Exceptional

by Nancy W.
Place was so spacious, lovely and well taken care of. Great location, not far from Davis, and Thomas. Had everything imaginable to use in the kitchen. We did venture to Dolly Sods and Seneca Caverns. I loved how the backyard was fenced in as well foe our dog. Would highly recommend this place, and are thinking about rebooting here for next year. Also you don't need to load up and take groceries bc Shop and Save is right in Davis
Thank you for your review. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay at Ranger Station. Hope to see you again soon!

Ranger Station

by Lyne S.
We had a very nice time. Because the yard was fenced in our pups had free range to enjoy exploring. The house was open and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with pots, pans, dishes and utensils for the six of us. The fireplace was a bonus for the one cold night. We would book again.
We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Ranger Station. We hope to have you back sometime in the near future.

Really nice and peaceful

This home way perfect to relax on the deck and watch the kids play in the yard. Very conveniently close to many hiking areas and to enjoy walking and fishing the close by lake.

Nice getaway in the woods

by Crystal G.
I frequent staying back in Old Timberline because I love the privacy, some of the houses let you bring your dog(s), and the private access to the hiking areas and ponds.

We had a great stay but this place was probably one of my least favorite places we have stayed. I loved the theme and the back yard was really private which was nice. The house is right off the road with other houses nearby so the front wasn't quite as private.

It was a little outdated inside and didn't have quite as nice amenities as we usually stay and a little more run down if I'm being honest.

We probably won't go back to this place but it did make a nice getaway for a week's trip.

Summer Fun

Great central location for our family of 5 to explore the sites of Canaan Valley and surrounding areas. We made good use of the fishing pond across the street and yard games and bikes in the garage were a happy surprise. Kitchen was well stocked and house well maintained. We were nervous about having no A/C in July but the mountain air was cool and breezy and surrounding trees gave shade and privacy. The private trail access to Dolly Sods as well as the access to 2 larger ponds and community trails were wonderful and a nice bonus.
Thank you for your review of Ranger Station. We hope to have you back soon!

July 4th week

by Brenda A.
We rented the Ranger Station property. It was clean, VERY well stocked with essentials, just as it was advertised. Relaxing and spacious, well maintained front and backyard.

Vacay

by Ellen W.
The association was very nice. Lakes to fish, trails to hike. Not very much fun with the soybean oil but I get the concept to keep the dust down.
Thank you for your review on Ranger Station. Happy to hear you enjoyed your time!

Comfortable and Convenient One-Story Home

by Nancy G.
Ranger Station was overall a terrific place to stay, roomy and clean. Having a place all on one level (with just a handful of steps up from the outside) was great for our group, and the fact that the bedrooms are all in one part of the house that can be closed off with a door from the main room (so that some can stay up to see movies and others not) was also very handy. There is a working VCR not listed in the amenities, btw. The pond and gazebo just across the road are pleasant, and nearby homes are mainly out of sight even though there are signs of life on the roads. We loved the National parks theme (carried out throughout - there were even National Parks pop-up books and a lot of wildlife/conservation books in a desk area in the living room). I would definitely rent this place again.
A few things that might matter to some guests but not others:
-There is wifi, but it's not secure (we got a warning, didn't mind much) AND not as strong/steady as some guests would need. A friend who had an important zoom meeting decided to go home early rather than risk the wifi. The wifi was good enough for streaming at some times but fussy..
-We were there during a freak May snowstorm with lots of after melt followed by rain. This may have affected our water supply, which was orange (due to tannic acid that's heavy in that part of Timberline, we were told), even though the ultraviolet filter in the house had recently been changed/updated. We were OK, but if this would concern you, you might want to check w/mgmt before you book to find out if things have settled down.
-In general the place is WONDERFULLY well equipped (kitchen, grill equipment, extra bedding and pillows), but I wished I had brought a good paring knife
Thank you for your review on Ranger Station. We are glad you made the best of the May snow! Hope to have you back.

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!

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!

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!

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!

Nice well-equipped house in the good place

by Leonid G.
We stayed for a month and enjoyed every day of it. Large bedrooms, large leaving room with TV, good internet, two porches, one under the shade of the large tree. Huge refrigerator. Everything that is needed for an extended stay. Large garage.
Thank you for your review on Ranger Station. July is a wonderful season to enjoy Canaan Valley. We hope you will come back again!

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!
