My husband and I were looking for a different way to celebrate our 35th anniversary. We need to find someplace within a reasonable driving distance from the D.C. area. I went on Tripadvisor and found this wonderful cabin. WE arrived after dark so the ride up to it was a bit scary . As soon as we opened the door we were amazed.

Comfy rustic cabin, but with some of the comforts of home, like air conditioning. The living room was comfortable, the kitchen well equipped. The front porch was nice for an evening sitting.

Management response:

Thank you for selecting our farm cabin for your special time away from home. We hope that you will find your way back when in need of some quiet relaxing time again.
