The Great Escape

Wonderful location and lovely accommodations truly provide The Great Escape.

5 Bedrooms 4 Bathrooms Sleeps. 14 Canaan Valley
Queen: 2 Twin: 9 Full: 3

I recently saw someone wearing a t-shirt that said "I would rather be in the mountains". No kidding I thought. The mountains are where the stars are brighter, the air is cleaner and the quiet is even quieter. Does that tempt you to make "The Great Escape"? This lovely custom built home is equipped for family fun in every season. Bikers, hikers, boaters, bakers and even couch potatoes will love the location in every season. Guests will enjoy WIFI, multiple TV’s, two gas fireplaces and an outdoor hot tub. The open floor plan makes cooking, dining, visiting and TV watching all social events. Teens and tweens can escape to the loft or downstairs family room for some “parentless” peace and quiet. Go ahead and make The Great Escape to the mountains! Reserve online or call and let a member of our staff take care of the details for you.

Great weekend with family and friends skiing in Timberline

by Jacob M.
House was clean and everything in good working order. The floorpan works well for larger groups with plenty of sleeping space for kids in basement and loft. It is a short drive to the ski lodge, or walkable if parking is an issue.

Lots of beds

by Diane M.
This was our 3rd year in this rental. We love all the extra room for our big family ski trip. The location is within walking distance to the lodge. We can also access the slips from here.
The house is showing its age and can use some repairs.

Good Stay at Great Escape

by Jeff N.
The location is easy to access existing trails and numerous venues in CV. It is a large accommodating cabin with and plenty of indoor and outdoor gathering spaces. There were 12 individual beds and none were bunk beds. Several of the mattresses may need to be replaced as well as some of the kitchen cookware but didn't impact our enjoying the property.
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at The Great Escape. We are thrilled you enjoyed your time there. Hope to have you back soon!

The Great Escape

by Fred P.
Very nice, spacious, and convenient home.
Very often parking is a problem for over 3 vehicles, but this home could park 5 vehicles without a problem. hot tub was nice, and outside grill was piped directly to gas. Hot water heater was behind locked door, but seemed to be on demand, so hot water was endless.
We have been coming to this area for family reunions for many years, and this was one of the best places we have stayed. Thank you very much for sharing your home!
Thanks for the great review! We would love to have you back to the Great Escape anytime!

Fantastic house for family get away

We rented this house for a long weekend of skiing. It's very convenient to the slopes and the ski room in the basement worked out great to store everything. We had 3 families here with kids and there was plenty of space to spread out. The only negative was the tv in the was missing the extension cord, so it didn't work. We will look at booking this house in the future.
Thank you for your review on The Great Escape. Next time you have an issue like a missing extension cord, please call us and we can fix that right away. Hope you see you next year.

Snowless Week

by Diane M.
Wonderful week but not much skiing due to the weather. We did enjoy the local sights including a visit to a meadery, winery,FairFax Stone, Black Water Falls, and some downtown shopping.
Thank you for your review on The Great Escape! Sorry for the unseasonable weather that you endured but happy to hear you were able to make some time for sight seeing!

Friends ski-cation

by Delaine B.
The home was great of our group! Four families had plenty of space to relax together and separately. The kitchen was a good size and had many tools, spices, coffee and everyday items that helped us make our meals. Having 4 full bathrooms was great too! The hot tub was used and enjoyed by the adults. The location was great for our skiers/boarders! The downstairs exterior door and mud room was perfect to contain the wet boots and clothes instead of tracking it all in upstairs. Our group hopes to stay there again in the future.
Thank you for your review! We are thrilled you had a great time!

Beautiful home in a great location.
Very sad to see that maintenance of this place is somewhat neglected. Moldy smell in the basement and there was an ant problem.

Good family getaway for skiing

Spacious house with ample sleeping space. 200 ft. walk to Winterset slope made it easy to stop by the house for lunch while skiing. Hot tub was in perfect working order. Basement entry room on the rear of the house was perfect for entry/exit to/from skiing. The only improvement would be to renew some of the mattresses. Some are new and in good condition while others are older and saggy. Overall the house was a good choice.
Hi Cory, Thanks for the great review of The Great Escape. We hope to have you back soon!

Truly a Great Escape

The house was clean and very spacious. The couches were comfortable, and the kitchen had everything necessary to make dinner. There were no issues during my stay. The location is great for exploring the local area, like Dolly Sods and Spruce Knob. The area itself is quiet and secluded on the corner. I would definitely recommend this house for a nice summer getaway.
Thank you for taking the time to review The Great Escape. We hope you were able to escape from reality for a little bit and enjoy your vacation. Please come back and see us again!

Resetting with Gaia

The Great Escape was a beautiful house, it may not look as such from outside but once you get in is enchanting. The big glass windows allow the light to shine in and one can contemplate nature from the comfort of their reclanible chairs. At night you can see the starts and moon through your window giving you the sensation that you are outside.
The only thing I found unpleasant was the noise of some neighbors. Quiet time is at 11, however there were people that did not respect this rule and if you are outside you can hear their noises and no one came to implement this rule. The noise takes away from the natural sounds surrounding you while you having a fire outside. Once inside I did not hear the noises.
Thank you for your wonderful review of the Great Escape. It truly is that. Please come back and see us here at Best of Canaan!

