Private and Affordable Mountain Home!!!

Get away from it all in this charming and spacious mountain home located in a private and wooded setting. Relax in front of the fireplace or unwind in the outdoor hot tub on the large back deck.

Great year round location; close to the ski slopes and the two canoeing and fishing lakes exclusive to the Old Timberline area. Hiking, mountain biking, wildlife watching and more await outside the door of this wonderful home.

Guests will appreciate the convenience of the large two car garage.

Canaan Valley is located in Tucker County WV; there is only one traffic light in the whole county and it is 30 miles from the valley! Peaceful starry nights await you; there is virtually no light pollution in the valley. You are almost guaranteed to see a shooting star on a clear night! If you are looking for a place to escape to that offers peace and quiet then this is the place for you! There is as much or as little to do here as you choose.

Explore the nearby historic towns of Davis and Thomas WV for antique and art shops, restaurants, micro breweries and live entertainment. Davis was named one of the ten coolest mountain towns anywhere by Men's Journal Magazine!

Great year round location! Winter, spring, summer and fall are all great times to visit Canaan Valley. Each season holds its own special beauty.

Canaan Valley winters average over 150 inches of snow and the area offers some of the best skiing in the Mid-Atlantic. Ask about the Ski the Valley lift ticket; one low cost ticket that gets you on both downhill ski resorts, Canaan Valley and Timberline. Timberline Resort offers 1000 ft of vertical with a top elevation of 4263. Great skiing and snow tubing is also found at Canaan Valley Resort. Both resorts have a wide variety of trails for all skill levels. There are endless trails for Nordic and back country skiing as well. Whitegrass Nordic Center is one of the premier Nordic skiing destinations on the east coast. The state parks, Wildlife Refuge and National Forest have miles and miles of trails that can be skied as well. Blackwater Falls State Park has a sledding hill with a tow rope that operates on the weekends. During the week you have to hike to slide.

Escape from the summer heat to this high mountain valley which sits at 3200 ft elevation. Enjoy cool summers; Canaan Valley has an average summer temperature of 75 degrees. The surrounding mountains rise another 1000 + feet and the high point in the state is nearby at Spruce Knob with an elevation of 4863 ft. Outdoor activities this time of year include golf, tennis, swimming, hiking, biking, horseback riding, trout fishing, wildlife watching, rock climbing, river rafting, caving, canoeing, geocashing and much more! Blackwater Falls State Park has some of the most photographed scenery in the state. Blackwater Falls and the Blackwater Canyon are a must see any time of year.

Fall is an incredible time to be in the valley. Peak week is usually the first week in October. Fall festivals are found in the nearby towns of Davis and Elkins. Davis has the Leaf Peepers festival at the end of September and Elkins has the Mountain State Forest Festival the first week of October. There are several nostalgic train rides out of nearby Elkins and Cass that take you on a tour through the mountains with incredible views.

Spring brings new birth to the mountains. Enjoy wildlife watching and the spring wild flowers. Mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding and river rafting are popular activities this time of year. Check with the area resorts for a schedule of activities.

Some points of interest in the area other than the ski resorts and state parks are the Dolly Sods Wilderness area, Seneca Rocks and Spruce Knob National Recreation areas, the Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge and the almost one million acre Monongahela National Forest. Contact us for links to area activities and event information.

Our home is centrally located in Canaan Valley only minutes from the ski resorts, state parks and all area attractions.

Only communicated on the phone and through email but every thing was great and went smoothly.
Very nice relaxing long weekend. It was nice to get up in the morning and sit on the porch and watch wildlife while drinking coffee.

It was very nice working with Becky at Mountain top realty. She helped us with renting the property and she was very thorough in her work. All the necessary details and documents were provided on time. She was kind enough to extend our check out time. Overall it was a very pleasant experience working with her.
The property is very well maintained. It is a nice perfect cosy home for everybody - kids enjoy the spacious living room, adults can enjoy some food in the spacious deck, there is a hot tub to relax, ample TVs in many rooms to allow varied interests for everybody. Kitchen is fully equipped to try dishes. Overall, it was really pleasant staying at Hart's Horn. Thank you.

Office personnel were really helpful and friendly. Had a minor issue with the dryer and had a repairman there within an hour. Would definitely use them again.
Property great for entertaining large group, particularly on the deck. Interior, small living room and entertainment room. Large eat-in kitchen. Upstairs rooms got warm in the evening-suggest getting fans. Master bathroom was great. Bathtub in main bathroom is all marked up and should be replaced. Closet with lots of games was a big bonus!

Very friendly. And we got called back immediately when we called about the sheets.
The hot tub was nice. And the number of beds and bedrooms was a definite plus, especially the room with the three beds and two trundles. Great for the kids to have a sleepover. Also, the coupon for the free lift tickets at Canaan Valley was a serious bonus!!!! Overall a nice place for the value. Not top of the line, but we would stay here again.

Becky was very helpful and we were pleased y'all allowed our group of 25-24 year olds. Very easy rental company to work with and we plan to come back again next year.
The property was everything we were hoping for and more at a great rate. The only thing we wished for was a real fireplace and that the hot tub wasn't set down to 40 when we first arrived. Other than that everything else was perfect for our group. Thank you again!

Securing the property for the week was very easy, Staff very friendly and helpful.
Loved Harts Horn. The whole family enjoyed our stay there. Close enough to our family in Oakland, Md that we could visit and had family come for a cookout. Nice to unwind in the hot tub in the evenings after an afternoon of activities or just enjoy sitting on the deck. Home was comfy and clean. Well supplied with whatever you need. Beds were surprisingly comfortable. Renting Vacation homes you don't usually find comfortable beds and pillows(although we usually take our own pillows)
