About Sarah Bax

From The Owners:

We purchased this property in November 2012 to have a place outside of our home in Washington, DC, to enjoy some outdoor activities with our two young boys, and other friends and family. We love spending time at this house and are pleased to be able to share it with others.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home in a lovely setting - the perfect place for a relaxing girlfriend's weekend. We've been coming to Coolfont/Berkeley Springs for about 20 years now. This was only our second time at Kismet, but it is easily the most comfortable and spacious of the many homes we've stayed in. Already looking forward to our return!

Birthday getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous home, fully equipped with everything we could've wanted in terms of kitchen appliances, blankets, and towels. While it was quite chilly outside, it was nice and cozy inside with the fireplace roaring. We all really enjoyed our stay and would love to do it again next winter too!

GalPal weekend

  • 5 of 5

Kismet is a beautiful home, with plenty of space for our group of eight girlfriends. We loved the open design of kitchen/dining/living area where we played games and watched the BIG GAME (PSU vs. Wisconsin). If anyone needed privacy, there were options galore. The kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked with necessities. Our only suggestion would be to put mirrors in the bedrooms that don't have them. If we come back to the area on our annual retreat weekend, we would certainly stay here again.

Wonderful stay at Kismet

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed the house, the wonderful views, and the hiking. The owner was very responsive to all questions. The close proximity to the DC area is fantastic.

Beautiful, cozy, perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Kismet with 8 friends of mine and we had a wonderful time! The house is gorgeous and clean and the kitchen was well stocked with all the tools we needed to make breakfast, lunch and dinner. The fireplace, deck, and screened in porch were our favorite parts and the hiking right in the backyard essentially was great! Would highly recommend and probably rent again. The property manager/owners were super easy to work with and flexible too!

Celebrating Dad's 80th Birthday!

  • 5 of 5

Several DC-based family members and one Boston-based Aunt met up for three days to hike, eat, watch sunsets from overlooks, explore Berkley Springs, etc... As usual, the people and scenery were charming and spectacular. What made our trip special was our time at Kismet!!! Enjoying each other's company while cooking, eating, sitting on the screened in porch listening for wildlife, watching the sunrise and engaging in conversations worthy of discussion.

Family, a luxurious cabin, beautiful country and charming locals inspired our family to explore and experience a magical vacation that seemed a million miles away from DC. Thanks to Sarah for her efforts, support and patience to ensure we had more creature comforts we would every need. Thanks to the owners for providing a well equipped, charming Cabin so that my family had an opportunity to celebrate my Dad's birthday and each other's gifts and talents.
