Property description

This comfortable country cottage is situated on a quiet rural road in a wooded setting on the owner’s property. A covered porch offers the opportunity to relax outdoors. A long level road makes for enjoyable strolls or bike rides. Deer, turkey, and small wildlife are regularly seen in the surrounding area. Whether reading, writing, or resting the peaceful setting invites relaxation.

The cottage is located only minutes away from the Mason-Dixon Line and the Appalachian Trail, where you can day hike to nearby parks or refresh and resupply on a longer trail journey. Stays at the cottage make for easy visits to historic Civil War sites including Gettysburg, Antietam, South Mountain, & Monterey Battlefields. Other sites within an easy days travel include Harpers Ferry, Lancaster Amish Country, Hershey, Baltimore, & Washington DC. Visitors can also enjoy a wide variety of local attractions including winery tours, events at Ski Liberty and Whitetail or local history.

At the end of your day return home and enjoy the simple single level floor plan that includes a spacious bedroom with a queen size bed, a sleeper sofa in the living area, bath/shower combo, large porch and fully equipped kitchen. Simplicity at its best awaits you for your stay of rest and relaxation.
