About Gary Hill

I am a retired restaurant design/engineer. I have spent most of my working life in southern California but also 15 years in Guam and Hawaii. After retiring I have spent the last 10 years doing adventures I didn't have time for when I was younger. I've thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail and the Israeli National Trail. Also bicycled across our country three times. I've climbed Mt Kilimanjaro in Africa and Mt Fuji in Japan. I am an AT trail maintainer and boundary monitor and also volunteer at the Appalachian Trail Conservancy Visitors Center in Harpers Ferry. I also spend much of my time in Metro DC with my fiance Taeko.

Gary Hill purchased this bungalow in 2012

Warm and cozy

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for the quiet getaway my wife and I were after. A true escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Enjoyed quiet time reconnecting by the fire.

Perfectly Quaint Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect! Tucked above the cute shops in Harpers Ferry and the train station. We were a party of 4, 2 couples. The second bedroom is a loft, small but totally doable. We loved building fires in the wood stove and enjoying the view. We look forward to returning!

Treehouse Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a wonderful mixture of privacy, coziness, and thoughtfulness. You can walk to food, shops, scenic views, & trailheads. The notes Gary has placed to explain bits & pieces of the home are like easter eggs, and we plan to return for a longer visit so we can discover more of them and of Harpers Ferry.
