse!
A guest from Matthews, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2013 We booked the Den for a quick skiing holiday right after Christmas. We were extremely pleased with the location of the rental and all of the amenities provided to the guests by the owners. The home is very beautifully furnished and less than 10 mins from all the skiing activities. The weather was not as wonderful, unfortunately, with torrential rain during a good part of the trip. The Den was very comfortable for staying indoors to read and watch football. For any first time travelers to the area, we were told that we were a little early for the skiing season there.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013 Nice relaxing time we did go to the caverns it was really nice! Loved where we stayed it was clean and beds were comfy. Will definitely come back ! We were here for 4 nights I would stay longer next time.
A guest from Arlington, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in August, 2013 It's only fair to say this was our 6th visit over 10 years to The Den. Obviously, we love it and love the Canaan Valley. It's hard to imagine a more relaxing, refreshing vacation spot.

Sandy M. from Proctorville, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2013 This is one of the nicest places! We have been visiting Canaan Valley for many years and few places compare to the Den. Beautiful, spotless, and every little detail perfect! The Deerfield Village also offers lots of summer fun with a nice pool, tennis, volleyball and more. So glad we found this little gem. Thanks to the owners for sharing their home with us!
David R. from Clinton, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2013 We were pleasantly surprised by the overall condition and decor of "The Den". It was absolutely beautiful and I wouldn't change a thing about it. It had all the amenities and all in absolutely perfect working order - so rare these days. When we go back to Canaan Valley, we will ask for "The Den" every time.
Richard C. from S Charleston, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2013 Need to update to accommodate iPads. Was listed as wifi connected . Possibly a new cable hook up to router would work.
Property Manager Response: Response from Best of Canaan Thanks so much for your recommendation, and the heads-up regarding the WiFi. We researched this extensively with the internet service provider as well as with Apple, and can report that the system, including modem, router, and cables, accommodates iPads. Users need to make sure the iPad itself is internally set for WiFi. The iPad does not include a port for direct cable connection to a router".
Berni L. from Hallieford, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in February, 2013 We keep coming back because the house offers everything we want and need. Love the convenience to slopes and Davis. Would like instructions for upstairs master DVD player and a cheese grater, if I had to make a wish list.
A guest from Powder Springs, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2013 We loved our stay! After skiing, snow shoeing, & sledding it was nice to come back to this cozy villa and warm up by the fire. Thanks for the ample supply of firewood. If you like Mexican food, try Hellbender's Burritos.
Karl-Heinz I. from Takoma Park, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 17 days in October, 2012 The only distortion with major impact to our overall satisfaction was hurricane Sandy effecting power an water outage, but that should not count.Karl-Heinz I from Blaubeuren / Germany
A guest from Arlington, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in August, 2012 This was our fifth visit to the Canaan Valley and we loved everything about it but most especially this lovely, comfortable, well-furnished "Den."
A guest from Clarksburg, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2012 The unit was very clean and nicely decorated. The week we were there we experienced all types of weather from 70's to 2 inches of snow! I would highly recommend this unit
Debbie T. from Richmond, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2012 We very much enjoyed our stay at the den. It was such a well decorated, comfortable condo. Wished we could have stayed longer.
