Mossy Rock Cabin
Escape to your own private cabin nestled on three wooded acres along the Potomac River. Just an hour or so drive from metro DC, let West Virginia’s country roads take you to the place you belong.
The cabin is designed to let you unwind and leave your stress behind. You’ll be pampered with all the comforts of home while a natural wonderland awaits just outside your door.
Access to our amazing private riverfront is less than 200 yards from the cabin. Enjoy 150 feet of shoreline that’s reserved exclusively for you and the guests at our adjoining rental property. This picturesque, slow-moving stretch of the Potomac is ideal for fishing, kayaking, or relaxing on an inner tube.
Built in the 1940’s, this vintage cedar-shingled cabin is tucked away on three wooded acres. Beautifully renovated inside and out, you’ll appreciate the spacious comfort as well as luxuries like the tiled walk-in shower, rainfall showerhead, and heated floor.
The open-concept main-level includes a large, well-equipped kitchenette with dining area, spacious living room, and bedroom with a queen bed. The cozy loft features two twin beds.
The kitchen includes microwave, convection toaster oven, blender, toaster & refrigerator. A portable, single-burner induction cooktop is available, along with minimal induction-compatible cookware. Complete coffee and tea station including locally roasted whole beans, grinder, Chemex and electric kettle (traditional coffeemaker too). There is not a stove/oven.
The cabin also features a cozy west-facing front porch with rocking chairs, and a shady side patio with table/chairs, fire pit and gas grill with side burner. A few pots & pans are available for use with the grill.
INTERNET: Our Wi-Fi internet is fast enough for streaming Netflix, etc. on the Roku TV. There are occasional outages.
It’s just a 5-mile drive to quaint and charming Shepherdstown, and 10 miles to fascinating Harpers Ferry. History lovers will appreciate the close proximity to Antietam Battlefield, Harpers Ferry National Park, and many other Civil War sights. Fantastic hiking, river rafting, and biking along the C&O Canal await the adventurer.
Within a 10 mile radius you’ll find plenty of options for groceries, shopping, and dining.
