Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Berkeley Springs - Bear Garden Retreat

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. Our attention to detail and standard of excellence set us appart from the others. We are here to assist you in making your stay enjoyable.

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.

Karen King purchased this cabin in 2013

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. Our home is a gift and we are happy to share it with others. We hope you enjoy your retreat and come again.

What makes this cabin unique

Bear Garden Retreat has a state of the art kitchen with "NEW" High Efficiency GE Slate appliances. Convect Bake oven, Silent Dishwasher (you wont even notice it's on). We have made every attempt to go green with High Efficiency appliances, including a front loading stack-able Washer and Dryer.

The Nordic Spa hot tub is also energy efficient, state of the art, five person model with 28 powerful jets providing invigorating therapy to tense parts of the body. It has a waterfall and LED light system. The versatile bench seat can be used as a full body massage from the whirlpool jet.

A charcoal grill with propane lighting enhances your barbecuing experience without lighter fluid.

Plush mattresses, bedding and pillows create a restful experience.

Spending time on the screened in porch gives a feeling of being one with nature.

Solid American, custom made log furniture adorns the cabin.

Beautiful original artwork, quilts, sculpture decorate the home.

Amazing vacation in Bear Gardens.

We had a great time. Two small kids and a dog and it fit our needs perfectly. Great modern conveniences while being out in the woods and removed from it all. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful cabin, Great location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cabin, high end furnishings and very clean😀򐀠Its only 1/2 mile from the Cacapon Lake and the convenience store which is great if you have kids😀򐀠Our grandkids loved the hot tub and game room with the bedroom and full bathroom and the adults liked the idea of having the upstairs to themselves.. We will definitely visit again:-)

Top Quality Retreat- Definitely a Keeper

  • 5 of 5

Cabin had everything you want to make a great stay. Place was spotless and had the quality that made it very comfortable. From the king bed to the silverware to the furniture, all quality and above expectations. Well maintained hot tub plus the screened in porch are a bonus. Cabin has plenty of room and blends in perfectly with the treed surroundings.

Location is good as cabin is in a quiet area. Cacapon State Park is 5 minutes away and has great hiking among many other things to do. Town of Winchester, VA which is only about 35 minutes away has a great history plus the Shenandoah Valley Museum and Gardens which were really interesting.

Karen handled everything really well and everything went very smoothly. Highly recommend!

Wonderfully helpful owner...great amenities

  • 4 of 5

We had a great weekend over Memorial Day! Karen was above and beyond accommodating (even going so far as to walk our dog when we were gone for more than 4 hours!) and the house is outfitted with lots of niceties (appliances, dishes and silverware, hot tub) that make you feel like you are really being treated well. Beds are comfy and the house is roomy (screened porch was great for meals) and it was safe and easy to walk the dog! The only down side was the proximity to the neighbors. It is not a private retreat unless you are indoors, and when you are, it feels secluded and intimate. But there is not much property outdoors.

Let's all quit our jobs & move to the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

Bear Garden was absolutely amazing. It was just what we needed for our little girl's weekend away from it all. The house is beautiful & tastefully decorated with just the right amount of bear & country accents. It was also very clean & had a well stocked kitchen. The new appliances were amazing & a great addition. The hot tub was fantastic & the outdoor sitting area was perfect & screened in (very important, I'm sure, in the summer). It was truly a wonderful weekend & we are looking forward to returning/recommending in the future.
