We felt like we were family by the end of our meal." Friendly Folks Another story comes from a traveler who had car trouble and was stuck in Berkeley Springs for the day. "I was really stressed out, but the folks at the local garage were amazing. They went above and beyond to get my car fixed and even gave me a ride back to my family at Coolfont. I never would have expected such kindness from strangers."
A family visiting the town for a few days wanted to give their paraplegic brother the chance to experience the natural springs, just like they did. They lifted him out of his chair and lowered him into the water, where he had a great time. However, they had not planned ahead for his needs after getting out of the water, so they went to the Roman Baths for advice. "Without a moment's thought they immediately offered for him to use the spa that had extra space for such a person with disabilities and placed stacks of clean, warm towels in case he needed them." The experience left a lasting impression on them and is a testament to the exceptional customer service found in Berkeley Springs. "By the nature of the mountains, being mobility-challenged is even more disabling, but these folks saw it as an opportunity to help someone who otherwise could never have enjoyed what most folks take for granted in their community."
