Resort Description

Canaan Valley Resort is your destination for EPIC adventure this season. Situated in one of the most scenic and undeveloped settings in the Mid-Atlantic, you'll discover the real reason why West Virginia is known as Wild & Wonderful. Nestled in the highest mountain valley east of the Rocky Mountains, Canaan Valley Resort boosts a base elevation of 3,100 feet.
