Gary Hill purchased this bungalow in 2012
Very private. Very romantic and very close to everything in Harpers Ferry.
Privacy and location
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!
Cabin is cozy and comfortable. Well equipped to cook a simple Thanksgiving meal for three. Great location.
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.
The cottage was fabulous. Gary thought of everything. Our stay was so peaceful!!! We stayed out on patio most the time and enjoyed your koi pond. Thank you, thank you for your lovely home. Sincerely, Maureen, Sally & Joy
We enjoyed our short stay. The place utilizes all of the space well. The patio and garden area were lovely to sit in each evening with our dogs. Good food at Bistro1840! Gary was always very responsive and the place has all the bits and pieces you will need.
It was very peaceful. The house felt like something out of a novel. I had all the anemeties I needed. The town was picture perfect. Excellent stay, I would go back. Thanks again Gary.
