Guestbook comments from the owner

We recently placed our property on VRBO because we wanted to lower the cost of family vacations for families with children. As our three daughters continue to grow we always valued the wonderful time we spent at Carminden Cottage without spending a lot of money. The kids would help make a healthy breakfast every morning before we were off fishing, biking, swimming, or sightseeing. After long,hot, tiring days we would come home fix dinner,make some delicious brownies, maybe watch a movie and play in the Hottub on the back porch. On special days the kids would invite friends over for dinner who they met while swimming.

We would go to dinner at least twice during our 10 day stay. Big Johns was the kids favorite. They would order pizza. Go on the back steps and feed the fish, or play games. The wife and I would get a minute to catch our breath and talk about how relaxing the time had been.The other dinner outing was at the Golden Anchor. This is absolutely my favorite seafood restaurant. All the workers remember the kids, and the owner visits every table. If you are seriously interested please call. We are new at this and want to build our business. If price is an issue, make us an offer. We know if we get you to visit once...you will return, again and again! It's the magic of Canaan Valley. Call today and get your reservations..

Wonderful Long Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this cabin for four days, along with our dogs Woody and Riley. We loved the cabin and the quiet nights, and found that four days was not nearly enough time to explore the area. We hiked at Seneca Rocks and at the South Branch of the Potomac, and also visited Blackwater Falls and saw a bit of the Dolly Sod. Our favorite place to eat was the Blackwater Brewing Company in Davis - pretty good food and excellent beer! Floyd was wonderful in making sure we had the information we needed. And, the HomeAway listing was exactly on target. Thanks - we really enjoyed the visit, and hope to return! - Janet

Cozy, beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cozy cabin! Absolutely beautiful on the outside and in. Our daughter loved running around in the large front yard and swinging on the porch swing. The house had everything we needed for our stay right down to the wine bottle opener. The owner was very accomedating. He sent us a welcoming text to make sure we found everything and to see if we had any questions. We loved the close by state park and restaurant. Looking to make this a yearly destination for our family for years to come. -The Smith's

Amazing Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin had everything needed to spend a few days away from the busy city life. When we arrived we had no problems accessing the cabin and entered to a very clean and comfortable home. There is a grocery store 10 minutes away and hiking also just a few miles away. The owner was very helpful and understanding and always responded to our messages. The Jacuzzi was the highlight of our stay. Highly recommend this cabin!

Warm but wonderful

  • 5 of 5

I recently came down to WV with two of my daughters and three of my younger grands to ski for a few days. Although the weather was a bit warm for skiing, we all managed to have a fantastic time nonetheless. From the time I made the inquiry about this house until we left, Floyd, the owner, couldn't have been more attentive to our needs. The house was perfect for us, and there was everything we needed, including a hot tub which was a hit with the kids. There were enough beds for all of us and the kitchen had everything we needed. I would highly recommend this property and would love to return some day.

Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were dealing with our first big holiday without our mom and we wanted to do something out of the ordinary. I was lucky enough to come across this pet-friendly listing. We had a lovely stay and enjoyed exploring (kinda) nearby Davis and Thomas. Highly recommended when you want to "get away from it all."

Very comfortable and truly pet friendly

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here Memorial weekend and also it was our 7 year anniversary. This home was wonderful and the location is outstanding. The home was so cozy and very comfortable. The hot tub is very nice and our two Labs loved the yard.
