Lodging and Roomies [Mid-A Gathering 2014]
LHC and JamesJ are more experienced with weekend housing in Canaan Valley since I've been in seasonal rentals for the past 7 years or so. I'm willing to evaluate any housing choices that folks are considering; I may be able to check it out in person since I'm at Timberline nearly every weekend.
Sharing a group house is IMHO the best option for the Mid Atlantic Gatherings. Depending upon the size of the group, 1-2 (or more) houses may work.
- Timberline Four Seasons Realty mentioned by LHC is the best starting point.
- You may also want to check out VRBO.
- You could check out the Canaan Valley State Park Cabins or the Canaan Valley Lodge. However, both are 10-15 minutes away from Timberline. And despite its name, the Canaan Valley Lodge is a couple miles away from the Canaan Valley ski area.
The area around Timberline and Canaan Valley Ski areas is generically called Canaan Valley. It is a rustic, high alpine valley (3200' elevation) with minimal development. In fact, part of it is a state park. The address for Canaan Valley is Davis, WV. The town of Davis, WV is about 12 miles away from Timberline (about a 15-20 minute drive.) Confused? Well, this is West Virginia.
I already know that half of my housemates from last year will not be available for a sharing deal, so my wife and I would like to find others who would be interested in sharing the cost of a slope-side house. Right now there seems to be plenty available.

We've had a vacancy come up in our slopeside house for this event, Feb 21-24. A private bedroom is available for all three nights with a queen bed, Fri - Sun. For a couple in this room it would cost $250 total, this includes all meals pot luck style. Send me a PM for details. First come, first serve. This is a nice place and they just got one foot of snow. You will be sharing the house with about ten other enthusiastic snow riders.
