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.

Very private. Very romantic and very close to everything in Harpers Ferry.
Privacy and location
This is a perfect little spot for enjoying Harper's Ferry! The property is a quick walk from everything--don't be alarmed by the hills--we got used to them quickly. The cottage is clean and well decorated. Everything you need is there! Gary, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. We were so impressed to learn of his dedication to the Appalachian Trail and that he is a through hiker!! Don't hesitate to stay here!!!!
This is my second trip to this rental, both with my wife. Had some great weather and took advantage of the outdoor space with small fire pit. Great people watching from the gazebo or porch! This home has just about everything so no need to pack heavy. Just ask the owner and he will reply, very prompt every time.
We love to hit the trails in the national park and this location makes it so easy to do so. Once you park there is no need to get back in the car.
The home itself is so cozy and charming, mostly updated but still has character. The owner always has firewood well stocked and even provides firestarters and smaller kiln dried pieces to get it going. The bed on the first floor is on the softer side and very comfy! Can't speak to the upstairs loft. Love the space up there and would be great for our kids next trip.
Definitely recommend it! Rates here are a steal!
This was a perfect place for a stay in Harper's Ferry. The house is cozy, clean and perfectly located for exploring the area. Highly recommended.
My wife and I had a great stay here for our weekend getaway in Harpers Ferry. The location was very convenient for visiting historic Harpers Ferry and hiking the Appalachian Trail. It is also a convenient location to get to. I took the MARC train after work and it was a five minute walk from the station, while my wife drove and was able to park on the property's driveway (which is a big bonus as parking is not easily found close to town). In addition to the great location, the cottage itself was beautiful and clean. It was nice that toiletries and kitchen necessities were available for use. I would highly recommend staying here for anyone visiting the area!
Great place to stay in Harpers Ferry. Had everything we needed. Cozy, clean, two-minute walk to historic downtown--doesn't get much better than that!
My dogs and I had a wonderful stay at Gary's cottage. We found it very clean and cozy. The view of the river and walks down Church St. were amazing. Dinner at Bistro 1840 was very good! I will check his availability the next time I am in the area. We loved the outdoor spaces too, but it was a little chilly while we were there.
