Welcome to Lancaster's Lair! Our mountain-view chalet is located in the award-winning Cacapon South community, less than 10 miles from downtown Berkeley Springs. With four bedrooms and three baths, this custom built three-story chalet will accommodate eight guests in comfort. Whether you are looking for the ideal 'home away from home' for an extended family vacation or the perfect setting for a fun and relaxing weekend getaway with friends, Lancaster's Lair is a terrific choice.

The chalet boasts plenty of modern amenities. Relax in front of the oversized stone wood-burning fireplace while enjoying your cable programming on a 42-inch flat screen television. We also have wireless internet service and central heat and air for your convenience. For fun, enjoy the ping-pong table or the additional 55-inch flat screen television and DVD player in the recreation room. If the outdoors call, gather on the covered porch which wraps around to an expansive deck.

Meals are easy to prepare in the chalet's full kitchen, complete with dishwasher, microwave, and cooking utensils, or you may choose to use the outdoor grill for barbecuing. If you do not want to prepare your meal, the lodge is nearby for a buffet breakfast, quick lunch, or a relaxing dinner. Or treat yourself to a fabulous meal at one of the many superb restaurants in town-- we're happy to offer suggestions!

Lancaster's Lair is within walking distance of a Robert Trent Jones Sr. golf course as well as the local lake for swimming, fishing, and boating. A game of tennis or basketball is also close by, as is horseback riding. Scenic nature trails for hiking wind throughout the area, and in the winter months, downhill and cross-country skiing and snow tubing are nearby.

The town of Berkeley Springs offers a delightful blend of mineral spas, art, and antiques. Civil War battlefields, the C&O Canal, Paw Paw Tunnel, Berkeley Spring State Park, Cacapon Resort State Park, and Coolfont Resort are also close, giving you plenty of sightseeing opportunities. Special events throughout the year include the Apple Butter Festival and the Festival of the Waters.

                                                              The house was great and worked really well for us

                                                              Emily L.Washington, District of Columbia

                                                              The House was great. It was very well stocked. Plenty of cooking supplies and dishes. Having 3 TVs was helpful. The kids could hang out downstairs. Loved having a working fireplace. Being across from the park would be great in the summer and we were only about 10 miles from the center of town. We will absolutely consider renting the house again.

                                                              Great weekend nice area but.....

                                                              Nice location. House not what expected, very crowded for 8 adults. Fourth bedroom more like a closet, no water pressure upstairs at all for shower,and entire house could use a good cleaning top to bottom.Very steep and narrow steps both outside and indoors,pretty scary.

                                                              Owner's Response:


                                                              Thanks for taking your time to review Lancaster's Lair. We are glad you enjoyed our location, just across from Cacapon State Park. We are sorry you found the house crowded, with two living areas and the open concept upstairs, most families find plenty of space. We do realize that water pressure can vary from time to time in the rural location with a well-water system. We do remind guests to use water gently to keep the water supply, but have not had others unhappy with the water pressure. We also pride ourselves on keeping the house clean for our guests so we have reviewed the cleaning protocol with our housekeeping staff to ensure guests are satisfied in the future. I only wish you had let us know your dissatisfaction while you were there-- we would have been happy to send someone to rectify any deficits!



                                                              Beautiful, comfortable and spacious!

                                                              Andrea K.Rising Sun

                                                              We so enjoyed staying at Lancasters Liar. The house is very spacious and accommodating. The wrap around deck gives you beautiful views. The neighborhood that it is in is peaceful and quiet and very private. Thank you we hope to return in the future.

                                                              Nice but needs some upkeep

                                                              James R.

                                                              The vacation rental was in a beautiful location, but the actual home definitely wasn't the best as far as upkeep. First, many of the light bulbs needed replaced in the living room track lighting. This made it difficult to see at night. Secondly, the beds were so uncomfortable that sleeping was difficult. Additionally, there was a cleaning fee, but it was quite obvious that the previous cleaning was lacking as there were dead flies lying on the floor in one of the bedrooms. Lastly, the outdoor HVAC was very noisy each time it kicked on. It needs some attention. Next time I visit Berkley springs, I'll pay a little bit more money and stay in more of a premium home.

                                                              Nice home in a beautiful location

                                                              The house was nice and well stocked for two families with two kids each. The owner was responsive and helpful.

                                                              Awesome House in a cool location.

                                                              We stayed at this house in January 2017. The house was clean, had plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, plus has two spacious living rooms. I would highly recommend this house to anybody looking to be near Berkeley Springs, WV.
