We recently visited for a weekend getaway; my husband and I had the 1 bedroom Hemlock Haven, while my parents had the 2 bedroom Quiet Oak. We both have dogs, and so these were the pet-friendly cabins from each category. The Hemlock Haven was a modular home, with a large screened-in porch attached. Inside was 1 bedroom with a queen...

I have stayed here twice now-once during the off-season and once over the Fourth of July weekend. I highly recommend coming at any time-Ole Mink Farm is lovely and an incredibly well cared for property. Most of the sites are "permanent" RV sites but there are numerous cabins available for the traveler. I stayed in the Quiet Oak Cabin which... More

My husband and I decided to get away some place nice, but we didn't want to spend hours/days traveling. By luck, I happened on Ole Mink Farm online. The ride to the resort was about 1 and half lanes on a winding country road. My husband and I both commented "I'm sure glad we're not driving a class A motorhome".... More

This is a rare find, a gem in the Catoctin Mountains. The campground has all the amenities of nature and the luxuries of a fine hotel. The cabins are rustic, but air-conditioned, cozy, with wi-fi, cable television and comfortable beds. Debbie and Mike Irons are first-class hosts, anticipating a guest's every need. I loved my stay at Ole Mink Farm.

I went with my girlfriend, now fiance, to stay at this cabin for the weekend. The cabin was great, it comes with everything you need except for clothing and food. Only complaint about the cabin is all the spiders and insects on the porch and in fire pit and the narrow gravel roads but you cant really complain about being... More

We rent a seasonal camp site at Ole Mink Farm and could not be happier with our choice. The Irons Family go out of their way to be friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautifully kept and the sites are large and clean. We have seen the cabins and if we did not have a camper there we would certainly... More

We had the most amazing time with our weekend visit. The cabin was so beautiful and was a 5 star as to the maintance of the property. They were so accommodating with all of our needs. You truly can tell this is a family owned business, they take such pride in giving the best to you.

We stayed in the very early spring so we pretty much had the entire camp to ourselves. They were very friendly and the cabin was very clean. The game room is a nice touch for the kids to hang out in. :)

I happened to go on my 3 day vacation in the deep freeze of February. I choose the cabin with a fireplace and a loft. It is beautiful. I went snowshoeing on marked trails if you wish to hike.There is a creek to explore and the snow to make a snowman. The staff will do anything and everything to make... More
