Okay, with a few caveats
Martin C. from Walkersville, MD does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2016 The cabin is pretty nice with good amenities. One bad experience: I was sleeping in the upstairs loft, which is a very nice area with a great bed. However, Saturday morning I woke up with a mouse ON ME. It was very disconcerting. I know it's hard to control nature, but maybe this house needs some rodent control or extermination. The next night, I slept in one of the twin beds downstairs. No mice visited me, but those mattresses are pretty bad.
Beautiful, Private Property with Expansive Front and Back Lawns
A guest from Lakewood, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2016 We booked this property after extensive searching for the perfect vacation home. The house was everything we were looking for and more. It is beautiful inside and out. The lawn is expansive and well manicured and our young children had a great time running freely in the open space and swinging in the hammock. We loved that the house felt quiet and private as it was completely surrounded by trees, yet we were close enough to local attractions and Davis for grocery shopping. We hiked to breathtaking views on the valley view trail which we accessed just minutes from the house inside the gated community. We also drove to Lindy Point and Blackwater Falls lookouts in Blackwater Falls State Park. There were many other attractions in the area as well and we wish we could have stayed longer. Though we had a wonderful stay we had one issue with a musty smell in the basement where two of the bedrooms are located. Since we wanted to sleep on the same floor as our children they were the only bedrooms we were able to use. Also, the oven is under a kitchen counter with electronic controls easily accessible to young children. Our 1 yr old was able to turn the oven on on his own by simply pressing the electronic buttons. If traveling with tots, the oven area may need to be blocked off for safety. Overall, the house is spectacular and is a real gem. We highly recommend!
CAROL F. from FORT ASHBY, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 Our family, which included three generations, enjoyed an exceptional vacation in the home "Starry Nights". The interior and exterior offered spacious and ample space for all the activities we did. The openness and brightness of the home made for a very pleasant and comfortable atmosphere. We have vacationed at this site for three years and hope to return next summer. Our only complaint is that the terrace area has become overgrown and would be much more attractive and have a better view from the deck if it were trimmed and maintained.
Property Manager Response: Response from Best of Canaan Just a note to let you know that the patio has been trimmed and swept. Back to beautiful!
John H. from st michaels, maryland recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2016 WONDERFUL HOUSE VERY CLEAN AND WELL STOCKED. THE STAFF AT CANAAN'S BEST IS VERY PLEASANT TO DEAL WITH.WILL RENT THIS HOME AGAIN.
ALLAN W. from ROSCOE, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2016 The cabin was in a beautiful area and in great shape. Plenty of wood stacked by the door, plenty of dishes, cook ware, towels, etc. This will be a repeat cabin visit for us. We visit Old Timberline twice a year and this is the absolute first we will be doing a repeat cabin. Absolutely awesome cabin!! I would greatly recommend this cabin to anyone who is planning a visit to this awesome mountain area!
CHRISTIE E. from SOUTH POINT, OHIO recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2016 Everything was well maintained in the home and we loved the outside features of the house. They had plenty of cookware and the beds were actually comfortable.
A guest from Arlington, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2016 This home is lovely. It is beautifully decorated (better than the pictures) and the beds are high quality. It snowed our first night here and it was very cozy to have the fireplace. Thanks for the supply of kindling and wood! We enjoyed the hot tub and the stars did not disappoint. The proximity to Timberline ski resort and hiking at Blackwater Falls is another plus. We hope to be able to come back.
John S. from Lykens, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2015 This place was beautiful,roomy,very well stocked,well furnished,and well built. Decorated beautifully for the holidays. We would highly recommend this home to rent. Thank you to everyone for being so kind and setting us up for a wonderful vacation!!!
A guest from Loysville, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in November, 2015 We stayed at Starry Nights for 9 days and we were very pleased with the house.. it was very well supplied and spotless. The owner also had a decorated Christmas tree when we arrived which was very welcoming... I definitely recommend this house!!
Paula W. from Shinnston, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2015 My husband and I rented this cabin for our 20th Anniversary. This home is the most beautiful and comfortable home that we have ever stayed in! The view was spectacular and the home is far enough out that it is extremely peaceful, the rooms were spacious, the house was spotless, the kitchen had everything you could possibly need for all meal types along with grilling utensils and the beds were comfortable. The fireplace was perfect for the cold evenings but the basement couch was cozy enough for an afternoon nap. The hot tub was an important factor in renting this particular home and the upkeep on it was the best of any that we have been in.I don't think we could have gotten better customer service. I can not say enough good things about the staff at Best of Canaan. Donna was fantastic and even came and let us in after locking ourselves out at 10:30 at night.I will be back but with the rest of the family so that they can enjoy it as much as we did.Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to stay in this lovely home!If you have the opportunity to rent in this area, I would suggest this property over any other.
A guest from East Berlin, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2015 It was a very nice home with the comforts of home. We had 3 families stay and we all had private areas and areas to socialize.
The best house we've stayed in over the past 3 years
Lauren S. from McLean, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 Well appointed home, fully stocked with kitchen tools for someone who enjoys cooking. Comfortable hang out spots all over. Gorgeous light floods the living and dining room, highlighting the property as you look out. Only downsides were the musty smelling closets in the lower level bedrooms. We had a great stay!
