Quiet Country Cottage w/Hot Tub on Potomac & C&O Canal

Quiet Country Cottage w/Hot Tub on Potomac & C&O Canal

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 4, 2014
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 7 Sleeps

This bright and cheery country cottage is a great place to be if you want to get away from it all and enjoy a quiet country setting. The Potomac River and C&O Canal Towpath are across the road from the front yard and can be seen from the deck when the leaves are off the trees. The 5 man hot tub, on the deck is a great place to relax and meditate. Take long walks along the C&O Towpath, we are located at mile marker 77. The boat ramp is just two doors down. Just 3 miles to Antietam Battlefield, 13 miles to the Prime Outlets shopping and 5 miles to the Appalachian Trail.

Fine dinning and boutique shopping located in Shephardstown, West Virginia, only 5 miles away.

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!
