THE CABIN!
Scroll down for available rooms!

The cabin is nestled in the woods in Berkeley Springs in a community of other cabins with beautiful, scenic trails criss-crossing the area. The cabin is huge, with 8 bedrooms that each contain two twin beds, so everyone will have their own bed and share their room with one other person. Let me know if you have a preference for who you want to room with!
The cabin has SIX full bathrooms, central heating and a large wood-burning fireplace, a laundry room, a big kitchen, and tons of seating options.
