Welcome to our private woodland retreat! This stylish and secluded mid-century modern guesthouse is nestled on five acres in horse country in Highland, Maryland. Totally separate from our owners home, our guesthouse combines the serenity, privacy, and safety you crave with all the conveniences of modern life including: a full bath; kitchenette; internet; and a screened porch with access to our beautiful lighted and heated swimming pool and adjacent walking trails.
The guest house offers second story living in a unique woodland setting.
The flat is a large, stylishly furnished apartment with all the comforts and conveniences you’d expect. The contemporary design has a vaulted ceiling and 20-ft high windows with a spectacular unobstructed view of the forested hillside below. Features include: a new queen-sized bed, ample seating, a bistro table with settings for two, internet, and a big screen HD television with Netflix streaming video and a Bluray player with small number of movies. If you’re lucky you just may see our resident red fox or pileated woodpecker.
You enter the house via a private patio within the large fenced yard and pool. The patio has rocking chairs to lull away the hours with a good book and a cup of Joe or glass of wine. Just off the patio, is your private full bathroom complete with hair dryer and a changing room should you decide to take advantage of the heated swimming pool. We have a charcoal grill available on request.
Off of the patio, you enter the is the kitchenette complete with a Starbucks Verismo coffee system, microwave oven, toaster, and refrigerator and the stairway to the apartment above.
Although an easy drive to Washington, D.C., Baltimore, BWI airport, and Annapolis, you’ll feel a world away. Our location is ideal for those that want city access but to also want to feel “away from it all.” Come and enjoy this welcome respite to refresh the soul for singles, couples, families, or even traveling equestrians. Note: the house is not handicap accessible. You access the flat via a long stairway so we don't recommend booking here if you have mobility issues.
You reach the guest house by driving up the hill (don’t worry, it’s paved!), past the main house to enter our private gravel road to the left of the house. You continue along that road to the back of the house and park underneath the carport, and voila – you have arrived! You enter the gate to get to the guest house. We will provide the entry access code to you the day before your arrival.
Общение с гостями
We live in the main house year round along with our dogs, Beau & Belle, and are generally available if needed. We enjoy meeting our guests and are happy to make suggestions about dining or other needs during your stay. But, if peace and solitude is what you seek, you couldn’t make a better choice.
Другие важные подробности
We have many delightful features but the guest house doesn't have a washer and dryer, nor a full kitchen. The bathroom is downstairs off of the patio, so you'll be taking the stairs to use it. Also we have dogs who occasionally bark at a squirrel or passing deer. During hunting season, you may hear the occasional gun shot or two -- but don't worry, the local hunters are careful and they're not on the property. We are pet friendly, but if you plan to bring more than one, please let us know in advance.
Finally, during swim season if you wish to use our swimming pool we require you to sign a liability release form.
Visiting dogs must be up to date on required shots to be on the property. Your dog may be unleashed within the fenced-in pool area but must be leashed outside of it. Also, the main house has an electric dog fence. You may not leave your pets alone and unattended. You will be held responsible for all property damage caused by you, your guests, or your pets.
Air mattress available, on request.
No diving allowed in the pool. No pets in pool. We do require you sign a liability waiver if you plan to use the pool.
Note: The pool is open from mid-April through mid-October only.
