Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed three nights. The cabin was clean and well-maintained. The owners provided detailed information about the cabin and surrounding area; it was very helpful! We rode our bikes on the Western MD Rail Trail on the way to the cabin. We entered the trail in Hancock, MD, which is about 35 miles north of the cabin. From there headed west is a beautiful, flat, paved ride that was breathtaking with the fall foliage about at its peak! We ventured over to Cacapon State Park a couple of times. There are well-marked hiking trails for every skill level there. We also drove to the top of the mountain in the park, where there is a beautiful overlook. From there you can view parts of MD, PA, VA, and of course WV. We had a great romantic dinner at Panorama at the Peak in Berkeley Springs and enjoyed looking around in the little shops there (25 or so miles from the cabin). At the owners' suggestion, we also tried Main St. Grill in Slanesville. The food was excellent and inexpensive.
We took some beautiful photos on this trip. Next time we plan to rent a canoe, and my husband would like to try out the clay shooting range at Cacapon.

Had a wonderful time. Beautiful West Virginia Fall Foliage. It was so quiet and and relaxing. The warm fire was great. The quality family time without the TV or internet. My family truly enjoyed it and I highly recommend a weekend getaway there and we will definitely go back.

Our favorite retreat!

  • 5 of 5
We've been up to the Black Bear Chalet in WVa with family & friends many times & in every season, it's stunning in fall & in snowy winter. We view it as our home away from home. We just returned from another perfect weekend, hiking into the woods, hunting for bear tracks, listening to bard owls & woodpeckers, sitting out under the bright night sky. Add in the cosy wood-burning stove, fireside chats, & toasted marshmallows. We love that our cell phones & internet are in time-out while we are up in the West Virginia hills, more time for nature & friends, books & music. This wooden chalet is beautifully maintained by its owners, with all the amenities, it doesn't get any better.

Kudos from Canada!

This cabin was EXACTLY what I was looking for! A nice quiet retreat in the beautiful trees of WV - with no Wi-Fi or cell reception (ask me how happy I was to tell my boss my BlackBerry wouldn't work there!). I don't even know where to start with what I loved about it - the fairly secluded setting in the woods, relaxing on the fabulous deck, the comfortable bed with fantastic blankets, the swing bench out back where you can relax and read and just take in your surroundings, the beautiful deer coming and going...I could go on for days!
Looking for some things to do? No problem! Paw Paw is just a short drive up the road and there is access to the Potomac River just before you hit the bridge out of town on the right hand side - once in there you will find boat access on the right (if you are facing the river) or if you are like me and on foot, there is a walking trail to the left (I went and sat with my book under the bridge!). Not your thing? Well continue over the bridge and you will come to the access to the Paw Paw Tunnel on your right a little further up. Once there you can park and either go on foot or bike on hundreds of miles of trail and within 0.6 miles of trail you will come to the Paw Paw Tunnel itself (bring a flashlight - there are 3 at the cabin!). There are several other points you can connect with the trail if you drive a little further North as well.
Overall, my main goal was relaxation and I got it! I did go with a friend but would not hesitate to go by myself - whether you are at the cabin or in the small town of Paw Paw, everyone is friendly. While we drove up in to Cumberland for groceries, the Dollar General right in Paw Paw does have a wide variety of snacks, beverages, frozen foods and hundreds of other items (pj's, slippers, mani/pedi supplies - everything really!). I would highly recommend the Black Bear Chalet for anyone looking to get away from the stress of everyday life.

Owner's Response: Cathy, thank you so much for the nice review, we are glad you enjoyed the Black Bear Chalet and we have worked hard to make it a nice quiet place to relax. We believe you are our first guest from Canada and we are honored you chose the Black Bear Chalet to visit during your vacation.

We are glad you were able to visit the nearby Paw Paw tunnel on the C&O Canal towpath. Its amazing to walk though this 3100 foot tunnel built in the 1800's that many people may not know even exists.

Yes, we agree there is value in NOT having cell phone coverage and being able to disconnect and unwind from our busy lives. The sounds of the crickets at night or relaxing on the deck and watching the wildlife is all we need to relax.

Thank you again for staying at the Black Bear Chalet and for taking the time to submit this review. We hope you come back.

Private, perfect fun getaway!!

  • 5 of 5
If your looking for a peaceful relaxing getaway, this is it...the only sounds we heard were the raindrops gently falling through the leaves and birds singing their morning songs! Wonderful, accommodating, quaint! Plenty to do nearby or simply veg out! We did the paw paw tunnel and the Potomac eagle rail to see bald eagles....everything you will need is in this cabin. Bed was extra comfy and no air conditioning was no problem..the cabin was very comfortable with the ceilings fans and mountain breezes. Was actually "chilly" in the mornings on the deck but a hot cup of coffee was the ticket! We had no cell service at the cabin or the towns nearby so a long distant calling card is a must! We will love coming back again! You will love this cabin! Just go!!!
