Welcome to Lancaster's Lair! Our mountain-view chalet is located in the award-winning Cacapon South community, less than 10 miles from downtown Berkeley Springs. With four bedrooms and three baths, this custom built three-story chalet will accommodate eight guests in comfort. Whether you are looking for the ideal 'home away from home' for an extended family vacation or the perfect setting for a fun and relaxing weekend getaway with friends, Lancaster's Lair is a terrific choice.
The chalet boasts plenty of modern amenities. Relax in front of the oversized stone wood-burning fireplace while enjoying your cable programming on a 42-inch flat screen television. We also have wireless internet service and central heat and air for your convenience. For fun, enjoy the ping-pong table or the additional 55-inch flat screen television and DVD player in the recreation room. If the outdoors call, gather on the covered porch which wraps around to an expansive deck.
Meals are easy to prepare in the chalet's full kitchen, complete with dishwasher, microwave, and cooking utensils, or you may choose to use the outdoor grill for barbecuing. If you do not want to prepare your meal, the lodge is nearby for a buffet breakfast, quick lunch, or a relaxing dinner. Or treat yourself to a fabulous meal at one of the many superb restaurants in town-- we're happy to offer suggestions!
Lancaster's Lair is within walking distance of a Robert Trent Jones Sr. golf course as well as the local lake for swimming, fishing, and boating. A game of tennis or basketball is also close by, as is horseback riding. Scenic nature trails for hiking wind throughout the area, and in the winter months, downhill and cross-country skiing and snow tubing are nearby.
The town of Berkeley Springs offers a delightful blend of mineral spas, art, and antiques. Civil War battlefields, the C&O Canal, Paw Paw Tunnel, Berkeley Spring State Park, Cacapon Resort State Park, and Coolfont Resort are also close, giving you plenty of sightseeing opportunities. Special events throughout the year include the Apple Butter Festival and the Festival of the Waters.
The Lancaster Family has enjoyed the Berkeley Springs area for generations! They have enlisted me (Sarah) to manage their beautiful and relaxing chalet!
This chalet is a perfect retreat from our busy lives... an awesome setting to explore nature, enjoy fine food and fun shopping, and reminisce and laugh with friends and family.
Wake up early and sip your coffee on the expansive deck overlooking Cacapon Mountain or collect the crew for sundowners in the evenings!
First of all I would like to thank you for accommodating us at the last min. We were orginally suppose to go camping in MD at the beach but the hurricane forced us to abandone those plans and I desperately needed a place. i was calling people non-stop from wed to thurs to basically say hey i need your place for tonight. Most that we liked were booked. When I had almost given up hope your place came through. Thank you for allowing us to come thurs night and leave late sunday.
The place by far exceeded our expectations. It was clean and had a nice layout, roomy and very comfortable. It was truly a relaxing weekend. Everything at the house was in great shape and we had no issues with anything. The place and area was just as you described it. We really noticed the attention to detail like including towels and soap/shampoo in the bathroom that goes a long way. Also you made it easy to pay for the place and you made me feel comfortable about what I was renting.
Having the park across the street was a big plus. We were able to play golf and go hiking. You will def here from us again. We may try to get out there in the winter and do some skiing and/or go back in the spring.
The house was an anticipated from the pictures. The top floor has two bedrooms, including the one with 2 twin beds. Then the main floor has a third bedroom, and the 4th is in ground floor. That arrangement worked out great for our group; every couple/family had their own space. Note if you have any guests that aren't good with stairs; both the stirs to the front door and the top floor are a little steep.
The property was clean,well stocked with supplies and adequate for all our needs. The house lived up to the description stated in the listing. We did rent bicycles in Maryland for a ride on the C&0 canal towpath. Also took a drive and explored Harper's Ferry National Park. Would recommend this rental to others.
Wonderful experience. the cabin has everything our family needed and is located next to wooded areas that added privacy. We hope to return, maybe when the trees fill in.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. Our family has requested we make a stay at Lancaster's Lair a Christmas Family Tradition. The property was as listed, but exceeded our expectations. The views from the house and the walk around porch were incredible. Our family of six adults and 3 young children were very comfortable in the four bedrooms. The house was very clean and kitchen items were provided. We prepared all family meals at the Chalet including a turkey dinner Christmas day. We enjoyed hiking in the Cacapon State Park located within minutes of the property. The information on restaurants and activities in the area the manager sent ahead of time was very helpful. The four year old and one year old enjoyed the playroom. The entire family enjoyed the ping pong table. The washer and dryer were very nice as there was an infant with us and frequent change of clothing was required. There were three TVs but except for a few football games there was no time for TV. Everyone did appreciate wifi access. A stop at Food Lion on the drive in was handy to pick up supplies and the little gas station close by had milk and coffee. Everyone wants to return to visit the Spas. A very nice family retreat with time for visiting, enjoying each other and appreciating nature.
We had a great time and enjoyed our stay at Lancaster's Lair. The property is clean and well maintained.
Attractive house in a beautiful neighborhood. Very quiet and peaceful. My 3-year-old grandson had a blast with all the toys in the basement. The reason for the 3-star rating is that almost everyone ended up with a backache from the poor mattresses.
Just across from Cacapon State Park-which boasts a lake for swimming, boating, shooting range, fishing, horseback riding and golf. Whitetail Ski Resort and historic Harper's Ferry are less than an hour away.
Other Activities: shopping, cross country skiing, health spa, basketball, bowling, horseshoes
