    Barbara R from Inverness, Fl recommends this vacation rental

    We were 13 adults and 3 kids that came here for a family reunion and it was perfect for our needs. Plenty of bedrooms for all and spacious enough that we weren't tripping over each other. Very clean and well taken care of. Plan on returning again in 2 years as next year has already been booked elsewhere. We enjoyed the waterfalls and a picnic at Blackwater Falls Park otherwise just stayed at the house the entire time. The only minor complaint would be they need retractable shades on overhead window over the dining table as the sun was in our eyes as we were eating dinner.

    We have stayed here 5 years now every June. It is a great house and easily accommodates the group. Arrived early, and the ladies at the Rental office were helpful in contacting the house to see if we can place items in the fridge and freezer before we golfed. When we arrived we met the owner, and he also was very accommodating to our needs. The cleaning personnel were also helpful, and just made our arrival convenient and less stressful. Thanks to All!

    We have been staying at this house for several years as our annual ski weekend. the house is perfect plenty of room so you don't feel like you're on top of each other. The kitchen has everything you need for a large crowd. Access to the slopes couldn't be better. Beds are comfortable. House is clean and well cared for. Everyone at the realty company has bee friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the ski resort has been looking old and tired. Ski conditions have not been the best. Our crowd has dwindled so we will be giving up the house for next year.

    We have stayed in this rental house for Thanksgiving for many years. This house accommodates our family (15+)very, very well. Over the years the house has had several renovations, including enlarging and remodeling the kitchen/dining area, and adding many bedrooms and bathrooms. We very much enjoy our vacations here, and hope to spend many more Thanksgivings here! I gave a 4-star evaluation of the general condition because one of the dishwashers was not functioning.

    We spent a week with our extended family of 16 adults and kids at Mountain Lair. It was a great house and location for our family. The house provides really nice communal space and lots of rooms and nooks to have some alone time as well. The house was very clean and we really enjoyed the kitchen - spacious and well-appointed. We loved the location. The neighborhood has a clean pond for swimming, tennis courts, and lots of trails. And there are so many fun things to do in the Canaan Valley region.

    We have discovered a new tradition! After many years of staying over 10 miles away in an eight-bedroom house, we now will be annually staying slope side in Mountain Lair! Granted it is more costly to rent, but the convenience, accommodations, etc. were well worth it for everyone in our group. The only drawback was the small parking lot. But once everyone arrived, including one couple from Florida, nobody needed their vehicle until we were leaving on Sunday. There is a parking lot close by for the extras. Like I said in the title, "Great Place!! Great Time!!" Everyone is looking forward to returning to our new location next year!!

    We have been renting this house for about 4 years now. We always enjoy our stay. The house is big enough that you don't feel like you're on top of one another. The kitchen is well stocked with enough dishes, pots, silverware and glasses for our large group. Love the two ovens, two dishwasher. We just wish the hot tub was a little bigger. It's a perfect place to stay with family and friends.

    Overall Mountain Lair is a very nice and huge property. During the first part of the week we had almost 20 people and everyone had plenty of space. Everything was very clean.

    High points:
    1. The kitchen was wonderful. Plenty of everything.
    2. They had the best hot tub I have ever seen at a rental property. It got a lot of use and worked great. it even had a built in radio.
    3. The electronic equipment throughout the house was excellent. They even had Blu-ray players connected to most of the TVs.
    4. The huge porch and porch furniture was very nice.

    Low Points:
    1. The Internet connection was really bad. It would come and go and sometimes not work for long periods of time.
    2. There were ants in the kitchen. Not a lot but enough to bother some of the ladies.
    3. The satellite TV service was very spotty at times. It did not take much cloud cover to mess up reception.
    4. We had problems with the two upstairs toilets. It did not take much to stop them up. It seems there flow rate was poor. Plenty of other toilets though.

    But overall we really enjoy our stay at Mountain Lair and would probably return but would like to see a significant Internet connectivity improvement.

    We had a great time leaving the kids behind for a Memorial Day weekend to celebrate my husband finishing up his master's program. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need (TWO of most things!) and we never ran short of plates, linens, or felt crowded. The only downside is the wi-fi is a little slow - might want to get a faster connection for streaming movies (it cut out several times). Overall, would absolutely stay here again.

