Beautiful Place in the Woods for a Get Together

  • 5 of 5
We recently (Nov 09') spent a weekend at "Quiet Haven" with all of our extended family - nine of us. What a great setup for just getting together to just hang out. Great fireplace with couches to relax in and carry on the fire side chats. Plenty of room for game playing, guitar playing and sleeping. Towels and Linens are provided - that was a nice benefit. The weather was nice so we played some tennis and basketball as well as hiked up through the woods. Lastly, the owners were a pleasure to work with - very nice folks. I highly recommend the place for a family get-together as we had or for multiple couples looking for a nice get away destination.

Preventative Maintenance is not their priority

  • 1 of 5
This home was appealing because the price is lower than most that are rented through other local Berkeley Springs agencies, and we have been on a tight budget. But after five summers of renting here, we will not be back. Whether it is the refrigerator, the washing machine, the air conditioning, the sliding doors, the screen doors, the door locks, the window blinds, etc. it is always something that does not work. Whether it is a covered porch covered in year's of bird droppings (that after three years, I finally spent two hours scrubbing so that my kids could play there without my worrying about disease), a front porch piled with rotting garbage, everything over eye level covered in dust, air filters that are so filthy that even the HVAC technician was appalled, etc. there is always something else that the cleaning crew did not attend to.

This year, the AC did not work upon our arrival. It was my guess (from the fact that the heat was set for "emergency heat") that the compressor has not worked for many months. It took two calls, two texts, an e-mail and six hours to get through to the owner. Then it took 48 more hours to the owner to send a service company to fix it. That company provides 24/7 emergency service, but the owner selected not to even have them come out and investigate.

After our trip I requested partial refund equal to one day's weekend rental fee (we were without AC for two days and six hours). The owners responded as follows:
"It's unfortunate that the air conditioning unit wasn't working when you arrived and we do apologize for the inconvenience."
They did not even address my request, but rather argued with me that the two hours I spent supervising and assisting the AC guy was not necessary. If it were me, I would be thrilled to have a renter take the time to be help the repair man. In this case, their response was:
"The company we called to make the repair is a reputable company and was quite capable of making the repair without supervision or assistance."
If they were so capable, then why make my family suffer in the heat and the humidity for 48 hours rather than have them come right out to fix what turned out to be a wire that had shorted out (due to a stupidly performed repair the last time by a different "capable" company).

Its your money, its your vacation. If you want the best price in town, then this is the house for you. If you want stress-free enjoyment and attentive owners, I'd look elsewhere.

Owner's Response: This review was submitted by Lou Carloni who has been a guest at Quiet Haven for 5 years. Last year Mr. Carloni was there during an area power outage (of which we obviously have no control over) and we refunded over $300 for the inconvenience. Unfortunately this year upon Mr. Carlonis arrival, the air conditioning was not in working order; although it was working just 2 weeks prior during a previous guest stay. The calls from Mr. Carloni were placed on a Saturday afternoon when we did not have access to our phone since we were in the middle of a wedding. Once we made contact with Mr. Carloni I contacted a service company who could not be on site until Sunday afternoon and recommended they come on Monday due to the availability of repair parts if needed. The service company arrived on Monday and was able to repair the unit and get in back in working order.

We do pride ourselves on the beauty of our home and we have created a comfortable environment for our guests. As you will see with our other reviews, many people, over 100 rentals, have enjoyed their stay with us. Quiet Haven is not only a rental retreat but a place where our family can go to relax and enjoy the beautiful mountains of West Virginia.

Fantastic home, wonderful community, great access

  • 5 of 5
We have already booked our vacation for the third summer in a row at this home. The owners are very easy to work with; the home is comfortable and well equipped; the community has a wonderful pool, baby pool, hot tub, tot lot, and tennis courts; the location is 10 minutes from downtown (churches, restaurants, parks, springs, galleries, spas, etc.), and 20 minutes from Cacapon State Resort (where there is a lake with a beach and paddle boats). So much to do, such a reasonable price; What a great value! We come back every summer.

Great place for large extended family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here more than 5 years ago but my kids still talk about the fantastic vacation in Berkeley Springs and all of the fun they had in the house playing cards and exploring the woods with their cousins. I would highly recommend this cabin and hope to come back sometime soon!!!

DIFFICULT OWNERS

  • 1 of 5
The house was ok but we found dealing with the owner very difficult. It took almost 2 months and repeated phone calls to get our money back. The contract stated that the deposit would be returned in 2 weeks. The owner said that leaking faucet was our fault and kept part of the deposit. We will never rent from these owners again!

Owner's Response: We have been renting our home for over 4 years and have never had difficulties with a renter. We have customers that have been repeatedly renting from us year-after-year. Our home has been furnished with wonderful antiques and quilt bedding to give our renters a warm, cozy feeling of "home away from home". We take great pride in sharing our home and appreciate that all of our renters over the years have taken great care with our things while visiting our home. The house is immaculate because of this. We recognize that in renting our home we will absorb the cost of normal wear and tear over the years, and we are constantly maintaining our property to insure it is always in A+ condition. We believe the pictures on the website indicate this. In this particular incident, the kitchen faucet was broken off the sink base resulting in water damage in the kitchen cabinet. Our cleaning service reported the damage to us the day after the rental family had checked out. We had to make a special trip to the house to repair the faucet (3 hours round trip) and clean up the water damage. As well, there were dark green stains left on the family room carpet and coffee table that had to be scrubbed repeatedly to remove. There are still remnants of the stain on the coffee table. Our policy has always been to return the security deposit within two weeks of vacating our home. In this case, there were damages requiring repairs and the deposit was returned once the repairs were completed - 4 weeks from the time of vacancy.
