      The Scrabble Cottage

      We loved our stay at the Scrabble Cottage. It was clean, comfortable, and simply adorable. We loved the location and would highly recommend it.

      Cute cottage close to shepherd university

      The cottage was just like the pictures showed. Decorated very cute and it felt very homey. Bed was very comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped. The pool and hot tub were great. It was very relaxing and tranquil. We would definitely stay here again

      5/5 Excellent

      Quiet Hideaway

      A carefully designed, beautifully furnished and comfortable cottage in woodland surroundings. The owners have taken great care to create a relaxing and welcoming environment with high quality fittings, furnishings, linen, well equipped kitchen area, very comfortable king bed and different seating areas. This attention to detail is carried on outside with different seating/eating areas around the garden to maximise sun and shade. The swimming pool is a great added luxury (though personally we found it very cold but that’s probably because we’re not used to the amazing US summer temperatures!) The cottage was a great location from which to explore the Civil War battlefield sites of Antietam and Harper’s Ferry - both were incredible places to visit and will endure in our memories. Shepherdstown was a lovely town to have on the doorstep and we found good places to eat there (Blue Moon, also Grape&Grain for home nibbles), at Harper’s Ferry (Rabbit Hole and a wonderful roadside fruit stall) and Sharpsburg (ice cream at Nutter’s). We wished we’d been able to stay longer to explore the wildlife reserve further up Scrabble Road and to enjoy the cottage.

      5/5 Excellent

      Picturesque retreat

      Scrabble Cottage was everything we hoped for as a welcoming and lovely retreat to relax in after busy days of exploring. Happy hour by the pool was one of the nicest parts of our day. Great location. We enjoyed Shepherdstown and visited Harpers Ferry and Antietam with great ease. The cottage is as pretty in person as it looks in pictures and we highly recommend it.
