Property description

Serene, majestic, Civil War era farm on the Antietam Battlefield. The 1810 historic stone house is in the middle of a 120 acre working cattle farm on a bluff overlooking the C & O Canal and Potomac River. It is surrounded by open fields with beautiful vistas in every direction. Walking distance to C&O canal.

There is a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable family room, dining and living rooms, four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Sleeps 10-12 comfortably.

The farm is adjacent to the Antietam Battlefield near many historic and scenic attractions including Gettysburg and other Civil War sites. The house was used as a hospital during the Antietam Civil War battle. In modern times it was featured on the Travel Channel's Amazing Vacation Homes.

Our guests have included girls' weekends, romantic getaways, and it’s perfect for families. We have hosted many weekends of long-time friends getting together to relax and reminisce. Washington, DC and Baltimore are within a 90 minute drive.

4100 Harpers Ferry Road, Sharpsburg, MD 21782.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1960

About the owner: Owner and daugter pictured in master bedroom. I purchased the 1810 farm house and surrounding 118 acres in 1960. We named the property Hillenbruck Farm in 1979 when my lovely wife and I were married. It has served as a family retreat for decades. I hope that you will enjoy it as much as we have.
