À propos de ce logement
Peaceful countryside surrounds you, woods, streams, and beautiful country road all offer a magical experience. The house itself is a restored farmhouse with loads of room and porches where you can soak in a sunrise and a sunset. There is a fire ring with benches by the small spring house at the creek. Birders paradise! Harper's Ferry, Frederick, Shepherdstown offer loads of fun and history. There are 2 other houses, a re-purposed Dairy Parlor, and Big Red Barn available for retreats too.
Spring House is a part of Fox Haven - a historic organic farm and non-profit ecological education center located along the Catoctin Creek in Jefferson, Maryland, within one hour of Washington D.C. and 15 minutes from the charming town of Frederick, MD. The restored farmhouse is in a tranquil location, surrounded by fields, forests, and trails. Wide-planked wooden floors, found treasures from the farmland and creek, beds piled high with handmade quilts, and porches with views that immediately lower your blood pressure and make you sigh, “aah” create a haven for a weekend getaway, family vacation, working retreat, and learning adventure.

When you want to explore beyond the farm, lovely downtown Frederick offers a variety of shops, award winning restaurants, parks, performing arts theaters, Frederick Keys minor league baseball, and free concerts during the summer months. Jefferson, I dare say, has one of the best pastry shops within 100 miles. Let the sweet smell of homemade donuts and cakes guide you! Harper’s Ferry, Antietam, Sharpsburg, and even Gettysburg are all within a 20-50 minute drive for those who relish civil war history. For the adventurer in you, take a rafting or tubing trip down the Shenandoah or Potomac Rivers, or head up to Annapolis Rocks for a climb, or even hike a section of the Appalachian Trail – all within 20-30 minutes of the farm. There are several wineries within 20-40 minutes of the farm that give tours and tastings regularly, as well as breweries that create some tasty beer.

Fox Haven Organic Farm & Learning Center is my passion. I am happiest when touring young and older folks around the farm, teaching about where our food comes from, healthy farming and gardening that leads to healthy soil, waterways, humans, and critters. Forests are my playgrounds. Our young adult children help and that is the best! Frederick, MD is a favorite place on this planet to eat, walk, talk with shop owners and artists, and attend Quaker Meeting for Worship. This precious part of Maryland is a wonderful place to visit and live.
