My wife and I are relocating from Florida for her to start work in a job 4-5 miles north of Shepherdstown.

We are dog people and will be looking to hopefully find a rental home on 1+ acres (for dogs to run etc) within a 45 min commute of Shepherdstown for under approx $1,800/ month.

Can anyone throw out some suggestions as to good areas to look at? We do plan to fly up for a weekend to look around but I haven't a clue where to even start looking.

We don't have kids but we are lookking for a house 1500 sqft or larger with a 2 car garage.

Many thanks for any input!

There are lots of options within a 45 minute commute, but really no reason to be more than 15 minutes away and still be within your price range. I pm'd you some info. and gave a link to a database that has the rentals listed by realtors. You can use the map search feature to expand the search area out from your place of employment. For ease of commute you probably want to limit your search to the north east corner of Berkeley County and the northern third of Jefferson.

This is a link to the Berkeley County newspaper which may have rental info: journal-news.net | News, sports, jobs, community information for Martinsburg - The Journal
Here's a link to a classified paper called 'The Buyer's Guide' which may also have info you can use.
Buyers Guide - Martinsburg, WV - Berkeley Jefferson and Morgan County - Buyers Guide
The Jefferson County paper doesn't have an active website with listings and info.
