Absolutely beautiful venue! The mountain backdrop is so gorgeous in itself that we didn't even need many ceremony decorations. The staff was absolutely amazing! The bartenders were polite, made great drinks, and had a lot of personality. In the days after our wedding, the Canaan Valley staff recognized us wherever we went and went above and beyond to congratulate us and make us feel special. Our on-site coordinator was extremely responsive and got back to us with clear, thorough responses any day of the week. Our shuttle driver was fantastic too. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone planning a gorgeous mountain wedding. Our guests have told us repeatedly that they can't wait to come back for their next vacation!Sent on 07/20/2017

It was a wonderful experience. The service was outstanding. WE could not have had such a nice event without their help. We are most appreciative.Sent on 10/08/2018

I cannot say enough good things about CVR and the staff who made our wedding day perfect in every way! The lodge rooms and cabins are clean and beautiful, and the reception space is HUGE and a blank canvas for you to decorate however you've been dreaming! However, it is beautifully rustic alone with a lot of windows that show off the beautiful Canaan Valley views--you can't even go wrong keeping it simple. I recommend a mountaintop ceremony not only because it affords a breathtaking backdrop for your vows (which you don't have to decorate extravagantly because you have nature doing for you!), but also a unique experience of a scenic chair lift ride to the top of the mountain for your guests. My friends and family had such a good time--it's something not everyone gets to do at a wedding (or ever)! Our food was top of the line delicious--it's over a month later and I'm still hearing about how good it was! Everyone we interacted with was so friendly and accommodating--from the front desk to the servers. I especially have to sing the praises of Nancy Guthrie. My husband and I had a year long engagement and thus, a whole year to make plans--Nancy attended to our needs from day one of our contact like our wedding was the next day. She is polite, professional, and detailed-oriented. She went above and beyond to make sure we were happy at every given opportunity and if for no other reason (and there are plenty!), you should choose to have your wedding at CVR just to get to work with Nancy!Sent on 07/16/2018

The amazing staff at Canaan is simply awesome! It is one of the top premiere Destination locations in WV to have your wedding and reception. I love to play there and have never had anything short of a great experience every time!
Always a pleasure to work one of the many Ballrooms and the Bear Paw Lodge to make our couples events outstanding.
A great venue with beautiful views.
