About Gary Hill

I am a retired restaurant design/engineer. I have spent most of my working life in southern California but also 15 years in Guam and Hawaii. After retiring I have spent the last 10 years doing adventures I didn't have time for when I was younger. I've thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail and the Israeli National Trail. Also bicycled across our country three times. I've climbed Mt Kilimanjaro in Africa and Mt Fuji in Japan. I am an AT trail maintainer and boundary monitor and also volunteer at the Appalachian Trail Conservancy Visitors Center in Harpers Ferry. I also spend much of my time in Metro DC with my fiance Taeko.

Gary Hill purchased this bungalow in 2012

Treehouse Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a wonderful mixture of privacy, coziness, and thoughtfulness. You can walk to food, shops, scenic views, & trailheads. The notes Gary has placed to explain bits & pieces of the home are like easter eggs, and we plan to return for a longer visit so we can discover more of them and of Harpers Ferry.

Nicely finished cottage with great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our short stay. The place utilizes all of the space well. The patio and garden area were lovely to sit in each evening with our dogs. Good food at Bistro1840! Gary was always very responsive and the place has all the bits and pieces you will need.

A perfect getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was lovely and the location was perfect! A quick walk into town for sightseeing or food and a five minute drive to river rafting, zip lining etc. Gary thought of every detail a guest might need! I would definitely recommend this property to friends and look forward to another stay here in the future!

Sweet house with a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Hotels in the historic section of Harpers Ferry are nonexistent, but this little house served us perfectly well and has much more character than a hotel. It is an adorable house with everything you need and is just a short walk to the rivers, trails, National Park Service property and restaurants. Could not have been more perfect!