    • Manager Responded on 6/15/2015

      Thanks for taking time to complete the review survey. We appreciate the time. We are sorry you had difficulty streaming movies via WIFI. Our rural mountain area does not have super fast WIFI like more populated areas do. We do however have some incredibly beautiful night skies!

    For the passed 2 years we have stayed at Mountain Lair. We have been making a yearly trek to Timberline for over 20 years. This is our favorite house. There are 20 of us, with extra people who just come for the day to ski. The house is large enough to accommadate us all. With the three floors you would hardly know there were that many people there. The beds are comfortable, bathrooms are clean and the kitchen is to die for. The improvements in the kitchen since last year are amazing. The new stove with a griddle, 2 ovens, and large center island were perfect for cooking and preparing meals. Easy ski in and out access to slope. Perfect weekend. We will be back next year.

    We have been renting this house for 5 years and wouldn't dream of skipping a year. We go there in the winter and it is a ski in and ski out home. Most people go out for one or two runs, return to the home and then go out again. It's so convenient. It's also warm and inviting. The newly renovated kitchen is beautiful and you won't want for one piece of equipment for your cooking needs. The house is completely stocked with towels and linens. All you have to bring to this house is food, clothing and great family or friends. It's the best home I have rented and I have rented quite a few. BTW, the management team is second to none! We had a slight issue with the house and they took care of it in less than 2 hours.

    We always have a wonderful time. This year the hot tub wasn't working correctly. We had to have maintenance come out but it still never got to hot. The coffee pots: 1 never really worked and the other one took about 45 minutes to brew. And also the grills didn't have enough propone to cook with. We only used the grills one night and one ran out half way so couples had to wait to use the other one. The propane has been an issue before so I don't know if its because we are coming at the end of the season and it hasn't been checked for the summer or what. We really appreciate the owner renting his home every year. This group has been together for almost 40 years and this is one of the most enjoyable times of the year we have together. Thank you again and we will be back next year.

The electric griddle was also very helpful. Overall a very nice house for a big group.

    We have been coming to Timberline for about 20 years. This was the best house we've stayed in. It slept 20 people comfortably. The way the house is set up you can retreat to your bedroom and get away from all the noise that 20 people can bring. The kitchen was well equiped.Location on slope couldn't have been better. If I could improve one thing it would be the oven. If you put more than one casserole in, the oven had a hard time maintaining the temperature. Also the oven seamed small. Two ovens would have been fantastic.

    Tina C from Charlotte, NC recommends this vacation rental

    This house is awesome. There were 13 adults and 6 kids and never once did any of us feel cramped or the need to “escape” the confines of the house. In fact, the first full day we were there, none of us even left the house the entire day! Instead we spent it cooking, eating, playing music, watching movies, playing board games and sitting around laughing. With three floors and so many beds, plenty of bathrooms and a deck (which unfortunately was too cold for us to utilize this trip) there really is plenty of room for a large group. One minor suggestion would be to add a second oven. There are two refrigerators which is great, but when cooking for so many (and we made Thanksgiving food which means lots of oven time!) a second oven would definitely have been helpful. The views are pretty – there are neighbors close by though. We also went to Blackwater Falls State Park one day which was really pretty and a nice place for hiking around. We had a fire going in the fireplace the whole time which helped keep us toasty. We really appreciated having the house stocked with wood. The kids got a kick out of the pool table in the basement. The hot tub was broken when we got there but we called the repairman and he came the next day. Unfortunately it was the day we were leaving, so we didn’t get to test it out. Overall, two thumbs up! We've been renting houses as a group for 10 years and this is the best one yet! Thanks for a great place to stay.

    We had a group of 18 stay at Mountain Liar. Everyone had an awesome time, sitting on the deck, in the hot tub and playing games. Would recommend this house to anyone headed to Canaan. Making plans for next year. Thanks everyone for your help!

    Our family party of sixteen stayed at Mountain Lair in late July. We were very comfortable in this spacious and well-appointed house, and we could have accommodated more. The bedrooms were all comfortable, many with private baths. It was nice having two bedrooms on the main floor for the 87-year-old elders in our group. Our youngest family, with small children, took over the downstairs area, except for the pool table which many of us enjoyed! Outside, we took full advantage of the extensive decks and the hot tub. And, as we had arrived in separate cars from several different points of origin, it was nice to have so much parking space.

