Antieta Overlook Farm, Keedysville, Maryland
A place with a mountain view.
Comments () | Published April 1, 2005

Keedysville, Maryland

In 1862, thousands of men fought over the area that's now Antietam Overlook Farm. You can see why. The farmhouse sits high on 95 acres with a view of four states.

The farmhouse is all warm pine inside. The best room is the Overlook, a second-floor suite with views on three sides, including from its fireplace, hot tub, and sun deck. Four of the five rooms have a large soaking tub and a screened porch.

This is a cozy, rustic place with all the amenities, including a common room with a stone fireplace and up-close views of deer, foxes, wild turkeys, and birds. Breakfast is ample; among the favorites are baked pears, frittatas, home fries with maple bacon, and waffles with coffee ice cream. Hiking, rafting, and antiquing are nearby.

Bottom line: Not precious, not too country, it's like staying at the cabin of a well-off friend--complete with grand views.

Antietam Overlook Farm, 800-878-4241; antietamoverlook.com; double rooms $135 to $225, including full breakfast.
