Overview

Thurmont Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 14-20)

Looking for a Great Vacation? This Real Log Cabin is the perfect 'back to nature' get-away. Just a few miles from the Presidential Retreat, Camp David, there are plenty of options for things to do. In the Winter, the Cabin is close to great Snow Skiing & Snow Tubing. In the Summer, we're close to Sandy Beaches without the crowds and it's just a stone throw from Maryland LARGEST WATERFALLS. If nature is what you like, it does not get any better than this! Walk a few steps out the door and you are within 5000 acre Cunningham Falls State Park. Like to Plan Ahead?? Looking for a peaceful summer alternative to the ocean that has no tolls? Look no further.

As an added bonus, last year the 100+ acre farm right next door opened their own Winery and Distillery. Pretty Cool place to just sit, have some homegrown wine and/or vodka and enjoy the beautiful scenery with family and/or friends.

Civil War Buffs?? Battles were fought just minutes away. Just a short drive (one hour) from Washington DC and Baltimore, it is a wonderful way to get away from the crowds and stay in one of the prettiest, most rustic mountain areas of the east coast.

If nature is not what you are looking for, there are shopping malls and movie theaters nearby. A few minutes more and you can sightsee at places like Gettysburg, Harper's Ferry, or one of many other great Civil War locations. The Washington Monument and the Baltimore Inner Harbor are just a short drive. We're centered between all of these places. There are three TV's, DVD Player, VCR, CD Players, and Computers. Also, there is a regulation Pool Table, Air Hockey, Foosball, Darts, and more to keep the young at heart entertained. The fully-stocked gourmet kitchen is right next to the Greatroom with a 23 foot tall stone woodburning fireplace and entertainment area. When it's cold outside, there is nothing like a roaring fire in our Log Cabin and there are tons of firewood for your enjoyment. There's even a grate so you can cook like the settlers did (kids of all ages love this). The large porch and grilling deck feature a spectacular view for simply relaxing.

Here's what people say about the Log Cabin in the Woods:

'We had a wonderfully relaxing time - perfect in all regards. The porch chairs were the perfect addition.' ~Judy

'We found everything in good order, and had a very good time in Thurmont. Amazing that you built the whole house yourself!

Thanks for everything!' ~Leendert

'We had the BEST time and the cabin was so comfortable for us. Again, if you'd like any kind of recommendation, please just let me know what format you'd like it in. Also, you can feel free to give my e-mail address out to anyone who'd like a personal reference.' ~ Margie

'The cabin was and is amazing. My whole family had a great time and it really made my dad's birthday special. We all can't wait to come back. Thanks again,' ~Brian

'We had a great time. There were just the three of us and plenty of room. You must be very proud of putting together a structure like that. I'm pretty handy but I would not tackle something like that. We were lucky enough to have a fire for several nights and then it got very warm. We used your gas grill for steaks one night. Can you believe, we didn't even have time to shoot a game of pool. Thanks again for sharing your cabin and I'm positive we will return.' ~Vernon & Elaine

'The cabin was great! We all enjoyed it. My brother-in-law wants to come again by himself to enjoy the solitude without 12 other people there! ' ~Rita

'Enjoyed the cabin very much - it's just the type of cabin we'd like to purchase to have for our visits east to see family and friends. If you ever are interested in selling it, please let us know.

Thanks so much,' ~Chris & Lisa

It was a great weekend, and the cabin was the perfect place to be. Went to Liberty on Sat. where some did ski, and made a quick trip to the Falls today. Other than that we stayed in and played board games and the kids were playing their TV games. There were a couple of pool tournaments also.

Everything went very nicely, and had a wonderful time. Thank you so much for allowing us to rent.' ~Linda and Chuck

'Great HOME!!! We loved staying at your cabin in the woods, it was better then we thought for a bunch of guys to get away from life for a little while. In time we will be re-visiting and recommending your second home.

Thank you again,' ~andrew

'The time at the cabin as I said was needed and very pleasurable. We plan to come down again, possibly next year - only with the wives this time. The word has spread about the 'cabin in the woods' and you will hear more from us...

Thanks again for a great time!!' ~Steve

'We really enjoyed your cabin and wish to thank you for opening your home to us. We tell people about our relaxing vacation in the cabin at Thurmont.

Thank you.' ~Judy

'Hi Dave! We really enjoyed our stay. The group voted to visit there next year as well, so yes, let's convert that deposit into the next deposit. I'll check with everyone about which weekend to reserve and get back to you soon. thanks!' ~dani

'Well your cabin is wonderful. The girls had a great time. We were camping in luxury. Thank you for calling to make sure we were all set up. We loved everything about your cabin,.

Thank you for letting us experience camping in luxury and we hope to come back in the fall possibly.'

~Wendy and the Girls from Troop 2037

'What a splendid time we had at the “cabin.” Our whole family, even all the grandchildren, came to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. They treated us like a queen and king all week-end. The cabin is lovely and memorable. Sitting in the swing in the early morning takes you away from the world and helps you connect with God. Thank you for the cabin. May God bless you as you provide the cabin for rest.' ~Gilbert and Jeri

The list of happy 'Cabin People' (as I call my guests) just goes on and on. For more notes from guests see the Log Cabin in the Woods Personal Website (link lower down on this page).

Great Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

As advertised, the cabin is a beautiful place to get away. Spent a long weekend there with friends. Took hikes in the woods, loved the fire pit out back. Plenty of room inside for all. The fireplace kept us nice and warm. Very comfortable and we recommend to all! Thanks, Dave!

Rustic secluded cabin in the woods

  • 4 of 5

We came to the cabin over a holiday weekend and had a great time. It's very rustic, charming and tucked back from the road so there's plenty of privacy. It definitely feels lived in. There are a couple things that could use updating/cleaning but all in all I would definitely recommend for families or large groups looking for a place to get away from it all.

Getting away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place, all the amenities you would want to get away, nice and secluded. Not too far from fantastic mountain biking at the Frederick Watershed, as well as close proximity to Cunningham Falls State Park

Enjoy!

great place

  • 5 of 5

we are a group of college friends who have been getting together twice a year for 20 years at various cabins. We found this gem and have been repeat renters and love the place. A great place at a great location. All the amenities of home, but tucked away in the woods---could not ask for more.

Cabin Oasis !!

  • 5 of 5

Wow!, we had a great weekend at the cabin. Everything worked out so smoothly. We had 10 people show up for my friend's bachelor party. Everyone was impressed with the accommodations and the style of the cabin. What a nice oasis from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Great for entertaining both indoors and out. The game room downstairs was a big hit.

I received plenty of compliments for finding this all- inclusive, very comfortable, convenient and backwoods atmosphere. I feel that I must turn these compliments over to you (Dave)for creating this masterpiece. It felt like we were out where no one could bother us - but in actuality, it's less than three miles from stores and services.

Thanks again for all your help and coordination to make this a memorable weekend.
