Ideal for a weekend or longer vacation for families with children; bride's and bridesmaids' pre-wedding hangout; writer's retreat; visits to Loudoun wineries, breweries and farm-to-table restaurants; Civil War historic site visits; Appalachian Trail hikers and C&O Canal Towpath bicyclists.

- Towels, hair dryer and all bath amenities are supplied for our guests.
- We are actually a hybrid accommodation, suitable as a vacation rental but also a B&B -- we provision breakfast foods in the refrigerator for guests to enjoy (and cook, in the case of eggs, bacon and sausage) for the first 1-2 mornings. Guests may bring in and prepare food for all other meals in the fully-equipped kitchen. We are also appropriately described as a "farmstay" accommodation, since observation of the sheep, llamas and vineyard are part of the experience!...moreless

We are ideally located for visitors with a wide variety of interests -- history, nature and wildlife, agriculture, bicycling, running and biking, fresh and local food and wine (as well as craft beers), painting and drawing, or just chilling out in our cottage with a good book or movie. (We keep a collection of books and DVDs in our cottages).
For Civil War buffs, we are a short drive from the battlefields of Antietam, Manassas, Monocacy, South Mountain and Ball's Bluff; even Gettysburg is only an hour's drive away. Civil War battle reenactments occur from time to time at all these battlefields. Harper's Ferry, WV -- the site of John Brown's raid -- is 10 miles away at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers. Lovettsville itself was a key border town, as a majority of its residents voted against secession and a number of its young men fought for the Union as part of the Independent Loudoun Virginia Rangers.
We are also only 8 miles from the historic village of Waterford, founded by Quakers, whose residents also voted against secession and served as an important stop on the Underground Railroad. Today, the fabulous Waterford Craft Fair and Homes Tour on the first weekend of October brings thousands of visitors from all over the U.S.
Lovettsville hosts two fun festivals each year -- MayFest and Oktoberfest; Brunswick hosts Railroad Days in October.
Several vendors at Harper's Ferry offer rafting, kayaking, canoeing and inner-tubing on both the Potomac and the Shenandoah.
Year Purchased: 1992
About the owner: Malcolm and Pamela Baldwin are active retirees from careers in international development and environmental policy, now focusing their time and energy on their historic farm, where they raise sheep and llamas, grow wine grapes and host weddings and overnight guests. They love to share their property with guests from all over the U.S. and overseas.
Why the Owner Chose Lovettsville, VA, USA:
The Shepherd's Cottage and its companion the Milk Cottage -- both part of beautiful WeatherLea Farm and Vineyard in Lovettsvillle, VA -- combine the best of vacation rental and bed-and-breakfast accommodations for families, couples and small groups of any age. Our location is unbeatable for a wide variety of sights and activities -- historic, recreational, rural and epicurean -- while also offering easy access to Washington DC and Baltimore, MD. We have also been a favorite place for writers to work in peace and quiet while taking advantage of our internet connections. We recently served as the location for an independent film, and for a renowned group of artists who painted our outstanding landscapes during the autumn season. Both cottages also serve as refuges for brides, grooms and their families during weddings held here at WeatherLea between May and October.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Having lived abroad for a number of years, the Baldwins especially enjoy hosting international guests! Our location is ideal for an amazing array of historic sites, recreational opportunities, and great food and wine.
