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.

Hidden Jewel at Black Bear Resort

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed there this past weekend with some close friends of ours, another couple. We were amazed at the location, views, amenities, decor, everything. It was perfect for a weekend getaway. The owners are super friendly and professional and make everything easy. If your in need of a romantic getaway, family getaway, or any reason at all to getaway, this is the place. We loved it and will be back. Lisa thanks again!

Being close friends with the owners I have had the privilege of staying at The Butterfly Chalet many times. Each time is always a great relaxing time with everything you could ever need on site. Its such a beautiful home and I love the area! So many things to do and explore right there in the area! Its the high light of my year when Im able to get there for some R&R ! Highly recommend this one of a kind vacation home!

This was a wonderful place for my family this past weekend. We have talked about doing this for years. My Mom came across this when we were looking at other locations and this could not have been better. The house itself is wonderful and we are so thankful to the owner. Everything you need is in this house. Lots to do all around. The kids had a wonderful time and we did not want to leave the view from the porch. I would suggest this to anyone. Thank you!!! Tammy

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

I came here with 8 coworkers for a work ski retreat, and we had a fantastic time. The house was beautiful, very clean, and extremely comfortable. It had gorgeous views of the mountains, and was very close to the Canaan Valley slopes. We had a little bit of trouble getting out of the driveway one day with our 2WD cars, but other than that there were no issues whatsoever. Would definitely return again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us at the Butterfly Chalet. We apreciate your feed back. I am so sorry to hear that you had an issue with the weather/drive way. We do have a 24 hour maintenance staff with a phone number so that they can assist if the snow gets out of hand on the road way. Thank you for letting me know so that I can bring it to the attention of the property manager. The good thing is our place is at the top of the hill.

This is the perfect place to stay! Location was excellent!

We traveled with a 7 yr old with special needs. The gradual ramp and no stairs at the entrance was perfect for him.

I think we picked a great time to come also. We pretty much had the entire resort to ourselves. Meeting new people is always nice, but it was a welcome change to just kick back and relax.

It met all our needs. Family consisting of my husband and I and our 3 adult children and daughter in law. Also 3 grandchildren 7, 5 and 9 month's.

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us! Hayden the 5 yr old keeps begging to go back to the "vacation house". I'm sure if the other two could talk they would be begging to come back as well.

This was approximately our 15th trip to the area, but by far the best accommodations! Thanks again! We will be back!

My wife and I traveled here for our wedding anniversary just for some alone time. What a wonderful place. I use Homeaway for traveling several times annually. Let me say, this home is one of the best. As some reviews will probably mention, if you are a follow your GPS person, forget it for getting here. Once I turned off I-81, it did me no good. I was glad I printed directions from the lodge website and decided to use them for the trip. When we first got off I-81, I thought, oh no, single lane mountainous road for two hours…ugh. But after a while it opened up into a 65 mph 2 lane road that hardly anyone was on. Apparently, WV is building a lot of new roads? Of course, this is if you use the lodge directions (or mapquest). If you use GPS, you will be on single lane 35 mph roads for a very long time. During booking, Lisa was wonderful to answer all our questions and everything was as promised when we arrived. The house is AMAZING!!! It looks like a model home. I want Lisa to come decorate my house when we leave. This house has the perfect feel of luxury mixed with comfort and warmth. I know people say the pictures don’t do it justice, but they really don’t. The home sits off to the side of the other lodge homes so it is mostly by its self and private. This home is the biggest style the lodge offers and I am willing to bet the most premier one here. The lot is very nice and well landscaped. The view from the great room, which lead out onto the deck is to die for. The first night, we sat out on the deck just enjoying the view and the weather. All the furniture, from the chairs to the beds etc was very comfortable. The kitchen is definitely gourmet style and stocked with plenty of utensil and supplies for cooking at home of interested. There is an extra refrigerator as well. All the bathrooms and bedrooms are comfy and gracefully decorated. If you have used homeaway before you probably know there always seems to be one or two rooms in the house that is just a kids room with a couple beds or cheap furniture etc. But not this house. There is plenty of room. The internet worked great. My wife made steaks on the grill and mash potatoes for dinner one evening. We had everything we needed. The appliances are awesome. I really liked the arctic compartment on the refrigerator for keeping beer mugs cold. There is a Sac n Save just a short 5 min drive to town that has everything you need at decent prices. Try the Ice Cream shop for treats & Sankofa Massage for massage.
