About Gary Hill

I am a retired restaurant design/engineer. I have spent most of my working life in southern California but also 15 years in Guam and Hawaii. After retiring I have spent the last 10 years doing adventures I didn't have time for when I was younger. I've thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail and the Israeli National Trail. Also bicycled across our country three times. I've climbed Mt Kilimanjaro in Africa and Mt Fuji in Japan. I am an AT trail maintainer and boundary monitor and also volunteer at the Appalachian Trail Conservancy Visitors Center in Harpers Ferry. I also spend much of my time in Metro DC with my fiance Taeko.

Gary Hill purchased this bungalow in 2012

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great stay here for our weekend getaway in Harpers Ferry. The location was very convenient for visiting historic Harpers Ferry and hiking the Appalachian Trail. It is also a convenient location to get to. I took the MARC train after work and it was a five minute walk from the station, while my wife drove and was able to park on the property's driveway (which is a big bonus as parking is not easily found close to town). In addition to the great location, the cottage itself was beautiful and clean. It was nice that toiletries and kitchen necessities were available for use. I would highly recommend staying here for anyone visiting the area!

Great place to stay in Harpers Ferry. Had everything we needed. Cozy, clean, two-minute walk to historic downtown--doesn't get much better than that!

Wonderful, cozy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My dogs and I had a wonderful stay at Gary's cottage. We found it very clean and cozy. The view of the river and walks down Church St. were amazing. Dinner at Bistro 1840 was very good! I will check his availability the next time I am in the area. We loved the outdoor spaces too, but it was a little chilly while we were there.

Warm and cozy

This place was perfect for the quiet getaway my wife and I were after. A true escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Enjoyed quiet time reconnecting by the fire.
