Young Family on Early Spring Break
John M. from Charlottesville, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2017
We had a really great time at Touchstone. Cozy, private house with great trails nearby and a really nice hot tub. Even with no snow at White Grass, our little family (and our yellow dog) had a great time.

"Touchstone" defines the experience.
Richard S. from Dover, DE recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in October, 2016
We have rented many properties in Timberline over the past fifteen years, many huge and new, but none compare to Touchstone. The views from the large and private back deck and hot tub are spectacular. We also enjoy how the property connects to some moderate and scenic walking trails in the conservancy area without having to drive anywhere. "Touchstone" defines the experience.

Amazing location and everything you could need!
Christina B. from GWYNN OAK, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2016
The house was amazing! The lake that is a quick walk from the house is beautiful! The town is about 9 miles away and at night you're completely alone with nature. It was an incredible weekend! We will definitely be back!

We Loved It!!
Elizabeth H. from Fredericksburg, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in February, 2016
I usually don't take the time to write these reviews but I just had to for this one. We had probably one of the best impromptu vacations ever and a big reason is because this rental was just perfect. Not only was it comfortable but they also really thought of everything for renters. They put hooks for travel items everywhere, they had special little soaps, and lots of bedding and towels. The hot tub was just fabulous after skiing all day and worked "like a beast" as stated by the rental company. The wood burning fireplace just added to the winter vacation feel. Flat screen tv with prime channels, even one in the kids room. Tons of beautiful dishes, huge garage, and comfortable beds....best of all we were able to bring our faithful friend Yogi Bear, a 100 lb German Shephard who also seemed right at home. The backyard is very private and you can go for walks in the wooded area near a pond. Didn't see or hear any neighbors and we were minutes from 2 ski resorts. We will most definitely be back!! Thank you:)

Christmas at Touchstone
Sandra M. from Chapin, SC recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in December, 2015
We wanted a stress less Christmas holiday this year. Our week at Touchstone was that and much more. No snow, but everything else was perfect. Love that the location of the house makes it feel so private, yet if we were there to enjoy winter sports or summer hikes they were just a step away. Wish we could do it next year.

Great for our family get together
Cheryl K. from Easton, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in October, 2015
We enjoyed all aspects of the property including the rowboat and the hot tub. Kitchen was very good for family cooking. More seating in the living room would be nice. I brought a folding chair. Was surprised with the request to strip the beds and put the towels in the wash and be out by 10 am.

A Place in the Wilderness
David P. from Pickens, SC recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2015
A very nice well maintained house. Well equipped, with modern appliances everything worked as it was suppose to. Very quiet peaceful location. The only improvement would be to upgrade the grill. The outdoor grill does not match the quality of the rest of the property. But overall I would recommend this property and stay here again. Value for price was very good.

Touchstone on the Lake - Loved it!
Patrick M. from Fairfax, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015
Lovely properly and amazing setting on a pond and short walk to the lake. Very private and quite. The back deck is wonderful. The only negatives was the kitchen had lots of stuff but the pots and pans was a hodge podge of different stuff and a lot wasn't useful. If you plan to stay in and watch TV, its not your place, but who would come to Canaan for that? TV was basically a computer monitor and there were only a few stations. Overall would highly recommend Touchstone

Stayed for 5 days in August, 2015
Had a nice relaxing stay at Touchstone. This is a great location with the lake in front and the mountains behind. Lots of hiking trails and wildlife.
