Lazy S

by Barry G.
Started out good but microwave did not run for more than 4 seconds. Called about it but they did not bring out a loaner microwave. Also the propane ran out of the grill.
Hi Barry, Our maintenance log states that a loaner microwave was dropped off at the house the same day you called. We are sorry if you were not there to witness this but it would have been placed somewhere in the kitchen for you to see it. We are sorry for any confusion. As for the propane tank, if anyone happens to run out of propane in the future just give us a call and we will replace it. Thank you.

Perfect Getaway in the Mountains

by Crystal G.
I love the Canaan area and frequent rentals in the Timberline gated community area. It makes it very convenient for lake fun and private access to Dolly Sods wilderness. This house was very nice and convenient for lake access. It was private minus traffic coming down the street to the lake/houses back in the area. The place itself was super open, roomy and perfect for a pet to come along. Our dog loved the gated yard! Definitely would go back. The house was beautiful, convenient, reasonable priced and great for a dog.
Thank you for your review. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay at Lazy S and hope to have you back soon!

Awesome Father's Day Weekend

by Brian E.
Well appointed, clean house, prime location near Sandrun Lake, and the nature preserve trail head, not to mention Timberline for skiing this winter. Definitely going back.
Thank you for your review of Lazy S!

Top Notch Comfortable Quiet Cabin

We’re so glad we chose to stay at Lazy S and we’d choose this cabin again in a heartbeat. The ambiance, coziness, spacious rooms, and comfort are simply the best one could find. The house is well equipped and the linens are all the highest quality.

A beautiful Thanksgiving weekend in Canaan Valley

by Denise O.
The Lazy S is an outstanding property - much nicer than its pictures. It is fully equipped and has a large comfortable master. The TV service includes Roku channels like Netflix which was a nice surprise. The fenced yard was great for our dog; she loved romping in the snow. This was the perfect location for our Thanksgiving getaway.
Hi Denise, We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay at Lazy S for Thanksgiving. We appreciate your feedback and hope to have you back next year!

Wonderful stay that exceeded expectations!

by Sabrina H.
Our family of 4 (2 couples) and 2 dogs stayed for a week Sept-Oct 4th. We were very pleased with the condition of the property, cleanliness and location to Sand Run Lake. We were pleasantly surprised by the propane fire pit on the deck and extremely pleased with the comfort of the beds (both master and Queen). The back deck had a dog gate available for enclosing the space which was another wonderful surprise as the dogs were able to enjoy evenings on the deck with us without tie outs! The fenced yard was much appreciated as well and the cute dog sculpture is a welcome sight for dog lovers :). A short walk to the lake AND trails will make this a repeat stay for sure. Thanks to the owners for sharing their lovely home for a much needed vacation!
Thank you for your review on Lazy S. Love to hear you and the dogs were able to enjoy your stay. We hope you will return!

Great house, perfect location

Clean, Quiet & Comfortable

by Zoe B.
We spent a week at Lazy S and enjoyed our stay! We loved walking the dog to the pond at the end of the road and also having the fenced yard. There is also a long trail at the corner of Lakeview & Sunfish. The master bed was very comfortable. Water pressure was good. Plenty of towels. Knives weren't sharp, but otherwise the kitchen was well stocked. I drank the water all week (well) and it was pretty good. We called the property manager when we discovered the grill needed attention and they were very helpful, came out that same day. The house is about 5 miles off the main highway and very private. Our favorite activities were Still Hollow Spirits, Blackwater Falls, dining at Farm Up Table, and music at The Purple Fiddle.
Thank you for your review of Lazy S. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and all the fun local spots! We hope to see you again soon!

Lazy S-perfect for a stay in Canaan Valley

by Anne D.
Lazy S is in a quiet secluded location within an easy walk to the wildlife refuge trails. The house has an open living/dining area with skylights so it feels spacious, yet there is privacy for the bedrooms at opposite ends of the house. The kitchen and the rest of the house are well stocked with everything you would need. The management company, Best of Canaan, keeps the property very well maintained and their staff is friendly and helpful. This is a wonderful area if you like hiking and the outdoors, also close to Dolly Sods and state parks.
Thank you for your review at Lazy S. We hope you come back and see us again!

