After a complete renovation, we decided the cabin would be perfect for Airbnb. It's completely separate from the main house and offers both of us a great deal of privacy. It is also warm and cozy yet extremely comfortable.

Please be aware that we have dogs on the property that have a great deal of freedom. If you are not comfortable with dogs, please do not book this cabin. If you are, we hope to see you.

DURING THE PANDEMIC WE WILL BE FOLLOWING AIRBNB'S ENHANCED CLEANING PROTOCOL.

The space
Come and stay in our guest cabin on our 6 acre retreat. Peace and quiet abound as you sit on your private front porch and enjoy the nature at your feet. Depending on availability, you'll leave with a half dozen fresh eggs laid by our chickens behind the cabin.

The cabin is equipped with a small kitchen area (no stove but with fridge, sink and microwave), full bath, living room and adjoining sleeping area. It has heat, AC, and a wood burning stove. There is also a 40" HDTV with all the cable channels (including HBO) and a nice selection of DVD's to watch. A full size airbed is available upon request.

All this and only 10 minutes to downtown Frederick with all its restaurants and shops. Washington, DC is less than 1 hour drive or you can take the nearby commuter train to Union Station in DC.

Where you’ll be

Frederick, Maryland, United States

We live just outside of Frederick, MD in a semi-rural setting. Yet getting to downtown Frederick takes only 10 minutes and we are very convenient to commuting routes to Washington, DC and Baltimore. The best of both worlds.

I am retired now and should be a man of leisure. Instead I am living my fantasy of traveling the world, being an innkeeper and helping fellow travelers. Since retiring, I've traveled to Vietnam, Cambodia, China, India, Hungary, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Poland, Portugal, the Azores, and Spain. Two summers ago, I was off to Romania, Moldova, Croatia, Slovenia and Australia. While the pandemic has messed up my travel plans, I was recently able to visit Lithuania, Latvia and Finland. So I know what it's like to be on the road and what it takes to make someone feel comfortable in a strange location. I am also into sports cars and I volunteer once a week in DC at a museum. My wife Dana is into dogs and we have three Barbado daTerceiras (Portugal's newest recognized breed) that we brought back from the Azore Islands and Portugal. Also two cats, three geese and a bunch of chickens.
