Antietam Lookout Cottage

Cozy cabin with a view


My husband and I recently stayed at The Lookout while visiting several Civil War battlefields. It took us about 2 minutes to KNOW that we had found the perfect place for our week-long stay! I can only reiterate what the 44 preceding reviews have said…the location is awesome, the view is gorgeous, the house is meticulously clean and comfortable…it was truly our “home away from home.” Sandy responded within an hour of my initial inquiry into the house, and couldn’t have been more pleasant or helpful. (Sandy…I know we would be friends if I didn’t live 18 hours away!) There were many little thoughtful details at the house that we so appreciated…from the binoculars and the citronella candles to the binder FULL of restaurant suggestions, maps, brochures, (even the audio CD’s for both the Gettysburg and Antietam self-guided tours!) to the welcome basket of coffee, tea and granola bars…I could go on and on. We thoroughly enjoyed the restaurants that we visited per Sandy’s suggestion (especially loved the Dobbin House Tavern in Gettysburg!). We enjoyed our early morning coffee and beautiful scenic view from the deck each day, with only the chirping birds and an occasional woodpecker hard at work breaking the peaceful silence. We were usually back at the house before dark, and the sunsets are spectacular…I took way too many pictures! We were also visited by some deer on a couple occasions. If we are ever back in this area, we wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else! Thanks so much Sandy and Brian…we were blessed by your lovely cottage and warm hospitality
