About Ken & Cheryl Maust
The photo is of my mother who has managed this property for the past 20 years until Feb 2022. I, Ken, grew up in Accident, MD on this farm. In 1995 I moved to Nashville, TN to take a job as a Road Manager/Sound Engineer for many different artists. This took me to all 50 states and about 15 countries. In Nashville, I met my wife Cheryl who was working for the management company of George Strait, Lee Ann Womack, Dierks Bentley, and others. She also went to school for interior design. We got married in 2002 and now have 4 children. After the children came along, I decided I no longer wanted to be on the road all the time, so I got a "real job" in the building industry designing homes. In 2014 we decided to move back to Accident, MD. We both love having guests over and enjoy cooking. Sipping a fresh cup of hot coffee on the front porch while watching the deer and wild turkeys is an enjoyment of ours. Cheryl's parents both moved to the US from Cuba in the 1950's so Cheryl's first language was Spanish. Cheryl grinds her own flour and bakes fresh bread regularly. Her homemade pizzas will rival any pizza shop! One of her passions is to take old furniture or other objects and take her artistic touch to turn them into something new, useful and exciting! She also enjoys oil painting when she gets the opportunity. While I now spend much of my time working from home designing houses, I also mix sound at a local state university where they bring in various national/international artists.
Why Ken & Cheryl Maust chose Garrett County
I am one of nine children who grew up on this farm. When I was in middle school my dad and I planted the white pines that now surround the cabin. A few years later we built the pond so that we would have water to irrigate our strawberry fields. Several of us kids moved out of the area when we grew up and my dad and mom decided to build this cabin so that their kids would have a place to stay when we came back home to visit. The construction of the cabin was a labor of love by my dad, my siblings, in-laws, and some friends. Some of the hemlock boards used for the siding and trim came from trees off the farm. My parents decided to extend their hospitality and make the cabin available to people outside of the immediate family. Many have made this their vacation home year after year! My father was a school teacher, a pastor, and a farmer. He passed away in 2002 and since then the cabin has been managed by Ida, my mom, along with help from the kids. At age 88 she decided that it was too much for her to manage and that it was time to sell it to one of her kids. She still likes meeting the guests when they stop by the farmhouse... In Feb 2022 Cheryl and I were blessed with the opportunity to purchase it from her and continue the tradition! We feel that it is too nice of a place to just be enjoyed by one family and we want to share it with you and others! We want others to also be able to escape the craziness in the world and to be able to relax and be refreshed by the peace and beauty in nature - at least for a while... The area is quiet and private, yet close enough to enjoy the local attractions and the mountains of Western Maryland.
What makes this Cabin unique
The cabin is fully furnished, heated, and overlooks our private 1-1/2 acre lake. There is a firepit between the cabin and the pond that is available to use. Also available within a few hundred feet, if needed, is a pavilion with picnic tables, chairs, gas grill, and a campfire circle of large rocks for relaxation, story-telling, or reminiscing. There is a sand volleyball court near the pavilion. We also have the Butterfly Suite that sleeps 5-6 and the Board Room that sleeps up to 9 a few hundred yards across the field. This works great for family reunions, weddings etc. A number of weddings have also been held on the farm in the beautiful setting of the lake area. Whether you are seeking a peaceful retreat, a romantic getaway, or simply want to experience a natural wonder, you will find what you are looking for at the Country Acres Retreat.
