Near Davis, W.Va., the resort areas of Timberline Four Seasons and the Canaan Valley offer a cure-all for Washington-area residents who enjoy the outdoors.

Whether skiing in the winter or hiking in the summer, visitors to this quiet mountain retreat can relax and rejuvenate in a small-town setting.

Among the many options for enjoying the area resorts is buying a vacation home. In addition to having a permanent location for spending long weekends and extended holidays with family and friends, a vacation home offers the possibility of rental income when the owners are elsewhere.

A completely furnished chalet in Canaan Valley, sited on Northface development lot 53, is now on the market for $769,000. The chalet features more than 4,000 square feet with decks that wrap around the house. It has a sharply peaked roof and walls of windows that frame views of the snow-covered peaks and the surrounding trees. An eight-person hot tub sits on the deck facing the woods.

Guests and residents enter the home through glass double doors. Inside, the foyer has ceramic tile floors. Residents can gather around one of the home’s three electric fireplaces.

The dramatic living room has a fireplace and soaring ceilings lined with oversized picture windows. The wood-paneled cathedral ceiling blends well with the ceramic tile floors. A wood mantel, which matches the ceiling, draws attention to the fireplace.

The living room opens to the dining room, which also has ceramic tile floors and a wall of windows. The dining room opens to the center-island kitchen and breakfast area, which has ceramic tile floors, recessed lighting and stainless steel appliances.

The first-floor master suite, one of two master suites in the home, includes a wall of closets and a luxury bath with a whirlpool tub and two separate vanities.

Upstairs, the second master suite has private access to the upper-level deck and a luxury bath with a whirlpool tub and a double-sink vanity. Two more bedrooms on this level share a full bath. The second bedroom has sliding glass doors to the upper-level deck. In addition, an open lounge area provides an extra space for a reading nook or play area.

The finished lower level includes a family room with a full wet bar, an exercise room and a fully equipped massage room with a fireplace. The lower level also has a fifth bedroom and a fourth full bath. A laundry room completes this level.

This West Virginia resort community prides itself on providing excellent recreational amenities, a variety of dining choices and a night spot or two with music. Yet, it is a place where families can reconnect with nature and each other. Streams meander through the woods where visitors will find miles of horseback riding and hiking trails in the U.S. Forest Service land and the Wildlife Refuge. Mountain biking is another option during the warmer months.

During the winter months, skiing takes precedence over all other activities, although snowboarding and tubing are also available. Skiers can enjoy downhill and cross-country trails, and some of the trails now have night lighting. The ski area recently expanded its access to water for snowmaking to increase the number of days the ski slopes are ready for traffic.
