Getaway

by Carol K.
The Ranger's Station was quiet and relaxing for our extended family. We enjoyed fishing in the pond, nature hikes, campfires, and attractions within driving distance. Davis was 10 minutes away with good grocery shopping. Kitchen is well equipped for cooking. Highly recommend this place!
Thank you for recommending Ranger Station! We look forward to your return!

Ranger Station

Liked the gated community so that only those who were renting were allowed in. Peaceful and quiet. Centrally located for what we wanted to do. Happy to find accommodations that accepted our dog who goes where we go. The trees were gorgeous!! The garage doors were tall enough that we could drive the Jeep in with the cartop carrier on. This made unloading and loading so much easier and we didn't have to confine the dog while we did so. Great relaxing experience!!
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Ranger Station. We hope to have you back again soon!

Ranger Station

by Paul M.
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Ranger Station. We spent one afternoon at Dolly Sods and did the ski lift at Caanan Valley. It was nice coming back to the Ranger Station and relax by the fire pit. The house is just like the photos. Well felt very relaxed and comfortable. We will do this again.
Thank you for your lovely review of Ranger Station. We are thrilled you had a great time and can't wait to have you back!

Stay at the Ranger Station

Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Ranger Station. Great central location. The rental interior was just as advertised. The back yard was very private. We did walk the fence line and found a few spots where the fence was knocked down, so we did not feel comfortable letting our dog off leash, which is the main reason we decided to rent Ranger Station over other properties. Even with this glitch, we enjoyed staying at the home, the Timberline community and the beauty of the Davis area.
Thank you for your feedback. We hope to have you back soon!

Great vacation

by John M.
Loved the National park theme. Lots of space. A little far off the main road, but convenient to Timberline. Good experience with the realtor. Real good experience.
We are thrilled you had a good experience with us. We can't wait to have you back!

West Virginia get away

by Steven S.
My family and I went to the area with little knowledge. We were thrilled with the area and proximity to many of the sites we wanted to enjoy. The views were amazing and the hiking was great! The house was comfortable, the weather was nice and we enjoyed ourselves very much. I would recommend the house and the area.
Thank you for your review of Ranger Station! We hope to have you back soon!

One week was not enough!

by Yvonne H.
It was perfect! We have plenty of room for all of us and our dogs thought they were in heaven with that big backyard! It was completely peaceful and relaxing and we cannot wait to come back again. Definitely staying for two weeks the next time. Other than having to put in new batteries in the remote, we wouldn’t have changed a thing!
We are thrilled you and the pups enjoyed your stay at Ranger Station. We can't wait to have you back!

Great place for skiing Canaan or Timberline

by Michael H.
House had everything we needed. Liked the National Parks theme. Only complaint was that we had to go out and buy toilet paper as there was only 1/2 rolls in each bathroom.
Thank you for your review of Ranger Station! We so appreciate your feedback and apologize for the inconvenience! Our standard policy is two rolls per bathroom, so that must have been missed. We hope to have you back soon!

Christmas in WV

by Alexandet R.
It is a good experience, nice well-equipped house. There were only two minor disappointments. 1. Gate experience could be better. I filled out entrance form and sent back by email. However i was told it wasn’t transferred from the office. So i did it once more. Next time i will probably take a copy with me. 2. One night our dog was crazy for 30 min because of mouse in the house.

Nice place

by Ricky N.
Enjoyed our stay. Frying pans a little dated. Fabulous fridge. Huge garage was useful for storing gear. Couldn't get the fish to bite.

A great weekend away

We had a great weekend away at this property. The check in process was easy and the house was as described. Our party of 5 felt very comfortable both sleeping and relaxing in the main room. The backyard is fenced in and a nice size which was a real plus with our dogs. Kitchen had all of the equipment we needed for preparing meals. Everything was very peaceful and we had a great time. Would definitely consider staying again.
Thank you for the great review of Ranger Station. We hope to have you back soon!

Not a dog friendly property.

by Nancy M.
The property description is absolutely NOT accurate. The yard is NOT completely fenced and I lost a dog within 20 minutes of being there. Called the rental office and never heard back from them.
Hi Nancy, So glad you loved Lazy S! Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Hope to see you again soon!

Hiking Trip -West Virginia

The Ranger Station was a great hub for our family hiking trip. It is fairly secluded, yet a short drive to many great hiking trails. We hiked, fished, looked for deer, played cards. It was a great vacation!
So glad you enjoyed your trip! Please come back for some more hiking in Canaan Valley!

The perfect getaway

This was the perfect pet friendly home and a great chance to disconnect. We loved the privacy of the house and the proximity to lakes and trails. The house was clean and the staff were excellent.
We love our pet friendly vacation rentals! Thank you for your review of Tranquility Place and we are so glad you and your family along with your fur baby, had a great stay. Please come back and see us again!

Great Weekend Getaway

by Kaitlyn A.
My husband and I loved this home. We wanted a rental that was pet friendly, so we could bring a fur baby along. The home was clean, welcoming, and convenient. The fenced in yard was perfect for us and our dog. This rental has a nice view of a pond with a nice walking trail around it and gazebo. One con that I do need to mention is, there was a musty smell when we first entered the home. The home has two humidifiers and the machines were not running to do needing the water dumped so they could continue to run, once we changed the water the smell was out and the machines ran fine.
Hi Katie, We are so glad you and your husband had a great stay at Tranquility Place. Thank you for bringing the humidifier situation to our attention we will definitely be keeping a better eye on that! Please come back and see us we would love to have you!
