We had a wonderful time staying at The Lookout for the weekend. It is a beautifully decorated and equipped vacation house with an excellent view from the deck overlooking the Antietam Battlefield just as the pictures portrayed. It is situated on a wooded lot making it a quiet place to listen to the birds, see the stars at night, and just enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. The battlefield is very close by. We kayaked on the Antietam Creek for an hour and a half. What a wonderful, relaxing experience floating down the creek one afternoon. We saw an osprey, some ducks, and lots of song birds. We found the Burkholder bakery in nearby Sharpsburg which offered delicious baked goods at very reasonable prices. We also found a local farmers market in neighboring Shepherdstown, W. Va., where we purchased fresh produce to take home.
It was a perfect place for the two of us to get away and celebrate a birthday. We would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys getting away to a quiet place, and also enjoys participating in nearby activities.
