Reviewed November 27, 2007

We stayed at a log cabin near the State Park (two floor cabin all to ourselves). It is listed under B&Bs for the area. I just want to say that the photo for the "lake" as they call it for this park is misleading. They make it look huge and talk about fishing and how it's stocked with fish in the summer. We went there and fished on this little tiny what I would call pond instead of lake and didn't pull up anything but seaweed. We only saw super tiny fish swimming near the shallow ends. And you pay a lot to fish for this seaweed that all grows on the bottom of the lake. Or lake algae or whatvever. Don't go there expecting to enjoy catching fish like we did. If you like to row or paddle around a lake with your kids (and a small lake) than it's the perfect spot, but don't think by the picture they show it's some huge lake with lots of fish. It is not.

My husband and I rented an 8 bedroom cabin and we loved it! After debating whether to stay in the town of Berkeley Springs or the resort, we chose the resort and were satisfied with our decision. While the furnishings are dated, the cabin was comfortable with all the amenities and situated in a lovely setting. Quiet and peaceful, we enjoyed grilling every night and having dinner with the tame deer lurking in the woods behind our cabin.

There is plenty to do at the resort, from fishing to hiking and golf. The town of Berkeley Springs is only a short drive (about 15 minutes).

My Wife and I on a lark decided to go to Berkley Springs and I thought the Lodge was at the Springs. It isn't but it didn't matter. We went for New Years Eve and stayed two nights, 30-31. We stayed in a deluxe cabin ( we booked too late for the lodge). the Cabin was great. It was very clean. Well heated and comfy. There was a TV and a great fire place with wood provided (but you need kindling or an articial log. No phone or clock or anyone over head.

Towels are thin, but work and no kleenex in room that I could find. Didn't need the kitchen but it was well appointed for a cabin.

Lodge is nothing great except for the rocking chairs that face the golf course. The weather was so warm that we sat out there and rocked a while. We had dinner at the lodge both nights, Food is okay and service friendly. Desk Staff was okay but you know you are at a state park. Great grond to walk around.

It is about 9 miles from Berkley Springs where I had a Roman Bath and a message, a reat price. I give the town a 2 to 3 on the "Qauintness Scale" and the art place we went to were nice. Met on of the artists showing work. We at at Tari's and it was good, great soup large wraps. On New Year's Day we are Breakfast at the Inn next to the State Spa. The help did not show up so the innkeeper andher husband were doing dining room duty. Wife''s wafffel was good but my country ham was over pirced and dry. Oh well, don't judge this place on my experience, because if we go back to the area we will stay there.

If you've never stayed in cabin and are a litle fearful od the facilities ( our daughter had a bad experiece in an Ohio Sate Park regarding dust etc.) you should not be afraid of Cacapon.

It is Clean, Warm and Comfortable.

We stayed here for a couple of mid-week nights and were happy with it. We stayed in the lodge, which is charming and rustic with rooms that were comfortable, but nothing special. The restaurant downstairs has good breakfast/lunch for the price. There was a bunch to do for the recreationally inclined: tennis, basketball, volleyball, nice-looking golf course--we didn't play--a little lake for swimming/paddleboating, fishing, a timewarp of a game room full of classic old video games and lots of hiking. Beware: the longest/most strenuous trail (forget the name) is more challenging than you'd think. We're in decent shape but were gasping before we made it to the top. Very pretty though, we were glad we did it. All in all, it was a nice state park-y type of experience, though the $85 per night (including tax) felt a tad high for mid-week. But we'd go back.
Other Berkeley Springs recs: Atasia Spa (very relaxing/great massages, not too expensive); the Panorama restaurant (great food/view); Tari's (friendly/very good food/great post-spa lunch spot)

We stayed at the Cacapon State Resort and Park in one of their standard cabins for under $70 per night(weeknight price). It had a full kitchen/bath/fireplace/ac/ heat/etc - however no clock, radio or tv which was fine for us.

The bedding and kitchen items were dated and could be upgraded, but the value can't be beat. If you are driving you can always bring an extra blanket and plates/glasses. We did bring our pillows, but I am fussy about those and always travel with my pillow! If you stay in the standard cabin, I would bring a radio or something for some music just because it was a little too quiet for my suburbianess.

Cacapon had tons to offer folks visiting - golfing, great hiking, swimming with a beach(open Memorial Day), tennis, etc.

Cacapon is about 10 miles outside of the Berkeley Springs town where all the spas are located which I kind of missed that before but it is an easy drive.

We would definitely go back there again.

We stayed at the Cacapon Resort lodge last January as part of a spa package with Berkeley Springs State Park. The rooms were small but clean and in good repair, with rustic pine paneling. The lounge and fireplace downstairs are very pleasant. Other than that there is nothing to do in winter except go hiking or snowshoeing in the park. The restaurant is a good basic place for breakfast. It's about a 15-minute drive on a state highway to the spa and shopping in downtown Berkeley Springs.

If I were to come back for another spa weekend in winter, I'd try to stay in town. The lodge would be a good place for golfers in the warmer months or for hikers at any time of year.
