The cabin was perfect! It was tempting to stay here all day rather than go into town! Jim thought of everything to make our stay ideal!

Jim's cabin was absolutely fantastic. It is clean, well cared for, and situated in the woods not too far from a quaint little town of Berkeley Springs. It is secluded and surrounded by trees that really make you feel like you have your own little slice of isolation while not being too far from great things to do. Also, the screened in porch was a great place to spend time "outdoors" when it was raining on our first night there. The other night we were there, we enjoyed the large deck and fire pit. Further, it is just 10 minutes or so from some really great hiking. Overall, I would not hesitate to visit this cabin again. Jim's communication and hospitality also helped make the trip great. He kept us informed about the cabin, the happenings in Berkeley Springs, and ensured we had everything we needed to make our stay great. Don't miss out on this great little cabin!

Moss Hill was everything we could have hoped for! Secluded, relaxing... Altogether breathtaking. It made for a wonderful honeymoon!

Jim's Moss Hill cabin is more beautiful than the photos suggest. The back deck with the hot tub is heavenly. We had planned to go hiking, actually, but decided to stay back and enjoy the deck all day instead. Arrival was easy, even at midnight, and the cabin was very clean. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking to get away for a weekend in the woods.

Jim was a fantastic host! He left the cabin warm and inviting with music playing and wine prepared for us. The cabin was perfectly clean and well stocked with everything we needed from towels to movies to kitchen necessities. We loved hiking at Cacapon and utilizing the hot tub, and plan to return soon!

This is a beautiful place - very clean, not necessarily posh but very comfortable and charming and has everything you need. If you are looking for starry nights, you'll want to look elsewhere, because you are in the forest here and the trees block out most of the stars. My only other beefs are small - if the sun isn't cooperating, it's pretty dark in there, and you have a variety of small lamps, but if you know that you need it bright, this may not be the place for you. Finally, the couch is comfy but one of those slippy ones where it seems like you have to keep fixing the cushions to keep it from falling apart. All that being said, this was a beautiful home away from home, and we would love to come back. The hammock is divine, the bed is comfortable, the grounds are beautiful, and Jim is an ideal host - always quick to respond to queries, and we arrived to find a thank you note with a bottle of wine and a beautifully set table - what a great welcome! And the privacy can't be beat. Overall, would recommend to anyone who is fine with a place that without sun is a bit on the darker side.

If Moss Hill weren't on airbnb, I would call it "Berkeley Springs' Best Kept Secret"! This was my first time using airbnb, however, it was the best rental experience I've had through various companies. Communicating with Jim was easy, and he was very responsive. The rental was clean and cozy. I loved you could make your own dinners in the perfect-sized kitchen. Hot tub was well-maintained and clean. We will be coming back!!

Jim User ProfileJim is a superhost.

Hi! I've enjoyed Moss Hill for nearly 8 years, spending many weekends relaxing and renovating the cabin to make it a perfect getaway. I love sharing it with my friends and family, and now with Airbnb guests. Now, I've added Horizon Hill for myself and others to enjoy!

A 30-something professional with western roots, I've enjoyed spending the past 14 years living in the Washington DC region, working for community banks, traveling, and spending time with my Jack Russell Terrier, Phil.
