After extensive personal travel and military moves, Shepherdstown is the place to which we always dreamed of returning. Following retirement from active duty in the US Coast Guard we have made Shepherdstown our permanent home and we look forward to hosting you here at Perchasta Cottage so you can experience the many things that have made us fall in love with Shepherdstown and this property again and again.

Tari & Keith Janssen purchased this cottage in 1969

The beautiful, rural setting and numerous cultural and historical opportunities make Shepherdstown the ideal place to visit.

Come stay with us at Perchasta Cottage and learn about all the things that make our vacation home rental 'green.' We also offer home tours of the new energy efficient home we built on an adjacent property. The unique 'green' features of this home will surprise and delight. We love sharing our experience with others about green building, the different systems we chose to install in the home and our reasons for doing so. If this is an area of interest for you, please don't hesitate to ask for a tour.

We actually stayed in the Loft apartment attached to the main house since the cottage was rented. I am not an easy person to please, but it gets an A+++. Everything about the place was excellent. It is on a beautiful serene property set away from the main road. There are walking trails on the property with lots of blackberry bushes just waiting to ripen and be picked. The owners encourage you to pick them as well as the veggies from their garden. On arrival there was a jar of honey from their apiary, yummy. I brought my dog and they welcomed him. The loft was decorated beautifully. It could have been the centerfold for Better Homes and Gardens. They thought of every detail and amenity. It had a bedroom with a queen size bed and a full size bed under the eaves in the living room/kitchen area which worked out well for my girlfriend and I since we needed our separate spaces. The living room had a large picture window that looked out onto the serene property, which is a certified Tree Farm. It is just a short drive to town where there are some nice restaurants and shops. Also close to the C&O canal, great for kayaking, hiking etc. I can't wait to go back and hike, shop or just relax in one of the lawn chairs with a good book. I can't imagine how lovely the larger rental must be. If I bring some more friends we will be sure to rent that one. I am sure it is equally as nice. And, to add to the pleasant experience the owners are lovely, not intrusive but there if you need them.

We were very pleased with this property! All descriptions on the site were accurate. The owners were great hosts, there to answer any questions that we had. The area is beautiful, and there is a ton of history to see. The decor was gorgeous and very up to date. The grounds were beautiful and there were animals and nature to observe also. We would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful Place To Stay

My husband and I were looking for a comfortable place to stay near Shepherdstown. We definitely found the perfect place with the Perchasta Cottage. We always travel with two well behaved dogs, so a location that allows pets and has lots of outdoor opportunities to walk the dogs is a priority. The cottage is incredibly close to Shepherdstown, a couple of minutes drive and you are downtown. The location is very quiet and beautifully situated on the tree farm. Right away we felt at home in this cottage. It is not only pretty, but also very well layed out, easy to get around and enough space to just comfortably hang out. We arrived when the weather was very cold, so we got to really enjoy the perfectly decorated and furnished cottage. The bedrooms are both very nice size, have beautiful beds with excellent mattresses and bedding. The kitchen is fairly large with every one could wish for. The whole cottage appears to be new and everything is impecably taken care of. The garage is a great feature, one can enter it directly from the house. There are several great restaurants in Shepherdstown, an absolut must is brunch at the Bavarian Inn. We will certainly return again to this wonderful cottage, thank you for making our stay so enjoyable!

What a wonderful and cozy cottage. Has everything you need. Had so much room for all of my daughter's bridesmaids to get make-up and hair done and get dressed. It was just down the road from the beautiful tiny little church. So close to downtown which is adorable. I highly recommend this cottage for a weekend get away.

This was a wonderful place to stay near Harper's Ferry and Antietam National Battlefields and other attractions. It was located in a natural setting and had a wonderful deck to relax and watch the deer and birds.

The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The hosts though of all the necessary amenities and they offer their guests vegetables from their garden. We asked for a few items like lawn chairs and a cooler which they let us borrow. And the honey they provide guests is so good. It was difficult to leave this cozy and comfortable cottage, but we plan on returning someday to enjoy the peace and quite.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the deck and the natural setting for wildlife viewing. It really is a peaceful and lovely view off the deck and we have so many different kinds of animals on the property. You never know what you're going to see. We look forward to your next visit.
