Location, Location, Location

Once you have a planned itinerary or some travel inspiration, pick a region to begin your search in. Searching within a specific town is key to finding a spot within the perfect vicinity of your destinations. Keep in mind that many rental companies can provide you with information on favorite attractions in their area!

Pro Tip: Don’t be afraid to try out an adventurous location that may be a detour from your daily commute! Some of the best vacation rentals in West Virginia are hidden gems.

Filters are everything

On many vacation rentals services and websites, there is the option to apply filters. Whether you are looking for pet-friendly rentals or cabins with a hot tub, be sure to add these filters to your search. This will narrow your search and give you more time to search for fun Almost Heaven activities.

Pro Tip: If a website does not allow you to apply filters, add your desired amenities to a simple Google search for better results!

Read the reviews

No one wants to end up in a rental property that doesn’t match its online description or photos! Save yourself the trouble and look for properties with high quality reviews. If particular items are important to you such as parking or WIFI, be sure to search through for mentions of these keywords.

Pro Tip: If a rental company does not list reviews on their website, be sure to check out their Google business listing or Facebook page. Often times great reviews are available on these alternate sites.

Dream big

The beauty of searching for a vacation rental in West Virginia is that the sky is the limit! Everything from barn lofts to luxury resorts can be found within Almost Heaven. Visitors never have to err on the side of the ordinary, as our vacation properties are as unique as our wide variety of destinations.
