About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 bath modern cabin located close to skiing, hiking, and Gettysburg

Built in August 2016, this cabin with 3 bedrooms and two full baths is located in the mountains of Carroll Valley, PA. Conveniently located 2 miles from Ski Liberty Resort and 20 minutes from the Gettysburg Battlefields. Our cabin is a perfect lodging alternative for those attending weddings at Liberty Resort. Or visiting family in the area.

Cabin comes fully stocked with dishes, bake ware, glasses, pots, pans, everything you need to make your stay most memorable. There is even a washer and dryer for your use. Linens and towels are provided making this a great weekend getaway.

Our cabin features a huge front porch complete with furniture to sit and have your morning cup of coffee or tea. There is also a hammock ready for those nice afternoon naps. The back deck is a screen in porch complete with large picnic table and seating. Great place to unwind after a long day of hiking, sightseeing, or just hanging out at the cabin.

We have two TVs, one in the living room area and the other in the loft. The downstairs TV does have cable and a DVD player; the upstairs TV is DVD/VCR only. Bring your favorite movies or watch one of the many in our movie library. There are games and puzzles there for all to use. The futon bed in the loft does convert to another full bed for extra sleeping, but we do not count it as one of the bedrooms.

In addition to being close to Gettysburg, we are 25 minutes from Long Pine Reservoir in Caledonia State Park for those interested in fishing or boating. There are no boat rentals, so you will need to bring your own. You also need to make sure that you have PA fishing and boat licenses. This park also has a seasonal swimming pool and many hiking trails. The trail head for the Appalachian Trail is only 6 miles from our cabin. Thurmont, MD is home to both a state park and national park that offer wonderful hiking as well.

Interested in golf - there is the Liberty Golf Resort two miles away, as well as the Mountain View Golf Course located outside Fairfield, PA.

We invite you to enjoy our family cabin. We do!!

About Marci Kinter

We built our cabin in 2016 on land that had been in our family for over 60 years. Native to the DC area, our family decided to build a property close by that allows us to enjoy all that the area has to offer. Avid kayakers, we have explored the area and discovered many gems on which to paddle! We love to hike, bike and ski when we are staying on Raven Trail. We would love to share our adventures with you so please contact us if you too are kayakers, bikers, skiers or hikers!

Marci Kinter purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Marci Kinter chose Fairfield

The land on which we built was originally purchased by my husband's father in the 1960's as a place to go during the Cold War! After being so long in the family, we decided to build a cabin so that we have a place to go to relax and rejuvenate. All the cabin artwork was created by my husband's brother who suddenly passed away in 2013. We wanted to provide a home for his artwork. Our cabin is actually built in his honor and memory. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we enjoy the area.

Beautiful cabin!

The cabin and surrounding area is beautiful! The cabin had everything that we needed as well as notes and flyers of things to do. Thank you again for providing our family with a great home for the week!

WOW! Such a great place! clean, bright, beautiful! We had family visiting from England, and wanting to show them a little bit more of America than Washington D.C. and Northern Virginia, we thought Gettysburg would fit the bill, and needed a place to stay while we visited. This beautiful home was the perfect place! Our guests where delighted! and so where we! we will be visiting again, for sure! Marci and her crew took excellent care of us! So, "thank you" Marci, and Bill! and here's to BOB!

Women’s Weekend 2018

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time at the cabin. Smelled so welcoming when we walked in the door with the pine wood. It’s how cabins should smell. Well stocked kitchen with everything you need. We had a great time laughing, chatting and playing cards all weekend. We will definitely be back.

A fine home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful on the inside and the outside. When I first walked in, the layout was warm and inviting. The bare pine paneling inside makes it feel like a cabin getaway should. The layout is excellent. The beds are very firm and comfortable. The home was already stocked with soaps and paper goods. A great relief, we brought just ourselves, our food, and our suit cases. The kitchen and appliances are new, and modern.

I would add that the internet connection is excellent. At the time I rented the place, I was able to get about 45mb internet. I didn’t get that much at a Hotel at a major resort in central Florida.

I rented this for my wife’s birthday. I may well see about renting this again for my birthday in October. Because I want to experience it again.

Owner's Response: Jonathan, so glad that you enjoyed the cabin. And, for the kind words, as we do try to create an inviting atmosphere so that everyone feels like they have come home. I know we do! And, September and October are beautiful months! Leaves are changing color, and great weather for hiking!

Beautiful setting, spacious and well stocked house!

  • 5 of 5

We will most definitely be back. The house was more than enough space for a family of four and a stone throw to ski at Liberty. Wood burning fireplace, lots of extra TLC put into the supplied housewares stocked. Thank you for an awesome family memory.
