                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: We are in our 30's married and live in the D.C area. We love for you to be guests at Retriever's Retreat.

                      Why the Owner Chose Berkeley Springs:
                      On our first visit to Berkeley Springs, we were drawn to the character and charm that the town offers, and we soon found ourselves in the office of a local realtor ready to make an offer on a cabin near Cacapon State Park. The cabin had “good bones” but had been neglected by the previous owners. We spent the next year renovating “Retriever’s Retreat” and making it into our haven from our hectic schedules and pace of life in DC. Soon thereafter, Claudio found another home in need of some TLC, and we quickly began work on “Jack Russell’s Ridge.” Our third home, “Collie’s Centennial” was completed in the summer of 2010. As pet lovers, we are pleased to be able to share our pet-friendly homes with your family, and we hope that your time in Berkeley Springs offers you a chance to enjoy the company of family and good friends.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      This is a beautiful three-story log cabin with superb amenities. Sleep in our plush beds; enjoy satellite TV on a flat-screen television with surround sound; toast s'mores over the campfire; prepare a gourmet meal using our modern kitchen with new stainless-steel appliances; enjoy the quiet surroundings and wake up to the peaceful sounds of nature. Our cabin is pet-friendly, and we have a perfect backyard for dogs to run and play. The log cabin is very close (within 2 miles) of Cacapon State Park. A 6,000 acre park where there an incredible amount of activities to do like: tennis, basketball, lake beach, fishing, hiking trails, 18 round golf course, horseback riding, overlooks and much more. The cabin is within 10 miles from downtown Berkeley Springs.
