Property description

Welcome to Elk Branch Lodge, a sprawling two story country home that easily accommodates family reunions, group gatherings, or romantic getaways for two. The Lodge is not just someone's second home in a busy commercial development. It is a special private place in the country, nestled in the mountains surrounded by thousands of acres of forest. It is also a working horse farm with pastures and wooded trails. There is plenty of room inside for everyone to come together or to spread out into smaller groups. The natural setting will draw you outdoors where the wildlife, mountains and sunsets will work their magic on you.

In addition to the many multi family/friends groups that we host each year, we also regularly accommodate church retreats and corporate outtings. The spacious grounds and decks provide ample room for group discussions, team building or quiet reflection.

The lodge is an easy drive from four National Parks and the historic villages of Berkeley Springs, Shepherdstown, Charles Town and Martinsburg. Unique diners and restaraunts, artisan shops , antiques, farmer's markets and even a casino round out the local attractions. We will help you discover whatever peaks your interest.

Bring your mountain bike, canoe, fishing rod, hiking gear, and binoculars, and enjoy all that the outdoors has to offer. We have a well marked trail system for horseback riding, mountain biking, and hiking. Adjacent public land offers miles hiking trails and a 205 acre fishing and canoeing lake. Local streams and rivers provide some excellent fishing and canoing opportunities and whitewater rafting and tubing is available in the nearby Shenandoah River.

We are a short country drive from Interstate 81 and less than two hours from the Baltimore/DC area.
