Perfect getaway from DC
We had such a wonderful vacation here. It was so peaceful, clean, secluded, and comfortable. The hammock was AMAZING, the kids loved discovering all the board games and the tree house, and we had lovely walks along the C&O Canal. We went swimming from Snyder's boat launch (my nearly 4 year old and 5 year old kids LOVED it. It was trickier for our crawling 1 year old but we managed just fine), and got delicious ice cream from Nutter's in Sharpsburg. It really was a wonderful getaway from the city, especially after months of being cooped up due to the Covid pandemic. It was great to get away to a place that we felt comfortable in and that had TONS of space to spread out, run, and play, all while keep our distance from others.
We enjoyed the property and our time in the area. The owners were responsive and easy to work with. Thank you!
Absolutely incredible! This was THE vacation I desperately needed.
This home is absolutely incredible. We chose this place for a weekend getaway without the kids for three reasons: location, dog friendly, and hot tub. The location was absolutely perfect – the C&O canal is literally on the doorstep. You are just a few mins drive to Sharpsburg or Shepardstown (or a super easy bike ride there!) and a quick 20 mins or so to Harpers Ferry.
Our four legged friends were welcome with only one rule – not on the furniture – which was just fine with me because it’s the same rule we have at home.
And the hot tub… oh the hot tub. The hot tub was divine – pristinely clean, easy to follow instructions on care, roomy with jets/water feature and best of all – an incredible view. I spent 3 days decompressing in the hot tub, watching the leaves slowly fall from the trees one at a time.
The hosts were wonderful – we had an small issue with check in and called the owner who answered her phone immediately and helped us out very quickly. Once in, we realized the heat had been turned on (it was quite cold) in anticipation of arrival and the hot tub brought up to temp. They couldn’t have made us feel more welcome.
The house was so cozy and CLEAN. It sounds silly to tout cleanliness but I’ve stayed in a lot of vacation rentals that were just disgusting - not here. No, this home is hands down the cleanest, most lovingly decorated and comfortable place I’ve ever stayed. The kitchen – while we didn’t use it much – was well equipped. No issue with the potted water and drinking water was thoughtfully provided.
110% would recommend to a friend and will likely visit again.
So happy you enjoyed your stay! I love this place just as much! Take care, Catherine
It was a wonderful, comfortable home

We were looking for a quiet place to relax, and that is exactly what we got. The beds were comfortable, short walk to the canal and a cute little store with ice cream. Kids playground could use a little work (on hill and didn’t seem super secure) but we didn’t have the kids so we didn’t stress over it. Tons of property and space to spread out.
Bike on the C&O Canal Towpath, canoe/kayak on the Potomac River, Visit the Antietam Battlefield, visit the Charlestown Races and slots (15-20 mintues), Appalacian Trail, Shephardstown, WVa., Harpersferry, Crystal Grottos Caverns, fine dinning, shopping and much more....

About Catherine and David
We have owned the Sharpsburg Country Cottage since 2000. It's our favorite place to spend time as a family. We love hanging out in the yard with our two dogs, Paisley (Golden Retriever) and Willow (Yellow Lab). They love swimming in the River and walking along the Tow Path. The most relaxing time is soaking in the hot tub, you feel like you are in the tree tops! It's something to experience.
Catherine and David purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Catherine and David chose Sharpsburg
It is only 1 hr 15 minutes from Washington DC. It is a great get away from the hustle and bustle. You can truly relax here at the cottage. Take a nap on the hammock or unwind in the hot tub.
What makes this Cottage unique
We fell in love with this property because of its location, only 1 hr from our home in Silver Spring, MD. We love long walks with the dogs on the Tow Path which is just across the street. There is a small country store two doors down where you can walk and get ice cream. One of the first things we do is walk down to the river and take a dip. We are five minutes from Antietam and close to many other local attractions. We would spend every weekend in the country if we could. The cottage is fully equipped as if it were our primary residence. Our lives have become very busy so we don't get to spend as much time there as we would like, so we have decided to share our wonderful home with others. ENJOY!!
