This place is so confusing and confused. They gave us so many mixed messages. From the time we checked in - which by the way apparently making phone calls are more important than helping your customers. We weren't told ahead to go to a location...More

Lisa, We regret that you had a scary experience on the Antietam Creek. River & Trail, local boaters and other outfitters all work to clear the Antietam of downed trees with chainsaws though out the season being a nature environment trees do fall after storms....More
