'The Lookout' is a fully furnished cottage with a convenient back deck that provides a rare panoramic view of Antietam battlefield. Looking beyond the pastoral battlefield provides one a spectacular 50-mile view extending to the mountains of Western Maryland. Between the awesome sunsets and the abundant wildlife (deer, hummingbirds, hawks, etc.), a perfect place for relaxation.
Conveniently located approximately 70 miles from downtown DC and Baltimore. Less than 25 miles from Frederick and Hagerstown.
“The Lookout” is surrounded by civil war history. While only 10 minutes from Antietam battlefield, several other battlefields are within easy driving distance: South Mountain battlefields - 10 miles, Monocacy battlefield - 25 miles, Harpers Ferry - 15 miles, Gettysburg - 45 miles (retrace Lee’s retreat thru Williamsport). John Brown’s headquarters is less than 10 miles away.
Use Gathland State Park as a starting point for some day hiking on the Appalachian Trail - 6 miles away. Or drive 10 miles over to the C&O canal for some easy hiking or if you bring your bikes – some relaxing bike riding. Either method is a great way to have some fun outdoors - even get some exercise.
Other activities: Outlet shopping in Hagerstown and Gettysburg, antique stores, restaurants - all close by and easy to get to.
