About Chris Currie

I am an educational program development consultant and my wife edits our community newspaper. We live with our three children near Washington, D.C.

Chris Currie purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Chris Currie chose Titusville

The Trouthouse is our vacation home, which we are pleased to share with you when we are not staying there. I designed the cabin and guest house to be our dream get-away, and hope that it will be yours, as well.

What makes this cabin unique

Today it is almost impossible to find a modern vacation home right on top of a stream bank, due to flood regulations. We were able to build our new cabin on piers on the site of an older cabin that was razed. As a result, you can dine on the back deck overlooking the stream as well as fall asleep at night listening to its music.

The property is in a beautifully wonderful serene setting.

  • 5 of 5

It was great to be able to look out the windows and see a babbling creek in the back. When you exit you car upon arriving, you are greeted with the sounds of the creek and nature. It was wonderful to feel secluded and right at home.

The house is fully stocked with everything you will need for a great stay. Everything was so clean, and ready for our use. The kitchen was such a pleasure to cook in; it had everything we needed. The gas grill was also great to use.

The beds were so comfortable to sleep in, that my husband said he got some of the best sleeps he's had in a while. There are plenty of beds for everyone.

The cell service is spotty, if you get service. The TV channels come through very clear. There were a few board games to play as well.

Communicating with Chris was great; he responded back quickly. He sent all the information needed for our stay and was very helpful though out the process.

Overall it was a wonderful place to stay and if we are in the area, we would stay here again.

Great property & even better host

  • 5 of 5

Chris was truly a pleasure to communicate with. He's fast to reply to questions, and very helpful. The property has a log cabin feel and is paired beautifully with very high-end appliances, fixtures, tub, etc. We enjoyed our trip very much, and look forward to returning.

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the cabin! It was nice having all the dishes and appliances in the kitchen. Our kids had a lot of fun playing and sleeping on the bunk beds and playing near the stream and outside. Very comfortable cabin and great for family with kids!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Very great stay here, everyone was wonderful to work with. Chris was very helpful with questions we would have, and would respond quickly and the information he gave was so helpful. We loved the amenities provided at the Trouthouse also, our toddler had a great time in the creek and with the toys on the deck. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!

Time to relax!

  • 5 of 5

The property is wonderful! The stream behind the cabin is so clear that you can see the sand in the stream bed. The caretakers, Bill and his wife, obviously take great pride in their work, the house is well maintained and was very clean when we arrived. New pictures should be posted to show the “boardwalk” that one can use to get from the driveway to the guest cabin and then the main cabin – it made loading and unloading the vehicles quite easy. During our stay, there was a mechanical problem. Bill made it clear that he knew this was our vacation time and gave several options as to how the problem could be addressed at our convenience with the least intrusion possible. The kitchen was a lot of fun to cook in - high end appliances that include a convection oven. There is every type of pot, pan, cookie sheet, muffin tin etc. that one could wish for. There is a drawer full of different seasonings and flour and sugar are available. Firewood was even available with a wheelbarrow so that it was easy to transport.

While the property was wonderful for our party, potential renters should be aware that there is essentially only one sleeping space available for folks with limited mobility. In the main cabin, the three upstairs bedrooms can only be accessed by the lovely spiral stairs and the bathrooms are on the first floor. The guest house has a bed that is up against the wall on the first floor and the bathroom is on the first floor. This allowed my Mother who does not walk well to join us.

Everyone in our party loved the property as we could relax and unwind and we hope to be able to book this property again in the future.

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

It was a lovely house with every amenity to enjoy it both inside and outside. Loved the sound of the river out back - it was so relaxing. The house was immaculate when we arrived. The scenery all around the area was gorgeous.