A great place to unwind

by Polly M.
I selected this house because it was pet friendly and had a fenced yard. This house has so much more to offer. The floorplan is great. The house is appointed nicely, the bed very comfortable. I loved reading while sitting in the rocking chair on the front porch. Lots of wildlife to see. The realty company was very helpful during my stay. I'm looking forward to my next visit.
Thank you for your review on Lazy S. Nothing like a good book in a rocking chair! We hope you come back to relax again!

Great Place

by Dona L.
We had a wonderful time hiking and enjoying the beautiful area. The Lazy S is perfect. It is comfortable, very clean, in a great secluded location, and has everything you need. It would be helpful to have some information in the house to know what all is available in the area. We figured out a lot of things, but didn't discover the lake at the end of the road until the day we left. Be sure to check it out! So peaceful and serene.
Hi Dona, Thank you for your review of Lazy S. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon!

This is a great house in a great location. It is well-kept and clean. Really enjoyed being able to walk out of the house and on to the wildlife refuge.
Thank you so much for the great review for Lazy S and Best of Canaan. We look forward to working with you again soon.

Pleasant trip with the family

We had a wonderful time during our stay- a snow day made it all that much more special . Location is wonderful and quaint- only recommendation would be to upgrade some of the kitchen appliances that were not in full working condition. We would return for sure.
Thank you for your review Charles. I am sure the owners will be replacing those appliances soon. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and we can't wait to have you back!

Great place to ring in the new year!

by Brody B.
Lazy S was the perfect place to ring in the new year! Private location yet within walking distance to the lake. Highlight of our stay was enjoying the beautiful stone fireplace with our dogs! Home is clearly well maintained. Great place for some R&R! We will 100% be back!!
Sounds like a wonderful time! Lazy S is a great rental and we are so glad you enjoyed it. We can't wait to have you back! Thank you for choosing Best of Canaan!

Relaxing Getaway

During COVID, we were looking for a clean, safe place to get away to. The Lazy S home was perfect. The layout was great for my husband and I and our adult daughter. And of course, our dog. The home was clean, the beds were very comfortable and it was so quiet. There are many great hikes in the area. Overall, a great home and area.

Fall Family Trip

by Stephanie T.
Very clean and well maintained. We had everything we needed for our stay. Plenty of room for my husband, 3 adults children, a dog, and me. The master bed was beyond comfortable. Nice, quiet location that is a short walk to the lake.
Thank you for the kind words. Lazy S is a great rental and we are so glad you enjoyed it. Please come back and see us again!

Amazing place!

by Sharon A.
Lazy S is a beautiful home. The owners have made it a place where I would love to live! Paintings on the walls, beautiful crockery displayed in the rooms, and comfy furniture. This home is beautifully maintained and the layout is great! Although you cannot see the lake from the house, it is only a short walk to it. Two times we went down to the lake before it was dark, and saw deer grazing, running and playing, and ducks at the pond. The tree colors were beautiful, what a wonderful place to view God's creation. The only main problem we had was the oven was not working, but after I phoned Best of Canaan office, someone came and repaired it. They were very helpful. Thank you for letting us have the opportunity to live in you house for awhile. Any chance there can be a hot tub added? My husbands wish list item! Hope to visit again soon! My daughter said it was the nicest place we've stayed at. (We've visited Canaan at least once a year for quite awhile!) Bragging to my relatives about this beautiful place! Note: finding an eat-in restaurant can be a problem because of Covid-19 . But its still possible to find some.
Sharon, thank you for your review! We love Lazy S and its location too. I am not sure if there will ever be a hot tub added but it is a request we can make. We hope to have you back very soon!

Great getaway

by Danny C.
The house was a nice getaway after cancelling our big vacation plans.

The house was beautiful and had plenty of space for my family of 6 and our dogs.

