Antietam Lookout Cottage

Perfect Family Getaway!

Perfect Family Getaway!

My husband and I and our two daughters (ages 9 and 14) stayed at The Lookout for four nights. The past reviewers have said it all–immaculately clean, comfortable, and with everything you’d need for a relaxed getaway for four. We had breakfast and all our dinners at the cabin, and the kitchen is well-stocked with all the utensils you might need. Sandy and her husband Brian met us at the cabin and were very helpful with suggestions of where to go and what to see. They recommended a terrific farm stand for fresh corn, and Sandy was kind enough to let us borrow a big pot for cooking it! Delicious! The view is spectacular, and the neighbors were quiet. We think we heard a coyote far off in the distance one night. Our girls loved their room, and the ping pong table in the basement was a huge hit for the entire family. The central air conditioning worked perfectly and was quiet. There was plenty of storage for our things, and the washer and dryer in the basement were very useful (detergent included!). We were not able to figure out the television, but with so many fun things to do in the area (tubing on the Shenandoah, hiking Maryland Heights, visiting Harper’s Ferry and Shepherdstown, touring the Antietam Battlefield, swimming in the lake at Greenbrier State Park) we didn’t need it. And if we’d wanted to use it, Sandy and Brian were always available by phone to help us. Overall, our stay was comfortable and relaxing. I’d recommend the Lookout to anyone looking to unplug, relax and enjoy a beautiful part of Maryland that is so close to so many interesting places to see and things to do.
