    Bath (Berkeley Springs) Reviews

    Berkeley Springs is a wonderful place to live if you like being away from it all. We live in a remote area, while it may be far from most places it is very peaceful here.

    The school is excellent at keeping up with what is going on with the students, they call for pretty much everything.

    The town itself is beautiful, but there is not much to do in town and only one grocery store. However, the drive time to another town to do your shopping is not super long and its close to a bigger WV town as well as VA and MD.

    I was hesitant to move here, as there is not much of anything close by, but I have been here almost 2 years and i absolutely love it.
    Review Bath (Berkeley Springs)
    Ive lived here for over 10 years its a lovely place to live. Ive met a lot of my friends here, even my husband the one ive been with for almost 6 years.
    There are some really nice bars/restaurants to go to. They have really good service, and their quality/quantity is great for their prices. I love eating out here.
