4/5 Good

    Beautiful views, great kitchen, peaceful

    As promised, the river views were spectacular, the kitchen was well equipped - three different types of coffee makers (yes!), array of spices (bonus for the cook!) and spacious. The house has been renovated and was very clean. We had a wonderful time exploring Taneytown, Gettysburg, Thurmont, and the environs. Beautiful country - corn fields, rolling hills... Farm stands with fresh produce, yum! As noted in previous reviews, the house is on a very steep hill - and the stairs- especially the ones going down from the road/parking to the house are treacherous, very narrow, uneven, - you need to be very careful carrying luggage, coolers, etc. The river itself is not swimmable, there is a lot of mud, and little to no gravel bars. We went to Cunningham State Park and swam there. Canoeing and fishing seem to be the right activities. This is one of about 10 plus houses that are on the Monocacy River, they were built originally sometime in the 1940s. While this and one other house have been renovated - many others have not been, and are of varying stages of upkeep. Some of the areas are filled with old furniture, stoves, trash etc. There are a lot of private property signs up, so we felt uncomfortable walking our dog as we weren't sure if we were trespassing. But overall, it was a wonderful experience - we spent a lot of time on the deck overlooking the water, very peaceful.

      We enjoyed.

      We enjoyed the River House and felt very comfortable while we were staying there. Although the parking space was limited, it was okay. Also, the refrigerator was not working when we got in there. The temperature wasn't cold. Thus, we needed to wait to put our foods until the fridge got back its temperature. Other than that, it was cozy and comfortable.

      5/5 Excellent


        Cabin is really nice, renovations were well done. More convenient to BWI and Gettysburg than I had realized.

        4/5 Good

          It was perfect for our family of 6. Serene setting and very clean home.

          The property was very nice. The distance to Gettysburg, DC, Antietam made it easy to get a lot of activity in. Convenient shopping for groceries was a distance so plan accordingly. We brought our first few meals with us which was a good idea. The climb down is a definite challenge so would not recommend for elderly or physically challenged individuals. We would stay again if travels bring us back this way.
