We have the most wonderful guests at Lazy Days River Retreat! Many of our guests return time and time again! Below are entries taken directly from the cabin's "Guest Journal". Come and see why our guests have ranked us as the TOP cabin rental in the Berkeley Springs area!
We had a wonderful time. Didn't think about home or work or computers even once. Your cabin is really beautiful and whoever decorated it has wonderful taste. Everything I saw said to me that these people really care. It is unusual to see so much love and care go into something for someone else's enjoyment. We love it here and will be back. I just wanted to stay here and not go out. We loved it and will be back.
~ Ellen and Dave, Baltimore, MD
What a wonderful retreat away from our hectic Philadelphia lives!! Thank you so much for the champagne which we enjoyed on our 40th wedding anniversary. The Panorama Restaurant was superb!! It will be hard to return to the craziness of everyday life but just the thought of Lazy Days River Retreat will put a smile on our faces. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.
~ Maryann and Steve, Haddon Heights, NJ
It was such a great pleasure to stay here this week. Our honeymoon here was completely fantastic! This rates up there at #1 in all the vacations I've taken since my childhood with my family. Thank you Meg and Eric for everything that you've done to make this so great. The total peace and quiet, the location, the deer, the hot tub, and the fireplace combined to make this the perfect honeymoon spot. My sister visited here many times and loved it here. I can feel her presence all around me and that made me feel so welcome and at home. Doris loves it here as well as I do and it's difficult to pack and leave this morning. Thank you!!
~ Doris and Frank, WV
Thank you for welcoming us into your home. A weekend here was exactly the short vacation we needed before Thanksgiving. We really enjoyed the hot tub, fireplace, grill, hiking at Cacapon State Park, and cooking in your fully stocked kitchen. We also had a great time dancing to oldies on the jukebox each night. Sad to go, but really happy we spent a few days here away from crazy life. Definitely hope to be back in the future.
~ Caitlin and Paul, College Park, MD
We, like most folks who come here, were in urgent need of a respite from our harried daily life. We willingly left it all behind in order to have a time together where "nothing is pending." We packed up our things and our two happy dogs and drove the 2 hours here. This retreat is totally awesome and beautifully appointed with every convenience. We were so impressed and comfortable here, that we ventured out only once to dine at the Panorama (I recommend the pasta florentine). We spent our days walking the woods, taking in the spectacular landscape. We enjoyed the sights, sounds, and smells of the woods as well as the wildlife. The geese woke us up each morning and we saw deer every day. We enjoyed many games of scrabble and crackling fires in the fireplace. I spent hours in the hot tub, reading and drinking wine. We have totally enjoyed every minute of our stay and plan to come back (not soon enough)! If we ever come into a large sum of money (haha), we would surely like to have a home of our own here. Thanks for everything!
~ Sheri, Peter, Cooper, and Molly, PA
What a wonderful cabin! Truly relaxing -- I don't even know where to begin to say what we enjoyed -- all of it! Thank you for providing the perfect location for an awesome weekend!
~ Heather, Tom, Coco, and Millie
This was one of the nicest, best-equipped, and cleanest places we have ever stayed. We travel a lot and really appreciate the extra touches. The scenery is beautiful and the Apple Butter Festival was so much fun. We loved the hot tub and spent a lot of time relaxing. It also helped that we had perfect weather for the 3 days we were here.
~ The Moores
Our week here was extremely relaxing! The cabin is beautiful and was a great way to get away from stresses back home.
~ The Shreve Family
Many thanks for a wonderful getaway. We couldn't have asked for more! Be back soon.
~ The Clarks and Raifords
Thank you for a wonderful relaxing vacation! We celebrated our 1 year anniversary and had an amazing time. We loved everything: hot tub, juke box, fireplace, deck, etc.! Panorama at the Peak was great. We also loved the Paw Paw Tunnel and Tari's Cafe downtown! Billy (our dog) loved our morning walks to the river! Thank you for your awesome, organized, clean home! We could not have asked for more!
