About this property

IN THE Heart OF Antietam

Historic vacation home in Sharpsburg
This beautiful historic home is right in the heart of the historical Antietam National Battlefield! The original footprint of this home was built in 1790 and was originally used as a Post Office during the Civil War. Later, the building was added onto in the 1850's. Seconds away from the nationally known Nutter's Ice Cream shop, Burkholder's Bakery, Captain Bender's Tavern, which has an amazing food menu, and many other local shops. There is so much to do when you stay here. Visit the Antietam National Battlefield and see the surrounding areas from the Civil War era Watch tower; visit the newly restored Burnside Bridge, hike the C&O Canal, fish the Potomac River and Antietam Creek, visit the Antietam National Cemetary. Walk around Boonsboro, MD and shop in Shepherdstown, WV. There is a fenced in back yard for you to relax and an enclosed porch to store your bicycles during your stay.

      Weekend getaway

      We had a wonderful stay at this home in Sharpsburg!! It met the needs of our group and was very welcoming. The rooms are very clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. We also found a nice assortment of snacks upon arrival—an unexpected but very welcoming extra touch!! Michael thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your home—the warmth and hospitality leave us looking forward to our next visit! Thanks again!

          Beautiful Home & Wonderful Host!

          We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home and town! Although short, we still enjoyed! The host Mike is nothing short of AWESOME! We really appreciated and enjoyed the history of the home and town that he shared with us. He communicates really well and also, to our surprise, left many snacks, treats, and even a bottle of wine in the fridge! I highly recommend this host and property! Thanks again, Jason & Sherrise

          5/5 Excellent

            Awesome time!!

            Heart of Antietam is in the perfect location to explore the surrounding cities. We floated to Potomac river, toured Antietam battlefield, spent a day in DC showing our kids the history of this great nation, ate way too much ice cream from nutters, and enjoyed the local eateries. Thank you for the goodies in the fridge and all the other hospitality. Try not to leave any food out. We got donuts from the market for the following morning and the ants found them first. Would definitely stay here again!
