Claudio Meira purchased this Cabin in 2006
Why Claudio Meira 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” (https://www.vrbo.com/130256) and making it into our haven from our hectic schedules and pace of life in DC. Soon thereafter, we found another home in need of some TLC, and we quickly began work on “Jack Russell’s Ridge.” (https://www.vrbo.com/138293). 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.

Clean, updated, we’ll-stocked kitchen; comfortable beds; peaceful surroundings. Great for couples get-away or a family vacation.
This is a very peaceful retreat! Saw wildlife (deer, raccoon, kitty, birds) while sitting on the deck.
Love all the amenities. There is every appliance that you could possibly need!
There is an issue with boring bees and hornets. Need to get this taken taken care of before they destroy the beautiful cabin.
The floors could be cleaner. Need to wash them. Kind of gritty! Also the vaulted wall is dusty.
Over all it is very convenient to town and the sites around that you can visit. Would highly recommend Cacapon State Park! (Nature Center and Mountain View) Also the Canary Grille was awesome. Good Food, Reasonable Prices, and Great Service)
Thank you for choosing to stay at our cabin, Leo and Kathy. We try to provide everything need for a comfortable getaway. I will let our housekeeper know about the wall/floor though it could be due to that we were making some improvement renovations that were completed prior to your arrival. As for the bees, they are carpenter bees (non stinging) who bore into the log. We have done preventative measures to remove this issue.
We had a lovely getaway with family. The cabin is very “connected,” but we didn’t take advantage of that, as we spent our time in the nearby parks and springs. The cabin itself was well stocked.
Good time to unwind and enjoy family/nature
The purpose of our vacation was to rest the body, mind, spirit. The purpose of our vacation was to rest body, mind, spirit. The little cabin provided all creature comforts. The bed was comfy. The kitchen is adequately stocked and with a supply of groceries we could eat on our own schedule.
There were some items that needed repaired. The handle to the oven was broke ... it did not impact our stay.
The knob to a stereo system was broke. I was going to play some "chill" music but didn't.
Also the Berkeley water has medicinal properties; it also clears the lower intestinal tract ... just saying. My husband, myself, and the dog all were effected.
Thank you for letting us know about the stove and stereo. Based off the feedback, we have replaced the stove with a new upgraded version and have replaced the stereo with a sound bar system so it's easier to have surround sound with a click of a button.
Quiet and comfortable home
This home is very well equipped and well away from busy streets to be very quiet. If you are looking to get away from city sounds and relax, this is the spot for you. Has a nice deck off the main floor without steps down so great for a pet or small children. About 15 min from downtown (extremely easy access). Would recommend and look forward to staying when we can utilize the outdoor fire pit.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at our rental. We hope that when you return to the area during the Summer time, you'll choose to stay with us again.
Cozy cabin with every amenity you can think of!!
This place us well is well equipped and so cozy and cute!! We loved our stay and enjoyed the firepit and video games galore! We were snowed in the first day but that didn't stop us from taking a hike down to the stream aand cooking a big meal in the stocked kitchen. We still defintely be back as we had such a great time! Thank you to the owners ..for providing such a great house!
We aim to provide guests with a clean, tranquil, and modern getaway home, and we are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and the amenities. Based on feedback from previous guests, we fully stocked the kitchen with everything guests would need for a simple breakfast to a full Thanksgiving dinner.