~ Lance, Amy, and Billy
Tommy and I had such a great time! From our first sighting of a deer when we first pulled up to our two-a-day hot tub sessions. I now want a jukebox, but Tommy says he doesn’t think he can handle 24 hours of bad karaoke constantly. We were both amazed at the quietness coming from the noisy city living... Thanks for an amazing and relaxing weekend getaway!
~ Fondly, Tommy and Mandy
We had a wonderful weekend getaway at Lazy Days! Morning walks to the river, afternoons in Berkeley Springs, and an adventure through the mysterious Paw Paw tunnel…a great family vacation! Thanks for this special cabin. It is well kept, and in a beautiful location. We’ll be back!
~ The Ridge Family, PA
Once again the hot tub was grand. The quiet and seclusion are wonderful. Next time we come we might actually make it to the river.
~ Brian McGahy and Adell Milne - Rockville, MD
What a great vacation! All our needs were anticipated, just like home but better! Very relaxing, LOVE the hot tub. Panorama Restaurant was the best, great fishing (I caught the big one J) and great antique mall in Berkeley Springs. Thank you so much for making this home away from home so comfortable!
~ Sandy Sutton, John Beemer, and Zeke (the dog), Ocean Grove, NJ
We had a wonderful time at your beautiful home! The name fits. We relaxed and enjoyed the peaceful surroundings.
~ Gordon and Colleen Schauer, Ashburn VA
We all had a great time staying at your little establishment. Everything is very well organized. We celebrated my 18th birthday and I personally couldn’t think of any better way to have a better birthday, unless you’re the sort of person who can’t stand their family. One of the things my Dad and I admired about the cabin is if you sit anywhere in the main living area; preferably the brown couch or the two rockers; you’ll see that the area surrounding you outside is like a tree house. You really can’t see the forest floor, so it looks like you’re up in the trees. We loved the Paw Paw tunnel, it was very mysterious; be sure to bring a flashlight! The Panorama restaurant was excellent, the view was gorgeous.
~ Lauren, Anne, and Rob Shylah of Great Falls, VA, Leah of McLean, VA, and Kai the dog
Had a great time. Best equipped house we have ever stayed in.
~ Roger, Joe, Josh, and Dissa - Raleigh NC
Thank you so much – this was a wonderful (and necessary) respite for myself, husband, my 84 year old father, and our 10 year old labradoodle, Luke. Grill is best of any rental ever – beach or mountains. We hope to come again.
~ Vail, Roger, Johnnie and Luke
Thank you for the wonderful cabin and all the included goodies for our first annual ladies retreat from Living Waters Christian Fellowship. Everything exceeded our expectations. Went to the restaurant, Panorama at the Peak and it was great! We had an awesome weekend, much needed relaxation and inspiration. God has provided some amazing surroundings and you provided great lodging to make for a perfect weekend.
~ May God Bless, Ladies Group of LWCF, Barbara, Betty, Cassidy, Debbie, Rhonda, and Yvette - Winchester VA
Tammera, our dogs Jan and Bud, and I thoroughly enjoyed 4 wonderful days of relaxation and entertainment. Thank you!
~ The Farris' - Bridgeport, WV
The milkshake machine and hot tub made this trip. While the jukebox provided a soundtrack, the movie selection gave constant entertainment, thus your well-equipped cabin made for a wonderful vacation for all of us, from 16 to 57. Thank you!
~ The Schexnayder Family - Baltimore, MD
When you live in Barrow, Alaska, the sun sets on November 16th and we won’t see it again until January 24th. Thus, suffice to say this was an awesome place to relax with family that we don’t get to see as often as we would like. Absorbed more sunshine and made more Vitamin D in a day than we have in 3 months in Barrow. Thank you and thanks to Aunt Carol for setting this up!
~ The Greene Family, Barrow, Alaska
We had a very relaxing visit. Your cabin is awesome. Hiking in the State Park was beautiful…..the trails are well-marked and vary in difficulty. The trees are “in-season” and the view from this house was great. Thank you for letting us bring our dog, Sydney, she was exhausted from all of our walks!
~ Janice and Calvin - Timonium, MD
Very homey and very comfy! Totally enjoyed the home and surroundings. Beautiful scenery and weather. The master bedroom has the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. We were amazed by all the time taken to put together the notebooks and the availability of great books and movies. We unfortunately had to leave a couple days early due to a family emergency but hope to come back! Thanks for sharing.
