Canaan Valley
Getting There
Canaan Valley Website

Canaan Valley is very isolated with only the small town of Davis nearby. Lodging is limited and we recommend you reserve early, by Thanksgiving if possible. However, you can find very nice lodging here, at about half what you would pay at other top ski resorts in the region.

For skiing at Canaan Valley we highly recommend Canaan Valley Lodge, right there in Canaan Valley State Park. This is the premier facility in the area. You have hotel type rooms (top left), a great restaurant (The Aspen Room), hot tub, beautiful indoor heated pool, fitness room, ice skating rink, and deer grazing outside your window. There are also a dozen log cabins scattered through the woods if you’d like a little more privacy. They run a shuttle to the slopes and there are package deals available. The photo at right was obviously taken in the Summer, but its surroundings are just as scenic in the Winter.

A second option is the Windwood Lodge. It sits right at the base of the mountain, and you can look out the restaurant’s picture window or from your room and watch skiers descending the Timberline slopes.

Windwood is four miles from the Canaan slopes. It is a rambling log lodge facing an air strip and another dozen rental chalets. One wing is a dorm style bunkhouse for groups (see photo top right). A fine restaurant can tailor meals for your group, including special servings for late arrivals. A small bar with pool table and dartboard occupies a niche down the hall. And there’s even a telescope for you to check out the slope conditions while you wait for your food. But this place has a loyal following. A cancellation might open up a single room once the season starts, but you need to book a group back in the Fall.

The Village Inn is another option. On Route 32, four miles from Canaan Valley, it offers 18 rooms, four apartments and two chalets. There is no restaurant on premises, but several are a few steps away.

Another choice along the base of the mountain is Deerfield Village Resort.

Just outside the town of Davis is Blackwater Falls State Park Lodge, seen at right during the Summer. This is a very nice facility in a beautiful setting, eight miles from the Canaan Valley slopes.

Inside the town of Davis are the Best Western Alpine Lodge, Davis Inn, and Mountain Aire Lodge.

If you enjoy bed and breakfast accommodations, try the Bright Morning Inn, Meyer House, and Hill House, all in Davis.
