Affordably priced for a romantic getaway or family retreat~beautiful Berkana!

When researching the word Berkana, I discovered it is a rune believed to have magical powers. The rune Berkana represents everything from birch trees and romance to healing and rebirth. It all seemed a little mysterious to me, but then I visited the property and I have to admit, it became much clearer. This incredible rental property is hidden on 14 acres of magical mountain property. Outside there are woods to explore and places to hike, ponds and streams to reflect by, and even a labyrinth that provides the perfect maze for contemplation and meditation. Extensive decking connects the house to nature in an almost mystical way that brings the outdoors to you. This cozy house offers an open floor plan with a generous kitchen, ample dining area and comfortable living room that features a large stone fireplace. Enjoy WIFI, cable TV and private sleeping for 4. Love Berkana but need more space? Look for Berkana and the Guest House and share the experience. Please note:Access to the garage is not included with rental of the house.

Property Reviews 
Peace and quiet...
A guest from Severna Park, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in August, 2014
The Berkana house was very nice. Nothing too fancy, nothing too rustic. Extremely secluded and relaxing. My only (minor) criticisms are that the grill has seen better days and some Adirondack chairs for the deck would be nice.

Successful seclusion
Vickie M. from West Chester, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in June, 2014
We were looking for time away from busy life in a secluded location. This cabin was perfect for that. The cabin it self was great, spacious and clean. we loved having fires on the deck and waking up to the bird chirping. Water pressure was great, furniture was comfy and the gas grill got lots of use. The only down sides were that the hot tub, though it worked wasnt very hot and the jets barley came on, (inspite of us adjusting the controls) also the down stairs bathroom wasnt too inviting. It could have used some brighter lights, new or freshly cleaned rugs and maybe an air freshener. Loved that the bathroom had a heating option and loved that the master bed room had sliding french doors. We would def come back, in fact we even decided to stay one extra day!

Relaxng
TERRY B. from HAGERSTOWN, MARYLAND recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014
This rental was outstanding and had all of the amenities one would want. There is only one cabin further out on the road and it was not being used. There was never a car or a sound from anything other than birds and squirrels. We had only one complaint and that was the lack of animals. The dear population was the lowest we ever saw in the 40 years we have been coming to Canaan

Great vacation home
A guest from Maineville, Ohio recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014
We went as two couples for the memorial day long weekend, had a great time. The location was just great, the cabin feels secluded though not too far from other cabins and you have total privacy in the balcony. We saw lot of deers near the cabin. Canaan valley is so beautiful and there are some breath taking view points and hikes in very close distance. We enjoyed the trip totally and bring a DSLR, you are sure to get great pictures.

Wonderful house and location all year round
A guest from Washington, DC recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in April, 2014
We spent 5 nights over the Easter break and we were so lucky with the weather! The house was just perfect for us (couple with two teenage boys). It was sparkling clean, despite what the other reviews say, and had everything we needed for lots of good cooking indoors and outdoors. Lots of games and useful maps too. We covered one 10 mile trail every day but left many to do. A couple of the trails started just off the house. The deck is phenomenal and I can imagine it in the fall!!! we are going back for sure.

Spending the weekend at Berkana was awesome. Wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be booking it again in another season to see more of the trails, property, and the labyrinth.

Love Berkana but it needs updated.
Nancy W. from Dunbar, WV does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 6 days in December, 2013
We've been to Berkana many times. We fell in love with its charm immediately and that is why we return. However, she needs some loving care before I would recommend to friends, it just seamed 'run down.' Were wondering if perhaps it had been sold by the original owners since our first visit in 2004.

Perfect for a long weekend "get away"
Donna F. from Cranberry Township, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013
The place was beautiful...loved the loft, deck, fireplace and hot tub, as well as the well supplied kitchen. The location was perfect because it felt secluded, but not "too secluded". I would love to rent this property, including the guest house, with additional family or friends. It would be great that you could have your privacy, yet get together comfortably for meals, etc.

Nice time
A guest from Dublin, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in September, 2013
Had a nice time. House was great and hiking was awesome. You can stop and hike off Canaan valley loop road but it is not a loop - you have to turn around at the far section of the road. Canaan valley is quiet but very nice. Enjoy.