~ Gary and Linda - Edinboro, PA
Oh what luxury! We enjoyed it all – the marvelous bedding, the powerful hot tub, the great kitchen. We even played Yahtzee and watched Gettysburg in Miniature – which is better than expected. And thank you for the complete thoughtfulness from extra batteries to feminine products! You are obviously special people. We hope to be back and to stay longer.
~ Lurie and Thomas - Rockville, MD
Eric and Megan, Thanks so much for letting us use your cabin for our home away from home. We have had a wonderful and relaxing week here at Lazy Days River Retreat. We had a good week just looking at the pretty mountains and driving around Berkeley Springs. This is the first time here. We also went into Winchester VA and Martinsburg WV. The Farmers Market in Winchester VA was great. My sister came with us and she just couldn’t get over the quietness and peacefulness here. She kept saying NO CELL PHONES and not much traffic. Well our two babies (dogs) Shih Tzu L.C. and Precious really liked trailing the deer. And they liked all the birds. We kept telling them not to bark because all the wildlife are their friends. My sister and I really liked the West Virginia cookbooks, so my husband ordered the books for us over the Internet. The weather was first rate. We loved the low 50s at night. We didn’t have to use any heat and not much AC. We would like to make another visit back in the fall when the leaves are all in color. Thanks again, may God bless.
~ Bill, Ruby, Sis, L.C., Precious - Waldorf, MD
What a relaxing time! We passed up a vacation to Williamsburg in favor of finding a place where we could just relax as a family and rest from our busy lives. We found it here. Thanks for making an exception to allow our six children – they had a fabulous time playing UNO, dancing in the rain, and going (hesitatingly!) through the Paw Paw Tunnel! ? Thanks – and do we have to leave?!
~ The Houseworth Family - Charlottesville, VA
We had excellent weather for fishing, swimming in the river, and relaxing. The town is just quaint enough, and there is plenty to see. Your cabin is great – and is thoughtfully arranged and also thoughtfully equipped. The extra amenities were an added bonus that was truly enjoyed. Your library of books and entertainment was excellent. We also appreciated the detailed description of the surroundings and activities that you prepared in the 3-ring binders. Thank you for making our first trip to WV such an enjoyable one – I’m quite sure that we’ll be back soon!!
~ Margaret, John, and Canine - Landenberg, PA
We really enjoyed the river retreat and several lazy and rainy days. The wildlife in the area is amazing and a little scary when you see a deer in the headlights on the way home at night. The cabin is very well equipped, clean, and comfortable. Thanks Eric and Megan!
~ Rick and Linda - Surrey, England
Packing up after a very relaxing, very lovely long weekend. A great place to come hang out with friends – lying in the hammock, swimming in the Cacapon, eating lots of good food (who knew there would be a milkshake maker?). The Paw Paw Tunnel was an experience – left the dog a little nervous, but hopefully not too traumatized (she seems back to normal). First time in West Virginia – left us eager to return.
~ Greg, Debbie, Danielle, and Mela - Alexandria, VA
We loved West Virginia! We had a lot of family-oriented things to do, which was great because my brother and I begin college this fall. The parks in the area are beautiful and the mountaintop views are breathtaking. The hot tub was enjoyed thoroughly (esp. by my mom). The cabin was cozy, comfortable, and very well kept. We enjoyed our stay and loved being able to explore the local mountains and parks, as well as in Paw Paw. Thank you so much – best wishes!
~ The Sneads - Baltimore, MD
Greetings! What a heavenly place you have. My family and I usually travel with Lysol, rubber gloves, and disinfectants. We did not have to use any of it. To say the least, we appreciated cleanliness. It is truly ALMOST heaven. My favorite part was jogging up the hill, passing the deer on the way. I change my mind. My favorite part was showering and then getting into the hot tub to soothe my aching muscles. I change my mind. Panorama at the Peak was the bomb. That means good. I change my mind. My favorite part was sitting on the porch with family in the cool of the evening just relaxing. Being originally from W. Va., I must say that the friendliness of my fellow West Virginians made me proud. The gentleman at the Stoney Creek store who sold me fish bait and fed me with good unpretentious conversation; the people who directed me to the hardware store in Paw Paw and the hardware store employees in Paw Paw were great. Take me home to the place where I belong. West Virginia, mountain mama, country roads. PS: A visit to Martinsburg to the Eastern Panhandle crafts/antique variety store is well worth the trip.
