About Sam Austell
I am now 70 years old but not retired. 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.
What makes this Cabin unique
When I step into the cabin at the beginning of a visit I feel a lightness, a release from all that goes on in a busy life. There is a peace that has room for intimate conversations with friends or just space to sit and wander in your thoughts. The cabin is not a busy place. It is an un-busy place to greet the sunrise, to nap on the deck in the afternoon, to watch the shadow of sunset march up the mountain, and to marvel at the stars. I hope you find some of this loveliness when you visit.

This cute cabin with beautiful views is all you need! The cabin was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. We had our three young boys with us who enjoyed exploring the property finding pine cones and acorns and fun shaped sticks.
Thank you Sam for sharing your place!!!
Gorgeous view & wonderful DVD collection
We enjoyed a relaxing weekend here and really enjoyed the DVD collection. (We hadn't planned to watch movies, but the choices were so plentiful!) We loved the quiet and the view.
The view from the living room and bedroom was beautiful. The setting was secluded and overall very peaceful. We were pleased with the cleanliness of the property and the well-equipped kitchen.
We love this property. It was our 3rd visit and we had a wonderful quite, relaxing time. Our favorite place to go! Thank you Sam for sharing this amazing spot on the mountain.
I am glad you all had a wonderful time. I agree it is an amazing place. We love it too. We hope to have you back soon.
Refreshing cabin retreat
My family and I had a very nice time here. It was wonderfully quiet and peaceful. We had great fun exploring the area's outdoor activities. We'd recommend to others.
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.
