Trip Advisor Love this place!
Apr 18, 2015 by: JE01 from Silver Spring, Maryland
We spent two nights recently. This was our second trip. We love this place. It is dead quiet at night and has a nice view of the Sharpsburg area. Breakfast were good and the housekeeper is a treat to talk with. Our room had a great view and the screened porch was a great feature. No TVs in rooms - thank goodness. Rooms are large and very comfortable. There are a number of good spots to eat close by. My wife and I heartily recommend this place!

Trip Advisor Wonderful all around

Loved our stay! Great, friendly atmosphere but also really easy to duck away and have privacy. Each room has private outdoor space with table and chairs, there is a common outdoor space as well, large common room with a lot of things to keep you busy in the house, a great property to keep you busy outside the house and so close to the Battlefield and tons of other things to do. You cannot be bored but it is not overwhelming. Breakfast is HUGE (a dessert is included every breakfast) and delicious (fresh eggs from the hen house every morning plus a whole plate of other foods). We didn't eat other meals in house because we were interested in exploring the area. Captain Bender's is nearby and a great place for dinner. Across the street from Bender's is Nutter's (ice cream) and it is also fabulous. Make sure to take a nice soak in the tub in your room and say hi to the ducks and chickens on the property.

My boyfriend surprised me a trip for my birthday. When we arrived we were informed some pipes were frozen and we were upgraded to their nicest room no charge. The room was very spacious with a private patio king bed huge bathroom with soaking tub and shower. Bedroom had wood stove and sitting area overlooking the battlefield. The staff was very nice and friendly. Breakfast every morning was amazing and plentiful. The house had a very warm rustic feel full of entertainment. Had a very wonderful relaxing time and will most certainly be back. They have a fridge full of drinks free of charge including a nice Chardonnay that they make themselves and is available for purchase. Mark the owner and Tina the housekeeper were very friendly.

Trip Advisor Excellent stay with a surprise!

My partner and I had a truly terrific stay the night after Valentine's Day this year. When we arrived, the owner informed us that some of the water pipes had frozen (the outside temperature with windchill was around the single digits), meaning that the room we had reserved was unavailable due to lack of water. However, the owner graciously offered us the nicest room in the house, the Generals Quarters, which had been newly converted into a guestroom, for no extra charge. This suite features a gorgeous sitting area with windows looking out onto the field, forests and mountains, A luxury bathroom with soaking tub, shower, and plenty of space, and the room itself had a wood-burning stove that was roaring when we arrived. We had a very restful evening by the fire out in the living room watching a movie, and the owner surprised us with a bowl full of buttered popcorn right as our movie started. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, particularly the spiced pear with Craisins, and the staff were incredibly friendly, welcoming and funny. Overall, an outstanding stay from a gracious owner on a beautiful property. Thank you so much!

Trip Advisor weekend getaway

Mark, Matt, and Tina were wonderful. The rooms are well appointed,very comfortable,tastefully decorated,and spacious. We loved the fireplace in our room. The breakfast was enjoyable and though we didn't have dinner the couples that did went out of the dinning room with smiles and said it was delicious.Our only negative comment is we didn't have a chance to say goodbye to Mark when we left. He was busy clearing the driveway from the previous nights' snow. Be sure to ask about purchasing some very good wine before you leave.