We had a water pressure issue because of a clogged filter but it was resolved quickly.

We highly recommend and will visit again!
Thank you for the great review of Lazy S. We can't wait to have you and your family back again!

Lazy S

The house is fantastic- the location, general condition, convenience. My only negative comment is the cleaning prior to our arrival. The kitchen table was sticky, the floor was dirty, and the doormats were still up on the chairs. Otherwise it was fantastic. I would highly recommend it.
We are so sorry some things were missed! A quick phone call to us and it would have been made right. We hope you will come back to see us again.
July 29, 2020 - Escapia

Updated decor

Really enjoyed the new fence in the front for the dogs. Updated decor was nice. New bed was really comfortable. Little disappointed with no hot tub. Great location, like being in a gated community. Kitchen was well supplied. Screened in sunroom was great for meals and enjoying nature. No a/c but fans were great, never too hot. Grill needs replaced, won’t heat enough to cook on. Lock to sunroom from house was very difficult to operate, needs maintenance. Third year staying at Lazy S, would stay again.
So glad you loved all the new updates to Lazy S! Can't wait to have you back for another year at Best of Canaan!

'THE LAZY SHABBY"

by Connie K.
Management were very professional and helpful. However Lazy Z's living room furniture was a disgrace. Old, wore out, brought in chairs from porch to sit on. Mattress and pillows need to be replaced. Floors need to be cleaner.
June 20, 2019 - Escapia

LazyS

Peaceful location. The cabin is well designed and accommodates a family very well. The furniture is need of an update. We paid extra to have a rental with a hot tub and was very disappointed. The tub and water were not clean and the jets did not operate properly. I would rent the facility again, however, I would not pay the extra for the hot-tub, unless guaranteed to be clean and functioning. In hind-site, I should have requested a refund for that portion of our stay.
Great News! Lazy S now has all new furniture and we do apologize for the hot tub. Next time please let us know about any problems you may have. We always make it our goal to fix any issues our guests might have during their stay. We do appreciate you planning your Canaan Valley lodging with Best of Canaan. Please come back and see us!

Our stay in Canaan

by Terry H.
Working with Best of Canaan is always of very good experience. The 'Lazy S' is not updated. The furniture is old and uncomfortable, the tiles in the kitchen are cracked. The overall atmosphere is just tired looking. I will work with 'Best of Canaan' again but am not likely to come back to this property.

Nice house

by Amy O.
Comfy set up all around in Lazy S. The layout of the house is great. We enjoyed the hot tub and fireplace and were grateful our pup could join us. Sheets and towels lovely.

We had paper towels, TP, and found some spices in the cabinet (thank you!).

I do wish the kitchen outfitting was refreshed as we cooked in a lot (knives dull, too few bowls, glass casserole dishes needed).

We did have one fantastic dinner out at Whitegrass;highly recommend!

While Canaan was short on snow during our visit, we were glad we had 4-wheel drive to get to the house as it’s very far back in (tho only about 20 minutes to the ski area or Davis). The area is beautiful with great walking trails and lakes just mi Utes away from the house.

Thanks for sharing your home.
We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay here in the beautiful WV mountains. Thank you for planning your Canaan Valley lodging with Best of Canaan. Please come back and see us!

Very peaceful and pet friendly

by Shane S.
Loved this rental. It was the perfect location. Very pet friendly. Best of Canaan were wonderful to work with. They went out of their way helping us during Hurricane Florence. Gave us additional days than our original dates because we couldn't make it back home due to the flooding. Highly recommend this rental and Best of Canaan. Thank you, Miss Donna!!
My pleasure. I hope you returned home to little or no damage from Feisty Florence! Come see us again.

