Winter Getaways: Please note this property is located in hilly, mountainous terrain, during winter months all wheel or 4 wheel drive is strongly recommended. During snowy conditions, secondary roads normally melt and are clear through the day and then re-freeze as the temperature drops in the afternoon hours, please keep this in mind when traveling.
Snow policy: During a snow fall event, driveways and secondary roads are not kept open and are not plowed until the snow has stopped. Also due to the rural conditions of the area, it may take time to get all of the driveways plowed. The contractors who plow driveways also are dependent on the secondary roads being cleared before driveways can be plowed. Please keep this in mind when planning your winter getaway and pack extra food items.

Ode to Joy
November 4th, 2012 – November 10th, 2012
Wonderful and cozy cabin! A great place to get away from it all (except for the presidential election results, which I just had to watch) I enjoyed being here alone for a quiet week of reading, writing, hiking, and overall relaxing. Cacapon State Park has some great hiking trails. If you’re looking for a massage, I highly recommend Frankie at Atasia.

My family needed one last mini-vacation before school and sports started up. Ode to Joy was the perfect little cabin for the four of us plus our French bulldog. We had a nice bike ride to the pool, and enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Unfortunately, Mother Nature was not on our side and last night there was a horrible rain storm; thunder, wind, etc. It was quite severe and poor Berkeley Springs suffered horrible flooding. Many stores and restaurants were closed today due to flood damage. We did get to Cacapon State Park today for a hike. My husband chose to hike to the top, while the kids and I kept it shorter. We went to the main lodge and played ping pong and board games while we waited. We ate a Panorama at the Peak to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. We were able to linger after dinner, playing backgammon until the storm passed. We also ate at Earth Dog Café, which was really good. All in all, a fun weekend despite all the wet weather.

This was our first cabin in the woods vacation! I couldn’t believe how clean and accommodating it was. This was a surprise get away for my boyfriend. He loved it. This cabin was perfect for us. We enjoyed walking around outside, cooking on the grill, and just sitting back in nature. Our busy and stressful lives we left behind to come here and it was much needed. Thanks soooooo much for the down time provided. We will definitely recommend this to our friends and will hopefully be back soon!!!
What started off as an episode of the Lucy Show, led into a lovely weekend here in the woods. After spending years at Coolfont Resort before it closed, I wasn’t sure what this would be like if it would still have that magical healing charm. But it does, and then some. Ode to Joy is indeed joyful- after the hustle of city life it was the refuge I wanted in the middle of nowhere. The best thing about this place is the quiet, the Jacuzzi, the screened-in porch and the majestic view of the woods. Would love to come back here in a heartbeat. The name of the cottage certainly lives up to itself.

Thank you so much! I had a wonderful time relaxing, refreshing, resting, reading, and playing the fiddle.
