About Karen Smith
I have always lived in Frederick county, and I so proud and excited about how it has become such a great destination. There is so much to see and do, both within Frederick County as well as just an hour away. My husband & I love to travel, especially to visit the National Parks. Camping is typically our preferred travel method.
Karen Smith purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Karen Smith chose Frederick
Early in our marriage, my husband and I would drive around this area and dream of one day owning a log cabin in the woods. I never thought it would come true, but we purchased it in 2007, and it has been a dream home ever since.
What makes this Cabin unique
It is so peaceful and quiet here, and on clear nights, the stars are as bright as anything. My favorite past time is to drink my coffee on the front porch in the mornings, and sit on the deck under the stars in the evening. Yet we are only 30 minutes from downtown Frederick, where there are many shops and restaurants, as well as other activities. We are also only over an hour's drive from many historic places, like Gettysburg, Harper's Ferry and Antietam; and an hour and a half drive from DC or Baltimore.

Beautiful log home!
This log home was everything it says it is. We had lots of room to accommodate our group of 6. Kitchen was big with lots of cabinets and counter space. Would highly recommend this home for your vacation!
Wonderful home! Clean and cozy!
My family and I had a great stay here! I would definitely recommend it!
Beautiful home close to Gambrill state park and Catoctin mountain national park. Enjoyed hikes all weekend and relaxing in the cabin. Highly recommend.
Very nice quiet location. The house is nicely laid out with all the amenities we needed.
Quiet location. The house had all the amenities we needed. House instructions were simple and Karen was easy to work with.
Cabin in the woods with all the comforts you can imagine.
Our "sibling" reunion gathered here for 5 days of shared experiences and catching up. It proved to be close enough to BWI for convenience, (though weather and flights provided their own challenges). Karen suggested to bring your groceries, as it is remote. It took a bit to get oriented on the back roads, but we all loved the setting. I would come back in a heart beat, given the chance!
Perfect family home - in the most beautiful setting... we can’t wait for an opportunity to visit again!
Our house is located on a road that goes across the ridge of a mountain. On one side of the mountain is Middletown, a small town with a great restaurant, Main Cup, and three golf courses. On the other side is Frederick, with a wonderful downtown area including many small shops and restaurants, a beautifully revitalized creek and a lot of historical places, especially for Civil War Buffs.
The house is located in the Catoctin mountains with many walking and mountain biking trails nearby. It is also 15 minutes from Cunningham State Park and Catoctin National Forest with a lake for boating or kayaking (rentals available) and many more trails, including one to Cunningham Falls.
