“Awesome Winter Vacation!! 5 STAR!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

My wife and I stayed 3 nights at Canaan Valley Resort. The resort is in pristine condition and spotless. All the staff we encountered were very professional and friendly. The Rooms Division Manager, Alice, was always willing to help and very hospitable.
We had a great time at the Canaan Valley ski area right down the road. We enjoyed skiing and getting to go tubing! This is the perfect place to enjoy winter fun then head back to the resort and hop in the hot tub or sauna.
This was our first time ever experiencing 'real' snow and are so glad we chose to stay at Canaan. Davis, WV seemed to be a quiet little town where everyone was always so nice. In our opinion everyone should stay at this resort at least once in their lifetime. We will definitely be staying at this resort again in the future.

We secured the Learn To Ski package (now known as the First Timers Package) during our stay in December. What a deal! For $99 each, we got lift tix, a 2 hour snowboarding lesson (ours was private!), snowboard rentals, a King size bedroom, and a huge breakfast! I was shocked at how much we saved by doing this deal. The lodge is beautifully renovated. There are 2 small game rooms with pinball, arcade games, a pool table, etc. There's a cute swimming pool with 2 saunas and a gym. And there's a bar for late-night bites and drinks, a cafe for pastries and salads/sandwiches, and a bigger restaurant. The restaurant had good breakfasts with a fantastic view of the valley, but we tried their dinner food and it was way too salty for me. I had to send mine back, but the waitress and cooks offered to comp me on it. I do, however, recommend eating out at Hellbender Burritos (HUGE, delicious burritos) about 15 mins away. The room we got in the main lodge was very nice, spacious, and clean. We really couldn't have gotten a better deal. THe hotel also offers a free shuttle to the slopes. Thinking of making the drive from DC again just to get one more stay out of this awesome deal!

If you're looking for more activities nearby, check out Blackwater Falls. It was beautiful covered in snow!

Thank you so much for your warm and wonderful compliments! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay, and that you took such great advantage of our packages. We truly hope that you have the opportunity to visit us again this winter! You'd also love Canaan in the summer, a beautiful respite from the heat of the city, with tons of fun summer activities throughout the park.

All the Best!

We've been at this resort many times over the years and the property started to show some age signs. Not anymore: the lodge is fully renovated, the rooms are all internal (i.e. you do not need to walk outside to reach the main area with the restaurant and pool etc.) and the staff is even more welcoming that before.
We stayed in a Junior suite on the fourth floor: very spacious, comfortable beds and bathroom area. It even had a mini-bar area with counter-top and stools.
You cannot bring your ski equipment to the room, but you can check ski and boots at the reception, where there is the ski storage area, very convenient, You can check them out when you are ready to hit the slopes and the entire process is very efficient.
Getting from the North tower to the Hickory room (restaurant) could be more straightforward (you need to get 2 elevators). All considered, this is an excellent value, with reasonable prices, in Canaan Valley.
Highly recommended.

I've been here 3 times and absolutely love it! The staff is warm and welcoming and everything is spacious but cozy. I've been here once since it was all renovated, they did a great job transforming it! Very clean and great for families.

This was my first visit to Canaan and look forward to coming back again. I recently stayed in one of cabins and found them to be incredibly spacious and clean. Just a short walk or drive from the main lodge, you can either keep to yourself or go up to the lodge to use the facilities. The food was terrific and the staff very warm and welcoming. The view from the indoor pool is just amazing though the changing area could do with some regular cleaning.

My first visit to the new lodge. Great few days in a terrific new building. Great rooms and the dining areas are terrific. Prices are still very reasonable. The staff was friendly and helpful. Love Canaan!
