Shepherdstown Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Perchasta Farm Cottage is the first “green,” sustainable vacation home rental in Jefferson County West Virginia. The cottage is located on 32 rural acres of managed timberland just outside of Shepherdstown, WV and co-located with one of the “greenest” homes in Jefferson County.

We welcome you to come and stay in Perchasta Farm Cottage. Relax in the sophisticated country elegance of the cottages' décor, enjoy the outdoor environment and explore the surrounding area. This 2 bedroom cottage is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy a short weekend visit or an extended stay.

Nearby Shepherdstown, home to Shepherd University, offers much in the way of history, cultural entertainment, recreation, fine dining and unique shopping opportunities. Of particular interest for Civil War history buffs is the cottages' close proximity to both Antietam Battlefield and Harpers Ferry.

The Contemporary American Theater Festival, The Goose Route Dance Festival, The American Conservation Film Festival, The Mountain Heritage Arts & Crafts Festival (Spring & Fall), Shepherdstown Street Festival, Over the Mountain Studio Tour, and numerous parades and events throughout the year are just a few of the things to see and do in and around Shepherdstown.

Comfortable Rural West Virginia Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for an extended weekend in mid-September 2014. The owner was prompt in replying to emails and arranging for the rental. The cottage is modern, comfortable, and very well maintained and equipped. It was apparent that the owner has taken considerable care in anticipating guests' needs.

Charmingly local. Peacefully remote!

  • 5 of 5
We had the opportunity to spend a long weekend here and it was absolutely wonderful! Our son graduated from Shepherd University and we needed a place to stay that was convenient. We didn't expect to find such a beautiful and perfectly situated spot. Tari and Keith have a gorgeous property and we sure appreciate them sharing it with us. We actually stayed in "the loft" since the cottage was unavailable. I was a little apprehensive about the loft but they sure do make it a lovely stay. It is decorated charmingly appropriate. It is situated so perfectly you don't even realize it is part of the main house.
We expected to see some wildlife but were delighted with the frequency of their presence. One night we counted at least 12 deer. We watched them from the living room, also, turkeys.
I wish we would have had more time to stay. I hope to get the opportunity again to visit the region, stay at Perchasta Farm. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone needing a comfortable, beautiful but convenient home base for your vacation to the area.
Tari and Keith were a delight to work with. I just can’t say enough about Perchasta Farm. Thank you, Tari for everything. It was too short but wonderful.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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!

Wedding Weekend:)

  • 5 of 5
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.
