Shepherdstown cottage description

Perchasta Farm Cottage is the first “green,” sustainable vacation home rental in Jefferson County West Virginia. The cottage is located on 32 rural acres of managed timberland just outside of Shepherdstown, WV and co-located with one of the “greenest” homes in Jefferson County.

We welcome you to come and stay in Perchasta Farm Cottage. Relax in the sophisticated country elegance of the cottages' décor, enjoy the outdoor environment and explore the surrounding area. This 2 bedroom cottage is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy a short weekend visit or an extended stay.

Nearby Shepherdstown, home to Shepherd University, offers much in the way of history, cultural entertainment, recreation, fine dining and unique shopping opportunities. Of particular interest for Civil War history buffs is the cottages' close proximity to both Antietam Battlefield and Harpers Ferry.

The Contemporary American Theater Festival, The Goose Route Dance Festival, The American Conservation Film Festival, The Mountain Heritage Arts & Crafts Festival (Spring & Fall), Shepherdstown Street Festival, Over the Mountain Studio Tour, and numerous parades and events throughout the year are just a few of the things to see and do in and around Shepherdstown.

                  About the owner: After extensive personal travel and military moves, Shepherdstown is the place to which we always dreamed of returning. Following retirement from active duty in the US Coast Guard we have made Shepherdstown our permanent home and we look forward to hosting you here at Perchasta Cottage so you can experience the many things that have made us fall in love with Shepherdstown and this property again and again.

                  Why the Owner Chose Shepherdstown:
                  The beautiful, rural setting and numerous cultural and historical opportunities make Shepherdstown the ideal place to visit.

                  Come stay with us at Perchasta Cottage and learn about all the things that make our vacation home rental 'green.' We also offer home tours of the new energy efficient home we built on an adjacent property. The unique 'green' features of this home will surprise and delight. We love sharing our experience with others about green building, the different systems we chose to install in the home and our reasons for doing so. If this is an area of interest for you, please don't hesitate to ask for a tour.
