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

Quiet, quaint and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family really felt comfortable and at home. The back sitting area was a nice relaxing atmosphere. My hubby definitely rested there a lot. My daughter left her swim suit and Gary mailed it to us. Fantastic!

The house is wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a long weekend with my daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter. The house is comfortable and convenient. It was stocked with everything we needed except beer and wine. It was an easy walk to the shops and historic sites. We enjoyed the front porch and the side yard with fish pond and gazebo. I would highly recommend this house in Harpers Ferry.

Even better in real life

  • 5 of 5

This is my third time staying here, and I love the place! Ceiling fans and tall trees keep it cool even on the hottest days - we didn't even turn on the AC. Kitchen has everything you could need. Cozy and comfortable. Walk to everything in town.

sensational location

  • 5 of 5

Ok to be honest on a scale from 1-10 where 10 is FANTASTIC...I would rate this as a 13.7 Yeah, it's that great!

It's a perfect location for hikers on the Appalachian Trail. The remodeled cottage captures the charm of "turn of the century home" with the conveniences of modern life.

The gardens and gazebo are charming and there is a nice view of the river. I can't wait to come back. I love Harpers Ferry and the cottage is great!!
