Wonderful Wald haus
A guest from Pittsburgh, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015
We have stayed in many homes on Old Timberline over the past 24 years.This was our first long weekend spent at Wald Haus. Since we travel with our furry companion, choices are limited. We prefer homes near the top with a view and in walking distance to the trails, however none were available to us. This home was very well suited for our group of 8 and we would definitely happily rent this home again upon return. The house set up is a bit strange with the master bedroom between the two living areas, but we managed that just fine. The living area with the hardwood floors on the corner is a delight! The TVs are new, which the younger crowd was delighted to see, so they are HDMI compatible, bring your chords to attach media. Wifi was off and on which is probably the case in all of the houses. We hiked a 8.8 mile trail from the top of Old Timberline, the longest day hike ever for us. It was wet, but gorgeous! Hiking trails for Dolly Sods are now available online. We fished in the lake, but not as much luck as usual. I saw some VERY LARGE fish, think river monster size, so perhaps it's being taken over by carp? This was also our first time renting from Best of Canaan.They were wonderful.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Best of Canaan
Thanks for taking time to tell us about your time at Wald Haus. It is a lovely setting and we are glad you enjoyed it. Please note that the WIFI should definitely have been on for your use. Although Internet speed here in the mountains is much slower than most folks are used to, it does work. Please don't ever hesitate to phone the office to report Internet problems. We will always do our best to help.

Great house, great location
Forest B. from Reston, Virginia recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in March, 2015
we really enjoyed the Wald Haus. It was the right size for our 2 families- 4 adults and 4 children. The kitchen was outfitted for our breakfast/lunch/dinner preparing needs. The house was very clean. It was a very short 2 minute drive to Timberline Ski resort, which is why we were there. We did not have access to the garage, so we couldn't get to the firewood, but we didn't freeze because the house is equipped with baseboard heat.

This house was great! We have stayed at may houses in Canaan and this was one of our favorites--in fact we came home and booked this house again for spring break! We loved that they provided seeds and nuts to feed the squirrels. This house was extremely clean and well appointed. Being able to bring our dog is a plus! Can't wait to go back in a few months!

A guest from Spring Valley, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in January, 2015
Our stay was great in this home. The home furnishings are a little outdated, we were aware if that from the previous reviews. The home was clean and had plenty of space for 8 people(4 adults &4 kids). The kids enjoyed just playing outside around tin the home, it's beautiful. Thank you for allowing us to bring our labradoodle dog also, it was nice to see his smiling face when we returned from skiing. This home is not too far from Timberline. It is not within walking distance, but we drove back to eat lunch at the house, about 2 miles. And the rental office was very helpful with info!!

Highly Recommended
A guest from Nitro, WV recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2014
This is a great home and in an excellent location. It was very clean and in top shape. Having two living room areas allowed our family to enjoy a room for the adults and a room for the kids. It's a quiet and peaceful setting. Our dogs could roam on the large decking which was totally fenced in. The kitchen had everything one could ask for. The house is a little outdated but everything was exceptionally clean. The one living area with full glass walls created an atmosphere of being outside all the time. Our family loved it.I certainly would stay there again.

My wife and i stayed as a family with 2 young adult children and we all were amazed at how nice Wald Haus is. There was plenty of room, it was clean and well decorated. The wildlife was easy to spot, we fed 2 deer from the deck, they were in the yard below. The setting is very nice, trees provide nice privacy, the neighbors are not terribly close, that was great. We loved it!

Our family (including our dog) had a wonderful stay at Wald Haus. It was in great shape although not super fancy. We loved the fire place and big windows. It had lots of games and puzzles. We really enjoyed the creek too. We would definitely stay there again.We did have one minor maintenance issue but Best of Canaan was very responsive and the staff very professional.

Large, Cozy House
Alex B. from Bloomington, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in February, 2014
We all quite liked the Wald Haus. It had plenty of room, was very convenient to the ski resorts, and contained plenty of blankets, pots & pans, and everything else we could need in our stay. It wasn't particularly new or up-to-date but it was well kept-up and comfortable. The sleds in the garage and the wood-burning fireplace were very fun. I recommend it to anyone who wants a large comfortable place out in Canaan Valley. Although on a map it looks like it is kind of close to other houses, the property is really quite large and full of trees so it feels more like you are alone in a forest.

