“Pioneer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

This place began the rebirth of Berkeley Springs as a retreat, and get-away. The ideals and views of personal wellness and awareness begun continue on 'til this day through the rest of the town. Thank you so much Sam.

“Fond memories of a great resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

Sam found the property that became Coolfont while hiking with his son. Sam worked in my federal agency at the time, but quit upon getting his Coolfont construction plans funded. I visited him there when the only structure on the property was the old house with the creek running through it, which was his headquarters until he retired in his 90s. It was my favorite vacation spot during all those years -- the food and ambiance were great, and Sam had local or nearby musicians - classical or jazz - every weekend. The organization that purchased it from him said they would have a luxury resort on the property within a year. Whatever happened to them, and to the property? Was it divided into parcels? (Sam sold several 7-acre parcels for second homes, and also recruited government conferences, in order to continue funding his construction.) Further information would be most welcome.

“When it was... it was the best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2011

It broke my heart to see it gone.We went every year, at least once but usually more. It was the constant in our crazy lives. I miss it and Sam. Thank you for all the happy memories for our family
