About Jenifer Bouchard

Great place to relax and forget about life for awhile. We fell in love with this house and had to buy it. Its been an incredible place to bring our 4 children and their friends for mini weekend trips and vacations. It is 100 yards from an awesome river called the Cacapon and absolutely filled with fish and other wildlife. From bird watchers to wildlife photographers to plain old hikers and canoeists you are absolutely guaranteed to find plenty to do. If you just desire to cuddle up next to the huge fire places and read a book, or fall in love all over again, you can so have that chance. We decided to start renting this to allow others to enjoy some of that spectacular relaxation time that heals the body and soul.

Jenifer Bouchard purchased this chateau / country house in 2001

Why Jenifer Bouchard chose West Virginia

We chose this location because it was with in 2 hours drive from home. It has river access, great fishing and canoeing.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We enjoy the quietness of being in the mountains and the activities that the river has to offer. Only minutes from the great little town of Berkeley Spring and Coolfont resorts where you can enjoy some very nice restaurants and shops.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I would recommend this place to anyone who loves to star gaze, it is amazing. The house is very well cared for with plenty of space.

The back patio and fireplace was one of the best features.

Just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

Had a group of guys looking to get away for the weekend. The house was exactly what we had hoped for. The water was fine and the house was in good condition with a well stocked kitchen (we cook a lot) and nice outdoor/indoor rec areas. Certainly no foul smells, etc. The owner seemed to be a normal, responsive person. Rent with confidence.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

OMG this was the perfect get away! The house was great for a girls weekend away. We had all that we needed, the space was just perfect. We loved the outdoor patio and the deck was so nice in the morning drinking coffee.

I am so glad I chose this house. I saw the 2 reviews on the water but it was fine, no problems. I understood it was well water but it was not a concern at all. So much to offer for a weekend away.

fun times

  • 5 of 5

had a blast with friends from the past. Perfect location close to PA and Maryland.

The house was great, I saw a review that the furniture was old, that is not the case. The furniture is great and in very good repair. We love the outdoor space and there was plenty of fire wood.

If you are looking for a relaxing getaway this is the place.

Good Spot to Get Away

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time staying here for a weekend hang out with some friends. The house had everything we needed, the kitchen was well stocked, and the house was clean. The outdoor patio area is great (best feature of the house) and the adjacent properties are out of view, so plenty of privacy. No cell service, but the Wi-Fi worked well. As mentioned in other reviews, the water does have an odor from the mineral deposits, but it is really not that bad. The Owner is very responsive and we had no issues with rental process. Stay here if you are looking for a nice property that is well maintained and offers good exterior patio/deck space for enjoying the outdoors.