Starry Nights Property - You can see the stars perfectly!
Dennis D. from Wooster, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2015 We have been visiting Canaan Valley for 22 years. We have stayed in at least 10 locations in the Valley. This home is clearly one of the nicest rentals we have enjoyed. The lofted bedroom and open kitchen and family room plan are wonderful. Appreciate the care given to this property to make it inviting to guests!
Violet S. from Philippi, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2015 We had a wonderful Easter Break at Starry Nights. The house is beautiful and was perfect for the four of us. Hot tub was wonderful after a day of fishing. Beds were comfortable, kitchen well-equipped with everything you might need (even had a crockpot!). Lots of space to spread out and get comfortable. One thing to be aware of- if two or more showers are going at the same time, the hot water turns off to the shpwer heads. It will still run at the faucet though. Found that out the hard way! Quite a "wake-up"! House is fairly secluded, not much traffic so you can enjoy the peace and quiet. The staff at Best of Canaan are awesome! We have been renting in that area for over 15 years now, usually 3-4 times a year and can honestly say the Best of Canaan truely is the Best of Canaan!
Melissa C. from Washington, DC recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2015 Our group of 8 adults spent 3 nights at Starry Nights and didn't want to leave! The house was plenty spacious for all us. While the house had a big open feeling, there was plenty of space for different activities to take place. The kitchen was fully stocked with pans, utensils and other kitchen gadgets that made cooking for a crowd very easy. The backyard was very serene and peaceful and equipped with a hot tub, hammock, horse shoes and a ton of fire wood. We can't wait to return!
Robert K. from Crofton, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2015 This was our third time staying at Starry Nights - every time has been perfect. Great views, close to slopes and plenty of room. Highly recommend.
Sara H. from Venetia, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2014 This house is awesome! Everything you need for a wonderful stay! Location is great. Folks at Best of Canaan were the best!
Samuel K. from Loysville, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in November, 2014 This home was spotless and well organized. The owner put up a Christmas tree prior to our arrival which was very welcoming to us!
Lisa S. from Creston, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2014 We have been renting vacation homes for many years. This was the best home we have rented. It felt like a Home not a House. The home was clean, decorated beautifully & a perfect size for our different family members. This is the 2nd time I have rented from Best of Canaan. The ladies in the office r polite & very helpful. The views from the windows where outstanding, the yard is large enough for kids to enjoy & us adults with the horse shoes, hammock & Fire Pit. We enjoyed the Air Hockey table & DVD library. The only complaint (which is small) is...there was not enough kitchen supplies (knives, bowls ect). Plenty of plates, cups & glasses. I can't wait to stay here again. It was the most relaxing vacation I have had in a long time.
Carol F. from Friendsville, Maryland recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in July, 2014 We were quite impressed with "Starry Nights". The location was ideal, level, well-maintained yard, which was great for family outdoor activities. The inside was clean and spacious with plenty of natural light from the enormous windows, and the layout allowed for privacy. The large dining room table was the center of family gatherings for meals and evening board games. When not eating in, we enjoyed the Golden Anchor and Sirianis. We are definely planning on returning again.
Terrie C. from Vienna, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2014 We had a wonderful time in this very spacious and beautiful house. We had everything we needed and the kids really enjoyed the air hockey table. We will definitely be staying here again!
A guest from Baltimore, Maryland recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 Awesome property, great amenities. Wish the checkout time was a little later, 10 AM is a little early when all the towels have to be washed before leaving.
A guest from Washington, DC recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2014 Had a very nice experience with this property. It was in good repair and just like it appeared in the pictures. I would definitely recommend it to a friend!
Haley F. from Tiffin, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2014 My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Starry Night and appreciated the friendly and efficient staff of Best of Canaan! This was our first visit to West Virginia and it was a wonderful getaway. One of our favorite things about the property was its seclusiveness and privacy. The house was well maintained and furnished and provided everything we could possibly need. Our only complaint was that over our 5 day visit, there were two occasions in which workers drove onto the property to deliver stone and mulch without notifying us. It was rather unsettling being 5 women alone with random people arriving on the property and us not knowing. Other than that we loved our stay and can't wait to come back! We will definitely go through Best of Canaan for sure!
A guest from Cuyahoga Falls, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2014 This home is beautiful. One look to the sky at night and you know why this place is called Starry Nights. The views from the windows are amazing, especially during a snowstorm which we experienced in March. We spent the days tending to a fire in the fireplace, playing board games and lounging around, just the break this family of 6 needed. The bedrooms in the walkout basement were colder than the rest of the house and the kids (9 and under) felt a little uneasy at night with double glass doors in the basement hallway that have no blinds or curtains. Mom and dad did, too. Would have felt more secure overall with some deadbolts from the inside in addition to the keyed locks. Also, after one short rest in the hot tub, I broke out in a rash all over my arms and legs which lasted for days. This has never happened to me before. Regrettably, I never got back in the hot tub because of this. It would have been a beautiful place to be under the stars and snowfall. Upon checkout, I mentioned this to the management who said the hot tubs are treated with bromine. Find out if you are sensitive to that before stepping in the hot tub. The only reason I didn't give five stars all around is because of the hot tub. It is a huge selling feature and I was bummed that I couldn't spend more time in it.
