Things to Do
The Antietam Battlefield is just four miles away and a great place for history buffs, walkers, runners, cyclists, and anyone else interested in the details of the bloodiest battle of the Civil War. The first Saturday in December the park holds a candle vigil - one candle for each soldier who died - a spectacular sight to behold. The annual Independence Day fireworks celebration is another must see event.
The website Canal Towns is your gateway to the C&O Canal.
We are located one-half mile from the C&O Canal, mile marker 73 and each year we get to meet hundreds of people from all over the world who are cycling or hiking through on the 184 miles of the Canal or just taking in a short section. The Canal is an important piece of American history used from the 1820's thru 1924 to access coal in the Allegheny Mountains. When the railroad industry and damaging floods closed the canal for the last time in 1924 it sat dormant until the 1970's when it became the C&O Canal Historical Park.
Great Allegheny Passage
The Great Allegheny Passage is a (crushed gravel) rail trail that connects to the C&O Canal in Cumberland, MD, and continues through the Allegheny Mountains towards Pittsburgh. The Pittsburgh end is still under construction, but cyclists can currently access a continual stretch of trail from Cumberland to McKeesport, Pennsylvania.
The Potomac River sits in our backyard and can be accessed by the public boat ramp in Shepherdstown. This section of the river is flat and calm (unless it rains a lot), and is a great spot for fishing or recreational kayaking/canoeing.