    The house is in a development so is not 100% private, but the lots are a good size. It is in a central location for day trips to the state parks and other local attractions. The most popular outings in our group were hiking in Dolly Sods and visiting the small towns of Thomas and Davis. Though winter is considered the high season in Canaan Valley, we were very happy to have visited in summer.

    We cooked some meals at the house and ate out for others. Linda Spence of the White Grass Café catered a fabulous meal (I recommend her wholeheartedly), finishing up the preparations at the house. There seemed to b plenty of counter and refrigerator space. Tip: in the closets are a folding table and chairs to supplement the main dining table for ten.

    I would happily stay in this house again with a large party.

    We had a wonderful time in Calnaan Valley. We were in the valley for the CAWV Summer camp. The house was great.
    CAWV is short for Challenged Athletes of West Virginia. The camp that was put on was for Wounded Warriors and their families. We were some of the volunteers helping with the event. Will call you guy next year for this house.

    Joe M from Clarksville, MD recommends this vacation rental

    Have been renting Mountain Lair over the past 4 years. Five families, 20 people in 10 bedrooms works well. The view of Winterset slope as it winds into the tunnel completes the ski-in/ski-out experience. Now if we could only move the house onto Twister or Dew Drop.

    Minor inconveniences would be the small kitchen, uneven oven and non-working blender. Also, the house could use better thermostats or zone heating as its too hot upstairs and too cold on the lower level. The billiard room now doubles as a mud room which is problematic. when the room is full of ski boots, jackets, gloves etc. However, these issues will not stop us from returning for a fifth year!!

    The house accommodated 20 people easily. The bedrooms were furnished very nicely and all rooms had flat screen TVs. It also has 8 bathrooms with 6 of them being in the Master Suites. My only comment was that the kitchen was not large enough compared to the size of the house, but it had everything we needed and then some. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone with a large group.

    our only complaint was no hottub and not being accessible to the house due to the slopes not being open. We hate to pay extra for prime location only to be faced with the same problems we would have if we stayed further away. dont know if you can put any more pressure on the resort to think about that. Overall still had a great weekend and we love the house.

The house accomodated 20 of us very comfortably. We loved the fact that there were bedrooms everywhere. Also very kid friendly. They had extra high chairs for all the little ones. Thank you. We truly enjoyed our trip!

    Colleen M from South Park, PA recommends this vacation rental

    The home was set up very nice. It accommodated 20 adults. The kitchen although counter space limited it had everything we needed to be able to eat meals in. Everything was very neat and clean except the windows. Without air conditioning, which we didn't realize when we reserved, needed opened and a few of the window openers were broke. The biggest thing I would suggest is for the home to have chairs on the bottom deck. It was a beautiful four days and we wanted to take advantage of the lower deck but there were no chairs and the grass was so tall that it made it hard to play yard games. Also the lower deck vase was packed with cigarette butts which should have been cleaned.

The one thing I'd like is to maybe have 1 other bedroom with more than 1 bed to accommodate more singles, but otherwise, it's great! And a really good value.

    a guest from Annandale, VA recommends this vacation rental

    My extended family of 30 spends one week together in a different location every summer - Mountain Lair (and Wind Landing) were perfect for us this year. Canaan Valley offers a great variety of things to do for all ages and interests. The folks at bestofcanaan were great (exception: the surly maintenance person). Mountain Lair bedrooms were comfortable, the common rooms were ample, the decks were awesome. Additional blinds to block the afternoon summer sun and ceiling fans in the kitchen and dining room would help to keep the house cooler; we shifted to the cooler lower level for games and pool in the afternoon, but those on kitchen detail would have appreciated the blinds and additional fans. One of the best things about the house is the horse trail behind it. Timberline Stables brings groups past the house a few times a day - Angie and her team at the stable are WONDERFUL - extremely knowledgable, careful and accommodating to our family whose ages range from 4 yrs old to "top of the scale" baby boomers. I highly recommend a trail ride with them - we rode twice! Also recommend taking a ride up to Thomas to the funky Purple Fiddle for a sandwich and some live music during your stay.

    House is great, comfortable, not pretentious. One shower appeared to have not been cleaned (soap shards in the stall) but not a big deal. BIGGEST suggestion is a stepping stool or something for the hot tub. It's tall and very difficult to get in & out of; one person in our group slipped & fell on the ice getting out, and hurt herself pretty badly.