Leonardo F. from Williamstown, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2014 Nice location for snow tubing and skiing, but the house could use some updating as it looks better in pictures than it does in person. The living room and dining room were nice, but the family room and basement were a bit dated. Also, the entertainment system did not work properly and trying to figure out how to turn on the TV was next to impossible. The front door lock needs to be replaced as it got stuck several times. Overall, the house was okay but $275 a night is a bit much for the property. I would have preferred to pay around $175 for it?s current condition.
Danielle K. from Crofton, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2014 Wish we had planned to stay longer! The cabin was clean and very spacious. The fireplace (and starter logs- thank you!) was a family favorite and the massive windows made for some truly amazing views of all the snow. Hot tub was a huge hit with all the adults, and we were pleasantly surprised at how well stocked the kitchen was. We would definitely stay there again! Thank you for the wonderful vacation!
A guest from St. Clairesville, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2013 We absolutely loved our stay at Starry Nights! The property is beautiful and secluded in a wooded area. We enjoyed the fireplace and the hot tub on our cold evenings. Would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to get away for a weekend. The slopes were not open yet when we went, which didn't effect us at all because we were able to fully enjoy the beautiful home!
Douglas C. from Harrisburg, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in September, 2013 Starry Nights is in a great setting. Hardly any traffic on Bobcat Road and great privacy. Huge back and front yard. Enjoyed the hot tub and chiminea on a nightly basis. Wildlife in the yard on a daily basis. The house is very well decorated and maintained. The water pressure is not the best in the showers but this was the only flaw, and one we could deal with. Plenty of room to roam. We can't wait to return again next year! Highly recommend this beautiful house. As always the staff at Best Of Canaan, especially Donna, is simply the best! They are great to deal with every year! Thank you to the owners of Starry Nights for opening up their beautiful home to our family.
Kathy G. from Dixie, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013 Is a very nice home,plenty of room on the 3 levels,great location,nice place to go out and just walk,hardly any traffic noise,the house is really built husband and myself had a very nice stay at this home."Starry Nights" sky made the hot tub very relaxing,or just sitting out by the fire pit was very nice also. The realtor staff are really nice. This just may be our next house we stay in year after year..
Jim B. from Morgantown, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 We have been vacationing in Canaan Valley for many years and this is simply the best place we have stayed. There is a lot of room inside and outside to play and have fun. The place looks brand new and is well-equipped. The location is more isolated and peaceful than other properties. Great place for family with kids. Will definitely be staying here again in the future.
Starry Nights Property - You can see the stars perfectly!
A guest from Wooster, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 This home was beautifully designed and maintained. It had a spacious living area with full window views that allowed you to enjoy the out-of-doors even while inside. Clean, wonderful deco, and comfort. Easy access to the Lakeview and Spruce Tree hiking trails and canoeing activities. Only limitation we found was that the water pressure in showers and sinks was low. We would definitely return in the future for another stay at this property. Thank you!
Doug B. from Wheeling, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2013 SWA is a great home with many amenities. We loved our stay in Feb. Our pet loved it as well. The location is one of the best in the valley. The kids enjoyed the game room and hot tub. The only down side was the beds. A king and queen size bed, instead of a queen and double would be nice. Overall, a great place to stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Best of Canaan Thanks for taking time to review. Please note that this home, formerly SWA, is now Starry Nights. The house has a new owner that has added another bedroom. The house now offers 3 queen beds and 2 twin beds. It is still a wonderful location and great vacation value. It is no longer pet friendly however.
A guest from Morgantown, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2013 As usual, the staff of Best of Canaan were very professional. Much appreciated these days, as many places do not put the customer first. My only complaint is that the property, although neat and clean, was not spotless. That said, if a property is being professionally cleaned, upon entering one should be able to smell that a variety of cleaning products were recently used. This is the only way guests know that cleaning and disinfecting was done.This grounds of this property are absolutely perfect with a flat open yard and wooded areas which provide privacy. As far as we are concerned...that was money well spent! Thank you.
A guest from Gainesville, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2012 The property is fantastic, can't see a house from any window! Wood fireplace, great hot tub, and very roomy! The only suggestion would be to have a few more cooking utensils and to have a snow shovel! Otherwise, two thumbs up and would definitely rent this place again!
Property Manager Response: Response from Best of Canaan Thanks for taking time to review the house. It is definitely in a beautiful setting. We wanted to let you know that a number of kitchen supplies have been added to a snowshovel too! Thanks again for your input. We hope you will return!
Yavuz A. from Bethesda, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2012 If the appliances were not worn out, the couches didn't didn't stink (literally), the stove was not unusable, and we had some dishwasher detergent on the first night that we arrived, it would have been perfect.It is a beautiful house, close enough to the ski slopes (about 2 miles away) but far from the traffic.