Berkana Get Away
TERRY S. from Wilmette, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013
My wife and I came to WV for a few days to escape the crowded flatlands of Chicago and we loved Berkana. I brought along my motorcycle to ride on the many great twisty roads around Davis (I highly recommend searching out Smoke Hole Road south of Petersbrg or 33 and 250 into Virginia and 72 over to Parsons) and my wife relaxed and read a few books on the beautiful and expansive deck. Riding my Ducati the 3 or so miles in to the house location on the crowned gravel roads was... interesting, but the seclusion of the property was great. It does mean however a bit of a drive to the grocery store in Davis and any wide choice of outside ammenities like restaurants (only two in Davis),drug stores or the like really means going to Elkins as Davis is very small. Not a problem but something to be aware of as Elkins is about a (beautiful and exciting) hours drive away. The property shows some signs of delayed maintenance like doors and windows that are difficult to open and close but nothing that was a deal breaker for us. The hot tub had a serious leak while we were there but the Best of Canaan staff was extremely helpful and had a technicion there immediately to have a look at the problem. Since it was "summertime" while we were there (40 degrees in mid August at night??!) the pricing of the property was very attractive. All in all a very good escape for us, but we were wishing it wasn't an 11-12 hour drive by the time we got home. So four thumbs up from us!

Great place to stay
Brian R. from Parkersburg, WV recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013
Had a very nice stay at Berkana. The house is very nice and the location is great if you want your privacy. Spent the days traveling to Seneca and Smoke hole caverns. The hot tub was great but wish the place had air conditioning because the weather was a little hot the first day but cooled down nicely after dark. Would stay there again for sure.

Berkana is very nice
A guest from Pasadena, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013
Really enjoyed the house, grounds and location. Stayed with my family (including 2 little ones) and had a great time. The kids enjoyed the deck, pond and labyrinth. A daily walk around the lake in the community was very enjoyable.

Will Return
Gregory W. from Burleson, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in April, 2013
Definitely off the beaten path...beautiful scenery, landscapes, wildlife. House is well maintained, clean and a treasure for those seeking a romantic escape or perhaps a memorable time with family. The owners have added several nice touches to make your stay even more enjoyable. Our only regret is that we only had 4 days and could not stay longer. Donna, with Best of Canaan, was professional, informative and helpful. We hope to return soon and highly recommend this property and the management company.

Had a blast
A guest from Arlington, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in March, 2013
We had an awesome time at Berkana. House was clean, hot tub was fantastic, super close to Timberline and Whitegrass. The perfect weekend getaway. My only complaint is that we were confused about the extra cottage. Our contract said we had 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, but we only had the main house which was 2 BR and 2 baths. Not a big deal since it was just 2 couples, but the property management co should have been more clear about what we were getting.

The stay was nice. Wish the hot tub at the main property was working. Would have been nice to have the wifi password while at the property. It was a great time.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Best of Canaan
We wanted to let everyone know that now Berkana has a great, working hot tub at the main house. It is our hope that nearly all of our WIFI systems are unprotected and if not, we do our best to keep track of passwords.

Absolutely Wonderful Except for Hurricane Sandy
Kimberly E. from York, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2012
Loved the property! Loved the location! But Hurricane Sandy snowed us in and put out the power for most of our stay. We persevered until the "Calvary" arrived on Bobcats armed with chainsaws. Definitely plan to visit there again ... but when weather is likely to be nicer. Can't say enough about Best of Canaan ... the ladies there are amazing ... I'd give them 10 or 20 stars if I could!

Great Secluded Spot, but not the most Romantic
Jansen W. from McLean, VA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in October, 2012
The management company was wonderful and very helpful through the entire process, however, the house wasn't that great. I rented the cabin mainly for the fact that it had a nice hot tub, with a private, secluded view into the woods on a big balcony. However, this hot tub didn't work and I spent about two hours trying to figure it out when we checked in and finally gave up and just called the next day to hear that it doesn't work but we could use the guest house hot tub (which doesn't have as good of a view). The sheets on the master bed were deteriorating, and there were stains on one of the hand towels, and one of the blankets. Overall, my wife and I had a good time, but I think that next time we will be trying out a different house with Best of Caanan.

Secluded and peaceful retreat
A guest from Lancaster, PA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2012
Let me first say that I was not going to write a review but I received several emails asking for my feedback so here it is. As many guests had written in the guestbook Berkana is a very secluded and peaceful place to spend a weekend or a week as we did. We did have 2 cleanliness issues with the property; the first was the finding of and the amount of mouse dropping in the cabinets and drawers of the kitchen, no mouse was seen or heard. The second issue was a mold problem in the laundry room, the smell was so horrible that we went and bought gloves and cleaner to remove the mold and smell. I would question if the management company has a regular inspection process for insuring all their properties are well maintained. When we arrived to check-in we were informed the hot tub was broken and someone was there repairing it, at the end of the week the hot tub still was broken. There is a second hot tub at the guest house that was working that we had access to. If the management company and the owner have addressed the mold problem, cleaned up the mouse droppings and repaired the hot tub Berkana would be a 5 star mountain retreat and place to unwind from all stress.