Christmas In the Mountains

by Anthony S.
Just a few FYIs - we had a dead animal in the toilet when we arrived.
The wood was soooooo wet it was very difficult to get it to burn.
We had to buy batteries for the TV remotes we could find (some remotes are missing) and the TVs are way outdated.
BUT we did have a wonderful time.
Thanks

Thanksgiving in WV

by Allan W.
Everything was great. The Best of Canaan managers are warm, friendly and helpful. The house was well prepared for our stay. We had read reviews that said that it could do with an update - painting and furniture. However, we enjoyed our time in the cabin. Roaring fire, comfy sofa and chair. Our thoughts upon leaving - don't sweat the small stuff. Great venue for our family Thanksgiving.

Nightmare

by Paul B.
Beautiful area but this home was definitely dated and had serious problems. Take water pipes were old and all water had a strong metallic taste, the shower curtains were old and moldy. one of two spotlights on the back porch was out and the other faced the wrong way so very dark. Second night there I stepped out of the Luke warm hot tub and my foot went through the rotting steps twisting my knee and ankle which I still feel today. Management said the steps were fairly new but would be up to fix it immediately...8 hours later the maintenance people came and showed me how rotten all the steps were (have pictures). No apology or attempt to make things right. Left a day early because snow was coming and leg hurt too much to ski. Never again here!
November 30, 2016 - Escapia

Great stay

Very spacious and clean. Everything was in working order. The worst I could say is that a broom would be useful as the sweeper is awkward. One level was great. Would return and recommend to others.

Relaxing stay at the Lazy S

Mixed Review

by Lynn L.
While the location was great, the accommodation was a little disappointing.
The house really needed some maintenance, walls were dirty, way too many spider webs in windows, skylights, and there was black mold in both showers, and there was water marks on many of the walls.
The hot tub stairs were totally dangerous!
The couch and love seat in living room were very uncomfortable and need to be replaced.
October 17, 2016 - Escapia

Nice place

Stayed here for 5 days no real issues at all very nice Only thing would be that it needs some TLC it looks like it's been not painted in years but if you overlook that everything else is quite nice the hot tub could also receive some tlc

Labor Day 2016

by Fred K.
average. great location. otherwise: ancient silverware, pots, glasses, plates; sleeps 6 but for a 3 day rental 1 paper towels, 2 dishwasher tablets, 2 trash bags, 1 key, towels worn from 20 years of usage. For the price would have thought a little better provisions.

Summer - August 2016

by Daniel W.
We are a family of 4, and spent a week here in August 2016. The house is a bit worn, but no worse for the wear. It is nestled in the woods at the north end of the Timberline Resort community. It borders the National Wildlife Refuge, and there is a trail hear nearby that takes you into the Refuge. The house is also close to Sand Lake, and there's a nice trail that goes around the lake. Horse stables are off the main road and offer trail rides up into the Dolly Sods wilderness area. It is a magnificent summertime setting. The house is clearly a year-round rental, as the kitchen supplies were very limited, as well as a odd mix of plastic and ceramic dishes. i.e., no foil or wrap, no sponges, and a short supply of dishwasher soap and trash bags. The best part of the house was the hot tub on the back deck!

Absolutely Wonderful!!!

Perfect. Absolutely wonderful family vacation. The staff was very helpful, giving ideas on places to go, as well as directions/maps. The property was amazing with great view, and good location for exploring the area. My family and I will be coming back for years to come.

WOW

by Dana H.
The pictures do not do it justice. When we arrived, the house seemed small, but it was late at night, but we were happy to be there. We walked in and the floor plan is open and inviting. The décor is comfy and homey, but not in a commercial way. The kitchen was well stocked with utensil, dishes and cookware. The peace and quiet is unlike anything you get in the city. It is truly a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of life. The kids had a great time seeing the wildlife and a clear view of the stars. The entire time from reserving to handing in the keys was painless and done with a smile. We will be coming back.
October 15, 2015 - Escapia

Disappointing rental

The property is in need of some updates...kitchen is lacking. we could not find a slow cooker. Cookie sheets,frying pans in very poor condition. we actually went to store to buy foil pans to do some of our cooking. No blind in one bathroom window. Toilets did not flush well. Also, there really is not adequate seating in living room. we had 6 adults. there is a couch and chair. otherwise, it's hard wooden seats. for the same price, I am sure we could find a more cared for rental.

