About the Property
Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4)
Relax in the rocking chairs on the back porch overlooking the Potomac River and Maryland Heights, or have your morning coffee while sitting on the comfy Adirondack chairs on the huge, secluded front porch. Gaze out over the river gap--the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers--from the sitting area in the spacious, beautifully decorated upstairs bedroom.
Freshly renovated and painted, this delightful cottage is tastefully appointed and has central A/C and heat, a full kitchen, a cozy and romantic gas fireplace, and intimate proportions that are ideal for a special weekend or week away.
Walk to nearby Jefferson Rock, where Thomas Jefferson declared the view "worth a trip across the Atlantic," and hike a little of the Appalachian Trail, which passes just 200 yards from the cottage. Or walk down to the historic lower town and take a dip in the Shenandoah. Cross the footbridge over the Potomac to the Maryland side of the river and you are on the C&O Canal towpath--a 184.5-mile-long national park that offers fabulous biking and hiking. Or try rafting, tubing, kayaking, or canoeing with one of the local outfitters. You will want to explore the gift shops, bookstores, restaurants and ice cream parlors that are part of the Harpers Ferry historical park, or try golfing or wine-tasting at local courses and vineyards. First-class thoroughbred racing is just four miles away at the Charles Town Race Track, and the Summit Point car races are about a 15-minute drive.
*Please note: due to the steep, curved stairs in our historic cottage, we do not recommend our property for families with toddlers or persons with limited mobility.
