There is a small pond and lots of land for short hikes or walking.

Gettysburg, Antietam, and Manassas Battlefields are within an hour travel by car.

Peaceful and beautiful

I enjoyed my stay in the Quaint little cottage on Bob and Dorian's homestead. The hosts were so welcoming and the location was beautiful and serene. I needed a weekend to decompress and this was the perfect place to do just that!

Dorian and Bob could not have been more welcoming. From the moment we arrived we felt as if we had found our perfect oasis. Waking up in the morning seeing their magnificent horses, and feeding them carrots; life just doesn't get any better. The cottage was immaculate, attention was given to every detail.

We have found our new getaway when we are visiting our daughter.

Thank you again for everything,

Cheryl and Doug

Wonderful stay in rural haven!

  • 5 of 5

What a delight to stay at the Millers' cottage! We needed a get-away from the NYC heat, and from the moment we drove up the road to Buckskin Manor, we knew we has picked the right place. The scenery in the middle of rolling lush hills is exquisite -- right next to Breaux winery and near Harpers Ferry, bike trails, tubing adventures and amazing roadside BBQ! The cottage is superbly appointed. The Millers thought of everything: Big fluffy towels, fancy bedding and a well-stocked kitchen. They even provided wood so you can make a big bonfire at night. Bob, Dorian and the entire family were welcoming and offered helpful advice on places to visit. Even their dogs -- Chloe and Zoe -- stopped by the say hello. I highly recommend to anyone needing a luxury escape -- but prefers their own space. We'll be back!
