Beautiful, secluded location. Our whole stay was super relaxing. The listing doesn't even mention all the comfortable little touches like a towel warmer, rain umbrellas or stocked keurig.

Jack Russell's Ridge is a really cute place, within a short drive of Berkeley Springs. House has everything you would need, just bring some food and you're good to go! Even if the weather keeps you stuck inside the entertainment system will give you plenty of enjoyment!

Very nice place, very nice stay and not so far from Washington for a one day visit.

Claudio's place was nice and accommodating. It was quiet and scenic. Not quite as close to the trails as we'd like but close enough to do a few. There is not much to do in Berkeley Springs but we found our way around, thanks to Claudio's information book we found a few nice places to eat and drink. Our dogs liked his porch and fenced in yard. They also enjoyed his backyard and wooded area. However they did find a broken window out back of his place that we were afraid they would get cut on and trash and paint cans behind the shed which we were not so happy about and notified Claudio of the issues. Although he did not correct the issues right away, he assured us that he would.All in all the place was a very nice place to stay. Very accommodating to us and our dogs just not quite enough to do in the area that we don't think we'll be back.

This is a charming home that has all the accommodations needed for a very pleasant vacation in the beautiful mountains of WV. The porch has very nice tables and chairs. The furniture inside is comfortable and the bedding is cozy. The kitchen is nicely stocked with everything you need. Berkeley Springs is a quaint town with lots of fun shopping and has some really good restaurants. Claudio, our host, was very communicative and gave us great information about the area. We also greatly appreciate being able to take our dog with us. We had a lovely vacation and would definitely rent this home again.

About Claudio

We are married and live in the D.C area. We love for you to be guests at our cabins.

On our first visit to Berkeley Springs, we were drawn to the character and charm that the town offers, and we soon found ourselves in the office of a local realtor ready to make an offer on a cabin near Cacapon State Park. The cabin had “good bones” but had been neglected by the previous owners. We spent the next year renovating “Retriever’s Retreat” ( and making it into our haven from our hectic schedules and pace of life in DC. Soon thereafter, we found another home in need of some TLC, and we quickly began work on “Jack Russell’s Ridge.” ( As pet lovers, we are pleased to be able to share our pet-friendly homes with your family, and we hope that your time in Berkeley Springs offers you a chance to enjoy the company of family and good friends.
