My wife and I had a very peaceful getaway. The local fishing was good and it was nice to unplug. House has many thoughtful items such as soap, dishwasher detergent, paper plates, etc. Just be aware cell phone reception is pretty much non-existent... which was a good thing for us.

Very peaceful and relaxing place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time staying here during one of the Maple Festival weekends. We had about 4" of snow, which the kids loved. This is a very peaceful and relaxing place, listening to the Patomac River running through the back yard and watching all the wildlife passing through and making their way up the mountain. The house was very cozy, and the kitchen was lacking nothing.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

Four days here, unplugged, in the beautiful mountains is exactly what my family needed. The wonderfully restored farm house was perfect for my mother, siblings and their families and two little ones. There was enough inside space at night to cozy up and still put the little ones to bed early. We spent most of the day time in the yard, visiting the neighbors horses or exploring the river. The house was fully stocked, we read it would be but never believe it, this time it's true!

We will be returning!

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality!
