Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath With Mountain Views

Many Native Americans believed the bear's long sleep brought visions of truth and healing. The Bear has come to symbolize a great source of wisdom through relaxation, looking inward, and giving attention to one's dreams. After their time of rest, bears emerge with a new strength and vigor for life, much like the growing earth itself. At Bear Garden Retreat you can enjoy relaxation as a source of healing and renewal. We hope this retreat with it's impressive views leaves you feeling restored and revived.

Bear Garden Retreat is the perfect getaway for people who want to enjoy the rustic beauty of a log cabin as well as the luxury of modern amenities. The cabin is great for families looking for a relaxing escape, couples searching for a romantic retreat, or even for a group of friends who want to get away from it all. Bear Garden features lovely log furniture as well as beautiful and original art work. The kitchen is fully equipped to accommodate any chef. The cabin has many luxury features with a rustic feel throughout.

Bear Garden features three lovely bedrooms, a spacious screened-in porch, and a large hot tub. You can sit back and relax on the screen porch, or soak your worries away in the state-of-the-art hot tub. Every effort has been made to make sure our guests have a relaxing and rejuvenating escape. Bear Garden Retreat is private enough to have the full “cabin in the country” experience, but close enough to feel safe and secure in the woods. Only minutes away from The Cacapon State Park, and less than seven miles from downtown Berkeley Springs, you’ll never run out of fun things to do. If you’re looking for an upscale retreat in the woods, then Bear Garden is the perfect place for you!

About Karen King

We have moved and now live in Berkeley Springs. It has been a dream of mine to offer beautiful luxury cabins at a reasonable price. My attention to detail and standard of excellence set Cacapon Cabins apart from the rest. This is my business and I will always go the extra mile for my guests. I am here to assist you in making your stay enjoyable. Please ask about year round specials and in cabin services that are available.

As an artist, the mountains have provided a great amount of creativity. Bear Garden features many of my own original artwork. Aesthetics are important to me and provide a relaxing environment.

Cooking is one of my favorite things to do for my family and friends. I've stocked Bear Gardens kitchen with two full sets of China. Reed and Barton flatware. Plenty of Crystal glassware, pots, pans and utencils. Everything you need to set a beautiful table and cook a memorable meal.

Karen King purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Karen King chose West Virginia

Our love of the mountains and hiking brought us to Berkeley Springs. Berkeley Springs is one of USA Todays Top 10 Best Southern Small Town 2015. It is a Art filled town with it's own unique character and energy. There are plenty of fun things to do in town. Berkeley Springs State Park offers a Spa and Roman bath area. Or you can just wade in any time of year for free. Bring your water bottles and fill up fresh Spring water! Stroll the downtown for antiques, art or dine at the many fine restaurants.

Bear Garden Retreat is South on 522 near Cacapon State Park. We enjoy hiking, kayaking, swimming, fishing, golfing, horseback riding and shooting at the range. The scenic Overlook is not to be missed. Cacapon State Park offers many free family activities year round.

Hancock MD is near by and there is access to the C&O and Northern and Western Rail Trail. Both are excellent to ride. One highlight is the Paw Paw tunnel.

Bear Garden Retreat sits at an elevation of 800 feet above sea level. We are at the end of a quiet lane surrounded by oak forest. We have seasonal long range views. You can stroll up and down the lane without any traffic. Our neighbors are friendly and few. Bear Garden Retreat is a gift and we are happy to share it with others. We hope you enjoy your retreat and come again.

Great family retreat from DC!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Bear Garden. The top floor was great for our toddler to walk around & explore. The kitchen was very nice and well laid out. Easy access to Berkeley Springs and Cacapon State Park, but we mostly just hung out around the house!

We had been here two years ago and the moment we walked in the door, we knew why we had returned.

  • 5 of 5

This home was WONDERFUL. We enjoyed everything about it. We were a bit concerned because we had never rented a pet friendly home. You would not know(except for the cage) that there are pets in this rental. It is spacious for 5 adults and one very cute little baby!

The kitchen had everything you could possibly imagine for cooking, baking,.We made most of our meals here and enjoyed the in the outdoors of your screened in porch.

This home is decorated so nicely with many lovely prints and decorations throughout.

Karen is a fantastic host and got back to us immediately with the few questions we had. The only down side of our stay at Bear Garden Retreat was having to leave. But...we left with many specials memories.

Incredible place!

  • 5 of 5

I've rented many times with VRBO and this was by far, one of the best places we've stayed. Immaculately clean, beautifully decorated. Karen was easy to work with, very accommodating and unbelievably thoughtful! A gift bag?! That's a first! Clearly they take pride in this cabin. She thought of everything. From the comfy beds, well stocked kitchen and tons of books, games and dvds, we enjoyed every minute here. Did I mention the well maintained hot tub? Hope we can return. Thanks so much!

My original and other artists work are proudly displayed throughout the cabin. Nothing quite like decompressing in the Hot Tub with all its jets, lights and waterfall feature! Please do come back and receive a return guest rate. Best Always, Karen

Great Girls' Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My 2 girlfiends and I spent our 26th annual trip to Berkeley Springs at the Bear Garden Retreat and it was perfect. The home was very clean and had everything the three of us required for a much needed weekend at the spas. The screened porch was the perfect place for a bottle of wine and games and each of the bedrooms was a great size with comfortable beds! The owner also provides some basic necessities which makes packing easier. Thanks so much to Karen King for sharing her home with us. We will return!!
