We already are planning our return to this cozy retreat.
Our time here is perhaps the most complete experience we’ve had in staying in owner-kept/operated hospitality accommodations. This is an absolutely lovely dwelling in which the attention paid to detail by Bill and Christine is evident in many ways.
The center part of the building is a cabin that was deconstructed at its original site and painstakingly reconstructed at its current location, with thoughtful additions added to provide additional living space. Their focus on maintaining consistency with the feel of the place (wonderfully styled molding, wide-plank pine boards with cut nails, gas fireplace mounted in a fitting hearth, etc.) while still adding modern conveniences such as stylish bathrooms, modern, well-appointed kitchen, thoughtful lighting, comfortable beds and sitting arrangement for we six adults, and more.
That the weather was rainy and cold for a portion of our stay did not deter us. Gettysburg was an easy drive, and we spent one day there. Frederick is a relatively unknown gem, and we spent a day poking around the shops and restaurants. When the weather cleared we took advantage of the wonderful hiking trails nearby. In amongst that, we explored Thurmont, as well. We did not turn on the TV during our four-night stay, instead reacquainting ourselves with books and board games.
We all enjoyed our stay so much that we are discussing how to sync schedules and ask Bill and Chris about the possibility of our returning next year!
Cute house for family and friends
This house is very clean and well-decorated on a lovely property. It is within a half hour of Gettysburg, and about 40 minutes from the annual Apple Festival. We had a group of four couples, and we regularly take trips together and rent houses. The pros are the cleanliness, the property, and the owners are very nice and accommodating. The con as we saw it was the bathroom/bedroom situation as other reviewers had mentioned. There is no bathroom on the main floor, and you must go through someone’s bedroom to get to the bathroom on either the top or bottom floors. Again, as other reviewers pointed out, it is doable with families and close friends, but it is not conducive to privacy. One other quick note is the property is set back off the road and may be hard for your GPS to find. We all had to swing by it a couple times before finding the driveway. Start watching for a driveway as soon as your GPS says your destination is a half mile ahead, because we found that it was actually less than that, more like a quarter mile. Maybe before you come call the owner and ask if they have any marker outside on the road. There was a pumpkin next to the driveway this weekend.
The property and house are beautiful. Since we were all women the bedroom situation was fine but if couples a bit more clarity is needed. The master bedroom (had a bedroom and a door that closed) was good. However the other bedroom upstairs is a loft and the people in the master need to walk thru the loft bedroom to get to the stairs. The basement bedrooms was the same situation. The shared bathroom (which was beautiful) was in the hallway between the rooms. If staying in the far bedroom you needed to walk through the front bedroom to get to those stairs. Overall the house was beautiful. The location was excellent for where we were visiting. I also tried to call the owners, and text, in reference to the garbage disposal and did not hear back. I was having problems with my cell phone so that may have been the issue. We ended up fixing it ourselves. Again, overall, it is a beautiful home, grounds, and location.
Thanks for your input. The website provides some insight into the bedroom situation. The log house provided a challenge to design the BRS when we moved and re-built it. I also did not receive a clear message about the garbage disposal. We do make every effort to have the house in perfect shape, which in the case of a log home is constant maintenance. But hopefully it was beautiful and FUN!!! thanks Bill
Skisportssteder ligger inden for 20 minutter, og der findes mange golfbaner (spørg den ulykkelige ejer / golfspiller om bedste / værste). Hollandsk Pa er en to timers kørsel, og Annapolis er en time og femten minutter. Dejlig mad overalt. Hood College og Mt. St. Mary's er i nærheden. Colorfest, en efterårsfestival i byen, er 2. weekend i oktober. Der er en ægte Zoo for børn lokalt og mange naturaktiviteter i State Park.
