Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath With Mountain Views

Many Native Americans believed the bear's long sleep brought visions of truth and healing. The Bear has come to symbolize a great source of wisdom through relaxation, looking inward, and giving attention to one's dreams. After their time of rest, bears emerge with a new strength and vigor for life, much like the growing earth itself. At Bear Garden Retreat you can enjoy relaxation as a source of healing and renewal. We hope this retreat with it's impressive views leaves you feeling restored and revived.

Bear Garden Retreat is the perfect getaway for people who want to enjoy the rustic beauty of a log cabin as well as the luxury of modern amenities. The cabin is great for families looking for a relaxing escape, couples searching for a romantic retreat, or even for a group of friends who want to get away from it all. Bear Garden features lovely log furniture as well as beautiful and original art work. The kitchen is fully equipped to accommodate any chef. The cabin has many luxury features with a rustic feel throughout.

Bear Garden features three lovely bedrooms, a spacious screened-in porch, and a large hot tub. You can sit back and relax on the screen porch, or soak your worries away in the state-of-the-art hot tub. Every effort has been made to make sure our guests have a relaxing and rejuvenating escape. Bear Garden Retreat is private enough to have the full “cabin in the country” experience, but close enough to feel safe and secure in the woods. Only minutes away from The Cacapon State Park, and less than seven miles from downtown Berkeley Springs, you’ll never run out of fun things to do. If you’re looking for an upscale retreat in the woods, then Bear Garden is the perfect place for you!

About Karen King

We have moved and now live in Berkeley Springs. It has been a dream of mine to offer beautiful luxury cabins at a reasonable price. My attention to detail and standard of excellence set Cacapon Cabins apart from the rest. This is my business and I will always go the extra mile for my guests. I am here to assist you in making your stay enjoyable. Please ask about year round specials and in cabin services that are available.

As an artist, the mountains have provided a great amount of creativity. Bear Garden features many of my own original artwork. Aesthetics are important to me and provide a relaxing environment.

Cooking is one of my favorite things to do for my family and friends. I've stocked Bear Gardens kitchen with two full sets of China. Reed and Barton flatware. Plenty of Crystal glassware, pots, pans and utencils. Everything you need to set a beautiful table and cook a memorable meal.

Why Karen King chose West Virginia

Our love of the mountains and hiking brought us to Berkeley Springs. Berkeley Springs is one of USA Todays Top 10 Best Southern Small Town 2015. It is a Art filled town with it's own unique character and energy. There are plenty of fun things to do in town. Berkeley Springs State Park offers a Spa and Roman bath area. Or you can just wade in any time of year for free. Bring your water bottles and fill up fresh Spring water! Stroll the downtown for antiques, art or dine at the many fine restaurants.

Bear Garden Retreat is South on 522 near Cacapon State Park. We enjoy hiking, kayaking, swimming, fishing, golfing, horseback riding and shooting at the range. The scenic Overlook is not to be missed. Cacapon State Park offers many free family activities year round.

Hancock MD is near by and there is access to the C&O and Northern and Western Rail Trail. Both are excellent to ride. One highlight is the Paw Paw tunnel.

Bear Garden Retreat sits at an elevation of 800 feet above sea level. We are at the end of a quiet lane surrounded by oak forest. We have seasonal long range views. You can stroll up and down the lane without any traffic. Our neighbors are friendly and few. Bear Garden Retreat is a gift and we are happy to share it with others. We hope you enjoy your retreat and come again.

Fantastic house, fantastic setting, fantastic host

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this charming cabin was amazing! The cabin itself was cozy, clean, well laid out and well appointed; definitely seemed more like staying in someone's home than a rental cabin. The surroundings were just as nice; nestled among the trees and tucked back from it all. We were lucky enough to enjoy a 70 plus degree weather weekend in February and took advantage of the screened in porch to take in the view. And Karen herself was great. Communication was easy and quick, gave lots of info for the area, box of brownies upon arrival and no qualms about shipping back items that I accidentally left behind. You can tell she takes great pride in this place. Can't wait to go back!

Birthday/ long weekend trip

  • 5 of 5

We visited for the holiday weekend. Myself, husband, and our friends (also a married couple). We had never visited the area before, and chose it because it was halfway between our homes. The home was immaculate, with every comfort of home, and many more. We had the luxury of unseasonably warm weather for Florida, so we were able to sit on the screened porch and enjoy the fresh air. It also made getting in/out of the hot tub less painful!

Karen even left an extra touch- a few K-cups and brownie mix was there to greet us! We thought it was such a nice gesture.

My only dislike would have to be the bed(s), as the king was pretty hard, and the downstairs wasn't much better. However, I prefer a much softer mattress, so that's likely just my preference. I slept on the couch one night in front of the fire instead, and was quite content!

All in all, the home was wonderful, and we all talked about how much we would enjoy staying there again.

Cacapon Cabins is my small business and I hold myself to the highest level of excellence. I'm sorry that the mattresses are firm; glad that the couches provided a softer sleep surface.Hope to see you again! Best Regards, Karen

Couples weekend

  • 5 of 5

Couples getaway. The cabin had everything that we needed and more. Well stocked kitchen, plenty of room to spread out, wonderful outside screened in porch, and hot tub. Grill was a hit with the guys. The cabin was SUPER clean and with bedding and linens provided it was a major plus.

Karen was super to deal with and very accommodating. We are already planning our next trip to Bear Garden.

Clean and Warm Property

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! From the moment we walked in the door the cabin felt like home. It is located in a beautiful area and close to the major road (but not too close!). The kids had a blast because they were able to see deer and spent hours playing in the game room. Everything was provided to us which was a large help. Karen was also very accommodating. She made us feel comfortable by letting us know that she was there if we needed help or had questions. I can't wait to come back!
