About the property


Yes, it is heaven and you will be addicted the minute you step foot into the Valley. If you plan on an adventure or just a whole lot of R&R, you have made the right decision. First of all, enjoy your cup of java in the morning and imagine that you're an eagle soaring over the most amazing scenery that God has bestowed upon us; that's what you will experience here at Black Bear.

Black Bear Resort offers plenty to keep you busy with: fishing, hiking, putt-putt, swimming and tennis courts. The lodge has games, a pool table and a warm, inviting fireplace. Bring a book and relax at the gazebo, and oh, don't forget to use one of the fire pits at night while you reach out and grab a star or two.

Outside of Black bear is a whole big adventure with Canaan Valley's Wildlife Refuge that habitats over 150 bird species, Canaan Valley Resort, Blackwater Falls State Park and Timberline Ski Resort. Visit the historic towns of Davis and Thomas with their unique shops, cafes, and antique stores. The Purple Fiddle in Thomas offers a blend of alt-country music & Whitegrass Cross Country Ski Center is proud of their organic cuisine. Dolly Sods is nature at her finest and Mt. Storm Lake (20 min) has a public boat access.

Seneca Rock is a hiker's paradise and horseback riding with in a few miles. Sooo much to do so be sure to stay awhile.

We have thoughtfully decorated and designed our chalet so we can meet your needs. We would love for you to come visit and take a break from everyday worries. If you have any special requests (honeymoon, birthdays, anniversaries, or special getaways), give me a call.

Thanks and we hope to see you soon be sure to ask for Chalet #88. Special discounts are available right now ! Please be aware the home owner, Lisa Kingsbury will be the only person taking any kind of payment for this rental property. Please call Lisa if you have any questions.

Beautifully decorated and cozy house with everything we needed!

  • 4 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at the Butterfly Chalet. The weather offered such a reprieve from the hot summer weather we are used to. It was easy to feel at home there with everything we needed from a fully stocked kitchen, to multiple televisions to a beautiful deck to enjoy our morning coffee. We really enjoyed the large outdoor pool and the kids played many rounds of putt putt golf! We were so close to multiple hiking trails with gorgeous views and it was nice to come home and just cook in and relax like we were at home. We would recommend the butterfly chalet to anyone! The only negative were the construction crews next door, but it looked like they should be finishing up soon :)

Owner's Response: Maggie and family, We are so glad to hear that you got to enjoy the beauty of Canaan Valley and the amenities of Black Bear Resort. I hope you got a chance to use the fire pits and the fishing ponds. We thank you for taking great care of the place. I did get a chance to go up and visit this past weekend and yes the construction is finally finishing up. They had a few things that prolonged the finish. The good news is that it is was the last house. Thank you again for choosing the Butterfly Chalet for your vacation stay. The Kingsbury's

Great get away

  • 5 of 5

7 cousins enjoyed our recent stay at the Butterfly Chalet...thought there would be nothing to do but found some interesting places every day. LOVED the Purple Fiddle in Thomas, the Blackwater Falls were awesome, enjoyed horseback riding and hiking, esp. the ride up the ski slopes at Timberline to see the view! The property was great, very cozy, great balcony, we had a wonderful time and can verify the the phrase...Almost heaven West Virginia!!!

Awesome-soooo nice!!! Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house is sooo HUGE & decorated beautifully, really upscale. 3 floors, we loved all the space we had to spread out. Our girls stayed in the lower level cause they had their own TV & full bath. They called it their apartment. We didn't even need to use one bedroom, it had 4. The views were great!! Huge dining table! We went biking in Parsons-amazing bike trail! We also went to Seneca Caverns really neat experience. Used the outdoor heated pool a lot of course.

The place had everything we needed, pots, pans-fully equipped kitchen only thing couldn't find was a pizza pan. Had a dishwasher as well & had dishwashing liquid to wash dishes by hand but we didn't see any tabs for dishwasher, no biggie we got some. 3 full bathrooms all w/ jacuzzi tubs & really nice hand soap was there for all bathrooms & kitchen. Also 2 huge decks, upper one wraps almost all the way around the house. Lower one shady & partially protected from the rain.

The HUGE mud/ski room when you enter was awesome to have. We were able to store our 4 bikes in there for the wk & our 2 big pool floats & we still had lots of room.

All linens, pillows, & extra blankets, & towels were provided. Front load washer & dryer- there was even laundry soap, but not fabric softener or dryer sheets, so bring your own.

The internet worked well for us. 3 TV's & even the Cartoon Network for our girls. When it was raining or super cloudy a couple channels would sometimes go in & out.

We had one small little issue & Lisa was sooo responsive-she had someone there so quickly. The lighting was amazing & almost all on dimmer switches. Also tons of ceiling fans. Loved the Blackbear nite light in the main floor bath, so adorable. The Brand new keyless entry-keypad-Was super convenient-great feature! Loved that!

2 King beds was great to have as well. Only minor thing I'd say is the King bed on main floor could use a flip or maybe a new cover. The bed is starting to get 2 dips in it & I could feel it a little when I slept.

Only other minor thing was there was construction going on right next door, a couple days, which was a little frustrating cause they would start hammering @ 7:30-8am. This can't be helped & isn't the owner's fault. It's just temporary until that house is finished, kinda wish we had known we would have brought ear plugs.

All in all A+ we can't wait to come back-it was Heaven-the house & the surrounding scenery.

Owner's Response: Thank you for review on the Butterfly Chalet. We appreciate your patronage and feedback. We strive to make our clients visit as you mentioned an "A+" experience. We can only do so with feedback so we can address situations that occur so again thank you for the feedback. I will be sure to have the king bed issue addressed. We did purchase new mattresses recently so it may need a flip. I am so sorry to hear the house next door is still in it's final stage. I will bring it to the attention of the homeowner and property management that the crews are starting early. The silver lining is that is the last construction lot. Thank you for letting me know about the kitchen sink leak so we could have it fixed right away. We do provide linen and towels and a one day courtesy supply of paper products, trash bag, hand soap, dish liquid, dishwasher & laundry pods. I will be sure to let the staff know that you could not find the dishwasher pods. They are kept under the kitchen sink in a white container. We will work on having everything visible and easy to find for your next visit. I will have the pizza pan replaced as well. Kitchen wear sometimes end up in other units and vise versa. :) or used for sledding in the winter. LOL We thank you so very much for staying and we hope to see you back soon. Have a wonderful summer. The Kingsbury's

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Two families shared this beautiful home over Memorial Day weekend. The home was very clean and well stocked. I enjoyed the view from the deck with my morning coffee. We had four small children with us and they had a great time! The resort itself was very nice. Next time we hope it will be warm enough to get in that pool! This was our first time to the Canaan Valley- lots to do for kids. The little towns of Davis and Thomas were so charming. We took the kids to a restaurant called the Purple Fiddle- family friendly, live music and great food.

The owners were great to work with and the property manager was very responsive. We are already planning our return visit!

This house was perfect for our 2 family ski getaway. Well stocked kitchen. Close to slopes & boutiques. Weather cooperated dumping a fresh foot of snow! Lisa was a pleasure. I recommend this house!
