Our historic C&O Canal house charmingly renovated.

The original 1790 log house, with 1857 additions, was recently updated with modern amenities, while retaining its historic charm. Operated since 2019 as a very successful AirBnB (earlier guest reviews did not fully transfer during re-listing).

Multiple outdoor venues on the extensive grounds. Property borders the C&O Canal and the towpath, mile marker 81 and Taylors Landing boat launch on the Potomac River (seasonal river views from property).

Miejsce
Step back into the America's story by entering our historic home, freshly and tastefully decorated in ways that respect its origins as a rural cottage expanded over generations, with the newest addition dating back to 1850.

At the same time, the house is equipped with modern amenities (cable TV, dishwasher, high-end kitchen appliances).

Our guests can enjoy two bedrooms (master bedroom with queen bed, and a 2nd bedroom with two twin beds), a full bath with clawfoot bathtub and shower and a half bath, a cozy living room, formal dining room, and a generous and cozy kitchen with vintage hand-made farm furniture and all new appliances (including dishwasher, Keurig machine, etc.) and a remote-controlled gas fireplace!

Reconnect with nature!
An expansive porch with rocking chairs invites you to relax with a view of the C&O Canal and towpath and the Potomac River beyond (the latter, when the trees lose their foliage).

The pergola is set up for outdoor dining and is equipped with a gas grill flanked by two water fountains that provide a wonderfully soothing ambiance. We are providing propane gas for grilling.

Another outdoor sitting area down the hill towards the Canal also has a fire pit and seating. Ready for s’mores or star gazing? (we are not providing wood for the fire pit)

We are also striving to reduce our environmental impact by restoring an American meadow and increasing the number of native plants that can be admired on our grounds. This obviates the need for using chemicals, reducing Potomac pollution, and attracting pollinators and other wild life.

Bird lovers bring your binoculars - or not! Many species visit our bird feeders and baths. You are likely to see and hear numerous types of birds, insects, frogs, perhaps some animals and reptiles indigenous to the Potomac area might even visit us. They are harmless unless attacked.

Dostęp dla gości
The maximum capacity of our historic house is 4 guests. The maximum capacity of each bedroom is 2 guests.

The use of main bedroom is included in the base price listed. The use of the second bedroom requires an additional charge. The guest have the option to book: a) the main bedroom only (for 1 or 2 people) included in the nightly base price, or b) both bedrooms by adding the "extra guest" fee. The "extra guest" charge also applies if, for instance, there are only two guests who need to use both bedrooms. Please contact Vern if not sure how to do this.

Our guests have access to the entire house, all grounds and outdoors spaces, including seating spaces around the fire pit and dining/gas grilling space under the pergola. We are providing propane gas for the grill but we are not providing wood for the fire pit. Numerous places nearby sell bundled wood.

When planting, growing, or harvesting time come around, you might see us working in the garden.

Please note:

No pets are allowed.
No smoking or vaping are allowed.
No illegal activities are allowed.
No parties and no unregistered guest or cars are allowed on the property.

Inne ważne rzeczy
Guests need to be able to climb stairs to the bedrooms and entrance door.

Children must be supervised at all times.

Please note that we don't provide special equipment for children (e.g., safety guards, cribs, highchairs)

We ask guests to remove their shoes to help preserve the original flooring. Please do not move the furniture around. No candles are allowed. No unattended open flame are allowed.

Most cell phones do not work in our area without Wi-Fi being enabled. Please set that up before arrival.

The base price is for 1-2 people using the main bedroom. If guests need to use both bedrooms, the additional charge for "extra person" applies due to the overall house use, additional laundry and cleaning time. If in doubt please ask Vern.

The only functional gas fireplace is in the kitchen, the other fireplaces are not functional at this time. Please do not leave any fire unattended both because of the fire hazard and to avoid depleting the propane gas tank (needed for cooking). A fire extinguisher can be found in the kitchen.

Sharpsburg, Maryland, Stany Zjednoczone

The property borders the historic C&O Canal. Natural beauty and wildlife abound on property and around it.

Taylors Landing, just across the street, offers a parking area and a boat ramp into the Potomac. Walking or biking on the flat C&O towpath or on the hilly country roads are popular past times.

The property is private and set in rural area, yet, our neighbors are close-by. Please respect their privacy by keeping quiet hours between 10 pm - 8 am.

Several working farms offer fresh produce in season. All year around, Sunny Meadows, on Route 65 (2 mi from us) sells farm fresh milk, eggs, vegetables, and an assortment of baked goods. Plus, a lot of beautiful plants!

Many important historic sites, including some related to the Civil War, are close by and warrant day tours and explorations.

Premium Outlets and small historic town dining and shopping are also within 10 miles!
