“Sanctuary on the Lake”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

We just returned from a 5 night stay in this lovely cabin. It is located about 6 miles south of Berkeley Springs town. We found the house to be extremely clean and comfortable. Just a few suggestions: new pots and pans needed, a larger tv, maybe a second one, and a water softener. The beds are comfortable, bathrooms are spotless, floors and rugs are clean, appliances all work perfectly, furniture is very comfortable, air conditioning excellent, location is very private and quiet. The grounds are a bit rugged. We had a few issues that had nothing to do with the management, but it took away from our perfect escape - the first day the Internet went out and although it was supposed to be fixed 24-48 hrs, it never was. That kept us from researching the local towns, restaurants, spas, etc so that we weren't able to take advantage of what there was to do and see in the area. The weather was terrible! Tornado watches, flood warnings, lightening storms etc all but 1 day we were there. Overall, the experience with the cabin rental was ideal, the not so great parts were just bad luck! I would recommend using this rental company as the property is in excellent condition.

We got a great house at a great price. They went the extra mile for us. We were in a bind because we had rented a cabin for the weekend from a individual and it didn't work our and we were in need of a rental to finish our 26 wedding anniversary.

We recently spent several days at Judy's Carriage House in Berkeley Springs, booked online through BS Cottage Rentals. The accommodation was exactly as described and pictured, plus it was very clean and well stocked plus we were greeted with chocolates and a bottle of wine set out for our pleasure!

I liked the fact that everything was done in advance online and we could go straight to the cottage and let ourselves in by getting the key from a lockbox on the door whatever our arrival schedule. This particular little cottage is great for a loner, a couple, or two friends if one doesn't mind sleeping on the safabed n the living room. The sofabed isn't bad and you do have your own bathroom. The cottage sits on the slope of a hill and there's a nice hot tub on a small deck overlooking the hillside. The lights at a near by high school sports field are offensive when they are on, but fortunately that's not every night and the deck is a great place for star gazing and enjoying the mountain breezes. Although the cottage shares the property with the owners home, it still feels very private. We met the owner who was friendly and instantly fixed a small problem with hot water even though we told her it wasn't a big issue.

The cottage is convenient to everything but not really walking distance to the spas area as you might think from the "downtown" classification of the listing. If I were planning a return trip to Berkeley Springs, I'd be happy to stay here again.

I have used Berkeley Springs Cottage rentals twice and they are 2 for 2...in a good way!! Very polite and cordial staff. The process for booking could not be easier and the detail you get on getting to your cottage/cabin is very thorough. Both of our cottages were clean and well maintained. We will be returning to Berkeley Springs for many years to come in part because of the positive experience with Berkeley Springs Cottage Rentals, Keep up the great work!

I spent the weekend chilling out here with a bunch of friends, all 20's and 30's. We had an amazing time and absolutely loved the "cabin" - the area was beautiful, it was clean and very well maintained, and was generally a perfect getaway.

Sure, if I lived there full time and had money to spend I would redo the kitchen, carpet the bathroom, and relocate the hot tub... but that didn't have any negative impact on our enjoyment of the place whatsoever. The rental company was also really helpful and provided good directions - it's a bit scary finding the place in the dark when you're used to the city.

I've rented random places all over and honestly this was one of my favorites. The decks and light and general warmth of the place made me wish we were staying longer than we did.

We stumbled on Berkeley Springs Cottage Rentals having dedicated ourselves to the Herculean task of finding a reasonably priced weekend rental outside of DC, with a hot tub, three days before Inauguration weekend. We had almost given up, but then we found Bobbi.

Bobbi is a gem. I spoke with her on the phone four times in one day, trying to pick the right location and figuring out pricing and whatnot. I would rent from Berkeley Springs again based on Bobbi alone.

Luckily, the cabin was great! We followed the spot-on directions provided in our confirmation email and had no trouble getting to the cabin or into the lock box where the keys were stored. Someone had already come by and turned on the heat inside the building and warmed up the downstairs hot tub.

You know how when you rent a house like this, you always expect it to look just a little shabbier than the pictures? Nestled Pines looked BETTER. Floor-to-ceiling picture windows in the living room looked out over an enormous front porch with a charcoal grill and a giant gas grill. A wood-burning fireplace was the visual focus of the living room. The two main bedrooms shared their own private side porch with a bench swing. The upstairs loft had a full bed and a kid-sized bed looking out over the living room and sharing the great porch view. The kitchen was clean and open with a six-person dining table and an adjacent screened-in porch with a four-person patio table.

Downstairs was a large basement game room with a ping-pong table, couches, second bathroom and a TV. It opened out to the downstairs porch with the coveted six-person hot tub. We managed to fit seven people in there (somewhat) comfortably every night we were staying in the cabin. I think we spent about eight hours total in there over the course of three days.

Were there flaws? Sure. The kitchen had almost everything you could possibly need, but was missing a big knife for chopping vegetables and could've used more sheet pans. Minor issue that we worked around. The hot tub, while incredible, was situated a little too close to the septic tank and we would get the occasional whiff of sulfur. It really didn't bother us.

And notice the rating, here. Five stars. Even with the little flaws, this was still a great vacation. Three nights, seven people, $638. You really can't beat that deal! I wasn't home for five minutes before I was going through the Berkeley Springs Cottage Rentals website trying to figure out which one we'll rent next.

I had rented a different property from Berkeley Springs Cottage Rentals a few years ago for a girls' weekend (Cub's Loft) which was wonderful, and this time my family wanted to get away to the woods for Christmas so we tried a smaller place (Treetop at the Woods Resort). The folks in the office were a pleasure to work with, and when I tried to book a different cottage initially which resulted in a double-booking, I was offered a discounted rate for my second choice (which actually turned out to be perfect). The cottage was very clean, a bundle of wood was waiting next to the fireplace, and it had a great view of the woods. Wifi was faster than what we get a home, and while we never really watched TV (we had Scrabble tournaments instead!), we noticed that there were hundreds of channels available. Loved the fireplace and the views! We would definitely rent from this company again.
