About Catherine and David

We have owned the Sharpsburg Cottage since 2000.

Catherine and David purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Catherine and David chose West Virginia

Because it is only 1 hr from the city. It is a great get away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. You can really relax here at the cottage. Take a nap on the hammock or unwind in the hot tub.

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with this property because of its location. The C&O Canal Tow Path is located just beyond our front yard. We spend time walking and biking along the path during our visits to the house. There is a small country store two doors down where you can walk and get ice cream. One of the first things we do is walk down to the river and take a dip. We are five minutes from Antietam and close to many other local attractions. We would spend every weekend in the country if we could. The cottage is fully equipped as if it were are primary residence. Our lives have become very busy so we don't spend as much time as we would like, so we have decided to share our wonderful home with others. ENJOY!!

Quiet vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little getaway spot. The house itself is very comfortable, with a large living area and well-equipped kitchen. Both bedrooms were nice, although the downstairs bedroom is primarily for kids (which we have). The deck and hot tub were highlights, and the downstairs patio and fire pit area were also very nice, with tables and seating. The best part of the house was the location- close to us from DC, but incredibly quiet and tranquil, with beautiful views of the Potomac, and right across the street from the C&O canal. I would recommend this place, and we'll likely be back!

Shepherdstown stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend stay even in early December. The house was very comfortable, clean and as described. We are considering coming back in the spring when we can use the canal trail on our bikes and enjoy the river.

Our 2016 Summer Stay at the Quiet Country Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is our third trip to the Quiet Country Cottage. We absolutely coming to the cottage. It is very quiet and homey. There is plenty to do in the nearby towns. We took advantage of the bicycles in the basement and biked the C&O canal. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch watching the birds and feeling the breeze. We used the grill and cooked out a few nights, sat on the porch swing, and just enjoyed the quiet. We actually had cell service on the porch (this may be new), so we didn't have to walk down to the end of the drive way to make a cell call. Everything was nice and clean when we arrived with a fresh set of towels to use. We forgot a few items (sugar, foil wrap) and it was nice that the house had these items in the pantry already. My husband went to Nutters (the local ice cream place) and must have had twelve scoops of ice cream all together. They make their own ice cream and we enjoy seeing the same staff each time. I highly recommend a stay there.

We plan to go back this October depending on availability.

Fabulous cottage for a great get away. Location is perfect for bike rides on the canal and kayaking on the Potomac. Cottage is very nice. Enjoyed dinners on the deck, soaking in hot tub and reading on the swing on the back porch. Will definitely return again.
