About the Owner

My husband David and I (married for over 20 yrs) have owned the Sharpsburg Cottage since 2000 when our second daughter Christina was born. David is a General contractor and I manage commercial office buildings, we commit to one capital improvement of the property every year. It is a blessing that David is so talented and can do most of the work himself. We live in Silver Spring Maryland and have two teenage daughters in private School. Being a Sr. Property Manager with over 20 years experience managing rental properties. I love working with our clients and hearing their stories of how much the enjoyed staying at the cottage. We love to spend time in the country and because it is only 1 hr from the house we can get there and back easily in a weekend. What a great place to relax. I hope you will come and visit us sometime. Take care, Catherine

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sep 1, 2013 A perfect hiker and biker getaway 16922 Snyders Landing, Sharpsburg, MD, 21782, United States (213553) -

Date of Stay August 22, 2013

Helpful votes:0/0. We rent a lot of homes within the DC area and this home has by far been the best we've ever rented. We loved the quiet location and close proximity to the C&O canal towpath, Antietam, Shepherdstown and Harpers Ferry. The local hike and bike trails are phenomenal for outdoor enthusiasts and walking on the towpath is great in summer because of the dense tree cover providing shade. We didn't even mind the lack of internet and cell access because it felt good to be disconnected for a change. FYI, Verizon never works well within the West Virginia area and probably will be hard to change. The house was immaculate and extremely well-stocked, and that's even allowing for doggie guests which is fantastic for us. Our dog loved the access to the river at Snyder's Landing (so will kids). Our favorite place to eat with dogs was Blue Moon Cafe in Shepherdstown which allow dogs on their beautiful garden patio. We loved it and will be back in the spring to see the river without the leaves. Thank you, Catherine and David.

My Response We are so happy you all enjoyed your stay! Looking forward to having you back again in the Spring!

Beautiful and cozy

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I stayed for the weekend to celebrate a 30th birthday, and I'm glad we picked this place. The house is as described and many more. We loved being in the hot tub at night and glazing at the stars. When we woke up in the morning, the living room window/glass door has the best view of the front yard and C&O Towpath. It was a beautiful sight to wake up to and have breakfast, especially during the fall season. The house decoration was amicably done to feel cozy and well maintained, it truly felt like home. Harper Ferry was a short drive away and worth visiting. We find the red binder (Owner's note and recommendation) very helpful and both towns (Sharpsburg and Shepherd ) super cute. I'm definitely keeping this place in mind for future getaways and recommending it to friends and co-workers.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful cottage with us.

Ahh! Peace and Quiet!

  • 5 of 5
After a very stressful year, we needed a simple getaway, and were delighted to find this cottage in a part of Maryland we love--the C&O canal in Sharpsburg. The location and house did not disappoint. We brought our bikes and kayaks, and used the car only to get food provisions. Sitting on the deck in the morning light drinking coffee, or in the hot tub at night watching shooting stars, our stresses melted away. The house was very clean, comfortable, well appointed and couldn't ask for any cooking utensil that wasn't there. Loved the retro stove! We look forward to other opportunities to rent this cottage.

Remote but accessible to LOTS to do!

  • 4 of 5
This is a great getaway. Private but close to loads of civil war battlefields if you like that sort of thing; accessible to DC or Baltimore in about an hour and a half.

The house is immaculately kept and the ammenities are super comfortable: lots of fluffy towels and squashy pillows, comfortable beds, the AC works great and we really enjoyed the hot tub. The kitchen is well equipped which was a plus for me, but if you don't want to cook Shepherdstown is right up the road.

It was especially nice to be able to bring our dog who loved the yard.

The only downer was no internet access and very spotty phone service but the privacy and quiet was a good trade there.

Thanks for a great week!

Great place for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5
I hosted a bachelor party here over Memorial Day weekend. It is the perfect venue if you have a group of guys who would rather spend the day touring the local battlefields or rafting on the river than standing in a rope line to get into a thumping club in the city. The cottage is wonderfully remote and the yard has plenty of room for running around, playing football, laying in the hammock or lawn chairs, or just enjoying being outside while grilling. We especially enjoyed the fire-pit, which makes for wonderful times just sitting around telling stories and catching up with old friends.

Despite feeling remote, the cottage is actually right by the Antietam Battlefield visitor's center entrance, the C&O Canal, and just about 15 minutes from Charles Town casino and Harper's Ferry adventure center. Thank you for a truly wonderful place to stay as part of a wonderful weekend.

Great Time in the Country

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in the 4 days we rented the cottage, and it was an easy drive from the DC metro area. The house is super-clean, and the kitchen is very well-equipped. The appliances are amazing! The house has a front porch, a deck, a huge side patio, and even a covered patio on the lower level, so there is plenty of room. The bedrooms are so cute, and the bathroom is a great size. We especially enjoyed the swing chair on the porch, and the huge front yard -- great for touch football, volleyball, or just letting the kids run around like crazy. The river was right in front of the house, and we did some fishing and swimming. We rode bikes along the tow path, and just had a wonderful relaxing time. I will definitely recommend the country cottage to friends, and we will definitely be back!

Amenities

From the Owner

We fell in love with this property because of its location. The C&O Canal Tow Path is located just beyond our front yard. We spend time walking and biking along the path during our visits to the house. There is a small country store two doors down where you can walk and get ice cream (Barrons Country Store). One of the first things we do is walk down to the river and take a dip. We are five minutes from Antietam Battlefield and close to many other local attractions. We would spend every weekend in the country if we could. The cottage is fully equipped as if it were are primary residence. Our lives have become very busy so we don't spend as much time as we would like, so we have decided to share our wonderful home with others. ENJOY!!
