The Lookout' is a fully furnished cottage with a convenient back deck that provides a rare panoramic view of Antietam battlefield. Looking beyond the pastoral battlefield provides one a spectacular 50-mile view extending to the mountains of Western Maryland. Between the awesome sunsets and the abundant wildlife (deer, hummingbirds, hawks, etc.), a perfect place for relaxation.

“The Lookout” is surrounded by civil war history. While only 10 minutes from Antietam battlefield, several other battlefields are within easy driving distance: South Mountain battlefields - 10 miles, Monocacy battlefield - 25 miles, Harpers Ferry - 15 miles, Gettysburg - 45 miles (retrace Lee’s retreat thru Williamsport). John Brown’s headquarters is less than 10 miles away.

Use Gathland State Park as a starting point for some day hiking on the Appalachian Trail - 6 miles away.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Lookout was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. The house was extremely clean and cozy and the view was fantastic. We had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend away. Sandy was very helpful in recommending local places to eat and events going on in the area. We had fun exploring and would definitely stay here again!

What a lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed staying at The Lookout, which was very clean, comfortable, and welcoming. The views were incredible! The house was well-stocked, and the ping-pong table in the basement was a fun surprise. Sandy was very responsive, friendly, and kind at every step. When we arrived she greeted us with many ideas for things we could do during our stay. The Lookout is a gem! Highly recommend!

Great Cottage while visiting the beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

A great cottage to relax in while visiting your beautiful area. You have thought of everything that would make out stay really memorable. We toured Harper's Ferry, the Battlefield, Shepherdstown, C&O Canal. The Lookout gave us a unique view of the Battlefield.

Excellent Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults, 1 toddler) had a lovely time staying here. The views are amazing, the location is great, close enough to so many sites - Harpers Ferry, the battlefields, etc, yet out in the countryside to have a private feel. Brian and Sandy were great to communicate with, extremely responsive and very helpful. The house itself was very comfortable and well stocked. I highly recommend this cabin!

Loved the lookout. View was amazing, everything needed was there. Very relaxing. Enjoyed the ping pong table and information book. Nutters ice cream is the best. Close to Harper's Ferry, Washington Mounument in Boonesboro, and battlefield. Thanks hope to come again!

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

The moment I contacted Sandy about renting the Lookout the experience was wonderful. Sandy and Brian are very hospitable and really make their guest a top priority. The house is a great home away from home. It was the perfect place for my parents and I during our vacation as we traveled around the area. The sunsets are amazing and the house is very homey and relaxing. I didn't want to leave and will definitely be back.
