A Little Place in WV has everything you need for a quiet getaway stay. Beautifully sited on a secluded 5 acre wooded lot the hilltop location offers a graceful view across gently rolling hills to Cacapon Mountain in the near distance. Fog often divides the peaks and valleys in the early morning. Sun, moon, and stars rise to greet you, warming your morning or silvering your night. This cabin is a great place for a romantic getaway or an intimate weekend with your family. Secluded and completely surrounded by woods the site provides privacy in an open outdoor setting. Small groups of friends will enjoy the chance to hangout and visit in a beautiful setting--quiet, secluded and peaceful. The deck and one balcony look east to Cacapon Mountain with rolling hills between. A second balcony looks straight into the trees. The two bedroom cabin sleeps six comfortably. Recently renovated, the charming mix of colors, furnishings and natural light provide a warm cozy atmosphere. A gas fireplace will take the chill off an autumn evening and add an intimate feel to the living room. There are three TVs and DVD players, satellite TV, and a library of DVDs to keep you entertained. The cabin has free WiFi to keep you connected. The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave, pots and pans, dishes and glasses. There is a washer and dryer in the basement. You can enjoy your meals inside or on the deck with views across the valley. The master bedroom suite has a queen size bed and sitting area. There are two balconies with wonderful cross breezes. The cabin has central air but you probably won't need it. The second bedroom has a double bunk bed. There is a futon in the basement den. Plenty of sheets and towels are available.

About Sam Austell
I am in my mid-60s. 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.

Beautiful view, secluded, relaxing
My partner and I stayed in the cabin over Thanksgiving and having nothing but good things to say. The views really were stunning. The cabin is nicely secluded surrounded by trees and deer, but still close enough to the places we wanted to visit in West Virginia. We spent our break relaxing at the cabin, hiking the C&O canal trail by Paw Paw, and exploring Berkeley Springs. The cabin itself was warm and comfortable and spacious and the kitchen had all of the pots and pans we needed to cook our meals. The on site overseers were friendly and Debbie very thoughtfully took the time to call us to warn us of a storm that was coming. We weren't paying attention to the weather forecast and very much appreciated this as it helped us plan for potentially bad roads!
A romantic and memorable cabin for your special getaway
Just my wife and I were blessed to enjoy this very comfortable and well designed cabin back in the woods. It was our 36th anniversary and we could not have chosen a better place for quiet enjoyment of nature. The house is clean and well stocked with a variety of options for fun including a bigger library of DVDs than you probably have at home. Satellite TV and WIFI to keep you connected to the world, if that is your preference. The deck is great with the most outstanding views from sunrise to sunset. It is exactly as described by the owner and previous reviews. But the photos are not not adequate to help you appreciate the interior views particularly. Very charming. Don't pass this up if you want to experience a stunning natural setting.
As others have also said, I will echo the warning that the driveway is rustic and will be challenging for some drivers because of turns and steep slopes. I drive a Nissan with front wheel drive. Did not have a problem under good conditions. Remember that it is advertised as secluded which is not an exaggeration. Stop at the grocery store and stock up in a larger town than Great Cacapon, like Berkeley Springs or Winchester, before you pull in the first day because it is a good distance with twists and turns if you forget to bring something that you "must have".
Thank you for your nice review. My wife and I are looking forward to spending four days at the cabin later this week We love the views too. We hope to have you as a guest again soon.
The cabin was adorable and super clean. What a nice get away!! Sitting high up in the trees, the view from the deck was great...we really enjoyed watching the skies. I'd do it again!
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. A Little Place in WV is a wonderful peaceful place to get away. My wife and I were there this past weekend. The world was YELLOW. Beautiful. We hope you will come again.
Property was very nice and secluded
We enjoyed our stay and riding around the country side. It was very quiet and restful.
I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. We love the cabin and the peace and quiet too. It's a great place to get away. Thanks for staying with us.
Home away from home
We love coming here. It's very quiet, cozy, well-maintained, and supplied with all that we need.
My husband and I had a very enjoyable stay- the remote setting was quiet and peaceful and provided the respite we were looking for. Fall was a beautiful time of year to come and the view from the house was breathtaking, along with providing some wonderful star gazing opportunities. The house was cozy, clean and well kept, and well stocked with all the essentials.
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.
Additional pricing information
Part of the beauty of our cabin is that is a mile and a half down a dirt road. For that reason we do not rent the cabin January thru part of March. We welcome guests in late November and December. Should you feel uncomfortable with foul weather predictions please call me to discuss the situation. We want you to be comfortable and will be happy to give a full refund should winter weather threaten.
