About Debbie

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

Great location - perfect for an American history trip with the family

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

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.

What a fun & relaxing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

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

Very accommodating owner, nice family reunion location.

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed here while attending a wedding celebration. Very clean and neat. The parking area handled our many cars. The owner is well organized, provided beds, bedding, and linens for all, provided helpful information, and was patient with arrivals even into the wee hours of the night. The basement is huge. The cooking area is kitchenette, adequate for breakfast, lunch, snacks, drinks. We found food and anything we needed at the wonderful Wegmans at Germantown, MD just a short drive away. Entry to basement is downhill, probably not suitable for a wheelchair or person with balance issues. Absolutely no complaints, would happily recommend to others.

Wonderful for the price and so accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

The space was pretty awesome, with a theater room, ping pong table, air hockey, and very comfy furniture. One complaint is having the only bathroom located adjacent to the master suite, meaning that for all people not staying in the master suite, going to the bathroom in the middle of the night means going through someone else's bedroom. That being said, the place was lovely, especially for the price, and the owners couldn't have been nicer! They were on point whenever we requested something, and were very understanding. A terrific place to stay overall!

Wonderful Place to Stay and Great People to rent from

  • 5 of 5

My family and I took a house hunting trip and this place was perfect for us. While my wife and I were out looking for a home, the kids and babysitter would stay here and they had plenty of entertainment. My 9 year old loved the movie room, air hockey table, ping pong table and the outdoor activities. My three year old loved all the toys, the horse, and the movie room. I can say my wife and I could take some time for our selves and watch a movie in the movie room or sit in front of the fire place once the kids went to bed. The little kitchenette was great for our needs. The couple has thought of everything a family may need or want while staying there. There is grocery stores, shopping, and places to eat within minutes of the house. This place really is a wonderful place for a family to stay where they will feel safe and at home. The property is exactly has listed, the photos and amenities are accurate, the property is cleaned and well maintain, the owners are very helpful and considerate, and I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to stay in the DC area.
