Great Timberline Rental

by Jacqueline D.
Our stay was very nice and the town home was very nicely furnished, comfortable beds, and very clean.There are trails directly from the house out the back door for walking, hiking and bike riding. Plenty of room to spread out inside and beautiful deck with places to sit and enjoy nature. We enjoyed our stay and definitely would rent again and/or recommend this home for vacations!

We spent a lot of time in the house because of the weather. It turned out to be a very relaxing vacation! The house was so cozy. Having our dogs with us was a plus. Already planning to book again - hopefully we will get in some skiing next time.
Thank you for your review on Trail Runner's Retreat. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay even with the weather not cooperating. See you next year!

Another great rental...

Super clean, very comfortable in general - all around. We did not bring our dog with us this time but I can see how it would be a perfect rental for those with dogs. The hot tub location is excellent - provides lots of privacy. Easy, short drive to Timberline. Owner provided coffee and related accompaniments and that was a nice touch. Excellent wifi and smart tvs. Would definitely request to rent this unit again! Can't think of anything that was a problem, not at all.
Thank you for your review of Trail Runner's Retreat. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay. Looking forward to your return!

Trail Runner's Retreat at Timberline

by Kimberly R.
Our condo was exactly as described. Our family of four plus another family of 2 had a great skiing weekend. The proximity of the condo to the ski resort was a convenient 5 minutes.
Thank you for your review of Trail Runner's Retreat. We hope to have you back soon!

Great weekend

by Brad G.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Trail Runner's Retreat. The house was just as advertised...fully equipped kitchen, hot tub was relaxing after a long day of skiing, and a short drive to Timberline. After 12 inches of snow it was a nice surprise to have the driveway and road plowed early the next morning. We look forward to coming back.
Hi Brad, We are so glad you enjoyed your time skiing at Timberline Mountain and relaxing at Trail Runner's Retreat. Hope to have you back soon!

Great fall family getaway!

by Barbara K.
Trail Runner's Retreat was perfect for our family get-away. The rental goes above and beyond in the'dog-friendly' category. The hot tub was great after long days on the trails even on cold nights. The kitchen is well-equipped and the provided coffee was an unexpected but appreciated perk!
The home is in a great location to enjoy walks on the forest roads and the trails without getting in the car.Loved that it had a mud room and laundry.

This was our second trip to the area and we returned to some favorites... Douglas Falls, Black Water Falls, Bear Rocks Preserve, Moon Rocks and they did not disappoint. We also hiked to view Lion's Head in Dolly Sods, Red Runs Falls, Kennedy Falls, and visited Bald Knob, Seneca Rocks and more.

We enjoyed meals from Riverfront Wood-Fired Pizza, Canaan BBQ, and especially Sirianni's and enjoyed a couple of pints at Stumptown Ales and Mountain State Brewing as well as pastries from Tip Top.

If we return to the area in the future, we would hope to book Trail Runner's Retreat again!

Thank you for your special review of Trail Runner's Retreat. Your trip sounds like it was full of good ole' Tucker County enjoyment! Hope to have you back soon!

Fantastic getaway

by Troy & Tanya B.
We love visiting the Canaan Valley area and love the rentals at Woods End. This rental is no exception! Upon arrival, we found a hot tub very low on water. I called our rental agency and within minutes a maintenance person arrived to remedy the situation. I can’t think of any negatives for this home, but trying to always give helpful feedback the two things that could be improved on would be the water pressure and perhaps handicap accessibility. We loved the home and will book with you again!
Thanks Tanya! Hope to have you back soon!

Wonderful home away from home

by Tiffany O.
The Trail Runner's Retreat was the most well stocked cabin we've ever rented.... extra towels, blankets, books, games, DVD, kitchen essentials, access to basic cleaning supplies....all wonderful little extras that were much appreciated! The beds and furniture were comfy and the hot tub is amazing! Easy access from the cabin to trails and local attractions was great! Our dog loved all the room in the cabin and the nearby trails for his walks! Thank you so much for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!
Thank you for your review on Trailer Runner's Retreat. We love to hear you and your dog loved the area. We hope you will come back again!

As Advertised

by Daniel B.
A very nice place to stay if you are going to Canaan mountain. Would recommend. the only thing that wasn't perfect was the hot tub . It was only half filled when we got there. they came out the next day and took care of it so no worries.
Hi Daniel, Thank you for your review. We are so glad you had a great time. We have been hard at work to repair the slow leak in the hot tub and we apologize for any inconvenience you had with it. We look forward to your return!

A Midsummer Visit to The Canaan Valley

by Donald T.
We spent four days/nights at Trail Runners Retreat and it was a great experience. The house was exceptionally well equipped and exceptionally clean. All the necessities were provided for the first few days and the coffee was an unexpected delight. It is being very well cared for and everything worked. Had to seek help with the internet and the PM company was quick to respond and assist. The air conditioning during the 85 degree days was wonderful.
Trail Runner's Retreat is a delight! We hope to see you again here at Best of Canaan!

Excellent Once Agsin

by Jeffrey M.
We really enjoy getting away in Canasn Valley. And after trying several other companies, with very mixed experiences, we have been using Best of Canasn for several years. Friendly, helpful, and their properties are well-managed. Just the Best...

Monger family reunion in West Virginia

Great Location for hiking in Dolly Sods. Weigh 2 Kool is spacious and though not fancy, easy to relax in with our family of 6. The kitchen is great and the number of bathrooms really works for a vacation away!
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!

Family Fun in the Mountains

Nice place with a great location. Well equipped to entertain with games galore. My only complaint would be the beds are terrible uncomfortable. Sleeping was a challenge :-(the

Canaan weekend getaway

Canaan is a great place to visit - any season, any weather. Whether you enjoy outdoor adventures or just getting away from real life for a few days, you will find it at Canaan. Weigh 2 Cool is a great place to stay - centrally located in the valley, near hiking, biking, wilderness areas, both ski areas. Shopping and local restaurants are a short drive away. The unit is very well outfitted, is clean, has comfortable beds and seating, and has plenty of room to relax for a few days. The online description and pictures are very representative of what is in the unit. The Best of Canaan staff were very helpful and pleasant and I highly recommend them. Overall our time at Weigh 2 Cool was a great rental experience from start to finish.
