Carolyn Snyder purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Carolyn Snyder chose Berkeley Springs
For a time I was involved with Coolfont Resort that developed the Coolfont Mountainside as well as the resort. I found the area not only naturally beautiful but found those involved in the community,interesting with varied backgrounds, primarily professional, caring, kindly souls that loved nature and intellectual pursuits. The town itself is one of the top artists towns in the country and has a fun, mix of creative people and activities.
What makes this Cottage unique
Located in the woods, private yet with neighbors somewhat nearby, amenities such as hiking trails, tennis, beautiful pool and hot tub in a wooded setting, close to town, easy access where all factors in my decision to purchase.

Unfortunately this is one of those places that just looks better in the pictures. The house is a little worse for the wear and was just kind of dirty. The items in the kitchen could use updating (knives were so unsharp that they were almost dangerous to use) or at least a note should be added to the description to bring everything you'll need on your own. The kitchen is also pretty tiny for any more than two people to be in at one time. The host was friendly and easy to deal with, but overall, I think the rental price should be lowered so that expectations would be better in alignment with the realities of this house.
So sorry to hear this. We appreciate you taking the time to share with us in order that we can improve and do better.
We work very hard on keeping the house spotless. Generally all the comments reflect how clean the house is; we pride ourselves on this. Certainly I will be talking to our cleaning gals that pride themselves on doing a good job.
We will certainly check on the knives in the kitchen and any other items to see if they need attention. Again usually our reports from guests come back that the kitchen is fully stocked with all the dishes and items needed.
We always want our guests to enjoy their stay and we always want to keep the house up to snuff.
We do feel that our $250 a night rate that includes all linens, towels, wood for the wood stove, fully furnished 4 bedroom contemporary that generally houses 8-10 people is a bargain.
I really can't respond much more, as the stay occurred over a month ago and this is the first time I have heard that this guest was dissatisfied.
Beautiful Weekend Getaway with everything you need!!
This was perfect, just what we needed. The home was perfect for 4 couples (8 people). The kitchen had all utensils, pots and pans needed! The dining area was perfect for large meals we cooked. The living room areas has 3 huge couches surrounding the indoor fireplace! Wood, firestarter and matches are provided for you, which is perfect! Huge deck which would be perfect for the summer! We went tubing at white tail skinresort which is about 40 min away. We had no complaints about renting this home, will do it again next time! The homeowners are easily accessible, they replied immediately about any questions. Thank You for making our trip great!!

Private, quiet retreat
The house was perfect for our girls weekend. Enough beds for everyone and was stocked with everything we needed. We would definitely rent this home again!
Quiet weekend away with old friends
The property was just like the pictures. It was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. A very easy and short drive to the center of town. We loved the back deck and porch. It was a very relaxing and wonderful weekend, would love to return

Very cozy and well equipped home. The house felt festive and warm and the host most accommodating.
Great property for groups up to ten. It did not feel cramped even with the Christmas tree the hosts had setup. Sceeened porch and deck will make for great enjoyment spring through fall. All was in good repair. It even has high chair for any babies, and lots of beds for a multi family group like ours.
Huge number of plates and silverware for serving a large crowd around the large table or on the deck. The sofas and chairs were so comfortable you won’t want to leave.
A great wood stove is very toasty, a bit smoky until burning well. Plenty of firewood.
The hiking at state park 7 miles away is varied for all levels, and relaxing.
This is a perfect getaway from DC or Baltimore. Berkeley Springs is so close and offers much to do.
Thanks to the very helpfull and responsive host.
