Jack Russell's Ridge, the sister property to the popular Retriever's Retreat, is located three miles from downtown Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. Berkeley Springs is a historic spa and art-filled town nestled in the West Virginia mountains. Famous for being the country's first spa, it was frequented by George Washington.
This vacation home is a bright and airy two-story chalet. The wrap-around deck opens to a fenced in yard--perfect for pets! The large back yard has a fire-ring and outdoor games and provides ample space for guests and pets to enjoy the beauty of the West Virginia foothills. Relax by the charming koi pond to the sounds of crickets, frogs, and birds. Prepare a gourmet meal using our new stainless steel appliances, and after a long day of hiking, biking, and rafting, curl up on the sofa to experience 5.1 surround sound and high-definition TV.
- We have upgraded the main living room tv to a 50 LED HD with Roku that streams both Netflix and Hulu Plus. All TVs in the cabin have ROKU boxes with Netflix and Hulu Plus.
- The pellet stove is not available for guest usage. We have added an electric Fireplace with heat and realistic LED flames.
- We upgraded the red fabric sofa that is in the pictures to a brown leather sofa and added a leather recliner to provide additional comfort to our guests.

About Claudio Meira
We are in our 40's married and live in the D.C area. We love for you to be guests at this cabin called Jack Russell's Ridge.
Claudio Meira purchased this Chalet in 2008
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.

Great place! We'll be back.
And relaxing. Perfect winter break location. Cabin offered all the comforts of home and more. Owners provided very detailed information. Hope to return in warmer weather.
Very nice place with beautiful surroundings
I enjoyed every minute of my stay.
Lovely quiet retreat
My daughter and I were looking for a quiet getaway retreat not too far off the beaten path which we found here.. The property is a lovely lot just far enough off the road without being too remote. The house itself was well kept and cozy. Since we stayed over Thanksgiving week, we took full advantage of the kitchen and found everything we needed to prepare our meals and spent a lot of time in the eat-in kitchen. We did a lot of snoozing and snacking! We also enjoyed taking walks with our 12 year old beagle who was in heaven. We hope we will have another opportunity to stay at the property. By the time we left, we felt we had "gotten away from
it all" and we're rejuvenated to head back to the city.
Beautiful home, very welcoming
We enjoyed our stay and will definitely book again. The house had everything we needed and more! Nice fire pit, comfortable furnishing, well stocked kitchen.
