Three Otters is a peaceful 14 acre eco-retreat nestled in a gorgeous wilderness setting with a 1/4 mile on the Potomac River. We are open early April to mid-November.
Three Otters is perfect for family reunions, small weddings, youth groups, get-a-ways, retreats, or celebrations/parties. Full property rentals are designed to accommodate groups of up to 40. We can also host additional day visitors. When you book a full property rental, you have Three Otters to yourselves. We do not book multiple parties at the same time.
Three Otters offers warm and welcoming gathering spaces where your group can prepare and share meals, sit around the campfire, play cards, enjoy a kick ball game or just relax and visit. Or, if you are feeling a bit more adventurous, we have tubes, kayaks and canoes for float trips and trail guides for hikes.
We have 20 sleeping areas for your group including a cabin, 3 yurts, 3 tent cottages, 5 vintage trailers, 3 pop-up campers, 2 bell tents, as well as space for personal tents. We provide the linens and bedding, you provide your own towels and toiletries.
Amenities are many - the River Kitchen offers a restaurant grade kitchen where guests can prepare meals and dine together. Wheelchair accessible, the River Kitchen has a full ADA bath and a deck overlooking the Potomac. The Grill Pavilion comes with a grilling area and a completely screened outdoor kitchen and dining area. The overlook deck spans 60 feet and provides stunning views of the Potomac and a quiet screen room with fan and light where you can read or rest. Best of all, we have a clean bathhouse with 4 full, private baths. Finally, Three Otters has a level one acre field for ball games and stargazing and a large organic garden so you can enjoy fresh produce.
At Three Otters we offer a wide range of adventures including float trips, hikes in Green Ridge State Forest and biking along the C&O Canal. Let us know if your group would enjoy a guided float trip or an educational program during your visit and we will make that happen. We also offer an optional meal plan for guests, that way you can relax and let us take care of preparing and serving your meals.
Three Otters is a beautiful, unique retreat that fosters unplugging and coming together in community in a beautiful wilderness setting. Come see for yourself!
