About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Wonderful wooded riverfront property, family vacation home. Enjoying time spent with your family in a beautiful natural setting is a great way to make memories.

Longer rental periods (2 weeks or more) are also available. Rates for long tenancies will be heavily discounted.

Four bedroom, cedar-sided home on the Cacapon River, just 12 scenic miles from Berkeley Springs. The home is surrounded by black walnut trees and sits on six acres with mountain views and 288 feet of private riverfront.

The house will accommodate 8 people comfortably in 4 bedrooms --

3 bedrooms upstairs and 1 bedroom on first floor. The 4 bedrooms contain: 1 king, 2 queens, and 2 extra long twins. The upstairs bathroom includes a shower and a garden tub. The downstairs bathroom has a shower.

There is a fully equipped kitchen and laundry room. The family room has a gas fireplace and scenic views from the picture window. The screened-in porch and deck overlook the woods.

The Cacapon River is a beautiful, clear water river offering good fishing, tubing, canoeing, and kayaking. You can fish from our shoreline. There is also a community park located near our home. It offers a small rocky beach for swimming, fishing, and launching canoes, tubes, and kayaks. The park also provides bath houses/changing areas, grills, and picnic tables.

The main game fish is the smallmouth bass, but the Cacapon also contains largemouth bass, catfish, and panfish.

The house was built on the site of the original homestead. The stone foundation of the original house has been preserved and is an interesting place to explore or to just sit and enjoy nature. The area around the house contains many black walnut trees. If you're staying during September or October, feel free to gather as many walnuts as you like. They are delicious in baked goods.

We have tried to preserve as much of the property as possible in its natural state. Wildlife is abundant.

If you are looking for a place to get away from it all and relax without being too far from civilization, you can't do better than this property. The house is wonderfully designed and equipped, and the owners provide lots of extras, including feed for the numerous deer and birds which visit the property regularly - we had 18 deer in our front yard one evening, and by the end of the week they were eating out of our hands. The screened in porch was a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the sounds of nature, which included bullfrogs in a pond next door and lots of woodpeckers. The drive into the property along the Cacapon River is very pretty, and should be gorgeous in the fall. We definitely want to return to this house!

The perfect girls' weekend

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed by the professionalism and response time by the owner. She made it so easy to plan and stay at this wonderful home for the weekend. It was extremely well kept, everything was clean, and the view of the lake in the back is beautiful. We'll be going back!

loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure staying at Walnut Hill. The house is great,and everything was as promised. The kids loved the time floating down the river. They all caught fish at the neighborhood river access area. Once we came back from the river, they played wiffle ball in the large front yard. The house has everything you could ask for. No complaints at all. It was enjoyable to work with the home owners. We want to come back in the Fall to see all the changing colors.

Great gathering place!

  • 5 of 5

The first thing our group of "old" college friend's noticed upon entering the property was how clean the whole house was. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The screened in porch, which is not pictured, was incredible. We spent most of our time out there looking at all the greenery. The neighborhood is hilly, but very walkable. Town is about 12 miles away and has lots of shops and eateries. The house is well equipped with cleaning supplies. We highly recommend this property!

Best Week EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded all of our expectations. I will say that the pictures do not do it justice!! This property is heavenly. Everything in the house was just as promised. It was comfortable, quite, and relaxing. We enjoyed walking down to the river every morning and doing some fishing and the kids enjoyed the park for swimming. We loved sitting on the back porch while drinking our morning coffee. The sounds and the scenery are breathtaking. Over this entire process of finding this property through our stay, it was an absolute delight working with Duane and Joyce. We hope to be back soon. If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind, this is by far, your best bet. You will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Jeremy, we are delighted that you had such a good time at Walnut Hill. We hope you will have the opportunity to visit as often as you can. Another family has been coming to Walnut Hill for almost 10 years, first visiting when their children were 12 and 10. Now, their married son and his wife spend time there, too. It's been fun watching the children grow, and seeing how much the family has enjoyed the property over the years!

Great layout

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our winter stay at this spotless, well-appointed home. It's a bit of a drive from town, and our journey was made a little longer by flooding of the lower road in, but the roads are scenic and fun to drive. The downstairs bedroom and bath make it appropriate for families with older adults or anyone who doesn't like stairs. Beds are comfortable and kitchen has everything you could need, including basic foodstuffs. We were a bit disappointed by the small gas fireplace--it really doesn't add much to the ambiance... but in nicer weather, you'll be outside on the deck or the screen porch all the time anyway. I would say this is a better spot for a warm-weather stay; there would be much more to do right there. The owner was very helpful and stayed in close contact with us through the entire process. Great price for a comfortable spot.
