About the Property

Chateau / Country House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Beautiful mountain lodge on scenic horse farm in rural Montgomery County, MD, 45 minutes from Washington, D.C. Golfer's paradise. Spa facilities.

Get away from the busyness of downtown Washington, and enjoy the peace of this lodge overlooking a rolling pasture of horses grazing by the fish-filled pond. The 3-story house includes 4 bedrooms, 3 and a half baths with jacuzzi's in each one, an elegant dining room, 2 full kitchens, a spa room with massage table and infrared sauna, a scenic greatroom with a 30 foot fireplace. The library on the 3rd floor opens to the Great Room on the 2nd level with a huge expanse of windows showing the magnificent scenery. Choose from hundreds of books, and go down to read in front of the Great Room 30-foot fireplace, or by the Wood stove.
There is also a great media room with a 70-inch flat screen television with comfortable theater seating.. You can have fun preparing food in either of the two kitchens! For exercise, we have exerstrider poles, rebounders (small mini trampolines), and yoga mats with videos to follow along in the media room. Or you may choose to fish in the well-stocked pond, or take horseback riding lessons from our on-site trainers!

FOR GOLFER'S: Raspberry Falls Golf and Hunt Club was a very well maintained club and part of the experience is traveling to the course and crossing on White's Ferry, it is like going back in time. The course is only 8 1/2 miles from the home.

The P.B. Dye Club is another great course and very challenging. In typical P.B. Dye fashion there are plenty of railroad ties that you can bounce your ball off on a bad shot. This is 15 miles from the house but seems closer, as it a nice country drive.

Whiskey Creek Golf club is about 15 miles from the house. It is very, very nice. Very well maintained with a lot of elevation changes

There is also easy access to hiking, canoeing, polo matches, winery tours, antiquing, biking or trail riding either your own or a rented horse, and public golf. We can help you find caterers to serve you meals at home, or help you find just the right restaurant for your outings.
