A Top Notch Place To Stay!

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay while sightseeing in Gettysburg, Antietam and Harper’s Ferry during Oct. 1 – 6. What a perfect spot! The pictures on VRBO are exactly what the house looks like, but it is even better when you get there. The owner greeted us in person with a welcome basket of treats including coffee, tea, popcorn, and homemade honey! Delicious! The Lookout is exceptionally clean, updated, and comfortable with plenty of space to hang clothes and store gear. The kitchen is simple and functional with all the implements needed for easy meal prep. Sandy has provided a huge binder filled with flyers and maps to local places of interest. She also is a wealth of knowledge about the best back roads and special spots off the tourist grid. Over a period of 5 days, we enjoyed Gettysburg, Cunningham Falls State Park, Antietam, Sharpsburg, Shepherdstown, and Harper’s Ferry. For groceries we shopped Weis Market in Boonesboro, Red Byrd’s quick store at the end of our road, and a produce stand in Boonesboro filled with local produce such as winter squash and local fresh apples. Of course the front deck of the home is the namesake of The Lookout. What an amazing view! We would recommend The Lookout to anyone wanting to visit this area as a great value, comfortable and safe place to stay and would welcome a return visit!
