This 1860 house was moved and restored with added Baths, bedrooms and kitchen. The copper roof, wonderful architectural details plus lovely decorating make this a delight for our guests. We have rented for eight years, and guarantee you will be thrilled with your stay. This is a house for the discriminating traveler, who expects the best. We maintain the property at the highest level- you will not be disappointed. Although a log house, this is not a "rustic" property!!
Great reunion house or business retreat. Small weddings possible- 25 guests or less- small fee (negotiable) for wedding set ups, etc. The house is large enough ( three levels) to spread out and enjoy quiet spaces. We have children's toys and a Pack- and Play, plus games for all. We feature an eclectic book collection for all tastes.
The house is a very old floor plan- you have to go through one BR to access the second BR on the lower floor and the upper floor- this doesn't present any problems for most groups. Beds are all fitted with high end mattresses which are covered in a sanitary wrap for your protection. We want you to feel as though you are in a very upper end accommodation. We have a fire pit for fun and a lovely deck on the rear of the house that is literally in the woods.
Entire house (2300 sq. ft.) accessible, not handicap set-up. There are four steps from the parking area to the main level.
Interaction with guests
wer'e just 1500 feet away on the farm- we try to meet and greet all our guests and solve any problem that arises. This is a very important part of our retirement plan, and we are very serious about providing our guests with an enjoyable, private stay. My host picture is my granddaughter- much prettier than an old man!!
Other things to note
there are plenty of things to do in this area- Gettysburg, Pa., DC, skiing, golf, antiquing, Frederick Md. 15 miles- lovely town, great food. We have farm animals for the kids! The beautiful State and National Parks ( Catoctin) are minutes away- great hiking, swimming, waterfalls. A family oriented zoo is 4 minutes from the house and fun for the kids. We have recently (2016) placed asphalt on this property driveway, and kids have a perfect place for their big wheelers.
We have never experienced anything but the best from our guests- they appreciate the house and truly keep it in great shape. The house was just painted this year on the inside, and the beds are in great shape- very comfortable. You must be 25 years of age to book this property. No pets, please. Have FUN!! We ask that you strip the beds at the end of your stay and place the linens in the lower hallway next to the laundry/boiler room.
