Big group happiness

  • 5 of 5

The farm house was very spacious and accomodating for our group of 11. We had fun cooking large meals in the big kitchen, eating in the big dining room, then hanging out in the big family room with a crackling fire and some board games. The wifi worked great even though we had at least dozen different devices. The number of bedrooms and bathrooms made us all comfortable. The weather outside was polar vortex cold (our stay was for the New Years Eve weekend) but the inside of the house was cozy. We also had a great dinner in downtown Frederick and a fun driving tour of Harpers Ferry.

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We have a large family and found this home perfect for our recent trip for our son’s wedding. Being in this beautiful home allowed us to spend time together with family we don’t get to see often. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is large and is stocked with lots of cooking utensils and serving pieces. There was a high chair and a pack n play for our grandson to use. The location was perfect! So close to everything in Frederick and we even got some time to go tour DC! We were so pleased we chose this property. It was wonderful!

Perfect venue to stay for our daughter's wedding in Thurmont

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter just got married at Thorpewood in Thurmont this past weekend. Last fall when the kids picked their date and venue, I knew I had to book a place soon that would house our large family coming from West and East coast. Sage Way Farm was beyond perfect for our needs! We hosted a pizza party the night before for the bridal party and out of towners with ease. The bride and her maids had hair and makeup done in largest family room on Saturday morning, and after the wedding a small after party was held. On Sunday morning we had the Omelette Man fix breakfast for those in the area. It was ideal for friends and family from far away to visit and hug before we all went back to "life". It was such a gracious and spacious setting, no one felt on top of each other, and our four younger grand daughters had a blast playing together in all the different rooms. I loved that there were multiple areas in which people could gather and visit. And so grateful to the huge laundry room adjacent to the kitchen which was my flower arranging room (had a sink and refrigerator as well) The owner - Renu, is very helpful and responsive to any and all problems which might occur. Everyone loved it and our time there. No one wanted to leave. I couldn't have found a better place for our immediate family to gather and chill out together! And please note the pictures online do not do justice as to how big and spacious it really is. Remember it is an older home, so there will be some quirks, but easily forgivable for the space and charm you have.

Fabulous Property for large family gathering

  • 4 of 5

Twelve adults and four children gathered for a reunion at Sage Way Farm. There is plenty of space to have a quiet space when needed, large kitchen to prepare meals, great outdoor area to join in the family fun. Three refrigerators, lots of bathrooms made life easy for us all.
