The Great Escape

Guest Rating:

Sleeps 14, 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

285 Winterset Drive 6 Winterset Canaan Valley, WV 26260 United States

I recently saw someone wearing a t-shirt that said "I would rather be in the mountains". No kidding I thought. The mountains where the stars are brighter, the air is cleaner and the quiet is even quieter. Does that tempt you to make "The Great Escape"? This lovely custom built home is equipped for family fun in every season. Bikers, hikers, boaters, bakers and even couch potatoes will love the location in every season. Guests will enjoy WIFI, multiple TV’s, two gas fireplaces and an outdoor hot tub. The open floor plan makes cooking, dining, visiting and TV watching all social events. Teens and tweens can escape to the loft or downstairs family room for some “parentless” peace and quiet. Go ahead and make The Great Escape to the mountains! Reserve online or call and let a member of our staff take care of the details for you.

    The house was clean and very spacious. The couches were comfortable, and the kitchen had everything necessary to make dinner. There were no issues during my stay. The location is great for exploring the local area, like Dolly Sods and Spruce Knob. The area itself is quiet and secluded on the corner. I would definitely recommend this house for a nice summer getaway.

    a guest from East Elmhurst, NY recommends this vacation rental

    The Great Escape was a beautiful house, it may not look as such from outside but once you get in is enchanting. The big glass windows allow the light to shine in and one can contemplate nature from the comfort of their reclanible chairs. At night you can see the starts and moon through your window giving you the sensation that you are outside.
    The only thing I found unpleasant was the noise of some neighbors. Quiet time is at 11, however there were people that did not respect this rule and if you are outside you can hear their noises and no one came to implement this rule. The noise takes away from the natural sounds surrounding you while you having a fire outside. Once inside I did not hear the noises.

    After having two previous reservations cancel, I was pleased to find this home. It was big enough for our group of 13, with plenty of bedrooms. We were able to visit Blackwater Falls, Seneca Rocks, Dolly Sods, Spruce Knob, and several other places, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Thank you for a great weekend!

    The hot tub had a few challenges, but that seems to common theme when renting ski houses.
    We were definitely choose to stay here again.

    The house was amazing!! The small kitchen appliances need to be replaced. There were several appliances that did not work, which made cooking very inconvenient. There was not enough garbage bags, laundry soap or dish soap.

    • Manager Responded on 1/3/2020

      So glad you loved the house! We are working on getting the appliances in tip top shape and so sorry about the lack of a few things. We hope you will come back and stay with us!

    The house is comfortable and well equipped. We liked the location and that all the bathrooms had walk in showers. My elderly parents were with us and the layout of the house worked for us. The front steps need a handrail for easy access Beds really are squeaky but comfortable. We stayed 6 days and had a great time!

    Beautiful House and we had a wonderful stay
    The House badly needs some minor maintenance though as fireplaces (2) did not work, lightbulbs missing, downstairs freezing, no signage outside so very hard to find BUT a lovely lovely house and we would stay there again.

    • Manager Responded on 12/2/2018

      Just a note to let you know that our maintenance department replaced a number of light bulbs in the house...and they are available to do that 7 days a week. They also report that both of the fireplaces are in working order. We apologize if the downstairs rooms seemed cold but again, a maintenance person is only a phone call away. Thanks for sharing your concerns.

    This was the perfect place for our small family reunion! It was clean and comfortable, and there was lots of space to spread out. The open concept downstairs made eating and hanging out together easy and the hot-tub and porch were wonderful. We enjoyed the proximity to downtown Davis for stores/entertainment and there were lots of fun outdoors things to do!

    a guest from Cuncinnati, OH recommends this vacation rental

    The cabin overall was satisfactory, great location, plenty of room for our group of 12 (8 adults and 4 children). It is bigger than it looks from the outside. It has everything you might need, grill, jacuzzi (we did not use), kitchen well equipped, etc. The check in/ check out, no problem, reservation process was pretty straightforward. Now a few things were I think the management can improve. The furniture seems like it needs an upgrade. One chair was broken, same for the railing on one of the bunk beds. The beds were uncomfortable, squeaky. Bring your own pillows (I never do and regretted it this time). Bathrooms have only a couple of soap bars, so bring toiletries (which is fine, but good to know by others). The master bedroom had a funky smell that persisted for the entire time. We thought it might have been from drains in the bathroom, but even after running the water, no change. Also the bedding in the master bedroom did not look clean. Luckily I found some clean ones in the basement. The master bedroom faces sun so you better be a morning person, cause sun it on you through the high windows. Kitchen had everything, but we could not find a cutting board anywhere. That would be good to have, since we prepared all our meals. Couches, TV, all good. It would be good to have a larger dining table considering this cabin can host so many people. One other thing - there was nongarbage bin outside, so we had to keep trash bags on the deck and bring them in inside at night. But this might be true for the entire subdivision. I have it a 4 star because we had a great time we our friends, and that is what matters.
