Berkeley Springs, West Virginia
1820 two story secluded log cabin for an intimate and romantic vacation retreat providing delightful accommodations.

"Up the mountain and back in time"

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 do in the area.

What a treasure! What an amazing 4 days - so quiet and peaceful - like taking a step back in time. The cabin is a great value and the customer care was first-class. The owners are fantastic - it seems there is nothing they haven't thought of to make guests feel welcome and comfortable. The history and realism achieved adds so much to the experience - we feel so fortunate to have been able to...

I booked this for my wife's birthday. The plan was a nice quiet secluded cabin that was in the woods. My 12 year old daughter was with us as well. The owners picked some sunflowers to have in the cabin for my wife. The cabin itself was amazing with lots of antiques and very traditional looking but with some modern amenities (A/C, modern appliances, etc.). We had a great time and it was so very...

Management response:

Thank you, Jim, for your review. I am so happy that the week-end was a successful celebration of your wife's birthday. You and your family are an example of how we should treasure our loved ones. I hope you will return to us some day in the future. Sylvia Thomas
