1820 two story secluded log cabin for an intimate and romantic vacation retreat providing delightful accommodations.

'Up the mountain and back in time'

My wife and I returned to the Historic Cabin at Gobbler's Knob after 16 years, and were glad to see the place in perfect shape and unchanged. It has all of the amenities you'd like (AC, Jacuzzi, Kitchen, Laundry) but has maintained the authentic 1800s cabin feel. With a great view of the mountains from the back porch and 10...

My husband and I discovered this jem over ten years ago. We come back every year just after Christmas and leave just before New Years. This is our spot to relax, unwind and reenergize for the coming year. Between the mountain setting and the historic cabin you feel as though you have stepped back in time and are able to...

This was the perfect weekend escape. Perfectly clean and well maintained wooden cabin with plenty of space, a fireplace, a large whirlpool tub, in an idyllic location. Back porch to relax with a view on the woods and the mountains. 10 minutes from downtown Berkeley Springs. The owner was very nice. She left a lot of information about what to...

Management response:

Every season has its own special delights. With winter approaching, you might like to know that we offer free lodging to guests who get snowed in past...

About the neighborhood
The cabin sets at the northern end of the Shenandoah Valley atop a knob snuggled between Cacapon Mountain and Sleepy Creek Mountain.
Indian Run and Sleepy Creek meander nearby through working farms that produce corn and hay. It is secluded, heavy forested and quiet. At night
due to the absence of city lights, the stars provide a dazzling display with The Milky Way being the main attraction.
