Hotels are for the birds! Vacation in style at Starling House—a cozy, midcentury modern–inspired, woodland bird–themed nest perched among the hickory and poplar trees in tranquil Coolfont Mountainside Community. You’ll find yourself happy as a lark sleeping in any of the three well-appointed bedrooms; cooking in the fully equipped kitchen; or hanging out with family and friends in the spacious living room, where there are plenty of books, games, and puzzles on hand for your enjoyment. Need to spread your wings? Just outside you’ll find your own private five-person hot tub, a comfy screened-in deck, front and back porches with rocking chairs and a picnic table, a charcoal grill, and plenty of driveway to set up Starling House’s cornhole set. Or fly the coop to enjoy Coolfont’s tennis and basketball courts, tot-lot, recreation field, hiking trails, and swimming pool and hot tub (open Memorial Day through Labor Day). You needn’t fly far for good grub and drinks to wash it down your gullet—the Coolfont Treetop Restaurant and Berkeley Springs Brewery are right outside the community. More dining, shopping, and entertainment are minutes away in downtown Berkeley Springs. Starling House is also minutes from beautiful Cacapon Resort State Park, where you can play golf on a course designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., hike miles of trails of varying difficulty, ride horseback, swim, fish, go boating, and more. Like the lonesome whippoorwill who sounds too blue to fly, you’ll find yourself sad to leave Starling House when vacation is over. That’s why many Starling House guests keep coming back again and again, like the yellow-billed cuckoo who returns each spring to wild, wonderful West Virginia.
