Incredible Experience--Perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Laura's place is the perfect location and has everything you need for a large group. If you and a large group are planning on hanging out on the river with RiverRiders, I wouldn't recommend anywhere else. Laura and her team were so helpful throughout our stay. Will definitely stay again!

80% good, 20% not

  • 3 of 5

I stayed here with my 2 young children and both sets of grandparents the week of July 4th.

What we liked:

* Very spacious! Great family room and dinner table for entertaining and cooking your own meals (We were surprised how big it was as the pics don't do it justice)

* Hot tub was nice and clean (it was 90 degree weather so we didn't use it much...)

* Nicely located by River Riders if you want to enjoy the activities, and the house was well stocked with family games and activities

What we didn't like:

* Poor appliances - dish washer didn't work and the coffee machine took 30 minutes to make a pot (would recommend bringing paper plates / cutlery, etc. otherwise be prepared to hand wash)

* The bedroom on the ground floor was musty, the airco didn't work properly, and the window had a huge gap in it (easy for break ins and releasing cool air)

* Although the linens and bed sheets were clean, the floors, walls and windows of the house could have been cleaner

* No umbrella outside on the patio or blinds in the kitchen window where the sun shines 75% of the day - we ended up going to WalMart and buying a cheap one for the week

Great Adventure Weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property for our Fathers Day getaway. Tubing, hot tubbing, fire putting and wonderful space. All good. Special thanks to Laura Knott for her accommodation of our special requests. And- a shout out to Rackelle for her delightful welcome and orientation. Five stars.

Lovely family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there over the Christmas holiday. It was perfect for us. There are two grownup bedrooms, a bunk room, and a full bath upstairs, and a bedroom and full bath downstairs, so plenty of room for everyone. The house is very spacious, but well laid out - a large den with fireplace at one end, a large LR with TV at the other, and a large kitchen in between, so groups can spread out. There is couch seating for about 6 people max in each room, so if you have more you will need to use dining chairs to all gather in one room. (We brought folding lounge chairs with us) We had 10 people and did not run into issues with running out of hot water or anything, and we all fit at the large dining table. The hot tub was very clean and well maintained, as was the whole house. The backyard is huge and semi-fenced and has a nice fire ring. The Walmart shopping plaza was very close and convenient for last minute grocery shopping. Unfortunately the weather did not allow us to take advantage of the River Riders' activities, but they are very close and convenient - about a 2 minute walk from the house. The highway (340) is pretty close to the house and in the driveway we worried it would be loud, but the house is very soundproof. In the winter it seemed very remote, quiet, and hidden away - probably in the summer there would be quite a bit more traffic past the house, going to River Riders', but the deck and hot tub are completely walled in by privacy fencing. Note that this is not in walking distance of Harpers Ferry proper - you would need a car to get to the National Park area.
