About

Up to 300 guests

Canaan Valley Resort is a wedding ceremony and reception venue in Davis, West Virginia, whose unique mountains and natural setting provide a perfect location for couples who want a country-style wedding. The staff at the resort understand that planning a wedding can be very time-consuming, so they’re prepared to help take care of whatever details they can so that you can enjoy spending time with your guests. This affordable, year-round resort has a rustic, classic vibe that’s hard to pass up.

Facilities and Capacity

Canaan Valley Resort can accommodate up to 750 guests across their eleven event spaces, offering couples covered outdoor, indoor, and uncovered outdoor locations. Outdoor ceremony venues include a romantic mountaintop, the recreation center, the golf course, and the bear paw plaza. The bear paw plaza can also be used for your reception, as well as the bear paw lodge and pavilion. There’s 25,000 square feet of indoor event space, so you’re more than welcome to keep your entire wedding (ceremony and reception) indoors! And if you choose the mountaintop location, you and your guests will get to ride up via a scenic chairlift. No matter your style, Canaan Valley is sure to have a space that will fit your style.

Their event services include accommodations, an on-site bridal suite, event coordination, and clean-up following your event. They have lodge rooms, suites, cabins, and cottages for you and your guests to stay in, and you can make use of an outdoor pool during the warmer months!

    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!

    The staff is very conscious and always willing to go the extra mile to please us. Amy, Nicole, Cherie, Billy, David H., and the other staff members were extremely helpful to make my daughter's wedding run so smoothly. It even rained and the staff went above and beyond their job description to make the wedding run so smoothly. It was a beautiful event and I want to THANK everyone that was involved to make it an exciting and successful event.