~ P. Radford - Washington, DC
We would like to say thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home. It’s in a nice, peaceful, quiet setting and it was just what we were looking for. Your home felt like home away from home in that it was cozy; it had everything you could possibly need and more. Your amenities were just up our alley. Also we had fun at the Panorama and Tari’s. We also had a chance to stop at Martinsburg and shop the flea markets. Everything was fun. Thanks a bunch.
~ The Radford Family - Washington, DC
Great place to play Mah Jong. One of the last places you can have a quiet peaceful place to contemplate life. Kudos to the Steak and Seafood House in Berkeley Springs.
~ Sue U., Sue S., Lynn, and Linda - Bethesda, MD
Our second time here, this to celebrate David’s 45th birthday (and Trae, the Doberman’s 8th birthday)! We all had a great time – we’ll be back again, I’m sure!
~ Mary, Keith, David, Jim, Bruce, Corie - Baltimore, MD & Dover, DE
We met my Mom at Antietam after she did her week of volunteer work at the battlefield. After touring the battlefield, our little caravan of two vehicles arrived at Lazy Days River Retreat. Everyone had a wonderful time just hanging out and “chilling” in 86 degree weather! Sara and Kixx had a great time sniffing and playing ball. Thanks!
~ J+K+S+K Lorgie & L+J Janick - Brick, NJ & South Hero, VT
This was our first cabin rental and we loved it. We mostly go camping but we just sold ours (gas prices)! We agree with everything said on opposite page! Our two dogs loved the place and they don’t want to leave. Lots of deer and birds not to mention peace and quiet. We only had two days and like to return for a longer stay in the future. Thanks for use of cabin! PS – Take a walk through the Paw Paw Tunnel!
~ John and Jamie Kohl - Womelsdorf, Pennsylvania
Great cabin. We have been visiting the Berkeley Springs cabins for a while now. This is one of the best ones we have stayed at. Hot tub on the deck, fireplace, good amenities, and very well maintained. The book and move collection is AWESOME. Someone has a great taste here and we thought it is worth mentioning. It’s a great stay. Very peaceful and relaxing!!! We will come back again when it is not so cold. Thank you!!!
~ S&M&A - Fairfax, VA
Totally exceeded everyone’s expectations! A wonderful place to bring in my 40th birthday (I’m still younger than the rest of the crew). The Paw Paw Tunnel is awesome. We’re heading to the Panorama for brunch – menu looks fabulous. Being able to have our dogs here made it perfect. Our Labrador thinks dogs should be allowed in the hot tub :-)
~ Jessica, Chris, Daisy, and Mocha - New Market, MD
Such a relaxing weekend – we all enjoyed your place, especially our Doberman Trae! We will definitely come here again.
~ The Waltz Family - Baltimore, MD / Dover, DE
Thank you so much for the wonderful vacation. This is a very relaxing, homey atmosphere. We fully enjoyed our Christmas here. We will definitely be back. Thanks again!
~The Cornaire Family - San Diego, CA / Ashburn, VA / Bath, NY
Dear Lazy Days Family – Mommy, Daddy, Charlie (our dog), and I had a great time being lazy in your wonderful home. It was so clean I crawled all over the place exploring. Charlie had great fun barking at the squirrels and sniffing for deer. Mommy and Daddy must have really enjoyed the hot tub and king size bed – they looked well rested every morning. We all enjoyed the fireplace. To listen to Garrison Keillor, put the portable radio [in the coat closet] on a bar stool to the right of the fern wall hanging. Thanks again for letting us use your home – we hope to come back soon.
~ Madeleine R. (7 months), Washington, DC
We enjoyed this beautiful and quiet retreat. We can’t wait to come back!
~ The Bentleys
We had an absolutely spectabulous stay at the Lazy Days wooded hut. The house is very cozy and set on a beautiful plot of land. We’d love to come back!!