We had a marvelous time- All of my sons currently live in Charlotte, NC and we live in Michigan- Every year i pic an unknown spot for us all to meet in January. we celebrate the holidays we missed together and winter birthdays. The house was perfect- we enjoyed the hot tub and the fireplace too! Weather was cold and snowy!! 🙂
Some of the previous reviews were negative in regards to the house needing painting- etc. Well, when people come stay at your place and do not respect the property- you will have that- We loved the space, decor and items provided. Thanks for everything!

Wonders of Winter

We were amazed at the wonders of winter during our stay. We watched the clouds dump snow and crystals on the tops of the mountains while the rest of the fields and everything stayed dry. What a spectacular view. The house was a great place to land after a busy day.

by Craig S.
We had a great experience and really enjoyed or stay. Great location, plenty of privacy. Loved barbecuing on the deck and using the hot tub. The house has lots of space and a well-stocked kitchen. Like other reviews, there are a few things that need to be done with little things like Paint and some small repairs, but these did not affect our stay. We will be back!

Lazy S Visit

by Mike B.
House was very nice with the exception of a few issues: Could definitely use a coat of paint, and rugs replaced. Furniture in the livingroom could use cleaning. Television in the livingroom has an annoyoing vertical line on the picture.Shower heads could be replaced. Layout of house was very nice and location was ideal.

Fun Ski Weekend

The house was exactly as described. Adorable and cozy cabin. It was dog friendly so while spotlessly clean, it was a bit worn in some areas. The location was awesome. The kitchen was very well appointed. I brought a bunch of my own tools but didn't need to. The rental company was except5ional-super responsive and helpful. Would recommend to a friend.

Wonderful girls getaway!

We wanted a quick girls weekend to unwind from the Christmas rush! This property fit perfectly! It was in a wonderful private location with hiking right outside our door. The property was spotless and ready when we arrived prior to check-in. The house did have a humorous shortage of light bulbs and batteries for the remote controls (which also were held together with tape!) but it didn't really make a difference to us. The fireplace was gorgeous and there was ample wood provided. We are already planning next years getaway, and are planning to stay an extra night!

Lazy S

by Grace C.
Just what we wanted, nice quiet secluded winter retreat
December 6, 2013 - Escapia

A quiet gettaway in the woods of West Virginia.

We loved getting together with our daughter and son in law, but the house was disappointing. The layout and space is good and with some paint, cleanup and furniture it would be a lovely retreat. The living room furniture is worn out and not comfortable. The twin bed mattresses and box springs made so much noise when I sat down on them or rolled over that it could be heard through the wall in the other bedroom. I ended up putting a mattress on the floor and that put an end to the noise. Dishes and cookware were adequate.

We didn't try the cable tv until the 2nd day only to find out that it was not working. The cable had been damaged when the road was graded so with no one staying there is it wasn't detected. It did get fixed fairly late in the evening that we reported it. It is a quiet and peaceful place.

The location makes a very *meh* rental the bomb.

by Richard H.
Excellent location: Very secluded. Very quiet. Walk from your front door to the 500th Wildlife Refuge trails. Access the Dolly Sods without leaving the gated community! Super close to ski areas and state parks. Short drives to awesome national forests & wilderness. Wildlife all over the place.

House: Great bones. Once a really nice, custom home. Very clean - including the hot tub. Great fireplace (nice firewood.) Nice screened in back porch. Unfortunately: Kind of beat-up on the inside. Could us a lot of TLC. Mildew and musty closets. My wife couldn't be in the Master BR due to the musty smell. 2dn shower has an annoying high-pitched whine.

House Furnishings: Just sad. Worn out towels, linens, couch / chair, cookware (and not great cookware at that - some of it busted.) Minimal supplies (no dish cloths or green pads, you get to run the dishwasher 4x/wk with what is supplied, bring your own laundry stuff. Firm, comfortable mattresses.

Marginal cell reception and very slow internet service. True cable TV (not satellite) no DVR. A single old wired house phone.

