About the Property
Conveniently situated just off I-70, and 2 miles outside historic downtown Middletown. Secluded and quiet – yet, practically next door from golf, shopping, restaurants, antiques, and lots more.
Enjoy all the charm and attractions of Frederick, or venture to nearby sites from the French and Indian War, the Revolutionary War, and the Civil War in four states and the District of Columbia (an easy drive).
50 minutes to Baltimore or Washington DC and Gettysburg, and only 20 minutes to the Grotto or Hagerstown Outlets. Take the MARC train from Brunswick(20 minutes) for a day in Downtown DC. Hop across the bridge to Historic Harpers Ferry, WV in 20 minutes. Hike the Appalachian Trail, tour Antietam Battlefield, or Historic Downtown Boonsboro, MD antiques, Nora Roberts venues, and more.
Greenbriar State Park is great for swimming in the lake and picnics with the family. Gambrill State Park, can't be beat for walking the dog with great vistas of the valley. There are at least five blazed trails of varying difficulty and length. If you like to ski, you'll find Whitetail, Liberty, and Round Top within forty minutes drive! For golf it will be tough to choose between Beaver Creek, Musket Ridge, or Hollow Creek or Maryland National.

Kid friendly farm! Bring the water shoes for some great time fishing, splashing, and traipsing through the refreshing streams exploring the farm. Sheep are very friendly and will eat corn right out of your hand. Kids room stocked with books, games, puzzles, and tons of Legos if needed. Old classic VHS Disney movies if some down time is needed. Tons of wildlife! This morning I had a walking stick on my window and yesterday a fox was crossing the field. Deer frequently around the property and currently bed down frequently on hype other side of the chicken coupe. If you need other entertainment middletown has several parks. One of which has marble rings, did you know we have the current marble champion? A bag of marbles in the kids room - give it a try!...moreless
