After a very stressful year, we needed a simple getaway, and were delighted to find this cottage in a part of Maryland we love--the C&O canal in Sharpsburg. The location and house did not disappoint. We brought our bikes and kayaks, and used the car only to get food provisions. Sitting on the deck in the morning light drinking coffee, or in the hot tub at night watching shooting stars, our stresses melted away. The house was very clean, comfortable, well appointed and couldn't ask for any cooking utensil that wasn't there. Loved the retro stove! We look forward to other opportunities to rent this cottage.
