Über dieses Inserat
Our four room cottage is the perfect spot for a summer dip in the creek swimming hole, enjoying the fall foliage, a winter getaway in front of the fire, or just hanging out on the screened porch listening to the rain or the birds.
Just 1.5 hours from Silver Spring, and under 2 hours from DC or Baltimore is our cozy four room cottage with a covered, screened porch and an open deck. Indoors is a livingroom/kitchen space, a bathroom and two bedrooms. (One with double bed and one with twin bunk beds) The living room sofa also converts to a full bed. Additional kids could be accommodated by camping on the carpeted bedroom floor.
Envisioned as a retreat, there is no landline, spotty cell phone service, no TV and no internet, but there is a wood burning fireplace indoors and a fire pit outside.
Not totally immune to creature comforts, we are fully electrified. We have hot water, electric baseboard heat, two window unit air conditioners and a full kitchen with fridge, stove and oven. (No microwave, though)
The house is very bright, with windows all around. The living room has two sliding glass doors - one to the deck and one to the covered porch.
A basement room is becoming a game room. So far we have bumper pool and magnetic darts.
Zugang für Gäste
The entire cottage is at your disposal. The bathroom and kitchen are stocked with the basics (and then some!) that you are free to use.
We have lots of toys and games, books and a few puzzles for your use.
Interaktion mit Gästen
We are 1.5 to 2 hours away by car, but available by phone or text. We have a handyman on call to respond to any problems on site.
Keys to the cottage are available via lockbox.
We're located at the end of a dirt road and on the edge of the community property in a development originally planned as summer homes (but now largely year round residents). From the cottage you can barely see any evidence of other homes - just lush woods.
There's a feeder stream that crosses our property (fun for finding crawdads) then joins with Back Creek. We have a community access point to Back Creek - a five to ten minute walk along trails or a dirt road. From there you can swim in the deep swimming hole, put in a kayak (bring your own kayak), fish, or just watch the water go by.
A few minutes walk away in the "development" is a rudimentary basketball court. It's clearly seen better days but still works for shooting a few hoops.
The surrounding area is chock full of apple and peach orchards. As you drive in you'll see lots of picturesque farms with horses, cows or goats.
A few minutes by car down the road is Orr's farm where you can buy locally grown fruits and veggies. They also do "pick your own" for strawberries, cherries, raspberries, blackberries, vegetables, grapes, pumpkins and even flowers!
You may also get to see the bison that they raise in a pasture next to the market!
The cottage is remote, only accessible by car. Inwood and Martinsburg are the nearest towns for shopping, restaurants, movies, etc. They are about 15 and 20 minutes by car, respectively.
Harper's Ferry and Berkeley Springs are each approximately 45 minutes by car.
Please no smoking indoors & no littering of smoking materials. Illegal drugs are strictly prohibited.
Children and babies are welcome. Some baby-proofing is in place (fridge, under sink cabinets) but drawers are not locked. As always, children's safety remains your responsibility.
As our vacation home the place contains many items that we love. We hope you will enjoy them as we do and exercise care, especially with pets and children.
Well behaved pets are allowed on case by case basis. Please ask before booking.
