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.

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.

We've stayed at a half-dozen different properties around Berkeley Springs, and this might be our new favorite, considering location (midway between town and Cacapon state park) and ambiance. The community pool complex is lovely but could use a face lift.

Rest, relax and enjoy this WV cabin retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful and relaxing week at "Kismet" in Berkeley Springs. The cabin was very comfortable, clean, and well equipped with all you need to cook, grill and most of all relax. This was our first time using home away -our experience along with the responsiveness and communication with Sarah could not have been better.

Myself and four friends spent the weekend here and were very impressed with the space (large open living area with dining and kitchen nearby, making it easy to connect with each other). The house is beautiful, and would work very well for a group get-away (family reunion, etc.). Five bedrooms with three upstairs and two downstairs meant lots of personal space (and a 2nd TV and kid toys downstairs so you could have adults upstairs and kids downstairs if you wanted).The views were beautiful, and the large windows were very nice.

The house was just as described in the listing, well kept, lots of supports for families with children (drawer locks, baby gate, toys, etc.). Would definitely recommend the property to friends and family. Very helpful information booklet by TV with trail information, restaurant menus, etc.

Spent part of a day in Berkeley Springs which was easy to get to, and we enjoyed walking around (We brought so much food, we didn't need to eat out, so can't review the restaurants in town!)..

We would definitely come back here again!

Excellent getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! It was so wonderful kicking back and relaxing by the fire and in the screened in porch. It was a weekend filled with plenty of laughter and memories spent with old friends. The property manager was very nice and friendly too. Only thing I have to say that could be improved is the water pressure in the shower and the grill was quite dirty. That being said, we will definitely consider this place again in the future as we loved this cozy and luxurious cabin!

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Kismet! We have our caretaker headed to the property to clean the grill today so the next renter will be greeted with a clean grill. We hope you get the opportunity to visit again!
