    Debi E from Bedford, PA recommends this vacation rental

    WE have been coming to Canaan West Va for about 20 years and have stayed at this house four times. This is by far one of the nicest homes we stay at. The property description is accurate regarding the location, layout and amenities. The property was clean and well maintained. The owner is so very nice and made our stay even better and the Donna at Best of Canaan was very nice and provided great customer service. I would recommend this property to a friend or relative matter of fact I already did We enjoyed hiking Dolly Sods, Blackwater Falls and so many of the other places. Also got some biking in. The Grandchildren loved Big Johns arcade and the state park watching the deer and just relaxing in the hot tub at the house. We enjoyed the new restaurant Wicked their food was really good and the service was super .

    Christien S from Midlothian, VA recommends this vacation rental

    After the kid puking in the car, and a tire going flat on the mountain up; we arrived at the realty company without further incident. The staff was wonderful and gave us brochures and recommendations of things to do around town. We didnt need to, but felt like we could call for anything. Regardless of how major or minor our question/problem would be. We arrived at the bears lair and were greeted by a family of deer. That set the scene for the rest of the vacation. We got away from the hustle and bustle of the city and escaped to this beautiful home. Two families, kids range from 10 to 10 months all had something to do and no one felt on top of each other. We really did not need to leave the community (minus a grocery run, and sight seeing). This house had the best lot in the community. A dry creek bed, a yard (with the best grass for kids to crawl), hot tub for the adults, and a game room away from the bedrooms, stars,a canoe down the road, etc. It was a much needed escape from society, a place to rejuvenate and spend time with the family. I know most people go for the skiing, but tje summertime is just as wonderful. The house is beautiful we loved the layout and all the large windows. Such a beautiful piece of property and home. We will definitely be back.

    a guest from Shepherdstown, WV recommends this vacation rental

    We rented bears lair for five nights for our annual Canaan Valley New Year's week trip . We have been renting homes in that area including timberline for the past 10 years. We can honestly say this is the best one we have rented that is dog friendly. We had two families total of eight people and the set up is perfect to allow privacy for everyone but also lots of very nice communal space for playing games sitting in front of the massive stone fireplace or playing pool . The hot tub was perfectly functioning and clean. The yard is beautiful. We had warmer than usual weather for January but the kids had a great time playing in the creek that passes through the property and building forts in the woods. There's amazing hiking and biking trails right out the door including around the two lakes or up into the mountains on timberline roads . We look forward to returning to Bears layer on a more typical snowy week since skiing is literally right through the guard gate less than a mile away. We also love the fact that Bear's Lair is very accessible and does not require going uphill on the mountain roads which can be pretty treacherous in timberline when it's really snowy . Another added bonus of this home is there are two huge Master bedrooms which is great if you have two families since neither of the adults have to compromise.

    a guest from Severn, MD recommends this vacation rental

    My group and I had an amazing time at Bear's Lair just a few weeks ago! There were a few kinks (which I noted in the guest book at the house) but generally, we loved it! The layout of the house is very interesting and works well for a large group. The kitchen table and chairs were cozy and we were able to all fit around it to enjoy and break bread together. The ambiance of the whole resort area is very serene during their off season, it was perfect for us! It was great to have Blackwater Falls and the Shop and Save were great to have so close to where we were staying. A few recommendations would include:

    - the owner should have notified me that there was no air conditioning. We only found out when we got there. I contacted the owner and she placed the blame on me of being confused, which was off-putting.
    - the outside fire pit is placed under a few low-hanging branches and I would suggest to have them cut back.
    - The back door was unlocked upon our arrival, and would not lock or unlock properly during our stay.

    Other than those few kinks we really enjoyed our stay! Thank you!

    Jennifer S from Newport News, vA recommends this vacation rental

    We had a wonderful vacation! The location was beautiful and we really enjoyed staying there! The house is great (could have been a little more clean- entry way smelled like wet dog/ dead bugs in light fixtures) but not a big deal. Our only real complaint was that some of the vents were loose and had screws loose and broken outlets, which was a real safety cocern for us since we had 4 children under the age of 2.

    Aidan D from Woodbridge, VA recommends this vacation rental

    This home is lovely and in a wonderful location. There are so many great things about staying here, you will not be disappointed. On the negative side, the house was not thoroughly cleaned. There was trash left in some places in and around the house, but we took care of that without much difficulty. The furniture was a little dated, which wasn't a huge deal but a slight negative. The plates and silverware were very mix and match, but I guess that's fine for vacation living. Our biggest concern was the 10am checkout time. We felt that was excessively early for checkout. We ended up booking an extra day so that we wouldn't have to leave first thing in the morning, but that certainly increased our cost beyond what we felt was a good value. On the positive side, this is a great house. Although dated, the furniture (including sofas and beds) was very comfortable. The towels seemed new and in great condition. The hot tub was fantastic. The pool table was great fun, and in a separate area. The TV was very good, so we could watch some sports during our get away. The fire pit was tons of fun, and there was plenty of fire wood available. The area is amazing, with plenty of hiking. We didn't use the canoes, but they were clearly easy to access. And the stars... just amazing to be out on a clear night. All in all, this is a great place, and I will give an overall four stars to my review. Hope this review helps you. Happy travels!
