A guest from Annapolis, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2016 Although we've owned our own home in Canaan Valley for many years, we often rent for our family and friends. When we do, we deal exclusively with Best of Canaan. They are definitely "the best" in Canaan Valley!
A guest from East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2016 The condo was clean, except the couch had terrible wet dog odor. Appliances are dated but functional. Cooking pots and utensils were appropriate and had a lot of condiments. Mattress in master bedroom is extremely hard and uncomfortable; the pad on it was too old and flattened/warned out--they should either replace the mattress or at least add a new thick mattress pad. Bed linens did not feel freshly cleaned. Directions in map provided by management are limited, even though the office is only minutes away. I recommend arriving before dark.Overall, for the prize, the condo offers a lot for people who want to save and cook all meals and simply relax. We made the best of it, but it did not meet our expectations. It might do for other visitors who don't mind the odor. The dog order and hard mattress should be addressed!!!!
Reviewed by: Robert M. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 Stayed in "The Penthouse" in mid-July. We wanted a quiet stay as it was a "working vacation" for me and I needed to do some reading. There was only one other family staying in the building, so it worked well. Not much of a view, only a forest, but ok. Unit was nice and clean, though there was a musty smell upon entering. Unit had not been rented all summer. The water heater had been turned off and I had problems turning it back on. Management sent out a repairmen quickly to turn it on. The charcoal grille is a good distance away from the unit and not feasible for use. Towels smelled musty as well. Overall we enjoyed the stay and I would recommend it to friends and family after noting the above. It is perfect if you want rest and quiet.
Property Manager Response: Response from Best of Canaan Response from property owner: Having owned Beaver Ridge 121 for 22 years, I always welcome constructive comments from guests. The view from my property is the Monongahela National Forest. Just a few feet from my deck is an abundance of wildlife. Prior to your arriving, a family had visited for the 4th of July weekend. Instructions for turning on the water heater are posted in the unit. I will add additional copies of the instructions. The grill for Ash Lodge is located at the opposite end of the building in a picnic area and is used often by residents and guests. Best of Canaan and their housekeeping services have always taken great care so that the unit is 100%. At any time during your arrival or stay, if anything is not up to your standards, Donna Patrick and her crew will do their best to address any concerns. Thank you for your overall recommendation. I am glad you enjoyed your stay at The Penthouse.
A guest from Washington, DC does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 Price, location and cleanliness are all great qualities. Nothing "penthouse" about it. Dated and cheap furnishings. Feels like staying a dormitory rather than a wilderness vacation property. Arrived late to find that policy is to make the guest turn on water and flip circuit breakers to turn on severely undersized water heater. A nightmare with a fussy baby that can't explain cheapskate policy. Ironically they request you leave on hot water to be convenient for cleaners!
Cleveland C. from Lakeland, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 30 days in April, 2016 Very pleasant. Accommodations were comfortable. Had some trouble with internet,but problems were resolved.Will stay again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Best of Canaan Thanks for taking time to submit a review for The Penthouse. We are happy that the Beaver Ridge recently updated and upgraded their Internet service. Thanks for your patience while all of the bugs were worked out.
Sarah R. from Grasonville, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2014 My husband and I stayed for the Thanksgiving holiday. The Penthouse was clean, well kept and well appointed. We were super lucky to have snow for our stay too! The staff at Best of Canaan were super helpful and friendly. We will definitely be back to stay!
A guest from GAINESVILLE, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2014 We enjoyed our stay at this property. It was quiet, well supplied and clean. The beds were comfortable. Our only difficulty was with the Wifi. Only one person could get on the connection at a time which can cause trouble with a family. Great place though.
A guest from Annandale, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2013 The condo had everything we needed. Because the condo is located in the upper corner of the building, the unit was very quiet with a nice view of the forest.
Matthew G. from Chevy Chase, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2013 There was a shortage of toilet paper, which was annoying. The water and water heater were off - easy enough to turn on, once we had instructions, and were told where to look for instructions. Instructions asked that we wash towels, but there was no laundry detergent. Nothing really wrong, and the unit was nice, but a little more attention to details would be nice.
A guest from Bethesda, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2013 We liked the good service of Best of Canaan, the condo, the cleanliness and comfort. Next time we go to Canaan, this will be our starting point in search of accommodation.
A guest from Arlington, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2012 wifi was barely functional. It would have been nice to have known that the water needed to be turned on as well as knowing that the breakers for the hot water heater and stove needed to be flipped. A note on the refrigerator could have explained this.
Property Manager Response: Response from Best of Canaan Thanks for your comments and for taking the time to complete our review process. We are always interested in hearing from rental guests and consider your insight as an opportunity to repair and improve our vacation rental properties. We wanted to let you know that the Internet provider for this property was called and has been on site to increase the strength of the WIFI signal.

A guest from Morgantown, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 43 days in November, 2012 Stayed at the condo while working in area. Very satisfied with the condo. Property management personnel were terrific to work with.
BRANDON J. from Bristow, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2012 The staff is awesome! We love you guys! You rock! We usually stay in the Den but it was unavailable. This unit was a double the price, but not as nice. (I do understand we got a discount on the den) The appliances could surely be updated, the microwave doesn't work. However overall the unit was clean, in a great location, and I really enjoyed my stay and will always ONLY Contact Best of Canaan for all my rental needs. Jodi and I love you guys!
Susan P. from Ames, IA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 We recently spent a long weekend in the mountains and this rental was a great choice for lodging. It was midway between Davis and Canaan is a beautiful wooded location. The condo was just as the pictures show it. The pool was nice and not crowded at all. In fact we had it to ourselves a few times. The only downside was that we did not have any cell phone reception there. But there is a land line and wi-fi. I would definitely stay there again!
A guest from Champaign, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2012 This rental was very clean and well equipped with everything you would need. We loved our stay there both for the comfort and convenience of the rental and for the nearby hiking and sight seeing opportunities. Best of Canaan was great to work with. We were very happy with our stay.
A guest from Frederick, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2012 The water was not turned on when we arrived. Also the hot water heater was turned down. This should have been down a few days before we arrived. This was not acceptable. There wasa dirty sock under one of the beds along withcandy wrappers.

Dave B. from Severeville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2011 very helpful rental staff. would caution the housekeepers to check dryer vent as it was very clogged and could cause a bad fire. very quiet location with woods nearly surrounding property.
Property Manager Response: Response from Best of Canaan Wanted to let you know that the dryer vent at The Penthouse was recently cleaned and the housekeepers have been cautioned to be sure and take time to clean the trap with every visit. The dryer is working we appreciate your concern. We hope that you will return to our beautiful mountains for another visit. Thanks for staying with Best of Canaan!
Linda M. from Baltimore, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in August, 2011 This was our first trip to WV and we loved it. We were a little apprehensive and hoping we made a good choice at staying at Beaver Ridge. We are looking forward to returning next year. Would give a 10 plus.
kenneth h. from Bloomington, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 The Management staff was very helpful working with us. We have never been to the area before and they were amazing and very kind with info and service.
A guest from Vienna, VA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2011 great location. place itself was ok. TV in main area needs to be replaced, very few books or games if you were looking for something to do with the kids there. rental agents were great
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2010 We called The Best of Canaan they suggested The Penthouse as a reasonable priced and easily accessible lodging. The top floor end unit location was quiet with a cozy atmosphere. Every thing in the unit was clean. We had a wonderful stay and are considering returning with another couple since the 2 bedrooms with separate baths allow privacy. We cooked one night and found the kitchen well appointed. We enjoyed the fireplace and views from the deck. Our rental agent Donna Patrick was especially helpful.
