About the owner: This was our summer home when I was growing up, in the late 80's my Mother remolded, and added on to the exiting cabin.
She then sold her home in Arlington, Va and stayed there the rest of her days. I love sharing this place with people for I have lots of fond memories.
Why the Owner Chose Amissville: This house was handed down to me. My siblings and I learned to swim in Lake Wilson and fish in Lake Mosby. We had lots of good times down on the river, We have had a wedding, and numerous pig roasts and of course lots and lots of picnics.