Exterminator came to spray during our stay (including front porch - rocking chairs, and back deck - hot tub. No notice, just started walking around the house spraying. Definitely not cool.

Like I said, the location makes the place and in spite of all the rest, we loved it.

Review of Lazy S

by Rev. Susan W.
Overall the house worked out well for my family. The queen beds were very hard, and it would be nice to have one extra comfortable chair in the living room. There are a few small maintenance issues, but the house was clean, and it was a great place for us.

Timberline Lazy S

by Randy E.
Overall I was pleased with the property. The property was in a private location and was very quiet. Some items that need addressed in the future include: the hot tub needs fixed (a jet was loose and never worked and the water level was to low at first), the rear gutter was broken at the hot tub so the rain we did have splashed down on the deck, the DVD player had no remote and the TV remote had no batteries. However, when we mentioned the chemical level in the hot tub and a broken toilet handle the rental staff worked to resolve these issues.

We will return in the future.

Review

by Holly H.
We really liked the house, but the walls could use a coat of paint and they have a mouse problem. We heard mice in our wall all night long. Its a house in the woods so we understand, but it should probably be taken care of. Came with plenty of towels, nice location, and clean.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE

by Jessica P.
This is one of THE BEST get-a-ways my family an I have ever went on. This mountain region itself is absolutely beautiful. The Lazy S is PERFECT. The cabin is so clean, peaceful, cozy, and has the perfect layout. When you step out onto the deck all you hear are the sounds of nature. Donna was wonderful. She answered every question i had prior to our visit, and also while on our visit. The staff was so friendly and on the ball which made our visit that much better. We can't wait to go back. I will not be searching for a different location to stay because the Lazy S is just perfect. We LOVE it. I actually shed a tear when it was time to leave... Thank you for the first of many many visits to come 🙂

Great location, but had problems

by Michael W.
Our stay was one of many in Canaan. Our 2nd in Old Timberline, our first with The Best Of Canaan. I have to say we were all disappointed because the hot tub didn't work; the toilet in the master bedroom was broken; the garbage from previous renters was still there; the lack of paper products and trash bags; the kitchen sink leaked; the water pressure was horrible. The area was wonderful and the house was big enough to fit all of us. Overall the stay was not as enjoyable as others, and the property management gave us a hard time when we asked for paper towels, garbage bags, and toilet paper since only a half roll of paper products was there, and one garbage bag. They did refund us for not using the hot tub. We will probably not be staying here again; although we will stay with Old Timberline.

Our stay at the Lazy S

by Karen G.
The Lazy S is a beautiful home in Old Timberline. The setting is very peaceful and has a great get-away-from-it-all feel. It also backs up to the Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge so there are walking/biking trails just a stone's throw away. The furniture in the house is comfortable and clean. Nice decor. The kitchen is well equipped. The hot tub worked well and we used it once. TV worked fine and had a good picture. There were a few mice - not a surprise in this setting. We trapped them easily. There was a problem with the water during our stay: several times the water just stopped. In all cases, it always came back anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours later but it was hard to predict when it would happen. We would definitely stay there again, assuming the water issue is fixed.

We had a very good time with this rental & our vacation in Canaan

by Ed W.
Best of Canaan experience was very enjoyable. We had a few property issues but the service from BOC was excellent. Staff was very friendly, efficient and on top of everything(even after hours). If the issues like the front door sticking badly, the refrigerator going out, the water softener recycling during dinner time & showers it would have been a perfect stay. The owner should also put a fresh coat of paint on all walls. Although the place was clean it did not feel clean due to the dirty walls.

Family Reunion

by Carolyn B.
Our only real problem were mice. Thank goodness we were provided with traps. This should have been handled before we arrived.We were greeted by 2 in traps!!The porches could have a good sweeping!We did appreciate the prompt attention from maintance when we called. We seemed a long way from the rest of our family, except for 1, we'll try to locate better the next time. This was our 5th time in Timberline, We love the place.
