About the property

About Kim or Monica Williams

Kim and Monica currently live and work in Culpeper Virginia as public school teachers. Both grew up in Pennsylvania and attended what was then Edinboro State College. They came to Timberline as avid skiers as they became a race mom and pop when their son, Seth, trained and raced for the junior team at the mountain. They have been valley regulars for over the last 20 years and plan on retiring in the beautiful countryside of the Canaan area.

Kim or Monica Williams purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Kim or Monica Williams chose West Virginia

While looking for a potential place to retire to, the Luv Shack drew their attention. The unique floor plan and the quality of construction along with the location close to the mountain were too hard to resist. The home is very warm and inviting, great for entertaining, or perfect for a quiet evening in front of the fireplace with a favorite beverage.

What makes this chalet unique

Location, location, location. View the mountain as you sit around the outdoor fire pit with your friends after a great day of skiing.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at the Luv Shack, but now it won't be our last! The accommodations were perfect...just the right size, and the location was great (a 3-5 minute walk to the base of Timberline). The house had all the amenities and was meticulously taken care of. Lots of upgrades. The kids were thrilled with the loft, and we all enjoyed the hot tub after a day of skiing. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Luv Shack was the perfect cabin for our two family skiing getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Two families (4 adults, 5 kids) shared the Luv Shack for a three day ski vacation. The central great room has a nice vaulted ceiling with fireplace, TV with surround sound attached to a nice kitchen allowing the adults to cook together while the kids played. Perfect lodge feeling to it. The hot tub is good size and is just outside the great room. The stars are pretty amazing without any city lights to dilute them.

There is a dining room with a large table for everyone to eat together.

The kids loved sleeping in the loft, which has 6 twin beds and the 3 bedrooms were comfortable for the adults.

The owners, Kim and Monica, are ski instructors at Timberline and were easy and accommodating to deal with. The cabin is 1 block off the main road that goes into Timberline. While not quite walking distance with skis, it is less than a 2 min drive and very convenient.

We had a great time and will be back.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

This place worked out great for our crew of 4 adults and 3 kids. We all loved the hot tub and fire pit, with relaxing views. The loft was fun, but only for older kids since it requires navigating steep stairs. The kitchen was clean and well stocked. Worked out well for us - there was plenty of space, bathrooms, and hooks.

There's so much to do in the area. Hiking, biking, kayaking, rafting, fossil collecting, and of course wildlife spotting.

The Luv Shack is awesome!!! The outside fireplace on the porch is to watch the meteor showers the few nights we stayed there. Siariannis in Davis has the best pizza. Watching the horses and getting a visit from the neighbor dog was great...her name is LittleBit.

Exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in our party from ages 9 months to 67 years had a wonderful time. There were total of 6 adults and 5 children. At no time did the cabin feel crowded. Lots of space for family meals and game time. The kids had a blast in the loft. The house is situated on a great lot at end of cul-de-sac with nature reserve in back yard and on the other side one of the nicest farms I've ever seen in WV. The hot tub worked great as well as the jetted tub in the master bath. A great bonus was heated floors. My 9 month old learned to crawl there, priceless memories!

Thank you for sharing your home.
