After retiring from business in the D.C. area, I wanted a small business that allowed me to spend time doing what I love to do most, Fish! My wife, Suzanne, and I have eight grown children, and seven grandchildren, and with this property, I have room for them to visit!

There is no prettier place than the Savage River, all of the seasons offer their own special brand of beauty. The fishing is so good, I have only to walk out the back door to find it!
Fishing is number one, but there are hiking trails in the adjoining Savage River Forest, kayaking on the river during special releases, but most of the time, the Savage River Lake is calm and easy for any level of boater (non-motorized only). Biking on the Savage River Road is very popular with those who enjoy hill-climbing, not for the feint of heart!
We had a wonderful time at the cabin. The sound of the river in our backyard was great. The firewood was on the deck waiting for us and we thoroughly enjoyed using the fire pit.
We rarely go to the same vacation house twice but I plan to return to stay at Brownie Cottage again.
Perfect location for fly fishing. Lots of great river access. River is full of fish but they are smarter than most humans. House is very nice and comfortable. Great deck and yard with fire pit. Charlie at fly shop is great.
My girlfriend and I arrived earlier than expected, but the owner was very flexible and let us settle in upon arrival. The cabin was clean (we stayed in Brownie), up-to-date and very cozy. The river is literally in your backyard so it is impossible to not relax. There is a large lake and trails near by with great hiking. By the back next to the river is a fire pit -- which made the each night even more great! The main thing I'd have to say about our experience are the amazing views of the river and side of the mountain -- truly amazing! The owner is great and made our stay awesome. Highly recommend considering this if you are looking to get away!
