A Perfect Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We loved our long weekend at the Beautiful Cottage at "The Woods" resort. Starting with our welcome basket containing wine for us adults, candy and popcorn for my son and even doggy treats for our dog Bandit. The cottage contained everything one could possibly need, except for a flashlight, which we purchased from the dollar store and left for others to use. Our dog has never been so comfortable at another place as he was here. We got to do plenty of hiking in the area, which is why we decided on this location anyway. The leaves hadn't changed to their beautiful fall colors yet, but we had the most perfect weather, so it didn't bother us that it didn't look or feel like fall yet. We enjoyed the fire pit and used the metal marshmallow roasting sticks in the evening. We even roasted hot dogs over the fire. The decks and screened in porch were wonderful and my son loved the hammock. The living room was very comfortable and we enjoyed the large screen TV while watching Sleepy Hollow, which just happened to be on TV that weekend. We took the time to explore the property with our dog and we made it down to the stream at the base of the property. Plenty of little critters around and we saw deer every morning.

Two of the bedrooms claim to have queen size beds in them, however I don't think they were any bigger than full size and the mattresses were a little firm for our liking, but we slept just fine on them. There were extra blankets if we needed them, a hair dryer in the bathroom, extra toothpaste and shampoo if you happened to forget something, oh and we loved the fly swatter, or what is actually an execution wand for flies, which came in handy.

We just can't say enough wonderful things about this place or the property owners, who were just a text away if we needed anything. We will certainly rent again in the future.

Sincerely,

Corinne, Chris, Brendan and Bandit

Peaceful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place! Beautiful location surrounded by trees with lots of wild life, nature, and privacy yet close to so many places that offer other fun activities such as Baltimore, Washington DC, and the Blue Ridge Mountains. The cottage was so comfortable, very clean and with all the amenities we could have wished for. We had the most fantastic weather for the entire month of August and never had to use the a/c or heat but it was nice to know that it was available if needed. We loved going to sleep to the sound of crickets and owls and to wake up to bird serenades. Deer would come and visit on a daily basis and we just loved relaxing on the screened in porch and watch all the wildlife by the creek, The Woods community is so well cared for. Everyone we met was very friendly, out going and helpful. My fur girls and I really loved the beautiful, scenic walking trails and got a nice work out every day going up and down the hills. Our granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed the indoor and out door pools and the full service recreation center. The owners Jeremy and Courtney were wonderful! They quickly answered all our questions and went out of their way to make our stay the most comfortable and relaxing vacation we have had in a long time. The welcome basket was a really sweet touch, even dog treats for our girls - how thoughtful. We hated to leave and hope to stay at The Woods again.

Many thanks for opening your home to us!

Clean and taken care of, more than what was expected.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great stay here this summer. The owners went out of their way to make our stay memorable. Everything from milk bones for our dog, graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate for smores and even a container of night crawlers (knowing we were planning to fish). The house was very clean and provided us with the relaxation we were looking forward to. The Woods Resort and Sleepy Hollow Lake area are beautiful locations to explore. We all enjoyed fishing, swimming and hiking. Wildlife was there to greet us every time we came back "home" to the cabin. We enjoyed grilling out on the deck, eating breakfast on the screened in front porch and kayaking on the lake. The first day upon our arrival, my daughter and I took a nap in the hammock and got to watch hummingbirds come to the feeder it was attached to. We are all looking forward to a return vacation hopefully sooner than later. This is the perfect place for anyone wanting a vacation in a non-touristy location. Breakfast is great at the Patomic River Grill. you really cannot go wrong with this spot! Thank you again for your hospitality!!!

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd visit to Jeremy & Courtney's beautiful cabin. Our first 2 visits were in the fall. This trip in the spring was just as awesome. The weather was perfect. We especially enjoyed sitting out on the decks at night enjoying the peaceful woods. We visited Berkley Springs and found a nice restaurant, antique shops and indoor flea market. One gift store owner told us about a Cat Cafe that just opened. If you love cats like my daughter does - this is the place to visit - it was pretty cool. The outdoor pools were just a tad cold for us Floridians so we took advantage of the indoor pool. My daughter & son-in law who live in West Virginia were brave enough to jump in the outdoor pool and found it very refreshing.

Courtney and Jeremy were gracious as ever. You will not find a more beautiful cabin with all the amenities it offers. It is definitely our home away from home and we can't wait to visit again!
