About Black Bear Resort

Located in the heart of Canaan Valley, West Virginia, Black Bear resort is the perfect location to enjoy the mountains, rivers and recreation of the area.

Set on more than 40 landscaped acres, we have sweeping views of Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge, Cabin Mountain and Timberline ski area. Our resort is located  on Canaan Mountain at the north end of Canaan Valley between Blackwater Falls State Park and Canaan Valley State Park.  We are only four miles from the town of Davis, WV.  Dolly Sods, Seneca Rocks, Spruce Knob and 900,000 acres of Monongahela National Forest are nearby, offering endless possibilities for outdoor recreation and scenic beauty…any time of year!

Our on-site amenities include fish ponds, mini golf, playground, basketball, volleyball, a nature trail, miles of private roads for riding bikes and a large mountain lodge with large decks for meetings, events, weddings, reunions, picnics and more!

Relax, refresh and rejuvenate yourself in one of our comfortable cabins or suites hidden within the trees of our tranquil 40-acre natural setting.

Enjoy panoramic views of the abundant wildlife in neighboring CVNWR from the enormous deck of our spacious lodge.

Let your children explore the playground, or throw frisbees and fly kites in the grassy meadow surrounding our fishing ponds, or walk the trails around the property, through the forest and past the adjacent horse farm.

Experience unrivaled star-gazing due to our community’s “dark skies” exterior lighting policy.
