Keep your Resolutions This Year in Canaan Valley

Each New Year, we all make resolutions we intend to keep the entire year but why is it that we rarely ever do? This year, make it a bit different and retreat on a West Virginia cabin vacation with your friends or family and keep the vows you have made to yourself.

With nearly 30 different homes to choose from, you and your companions will find the perfect cabin rental home for a winter vacation. Instead of offering cookie cutter rooms or homes, Canaan Valley Cabins is a “by owner” website that manages a unique inventory of customized properties. You can find such amenities as hot tubs, fireplaces, and proximity to ski slopes, restaurants and other attractions.

Here are just a few of the top reasons we think you should take advantage of our rentals and join us this winter in Canaan Valley, West Virginia:

Burn Calories

Keep up with your resolution to get fit with the many winter activities available nearby. Have you heard of fat-tire biking? Fat-tire bikes are just as they sound; a bike equipped with a tire that is much “fatter” than typical bike tires. The width of these tires is what allows riders to travel over soft terrain such as snow or sand. Fat-tire bikes can be rented at local and popular mountain bike outfitter Blackwater Bikes. Blackwater Bikes carries a great inventory of rentals and even offers bike shuttles so you can enjoy the “downhill” side of the ride.

Other activities such as downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and hiking in the snow will keep your calorie burn high.

Practice Idleness

On the flip side, our cabins for rent by owner are the perfect spot to follow through on your resolution to practice Hygge. According to Hygge-House, ‘Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) is a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment … ordinary or extraordinary as cozy, charming or special.”

Take a breath, dress in your biggest, comfiest sweater and sip a glass of wine while sitting in front of a wide stone fireplace. Feel the warmth on your toes while the fire crackles and pops. Spend an afternoon in the rental’s kitchen with all the amenities to prepare a home-cooked meal of comfort foods such as warm vegetable soup, hearty meatloaf or a creamy macaroni and cheese.

You’ll probably have someone nudging you to “wake up” when your eyes are barely open when you’re watching a movie that you’d promised not to sleep through again.

Make Memories

Speaking of promises, this year will be the best one yet. Keep your resolution to be more in-the-moment with your friends and family. Ordinary moments are special and will be found on a winter vacation in Canaan Valley. Moments such as sitting around the dinner table together, playing board games, and seeing the white tailed deer on your afternoon hike will be treasured forever. Seeing the magic in the kids’ eyes when you wake up to a fresh coating of snow is priceless and having a snowball fight will be unforgettable (despite the cold fingers).
