The Catlett Gap Homestead is nestled in a valley approximately half way between Winchester and Berkley Springs. The cabin pre-dates the civil war and was a homestead deeded to the Catletts; some of whom still live in the area. At one point the cabin is mentioned in records of confederate troop movements, and apparently Stonewall Jackson himself spent a night inside the cabin during a snow storm. But there are certain creature comforts such as a smart TV, Wi-Fi, HVAC, fireplace, BBQ pit, fire pit, satellite radio, bathroom, fully stocked modern kitchen. Outside burning is only permitted in those two areas and only when risk of forest fire is low. It has 2 bedrooms and a couch, and can sleep up to 9 with 2 guests on an air mattress. Other in-door amenities include a very large stone fire place, a small library of the local wildlife, and other classic novels, as well as a DVD player and a DVD library of nearly 300 movies. There is also a covered front porch with rocking chairs. And there are 4 ponds near the house, two of which are stocked with catfish. Catch and release fishing is permitted. No license required. There is also a cabinet full of board games. Because of the local area, there are lots of fun activities to do year round. For example, in the summer, fishing is great and there are many places near by. In the winter, Whitetail ski resort is only 50 minutes away, and staying at the cabin and driving there is much cheaper than staying at the resort. Cacapon State Park is only 5 miles away and has hiking trails as well as horse back riding, fishing and swimming. Berkley Springs has spas and antique malls as well as good restaurants. Winchester has a zoo that specializes in exotic animals. There is a Food Lion as well as a gourmet butcher shop in Berkley Springs, and there is a new super Walmart in Winchester, depending on which way you go.

Charming, rustic cabin!
Overall satisfied! Cabin was just what we were looking for. Secluded enough but convenient to all that we needed. Anthony was great to work with throughout!
The cabin was very nice, property around the cabin was open, the snow was great.
We enjoyed the cabin, very comfortable, all the amenities you could ask for. The weather, the 10 inches of snow made it all the more enjoyable, plenty of fire wood for both the fire pit out side and the fire place, plenty of charcoal for the grill. We had a great time and may come back. The only down side was 522 it was kinda noise but did quite down at night.
Had a great time. Anthony is very communicative.
Perfect country stay
My husband and I are country outdoor people so the cabin was a perfect fit for us it had everything basic like shower and toilet then some great perks the fire pit and bbq area outside ...just wonderful and we already have plans to come back and bring the kids. We had a blast catching catfish, the grounds are lovely and we plan to make use of the targets next go around! Anthony is the best he was always available and answered my questions.If you want a rustic feel but all the best in modern day amenities this is the place for you.
I wanted to get away — a few days of reading, writing, hiking, chopping stuff down, etc. This place was perfect. Didn’t see another human the entire time. Every amenity necessary for a brief escape.
Loved the property the cabin was beautiful Wish we could have stayed longer
Hey thanks guys. Glad to have you. Thanks for finding rocks for the fire pit.
Not sure where you are coming from, but the fall is an absolutely lovely time to come back. Chilly, no bugs, and the changing foliage makes it delightful.
