About the Property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Buckskin Manor is in the northwest corner of Loudoun County. It lies on the western slope of Short Hill Mountain, in an area known as ‘Between the Hills.’ It is a tranquil setting that offers beautiful views of the Blue Ridge and Short Hill Mountain.

The main house at Buckskin Manor dates back to 1752. It was originally an inn located on the road between Leesburg, Hillsboro, and Harpers Ferry. The house was used as a field hospital during the Civil War. Additional buildings include the guest cottage, as well as a small barn, spring house, and smoke house. There is a small pond and lots of land for short hikes or walking.

The guest cottage lies approximately 150 feet from the main house. It has one bedroom, full bath, kitchen, eating area, laundry, and living room. Amenities include: large jetted bath, shower, air conditioning, television, internet, and a washer and dryer. The kitchen is equipped for self-catering. The cottage has basic supplies in the bathroom and laundry. The bedroom has a queen-sized bed. There is also a queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living room.

The location offers easy access to local towns, airports, and commuting into Washington DC. It is six miles to the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers at Harpers Ferry WV. Leesburg VA, Charlestown WV, and Frederick MD are within 20 miles. A commuter train in Harpers Ferry provides transportation to Washington DC. Gettysburg, Antietam, and Manassas Battlefields are within an hour travel by car.

History, outdoor activities, antiquing, wine tasting, and other activities are with in easy reach. It is in the heart of the Northern Virginia Wine Region. Tubing and rafting on the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers are a great way to enjoy the summer. There are numerous antique shops and auctions to explore in the area. Participate in, or just observe, local equestrian activities. Or, just drive around to see the lovely old farmhouses and beautiful landscape of northwest Virginia.
