A Little Place in WV has everything you need for a quiet getaway stay. Beautifully sited on a secluded 5 acre wooded lot the hilltop location offers a graceful view across gently rolling hills to Cacapon Mountain in the near distance. Fog often divides the peaks and valleys in the early morning. Sun, moon, and stars rise to greet you, warming your morning or silvering your night. This cabin is a great place for a romantic getaway or an intimate weekend with your family. Secluded and completely surrounded by woods the site provides privacy in an open outdoor setting. Small groups of friends will enjoy the chance to hangout and visit in a beautiful setting--quiet, secluded and peaceful. The deck and one balcony look east to Cacapon Mountain with rolling hills between. A second balcony looks straight into the trees. The two bedroom cabin sleeps six comfortably. Recently renovated, the charming mix of colors, furnishings and natural light provide a warm cozy atmosphere. A gas fireplace will take the chill off an autumn evening and add an intimate feel to the living room. There are three TVs and DVD players, satellite TV, and a library of DVDs to keep you entertained. The cabin has free WiFi to keep you connected. The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave, pots and pans, dishes and glasses. There is a washer and dryer in the basement. You can enjoy your meals inside or on the deck with views across the valley. The master bedroom suite has a queen size bed and sitting area. There are two balconies with wonderful cross breezes. The cabin has central air but you probably won't need it. The second bedroom has a double bunk bed. There is a futon in the basement den. Plenty of sheets and towels are available.

About Sam Austell
I am in my mid-60s. I love walking outdoors and in recent years I have hiked in the Anapurna region in Nepal, been to Machu Pichu in Peru and most recently traveled the Colorado River for 21 days by rubber raft through the Grand Canyon. I own a small business in Baltimore and love visiting A Little Place in WV.
Sam Austell purchased this Cabin in 2009
Why Sam Austell chose Great Cacapon
Several years ago my wife and I accidentally passed through Berkeley Springs. We had lunch at Tari's, looked around and decided to come back. We made several weekend trips staying in cabins in the area. We got lucky and found our cabin one very dreary but enchanting day in November. It was well built and had a wonderful view. But it was a mess. Nothing that a little bit of destruction and then construction couldn't take care of. I love a project. I hope you will enjoy the serenity and beauty of A Little Place in WV.

Pleasant woodland escape.
This is a great place, tucked away in the woods but with a distant view of hills too. Beautifully appointed (great kitchenware for instance) and with managers just up the road if you happen to write down the entry details wrong! We would definitely return.
Thanks for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We love the cabin too. Sam
Property was very nice and secluded
We enjoyed our stay and riding around the country side. It was very quiet and restful.
I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. We love the cabin and the peace and quiet too. It's a great place to get away. Thanks for staying with us.
Home away from home
We love coming here. It's very quiet, cozy, well-maintained, and supplied with all that we need.
My husband and I had a very enjoyable stay- the remote setting was quiet and peaceful and provided the respite we were looking for. Fall was a beautiful time of year to come and the view from the house was breathtaking, along with providing some wonderful star gazing opportunities. The house was cozy, clean and well kept, and well stocked with all the essentials.
Great place away from it all. Very clean, super kitchen, gorgeous view. Was a relaxing experience. We'd come back.
Great place to unwind and spend time with friends
This was my second time at this property. The owner is great to work with if you need any help. The place is a very nice cabin with a great deck and an awesome view. Great place to spend time with friends and unwind.
I am glad to hear you had a good time at our cabin. We love the view too and miss it when we can't get up for a visit. Thanks for becoming one of our REGULARS. See you again soon. Sam
Berkeley Springs and the surrounding area are a mecca for visitors in the mid-Atlantic. Voted one of the top ten small art communities, there are galleries and The Ice House Community Art Center with live performances. There are two large antique stores and a number of small ones in town for those surprising finds. There are a number of restaurants in a range of styles and prices. Our favorites are Tari's and Panarama at the Peak. The Creamery for a quick sandwich and the Country Inn for a fine breakfast should be on your list. There are a couple of spas in town for the full range of pamper yourself delights. Our choice is the Atasia Spa. We have taken many wonderful walks in the area. The C&O canal is accessible at Paw Paw and Hancock. There is a beautiful trail from the parking lot at the Cacapon State Park scenic overlook. Its easy too. The Star Theatre shows recent movies Friday, Saturday and Sunday and has the best popcorn in three states made in a classic antique popcorn machine. Tari's, the Fairfax Coffee House and Earth Dog Cafe usually have live music one night a week. By the way you will get great coffee at the coffee house and the barbeque at Earth Dog is terrific. There are near-by Civil War sites at Gettysburg, Antietam and Sharpsburg. Skiing is at Whitetail. If you like the ponies the head on over to Charlestown. Then there is the cabin. A Little Place in WV is a lovely, peaceful place to just enjoy being alive. Let the sun warm you in the morning or the breeze cool you in the afternoon while reading a book on the deck. Three TVs, satellite and a library of DVDs are available for your enjoyment. Free WiFi is on site to keep up with the other world while you enjoy the real world. There are old fashion board games, remember them. If there is a chill in the air, the gas fireplace will warm you with its romantic glow. There is also a fire pit outside.
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
Part of the beauty of our cabin is that is a mile and a half down a dirt road. For that reason we do not rent the cabin January thru part of March. We welcome guests in late November and December. Should you feel uncomfortable with foul weather predictions please call me to discuss the situation. We want you to be comfortable and will be happy to give a full refund should winter weather threaten.
