About Owner/Property Manager

We are recently retired and have enjoyed living on 15 acres in the mountain for the past 10 years watching the ever-changing vista of the valley below. This location has the best views of the Potomac River in all of Morgan County. We speak English and Spanish fluently and will do our best to ensure your stay is perfect in every way.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Great Cacapon

We purchased this property as a retirement home and an opportunity to get close to nature. It is very quiet and secluded and situated on a private road. There are two hiking trails available through the woods; and being a Master Naturalist, I am more than happy to escort you on any hikes, if desired, and point out the local fauna. We are building a collection of local ferns and have several fern gardens, as well as a day lilies garden, and a certified butterfly garden/Monarch way station. The back deck has as much square footage as the house, and is complete with lounge chairs, an outside dining table and chairs, umbrellas, and BBQ grill to help you relax as you enjoy the ever changing views.

What makes this cabin unique

This property is all about the view, being close to nature, and the zen-ful solitude. The cabin is very modern and clean with all the amenities required to thoroughly enjoy your stay. We are happy to work with you if need flowers, chocolates, cheese plate, special wine, etc. while celebrating your special occasion.

So beautiful, so peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this little cabin! The view is breathtaking and it's pretty private. The cabin is well-appointed and clean, and with a comfy bed and all the cookware you'd need, we didn't leave once! We could easily have stayed another few days, and plan to definitely return...Hopefully in the fall, when I'm sure the view will be spectacular! I especially enjoyed watching the night sky, as well as just lounging on the deck with a book and looking at the birds. What a beautiful property! I wouldn't change a thing!

Absolutely unbelievable spot, so happy that we were able to stay there.

  • 5 of 5

We only had one night to stay in this cabin, and normally the VRBO cabins require a 2-3 night stay. So glad that we were able to spend the night here and enjoy the gorgeous views. We slept with the screen doors and had the cool mtn air and songs from the birds right in the bedroom. Only minor item was that the grill wouldn’t get hot for some reason, but the oven saved the day and we had a great meal.

Perfect Anniversary Celebration

  • 5 of 5

A Walk in the Clouds is just feel as if you are in the clouds, especially when rain/thunder moves in. While the weather wasn't ideal, the cabin and views were perfect. Just the right size for us. We enjoyed the hikes near the cabin before the rain rolled in. Lucky for us it did clear for a while before we headed to bed for the night so we were able to enjoy the beautiful West Virginia night sky before turning in. The cabin is exceptionally clean, comfortable, well laid out, we wanted for nothing. We felt quite at home and enjoyed our stay immensely.

Amazing One Night Stay

  • 5 of 5

This place is beautiful! The pictures do not do the view justice. It truly is breath taking and the stars are wonderful on a clear night. The cabin itself is very nice and cozy with great AC for a hot summer night, a fully stocked kitchen and expansive porch. We had a lovely campfire too. There was even a bottle of wine waiting for us for when we got there. I'm so glad we got to stay here and hope to visit again some day. Highly recommend!

Highly Recommend!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay at A Walk in the Clouds and it was perfect every time. The cabin is quaint and clean and has everything you would need for a comfortable, cozy getaway. The views are absolutely beautiful. The hosts are gracious and responsive and very kind. Keith and Frine go above and beyond to make sure you have a great experience and are very responsive to any questions. I highly recommend staying here to get away from the hustle of the city/suberbs. It is perfect!

Million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The cabin is new, clean, well equipped, and has a tremendous view of the winding Potomac River and Green Ridge State Forest. With linens, coffee maker, and other amenities ... this rental feels like a high-end extended stay hotel room. The hosts have prepared detailed directions to the cabin and detailed instructions for the TV, lights, etc. They also made a short hiking trail on the property. We saw plenty of birds and will be sure to bring our binoculars next time. Thanks!
