Welcome to our West Virginia mountain cabin, situated high on a ridge within the Cacapon River watershed. Our 2-bedroom vacation cabin is perfect for couples or small families looking to get away and is located in the rolling hills West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle--a 2 hour drive from D.C. Enjoy tranquil mornings surrounded by our 5 acre woods, curl up with a book in front of our wood burning stove, or walk only steps to the old logging road for an easy to moderate hike to beautiful vistas.

The space

Welcome to Seldom Seen Cabin--our definition of "cozy" and your escape to comfort and relaxation. We trust you’ll feel completely at home and grounded in nature at our secluded West Virginia cabin with mountain views.

Stunning landscapes, pristine river swimming, steaming Berkeley Springs mineral spas and the Paw Paw Tunnel are a few good reasons to visit Seldom Seen Cabin this fall. In the winter, guests of our WV cabin rental say how much they love the sight and feel of a fire blazing in our wood burning stove and the coziness of the cabin environment. We think you'll agree!

Get ready to be obsessed with our porch! Guests of Seldom Seen Cabin all say just how much they love our mountain view, making your stay a unique one. We are located at the top of a mountain ridge, at approximately 1200 feet in elevation and the views from our covered, screened-in porch are to die for. During fall and winter, the leafless trees open the view to magnificent star gazing and on clear nights with absolutely no light pollution around, the sky is teeming with shooting stars.

In spring and summer, guests of Seldom Seen Cabin enjoy swimming, fishing and paddling on the nearby Cacapon River—known for excellent angling, beautiful scenery, hunting, plentiful wildlife, canoeing and kayaking. It’s one of the most pristine rivers to feed the Potomac and Chesapeake Watershed! Cabin guests have access to the Cacapon River for tubing and launching kayaks, canoes, or floats. Families and friends can also enjoy a slow and scenic float down the river, or wading and swimming at the nearby low water bridge during summer months. There are numerous alternative public stream access points nearby, perfect for launching small boats.

We extend many comforts of home at Seldom Seen Cabin. Our cozy, open-concept living area features an extremely comfortable Lazy-boy sofa with dual powered recliners, a second recliner for additional seating, Chromecast-enabled WiFi to stream your favorite shows, and a selection of DVDs for the entire family to enjoy. The farmhouse table seats 4, with room at the breakfast counter for more. Dual sliding doors open to spectacular mountain views, while the fully-stocked kitchen provides generous counter space for meal preparation. You will also find a gas grill with propane for grilling.

Our cabin comfortably sleeps 4, but we also provide a single Aerobed for your convenience. A pack-n-play and high chair, toddler-appropriate toys and games can also be found at the cabin.

Additional hiking and Potomac River fishing are just a short drive away. We are close to all that Berkeley Springs and West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle have to offer:

0.4 miles to clean, natural swimming on the Cacapon River
10.1 miles to Eidolon Nature Preserve
10.3 miles to Berkeley Springs State Park
20.7 miles to Cacapon State Park
21.5 miles to Morgan County Observatory
27.4 miles to Paw Paw Tunnel

Other things to note

Please bring your own sheets and towels for the beds. We provide down alternative comforters with clean duvet covers and pillows as well as many extras to make your stay a special one.

During the winter, the cabin's primary source of heat is the wood stove. (There are also baseboard heaters in the bedrooms and bathroom). We provide all wood, kindling, and instructions on how to get a roaring fire built in no time.

Archery season starts on Sept. 23rd and so begins hunting season in WV. Although we do not allow hunting on our land, we do recommend that you wear blaze orange or bright colors when you venture into the woods or on hiking trails.

Wildlife viewing is part of the joy of staying at our West Virginia cabin, however, please do not leave food or trash outside as it will attract wild animals (bears included!)

The view is awesome from anywhere in the family room. Then you go to the screened in porch and enjoy the outdoors without the bugs. With the same amazing view. The cabin is clean and well stocked with extra items. We had a great time enjoying piece and quiet.

Miranda's home was incredible, the pictures here don't do it justice, nor is there any way to convey how relaxing the location deep in the West Virginia woods is. We had an amazing time, and would certainly treasure the opportunity to come back.

Perfect fit for a girlfriend get-away weekend. We spent the majority of our time on the back porch mesmerized by the beautiful mountain views. The cabin is super comfortable, clean and cozy. The kitchen is well equipped to create some wonderful meals. We appreciated all the local info that Miranda provided...she was quick respond to all our questions. 2 quick tips...make sure to visit the Black Dog cafe in Berkeley Springs and consider taking a 4 wheel drive vehicle (road is a bit steep to cabin). thanks Miranda!

Absolutely beautiful cabin in the woods. Everything is as described. The screened in porch is the greatest thing ever. We spent 90% of our trip out there just enjoying the view and mountain air. Would definitely stay again.

Seldom Scene Cabin is the perfect getaway - very comfortable, well appointed, quiet and peaceful. Everything is very well cared for, and the screened porch and view are amazing. Miranda is extremely thorough in prepping guests for arrival and definitely available should anything arise. The setting is just close enough to go into the charming town of Berkeley Springs for a lovely dinner out, but honestly, the cabin is so wonderful guests might just want to stay put. We look forward to returning!

Cabin was very beautiful with an excellent view. We enjoyed our stay a lot. Would definitely stay there again. Miranda was very responsive. Highly recommend this place.

This place was excellent! Everything was clean and well stocked, we never felt like we were missing anything. The screened porch had an amazing view and the fire pit was positioned perfectly below the deck area for everyone to enjoy. The couch was extremely comfortable and if you reclined it, you felt like you could sit there forever. Everything was just perfect. We really enjoyed it all and would love to come back another time. Thank you!

Thanks for the great review, Amir! We are thrilled to hear that you and your group enjoyed your stay. As for the couch, seriously, sometimes I don't feel like getting off it too. Come back anytime! We'd love to have you all again.

Since I was a young girl digging for crawdads in the unspoiled creeks of rural Ohio, I’ve found my true north in the woods. My partner and I purchased our cabin in 2014 as a place where we could get away from the crazy of the city and to foster our young daughter’s appreciation for nature. We’re thrilled to offer this special place for you to unwind and reconnect.
