Awesome get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I (plus my dog!) stayed here over Mother's Day 2018. We had such a nice and relaxing time. We enjoyed the house thoroughly. We loved the pourches - the covered and uncovered. We were so touched you left us pretty flowers and wine for Mother's Day. We appreciated all the suggestions you gave. I had been to The Woods before with my husband but had stayed in a smaller cottage. I loved that I could bring my dog - she loved being in the mountains! We lucked out it only rained at night so we took lots of walks. We went into Berkeley Springs (I used to work at Coolfont when I was first out of college).. My mom took some fitness classes (which she enjoyed!) and we both had wonderful massages. We hiked at Cacapon State Park. I would like to come back with the kids.....hopefully summer/fall. Thank you for your gracious hositality!

Simply the Best!!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed my time here. It is a great cabin with absolutely everything provided. Courtney and jeremy were fantastic hosts and the welcome basket was truly thoughtful. They even had items in the basket for my fur babies which was sweet. The cabin is back in the woods so it is peaceful and quiet. Loved the sound of the creek in the background. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. If I ever accept another contract in the area, I hope I can stay here. Thank you so much!

Impeccable property and gracious hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Warm, inviting, private, homey but not fussy, easy, fully stocked, and beautifully maintained. A large screened porch overlooks woods with a babbling brook below. The already comfortable common area seems larger with the vaulted ceiling and various skylights. Not obvious in the photos is that one bedroom has a private bath and a television, with a sliding glass door to a semi private deck. That was like an escape within an escape, which came in handy traving with our teenage daughter. She liked it there so much she traded a shopping trip for the fireplace and a movie. The entire property was impeccable. Our hosts were eager to ensure our satisfaction and gracious. The pool and exercise facilities at The Woods were also beautifully maintained. We drove two hours for a weekend away and I would definitely do it to this property again. Another treat was an easy ride to Berkeley Springs for lunch and a stroll. Enjoy!

Wonderful retreat, only 2 hours from Washington DC

  • 5 of 5

This cottage satisfied superbly all our needs for a birthday-weekend getaway from Washington DC. The cottage was clean, spacious, comfortable and perfectly equipped, and the owners responded by email very quickly with all the necessary details. We enjoyed the free passes to the affiliated resort (The Woods) which has nice gym facilities (pool, exercise room, courts). The area offers several hiking possibilities, and we enjoyed a 2-hour hike to Devil's Nose. The best restaurant is undoubtedly Lot 12 in nearby Berkeley Springs. The closest restaurant is in the Woods resort and it was surprisingly good. Tari's in Berkeley Springs is also OK (though not great). Small footnote: Make sure you bring along bottles of drinking water, because the water out of the faucet tastes of chlorine.

A peaceful, comfortable, woodsy oasis.

  • 5 of 5

This charming cabin in The Woods resort was everything we expected, and more. The setting is quiet and lovely; the house is well stocked. The owner provided excellent communication before our visit. A thoughtful gift basket greeted us when we arrived. There is a restaurant in the resort, or prepare your own meals in the kitchen. The town of Berkeley Springs, with restaurants and shopping, is a short drive away. We used the sports center (tennis courts, fitness center) and have used the spa in the past for facials. We would definitely rent this property again!

Awesome getaway place!

  • 5 of 5

Three sisters were looking for a short getaway and our stay was even better than expected. Arrived, had lunch at the Clubhouse grill, massage and facial at the spa and a lovely relaxing stay in this awesome Cottage. And, great location too! Jeremy and Courtney was such great hosts. They worked with our schedule which was so appreciated. The house was very clean, beds were great, view amazing, fireplace was a nice addition and then the sun came out and we took a walk. Everything was great. I would recommend this cottage at The Woods!
