Lovely mountain home is the perfect place for gathering friends and family.

Please don't confuse Bear (a large fur covered mammal found in the mountains of West Virginia) Necessities with Bare (plain, minimal, unadorned and also a catchy song from Disney's Jungle Book movie) Necessities. But hey, come to think of it, some of the sentiment works. This lovely 4-bedroom rancher provides a super space to ?forget about your worries and your strife?. The generous deck provides peace, quiet, scenery, and an outdoor hot tub. Baloo the Bear would find it the perfect spot to "just relax, cool it and fall apart in my backyard". Inside the open floor plan and well equipped kitchen make it easy to whip up "mother nature's recipes" and still be part of the conversation. Loaded with extras, Bear Necessities offers a flat screen TV in each bedroom, a game room with pool and air hockey, a wood burning fireplace, WIFI and more. So many extras at an incredibly affordable why a ?bear can rest at ease?. Winter guests must have four or all-wheel drive vehicles.

Property Reviews 
We love the gated Timberline neighborhood.
Tracy H. from Pataskala, Ohio does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014
We had a good stay at Bear Necessities but there were exceptions that could've made our stay better. As of right now, I would only advertise this home as 3 bedrooms. 1 bedroom had a very musky smell but it did help when a window was opened and the air was blown out with a box fan. Winter would've been unbearable. Alongside this room is a small game room(hard to make some pool shots because of room size)...again VERY musky smell. There is a dehumidifier in the gameroom but the smell is still strong. Recliner that is shown in pics in livingroom isn't there. A little more padded seating would be good. The kitchen definitely needs some things. Can't read measurements on measuring cups, measuring spoons broke, need larger skillets (3 medium sized skillets takes awhile to make sausage/pancakes for 8). Surround sound/stereo/dvd player is not working. The first night, we changed a sheet that looked like it needed to be changed-IF it was just a stain, I would've never used this sheet for guests. A couple of hooks in bathrooms would be a plus to have a place to hang your clothes. Having said all of this, there were some very good things about this house...the bathrooms were spotless, water pressure great, the large, clean hot tub was awesome, the deck was enjoyable, we used the beautiful fireplace, tons of cut wood outside, washer and dryer heavy duty and new, it was nice having tvs in all bedrooms and it was great having a long leash on a rope on the back of the house where the dog could have a little run. GREAT area for hiking, mountain biking and fishing. After coming to Canaan Valley for several years, for the first time we tried the Sawmill restaurant in Davis. It is SPOTLESS and delicious! Best of Canaan Realty is always on top of things. When we got to the house, we called and told them there were no useable pool sticks or darts. The next day, we had them.

Perfect Weather, Perfect House
Russ H. from Arlington, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in January, 2014
Bear Necessities is the perfect getaway for dog lovers who don't need a lot of fancy extras on a ski trip with friends. We had 7 people in our group and there was more than enough room to spread out. The house was extremely clean and very well furnished and stocked with ample firewood. The game room has seen better days, but we weren't there to play foosball or shoot pool. Upon arrival, the wonderful folks at Best of Canaan very apologetically told us that the hot tub was on the fritz. It wasn't a huge deal, and they cut me a refund check the day we checked out since it couldn't be repaired during our stay; such a courteous and helpful staff at the office, by the way! I look forward to staying here again next year, and highly recommend Best of Canaan for your WV ski getaway plans.

Simple Yet Perfect!
A guest from Fairmont, WV recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in January, 2014
This cabin is a perfect get away for a large group of people. The price is great for what you get. Four bedrooms with enough beds for twelve people to sleep comfortably. It also has four bathrooms which makes it nice when everyone is trying to get ready at the same time. The open living room/dinning room and kitchen make it nice for everyone to lounge around and socialize. Overall this cabin is perfect for a large group of people on a budget. It has everything you want for a perfect getaway!!

Wonderful time
A guest from Beckley, WV recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in December, 2013
Had a great time at Bear Necessities. It was cozy and comfortable. The hot tub was low on water when we arrived although it was so cold during our stay we didn't miss it and built a nice fire in the fireplace instead.

Perfect hideaway
Arpana M. from Bethlehem, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in November, 2013
I was here for Thanksgiving weekend with my siblings and cousins, along with 3 doggies. It was perfect. It's secluded and quiet. We loved walking down the hollow at night and admiring the stars (we all live in cities). We also went hiking to Blackwater falls and Canaan valley wildlife refuge. You definitely need AWD when it snows for the drive way. We loved the fireplace- had it going 3 straight days. The whole house was very comfy and welcoming. We didn't have any issues.

This rental would be a great place for a family if the game room was functional. Bedrooms provide adequate beds for a large family.

good vacation rental
Dave B. from Coumbus, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in August, 2013
We really enjoyed our stay at Bear Necessities in early August, 2013. The rental was easy to find online and the Best of Canaan management staff was friendly and helpful. The house is arranged conveniently with room for all of us to sleep (11) and it was nice being all together in the main room. The deck and the hot tub were enjoyable too. There is a lot to do in the surrounding area, with many nearby parks and sufficient grocery stores and restaurants. We though we would need A/C for August temperatures and was disappointed that it was not provided on the property, yet we found that the weather in this area was not too hot after all.
