Welcome to Shepherdstown. Step back in time, while enjoying the comforts of a quaint country cottage, and walk to restaurants, shops, cafes, theater and university functions. Celebrate the seasons of Shepherdstown with 4th of July parades, ice cream socials, the Rumsey Radio Hour, the annual crossing of the Potomac River, Santa arriving by antique horse and buggy, an Easter Egg hunt, and so much more.
Visit the areas numerous Civil War Battlefields (Antietam, Sharpsburg, Harpers Ferry and Shepherdstown), including several local museums, and still be home in time to walk to restaurants for dinner and a movie. For outdoor enthusiasts, there is biking and hiking on the C&O canal - bring your own equipment or rent it in town. In the warmer months rafting and tubing are nearby on the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers. Shop the Prime Outlet Mall in nearby Hagerstown or Leesburg, or the artisans of nearby towns such as Harpers Ferry, Boonsboro, Waterford, Hillsboro and historic Frederick MD.
Here I am travelling in Ecuador.
As a new retiree, I love to travel. I have travelled with and without the grandkids for many years, always staying in vacation rentals. So I decided to share my pet/child-friendly home with other vacationers, and now I travel even more!
