About Deb Moxley

Dan & I have always loved the outdoors, especially the forests. So, when he found this property, it was like it was destined for us to live here. & here we are, 12 years later, still enjoying our little piece of Heaven. Lots of upkeep & work I grant you; but well worth all of our efforts!!

When we purchased the property, there was this little weekend cabin placed on the second parcel. Dan & I lived there while building our home for when he decides to retire. If ever!

Deb Moxley purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Deb Moxley chose Sabillasville

Some years ago, we decided to share the cabin & the quiet & solitude that we enjoy so much. Plenty of wildlife & birds to observe. The sounds of the creek alone are enough to make the tension disappear. It's just a peaceful place to kick back & enjoy yourself or a good book or reconnect with family or each other. In this hectic life we live, nowadays, it's nice to know there is a quiet little place to escape to Revuenate, relax or take a much needed walk in the woods.

Guestbook comments from the manager

thank you so much for allowing us the pleasure to stay at your cabin. We had a good time ( peaceful compared to the hustle & bustle of the world) and really enjoyed the wildlife and serene setting. It is a good reminder of how connected we are to the earth & all of God's creations. Maybe next time we will all be able to enjoy it. My wife was working; but it reminded her of home so she enjoyed it some too. Once again thank you for your consideration & the grand tour & being able to see & feeed the deer. We really appreciate you guys. God Bless You All! Quanah, Michelle, Matthew, Caleb & Kalie

Just what I was looking for!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted a quiet place where I could relax, sleep as much as I needed, read, and get away from the rat race that is my life. This was just the place. It is winter right now, so the trees were bare, but it was quiet; I could hear the stream rushing over the rocks, birds talking to each other, and an owl hooting at night. There are things to do nearby, but that isn't what I was looking for. I stayed warm and cozy inside and went for a walk in the woods, over the stream on a brisk but sunny afternoon. I had time to thoroughly unwind, and the cold I've been fighting for some weeks even got better. You don't have to go all the way down to some Caribbean Island and fight the crowds to get rest and relaxation. You just have to go a dozen or so miles north of Frederick, Md.

The perfect place for total relaxation. Close proximity to Gettysburg, Frederick, Hagerstown etc

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great. A true cabin feel with comfortable beds and furniture. Plenty of places outdoors to hike and enjoy. Great if you want to cook in the kitchen or use the grill. Amenities are close by and there is so much to do in the surrounding area. If anyone wants peace and quiet no noise except turkeys, birds, deer etc this is the best fit. We will return...

This is an amazing piece of heaven. This was the calming retreat our family needed to recharge our energy due to our busy lives. The cabin had everything we needed. We were able to just enjoy the simple pleasures of life. The babbling brook outside the cabin or the warmth from the fireplace to enjoy our yummy Smores. Thank you Deb and Dan for being the hosts with the mosts.

We loved being at the cabin! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Once again, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. Deb and Dan make everything so perfect. We have been coming here for a couple of years and have enjoyed our stay regardless of the season. Summers are great for hiking around the stream and winters are great for reading and snuggling up by the fire. Our dog, Dolly, loves it, as well!!!!

Can’t wait for our next trip up here!!!
