After spending too much time searching for what would be the “ideal” spot to shelter for a civil war history tour, and seeing the “Lookout” early on in that search, I quickly realized upon arrival that the right choice had been made, and I had wasted a lot of time. Upon stepping out of the car in the driveway on a perfect day, it was just one of those Zen moments. Spectacular view for miles in an authentic setting. The property itself is immaculate, inside and out. Plenty of room to spread out and relax inside, clean and well maintained. You’ll probably spend most of your time, when not roaming the countryside, on the large deck overlooking the battlefield for many more Zen moments. This placed made our trip and tied everything we needed into one convenient package. 100 stars in my book, you WILL NOT be disappointed. Sandy and Brian, Thank you. P.S. I highly recommend the “Black Hog” BBQ joint just inside of Fredrick for some of the best BBQ I’ve tasted, seriously, and there’s a pub in Harpers ferry… sorry can’t quite remember the name of that one.
