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 Berkeley Springs

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.

Great family retreat from DC!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Bear Garden. The top floor was great for our toddler to walk around & explore. The kitchen was very nice and well laid out. Easy access to Berkeley Springs and Cacapon State Park, but we mostly just hung out around the house!

Absolutely beautiful! Everything we expected and more

  • 5 of 5

We spent our honeymoon here. The cabin was beautiful. Very clean and quiet. We felt so comfortable and welcomed. Karen (the owner) is so sweet. She made sure we had everything we needed and more. We're so happy we picked this cabin. We will definitely come back again.

Comfortable and Peaceful Getaway Cabin

  • 5 of 5

I came here as part of a group of 7, and we had a wonderful, relaxing time. The cabin is spacious, with plenty of sleeping, cooking, eating, and recreational space. There are games, movies, wifi, a hot tub, and a ping pong table if you want to chill at the cabin. Bear Garden Retreat is tucked away among woods and farmland and provides a comfortable, clean, and quiet place to escape the hustle and bustle of city or suburban life. Yet you are in short driving distance from trails for hiking or downtown Berkeley Springs if you want to be out and about. Karen responded quickly to all of my messages and made sure everything was perfect for our weekend. Everyone said they would consider staying here again!

We had an amazing weekend at the cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend and a great stay at your cabin! It was a weekend full of peace, solitude, laughter, good meals and quality time spent together reliving old memories and making new ones! As we get older, i truly believe the best gift we can give each other is time... thank you for giving us the opportunity to spend time together making memories in your cozy cabin.

The cabin was unbelievably clean and welcoming. It was very cozy, comfortable and perfect for our weekend getaway. I/we especially loved the artwork that adorned the walls of the interior.

Lastly, the stars in the sky were so beautifully lit. It’s amazing how much more brightly they shine away from the city lights! So many beautiful things like this to see & appreciate at the cabin and extended Berkeley Springs area.

Would love to make this an annual family trip or to visit this fall to take in the glorious splendor of the fall foliage! God Bless, Stacy, Tammy and the Hardy’s (Baxter 🐾� & Benji 🐾�)

Pleasant and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We rented this for a couple of days for five people. The beds and bedrooms were comfortable, and we had a good common area for meals, games, and TV. Karen was very easy to work with. We would definitely stay there again.
