About the property

Log Cabin in peaceful setting. 4 BR, 3 FBA, (Sleeps 8), Rec Room, Wi-Fi, etc.

The Ridge View Chalet was built in 2007, comes fully furnished, and sits back off the beaten path, not in a busy development, but in amongst the quite natural beauty of the area and the wispy pine trees. It is centrally and very conveniently located between Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania and is less then two hours to nearby Baltimore and Washington, DC.

This true Log Cabin, has 3 fully finished levels, with 4 bedrooms and 3 Full Baths, can accommodate up to 8 guests, is located within 5 minutes of Cacapon State Park, which offers an 18-hole Robert Trent Jones golf course, more than 20 miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, swimming, fishing, picnic areas, basketball courts, tennis, and a restaurant and recreation center.

The Chalet is also minutes from the historic town of Bath/Berkeley Springs, where you can partake in its natural mineral baths, local art, antiques and the Berkeley Springs State Park. Nearby, the resorts of Coolfont and The Woods provide many amenities, such as spas, fitness center/gym, indoor swimming, entertainment, sledding, and restaurants.

For ski and snowboard/tube lovers, the chalet is just a 30-35 minute drive to White Tail Ski Resort and other ski/snow tubing locations. Other popular sights and activities include the C&O Canal Park and Trail, Rails to Trails, the Paw Paw Tunnel, Cacapon and Potomac River float trips, Civil War Battlefields, and historic Harper's Ferry.

The large A-frame style Log Cabin offers three levels of beautiful surroundings and views, with numerous large sun filled windows, and custom/mood lighting at every turn. The top level has a spacious Loft with Balcony, desk with Netbook computer, 2 Bedrooms (1 Queen and 2 Twin), and Full Bath.

Steve purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Steve chose West Virginia

The Ridge View Chalet is in the back, more hilly area, of a small private community in a peaceful, slower paced setting away from it all. Traveling to the Berkeley Springs area from any direction is very scenic and is typically a breeze, away from the fast paced hustle and bustle of the city and other stressful "work" environments. Centrally located off of Route 522 and a short distance to Route 70/68, this cabin is a perfect meeting spot for families and "old friend" get togethers. The town of Berkeley Springs has so many neat, "quirky" shops along with the warm springs, park and spas you will just love to tour.

What makes this cabin unique

Relax in our living/dining room, porches, deck, lower level rec room that will seem to sweep all your work, school and all your other worries away. Look up enjoy the beautiful star lit night sky at night. We have hopefully thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable, from the pool/ping pong table, modern bathrooms, flat screen TV, books, videos, DVDs, and games, down to the fully stocked modern kitchen.

Amazing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend! The weather was perfect, the house was amazing, and time with family made for a very special time. This cabin/chalet is located perfectly between downtown Berkeley Springs and Cacapon State Park. On Saturday, we spend much of the day downtown and then went by the cabin. Next, we were on our way for Ridge Trail in the park which was an amazing hike. The cabin was very clean and the owner had thought through anything and everything that one might need for a stay. It is furnished beautifully and the linens were very nice. Thank you for a wonderful place to call "home" for the weekend!

We loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The layout of the house was perfect! Each floor had its own sitting area which was great if you wanted some quiet time. The upstairs level had 2 bedrooms, a full bath, and a separate loft sitting area with couch, chair, desk, computer, and a door which led out to an upper deck. The beds were comfortable and I slept through the night which does not usually happen at home. The closets had additional blankets and pillows. The main level included the king bedroom, full bath, kitchen, laundry room, coat closet, shelves with games/books/cards, living room with TV, and dining room. Internet is provided and worked well. My Verizon cell service worked well. The kitchen was fully stocked and we were never in need of anything. In fact, I brought along a hand mixer and mine was broke and the one in the house worked so I thought that was kind of funny. The deck on the main level was amazing! It wraps around to the back so some of the family sat on the back deck which had a table for 4 and would be great for games/cards, some sat on the side deck which had a table with sun umbrella and was great for watching the family members below making s’mores in the fire pit. The front deck had a couple of chairs but we mostly used the front to store our coolers. The deck stayed clean (no leaves/bugs) when we were there. Great outside lighting. The driveway is lighted if you come in the dark. We brought additional chairs to place around the fire pit but did not end up using them because the fire pit benches that are there were comfortable. Thank you Steve for providing firewood as that was a nice treat. The basement level has a bedroom, full bath, and a separate living area with couches, TV, gaming system, round table with chairs (for games/cards), pool & ping pong table. We were here 3 nights in the summer so most of us were gone during the day and we didn’t end up using the basement activities but had we stayed longer I am sure we would have had a great ping pong competition going! I have stayed at other homes in this area and this one was by far the best! Thanks Steve!

Perfect for our get together

  • 4 of 5

The "cabin" was an excellent choice for us three couples to have a relaxing weekend of talking and eating and catching up. Each couple had their own bedroom and bath and privacy, while the kitchen and common area was big enough for us all to spend our time together.

perfect peaceful getaway!

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean and perfect for a girls weekend. We loved using the fireplace since it was very cold outside. The living room furniture was comfy and new and we loved all of the accent lighting throughout. I think the only complaint was regarding the mattresses. They were a little hard compared to what everyone was used to.

I think the house would be hard to access if there was a recent snow as you really go up and down some big hills, but I guess that is what you get in West Virginia.

We would ABSOLUTELY consider staying here again next time we come to Berkeley Springs!

Trip With Friends

  • 5 of 5

One of the hardest things to find when looking for a cabin is the proper balance between seclusion and comforts. I feel this cabin has both!

Tucked away on a private road and surrounded by trees, you won't find many cabins that are this far away from your neighbors. Which is excellent for hanging out by the fire pit, knowing that you aren't disturbing your neighbors, and they won't disturb you.

The house has all the comforts you will need: decent enough wi-fi, TV with satellite, a nice grill, big kitchen etc. Where this cabin takes the cake from others I have stayed at is excellent basement. The basement contains a Super Nintendo with an excellent selection of games. More importantly, the basement houses a ping-pong/pool table. My friends and I enjoyed hours of ping-pong.

The host was great and very quick with replies. If you are looking to enjoy a weekend or more in Berkeley Springs I highly recommend this cabin.