Nice, Spacious House

After having two previous reservations cancel, I was pleased to find this home. It was big enough for our group of 13, with plenty of bedrooms. We were able to visit Blackwater Falls, Seneca Rocks, Dolly Sods, Spruce Knob, and several other places, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Thank you for a great weekend!
So glad you had a great weekend in the beautiful Canaan Valley. The Great Escape is just that, a great escape! Please come back and see us again here at Best of Canaan.

Golf Trip

by John H.
Noticed a few minor damages (cosmetic) but otherwise easily accommodated the crew. Didn't spend much time there as we played golf all day long most days. would definitely recommend for a group of golfers of 10 or less.
So glad you enjoyed your golf trip in the beautiful Canaan Valley! Please come back and see us here at Best of Canaan!

We had a great escape

The house was pleasantly spacious. We had three families of four, and everybody had a comfortable place to sleep.
The house had everything we needed.
The hot tub had a few challenges, but that seems to common theme when renting ski houses.
We were definitely choose to stay here again.
So glad you would choose to stay at the Great Escape again! We hope you do and we can't wait to see you here again at Best of Canaan!

Thanksgiving at the Great Escape

The house was amazing!! The small kitchen appliances need to be replaced. There were several appliances that did not work, which made cooking very inconvenient. There was not enough garbage bags, laundry soap or dish soap.
So glad you loved the house! We are working on getting the appliances in tip top shape and so sorry about the lack of a few things. We hope you will come back and stay with us! Next time just give us a call and we would be happy to replace any items you need and work on anything that needs fixed during your stay!

Easter weekend

by Kara G.
The house is comfortable and well equipped. We liked the location and that all the bathrooms had walk in showers. My elderly parents were with us and the layout of the house worked for us. The front steps need a handrail for easy access Beds really are squeaky but comfortable. We stayed 6 days and had a great time!

ThanksGiving Weekend

by Norman H.
Beautiful House and we had a wonderful stay
The House badly needs some minor maintenance though as fireplaces (2) did not work, lightbulbs missing, downstairs freezing, no signage outside so very hard to find BUT a lovely lovely house and we would stay there again.
Just a note to let you know that our maintenance department replaced a number of light bulbs in the they are available to do that 7 days a week. They also report that both of the fireplaces are in working order. We apologize if the downstairs rooms seemed cold but again, a maintenance person is only a phone call away. Thanks for sharing your concerns.

Awesome retreat!

This was the perfect place for our small family reunion! It was clean and comfortable, and there was lots of space to spread out. The open concept downstairs made eating and hanging out together easy and the hot-tub and porch were wonderful. We enjoyed the proximity to downtown Davis for stores/entertainment and there were lots of fun outdoors things to do!

Great Stay!!!!

by Kimberly A.
We stayed for a week at this lovely house! My family met here from many different areas and it was the best time! The house layout was perfect!! Numerous sleeping areas were great! Kitchen was well stocked! The only issues were a few maintenance issues but they didn’t impact our stay! Canaan Valley is a beautiful, serene place that I wish everyone would discover and enjoy!

Great Thanksgiving with friends

by Daniel S.
The cabin overall was satisfactory, great location, plenty of room for our group of 12 (8 adults and 4 children). It is bigger than it looks from the outside. It has everything you might need, grill, jacuzzi (we did not use), kitchen well equipped, etc. The check in/ check out, no problem, reservation process was pretty straightforward. Now a few things were I think the management can improve. The furniture seems like it needs an upgrade. One chair was broken, same for the railing on one of the bunk beds. The beds were uncomfortable, squeaky. Bring your own pillows (I never do and regretted it this time). Bathrooms have only a couple of soap bars, so bring toiletries (which is fine, but good to know by others). The master bedroom had a funky smell that persisted for the entire time. We thought it might have been from drains in the bathroom, but even after running the water, no change. Also the bedding in the master bedroom did not look clean. Luckily I found some clean ones in the basement. The master bedroom faces sun so you better be a morning person, cause sun it on you through the high windows. Kitchen had everything, but we could not find a cutting board anywhere. That would be good to have, since we prepared all our meals. Couches, TV, all good. It would be good to have a larger dining table considering this cabin can host so many people. One other thing - there was nongarbage bin outside, so we had to keep trash bags on the deck and bring them in inside at night. But this might be true for the entire subdivision. I have it a 4 star because we had a great time we our friends, and that is what matters.

Wonderful timeaway

by Sundar R.
The house was beautiful and very clean. The beds were very comfortable, bunk beds and floor space. Peaceful and quiet on the deck with a hottub. The house was immaculate and the kitchen and restrooms was well stocked with all your basic needs. We had a wonderful weekend. Rental office communicates very clearly and responds quickly. Super easy to work with and extremely accommodating. We will definitely be returning to the area and will rent this house again.