~ J, L, K, and P
This is our fifth stay in Berkeley Springs and this cabin gets a five star, two thumbs up rating! Starting with the welcoming committee, Sammy and Sheba (our dog Zora thought she had died and gone to heaven when she saw them!), adding the serene and beautiful surroundings, amenities, and tasteful decorating, then wrapping that up with a warm soak in the hot tub – what can we say? Superb, peaceful, relaxing, and TOUGH TO LEAVE! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home! We’ll definitely return and soon!
~ David, Michelle, and Zora
This cabin lacks nothing! Clean, tastefully furnished, in a beautiful setting. The only thing that rivaled it was the weather – superb! Dinner at the Panorama was really excellent. Thanks for a wonderful weekend getaway.
~ S&P, Lancaster County, PA
This is a beautiful place. Hot tub is great. The quiet is remarkable. We'll come back sometime.
~ Brian and Adell, Rockville, MD
What a great cabin! We enjoyed a relaxing weekend and we'll definitely be back.
~ Joe and Julie Siler, Shepherdstown, WV
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your cabin! We had an unforgettable weekend. The girls enjoyed massages and everyone had fun in the hot tub. Honey (the dog) enjoyed running around with the "locals". We also had fun swimming at the Cacapon State Park. Once again, thank you so much for an awesome weekend. Hope to be back soon!
~ Adam, Erica, Diana, Ross, Brent, and Honey
Thank you so much for the opportunity to use your lovely cabin for five days. It was a "little bit of Heaven." We love the view and were greeted daily by all the beautiful deer. You are blessed by having such a beautiful part of our country to live in. We shall return! ~Bob and Cindy Millard, Newport News, VA
Thank you for letting us use your wonderful vacation cabin! We had a very relaxing and fun-filled weekend. The cabin was fully stocked with everything we needed, and it's in a great location! Hopefully we'll be back soon! Thanks again!
~ Lauren, Dillon, Meg, and Bruce
This was our first time staying at a vacation cottage and we were very impressed! The cottage is stocked with pretty much everything you could need (from tweezers to calculators). The hot tub was an exquisite experience and the house was quite comfortable and clean. There is so much to explore just outside the cottage - our dogs loved it! It's about a 15-20 minute drive to a fantastic swimming spot on the Cacapon (look for "public stream access" sign). 30 minutes gets you to Rite Aid, Food Lion, and Dairy Queen. We'll come back again!
~ Sarah and Kris, Washington DC
The Panorama Restaurant was great. Excellent fresh food and a warm atmosphere. We enjoyed the hot tub, the relaxation, and playing games at the house! Thank you. Oh – Mountain Laurel Craft Gallery was a great store – unique gifts!
~ Debra and Darryel
My sister and I loved the cabin. We found it very relaxing and peaceful. It was an added bonus that my sister was allowed to bring her dog. The hot tub was my favorite amenity. What a great place to just hang out.
~ Crystal May
We had an excellent time. This is a beautiful cabin and we appreciate the use of it. ~Michael and Heather
What a wonderful “home” away from home. No detail overlooked. Absolutely loved it!
~Erica and Benjamin
Perfect Memorial Day! Thanks for this wonderful home. Beautiful, peaceful location. This "cottage" is so thoughtfully set up -- we felt very pampered by all your amenities! Thank you!
~ The Zubalys, Falls Church, VA
What a getaway! :-) We enjoyed the mountains and Windor (our dog) enjoyed the river. Great place - thanks!
~ Holly, Mary, and Windsor, Cleveland, OH
Had a great time. Have stayed in vacation cabins many times, but never one as well thought out, well organized, and well stocked. Made everything run smoothly.
~The McCavour Family (Florida and Virginia)
We very much enjoyed the comforts of your secluded cabin in a most scenic part of wonderful wild West Virginia. We didn't come close to utilizing all of your various kitchen appliances, but we appreciated having them all on hand. We spent several relaxing hours in the hot tub with views of nature all around as we soaked. We both slept very comfortably on the pillow top mattress in the master bedroom. Thanks for providing us with a memorable few days of peace and comfortable quiet.
