"Private location, beautiful view, great amenities with games, hot tub and nicely furnished. 2 night stay and loved the sunrise view through the floor to ceiling windows in the great room. Never used the grill or fire pit but if a longer stay, these would have been great for camping in style with the comforts of home. Drive to property was very bumpy on dirt road. Needs to be maintained. Bedroom downstairs was too stuffy as no A/C, fan or screen in windows. Only screens found in windows were on the exterior doors leading into cabin and we didn't want to leave interior doors open while sleeping. Living room and loft had ceiling fans, making for comfort. Very close to ACE White water rafting resort which was our reason for travel and stay over long weekend. No Wifi but that could be a bonus to getting away from it all for pure nature loving and relaxation. Shanna & Paul have a great getaway and were very quick to return call with inquiries about property."

"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!"

"This is the second year we have had the pleasure of staying at Mountain Near House during MLK weekend. It is a wonderful house, with all the amenities, and was perfect for our group! We love the proximity and will most definitely continue to return anytime we're at Timberline. The owners are awesome! Thanks again David and Karen!"

"The cabin was a wonderful place to stay for a ski weekend with friends. We had a group of eight and everyone fit comfortably with room to spare. The cabin was clean, in great shape and had everything we needed. Being minutes from the slopes was a huge benefit and we would absolutely come back again."
