“Almost Heaven...John Denver was right!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

I am a travel agent in Ohio and had some vacation time accumulated and wanted to head to the mountains. I decided to drive the Midland Trail, Route 60 and on into Canaan Valley, WV. One of the most beautiful places I have ever been truly! I have been to Alaska 3 times, The Smokies more times than I can count, The Blue Ridge, The Rockies, San Vedo in Costa Rico and The Sierra's. The reason I chose Canaan Village Inn was because of the amazing "Inn Keepers" Jana (pronounced Yana) and her husband Sam. The location is amazing! I had a lovely 2 bedroom apartment that was immaculately clean, fully equipped and so comforatable. Jana and Sam do everything in their power to make you feel welcome and part of the family and totally help you with advise of places to see and explore. If you are looking for a Ritz or similar... this is a different kind of 5 star...the simple touches of true "customer service" and even a mini golf course. Everything is close by...Caverns, Senaca Rock, Spruce Nob (highest point in WV), horseback riding, ski resort, Black Water Falls!! So much to see and do and Canaan Village Inn Is your wonderful oasis after a long day of "daytrippin'! I personally cannot wait to go back for the fall colors!

Room Tip: The rooms are super clean and you can even bring your pet.

Stayed in a king room, it was very clean with a good AC unit. We brought our own pillows and I was glad I did, the ones provided are thin. Towels are good, I would suggest your own soap and shampoo. Great price on booking.com

Stayed in 2 bedroom suite. Fully equipped kitchen, comfortable furniture and central location.
Motel needs some cosmetic repairs but clean. Priced reasonable.
Owners welcoming and helpful. Only complaint was the noise from upstairs apt that went on until after 11 at night. Apparently someone had a active youngster who ran from one end of the room to the other for several hours.

I was in WV for the tour of tucker county bike race and we stayed at the Inn for one night. The owners are awesome they were welcoming and very helpful. There is a convenience store, subway, gas station and restaurant all within 200 yards of the Inn, which is great. This is a smaller hotel but enough for what we needed. you don't go to Davis, WV to stay at the Ritz; you go there to be outside, enjoy the mountains and come in so tired that you crash. This place is great for that everything you need nothing you don't. if you want the Ritz go there, not WV.

Room Tip: although we did not stay in one, the apartments are the way to go.

Having stayed here before and been pleased, I promised myself to return after the new management had some time to do their magic. I was not disappointed. Jana & Sam are doing a great job trying to get this previously neglected property back into shape. As a visitor, don't expect a top tier / top dollar experience. What you will get is a clean room at a good price with a staff who will remember you and truly treat you like family. They will do whatever they can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. This property is a work in progress and it is heading in the right direction. They are introducing some new ideas to try to generate business and tourism in the area. Such as: http://www.pickinattheinn.com/ live music events, and exploring opportunities and features that focus on motorcycle travelers like myself. Ask Sam or Jana about discounts for WV residents and return visitors

After getting lost in the park late at night and having to call the owners (Sam & Jana) for directions, we were warmly welcomed and given a room. Our room was very spacious, clean, and comfortable and the bed was very welcoming. In the morning we enjoyed a complimentary coffee and then took off to a wonderful day of hiking at Blackwater Falls. Every time we ran into Jana, she was warm and welcoming - that lady is awesome!!! Our time at this inn was fabulous, Sam and Jana were amazing! We wish we could have been there for "Pickin at the Inn." Sam even took the time to give us some excellent directions for the fastest route home when we ran into him in having breakfast at a restaurant close by. We'll definitely be going back.
