Handicap Accessible, Pet Friendly, Fire Pit, WiFi, DirecTV & Blu-ray/CD Player
Hello and welcome to Buck Haven, I'm Janie and I manage Buck Haven and the Dove's Nest for Cy who is the builder and owner of the cabins. Cy also built our home and we couldn't be any happier with it. We are neighbors and the best of friends. Cy built both cabins in 2016. Cy has been building custom homes in the Berkeley Springs area for almost 40 years. He is great with a hammer and nails but doesn't know how to turn on a computer so that is where I pick up for him. I live a half mile away from Buck Haven and Cy lives about a mile away so if you need anything or have a problem we can quickly respond to your needs.
Why Janie chose Berkeley Springs
Cy and Janie both love living in Berkeley Springs just down the road from Buck Haven. The cabin is located in the historic spa community of Berkeley Springs which is one of the best known art-filled communities on the east coast. Gently nestled into the West Virginia Mountains our getaway is located about 90 minutes from the Washington/Baltimore metropolitan area it is an easy travel from the BWI and IAD airports as well as our regional airport HGR in Hagerstown Maryland. With close by warm mineral springs, galleries, antique shops, massage therapist, holistic therapist, live music, theater and a year round schedule of festivals it makes this the prefect vacation getaway.

One of our best family vacations yet!
Our family of four had a wonderful kick-off-to-summer vacation at Buckhaven! We all agreed that it was one of our favorite trips so far. The cabin itself is BEAUTIFUL and perfect in every way. Janie has thought of everything you might need. The kitchen is fully outfitted with every appliance and doodad you could possibly need. We grilled on the deck and cooked several meals while we were there. My kids loved exploring in the woods and found turtles, deer, frogs, salamanders, newts - and even saw a few hummingbirds. The cabin is perfectly remote but also close to the downtown area of Berkeley Springs and only 5-10 minutes from Cacapon State Park, which is a really lovely and well-kept area. We drove down from the Philadelphia area, and it was well worth the trip. We look forward to coming back soon!
The word “cabin” certainly does not describe this heavenly getaway which was perfect in every aspect.
We did not know what to expect coming up the hilly driveway, but once at the top, there was our “Home away from Home”. Beautiful!
It rained every day we were there, but it did not keep us from just sitting back, watching the fireplace, enjoying the peace and quiet.
Would we be coming back? You bet!
We enjoy every moment at the cabin! it was super clean, so so beautiful, kidfriendly, perfect for a fantastic family holiday! Janie was an extraordinary host! we even got a welcome gift :)
Quiet and relaxing
I wish all vacation rentals were as well equipped, clean, and beautiful as Buck Haven.
Loved the cabin and the deck area was perfect
My wife and I spent the weekend at Buckhaven. The cabin was perfect. I cannot say enough great things about the amenities, furniture, layout and quality of the construction. The cabin is private and surrounded by beautiful woods. The location is close to the town and nearby restaurants. We will be staying here again!
