About the owner: We are in our 40's married and live in the D.C area. We love for you to be guests at this cabin that we call Retriever's Retreat.
Why the Owner Chose Berkeley Springs, WV, USA:
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.” (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.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We aim to provide guests with a clean, tranquil, and modern getaway home. 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. Based on feedback from previous guests, we have added Roku boxes on all TVs (which stream the latest 10,000 movies and TV shows via Netflix and Hulu Plus) and upgraded the main TV to a 55 inch LED HDTV with 120+ Dish HD network channels. Should you go to Berkeley Springs, we hope that you choose to stay with us.
