We built this house and knew we would love the country setting, woods and pond. We wanted it to be a place we would not have to go anywhere to have fun and never run out of things to do and we think we accomplished that. We are full time Realtors and thought... why not make our real estate work for us and meet new friends in the process.
Debbie purchased this House in 2005

What a nightmare! Black mold on ceiling , wall & shower curtain in bathroom. Black wasps in entryway
Not what the pictures showed! It was very poorly maintained. Very cluttered and not enough storage for the basics such as linens and kitchen items. Bed linen was old and thread bare. Kitchen dishes looked like they came from a thrift store. No vent or fan in bathroom; also no towel rack . Missing light fixtures in ceilings and fire alarm that was disabled. The light switch for the interior was about 15 feet from the entry. The parking area was a joke! We had to park in the trees so when we came back at night it was very dangerous due to numerous tripping hazards. The light they had out there was right at eye level and blinded you so you couldn't see where you were going. There was a nest of black wasps right by the entryway and my husband was stung numerous times. The only TV hooked to cable was in the bedroom and was small and had uncomfortable seating. The bed pillows were either flat or lumpy. The furnishings were old and worn. This definitely was one of our worst home away experiences.
Wow...very disappointing to see this review as I really try hard to make sure everything is super clean and make sure our guest are comfortable .I wish these guest would have expressed their dissatisfaction while they were here so that I address them instead of waiting until they checked out just to complain. I guess one bad review in seven years isnt bad considering that this couple would not be happy anywhere they go. Our home is very well maintained. We have two large dressers in both bedrooms that have all empty drawers to put there things in but hmmm...I guess they did not happen to see them right out in the open in each room
We use 400 count sheets. We do have mismatched dishes but none that are worn or as they said thrift looking. There is no fan in the bathroom however we do have a window to crack open which they must have not notices as well. We have a 3 tier shelving unit in the bathroom for the fresh fluffy towels and a rack with 5 hooks over the door to hang wet towels on.(i guess they prefer a towel rack which we dont have) No clue what they meant by missing ceiling fixture?? There is a fire alarm in EACH and EVERY room. I did move one of them closer to the kitchen so they must have saw where it used to be. We have two flood lights that light up the whole half of the side yard for clear viability in dark. It could have easily been adjusted had they mentioned it to me. They did encounter a bees nest which as SOON as they told me I went to the store and bought bee spray and within 2 hours I had sprayed and removed the nest. I guess I am supposed to be held responsible for Mother Nature lol. The parking area is private and shaded area from the trees. That area has a dawn to dusk light. Most people love that it is private and that there are several spots to park in. I am assuming they did not make it out of their bedroom because all of the rooms in the apartment have cable except one and it had a dvd/vhs player hooked up. I could have easily taken the cable box out of the bedroom they were not using and hooked it up to that TV. They had 15 pillows to choose from and I have several different kinds but they needed to go into the other bedroom a few feet away to pick one. They should have brought their "Mr. Pillow" I guess PICKY is the nicest thing I can say they are. I am so thankful for all the other wonderful guests that we have had in the last 7 years that have been so grateful to stay with us and given us 5 stars and have had wonderful memories
Great location - perfect for an American history trip with the family
We wanted a place for our family of six that was centrally located to a bunch of historical spots - this was it. Less than an hour from Gettysburg, Baltimore, DC, Mt Vernon, Harpers Ferry, 2 hours to Hershey, 2.5 hours to Philadelphia. Plus it was big enough with enough to do so that we could have fun "rest" days as well. Debbie was very accommodating. Our stay here was a big reason our 3-week family trip was the most memorable vacation we've ever had.
This property had everything we needed with plenty of room for our short stay while we were in the area. Absolutely beautiful setting with great accommodations! We loved the place. The theater room was great along with the table tennis and air hockey table. We are looking forward to revisiting this home again.
We loved having you stay. You guys were great and left the place so tidy and clean. You are welcome back anytime!!
What a fun & relaxing place to stay!
The downstairs apartment was the perfect set up for our 2 night family gathering. Our multi-generational group consisted of 3 adult couples + an infant. We merged together from PA, CO, & MD. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub, watching football in the in-home theater room (including fresh popcorn!), and visiting with their horse, "Doc". Due to hunting season, we did not venture into the wooded or pond areas of the property. It was an easy drive to Harper's Ferry where we checked in on the Appalachian Trail thru hikers that came thru after our son-in-law (Trail name = Long John). We took advantage of the beautiful weather with outdoor dining & awesome tunes playing at the-music-cafe.com
