Perfect Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing time staying in the cottage. Dorian greeted us in the driveway with a huge smile and was available through text the entire time and beyond accommodating. The cottage is sparkling clean and totally stocked with anything you could need; from a pizza cutter in the kitchen to q-tips and nice shampoos in the bathroom and the comfiest sheets. There is plenty to do in the area (lots of wineries! :) ) while also offering you to ability relax and just "be". My husband and I and our pup had an amazing evening just sitting by the fire pit under the stars. We cannot wait to go back, I also think our dog misses his new horse friends!

Great Location and Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the cottage. Sparkly clean and excellent design. Could not have asked for a better layout and place to stay. All of the little details really put this place over the top. Highly recommend staying here if you are visiting the Harper's Ferry area!

Clean cabin on gorgeous farm property

  • 5 of 5

Driving in, we were enchanted by the winery and farm countryside tucked between two mountain ridges. And the property itself is beautiful and has so much to offer: a pond encircled by a walking trail, a screened-in gazebo, patio with chairs and fire pit, large yard, and small boats for the pond. Definitely leave time in your stay to enjoy everything the property has to offer.

The cabin is just across the driveway from the main house, so it's not exactly private, but the hosts are very friendly and accommodating. The inside of the cabin boasts modern amenities with a country charm. The central A/C worked very well, the inline water heater allowed for as many showers/baths as needed, and the jacuzzi tub looked large enough for a whole family. On our visit, two couples stayed in the cabin and we had plenty of room for everyone. The sleeper sofa was plenty comfortable. Being dog friendly was also hugely helpful as we were able to bring our dog along for the fun and save the cost of sending him to a kennel.

A quick, 15-minute drive from Harpers Ferry, this cabin served as a great launching pad into the all the area has to offer. This is definitely a location that we would recommend to anyone looking for a country getaway.

An absolutely adorable and IMMACULATELY kept cottage. Centrally located near Harpers Ferry, wineries, breweries and shopping. Perfect for any type of getaway! Couldn’t ask for a better place. Plus, we were able to bring Gracie, our golden retriever. Highly recommend.
