LUXURY LOG HOME- DC, BALTIMORE, GETTYSBURG,FAMILY FRIENDLY,HIGHEST QUALITY!!

Thurmont House Rental Photos and Description

4 BR, 2 Full Baths, sleeps 9

In the foothills of Catoctin National Park (home of the Presidential Retreat, Camp David). Swimming, boating, hiking, waterfalls, Fall beauty. Skiing, golf, antiquing, all local and well done. Home moved and rebuilt in 2005 with all new kitchen, baths. On owner's farm, 1500 feet from main house. Built as luxury upscale guesthouse with the finest materials and craftsmanship. Bright and sunny, open and inviting. There is nothing 'rough' about this home!!!!! Very relaxing, great views and/or privacy. Minutes from food markets and restaurants. This is a property for the discriminating traveler who desires the highest quality. Please read our reviews- we are very proud!!!

The Best!!!: Sometimes you just have to brag- Chris and I ( and most guests) believe that this house far exceeds expectations. Our reviews speak for themselves. We really do attempt to make your stay just what you want it to be. You will always find this home in top condition and working order. We have attempted to set rates that are justified by this property ( again, most guests relate how fair it is, once they arrive, or as they depart. This is not a cabin in the woods- it is a home that took two years of great carpentry and masonry work to build, with no expense spared until it was completed. Please visit with us and give us your thoughts- we know they will be happy ones. Thanks Bill

Guestbook comments from the owner
The cabin was just fabulous. We all LOVED it very, very much. I'd LOVE to come back. We didn't even fill out the guest book because, in our haste to leave, we overlooked getting it done. Duhhhhhhhh. The photos online don't really do it justice. And, getting away for the weekend was simply perfect. What a lovely hideaway. My best friend said it was serenity personified. Exactly what I needed.

Chris and Bill built this home in 2004 to move into while they renovated their existing farmhouse they have lived in for 35 years. The farmhouse is a 1794 Moravian brick/stone home, featured in many magazine articles. This log structure was to be burned, and rescued by Bill. It features 'Perma Chink'- a finish between the logs that is flexible and insulated. The home is airtight and fresh. It features old materials used whenever possible.

LOVELY HOME BASE.

  • 4 of 5
A very comfortable landing pad for our group of 6, which included 2, 70 year old grandparents. We decided to rent a home away from DC so we could relax together at the end of the day, rather than in separate rooms of a hotel. We made the hour & 20 min drive to DC most every day. On the days we stayed 'home', we enjoyed the animals down the street, the books on the shelves and the very comfortable beds :) We explored the Catoctin mountain park just minutes away. Some day, we hope to visit again.

GREAT HOUSE FOR GROUP GATHERING

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of women, ages 50+, who gathered for a reunion. Some of us haven't seen each other for over 35 years! The house was a clean, spacious place for reminiscing, playing games, cooking meals, and relaxing. The sleeping spaces were ample and comfortable, with the house being extremely clean. We used this as our base and traveled to Gettysburg (30 mins away), Frederick Maryland, and hiked in the Cactotin Mountains. We didn't want to leave!
Lots of reviews intimated that the bathroom locations were less than ideal. We were concerned. However, we had no problems with privacy at all. The showers were wonderful and the home and beds were extremely comfortable. If we ever come back to this area again we will rent this home without hesitation!

GREAT WEEKEND GET-AWAY SPOT, CLOSE TO DC & BALTIMO

Great Weekend Get-Away Spot, Close to DC & Baltimo
  • 5 of 5
Terrific house for group get-away. 4 bedrooms (although only 2 bathrooms). Lovely, open kitchen that makes cooking with a group easy and fun. Two great family rooms - good for games, reading, etc. And good location, near Catocin Mountain hiking. Really nice property. Only downside is that the bathrooms are located in the bedrooms so 2 rooms have them and 2 don't have easy access.

PERFECT PLACE TO RING IN THE NEW YEAR!

  • 5 of 5
I hate to shop so I plan events for the family over the holidays. This was the perfect place for the WHOLE family, we had from age 6 to 66 during our stay! The house is just gorgeous and the kitchen is well appointed so needless to say we ate well over our holiday break! There's something for everyone's interest close to this home...we hiked, visited Gettysburg and Fredricksburg and for those who do like to shop there are a lot of creative small shops and outlets nearby. I've got to tell ya though, the house is so cozy and appealing it's hard to leave! Wish we could have stayed a little longer, there was so much to do and we just ran out of time, but it's a good excuse to plan to visit again.

GREAT GETAWAY FOR FAMILY WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We booked this property for our family and friends for a graduation weekend. Our son attended MICA in Baltimore and the hour drive was just far enough away to give us a quiet retreat, but easily allow us to commute for the festivities . Though the property is a ways from the freeway, there was no trouble finding it. This log home has quite the history and the amenities are top of the line. In fact, the property is better than what is shown in the photos! The home is spotless and filled with beautiful antiques. We loved the country setting and comfortable, homey feel. The bathroom situation could be a bit awkward for those not overly familiar with one another as both bathrooms are off bedrooms and there is none on the first floor. The kitchen is well stocked and the owners are most helpful in answering questions or making suggestions for things to do in the area. Their home is nearby and we had the chance to visit a few times.We ranged in age from 22- 83 and all of us had no trouble finding something to do. Gettysburg is just down the street and so is the quaint town of Frederick.

The chimney and foundation are built of native stone, recycled from two barn foundations. The farm house we live in (Bill, Chris) is a very rare MORAVIAN home, built in 1794. Its original owner was a member of the local Moravian congregation in GRACEHAM, MD., two miles away as the crow flies. Like history? Just ask!!!!!
