Location

Our lodge is within 10 miles of the Whitetail Skii resort which also has a signature 18 hole golf course. the Mercersburg Academy is also appoximately 10 miles away. Many Civil War sites surround this area. We have a stocked pond on the property for casual fishing. Our lodge is positioned at the top of our 40 acre property and is surrounded by woodlands and fields. There are no other visible buildings nearby except for our own farm house at the bottom of the property. We are truly isolated

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We live in Frederick, MD about 50 minutes away. We used to spend weekends here but since we have built a similar home near Frederick we do not use the lodge anymore.

Why the Owner Chose Mercersburg:
This lodge was a little bit of heaven to us, and we now want it to be enjoyed by others. Please enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, the scenic views and the comfortable amenities.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
The rear porch extends all the way across the back of the lodge where one can sit and enjoy a view of the Tuscarora Ridge of the Appalachian mountains.
