Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Janet and I (Steve) are living and working in the metro Washington DC area. We love DC but we also love our mountain retreat in the Allegheny Mountains. We love the peace, nature, and attractions in the area. We love going to movies at the Majestic Theatre in Gettysburg, attending plays at the Totem Pole Playhouse, hiking and reading on the front porch. Last year, we decided to share our retreat with others and we are so glad that we have. Our guests have said many nice things about our home.

Why the Owner Chose Fayetteville:
We love this location because it is secluded but convenient with shopping 5 miles away (Walmart, Lowes, Target, etc), plenty of good restaurants and theatres nearby. It's plus that were so close to Baltimore and DC,

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
It's very quiet and no one bothers us. We can get up and read for hours and no one knocks on the door, no unwanted phone calls. We find peace here.
