We stayed two nights with our kids and dogs (2 of each). The countryside is just gorgeous, and there is so much to do so nearby -- too much for one weekend. We visited 4 parks, including Catoctin, Gambrill, Cunningham Falls, and Greenbrier. Great trails for dog owners. The hosts recommended (in the material they provided in the cabin for guests) some access spots nearby to park the car and get on the trails at Greenbrier state park -- this was perfect! A sunny, beautiful fall weekend day with NO ONE else on the trail!? Wow. Cunningham Falls trail was crowded on Saturday but still very fun. Coming "home" after hiking was such a joy. We cooked in the cabin, and spent the two evenings there playing games and having family time/reading/watching a movie. We felt so free without wifi to tempt us to "work." The fenced-in area for the dogs was great, and the gate to the yard is just a few steps from the cabin's front door. The cabin was so cozy and built with so many nice touches, and such a creative design! We had very good nights of sleep -- the beds were perfectly comfortable. We parents took the fold-out sofa bed, and each kid got a "loft" bed. The dogs slept downstairs with us, and did not mind a bit not using the ladder/steps! Thanks to the owners for an easy, up front scheduling/payment process, quick communication, clear and honest descriptions/instructions, and a super-clean cabin with just-right amenities!!
