We absolutely loved The Lookout and our hosts couldn’t have been more pleasant—they thought of everything from fluffy towels to splenda. The cottage was immaculate and the kitchen was perfectly stocked. We even had a Christmas tree and a present of homemade jam and honey—thanks! I grew up nearby, but never knew about this wonderful ridge overlooking the battlefield and valley. The owner has made a huge notebook full of info about all there is to do and see within a short, easy drive. We especially liked the bakery over on High Street in Boonsboro–never knew it was there until now. We are already planning our trip back this spring when we’ll have more time to explore.
