Testimonials

These are some of the testimonials that we have received.

My girlfriends and I spent a wonderful weekend at this beautiful cabin. The photos don’t do it justice. The cabin was spotless and had everything we needed. Loved sitting out on the back deck and watching the sun rise over the trees. The cabin is not too far from town, but far enough that you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. The kitchen was spotless and the appliances are top notch. We had the most wonderful time in the cabin and made many wonderful memories. We can not wait to come back!

Dear Claudio & Lisa, Wow! What a beautiful cabin but hardly “roughing it” in the woods of West Virginia. Crabtree and Evelyn bath products and the outstanding electronics! I had never heard of a shower mousse or Roku before coming here:) Our lab/hound and English lab loved playing in the snow. Lots of snow!!! We had none at home so this was a treat. Thank you so much for providing us with a cozy getaway location so close to Cacapon State Park where the guys could practice shooting clays and a lovely stream at the bottom of the hill to explore. We will be sure to try to return and certainly tell our friends about this lovely cottage

We went to Berkeley Springs to get away from it all; and it certainly was that. We were able to do day trips or just hang around and do nothing with no interruptions from outside world. We had a very relaxed and rejuvenating stay. Brier (lab) enjoyed the Koi pond and the woods to run around in. We were overall quite happy with our stay at the rental and would recommend it for anyone wanting to relax and do nothing; or go sightseeing.

Jack Russell’s Ridge is very comfortable as well as pet- and child-friendly! We very much enjoyed our stay in your lovely home, and we appreciated all of the little touches you have made to ensure your guests are comfortable in your home away from home. Thank you very much!

Very comfortable hi tech cabin in a great area. There are tons of things to do in Berkeley Springs. The cabin was clean and had tons of amenities. If you forget wine they have a wine refrigerator and you can purchase bottles from the host. We stayed for three nights and it was a great, memorable experience.

The cabin had a very well-stocked kitchen. It was very private and quiet. The high tech amenities - large TV's, wifi, roku TV, satellite and charging stations amd computer worked great! We really like the wine frig, although we didn't imbibe, it was a nice option. Very pleasant stay.

Denise

Very nice space. Quiet neighborhood. A lot of technological amenities in a setting that feels far from the city, while still having a bit of an urban feel inside. Really close to Berkeley Springs, which is a lovely town.

Roxy

What a lovely cabin! Retriever’s Retreat offered my wife and I a very relaxing experience. Everyting was really clean and kept up. The yard was great for the dogs to play in. The location really worked for us being so close to Cacapon State Park. We would definitely stay there again if in the area.

Phil

Our family had a wonderful time and really enjoyed all of the amenities this cabin had to offer. It was peaceful,restful, and had the feeling of seclusion. The log bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept on. We brought our dogs, and though the oldest was “on his last legs”, they really enjoyed themselves in the yard and especially liked hanging out with us on the deck. He passed away just yesterday, and we were happy that one of his last experiences was enjoying a last vacation with us. Thanks for a lovely time!!!

I’ve now stayed at all three Berkeley Springs Getaways properties. I love them all, each for different reasons. Collie’s has a great location that’s close to town and convenient for some R&R. Jack Russell’s Ridge house was amazing and the most pet friendly. It was in a nice, wooded area, but still close to town. Labrador’s Retreat was the most secluded and definitely great for people who are looking to fly under the radar. The trip to Berkeley Springs will be an annual one for me!

This place us well is well equipped and so cozy and cute!! We loved our stay and enjoyed the firepit and video games galore! We were snowed in the first day but that didn't stop us from taking a hike down to the stream aand cooking a big meal in the stocked kitchen. We still defintely be back as we had such a great time! Thank you to the owners ..for providing such a great house!

Claudio was an accommodating and responsive host. The cabin has all the modern amenities one could want in a rustic and rural escape. Retriever’s Retreat is a stone’s throw from Cacapon State Park, and the hiking there is spectacular. We also managed a hot spring/spa visit, skiing at Whitetail, and visits to some local haunts including the brewery, Lot 12, and the famed Troubador Lounge. While we were mostly active during our two night stay, the Retreat also lends itself to some simple solace if that is more in order. Look forward to a return visit!

Thanks so much for sharing your lovely cabin with us and allowing our dogs to accompany us. It was their first “vacation” with us and it was nice not to have to find a house sitter and then wonder how the dogs were doing at home wishing I could have them to take on walks. We walked a LOT and met the nice neighbor across the street and her pup that runs the fence line for exercise. Cabin was really clean when we arrived and we tried to leave it clean before we left. I used the Swiffer with a paper towel to get up hair and wet snow tracks but couldn’t find a vacuum. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

Karen R.

My husband and I along with our little dog sammie spent a week here last August. The cabin was quite nice, very comftorable and provided all the things we needed. We enjoyed the large DVD collection and watched a new movie every evening. We enjoyed the shops and restaurants of Berkeley Springs and enjoyed trying the mineral baths. We also took some day trips and our favorite was to Winchester VA less than an hour away. I would definitely recommend a stay in this lovely relaxing cabin!

Julie Susanne

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jack Russell’s Ridge. The cabin provided a quiet home away from home and was very dog friendly. The cabin was set back from the street but was still very close to Berkeley Springs and the town of Hancock, where you can catch the hiking trails. The house provided all the comforts of home while being away! Thanks for the extras such as a pet bed, bowls and toys! Great stay!

Kara L.

This might be our new favorite spot - it’s close enough but far enough that it really gives us a break from our concrete jungle lives. It was perfect space to enjoy the quiet & hang out in nature with each other & our dogs!

Kate R.

This cabin is in an excellent location. It is close all the outdoor and indoor adventures of town and the local parks, but far enough away to feel like you have escaped to the woods. The beds and linens are amazingly comfortable!

Melinda

The cabin is true to listing, with many great touches that made the stay great! We enjoyed the fire pit and local sights. The streaming TVs and high tech touches make indoor days fun as well. Well stocked kitchen and comfy beds made for a happy group all around.
