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 Maryland

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

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying at this cabin. The Moxleys always make sure we have all the comforts of home. The cabin is clean and you can't beat the location if you are looking for peace and quite and to be among nature. We live in a congested city with lots of traffic and we always look forward to the solitude here. So very relaxing.

Great relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a nice, peaceful, quiet getaway for Labor Day weekend and we certainly found it here! The cabin was comfortable and well taken care of, very well stocked with any items you may have forgotten to bring. We loved relaxing on the porch and playing some board and card games with the sound of the wilderness and the stream nearby. At night we enjoyed a campfire in the backyard. It is a perfect little getaway if you love being surrounded by nature!

So Beautiful, Charming and Chock-ful of everything

  • 5 of 5

This is the cutest, loveliest, cabin on beautifully maintained yard with an even more beautiful picnic area on the stream. Dan and Deb are the perfect hosts, sending detailed directions and information on the cabin. Everything is there that you would need in the kitchen, firepit, tv with vhs or dvd, flashlights, lanterns, radio. Deb tells you that linens are provided and they are lovely, plush and so comfy. The hike up and down the mountain is a treat in itself. Nearby is Cunningham Falls State Park and a Zoo if you want to explore further. My dog and I enjoyed just staying at the cabin and the stream. I, sadly, had to leave early for a work issue. Pretty hard to get an internet signal there, which is a good thing in itself. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to escape the rat race for a little bit of mountain paradise.

A Wonderful Place to Unwind

  • 5 of 5

Raven Haven is an awesome place to get away from everything. Loved the screened porch! We sat out there every evening while we were there. The sound of the stream made it perfect to relax. Kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to fix your meals. Our dogs loved the large open living room. Lots of hiking in Catoctin Forest, and Cunningham Falls. We will return in cooler weather so we can have a fire in the stone fire place!

Off the Grid and Worth the Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the cabin, used it as our Home base as we went to Antietam, Cunningham Falls, Catoctin State Park, and shopping in the small town of Fredrick. The cabin had everything we needed and could want. Peaceful area, babbling stream, nature at its finest. We put it on our list to go back to during the summer months. We cant wait to use the firepit and dip our toes in the stream. Our dog Lefty, loved it too !
