Why Joe chose Bloomery
This rental offers more for your money than any other similar priced option. Unlike other properties, this property offers renters a chance to camp in the relative comfort of a rustic river cabin plus over 200 acres of adjoining rural mountain land, trails, scenic views, a river, a pond, and a creek. In the winter, warm yourself by the wood stove. In the summer kick back and relax on the fully screened in porch.
What makes this Cabin unique
The cabin is situated on a large track of land offering beautiful walks with 360 degree unobstructed views of the Allegheny Mountains and waterfront access to the Cacapon River, which is one of the best kept scenic secrets of the Mid-Atlantic region. For paddlers, there are great float trips for both canoes and kayaks to the cabin from local state put-ins. Further, if you enjoy fishing, the river offers anglers a great opportunity to test their skills. The property also boasts a large catfish pond and rifle range. There are also ample trails for hiking, walking, or mountain biking. Don't forget to enjoy the wildlife. Nature abounds and Bald Eagles, Black Bears, and Whitetail Deer are often seen. The plant life is equally diverse with species rarely scene outside of the unique river valley ecosystem.

Utterly Fantastic Property
First off, Joe was responsive and accomidating. The cabin is nestled in the middle of a fairly remote plot of land. The property was beautiful! It was too cold to take advantage of the river 20 feet from the cabin, but we stayed warm by the fire. The cabin is rustic, but clean and well built. There were no creepy crawlies around the interior. We brought a propane smoker and smoked some brisket outside on the first day for the next days dinner. It was a fantastic weekend. If you hit Omps Grocery on the way in, you can get a couple cords of firewood for a reasonable price. Great people there. Note that there was no cell service with AT&T, so be prepared to put your electronics away for the weekend. We will definitely be back.
Great place to get in the woods an do some fishing / shooting
Basic primitive cabin on a nice plot of land. 4x4 vehicle with some ground clearance is definitely required, especially with the spring mud. Joe has a nice piece of land here, and my buddy and I had a blast. Watch the weather closely, we ended up in 35 degree weather. Wasn’t too bad, but a nice 60-70 degree weekend would have been ideal! Hoping to get back there sometime soon.
The closest town is PawPaw, which provides for most of your basic needs to include food and gas. Omps Grocery on Rt 127 is also a short drive away and is a general store with a post office and seasonal farm market. Nearby Berkeley Springs, WV offers a host of boutique shops, dining, and a resort built around the famous springs. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g58870-d595292-Reviews-s1-Berkeley_Springs_Spa_and_Inn-Berkeley_Springs_West_Virginia.html