Nice Home. Pretty Scenery. Relaxing.
Tracy and Brett H. from Pataskala, Ohio recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
This house was so enjoyable. The large deck was beautiful. My favorite thing was to sit on the deck with a cup of coffee and wait for the deer to show up in the yard. At night, we turned on the deck light and there was a raccoon eating out of the bird feeder. He put on quite a show for us most nights. With 2 living rooms, everybody could spread out if they wanted to. And even though it was July, we had a few fires at night in the fireplace to take the chill off. The area is beautiful for mountain biking, hiking, fishing, kayaking. As usual, we really hated to leave at the end of the week.

AWESOME!!!!
Jan S. from Cambridge, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013
The propery was NOT as described--it was so much MORE!! The family & our dogs loved it!! Such a relaxing place inside & on the deck, with the gate on the deck we were able to let the dogs run free. No one had to wait on the bathroom, or had to share a TV. BEST of CANAAN was such a awesome group to deal from the time we were making reservations until after we were home. Had to leave early due to my dog getting a pinched nerve--I thought it was something worse and feared the worse--The staff followed up on my dogs condition and was so prompt in sending something I forgot. The ONLY thing that could be added to WALD HAUS is a hot tub--which we knew from the start they didn't have. Stayed in several rentals & dealt with different Realties this Rental & Best of Canaan has been the best all around. The view--pure nature--was what I wanted & needed. Will be working with BEST OF CANAAN for vacation next year.

The only way this trip could have been better was if we could have had a few more days. Everything was wonderful, from the beautiful home inside to the beautiful outside. the home was stocked with even bird seed and food for the squirrels. Everything worked well with our elderly family and the dog enjoyed the lovely walks. I couldn't have wished for more and I hope we can return again (and again). Thanks for everything.

Wald Haus is a perfect place for friends to getaway
A guest from gaithersburg, maryland recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in January, 2013
This house is really great and I would definitely recommend it to other renters. The check in and check out process was easy. I came with 8 adults and there was plenty of space. Its about a 2 minute drive to Timberline Ski and a 5 minute drive to Canaan Valley Ski. The fireplace was great after the slopes and the house was stocked with enough firewood to last for days. The kitchen was nice and well stocked. I loved the deck and the floor to ceiling windows looking out from the living room.The driveway is a bit steep and the roads can be icy, so they are serious about the 4 wheel drive requirement, but I found from experience that if there are members of your group driving separately with no 4 wheel drive, there is a parking lot by the main gate (but they will have to be picked up and driven to the actual house).The only thing that I did not like about this house was the decor, but I suppose that is just personal preference.

We just got back from a week at Wald Haus. It's a beautiful, private property on a heavily treed hillside. Convenient to Canaan Valley SP or Refuge (10 min), Davis, Thomas, Blackwater Falls SP (25 min), Dolly Sods (40 min) and more. Everything was essentially as described, except we initially had no internet service (resolved quickly after mentioning it to the folks in the office). Home is clean and comfortable. Looking forward to returning in the winter.

Great central location for visiting area sites. Our dogs loved watching the deer and turkey from the floor-to-ceiling windows as well as the deck. I only wish we could have let them run around, but the long hikes during the day wore them out well enough.Enjoyed relaxing and reading in the "den" while the wife watched her soaps in the living room.

Best kept secret for Summer
Arzu A. from Springfield, Virginia recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012
We had a group of eight friends staying at the Wald Haus and had an amazing time! We trailered our bikes there to ride WV roads and due to the location we couldn't get the trailer down the driveway - but it was no problem. The guards were happy to let us place the trailer at the gate; can't ask for better security than that. Donna and her team are beyond professional and accommodating - they helped with check-in and check-out to the needs of our schedule and are more like friends than just property managers. The house itself was spacious, secluded and calm - perfect getaway for up to 8 people. We will definitely come back every Summer!

Wald Haus
Joseph W. from Orlando, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in June, 2012
We really enjoyed our stay and felt like the rental for the week was a great deal. The property is situated in the woods, which we really enjoyed. It did not have a mountain view, but we have found in the past that a high elevation meant a long drive every time you leave and come back to the property. We found this location perfect for us.Since we arrived in the evening and left early, we never personally met the property management company. It did feel a little odd using the convenience store next door for key drop off and pick up.
