    About this property

    Welcome to This Patch of Serenity on the River's Edge, to This Hideaway

    Vacation home in Shepherdstown with kitchen and balcony
    Welcome to this patch of serenity on the river's edge, to this hideaway. Take a seat. Decompress a moment. Take note of the expanse at your purview. This is your temporary home. This is your reprieve from the pin numbers, passwords, online postings, news alerts and the 24/7 world that so consumes us. Here you will find a home that touts all the modern conveniences while ensconced in another time, a slower time, a time of reflection if you are so inclined. The space Here you will find three bedrooms that sleep six, two full bathrooms, a kitchen, a flat-screen television, wi-fi and the gorgeous views of the Potomac River, which divides West Virginia from Maryland on the opposite shore. Here you will find a home that touts all the modern conveniences while ensconced in another time, a slower time, a time of reflection if you are so inclined. There is a grill, if grilling is your forte. There is a deck that requires nothing more than your presence. This stretch of the river lures all kind of water enthusiasts: boaters, kayakers, canoers, bird-watchers, photographers, Civil War aficionados and anglers seeking to land a good-sized walleye. Many of your water-related needs can be met at Shepherdstown Pedal & Paddle on German Street, the principal thoroughfare in town. There are plenty of hiking trails around Knott Road. Nothing puts you at one with Mother Nature more than the quiet and solitude of the untouched forests that envelop the area. Many are as they were in the early 1860s, when the Yankees lined the far shore and the Rebels the one that beckoned you. If you happen to traverse up Knott Road, you'll come to the dirt road's end and a stream that trickles in front of Knott Island, which sits in Washington County, Maryland, and is under private ownership. Otherwise, please enjoy your time in this idyllic setting. Guest access The entire house, front and back patios, front yard, and water access to the Potomac River. Other things to note That rooster you sometimes hear crowing is in charge of the neighborhood watch group, although his calls are mostly directed to the flock of hens that responds to his reports of finding a trove of yummy bugs or the occasional predator. And, my, how the flock loves bits of bread.

    Riverfront treasure

    Our family of four had a magnificent stay. The house is a spacious, light, airy 3BR, beautifully equipped kitchen with flow-through living and dining areas, with stunning views of the Potomac and woods. Comfy beds, quiet for sleeping. Washer-dryer hugely helpful for a family doing sports activities every day. The front deck is on the river, the back deck has a equipment to make a small cozy fire, and there is also a grill. We cooked and also dined out in great local restaurants. Rafting, zip lining, cycling, historic sites just minutes away down gorgeous backroads. Amy is an expert and helpful host. We will be back!!!
