Why Carolyn Snyder chose Berkeley Springs
For a time I was involved with Coolfont Resort that developed the Coolfont Mountainside as well as the resort. I found the area not only naturally beautiful but found those involved in the community,interesting with varied backgrounds, primarily professional, caring, kindly souls that loved nature and intellectual pursuits. The town itself is one of the top artists towns in the country and has a fun, mix of creative people and activities.
What makes this Cottage unique
Located in the woods, private yet with neighbors somewhat nearby, amenities such as hiking trails, tennis, beautiful pool and hot tub in a wooded setting, close to town, easy access where all factors in my decision to purchase.

Berkeley Springs getaway
Beautiful home in the scenic woods...great for both adults and kids!
Great retreat spot!
We rented this space for a Girl Scout leader retreat and year plan meeting. This was the perfect location! It allowed us to all congregate together without being on top of one another. The home is beautiful and he location even more so!
Great house in a nice pot
House was lovely and as described. You can see nearby houses but we never actually heard or saw anybody else. We stayed here with 4 adults and 4 little kids and it was not super spacious but quite comfortable. The pool in the property is beautiful and surrounded by trees. We cooked, hung out on the deck, and played games. I'd recommend it as a home base for Berkeley Springs. Communication with host was clear and easy.
Thank you for taking your time and for reviewing Treetop Cottage. We appreciate knowing you enjoyed your stay and found the property comfortable and attractive.
We too appreciate the lovely pool and wooded setting and as you mention it is a good home base for Berkeley Springs and also nearby Cacapon State Park. We find the area peaceful and renewing and are so pleased that it was a comfortable getaway for you.
Loved every minute here — tranquil getaway in a beautiful setting!
Our group of 10 just had a great time at the amazingly cozy and comfy TreeTop Cottage for a long weekend in March 2019. This place truly was like a home away from home, with every accommodation imaginable from the utensils/cutlery/dishes/cookware in the kitchen, to all the updated appliances, to an abundance of towels/linens/throws throughout the house, to the wonderful art & decor & books everywhere, and just tons of space and seating in and out. The house was very clean and well taken care of. Everything just like the photos — even better. While it was still chilly outside during our stay, we never utilized the wood stove in the living area, but instead used the outside charcoal grill on the deck not only for cooking, but it also made a great fire pit for burning wood to sit around and enjoy. Not everyone in our group could stay both nights, yet the cottage easily sleeps 10. And there is so much space inside and on the huge deck and the enclosed porch adjacent to that and the kitchen, that you never feel on top of each other. And when you are together, with the great open space in the living area that looks up to the second level where the other 2 bedrooms and other full bath is, that it’s easy to still feel part of the group even when doing your own thing. We cooked every meal there and the kitchen simply had everything we needed — and more. Can’t say enough about what a great place this is, and what a nice and accommodating host the owner is too. She sent us not only info on the place, but also on the local trails and happenings in Berkeley Springs that weekend. She also said we could come earlier than check-in and stay later than check-out since there wasn’t an overlap in rental days. Wish we could have taken her up on that offer! Thank you Carolyn for that, and for adding so many special touches to your cottage that truly reflect your care to detail and to making sure even the shortest stay is a memorable one. We hope to return and stay longer next time.

Private 4 bedroom spacious cottage house, with 2 full bathrooms, and wooded mountainside view
My 7 friends and I stayed at the Treetop Cottage last weekend. As stated in many other reviews, Carolyn is an excellent host and provided me with all the information I needed about the place ahead of time, including the lock code, directions to the place, and events going on that weekend in the area. The house was VERY clean, with tons of extra blankets and towels provided in all 4 bedrooms, a stash of wood ready to be burned in the wood burner, lots of silverware and plates (you will never run out!), dish soap, paper towels, games, puzzles, some DVD's, toliet paper, etc. Perhaps the most impressive thing here is the collection of books all throughout the house, including a few in the bedrooms, and lamps located strategically for optimal reading lighting. The view is very nice of the mountainside forest, and had it not been winter, we probably would have spent more time on the nice wrap around deck!
The kitchen was a little small, but it really doesn't matter because the living room/dining room is a large open area where you can spend most of your time.
My husband wanted me to mention that the wood burner could use a new liner (we have a pellet stove at our home and he just had to replace the liner, so he would take more notice to that sort of thing haha). We were still able to use the wood burner though, loved it!
Beds are very comfortable, lots of closet space and extra space in dressers if you were staying a week and wanted to unpack.
Beautiful place, and we all agreed we would definitely stay here again!!
Charming, wonder-land, a perfect wooded escape.
The owner was fantastic, accommodating and provided for a fabulous stay.
Thanks so much for taking the time to review Treetop Cottage.
We are so glad to know you enjoyed your stay.
Berkeley Springs is one of the best known arts towns in the Mid-Atlantic. Many practitioners of both the healing arts and visual arts have been attracted to the area for several centuries. It is a town of galleries, good food and a variety of 'alternative' and holistic therapists. Coolfont is a quiet, rustic retreat just a couple of miles outside of Berkeley Springs--the roads and cottages were designed in complete harmony with the landscape, maximizing both beauty and privacy. Cacapon State Park abuts the property and features a Robert Trent Jones golf course, fishing, hiking and a great Mission Style Lodge.
Other Activities: Cacapon State Park, C&O Canal, White Tail Ski Resort
