        Cozy cabin

        Owner is great to deal with , amenities also good with wood and coal for the fire pit , kitchen utensils, linens and towels. Also nice that some of the basics were there like spices and condiments . The main bed was comfortable however the other pullouts and futons not as much but workable . A bit far from the main tourist areas however if you plan to just stay out it’s fine . Overall a great stay.

          5/5 Excellent

            Great cabin for a family get together. Centrally located with tons to do. Very quiet area.

            We met our son and daughter-in-law who live in Leesburg VA at this cabin and had such a great week catching up. This cabin is well equipped and centrally located. Close to everything we wanted to do. We stayed the last week of the year so it was cold, but we still walked the neighborhood, spent time in Harpers Ferry, drive for about an hour and saw four covered bridges, went to some wineries and just chilled at the cabin. I would recommend this location for a quiet time with access to so much in this area. Host is awesome and very attentive.
