We stayed in the Hide and Seek cabin. It was just right for a couple. The fireplace was warm and cozy, the armchair and sofa were very comfortable, and the bed gave me the best night's sleep in a long time. The Cabin was exceptionally clean and had all of the utensils we needed for cooking.

We aim to come here every Autumn for a long weekend and we love the Whitetail Ridge cabin! The cookies are such a nice gesture and yummy too! The service is impeccable and the cabins are clean and well kept. The mattress is very firm but we just add a foam topper and that does the trick! We enjoy the solitude and all of the hiking and things you can do nearby, the zoo, Gettysburg outlets, Mt. St. Mary’s Grotto, etc. Plenty of parks to pick from! Our daughter loves the playground. Can’t wait to come back!

We visited for the first time at the recommendation of our neighbors & absolutely loved every part of it! We stayed in Hide & Seek cabin and it was the perfect place for two. Everything you needed with a kitchen, dining table, living room & fireplace, queen size bed, & bath with large tub! We also loved our little deck. There was a swing & picnic table available for us as well. We enjoyed walking the area & relaxing and reading! We found it so calm & peaceful. It was quiet and restful and a much needed break from normal life. We found the staff so friendly & helpful and the prices to stay here are quite reasonable. We would highly recommend this to anyone who needs to get away and we hope to return sometime soon!

We chose to stay at the Sunny Maple cabin for a long weekend get away. We have a pre teen and a teenager and they both had a great time. The cabin was very well kept. Plenty of firewood provided. The staff was very friendly my family loved to welcoming cookies. Everything was provided in the kitchen. The cabin had so much wooded area around it it felt like we were in our own world but close enough if we needed anything. The only thing I would suggest is the dog park needed a little TLC it had alot of mushrooms.

Unlike many people I worked my job all year. I hadn't had a vacation in over a year. Usually, we go on cruises. Desperate to get away, I decided on camping, which I haven't done in almost 30 years. After extensive research, I decided on Old Mink Farm Recreation Resort. It's an hour from home and in the beautiful Catoctin Mountains. I took my mom for her birthday, along with my fiancee. We stayed in the Phenix cabin, which is gorgeous and comfortable. It brought back so many good memories. I wish we had found this place years ago! We look forward to returning next year. The Irons family are so helpful and good, even to loaning use a charger, and handing out fresh baked cookies on arrival.
