"The night we arrived the night sky was the clearest I have ever seen, the hot tub in the snow was a main attraction for my group, pool table, full kitchen, and cozy beds, just added to our enjoyment. We only stayed for three days, two nights but it was worth every penny. Will becoming back in the spring to check out the lake."

"Our stay at this rental was wonderful! The description couldn't be more accurate. The owner was quick to get in touch with us if we had any questions. He sent us suggestions and tips that were great! It is an easy walk to the village. You can easily catch a shuttle outside the leatherbark units if you choose to go further than the village or if you want a ride into the village. Top of the world has amazing views! The unit has everything you could need just bring along some food. From towels to linens and basic things like sugar, baking spray, baggies foil, and all the kitchen wear. Beds were comfortable and unit was quiet! We even fed the deer from the back porch. They ate right from our hand! Will definitely rent from him again!"

Great owners, lovely setting, needs a few updates.
"This is a lovely property, nicely decorated and stocked, with great views. The owners are exceptionally sweet to work with, and the quickly resolved a scheduling issue and issued a prompt refund for the night in question. I do need to share that this cabin is not quite as remote as one might think, which may be a plus or minus for others. There is a road directly in front of the cabin, with moderate traffic. In addition, the street light that comes on at night for safety shines directly into the master bedroom, so some blackout curtains or shades are badly needed here, as well as curtains or shades on the glass fronted door that faces the road and light. Other than the these two issues (the curtains are fixable, the road is not going anywhere!!) I would certainly recommend this property, and the location puts it in easy reach of many local attractions."

"Stayed for 3 nights over the Thanksgiving weekend as our daughter was on duty at Shepherdstown University and we wouldn't miss Thanksgiving with her! The owners were great at corresponding with me and answering any questions I had prior to our stay! When we arrived, we were amazed at how clean and tastefully decorated the cottage was - absolutely beautiful! We felt right at home and the kitchen was completely stocked for a much needed cup of coffee after the 2 hour drive in the snow! We brought our own food, of course, but forgot to bring creamer/sugar and there it was! Loved all the books in the cottage as we are avid readers! The property is gorgeous and their gift of homemade honey (from their own beehives) is the best I have ever had! We had a fun night at the Charlestown Casino and then Thanksgiving dinner at the Bavarian Inn. Had extended family also in town and we all gathered at the cottage after Thanksgiving dinner to watch movies and have some wine! It fit the five of us perfectly for our three nights and had plenty of room for our extended family to comfortably hang out with us for movie night. We also brought a Thanksgiving dinner we had cooked the day before we came out and there was plenty of room in the refrigerator for it and plenty of pots/pans/utensils, etc. to warm it up and have our leftovers throughout our stay! We went to Antietam Battlefield on Friday (a big hit with my teenage nephew and 9 year old niece) and our daughter was our "tour guide." That evening, we went to Shepherdstown for the annual tree lighting at McMurran Hall and the festivities (roasted chestnuts/hot chocolate/bonfire/Mr. and Mrs. Claus/the Grinch)! The kids had a ball, us adults did, too! ;) I can't say enough about the owners and the cottage - perfect in every way and our stay was absolutely wonderful. I will be returning and already have family members (aunts/uncles) interested in coming out to stay at your beautiful cottage and explore Shepherdstown and all of its history and beauty. Keith and Tari, thank you so very much for your hospitality and sharing your beautiful cottage with us! We will be returning!"
